It has been one hectic week or two around here…..surprise visits from a brother from down south whom I haven’t seen for a couple of years, working ‘full-time’ (or much more than usual) as one of our key staff members came down with pneumonia and was taken to hospital, (and yes, he’s getting much better) and organising meetings for a new artisans association in our district….getting it off the ground has been a full-on experience…..writing policy documents and organisational structures etc has been a time-warp-kinda-experience that’s for sure - I’ve really had to step back to my teaching and management days.
And now I’m preparing for our Relay for Life this weekend, which has snuck around kind of quickly…..I wasn’t expecting it quite yet, so meetings for that and, phew, I’m exhausted!
But unexpectedly, my wonderful man noticed my ‘stress’ and brought me a gorgeous flower from the garden to remind me to STOP….and smell…..
Isn’t it just perfect? (and isn’t he wonderful?) The photo doesn’t quite do it justice as it has such a gorgeous deep apricot centre that flows into the rich colours of sunset……just an amazing creation. I am lucky in so many ways!
It was also a ‘pleasant’ stumbling block when the television stopped working last week….it gave me the perfect opportunity to sit at my machine and catch up. Normally I get home and flop in front of the telly with a coffee and ‘veg’ for a bit. But I’ve managed to catch up on my ‘Tis the Season’
and today being my first ‘free day’ for a while, means I get to catch up some more, and hopefully even finish it! After the obligatory housework of course…….
which makes me wonder……why don’t houses come in a self-cleaning mode? Whoever patents that will be one rich and very clever bunny! I know, I’d be first in line….forget first person to Mars…..I’d rather have a self-cleaning house, wouldn’t you?!
Speaking of which, there’s a load of washing to hang out………………. Rosie???????
