Today has been another “meh” day, I just in one of those “cant be bothered” slumps, I think its probably the weather causing it – typical British person has to talk about / complain about the weather right 🙂 But Its so grey and gloomy here and its only September!
Nothing much to say for myself yet today (I say that now lets see how it goes), We are still in school summer holiday time, and hubby is off work too, but due to the weather we are not doing much. So we had a late morning, I had forgotten to buy cereals, so it was a treat breakfast of crumpets and pancakes. Kids didn’t mind that – apparently they are much better than cereals anyway and they would take them any day 🙂 I guess the loaded sugar in the morning is always a good start when you are 12 & 15 right 🙂
Hubby and I went out for our daily walk, we managed 4 miles today in just over 1 hour, pretty much normal timing for us. We bumped into our wedding photographer, which was nice to actually speak to someone different.
Art today .. hmm haven’t done much, but I have joined #sewtember with Mixed Media & Beyond I do have to ask myself WHY I put myself under this sort of pressure. I don’t sew by hand, so why do a 30 day challenge… I am not sure what the final outcome will be, but each day we receive a daily prompt and get to make our own piece of mixed media art, using a piece of 10cm x 5cm natural fabric. I have assumed that will be my base and anything I do will be put onto that. So I have actually done both days today. What do you think? I had to teach myself how to chain stitch, satin stitch and french knot to do these! they probably took me around 3 hours to plan, colour, sew and photograph! I think i need to choose something a bit quicker for tomorrow.
Hubby cooked a lovely evening meal, I’m writing this post listening to the evening Simon Mayo drive time show on Greatest Hits Radio, he does play some awesome music.
I’ve been making some decisions on the number of paid subscriptions I have and to that end I’ve cancelled a few, mainly because although I like them I’m not making the best of them, and given my art course it will only get worse, so decisions had to be made and well it will save the purse a little right?
Until tomorrow ……
