I had written it in my important diary and I had organised something else to do when I was out so that I would at least leave the house. It was also forecast to be the coolest day in weeks.
All I can say in my pitiful defence is that it was hot, my back ached and I will do it on Monday ……really.
Back home I worked on my new big portrait for most of today. Sometimes with confidence and sometimes with trepidation. I liked it, then I thought it was boring. Off and on all day.
At the end of the day I was a little disappointed.
However I had a look back at the sketch I had made originally and noticed that the background was dark . Rushed through into my workroom and to my surprise a dark background changed everything. I think I will give the artist in the painting a black beret.
Round about that time I opened the door and realised that one of the cats might have been marking its territory and my net curtain was smelling a bit off.
So have removed the smelly curtain and tacked up another one. Don’t know how I can stop it happening again.
I’m glad it is wine time now. Might sit outside later tonight when it’s dark. It is the weekend after all.
