Hiding From Failure8:10 pm
There just are not enough hours in the day, I knew that when I signed up for the sketchbook project,and with only five days to go before the postal deadline,and a packed week ahead of me,and a very empty sketchbook, it's not looking good.
Maybe there will be a miracle, maybe Ernest will start taking hour long naps during the day,maybe he'll finally decide my nipple does not taste of sour lemon,and will breastfeed so that I don't have to pump seven times a day, maybe the laundry will sort,wash,dry and iron itself, and maybe my children will stop leaving dirty socks, sweet wrappers,toast crusts,empty cups all around the house.....but that's all just excuses, If I really wanted to get the project completed on time,I'd have done it,and I haven't,so big fat FAIL to me.
Just to try and console myself, I haven't been totally unproductive this weekend. I've updated and uploaded some fabric designs to Spoonflower, including this new colourway of my Buddies design, and some Flossies Garden designs.
I've also tried playing with my camera, and finally been brave enough to switch off "auto", I'm pretty happy with the results.
Oh, and I've had a house full of giggly girls over for Eden's 12th birthday, and been out for lunch with my family, that's more important than a sketchbook project isn't it?
