Ugh. I think I am getting a cold. I hardly ever get them and, when I do, I am quite pathetic. Sniffly and moany and pathetic. I think I hate the time they waste. When you’re sick you can’t do anything constructive and you just want to curl up in a ball and die, loudly with lots of complaining and coughing. Right now I feel a bit hot in the face and my throat is dry and scratchy. I have loaded myself up with Vitamin C, Garlic and Horseradish. I hate bought throat lozenges and will be making myself soup for dinner (capsicum with added horseradish and ginger and garlic – it is possible no one will want to come near me for a few days). I am drinking lemon and ginger tea and am about to pour a jar of honey down my throat. Ugh. I think I am even more pathetic now I am on my own – not that hubby was particularly good at playing nursey but it is always better to have someone around to fetch you tissues and get you hot water bottles and look sympathetic.
However, I shall try not to give in to the lurgy. I have one more day of my short holiday left and I do not want to waste it. I have had a few nice days of crafting with my Mum and I don’t want to stop now that I am back home again. Today we went to a big craft show at the show grounds and had a great time – but I will update you on that next post. The days before were spent collaging and playing with clay at my Mum’s. We had been wanting to make some clay ornaments and beads for some time and decided this would be the week we made a commitment to do so. We soon learned we are lacking in sculpting skills and probably had visions of elaborate finished pieces that were way beyond our actual abilities. Never mind, we had fun and made a mess which is the important bit 🙂
I made a few round beads that I want to paint once they are dry. I also made some pendants (again, faces) and a brooch and a little “L.O.V.E” statue that I think is kinda cute. They all need to be sanded a bit and/or painted and varnished. Fun! Time-consuming! Messy! But definitely fun.
Little L.O.V.E statue. (you can’t see the word very clearly here but it is near the bottom.
Speaking of bottoms, she has one. A butt that is!..but you can’t see that either here)
“Face” beads and pendant…
Now I have to unpack all my bags (I’ve been staying at Mum’s and I always overpack) and find my house under all the rubble. I want to be ready to get up early tomorrow, possibly go for a walk if I can get motivated enough and then do a solid day’s crafting as I won’t get to do any for a while due to pesky work commitments (so inconvenient this work business!). I also plan on eating the fudge I bought at the craft show in a moment of weakness. I want to get back onto my healthy eating so will have to consume the fudge quickly so as not to ruin my healthy week. That’s my story and I am sticking to it. Fudge is good for sore throats, right?
Hope you are having a great weekend, free from lurgies and full of fun and fabulousness! 🙂
