Sorry I missed my mid-week post again this week. On Wednesday I took the day off work and did my Christmas shopping. I left home at 10am and didn’t get back until 6pm. My husband said “What have you been doing all this time?”. He does all his shopping online or just buys vouchers for people! Anyway I can’t say I was full of festive spirit, but I bought a lot of stuff and spent a lot of money and now it’s all wrapped up it looks OK.
I am disappointed that this year I haven’t had time to make presents for my friends, but I just didn’t feel up to is in November and then ran out of time to even start in December.
My mood has improved this month and I will be glad once Christmas is out of the way, it’s not really my favourite time of year but at least I am having a long break from work so I’m bound to have time for some art. I am hoping too that T picked up on those massive hints I dropped for new art supplies.
We have some family coming to stay just after Christmas so yesterday I decided to do some housework, and managed to put my back out within about an hour, I was only bending over to pick something up too and it wasn’t even heavy. Fortunately it’s not too bad and the painkillers are helping to relieve it so I can carry on with my tasks. Today’s task is to clean the grout between the tiles in the bathroom. It has to be done because recently I’ve been standing in the shower looking up at the tiles and thinking ‘Yuk, that looks horrible’! The truth is I’m not really cut out for domesticity, if I did it more often it wouldn’t have got into such a state, but unfortunately I can always find more interesting things to do than clean and tidy 😦
However I promise you that by the time I finish today it will SPARKLE!
So this page is the last page in my A4 journal which I started in October 2011 and is a page I did for Traci Hanson’s Journal Quest on 21 Secrets. I found a Big Bird and a Polar Bear cub in my painting. Strange eh!
Have a great week everyone
