My Muse has left me

Oh dilemma... I came on holiday with lots of supplies to create and apart from the faces canvas and a couple of birthday cards for China i haven't done anything but lounge and read. Maybe it is the heat, I don't know but I wonder up to my art room and hope for inspiration and is it there....no! my muse has done a runner.
So far this holiday there have been a number of stress factors.
It took us 30 hours to drive here instead of the usual 17. We had thought it would take a bit longer as we were towing a trailer with a quad down but 30 hours - horrendous. The reason it took so long was because the transporter we came in lost the 5th gear by Valencia so we had to poodle along with fingers and toes crossed hoping that we would make it. Thankfully we did.
Then when we got here Stuart's Corvette had decided to leak gear box transmission fluid all over the garage floor!!! nightmare,another vehicle out of commission. The transporter got fixed at a cost of £3,500 euros (the Corvette has yet to be fixed). Then my Betty boop jeep decided she wanted to join in the fun and was misfiring; as i write this Stuart has taken her to the garage to see if she can be mended!
To top it all (yes there is more disaster) when he went down to the beach with the kids to go on the Jetski the steering had seized so the jetski would only go in a straight line.... so you've guessed it that too is in the garage. Things can only get better (or so "they" say lol).
So maybe this will explain why my muse has gone - I need some wooza time and then maybe it will come back.
I have "Vintage Women with Wings" Altered book to work on, I shall give it a go and also a Ball gown to make for PW.
Hopefully the next time I blog I will have some art to share with you all.
Take care xxx

Oh Honey...so sorry for all those woes...you are susposed to be on a play vacation...not the stars of a horror movie...Hope things look up this week and all of that machinery get going for you..I know Stuart must be so frustrated. Give him some choclate and ice cream and see if that will help.
Love you guys. I am sure your muse is just resting...not to worry ...

Oh, how dreadful. Well, my friend -- if the muse is gone, maybe that means you really need to soak up the sun and relax. Put away the glue and papers and let the inspiration of Spain sink over you. I know your wonderful talent and your muse will return, all the more grateful for its wee rest!
