What is this 'organised' of which you speak?

Carol - *plonks bum next to Blog and sighs*
Blog - *looks at Carol* 'What's wrong with your face?'
Carol - 'I'm frustrated'
Blog - 'Why?'
Carol - 'Cause I'm an eejit!'
Blog - 'What have you done?'
Carol - 'I was all set to start gilding my HUGE canvas...I had my drawing table flat, I had the canvas on it, I had my brushes ready for the size and then I went to get my gold leaf.' *sighs* 'Turns out that I don't have anywhere near enough to cover the canvas that I'm working on'
Blog - 'I thought you were being all organised now?'
Carol - 'I am! I have leaf. I just didn't think to check whether I had enough of it'
Blog - 'Well, can't you just start with what you have?'
Carol - 'Not really. The stuff I have at the moment is from a different supplier and I'm not sure the gold will match. I don't want to risk it' 
Blog - 'I didn't know you could get different golds'
Carol - 'Yup. There is red gold, orange gold, standard gold and yellow gold. I think the one I have is standard but because I sourced it in Thailand I'm not 100% sure'
Blog - 'Ah. Have you ordered more now?'
Carol - 'Yeah. 500 leaves of standard gold and a large pot of size just in case! But the frustrating thing is that I'm now going to have to wait a couple of days for it to arrive and then, because I have to let the size cure for three days before I can varnish it, it's probably going to be next week before I can get going on the painting'
Blog - 'And you have a deadline'
Carol - 'And I have a deadline' *sighs*

Post a Comment

Carol is quite happy talking to herself but I think it does her good to have an ACTUAL conversation once and a while! So if you would like to leave a comment that would be incredibly nice of you...think of it as a public service ;-)
