I never really thought about it before, but it is really unusual where I live for it to be windy. The sun is shining, the sky is blue but its blowing a gale out there. There are wild, noisy gusts of wind rattling round the house and finding every loose and squeaky thing. It’s a little unsettling, at least that’s what I’m going to blame for my weird mood and the fact that I can’t seem to get stuck into my to-do-list today. It’s like there’s a primitive part of my brain that is trying to understand why the weather is different all of a sudden and can’t make any sense of it.
My mood isn’t helped by the fact that I am feeling extremely uncreative at the moment. What with work and a work course to study for, Christmas preparations to be made and my garden to get back in order now we’ve had enough rain for the weeds to start growing again I haven’t had a lot of time for making stuff. A couple of weeks back I bought a cutting machine, which I can see is going to be hugely useful for a whole lot of things but it’s going to require me to develop a fair bit of expertise. So I want to play, and I made the test project that came with machine (see below) but I have an awful lot of learning to do before I am going to be good enough to make it work the way I want it to work. Which is a little frustrating.
