I am well aware that only the WOYWW crew are likely to know what I am on about ... so I will set the scene. A few months back after waiting for an entire three hours for John to put a wood plinth up in my craft room I took matters into my own hands. I hung my up-cycled beer mats on my craft room wall with pins. Now the pins are not straight ... nor are they similar widths apart ... but the job was completed in five minutes and I was happy!
Now John is an aircraft engineer ... he likes straight lines and jobs that get finished to a high standard ... he was NOT going to like my prettied up wall ... trust me! Anyways ... I shared my secret on my blog (he never reads it) and managed ... successfully ... I might add to keep John out of my craft room for the last eight weeks or so! I am on the third floor and on the couple of occasions I have heard him venture up the stairs I have successfully managed to tiptoe rapidly across the room and start walking downstairs in the opposite direction ... at which point he always turned around with me.
Now I have the attic room ... which has low ceilings and a flush light fitting. The light fitting is a circular thing with like a halo wotsit around it ... and it is a nightmare when changing a bulb. Well the bulb only went and blew late Tuesday night ... I bought a new bulb on Wednesday and smuggled it past John ... bless ... he is a helpful soul and would have offered to do the job for me ... which I clearly could n't allow for afore mentioned reasons. Well after struggling for about 20 minutes ... I gave up ... called John and decided to face the music. I waited with baited breath for the teeth sucking and the huffing ... but do you know ... his vein did n't even pulse in the side of his head ... no sign of anxious beads of sweat or nothing ... just ... well ... silence. Now I know he saw the pins ... their unevenness and the thirty something of them in the plasterboard wall ... that he will have to fill in the future ... but nothing ... nada .... zilch! Here we are entering into the weekend ... and still no word ... very strange ... so there you have it ... Pingate ... all's well that ends well!
I have just blogged the card for Creativity Boutique ... and I am now off to up-cycle more beer mats ... well ... in for a penny ... in for a pound :0)
Have a good weekend y'all.
