I really need glasses. It is no longer a case of “I might need glasses…” and I can’t ignore it any longer. My squint has become almost permanent and I am no longer able to get through the day without a headache or feeling like my eyes are have run a marathon. I have those crappy specs from the chemist and I use them sometimes but they’re not ideal and I really need a professional to outfit my eyeballs properly.
I have been putting it off because of the expense (tightwad, tightwad…) but it is false economy and I need to just bite the bullet and get some real glasses. It’s not a vanity thing – I think I actually look ok with specs on, and think glasses are pretty cool on most people. Maybe I can even fool people into thinking I am intelligent! 🙂 My nephew has them and he’s gorgeous. Plus, being a librarian, glasses kinda go with the cliched territory, right?
I have been trying to draw and colour this week, with mixed results. I find I am not able to focus very well and I am colouring outside the lines with annoying regularity. Ugh. SO annoying. And a waste of time because it renders whatever I am doing a bit worthless and un-usable (especially if I chuck a wobbly and throw it in the bin in disgust).
Anyway, some little peeps to make into cards. I had already had them drawn (see THIS post) – they just needed colouring. I am still experimenting with different card stock and marker pens to get the right result. I like the first little lady the best – she’d kinda cute – but I will keep going and draw/colour some more. Still wishing I could do eyes…maybe when my own are fixed I will be able to manage them 🙂
Have a bright and colourful day everyone x
