Not Quite To Plan!
I explained yesterday that I was going to have a well deserved lie in today in order to ensure that my floor paint has dried properly. Well, I was so tired that I was in bed asleep by 9pm. The history of my usual insomnia is well documented but last night I just about managed to get through Nigel Slaters 'Simple Suppers' before passing out. I'm definitely going to make the orange jelly though.
Now I guess you're all wondering what disaster could have befallen me this morning. It is not a gallery related disaster but it does explain why I'm writing this and I'm not down at the gallery yet.
I was doing my 'choredom' (chores that are boring) and I just happened to look out the kitchen window to notice that my fishpond looked odd. It had just started to rain very heavily and I was still in my pyjamas. I ran barefoot up the garden to see that by some cruel twist of fate my pond was half empty. I fear that it might have developed a leak. But I am now waiting for it to fill back up. Not with rain! Before you all stare incredulously at the screen, the hose is in there.
I'm going to go down to the gallery in a bit and move all the stuff that I moved out from the studio into the gallery, back into the studio. Choredom at home and at work, my days are too fun packed for my own good!
