Achievements for Today

A Fixed Tortoise

Today was an especially busy day for gluing. I not only glued an angel together but I also glued a hind-leg back onto a tortoise.

The tortoise was made by my youngest sister when she was waaay younger than she is now and so she’s probably forgotten about it long ago, but it’s been holding my collection of rakhis now for about two decades, all with a broken leg. It deserves a medal for that kind of bravery, right?

The angel fell over when I was cleaning the window ledge and snapped in half just underneath the boosems that it doesn’t have (not because they snapped off but because they weren’t there in the first place, which makes me wonder if angels are sexless and genderless creatures). It can’t be easy being an angel with a broken torso. Anyway, all I have to do now is mix a little clay to the same colour as her/his dress and patch him/her up. Piece of cake. It should only take me about six months to get around to doing that.

The other cool thing I did today was remember something that I did last week (Sat 2nd Oct 2021) for the very first time in the history of my whole life: I brushed my teeth at the same time as chewing gum, which is something that I’m willing to bet you ten pence that you’ve never done yourself. In fact, I bet there are very few people in the world who have done this. Perhaps I’m the only one. Hmm, perhaps I should write to the Guiness Book of World Records. Or maybe send a letter to The Times? Or… I know what I’ll do. I’ll write about it on my blog. šŸ˜‚

Have a nice rest of your day. Over and out.
