Dear Andrew says his hangover is much better.
Next year I'm making this awesome reindeer for my pleasure and to terrify the cat.
Only StarWars fans will get the joke. And no, I haven't been to see the next instalment yet.
And I thought I'd give you a break from Harry.
Mother had a turn in the shower and was rushed back to bed and put on oxygen. Now she's back on antibiotics. She was okay Christmas Day but tired. Her roomie died through the night, just went to sleep and bye bye. Boxing Day, tired, so mother stayed in bed. I was in the middle of dressing an angel doll, just getting into the sewing of petticoats and lace which had to be done on the doll otherwise the porcelain arms can break when I got the call. You know, oh don't come down, I'll be okay but she isn't until I walk in the room. Bloody woman. Doc Marvin was in today and can't believe how fast her lungs collapsed into infection because they were clear last week.
I have a few people to blame. Don't come into a nursing home and slobber over the residents, their immune system is shit and your germs aren't. My sister and I don't kiss our mother, well if I kissed her she would think she was dying. I've been saying this for 7 years, don't kiss them, you've had years to kiss them and if you haven't kissed them enough in that time then you aren't going to make up for it now.
So now I'm back with Angel doll and it is not working. Angel wings are different from fairy wings, fairy wings I can do, stupid angels, no. To top it off, it's one of those CopperArt dolls from China where the dress is made for a standing up body but then they go and twist the body to make it look different from the other 4 million Angels they made that week. I went into the sewing room and packed fabric in boxes and let the empty brain space do its work and I've got it and remembered how to stiffen the wings, hairspray. I even found the white feathers I'd been looking for. Hand beading is now going to be sticking on with glue beading. I've cleaned up the beads and can't find a crystal or a pearl anywhere. I'll go feed the cat and think on it. Bloody woman couldn't wait until I'd finished to have another episode.
