    WARNING. If eating breakfast it might be better to read no further.

    The nurse had to give up yesterday when her efforts started to make the wound bleed. I think it was quite hard to stitch it in A&E because the edges were so jagged and there was so much blood still coming out.

    I really do hope you are right. Mr K said that I needn't have gone to A&E as he could have used Gorilla glue on it

    I like the more controlled sploshing. The sun catching the foreground pushes the dark blues off into the distance. I feel the distance is in a rain storm, blurred and I distinct as such weather makes shapes dissolve. Interesting to see where your next painting takes you. You could keep controlling the sploshing until you turn out a painting in Preraphalite Style. :)

    Socking it to us as usual @dunelm :) do they come in pairs?

    Your birds are getting better and better, some great brushwork in these two ideas, superb and very enjoyable paintings.

    Hug for the sticky stitches, I had some glue on stiches in my hand a few years ago, all worked out fine with time.

    Good Morning and 6.5 for me today, no reason as I can see so I will just roll along with Dracula take on BG.

    Great long Dusty Cycle ride yesterday. The heathland was unusually silent, that heavy stillness that is seldom felt in these busy times, I sat for an hour at the spot I want me ashes scattered after I leave this mortal coil, just soaking up the view and atmosphere, magical.

    On arriving home I found a huge bench plonked on my drive. Our son had welded it together out of used horseshoes. Unexpected and a surprise and so the rest of my day consisted of wire brushing the dirt out of the grooves, it was like concrete, then giving it a coat of paint, needs another later today.
    Here it is before and after.....

    Keep safe be amazing.

    Just checking it really is Wednesday - yep, no 5 grandchild is here so it must be. Doesn't Paddington know marmalade is vey, vey high carb?:arghh: My fbg could well have been the 4.8 (snap @karen8967 ) Swipey intimated. Slew of data not where I want but this management by lc is merely an aspiration like levelling up and securing borders. Spiffing Finnish knitwear @dunelm; amazing bench @Muddy Cyclist - must have been heavy to shift. What an amazing present though. Nice humour around the stitches @Krystyna23040 - like Mr K's snippet. Have a great and safe day peeps - pups burst their stockade overnight. Result looked much like I imagine England in about 10 years time;)

    Did it take very long for the glue to go?

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who are not sure about today, but at least it is national bin day :)

    This morning on that meter of mystery a 7.3 and no idea where that came from, one of life's puzzles.

    I have two things planned for today, all mundane washing the car and motorcycle. Oh and a third plinky plonky practice.
    What an exciting life......
    Now me and me's must go and bark at the postman.

    Remember the stays, stay safe, stay well, stay apart and finally stay away from the depressing media.

    I love your indoor socks !
    And the cranes. They are wonderful @dunelm

    I do believe it is Wednesday and not Tuesday, unless you have bought shares in the Tardis...

    If it is Tuesday, then I have problems today...

    Take care.

    Throw a dice in the lottery of what day of the week it is...oh dear, there is not a seventh side...so have we lost Sunday (or is that Saturday?).

    I have definitely gone doolally...join me in doolallyland?

    Ah, don't worry @Krystyna23040 I have a steel stomach...
    So...

    It is a pity it is not nearer Halloween, because you wouldn't have needed a costume.
    There were some delightful emojies on this subject, but I decided not to scare the children...

    Fbg from doolallyland 6.5

    One of those days yesterday that drove me up the wall and beyond...

    And I got no sleep...
    I have to sleep almost upright propped up with pillows because of breathing and swallowing problems.
    So, last night the cat (Popeye) decided to sleep on the top of my head (I didn't feel him get on the top of my head, I opened my eyes to a 5 armed furry octopus dangling down the sides of my face), his 4 legs and tail dangling down the sides of my face. He was totally chilled out and relaxed, and thus I had a fur hat all night...I didn't get back to sleep after that...
    I couldn't get that fur hat off this morning. It was like it had glued itself to my hair. I think he must have been combing it with his claws. I finally extracted myself. Whereupon the said fur hat head-butted me because I was trying to paint this dandelion in Procreate, on my iPad. Naughty me had forgotten no iPads in his Lordship's presence.

    The fur hat has been exiled to the potting shed...

    And here is my digital dandelion...

    And I am going to sleep.....

    Even the Repair Shop has to give up at times.
    There was a grotty dog that someone had glued together very badly with what looked to be epoxy resin, they had to give up trying to get it apart! So they just filled the holes, rubbed down and sprayed over.
    I doubt whether that method would be used by medics!

    Oh what a superb surprise you might have to weld cushions on after the second paint coat.

    Thank you @gennepher I am enjoying all things cranes at present. I was definitely Tuesday when I got up but it quickly turned to Wednesday when I opened the front door and saw the bins lined up for the bin lorry cavalcade.
