Where are the matchsticks, my eyes are just about still opened and could use a little help staying that way. I had a very early start this morning, my son was going to Amsterdam early this morning for the weekend and quiet is not in his nature. Can you imagine a group of ten young men in their twenties, all quite large, partying? I can and it's not pretty, believe me. Sorry Amsterdam!!
Chris worked yesterday at his normal job and then he had his "fun" job last night. That left him about 3 hours before he was due to get picked up for the airport. So, what did he do, rest..not a chance. He just stayed awake and set off with no sleep. My body cringes at the thought, but he seemed to be doing okay this morning. It'll be later in the day that it really hits him...like a ton of bricks I should think.
Last night the packing was done and he was organised, but this morning..well about dawn to be precise...he was wandering around the house trying to find something to do until he left. The result was that Charlie was convinced, absolutely certain, that there had to be something very wrong....could be a burglar..or worse!! So, we all ended up getting up, just for some peace. Charlie of course thought it was marvelous and really exciting.
Eventually, Chris was picked up and after many "reminders" from me...well, nags actually, he left. It was only about an hour later, on checking his room, that I discovered he must have played around with his bag this morning and taken things out. But...yes, it's that but again...he had forgotten to put his underpants and socks back in.
So, if your in Amsterdam and you see a group of young males.....one who looks absolutely exhausted and has no socks on, say Hallo to Chris!! I'd love to see his face tomorrow morning when he tries to get dressed. I think that after a hard night partying. ....shopping for socks and pants will be the last thing he needs, lol! Enjoy!!
I for one, will be out for the count tonight......no partying for me!! The upside is that this weekend will be peaceful in the house, or that's the theory. I have promised my DH that I won't worry about what Chris is up to......well, not verbally anyway. But, you know what we mums are like, to us they will always be our children, even though they may be grown we are convinced they will run into trouble without us.
They could miss their plane...or worse still have their wallets stolen...or loose their passports...maybe get robbed.....or kidnapped...ahhh!!! Breath deeply, be sensible June...it's only Amsterdam!!! I reassure myself he's been there lots of times and nothing nasty has happened. Then my imagination takes over again and I'm off......white slavers, drug smugglers, anything as long as it's a really far fetched and silly idea runs through my over active imagination.
Perhaps it's really is a good thing I'm tired or I wouldn't sleep a wink tonight!!!
My gift to you this evening is a peaceful one, which in the circumstances is very appropriate. These two backgrounds show just what you can make with images, brushes, a little texture and lighting effects. I love these papers for their serenity and calm. By changing the colour and lighting you change the mood of the paper, almost like your switching the time of day. Have a look and see what you think.

We'll that's all from me folks, have a wonderful weekend. I'll let you know what condition Chris comes back in!
