Did not feel good at all this morning - chest still hurts and coughing like an old hex. Am convinced I have something more than bronchial chest activity ... am suspecting pneumonia but not like horrendous pnuea, just a little. Any cyber docs out there wanna give their verdict?
As soon as I came back from dropping belle off at school I went to bed for 4 hours to shake it off and woke up fresh as a daisy. I had parcels to pack off today AND Technique Tuesday/Sticky Mitts to organise. I also have a shoot with a lady whose name reminds me of toffee on saturday, we got talking on the phone (her name is Carmel) and after like 4 years chatting I discovered she is a plicewoman. That means I have to hide my stash of crack cocaine, heroine and cannabis when she arrives. Damn!!!
The kids finished off their collages from last week and made this valentines card. Each kid put their own "stamp" on it but this was the map and they chose different little routes to make it their own. Belle loved it which was so important for me to watch. The kids went home with two finished projects, full bellies and a tick in the box for inking and ripping techniques. (look at how cute this kid is, peering over her glasses. She does this daily - I WUBS HER!)
I also launched, in conjuncsh with Katie some amazing freebies (see belows post!). These took an age to do and although our creativity is diverse, the complimenting colour palette meant we could design the kits in our own homes. Ive yet to meet Katie even though she only lives half an hour away!When I dropped the kids off at home (yes... I pick them up from school, I teach, we make stuff, I feed them ham toasties, I water them and take them home!!) I went to the gym to beat myself up. Its a fabulous feeling coming home all refreshed and wanting to get going again. Belle was in her element... I think tuesdays could well be her favvo day!
I came back into my den after spanking ellie and sending her to bed with no supper (and we MIGHT live in a shoe!...duh! Kidding!) and I came to catch up on the PC. My PC has been my saviour this last few weeks. Prior to crimbo I got sick of it and forums and stuff but now we are buds and to make me feel at one with it again, Ive decorated the desk where its sits with this wonderful tea light lampshade and my favvo smelly candle - "Bay Leaves" by Prices Candles (have you whiffed their Fresh Linen range? WOW!). Whenever I get a new candle, i always engrave into it with a pin ... dont know why, perhaps Im fascinated in secretly becoming a wax artist! Its kind of snug in my den now and judging by the amount of work I do in here, I want to be surrounded by pwityy things to help me re-energise.Im off to finish off a lot of stuff, make a quick digi kit and then bed.
All in all - a very productuve tuesday even though I slept 4 hours of it. Can't be bad really, its like buying one and getting one free.
