We have had the water cut off today from 9 til 5pm. It was a planned thing, but as usual we forgot in the Curd household and I only remembered by sheer chance at 8.45am. Off I went, filling jugs, pans and anything I could get my hands on. I remembered my Dad recommending that we fill the bath to be able to flush the toilet, and so I started to run the bath with cold water. It takes ages for our bath to fill (we have low water pressure), and so I came into my craft room next door to the bathroom to catch up on my e-mails.
Some time later I had my head phones on, watching and listening to Most Haunted (as I always do whilst working on the challenge of the week and Project of the Week instructions for the Do Crafts website), when I heard a funny bubbling noise. what could it be - then it struck me - OMG the bath is still running! I immediately got up and legged it into the bathroom, causing mayhem and madness. My head phones were still attached to my head and my laptop, and sprung off my head. I knocked over the container which holds all my colourbox eye queue and single inks, but had to leave them and run to turn off the bath! When I got there the taps weren't running, and the bath wasn't over flowing. I really don't remember turning them off. I must have done it subconsciously. When I returned to my room, disaster had struck. All mu inks were all over the floor, lids off and colour scattered lover the laminate flooring. Also all the eye queues had come apart so I had to spent a good 2o minutes matching up lids to inks and the stacks of colour. I had also broken my head phones, but it could have been worse - I could have pulled over my laptop and smashed it!
In the afternoon, I went downstairs to make the tenth cup of coffee of the day (as you do), put a long handled spoon into the coffee, and proceeded to flick the spoon and therefore freeze-dried coffee all over the kitchen worktop and floor. So off I went to clean that up.
Soon after, I was sat at my laptop, typing up instructions and supply lists for the cards I have made for some new video's to be filmed next week. I took a drink of my coffee, which was still nearly full, and - you know what's coming next don't you - I didn't get my coffee onto my coaster properly and it spilled all over my precious cards, the phone, and my beautiful core'dinations cardstock. Nearly a full cup of coffee - I couldn't believe it. Quick as a flash I sprung into action, but not quick enough. One of the cards which took me ages to create a unique background is ruined I think. the others might be salvageable, I'll have to see what Lou (the photographer)thinks, and really put photoshop to the test! If they are ruined, I will make them again, as you all know, the thing what takes the time is the design after all.
Speaking to my best friend Sheila on the webcam , she reminded me that that should be it, as things come in threes. However, she was wrong, as when I was rearranging the freezer to fit in the shopping, I knocked over a box of fish fingers and they all fell to the floor!
I honestly think that someone upstairs (or below, if you believe in that too) has something against me. Maybe when I wake up in the morning, I will have a better day.
Putting my bad day aside, I have a card to share with you today. It's project of the week over on Do Crafts! It's called I Love you More Than....Chocolate Cake!, and you can see why. I really wanted to make a card that would be perfect for a lady to give to her man, after all the ladies do hold the majority vote when it comes to card making. If you want to have a go at making your own piece of chocolate cake (Sorry, it's not edible!) there is a template for you to follow. You can find the instructions supply list and templates here.
Off again to create mayhem and madness wherever my feet fall! See you soon.
Love, Clare x
