So to the canvas, I gave it a coat of paint, wasn't bothered how it looked as it would just be the back, back, background - you'll see what I mean shortly! Whilst it was drying, I picked the card, and other bits and bobs, got them all together. Then I found a favourite stamp, so did some stamping. Now it was time for... dinner!
I messed around trying different arrangements for the bits and bobs that will go on. When I looked up I realised the sun was out! Yesterday had been a washout, and very cold, at one point there was white stuff.
Not sure what I'll be doing tomorrow, it will be the anniversary of mum's death. I was disappointed when a friend, a very close friend had forgotten about it. She had skyped me and asked how I was, when I said I felt really down she asked why. She is a good friend, but sometimes she doesn't think beyond herself. She was more upset when I said I'd have to pull out of our weekend away, well the electricity and gas bill arrived, and it was more than I had budgeted for. I have the money, and it is partly my own fault that it is high, there were times when I had put the heating on meaning only to leave it on for an hour, and had then forgotten about it. But with the bill being high it meant I had a tough choice, cancel the weekend and pay the bill, or do both and feel the pinch. It was a no brainer, I'd rather cancel the mini break and then not have to worry about money, wasn't really looking forward to the long drive to Glastonbury anyway. In fact last time it took so much out of me that I didn't actually enjoy my break. I can plan something for later in the year, and when the weather is hopefully warmer and there is sunshine. I also wasn't happy when I said to my friend that she could come here if she wanted, she has a well paid job, so I was mystified why she starting dithering and muttering about petrol costs. So it was okay for me to fork out £70 for petrol, but not her who gets nearly 3 times as much as me per month. Mmm... left me with food for thought.
Now I'm off to do some writing. Hope you've all had a lovely weekend.
