This last week bacon and I have had a lot in common, we both jump into the frying pan often! Life as usual was confused last weekend...lots happening and my inability not to know when enough was enough. I love to say yes to things but sometimes my body just gently reminds me that I am not as close to super woman as I would like to be....well, not so gently sometimes! This week was one of those times.
I really have to practice saying "No", but I'm sure that you all understand how it happens, you open your mouth and out comes "Yes". How does it do that? The message in my brain starts as one thing but by the time it reaches my mouth....it's different. Personally I think there's a little gremlin in there who pulls the wrong lever just for the shear fun to see what chaos it can cause. My gremlin must have an overdeveloped sense of humour it does it so often. I'm sure that I must look surprised half the time when the word "Yes" pops out of my mouth, a bit like a puppy that discovers it can bark and scares itself when it first does it.
One of the good things at the weekend was my brother was visiting from Belgium with his kids and wife. It was lovely to see everyone again during the a big family lunch I did on Sunday. Lots of people, lots of cooking...but the good bit was everyone could chat and catchup over the meal. They don't make it over often and so the family all try to drop in over the weekend to see them.
My brother works in Brussels but they have a small farm with horse, sheep, chickens, pigs, llamas and alpacas. My SL breeds alpacas so they have quite a few!! My niece Sophie, who's seven, brought me a lovely basket with eggs she had gathered on Saturday morning before they left home....you can't get fresher than that!!
The children had grown so much since I last saw them. It's just unbelievable how fast children can sprout up. I swear that they are part human, part weed, somewhere along the evolutionary chain the weed gene must have crept in.
Now for scrapbooking......this week I have made a new kit as a gift that you can collect over the next three posts. It's called Mary, Mary a bit like the nursery rhyme. It's got some flowers, rikrak, curly frames, bell flowers and of course Mary! Take a look.
You can download Part 1 of Mary, Mary here
I've only done a 4Shared link today as I can't upload to Media Fire at the moment...not sure why. Sorry about that!!
Edit: You can download with Media Fire here
Well, I'm off..back to the grind stone. Drop back and collect the rest of the kit in the next two posts.
