yes a little TLC is needed at the moment. The from me to me type! A run of 3 12 hour shifts has left me well....totally knackered to be honest! I have had 2 days off and I slept most of yesterday. Ah it was blissfull! I seriously can't remember the last time I felt so tired. So sleep was what was needed and sleep I got. Lots and lots of the stuff!
Thankfully I woke feeling a little brighter this morning and embarked on completing the dreaded tax return! 6 hours later and it was all done and submitted! You gotta love this online tax return malarkey! Easy peasy...well once you have all the figures sorted that is. And get this....THEY OWE ME MONEY!!!! Ha! Thats a first!
Sooo once the paperwork was sorted I had a little 30min power nap and onto the ironing. Yes I live life on the fast lane!!! Tonight I'm having a little pamper night :-) As I type I have hair mask, eye mask and face mask insitu. It's not purdy but totally necessary as I am pig sick of people telling me how awful I look :-( Yes I KNOW I look rubbish....but I have been sick for gawds sake! I have one those faces that if I lose 3lbs my cheekbones become really noticeable. So you can imagine that having lost a stone in weight my face is looking pretty gaunt. I am trying to put the weight back on. Eating chocolate and cheese by the bucketfull but its just gonna take some time.
So with the tiredness and tax returns etc unfortunately there has been no hooking going on in this house. I have yearned to pick it up but am being very disciplined (for once!!!) and the crochet has stayed in the bag. I have however been doing a little blog surfing :-) I just happened upon Kirsty's site last night and saw a link to a workshop by this lady!!! Wow I was totally blown away!
Suzi Blu does the most amazing mixed media folk art. I just love it!!!! It actually made me want to get all creative again so have signed up for Le Petit Dolls workshop.
I honestly can't remember the last time I painted, was probably about 20 odd years ago (yikes!!!) but am raring to go! And mixed media is something that I have never really got to grips with so its win win all round I say :-)
Til next time x
