I think either paint would be ok. Depends on the finish on you embellishments I suppose. I popped in my Hobbycraft last week and looked for the advent houses. I didn’t see any.
I went to Hobbycraft before my card making week and was very disappointed with the stock in store . I should have ordered online , they did have loads of Christmas things though as you would expect at this time of the year. Hoping that you feel better soon, so you can enjoy your time off . Hope B stays ok as well .
Hope the cold soon goes, OBL. It might account for some of the wretched feelings over your parents' visit, I suppose but my heart goes out to you over that. So difficult.Hope B continues to be better too.
Just catching up, so sorry to bring the subject of your parents back up!My mum had a lot of issues due to her upbringing. I adored my grandparents, and learning more about how they treated my mum upset me. I can now put it into the context of the times it happened (1950's) and my mum had counselling after my grandma died. However I strongly feel she should have had this much much earlier, looking back it impacted her hugely all her life. Now her and my dad's relationship is strained. They are so so different and it worked while dad worked and she was raising kids, but I feel they barely tolerate each other now and are very naggy and snipy in company which I hate. On their own they are fine. But my mum broke my trust four years ago and I am still not over it. It put a large distance between us, and I have kept the relationship at a distance since, to protect myself. And also come to the conclusion that what I expected from her was too much.So anyway, feel free to rant away on here if it helps, but I wouldn't rule out some sort of counselling, it may take a couple of goes to find the right person, but going through the trauma your mum put you through when you were 11/12 may help your relationship with her.And I hope you start to feel better soon. We had the double whammy of stinking cold, and the people in the house who didn't get the cold got covid! PCR test galore for two weeks 🤦
