I’ve been hearing that there is a paper shortage. I supposed that might mean watercolour paper could get more expensive.
I think it’s actually labels there is a shortage of, due to a strike in Finland. ( I may have that completely wrong. )
However it was 3am and for the 5th night in a row I kept waking up and wasn’t able to get back to sleep.
I was thinking about my hair and how flat and boring it looks. I used to have thick bouncy hair , but not now.
And if mask wearing is going to only be in shops then it will matter ( to me) more what I look like.
After months of hiding behind a hat,dark glasses , black mask and scarf it has felt like I am visible again.
I cut my hair last week thinking that if it was shorter it would get its bounce back. Nope!
( Am having problems with lipstick too, but that’s another story.)
So I thought that I would try curling tongs , if they still made them , and see if I could have something other than droopy pancake hair.
Having found the cheapest pair then it was only sensible to add something else for about €12 so that I would get free postage.
After discounting all the watercolour paper that might possibly be sent from the UK,( tax ,thanks to brexit!) I found an Italian pad which also includes 2 small paintbrushes and a pencil.
By then I was convinced that I was not only making sure that I would have a good supply of watercolour paper ,but also with nice bouncy hair my confidence would return and I would rejoin society. ( It was 3am when I was thinking all this……)
Today it was such a nice morning that I thought I may as well do some washing.
I took several photos on my way to get a lift to the market where I was hoping to buy pansies.
There was only one pot of white pansies. I want lots of colours.
It was so warm when I got home( 19C) that I weeded all my flowerpots and now there are lots of pansy spaces.
I was going to paint this afternoon, but have put it off until early tomorrow morning.
So now it’s wine time again.
