It would appear I have a bit of a case of the pretties
which is very odd because I'm not really a pretty girly girl at all
and have never really bought anything flowery before
but as I rapidly approach 45
I am finding I am drawn to some pretty things more and more
this has become a concern because now I am starting to worry
that I am going to end up all out chintz by the time I am 60
talk about shudder inducing...
but rather than panic just yet, I think I will blame the weather
because Spring has sprung
well not fully sprung, its more in a half crouch
but the studio is being flooded with lovely scents
and that sweetness must be affecting my brain chemistry or something...
I am therefore blaming my purchase of this Cath Kidston Hand Cream
on a combination of the glorious weather
and the endorphins left over from my second favourite day on the cleaning calender
that is known as
bash the living crap out of the duvets and pillows day
I do it twice a year and it is my sort of cleaning...
give me a five iron and a pillow and I am in heaven
I make all the appropriate beating up and karate noises
which may raise some eyebrows with the neighbours
but the fun overrides any sense of propriety and I highly recommend
that you throw in a few ka pows and take that you scoundrels
next time you are doing this chore
you will be smiling the rest of the day
Of course there is a downside
and it is obviously that you will go and buy hand cream in a pretty floral container
because while the packaging is all lovely and it smells pretty
it has a screw on lid
which is hand cream torture for someone with my coordination
and I will now spend the next few months hunting for the lid
which will roll under furniture and go missing every single time I try to use it
I swore I would never venture down the screw top hand cream road again
but I have never been great at keeping up things I swear to
and it was fun to paint so maybe it will be worth
all the cursing and crawling around lid hunting that is to come..
Happy Paint Party Friday everyone... xx
This week I have blogged about...
