It's true! I think I may be turning into a Domestic Goddess!
It all started last night ... John was out and got held up ... my students and I needed dinner ... so horror of horrors I had to enter that room ... Oh yes everyone ... that room ... The Kitchen!!!
You may need to sit down at this point and maybe get yourself a cup of sweet tea ... I understand that is very good for shock! It was no culinary delight ... but I managed a perfectly adequate Fish, Chips and Beans! Now to some of you Delia Smith types this may all sound ... a tad ... well ...erm ... simple ... but for me ... she who had never tackled the new Deep Fat Fryer before ... it was quite an ordeal. Of course when I say new ... it is actually several years old ... but it was new to me! Actually ... Luckily the Fish had oven baking times on the packet ... and if I am honest ... I followed the frying time for the chips too :0)
Well ... on top of all that ... see those charms on this here beer mat ... well ... I sewed them on!!! Oh yes ... Is 45 classed as mid-life??? ... perhaps I am having a crisis!!! A mid-life domestic kind of one!
Anyways ... it has been a while since I altered a Beer Mat ... and even longer since I entered a challenge ... so here you are! Over at the Lots To Do Challenge this week the theme is shapes and I thought I would join in with a shield shaped beer mat!
I covered the mat with Lord Tim of Holtz's tissue tape ... LOVE that stuff ... you know Tim ... the man that can eject himself from a jet aircraft while playing Amazing Grace on the Harmonica and crafting a grunge rose with just an inch long piece of tissue tape and a pokey tool.
If you guys like a challenge ... don't forget to check out the totally new Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge ... the DT is being chosen as we speak and the challenges are due to begin on Monday the 2nd of August!
I must away ... not only am I cooking and sewing ... today I am being nurse maid too ... NO! ... it's not Food Poisoning ... but that's a whole other story!
