I've hurt my wrist more and it's very ouchy so I'm feeling sorry for myself again because i can't craft, I can't type (except with one finger) so I will only be leaving short messages where I can on your blogs -your comments pages will be slightly saner for a while at least, and i have to use the mouse with my left hand which is all wrong!
And as for the housework.....................that's what has got me in this mess in the first place!
I decided that my wrist was hurting because the keyboard and mouse tray on our mahoosive computer cupboard had broken off so you had to use the mouse at a funny angle putting strain on my wrist.
Cue my bright idea to get a cheap new computer table with functioning shelf.
Not such a bad idea I hear you say.
Ah, maybe not if it hadn't meant completely rearranging the dining room furniture including three huge bookcases (and their contents) and the mahoosive computer cupboard with all my craft stuff in!
Now I did delegate do it was a full Team Locket experience. And I even gave everyone special job titles with badges and responsibilities:
Naturally I was the SUPERVISOR (but I didn't just stand around watching everyone and actually did most of the shifting and carrying myself - hence the wrist problem)
Mr Locket was the DOGSBODY which mostly involved going to Argos to buy the new computer table, then build it and generally do loads of stuff - particularly rescuing me whenever I got myself stuck in the middle of moving some large piece of furniture!
Dorothy was the CATERING MANAGER and made lunch - cheese and tomato spirals (yum), double chocolate muffins (double yum) and salad nicoise for supper as well as providing the rest of us with drinks and going to the local shop for various cooking ingredients.
Daisy was the CLEANING AND SORTING ENGINEER because she absolutely loves dusting and washing things and organising where they should be.
And Fred was the RELOCATION OFFICER because I told him he had the muscles in the family and was the best one to help move all the books and boxes of craft stuff around!
Everyone worked really hard and the room looks loads better - except for my poor sewing table (which I had completely cleared last week) - everything that didn't have an obvious place to go was just dumped on top :( It's going to take ages to sort again but not today because today ?I'm resting my poorly little arm!!!
Flip it took a long time to type all that with one finger! I only meant to do a short post to explain why I wasn't going to be posting for a bit - I think I went wrong somewhere!!!
The next post will be about some of the lovely things that have been arriving through my letter box lately.
But as this has been a photo-free post so far I thought I would leave you with this view of Fred that I spotted in the background of a photo of Dot
it says a lot about that boy!
