The dentists was ok, no fillings again. I suppose I'm very lucky to get to my advanced age and have no fillings at all....my dentist says that my teeth are absolutely fine, it's just a pity I have gum disease! At least I don't have to go again for several months.
I'm very tired, I keep waking up around 03.30 - 04.00 and find it impossible to get back to sleep. Since reading (well, I've read half of it) that Sleep book, I no longer worry about not sleeping, I don't lie there fretting about it and actively trying to get back to sleep. I just lie quietly for a while, letting my thoughts drift along, then get up after about half an hour - no point in just lying there if I can't sleep, I'd rather be up. Consequently, though, I'm shattered now - even after a lifetime of being used to insomnia, I still need sleep. It gets to the point where it's an effort to drag myself through the day, then I get a couple of reasonable nights of sleep, simply because my body is just so exhausted.
I think I'll spend the day in the kitchen doing some batch cooking of meals to freeze, then have a weekend of doing nothing much. Other than going shopping Sunday morning, we've got nothing planned. I dare say husband will be out in the garden preparing more beds for seeds and plants, I'll get on with some more card making I think. It's quite addictive!
The second card I made yesterday was going ok, I was trying out some stamping designs. Then a bit of a disaster - the stamp I was using stuck to the ink pad and in pulling it off I accidentally flipped the pad over....on top of the card, so ink splattered on it - not a lot, but enough to ruin the card. Duh! Oh well, these things happen, I'm bound to have the odd disaster. I did briefly wonder whether I could make a feature out of the splatters, or cover them up, but not really an option. Think I need to buy a rubber and some correction fluid/stuff. Some blotting paper would be useful too, I reckon. Anyway, despite one ruined card, I'm really enjoying my new hobby and learning as I go along.
I completed 2 cards successfully, but forgot to photograph them before posting them.
I now have 2 shoe boxes of card making stuff, along with the pretty floral box my sister gave me. A couple of you, Sue and Eleanor, mentioned I might need a whole room for my supplies....we do have 2 spare bedrooms, but I doubt husband would be very happy at me taking over one of them! He thinks my 8-drawer Ikea unit full of yarn on the landing is more than enough stuff!
