To skip my feable attemps at humour and to read the real news, scroll to *!
I'm not stitching anything at the moment, though I have done about three rows of knitting.
I seem to have lost my magnifying glasses, emboidery scissors AND my stitching mojo.
I know that this is careless of me, but I've put all of them down somewhere & cannot remember where. Not that I can see anything once I put it down, these days ...
If I've left them at your house or you find them aimlessly wandering in your neighbourhood, can you send them back to me here asap, please, because I have three shelves of stash waiting at home to be stitched!
"What have you been doing with yourself?" you might ask.
I've been busy.
I've been sulking, moaning and groaning.
I've fogged up every mirror in my house from all the sighing I've done.
I've stopped answering the phone, chatting, reading emails and quaffing red wine. Even shoe shopping with the princesses hasn’t cheered me up.
I've watched 5 seasons each of House M.D. and NCIS. Usually, I rarely watch Tv (by the way, Hugh Laurie is the spitting image of my brother!).
I've been swearing a lot. Lucy, Harry & Gypsy run for cover ever time they hear the phrase “Oh (choose your favourite rude word and insert)!”
The most creative thing I’ve done lately is switched the colour of the pen I use to do maths homework.
Worst of all, I’ve even been tempted to throw away my old cross stitch mags because I can’t stand being reminded of all my unrealised dreams.
*Quite seriously folks, life's pretty good. I've just been busy doing other things: family, studies, etc; and coping with the usual winter bugs (one of which meant that all alcohol was off the menu).
The last week in July, my youngest daughter, aka the Cadet Princess, arrived back in Brisbane after a 6 week work placement in New Zealand. She lives away from home all the year round, but having her overseas (again) made her seem further away than ever.
Here are a few family pics from Sunday:
The Crown Princess with her Consort
The Cadet Princess & Crown Prince
The Crown Prince with his Birthday Princess
My Living Doll
(the Middle Princess)
and The MOTH & his fat wife
(I'll feel better about this pic in 5 years time, no doubt)
Let's hope you have your mojo safe and well and that it's not off holidaying with mine & that you, too are doing interesting things in other aspects of your lives.
Happiness & laughter to one and all,
