Back to normal!
Anyway after yesterdays spot of crafting, thought I'd have a go at a sunny picture. I did watch Barbara Grey yesterday, and noticed how she made her clouds, only it didn't work for me, maybe the secret is to use a brand new versamark stamp pad? So I used two different blues, and then found a white ink pad! And set to work, just used some cotton wool screwed up, and the dab, blot technique that our Barbara loves. Repeated the procedure for the hills, using two different greens, a dark and light green, mixed with yellow and white, using a mask to get the definition. Not bad for a first attempt.
Well it is Sunday, and so I have my one indulgence, a packet of crisps, salt and vinegar tonight, tho I no longer seem to have the munchies. I'm being more active, but at the same time readdressing my food intake, just monitoring the choc biscuits, I've switched back to my apples, well I only like Cox's, they to me are the only apples that have any flavour. I love my veggies, usually my plate has more veggies than anything else - yep even sprouts and cabbage! Can't get enough of the stuff. Had a disaster last week with some mashed potato, used up a baking potato, which normally cook very well, but this one didn't! It was rubbish, had to throw most of it away as it had started to go black while boiling. My mash is usually very good.
Well it seems to have cooled down at last.... I'm not against hot weather, but it can be TOO HOT. Spare a thought for us who have to endure umpteen hot flushes during the day! It was kind of amusing today, me and my God Daughter were suffering at both ends of the spectrum, she had bad period pains and I was having a hot flush. Great to be female...
Have a lovely week... and take good care
