SILLY SATURDAY - MY CV MASK
“It’s easy” she said!
All you need to make a mask is a sock
and a pair of scissors
no sewing required -
so I could have saved nearly £200
spent on a new sewing machine!
Before I used one of my new socks,
I thought I would try it first
on one of Mr. HCB’s old socks.
It WAS a clean one -
the other sort doesn’t bear thinking about -
from the very back of his sock drawer.
Downstairs I crept
while he was still in the garden
and watched the video again.
Mind you, it didn’t help that the lady
was speaking a foreign language!
Watching carefully, I followed the instructions :
First of all you cut off the toe
then you cut off a couple of inches above the heel -
and then comes the hard bit -
you cut from the toe backwards
to make two strips -
looking at it, I wasn’t sure
it was quite right
so I watched the video again.
Ah - I’d forgotten to cut from the top
of the strips to round it off -
that should do it!
Except of course, it didn’t.
What she didn’t say in the video
was that it would make you look
as if you were a little pig with a snout!
I’m glad I only used a very old sock
and I think I might need to get
that sewing machine working after all.
All I can say is that I would
probably get 10 out of 10 for trying
and I did do my best!
However, the bigger issue now is - with gloves on
how do I undo a bar of chocolate
and eat it?
I think I might need to ask
my friend, Susan, about that -
she is a whizz at wearing gloves,
a hat and scarf and then undoing
a bar of chocolate -
with a knife and fork!
I knew that silly game we used to play
at Church parties
would come in useful one day!
Have a great weekend folks
