I wasn’t intending to blog today, but seeing as the internet has gone off yet again, I shall see what I can come up with to write.
The day has only really just started – I am expecting a visit from the Health Visitor so they can check up on how Marcus is doing; which in my humble opinion is pretty well. He’s putting weight on rather well and we’ve both now had the ‘all clear’ from the Dr. He gets his vaccinations next week so we can go out and do some fun things after that like going swimming. I’m not too confident about going before he has had his shots, so that’s something to discuss with the health visitor today. Also I’m not really sure how swimming with a newborn works, I’m pretty certain they can’t go swimming in their nappies, but no body wants baby poop in the pool.
I’m also expecting the Mother in Law over today, which will be a laugh I’m sure.
But with all these visits and things going on, it’s left very little time to actually get anything done… or has it?
I was woken up at about 7am this morning, and if anyone knows me they know that’s actually early for me. What can I say, I like my sleep! Some people like food, I like sleep, it’s a pretty wicked vice when it comes to wanting to get things done. But rather than roll over and go back to sleep, I figured I could do something with this additional hour or so. So after doing all those Mummy things that I needed to finish; clean bottles, change and dress Marcus and so on, I took all my artsy materials back down stairs and started some new canvases.
They are a bit wet still, but you get the idea.
One of them I absolutely hate, but it was a bit of an experiment that failed. I had something already painted on the canvas (That I already hated) and tried painting over it using a similar technique to all the others. To be honest, I don’t think the colour palette I used helped matters all that much, but there we are.
The other three are currently looking pretty good. Although they are all still rather wet, so I’ll have to wait until they are all dry to really pass judgement on them.
