....ohh and pencils and paper

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Do you ever have so many things on the go at once it's like herding cats with everything going in all sorts of directions and you can't catch any of it to finish.....that's me at the moment. I am about to start a project using all of this...
But this book that my daughter gave me to read keeps complicating things....
I have even been seen lately stirring the dinner pot with this book in my hand or on the kitchen bench. I cannot put it down. So instead of starting the project above I keep getting distracted.
So I have come to realise that when I get like this I need a little break. This was reinforced this morning when trying to work I knocked a large very sharp pair of scissors off the ironing board which landed sharp point down through my little toe. After I said 'gosh, gee and ouch' instead of *%#@#** I decided a break is definetely what I need. So I am going to take a little blogging break and spend some time with my Mum and recharge my batteries a little for the weekend. I plan on becoming really good friends with one of these...
and doing a lot of chatting and having a lovely big slice of my Mum's gorgeous Apple Pie to go with it.
