I hate wasting paper. Its a big thing with me. Which makes it hard to work in an office because there's so much paper waste. And not only do you have to waste a lot of paper, you then have to store it all for seven years in case the tax man wants to look at it. It drives me nuts when someone takes a fresh piece of A4 paper to write a few words on instead of getting an old envelope or scrap of paper from the bin and using it. And I hate it when some idiot faxes you about 20 pages of rubbish when all you really needed was the second page.
And I'm a great one for putting paper through the printer/fax twice so both sides get used. It drives my kids crazy because they print out a school or Uni assignment without checking and then realise it has all this rubbish on the back. Then I get angry at them because they want to print it out again and waste even more paper.
Which leads me to my filing cabinets which are so full that I can't fit anything else in there without jamming my fingers. So I decided to clean out the top drawer today and get rid of anything that was before 2002. And I can't believe the amount of paper that has accumulated. Insurance policies are the worst. You get one sheet of policy then about 50 pages of the rubbish you're supposed to read about the policy.
Anyway I have a huge pile of paper now to go through the printer. And this is only one drawer. Plus there's another pile almost as big that has to go through the shredder.
And speaking of wasted canvas – I'm off tomorrow to get a cover up done of this crappy little ladybird tattoo I had done about 15 years ago. See this is why when you get a tattoo you need to go big and bold. Little things tend to end up smudged together. Although this was always crap. The shadow was never any good. So will have new photos tomorrow. I'm gettting swallows – one on each wrist. They'll have to have a fair bit of black in them obviously to cover this.
Its been a while since I've been in the chair. Hope I don't disgrace myself.
