With Grandma in China, the other thing is that I have to cook my own breakfast and lunch, and Mum has to cook my dinner. The problem is that we're both pretty lazy, so I end up not eating much for breakfast and lunch, and she tries to get out of cooking dinner by bringing take away food home. The first dinner tasted meh, but the meals after that were good.
Last night one of her friends came for dinner, so we had eel and fish, and then she went out with her friend afterwards. I washed the bowls last night, but didn't wash the dishes because they had the fish and eel in them. Mum put the food into the fridge, but didn't wash the dishes and in the morning they were still left out.
I couldn't stand the sight of them, but I gagged when I wash them because of the smell. In case you didn't know I hate the smell of leftover food, raw fish, raw meat, and rotten stuff. I had to wash them so many times to get the smell out that my fingers were wrinkled afterwards. The dishes still smell a bit fishy (literally), and it's particularly bad on the chopsticks. I think the wood absorbs odours really easily, and Mum didn't even put them into water to soak, so I had to scrub really hard to get the fish skin that's stuck to the dish. And she didn't put the rice back in the fridge, so it went all smelly and soggy in the rice cooker.
But that's enough of my rant on disgusting dishes. It's partly my fault for not doing them last night anyway.
Looking at Helena's and Cinda's blogs, I see that their holidays are pretty fun, while mine is very bland in comparison. Obviously something like going to Tasmania is beyond my power, but maybe I could do a small fun project for myself. The handwriting goal doesn't really count because it's not exactly fun, even if it is pretty relaxing.
I haven't done any drawings at all for a long time now, and my last proper painting was two years ago. So maybe I might take some time to do some drawing, even just a sketch is good. Don't expect too much, I might not even do them. Even if I do, I won't be able to put them up due to my lack of a scanner. I wish I was one of those people who could make great drawings on photoshop. Some of them are really amazing, like the picture at the top of the post and these:
