I have been casting for 6 hours today.
I now have a crashing headache, with little sparkly lights going off behind my eyes, stiff neck and my hands feel like they're made from sandpaper.
Casting slip is extremely porous, and strips all the moisture from my hands so that my skin gets very dry,rough and liable to cracking. Not even my intensive balm hand moisturiser is making any difference so I'll have to apply it every 30 minutes to attempt to prevent my hands looking like desiccated claws.
Still, at least they'd match my feet.
And I'm feeling disgruntled.
Usually after a marathon casting session I feel all warm and virtuous, basking in the knowledge of a task well done. Today I just feel whingey and poorly. I'm hoping PP will suggest I go for a little lie down with small dog for company, and bring me a cup of tea and my dinner on a tray.
I'm just not up to this full-on, full-day working thing.
Anyway here is my mood in a picture...........
