Floppy doll day


Starting afresh

I reckon I must have gone too far recently in trying to expand my eating possibilities whilst my digestives are building up again.  I obviously overreached myself.  Yesterday evening it was diverticular horrors, faintings, and all out explosions which quite took the shine off my day and, as it was my birthday, it certainly made it memorable.

Glorious night too 😉

So it goes.

Up and at ’em

Weak as water as a result so contenting self with planning the sorting and cleaning of the Potting Shed, which is, as far as I’m concerned, always the best type of cleaning don’t you think.

Have also started very slowly to explore one of the things I want to build next.  I’ve not got a lot to share about it at the moment and it may well end up in the re-use pile but am planning on a piece of furniture to fit into a 1940s – 50s themed small space.

2 mm card drying out after a home mix of many colours, and slubs of pastel chalks ‘dragged’ in when wet while listening to an episode of Samuel Pepys in this anniversary year of the Great Fire of London

Trying out in painted card.  Thrilling isn’t it?   At this moment in time it has all the potential of being a ‘something’ or is maybe just a good way to spend a few hours on a floppy day.  If it does work then might leave it like that or clad/rebuild with wood veneer possibly?  No, not a good idea perhaps, as still very bad at cutting the wood as exactly as would be needed.

In other ‘news’

One piece of furniture that is coming along is the table for the monster H Hall.  Had a small panic about the new table when realised how much higher it is than the tidgy white ex-under the bunk bed table housing Hogepotche at the moment.  It’s the addition of a set of sturdy castors that’s done it.  Close call, but it will still go through a doorway.

Not too concerned about the patchy look (more obvious whilst it’s still drying) as the whole surface will be covered by house. That is, when we get in a team of strong bodies to help levitate it.
