Well, yesterday is all over, thank goodness! Because my appointment was in the afternoon, I had all day to dread it! I kept myself busy, making some cards for the local summer fayre, but my mind kept wandering to what laid ahead in the afternoon. As it's quite personal, I'd rather not go into what I had done, but the thing I was dreading the most was the local anaesthetic, which was quite bad, but once I had that over and done with, it was fine - until the anaesthetic wore off! Then I turned to wine and paracetamol in the evening - not thinking about mixing the two - being an ex-nurse and all. Oh well, I had a lovely sleep! Anyhoo, that should be the whole sorry affair over and done with - just have to wait and see, but hopefully this should be the last time I bore you over the subject.
When I was having a look in Joseph's book bag last night, I found a note from school saying that the children could wear either an England or football strip on the day England play in the World Cup, and if a match falls on a Saturday, they can wear them on the Friday. Luckily my friend told me there was a match on Saturday as quite feankly I have absolutely ZERO interest in football, and neither does David or Joseph, but you know what children are like when they are the only ones in the whole school not wearing the same as the others. It really is isolation for them. I do get quite fed up with the lack of notice with these things - finding a note in Joe's school bag at 7pm the night before, with no way to get to a shop really isn't on, but there we are. SO what did I do? I was just going to send him in a red t-shirt, but I knew that wouldn't suffice, so I got out the NEW Artiste's Acrylic Paint from docrafts (please see note below the picture), an old white t-shirt and me paint brush, and painted one meself, drugged up on paracetamol and charddonay at 10.30pm. I think I did a good job, considering the circumstances!
Now I must say, these paints are waterbased, and therefore not suitable for t-shirts that are going to get wet (ie washed) and Joseph will probably come home covered in red paint, but needs must - so please don't think the Artiste's Acrylic Paints are waterproof and suitable for fabric, as they're not!
I also wanted to show you a new addition to my Craft Studio - a wonderful set of Copic markers!!! I decided to be a naughty girl and treat myself for being a good girl!
Ooo, look at 'em all - just makes you want to dive in, doesn't it!
