Oh world, you make my head spin.
some small things that are not, in the scheme of things, catastrophic –
1. I bumped my worktable, which caused my screenprinting screen to fall directly onto my pincushion, where a needle neatly punctured it. What a goose. Doing this sort of thing just makes me feel so silly.
2. My phone died – not such a problem, except it had a year and a half of unbacked up photos on it. Again, silly. Won’t do that again. Mostly I can let them go, but I’m pretty sad about losing the only existing photos of me with my niece and cousins as babies. If I don’t think about it too much it’s not too bad.
3. Gumboot weather has started, which is great, but it reminded me that my gumboots have split and continue to do so more and more. Damn un-waterproof wellies. Thinking about having a crack at them with some silicone glue. Any other suggestions would be well appreciated.
I’m learning a new game, wherein I only take on one learning project at a time. My first indication of success came when I thought, as I often have, about how good it would be to learn how to blow glass. Then I thought that maybe I would work a bit more on learning to sew, maybe gain a wee bit of proficiency first, before taking on something else. Which is a new thing for me. I have to remember – I don’t have to do everything at once. I have a while. I’m not running out of time. …….right? So for now, I’ll keep sewing. There’s an awful lot to learn, after all.
Question – at risk of showing my age and asking a question to an audience of none, in Lift Off (awesome Australian kids show from the early 90s), was EC faceless in Waldorf doll tradition? That’s never occurred to me before. Just wondered.
It’s nice being able to be excited about things again, at least sometimes.
