Captains log

The prompt  - Multi layered, The photographer - slightly loopy. The time - 5 mins of peace after running ridiculously late to drop the big 'uns off to school.

To be honest the first thing I thought of was Shrek.  

So I put it in my maybe list. Onions that is, Ogres are a bit hard to find ( not that time of the month yet).  Then I thought and decided a self portrait. Im multi layered, most layers are slightly leaning to the, well, lets say eccentric side, but I have layers.

A Sarah Lou is like an onion.........

Sorry anyway.....
Miss Beth and I decided to hit the markets in search of Martha Stewart punches, and I knew there would be not enough time to pull back the couch ( to get to the good light) and fart arse around with the self timer, but wanted to play anyway, so looked around and spotted my art book, and a few other bits ( knitting needle, scisor, ribbon and my fav writting pen). What the beep, a quick still life. Snapped a few shots until my chariot arrived. 
After the markets turned into Lunch and turned into Fred the Needle ( thank you for the kids corner!!!!) and turned into racing to the school to get poor long suffering childrens. 
When poor long suffering childrens and I got out of the blistering freakin cold wind(!!!!!!!!) in to my nice snug, gas heated house.  I looked in my room and thought. 

Circular Saw.

Yep no lie. Thats what I thought. So thats what I did. Of course I didn't do it till, I had rung Rod and asked him where it was and if it needed charging. Oh and I had promised not to do anything till he got home.  

I didn't wait
Remember the no patience thing.......

We have a tiny master, well not tiny but with badly placed built ins and windows, and I have our big old front door for my desk. Well, it aint quiet as big now, but now its in front of the window which is where I wanted it all along. And since I was power tooling and rearranging why  not do a major clean out???? 
Currently, its in the "has to get worse before it can get better" stage, but poor rock god husband needed to go to bed. 

So anyway ( 6 and a half years later, Ill get to the bloomin point) cause I felt the need for power I didn't get to do my self portrait, So for your viewing pleasure, a still lifeish picture of multi layered.
Stuff I can do. Or Darn tooting im talented!


Ps Mum, is the Darn tooting better then the Dudes??
