I love fiddly jobs, i like when i have to mend things invisibly, sometimes I think I should have been called Cinderella. When I have to sort out hundreds of multicoloured beads into their individual colours, I don’t dread the task, I plan when I’m going to be able to be able to do it, what containers I’m going to use, whether I need tweezers, labels, Sellotape ……
Most people think I’m mad. I do too if I’m honest, but hey ho, it’s fun!
One of my favourite modules when I was studying for my degree was Nanofabrication
At Royal Holloway we were lucky to have a clean room in our physics department, so all ‘Nano-fab’ students got to dress up as proper scientists
Posting that photo of me on the Internet is probably sufficient proof of my madness for any doubting Thomas’s out there!
For other interpretations of this week’s theme have a look at:
You really are my niece! I love the fiddly jobs too. I remember one year, sitting in the rare sunshine on a March day with a tray on my knee with a jam jar full of tiny mixed beads and sorting them into individual colours and containers. My sewing box has more tools than a hospital theatre and I also love improvising to get some special effect. I have a roomful of projects waiting to be started…… Time, I need more time.
Amazing isn’t it how we have so many things in common. I hope you don’t hoard things like I do. I have this eye that sees a ‘potential’ in everything so I keep it until I get some time…… I have an attic full of projects waiting for me to get some time!!!
Really like your novel interpretation of the “delicate” theme!
Thank you! It really was very delicate work! No room for a shaky hand!
I can see where science might be fun if you get to dress up in such ramatic costumes to fiddle around like that with delicate instruments!
That’s dramatic, of course! 🙂
