It is Day 27 of Art Every Day Month and I must admit I am sort of faltering a bit
not so much in artistic output
and faltering in the domestic sphere is a given so it isn't coming into play here
it is more likely due to this being the busiest time of the school year
we are finally and gloriously in the last week before the long Summer break starts
which means that this week is a mad rush
doing all the things I should have done over the last six weeks
so I am cramming in things like visits to the uniform shop
for senior hat band and jersey
senior... how did that happen... bloody hell I can't be that old can I ?????
cleaning school hats before the nightmare mould season that is our summer
and from experience I have learned that this is one you cannot skip
if it isn't spotless before the start of the rainy season
then it is like a freaky furry ferret on the hat stand come late January
washing and storing the 5 squillion uniform bits and pieces
which will still manage to magically get grubby and lost over the holidays
finding a place to store all the books and crap from the school locker
and we are talking a serious mound of stuff here
trying to cram in a few quick visits with some friends while we are still childless
and can chat in peace and not have to share our yummy treats with grubby hands
and last but not least considering doing some Christmas shopping for Phantom
though I am tempted to find a couple of lumps of coal and be done with it
she may whine that she has been good and doesn't deserve coal
but I am thinking there would be lots of naughty things I don't know about
so it would probably be justified...
Of course there is a excellent chance that most of it will go undone
and I will just retreat to the studio and drink tea from this favourite cup
and get busy on drawing and painting up the vase of artichokes I have on my desk
they are just crying out to be painted
and it isn't nice to ignore such lovely specimens...
so fingers crossed the painting goes quickly so I can sneak in a job or two
or not... xx
