Hi everyone :)
Don’t you just hate it when circumstances conspire against you getting the things you want to do done! I was feeling great this afternoon and all ready to do my blog when suddenly it was time to go to the launderette and then down to the supermarket.. but at last there is time to blog :)
I had a really funny start to my week… Mr Toby decided that he REALLY didn’t want to go outside on Monday morning. I went down to the bedroom to find him and here’s what I found:
You can almost hear him saying… “But I’m asleep Mumma”… notice him looking at me with one eye!
I waited just a moment and here’s what he did:
“See Mumma… I’m REALLY asleep!” There was no fooling this Mumma though because 5 minutes later Toby was outside and I was on my way to work LOL
On Tuesday morning I put my back out quite badly… in fact it was REALLY bad. I did manage to hobble around work all day and then went to the chiropractor… turns out I’d slipped four discs in my lower back and two in my neck… OUCH!
On Wednesday I had the day off work and got a friend to take me out to the Waikite Hot Pools for a relaxing soak. It wasn’t quite as relaxing as I’d hoped but Toby and I did get a lovely photo together.
We had a Duffy assembly at school and my class ended the week making fresh pasta as part of our Italian Food topic we’re doing at the moment.
Speaking of food… my chiropractor made the most delicious chocolate cake and gave me a slice to take home… totally yummy!
On Saturday I decided to go over to see Mum and spend some time with her. We ended up mucking around with resin and moulds and had a wonderful time experimenting… thanks Mum for a really fun day!
Which brings me to my piece of creativity for the week. While Mum and I were experimenting with the resin we discovered some cool techniques for colouring them and I’ve used two of my moulded pieces on this weeks creative piece.
The fairy has been painted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Paint. In real life it looks almost like porcelain and has a lovely soft sheen to it. The clock face has been painted with Charcoal Gesso and then had metallic rub stippled over it.
And now for the insert… on Friday while we were making pasta I had my camera out and between me and the kids we took over 60 photos! I had enough photos to do a ‘step by step’ type of insert.
Next week we’re making pizza dough and I’ll be sure to get some photos of the kids cooking again.
Thanks for visiting my blog… I hope you all have a wonderful week and I’ll catch up with you again soon xxx
