Just a quickie for today, folks. After a junk journal phase, today the shrining bug bit again. Not least because I want something else to post than Fan Challenge questions or Covid updates. So much more uplifting to have something pretty to look at.
Wanna see something not-pretty?
Two down. I want to make more, though. The whole crafty-crafty thing is keeping me happy, healthy and sane because there is no work coming in at the mo. I am grateful that I have been granted the emergency unemployment benefit which our government has created for the duration of the lockdown. Even though I have restocked my Etsy shop, the pandemic restrictions also mean that less people are comfortable buying something online. Or have less disposable income, like myself. A common problem for all artists and crafters at this time, I reckon.
The highlight of today (apart from crafting) was our evening meal. The end of 40 days Lent had to be celebrated with a takeaway order of fish and chips. It was a bright and sunny, if a little chilly day here in Dublin, and with the sun still shining, we climbed the roof again. On summer days we often buy fish and chips and then drive to our favourite spot in Dublin Bay to eat our meal al fresco. Up on the roof is the next best thing.
It was slightly eerie, being watched by a number of gulls on reconnaissance for food… I wonder how the birds are doing. There is noticeably less rubbish on the streets, and with all the restaurants and pubs closed, I reckon a large part of the gulls’ regular hunting grounds have vanished…
Right. That’s it. I wanna get back to that shrine. Have a good night, lads, and stay safe!
