Well after doing in excess of 60 hours work last week I found myself struggling to get out of bed this morning - I mean what's wrong with me. So I didn't - get out of bed - well not initially anyway - I decided to sit and savour my morning cuppa in bed and rest my eyes a little. Then I dragged myself out (finally) and got ready but with no speed at all. I woke said 11 year old and told him "you're not going to breakfast club" and then headed downstairs.
I look dreadful, fit to drop and a full day ahead with a meeting half way through the other side of Sheffield, not exactly what I need on a Monday. I was so tired last night I actually felt poorly with it, this morning I'm just very very tired so might end up feeling that way again come this afternoon. My job is mentalling taxing but physically it doesn't get me moving around an awful lot (I sit at a desk), so I've got back pain from lack of movement and my brain is so very tired. Added to this I've done zero - I repeat zero crafting since returning home and it's making me quite a sad person at the moment. So if you have the luxury of crafting time today - create - anything - just create and if you do create let me know what you made so I can admire, because I can't see me heading to my craft table any time soon.
If I had the day off I'd get six photos I've been wanting to scrap (any six) and then I'd go and find some papers and cardstock to match, I'd probably use the sketches from the scrap 365 magazine from this month as a starting point (which are downloadable from their website) and play for a bit. I might cut myself some cardstock into postcard sized pieces and then throw some paint at them - literally, maybe add an image or two, some squiggly lines, a mask to create a little mail art, I might rummage through my alterables box and start on something "I've been meaning to alter" - ooh to create - I would I'd do all that. I'd play my music loudly or I'd put on a film to keep me company and I'd keep my cup constantly filled with hot tea. It would be bliss, but today, well today I'll go to work instead and dream of a day off all to myself - the luxury!
Sharing a layout from an age ago now (ooh and I forgot to mention but I'm aware of a local crop that meets once a month on a Saturday in a church hall at Broom in Rotherham, they charge £5 half day, £10 full day. There is plenty of space, hot water on tap and refreshments all day long. Lots of encourage and lots of great chat too. If you live local, let me know if you want the details of the next one and I'll post on here.)
A photo from an age ago (taken on the duck bread eating day by said 11 year old on my phone!) It was pink so it's poor on the red's again but I took the photo ages ago and have since learnt I need to work with my white balance
