Drugs, Regrowth and Creativeness

The bathroom is finished at last. The only things I need to do now are to varnish the boxing-in that hides all the pipes and to put my new towels in. I have bought the new towels but I am resisting using them until I get a second set. All the towels I have at the moment were ruined when we had the building work done. Everything was so filthy that they got stained with the constant hand washing. Anyway, here's a peek of the bath wall with a new art thing. It's a wall plaque that was plain black and I painted it to match everything:



Here's some more creativeness. We did this in craft class this week and I can't for the life of me figure out why?!!!



It's called napkin decor. You basically cut out a pretty picture from a paper napkin and then glue it on a candle or soap. Obviously there's more to it than that what with all the special stuff you have to paint on the candle first, but....well...I don't really get it. Once you've done it you're not supposed to burn the candles, they're for decoration only. Our teacher, bless her, loves it and has these things all over her house! Hmmmm. Still, I enjoyed doing it though and the companionship of the class is lovely. :0)

Billy Bonsai is clawing his way back from the brink of death. Look at him now:



He has green shoots coming out from everywhere.

Thought you might be interested to see how many tablets I take daily. At the moment I'm up to 40 a day! I used to be someone who didn't like to take paracetamol for a headache. Sigh.

I'm going shopping with Emily this afternoon to try and get her some jewellery for her prom. Her red dress is in the shop getting taken up to a short length and she's now after white chunky plastic jewellery. Her shoes are white with red hearts and red bows at the back. She's hired a black Hummer limousine like this: http://tinyurl.com/6pr7at for her and all her friends. How cool is that?

Crikey!! Even though I know you take loads of tablets, seeing them like that really brings it home just how many you do take! I hope they are taken after food, or they would surely fill you up beforehand:0)
That Hummer looks fantastic! I bet the girls are so excited. Not long now!

You do so many posts each time I can't remember what I have to comment on Ha ha ha!

The bathroom looks lovely!

The candle thingy's you can give to someone as a pressie - Not me though ha ha!

Glad the bonz is doing well ;O)

Tablets! What can I say? You must need a lay down after taking that lot - all the head bobbing ;O)

It's a shame that someone can't sneak in the car to take video of them all :O)

Your bathroom artwork looks great (as usual) and I like what I can see of the tiles. The candle things are pretty, but I agree with you utterly useless if you can't light the light! I bet Tina would like them though! I can't believe all those tablets. It must take ages to swallow them all! I take ten a day, and I thought that was bad !!!!!
When is the Prom, I bet Emily is getting so excited about it all. What a pity it wasn't around in yours and Lynne's time. Still maybe just as well! I hope she's having official Prom photos done so that we can all steal copies.

Love the bathroom Poo, and your art is cool. I want more seeable photos please ;O)

Leeta is right, I like the soap and candles! I think they would look lovely in a Spanish house! I bags your cos I like feathers. I saw your Mums as well and I fell in love with them too.

Can't even get to grips with what it must be like having to take so many tablets. How often per day do you have to take them? Is it shared out three times a day or do you have to constantly be taken two or three of any one kind throughout the day?

Pooe you :O(

You must look like a slow motion headbanger taking all those tablets. Hope you are feeling better.

Yah, Billy! Grow Billy, Grow Billy........

Those little tiles are soooo cute.

Hugs, Sarah x

The prom is 24th June and I shall definitely be videoing and taking photos in a most intrusive and embarassing way when Em has her prom. She will be very glad of it after the event. :0)

Sometimes I have less tablets, sometimes more. It depends on what dosage I am on at the time. I take them three times a day.

I can't really take photos in the bathroom as it's so tiny. No room to swing my Chicken, if you know what I mean!

Croom said...

Looking forward to the photos, take one of her feet as well please!!

It's a funny thing Poo, I always swing a cat in my bathroom, didn't know you kept chickens ;O)
