Not so long between posts this time!
I wanted to do more yesterday but I was having a right royal time uploading pictures to Flickr. I gave up trying to upload with Blogger, as it always seems to take all day and then finally fails. So now you're getting pictures linked to my Flickr page, which is probably better! I do have to tweak the size of the photos a bit, but that's OK.
I did these flowers yesterday, from the pattern on The Flower Bed, although I am still a little uncertain as to whether I got it right...
...anyway, they're bright and cheerful and I think I'm going to back the centres with card and put each one on a stick (maybe I should do that in pairs, so they have two faces in case they swivel round...)... or maybe I'll join them all in a line and make flowery bunting... (quite like that idea!)
Seems the uploading problem was due to my modem being 'stale' and I needed to switch it off and on again to cure this. (Info from a Tech Support guy called Chris at Plusnet.net). It worked and now I can upload at lightning fast speed!
Well I'm off into town/village to get my money back on some shampoo now. A couple of weeks ago, after trying vainly to get some without parabens, I went into the hairdressers and asked them. The owner recommended this...
...which I have been using. As the writing giving the ingredients is so small, I didn't check - after all the guy told me it was parabens-free - but, in fact, it contains a whole load of not-very-natural ingredients!
To add insult to injury, it cost me £13 - about 4 times what I could buy a shampoo for in a supermarket or Boots, I am taking it back! Is it a sign of old age that I'm getting more determined to complain about this kind of thing?
