Weather not suitable for working in the shed.
Also strict instructions from the CEO domestic bliss department.
“Not in here until after Christmas” *** ****** Grrrrrrrrrrrrr (Visitor’s coming)!!!

So I thought why not own up to past errors time.

I will kick off with a very early one.
Whilst sitting working on balsa parts for a model, strict instructions from Mum! No cutting on the kitchen table! I was about 12 at the time.
No craft knives only razor blades the type with the safety back or cutting mats in those days . So, moved my chair back, crouched slightly and started using my knee as a handy resting place Yep you guessed it ! Bit too much enthusiasm and I now have an inch long scar on my knee.
  affraid affraid affraid 

This one I‘ll call. Concentration, or lack of !!!!! scratch
Never drink coffee while painting, lost count of the number of times I've tried to clean brushes in my coffee mug. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed
So Guy’s.

Most recently i discovered the art of self inflict pain (besides divorce) never hold a sheet of ply and attempt to cut towards yourself!



Ouchie!
