up until four weeks ago monday was just monday.
i have always liked monday, it's the day mossy shed takes on 'hushed' tones for a few hours, the hecticness of saturday and sunday have passed by and for a moment i can collect my thoughts along with the laundry and used dog's hair and enjoy a bit of quiet.
that is until this lovely lady mentioned that since i liked standing on things of late, perhaps i would like to join bench monday on flickr.
and so i did...
and i was welcomed with open arms,
and ever since i have never looked at monday the same way again.
it starts around thursday when i get that 'excitement' feeling inside, my little cogs start to turn and slowly but surely an 'image' appears before me.
always portraying a lovely world,
a 'dottie angel' world...
this 'bench monday' we see what life could look like if we were to stand upon a bench and peg laundry out 'dottie angel' style.
of course her laundry line would be 'bunting' and of course she would have her birdcage perfectly positioned in the background along with only 'lovelies' hanging upon the line. no room for 'gigantic undies' that save the world here...
as i appeared in all my 'finery' for my photo shoot, i passed the downstairs living area 'en route' to our front yard.
"oh my word" coughed and spluttered a lurgified our #2... after several minutes of explosions where i couldn't quite work out if she was crying, choking, laughing or about to be sick, she regained her composure to exclaim,
"what is that thing upon your head! you can't go out in public like that, for goodness sake... you look like you have survived a serious head injury and had to be bandaged up."
i explained whilst peering into the mirror, beginning to doubt my head attire, that i was setting up my bench monday pic and thought it looked quite 'natty' and even a wee bit eclectic/bohemian perhaps...
"well, have you considered that most people will think you have fallen off your stool and had to go fix your 'open wound' before climbing back up for the photo taking" after which she collapsed into another explosion of coughing and hysterics.
i shall leave you to make up your own minds about this one, dearest readers...
on another note, but equally as 'thrilling' as my 'head gear'... 'real world interruption #3' from last week can now be revealed over here
she will be back tomorrow with more to say on this latest excitement, until then 'happy bench monday' ~ Tif
