M & D are home...


As we speak, M & D are home... After six weeks of wandering aound Paris, Spain, London and Poland on their belated honeymoon - they are Aussie side again. It was a wonderfully romantic way of celebrating their first anniversary together and I know they have only been away for 6 weeks but I have missed them. Not that we live in one and other pockets so to speak but I think knowing they were so far away played a big part in it. If I sound like an overprotective mother I am not, but this time (2nd) they went away I felt quite odd about them going. Perhaps if I had to be honest, a lot has happened in the world since they went away last time and I was a little concerned. But they are home again - travel weary I expect- looking forward to their own bed and those little comforts that make up home. I can imagine that there is one four footed creature who will be purrrfectedly happy to see them. Yookie (sp may be off here) is a bit of a sook and dislikes being babysat - ask P and I - we know only too well about her antics!!!! Now when they get home it will either be to an ecstatic reunion or the ' Well, your home are you? See if I care!' accompained by a tail up - glance over a departing shoulder, coolest of looks... Those of you who are cat owners can probably relate to that one. Mind you from all accounts she has been treated like a princess by the friends they have had housesitting. M & D may well have to put up with a snub or two for a few days until things return to 'Yookie normal'.

I spent yesterday cleaning - well partially... Let me explain I am a Virgo, but please don't hold that against me. Since I have begun my latest passion of CQ parts of the house have gone to pieces. Now while I can live in a chaotic state while I am creating - it wears thin when I am not... I don't possess a sewing room or nook or even a cupboard which makes it worse so I have bits all over the place but mainly in the lounge room. And at the rate those bits were 'growing' you would have thought I was feeding them - no comment here from anywhere!!!! I digress - so yesterday I started by 'just moving one little pile' which lead to another little pile and so the story goes... By yesterday afternoon I was cursing about the mess I had made... But at least I have a 'tidied' shambles as opposed to an untidy shambles. Strangely all that sorting helped me in some sort of way 'clear a path' about my block for sharonb's classes... I think that I know what I want to do on it but am a little afraid just to 'let it rip so to speak'... I am sure I have a split personality in regards to my crafting... One side of me like to do little tiny stitches well executed and dainty - the other side wants to have bold swirls and curls that leap off the (what ever I am doing) saying 'Look at me!!!!!' I tussle with this conflict of interests all the time... But at least my block is 'speaking' to me again so now that I have tidied it all up - I am going to pull it all out again... But isn't that just what Life is about...

Go for it Sharon. What's the worst that can happen? You might end up with a block you can't stand and at a later stage throw in the bin, but at least you will have experimented and learnt. I really like the idea of swirls and bits that leap off the block. Besides where is the rule written that says you can't have dainty and big and bold on the same peice? Have a lovely weekend. I'm so glad the travellers had a wonderful time and are home safely. Yookie sounds wonderful - and yes I can identify with the "I don't care if you are home" attitude.

jacqui is right Sharon . . . Leap! ( . . . am I a fine one to talk or what? {g} ... ) Don't ya find though that as you lift and re-stack those piles that another is birthed right on the very spot that you moved the first one from?! and you had absolutely nothing to do with the parental process?! {gg}
