Make-Up ... Fail

I know, I know - how could that one have lasted...?

I was doing so well, thinking I only had two days to go. Full make-up was religiously applied yesterday (a Saturday - totally unheard off except for a night on the town), even re-applying the lipstick a few times, as my DF has told me that the way these other girls/women still look immaculate at the end of a day is because they re-apply... - seriously? Who has time for that when they're at work?!!!

Well, yesterday afternoon, my youngest chap decided to empty the entire contents of his stomach across the floor (thankfully we don't have carpets and he missed the rug) and ended up sleeping on a mattress in my room for the night in case he was ill in the night as he sleeps upstairs from us. Poor little chap was exhausted when he finally fell asleep about 8:30pm, but we had quiet until 11pm, when he was ill again, but it wasn't too bad and he went straight to sleep again (though I'm not convinced he actually woke up). I was woken up at 4am by a voice at the bottom of my bed saying "My tummy's all better now" and there he was all bright and breezy and full of the joys, ready to play.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm very pleased that he is fine, but couldn't he have slept for another couple of hours before realised? Sigh...

Needless to say the last thing I felt like doing was putting make-up on this morning and grabbed the opportunity when I could of going back to bed for 90 mins. I was then woken up for lunch and figure that putting it on now won't really count. Having double-checked my list I have also discovered that the time for this task was 4 weeks, not 1 - ouch!!! What was I thinking?

Do I start again tomorrow (surely the run up to Christmas is a good time for this challenge)?



  1. I say dont punish your self after all family always comes first. What about adding an extra day on the end of the 4 weeks???

  2. Ooh - now there's a cunning plan!!! As it is still early days in the 101 things in 1001 days I have to time to make up for my sins, but when I get nearer the finish line I may have to mail you for tips to help me with my outstanding challemges :-)
