a funny story to be told.

Hi All

I had a quiet few days,was not able to do much, this was due to my prescription being mucked up, I have my medication every month and usually  all I have to do is collect it and have been doing this for a very long time, this month, guess what? go to collect and they do not know what I am talking about!!! everyone was blaming each other, this was no help to me, so it meant I had to wait 2 days before I could get it sorted, why does it always happen at a weekend. 

This meant my body reacted to the lack of medication and I just had to sit and wait, I was able to take my standby meds, but they do make me very sleepy and a bit spaced out. I was so glad when Monday came and I could get it all sorted, then it was a couple of days to get my body back to normal, well as normal as it can be. 

I did manage yesterday to finish off some more of the accessories that I was making,
I so much want to get on with painting the shop, but my work room is to small for me to do it in there, I really want a nice day where I can do it outside, frustrating, I may have to just do a couple of bits at a time, will have to think about it.

Here is a funny tale for you, years ago, in my wild days, my cousins husband painted me, wait for it---------NUDE, yes I mean naked and proud, I wanted to look back when I was a lot older and say yes I once looked good,  when my marriage ended, I gave my picture to  my mum to look after it for me till I got my new home and had some where to display it, so I go to collect it and my mum said she had done something to it, now I thought,maybe new frame, NO NO!! guess what she had done? she had a dress painted over my body, yes a bloody dress, she did not like to see it, as it was in  her loft, I could not understand why. various people have tried to remove my dress,  I do mean from my painting,  but not had much luck, its oil on oil, I could take it to a proper restorer but it is expensive, so for now, it hangs on my bedroom wall, just waiting for me to reveal me again.

I was so upset about it, I will never look like that again, my mum just thought it looked better.

Well I had better show you my pictures 

me and my dress.

Well at least it was not a long granny dress. ;-)

I feel very bad for you but I can't help Laughing!!! Your mum was probably feeling self-conscious about the painting and no doubt never expected you to reclaim it. But the dress still allows for the outline of your perfect figure to shine. Your poor mum, but it is a Very Funny story! :D
