I've had guests at home all last weekend and had a friend round to help with the left overs during the week. Time has flown by in a haze of steam from the dishwasher as I loaded and unloaded the machine that has worked valiantly overtime without complaint.
Hubby's old back injury has played him up which meant I am chief cook and bottle washer - sometimes it is good to touch down and realise just how much he does around the house, allowing me to flit from bead to bead like a demented butterfly. I hope he'll be better next week and I can get back to my usual routine. He's getting a load of TLC from your's truly, and I can tell you that it is quite draining - I am beginning to get 'compassion fatigue', in common with a lot of medics who have to deal with illness in the home after a day of being compassionate at work.
I persuaded her to take a look at the earrings in person before she dismissed them outright. I can just as easily make another pair - a little silver flower frame in wire with jade beads stitched onto it will be an hours work if she hates these, but of course, I'm banking on her falling in love with them!
I am sorely tempted to make another pair - the flowers I talked about earlier and send them out instead but perhaps she will try these on and fall in love with them! Perhaps, deep down I'm hoping for a Capriliciousification and to have a new convert to the cause - who knows what's in my subconscious? Where is Freud when you need him??
What do you think folks? Do leave me your thoughts and I will follow your advice. My friend has gone on holiday so I have a couple of days to sort this out.
P.S. please, please leave me a comment about the soutache earrings and what I should do with my little dilemma, thanks, N xx
