Actually, it probably was weeks ago!
I always underestimate how long it takes to make things – and how much life seems to get in the way in between.
For instance, yesterday was an inset day at lad’s school. This necessitated me either a) being a good mum and providing some entertainment, interaction and activity for lad, or b) doing my own stuff and leaving him to fester in front of telly / computer / ipod for most of the day.
I plumped for the former. Because not only do I like to think that am I a good mum, but I also enjoy lad’s company.
And I figure that in a few short years he probably won’t want to be seen dead with me, so I should make the most of him while I can.
Anyway, as I had hinted yesterday, I did manage to finish most of my new batch of pendants this week.
Because I stupidly didn’t resist the urge that should be resisted at all costs. Namely, the urge to prod at things that have been glued before they have had a chance to set properly.
Consequently I find myself having to re-glue half a dozen owls, instead of showing them off here and listing them in my shop whilst lad and his dad are out on their bike ride this afternoon.
Ah, well. Worse things happen at sea.
And lad, at least, thinks well of me – as evidenced by the abundant hugs I got yesterday.
And that, to me at least, definitely indicates a job well done. ♥
