working title: the one with the hospital.
unfortunately, it looked like that on saturday, sunday, monday and tuesday also.
dad took ill on friday night, so saturday was all about derbyshire’s finest emergency hospitals and pharmacies. and sunday was spent, gathered round his leg, watching infection receed from scribbly biro lines.
and between packaging and posting them all, we did manage a pleasant family outing to the doctors (as well as a trip to the pub for lunch).
so yesterday, under instruction, i took up the cupboard-building reins.
(actually, i had to pretty much wrench them from dad’s hands. he doesn’t do “invalid” very well. and i see who i inherited my control freak gene from…)
it was all going ok until the massive thunderstorm and torrential rain this morning.
(oh, but this is nothing…
…this is after it’d eased off, after i’d
1. rescued the power tools (who’d be dumb enough to work outdoors in late june?)
2. adjusted the guttering so it’d cope (a bit)
3. rescued my lilipopo lavender keyrings (again) after an(other) indoor lake
woodfillering and painting aside, my awesome bespoke fabric cupboard is almost ready.
goodbye 2364623746 ikea boxes of Stuff :)
hello ocd-ordered shelves full of well pressed fabric organised by colour and subdivided into weight :D
so i can have space and/or both of my sewing machines set up on the (other) table.
i’m now all set up to be super amazing productive multi-tasking creator & sew-er of many things at once…
…if only i hadn’t buggered up both my stupid rsi wrists on all that drilling and screwdrivering >:(
