May 2011

I have recovered from the 'fall' and the shoulder is still giving me twinges periodically. Perhaps just getting older?
I am having trouble on my website with contacting me...try directly at

Sorry for the inconvenience

Stash busting

I have been busy creating chaos in my house, as I pull out an overwhelming embarrassment of riches, tidying up so that I can start with at least getting rid of any duplicates of 'stuff'
We have polished wooden floors, wonderful for cleaning up after a creative session.
Busily cutting circles of fabric STR (surplus to requirements) for re-purposing as Suffolk Puffs, I dropped and slipped on one piece, upended boxes of already tidy-as-I-went threads,stablisers,beads, ribbons, braids etc., etc., name it, I sent it flying! Of course I hadn't put the lids back on the plastic tubs as I was going to catalogue the goodies. And I don't know whether at my age I have fallen over or reached that dubious place of having 'had a fall'
Severely wrenched my shoulder and a back muscle, in pain +++ now for 2 days. Giving analgesics and anti-inflammatories a work out also.
The 'tidy up' is still all over the place, worse than ever as my hubby made our dining area (using the table no less) safe by clearing everything to one side on pain of death that he throw anything out yet!
I am almost back to being able to laugh about it, mingled with trickles of tears of pain if I laugh too hard(!!) computer chair is the most comfortable seat I can manage for any length of time.
I am going to have a sale of 'embarrassingly excess to requirements" (or should that be painfully in excess) at home in the next month or so, with some of the funds to go to our flood stricken fellow Aussies

Festive Season

Doesn't the year just gallop at this time (and has the horse bolted?)
We are having Christmas breakfast with our daughter and her partner...she has taken the reigns this year (keeping to the equine flavour of the post) and then we are home alone!
Our son is in China still studying post grad, but now looking for work in Shanghai. The outlaws are all involved with their immediate offspring and the upspring (my MIL) is going interstate.
I plan to sit down for a long read, some snoozing, and having a languid day overall.
This and the next week are consumed with 'must catch up before Xmas' events. Why, oh why don't we spread the cheer a little further over the year before I start my bah humbug feeling?
For all those celebrating whatever...enjoy the moment. And from me and mine to you and yours, have a good and safe time. And share a happy thought with me and those around you.

2 in a day?

No, just me accidentally hitting the wrong button!


Yes I have been off the airwaves for entirely personal reasons. Think I am on top of most of it now.
Just where has this year gone?
