Forgive me for my brief entries of late, I’ve been a little under the weather. Buried under it in fact – my kids have been digging for days trying to find me and now: woot! Here I am. Still under the weather, but getting closer to the surface.
(Note: please ignore this entire entry. As I’ve pointed out before, medication does strange things to the human mind, never more tangibly expressed than in written outpourings.)
Anyway, the point is, I’ve been pretty well housebound, with which kids in tow, can be more revolting than some of the lipo-suction stunts I’ve heard about in Dirty Sanchez. So…I’ve turned to the wondrous internet to provide me with some homemade Halloween decorations, to keep the kids entertained. I can’t tell you how painful this is – I HATE crafts. Namely cos I have massive fingers and while they come in handy for piano-playing, they’re crapola when it comes to fiddly ‘fine motor skills’ type stuff. But…I was desperate. So I gave it a shot.
To give you an idea of how much I struggle with this, here is what our ‘pipecleaner spiders’ were SUPPOSED to look like:
Pretty cool, huh? This was what our spiders ACTUALLY look like:
Stop laughing. It’s insulting.
Then, of course, there’s our themed wall…(if you look real close you’ll see Caleb’s contribution down the bottom left) and yes, I tried to ‘design’ (translation = hack out of cardboard at random will) the cut-outs myself.
And let’s not even talk about the ghosts…
Ooh yeah. Halloween in our household is going to be terrifying, alright.
