my lovely lot are on midwinter break...
(hence the crappity crap weather)
i knew it was coming, i just hadn't realized it would come quite so quickly.
(that's midwinter break and not the rain)
once again another week just whizzes by and i'm left pondering as to how i manage to idle my days quite easily by, with glue sticks, paint and paper.
yet when it comes to laundry matters and other such delights that befall me, i suddenly lose my ability to move.
Miss Ethel has, i am pleased to report, been motivated like she has never been motivated before, i am tremendously delighted with her 'outpourings' this week...
all destined to be placed on the shelves of my little store next Thursday.
the two of us have many more hours ahead of 'togetherness', doing what we do best and as our 'moments of creativity' will have to be fitted around my clan and their daily 'wants and needs', i'm thinking it might be rather sensible of me to take a few days to dally in the real world.
but before i bid you 'fare thee well' i must thank you most kindly for brightening my days,
with your words of encouragement,
thoughts of clogs (have you dreamt about them yet?)
general all round niceness towards me and myself...
i wish for you this sunday a little act of kindness or love,
not in a 'oh lordy, it's colin firth at the door declaring undying love for me' sort of way
(well actually that wouldn't go amiss)
but just knowing you are needed somehow, somewhere by someone.
the dog or cat counts
i'm also thinking houseplants are acceptable.
in fact i can't think of anything nicer than knowing one owned a houseplant that loved one.
i don't know that feeling... the only houseplant i owned sadly departed soon after entering the shed.
when i told my father, a lover of plants, the great excitement of owning a houseplant,
exclaiming the responsiblity i had taken on, bringing a little green friend into the fold.
i know, that was the moment i made a 'grown man' weep...
she will see you on tuesday, with yet more 'thrilling tales' from a Brit misplaced abroad ~ Tif
