A little hiccup...

Morning folks...I've had a blinder of a week...ticked lots of stuff off the crafty list but also had a complete nightmare with a project I can usually make in my sleep...I just couldn't get my head around the scoring measurements for some stupid reason and this is probably Version 6 or 7...
finally the "get a grip woman" atitude kicked in and all is good...
pathetic I know...makes you wonder how I managed to land a job as a Fiskars Demonstrator working with gadgets and tools because sometimes the simplest of tasks makes my brain turn to mush and don't mention my inability to translate the simplest of instructions...suddenly I'm confronted with a foreign language of gobbledegook....if a door says "PUSH" nine times out of ten I will "PULL"...get my drift...so this particular fait accompli merits a great big round of applause....a cuppa and feet up for the rest of the day. Unfortunately I am the slave as well as the boss around here so I doubt that's going to happen. So what's on my list of things to do today...well where do I start...take your pick...
there's a door and frame in the cubbyhole that requires painting...
along with 2 humungous units still waiting the Annie Sloan treatment...
a list of crafty stuff as long as my arm
a kitchen that would be condemned if we had a visit from Environmental Health
and a garden that looks like an Amazonian jungle
so if the weather behaves...I'm tempted to put the traumas of measuring chopping and kitting behind me and spend the day outdoors armed with secateurs and a pile of bin bags...a "short back and sides" mega pruning session may be just what's needed to give the old brain a rest from all the techy stuff. A killing 2 birds with one stone adventure...a day topping up the Vitamin D and giving the garden a Spring make-over sounds good to me.
Have fun whatever you decide to do today
Hugs Kath xxx

Ohhhhh flowers... so pretty! My garden is WEEKS away from coming alive. We still have 2 more months of snow off and on...BOOOO! So it's nice to see something other than brown. Although, there are some trees budding!

I'm hoping for a day in the garden today too. Let's hope the weather gets it right for both of us! Have fun. X

Hi Kath no different with my fog brain at times. A bit stuck with tackling jobs at the moment as I had a bad fall in the park a couple of weeks ago walking pooch. Hopefully my wrist will improve after a few sessions of physio. Enjoy whatever you get up to.x

I am so glad that it is not just me ... lol! I got a new phone this week and can't for the life of me figure out how to use it - went on-line but it assumes you know 'something' already..... sigh.... I don't...
Do be careful of your back whilst in the garden and try to get hubby to do sine of the heavy stuff... Hugs, Anne xx

You've piqued my curiosity now...making boxes with postage stamp fronts? Hmm, hope we get to see the full finished project after the class. Please? Enjoy your garden time. Take care to not over do. Hugs

Sounds good to me, though here in Norfolk the weather is grey and still chilly. I think I'll stay indoors with a log fire, embroidery, and a bottle of wine Wow! Life really is awful when you're retired. Blessings.

Lucky #7....I've done the same thing. Working on an album now. Wonder of wonders....if you cut something short twice....it's still short! Sometimes I think I leave my brain in bed! Your finished work is lovely! From the description of your "chore list"...I'm wondering if we don't live together! Today I'm taking a break from crafting to do some house work....I say that now! we'll see! Have a great week!

Well it's chucking it down here Kath so maybe you were let off with all that gardening for today, sounds too much like hard work anyway, get yourself installed in your cubbyhole and do some crafting instead!

Well you managed it in the end Kath and it's lovely so pleased you finished it .....your photos are lovely at least you have some colour in your garden not like us it's water logged at the moment with all the rain we are having it would be nice to put some colour in it but l don't suppose it will happen until the garden is sorted with drainage ......so annoying!! hope your well take care xx
