oh, i do like a little giveaway
and even more so
a 'granny chic' giveaway
up for grabs is my crocheted granny cushion.
i made her at the beginning of the year.
my little heart swelled with pride upon her completion...
since then she has led a sheltered life,
never being allowed to shine in all her glory
for fear of two and four legged members of mossy shed
causing her a blemish or injury to her pretty ways
i'm thinking it is time she found a forever home,
one that will appreciate her crocheted 'granny chic' goodness.
if you think perhaps you are the granny chic loving home for her
then all you have to do is find your thinking cap and pop it on.
now of course, once again we all know thinking caps can go astray.
but do not fret,
nor run around your abode screaming like a mad one,
causing a fright for all that live with you.
take some deep breaths,
and stay calm,
for you have plenty of time to locate your little cap.
this little giveaway is staying open until
Sunday 30th May 10:00pm pacific time
that is nearly a whole week...
see, plenty of time indeed
once your thinking cap has been located
pop it upon your nut
and then ponder,
you may have to ponder a while
but ponder you must.
i'm thinking for some it may require several days of pondering,
therefore you may have go to work,
perhaps do the grocery shop with your thinking cap,
or even the soccer run...
i'm not sure for those that like to keep a little fit,
how yoga, or swimming fairs with a thinking cap.
i see no harm in removing it whilst you 'keep fit' and then popping it back quick haste afterwards.
being sure of course to keep it safely in the changing room locker whilst you 'keep fit'
for losing it so soon after finding it would surely be quite sad
so my dearest readers
all you have to think about is a philosophy or quote,
some words or a saying,
you like to live by...
if it is one that was written by another
(for there are many famous ones out there)
then that is perfectly okay with me
but please do put who the quote or philosophy belonged to originally.
perhaps it is nothing deep,
quite simply along the lines of
"i try to smile once a day at a passing stranger"
"i make sure i hug a tree everyday"
and that is perfectly perfect for me.
i have one that i shared a little while back,
it took a little thinking with the help of my cap,
but when it popped into my little brain
it felt quite right.
"if i go to sleep at night
knowing i have visited my imagination,
however fleeting it may have been,
then i know i have used my day wisely"

i am taking a few days off
i shall be pottering with Miss Ethel,
going on a school trip with a bunch of eighteen year olds,
sending our #4 off on a two day school trip
and with a bit of luck,
all the usual fun and gripping stuff that goes on around the shed.
i will be back on Wednesday 2nd June
with a worthy winner
