It seems that I can't escape bottoms
at the moment.
Two weeks ago
it was my friend Angies
but this week it is my bottom on show
(sorry, no pictures available).
People who know me well
will know that I don't have many clothes,
this is by choice.
In my working days I had to wear a suit
and dress up all the time and
now that I have retired I just have
one pair of 3/4 pants for home
and 1 pair for going out
and yes I do wash them, I just do it strategically.
Sorry I digress,
this morning whilst cleaning out and feeding my chickens
I noticed that it was a little more
breezy than usual in the bottom area.
When I got inside I had a look in the mirror and spotted the problem straight away.
I had a dirty great tear in my pants, so big in fact
that my butt cheek was on full view
(the extra bits that stick out from my knickers anyway)
and this presented a huge problem for me, as I don't like to sew
Now a staple usually goes a long way in this situation
but of course you can see my problem if I go putting staples into
the part of my pants that I sit on.
Frantic calls to my mother and she told me about an iron on patch
thingy that will seal the hole and save my dignity.
I will have to get out and buy one of these patches,
just hope I remember to take my pants off before ironing it on!!
To my desk.... and if you wish to see others around the world
go here to the Stamping Ground for WOYWW.
My lovely friend Angie has returned to England
and so today I sat and finished my ginger flower.
I have a confession to make,
I have been showing you my neat corner of the room and never
showing you the other side, so,
today I will reveal my mess in all its glory.
Here is the real me (sorry Tracey).
And there is still another wall
but I don't want to overload your eyes.
There are cupboards of oil and acrylic paints, plus glass paints,
all sorts of pads of drawing paper, tins of lacquer, boxes of prints,
folders full of my ideas (you now the ones, you will try it one day),
and goodness knows what else in there.
Of course I keep telling my husband that there
wouldn't be any mess if he let me take over the front lounge.
Can't understand why he won't believe me.
To finish off on a better note
here is the ginger.
After seeing it here,
I need to tweak the bottome leaves
but it is pretty much finished.
Next week I hope to have done some
actual art for once,
