I am going stir crazy - and just don't know what to do with myself.
I can't read, can't do much crafting - as you have read, the wooden ATC took me days, I shouldn't really be on here - but I won't be long.
I thought I would distract myself sorting out my garden studio as it's been hammering down with rain all day.
I decamped to a tiny room indoors winter 2010 due to bad weather not much fun trudging up the garden in deep snow - although once inside it's cosy and warm and I have internet connection.
The builders commandeered it during the summer for all their materials whilst we had the garden room added.
Then this past winter we had lots of snow too - so apart from a bit of flower arranging it's been abandoned.
I got distracted all right - just sitting looking out of the windows at the views - the chooks running around in the rain, and digging for worms and generally having hilarious fun
I daydreamed of the summer, and the roses outside the window, the flower borders filled with colour
The gooseberries on the side of the garage getting lush and plump.
I opened some big boxes - which I found contained some of my eldest son's wedding photo's in Japan, and sat and daydreamed of their traditional Japanese wedding a temple, and the guests dressed in beautiful kimono's and the gentlemen in smart black suits and white shirts, and white gloves.
Haruko had the most beautiful white kimono and headress for the monk's ceremony and blessing, and my son was dressing in the tradition Japanese style too - looking very handsome.
Then Haruko changed for the wedding reception at a big hotel, and wore a stunning beautiful embroiderd silk kimono and the traditional headress that goes with.
Then I pulled myself together after quite a while, and had finished looking at several other photo albums, and got tidying again. Do you get side-tracked?
I did some tidying up - sorting out things to go - then putting them back in drawers 'just in case'
I bet you can't spot the difference - but there is a lot, including packing up lots of oak floor boards and moving them!
Still - I do have some empty drawers now, and I have decided to move all my polymer clay 'equipment' in here - and maybe some of my stamping and painting, and gluing and inking.........
Well just the polymer clay stuff first, and the sewing machine, and perhaps I'll move my metal stuff and start playing with that in a few weeks time when my eyes are properly sorted and healed.
Best go back indoors - it's time for tea.
