What the **** am I doing at the keyboard at 7am on one of the handful of days a year that I could conceivably have a sleep in?
I'm feeling tired, and frustrated is what!
Thanks to the bloody FMS I've been awake on and off since about 3am. Watched a Torchwood DVD through closed eyelids, hoping that would lull me back into Morpheus' arms, but not really successful though I did nod off there for a bit. So I put the light on at 5.30ish and started reading and finally gave up on any idea of getting back to sleep at 7. So here I am, still in my PJs , breakfasted, cup of chai at hand, and all ready to upload the final photos of Kannon's Carp - going with Robb and Ms Vicki Frou Frou's excellent naming suggestions - and proof of some wooly retail therapy [ all KFYS legal too ] yesterday in Bendigo, and what's happened?
Nothing is what!
I can't find the bloody lead for the camera :[
damn, damn, and double damn
It's going to be a long day
Chris and Maz are arriving mid morning followed by Nadie with her friends Cass, Natty and Ross at about dinnertime.
I should probably be cleaning ... but I think the ACK-rylic ripplicious something-or-other is going to get a row or two first.
Anyway this is probably a good opportunity to catch up on some photos that I haven't managed to fit in this week
Sylvia Reeves and I have a few of our pieces in The Coffee Bean as part of the State Festival that runs till Sunday.
I actually changed some over after the first day because the owner was a little concerned that none of them were for sale, so I dredged up a couple that I could be forced to part with if someone gave me the right price but they're a bit pedestrian.
So this is the one I took down and replaced with this
and put a price on this [ which then ended up halfway behind the drinks machine when it got moved ]
and these last three glorious things are Sylvia's: flowing organic curves overlade withfinely embroidered birds and bugs
she is something of a contradiction, our Sylvia... someone who works in Educational IT and generates most of her designs by computer but turns into a rabid Luddite when it comes to piecing, applique and embroidery with amazing - and frequently prizewinning- results.
