Unlucky For Some
Yesterday I stayed in to start the collaged assembling project that I had promised some friends. It's called Issue 13 so was looking for scraps with a superstitious angle - ladders, magpies, four leaf clovers, that kind of thing. Needless to say I was unlucky in not finding any!
I did make a start though and have the bare bones of the pages worked out and some initial layers glued down.
Archie was part of the group interview the local tory MP at the school yesterday. He had his photo taken again for the local paper. Thats 4 weeks in a row now almost! Last week we were on the front page in the last audience of the Regal , but you can just about make out our faces - about five pixels each! I meant to ask about an enlargement at the papers offices today but completely forgot. It would be a nice souvenir to have.
Today is the 13th so more bad luck in the shape of a headache thats lasted all day. I went to town this morning for a walk but didn't find much. The Guardian with DVD of "Gilbert Grape" with Johnny Depp in it and some postage stamps I bought at Woolworths.
Hazel and Archie have been in the garden - burning the Xmas tree branches and making lots of smoke. They have saved the stump/stalk with all the others. We have a fine collection of old xmas tree stumps now - all lined up in a row!
Now I'm going to make a veg. curry as we have enough yoghurt and dug out some Bombay Potatoes and Nan bread from the freezer.
It's windy again and the trees are thrashing about outside in the garden like things possessed!
