Portal of Power..

...this is what is taking up my time this week. This picture is what I refer to as 'the shit stage' - that is you've done the donkey work but there is still at least another 2/3 hours to make it resemble the Skylanders portal of power.  I also am attempting to make the Skylander character to go on the top which is highly ambitious given that I don't do fiddly. I did get an 'A' in art but that was in 1986 so you see my problem.
Actually this could be at its finest hour stage!


See above for the reasons why I haven't blogged much at all this week.  In other news, I am tired of my children's school already and its only 2 weeks in. Sigh.  My son's birthday is tomorrow - he'll be 9. I asked him how he felt and he replied "I'm one step closer to death!" Lovely.  My husband is working on a new business model which I shall share with you all once its up and running.  I have been given the prestigious title of Marketing Manager.  Whilst I was pondering my new position I realised that I have not worked for 9 years. During my time as Stay At Home 'daytime telly' Mum I've written a children's book entitled "It's Great being 2" there would have been a mass of follow up books had any publishers snapped it up. I wrote to about 30 and got as many rejection letters.  I did sell novelty cakes (see above) for a little while until someone questioned me on whether they would get food poisoning if it had been decorated 3 days prior to a party. I also realised that my hourly rate was so nominal that unless you are making loads there's no real money in it and then there's the PTA. I've arranged events, sold tickets, walked into shops and businesses and asked for free stuff and got it! and much more.  Pretty good skills I would say and now I can add 'Marketing Manager' to a start up company.

Until next time....
