There is a lot of assembling to do in my creative space. Lots of flat packs, various sized screws and bits of dowel. And of course there is an allen key too – what flat pack construction would be without it?
I am assembling furniture for my children’s new play room, formerly known as the dining room. My mission is to create a space that is so enchanting and conducive to play that my children feel inclined to perhaps remove themselves from within a one metre radius of me – not forever – but just long enough to go have a shower via a stop over at the toilet.
I like to fancy myself a bit of an Ikea assembly guru. I’m good at it! My secret – my total disdain for reading instructions. (touch wood – or whatever this stuff is called!) It is a good thing too that I won’t be straining my eyes too much today reading the fine print.
My eyes have been like this for two whole days now! I’ve managed to contract a case of conjunctivitis. Yuck! The children are both fine – no sign of it – so how I managed to get it is beyond me. It really hurts and is making me feel quite irritable. In terms of health the month of August was rather blah for me, a UTI that needed two courses of antibiotics to get rid of (which is something considering I hadn’t taken antibiotics for about five years), constant sore throats and ear ache, and then a vomitty-gastro bug. I thought I was out of the woods and ready to leave the winter blues behind me and then on the first day of spring I wake up and can’t open my eyes because they were ‘glued’ together! Urk!
Enough of my whinging. It is time for you to leave clear eyed and bushy tailed off to see all the creativity that abounds at Kirsty’s place.
