Wholesome Crafting

 My sister gave me a video call the other night, where we talked of this and that and not a lot of high import, when I remarked that I had been just about to have a look at building up the little window bird feeder I had been given for Christmas.

So, I did a little unboxing  - or rather un-tinning - and upon finding glue and screws in it, I said "Ah ok, I'll leave it for tomorrow."

The idea of doing something with my hands of the degree of complexity of the world's simplest Airfix model had completely psyched me out.

My sister wasn't having any of it. "Come on. We'll do it together!"

And so we did!

It was tricky, although not as painful as I imagined, and I did make one or two cock-ups, but the little structure began to come together. I did some gluing. I did some screwdrivering. 

After about 40 minutes, it was all but complete and I was just waiting for some glue to dry before I could put the roof on, which I did later.

Video call crafting! Not something I thought I'd be doing that night.

    1. My partner (38) recently decided he was no longer happy in a relationship with me. To exit the relationship he started dating this other person who is way older than him (15 years) and specifically told me he was doing it to ensure there is little chance of us working out whatever problems we had. All of this is happening before my very eyes as we are still working out the split of the family home and other details.I have been grieving for a month now because the relationship lasted nearly 11 years. I am trying to be supportive rather than disruptive however I feel she uses my attachment to our 4years daughter. On several occasions he would leave her with me just so he can be with the new girlfriend and be happy . I understand he shouldn't wait for my grief or my permission to move on with a new partner but the fact he does it so soon and so openly is really hurtful to me. I am even considering moving to another city and cutting all ties to her and my daughter just to escape the pain. I recently found out how they were planning to raise our daughter and are making arrangements for this without even consulting me. I am completely lost but since I contacted Dr Peter my Lovers came back to me without any delay. contact Dr peter if you want your lover back in peace and joy contact him via email drpeterspellcaster21@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2348162247974 or Facebook page https://web.facebook.com/drpeterspellcaster22 blogspot: https://drpeterspellcaster22.blogspot.com/

  3. The world is full of strange new 'video call' activities these days. I guess it is live U Tube in a way.

  5. I hope so but I find bird photography difficult, my mobile phone isn't up to it, and my bridge camera has always been really disappointing. Or more likely I am at using it!
