Celebrate the small things 28.4.17

On Monday I promised myself to take things a little easier this week. The best laid plans...

It's been a good week, though. Lots of extra rehearsals for the show next week (eek!) and plenty of work to keep me busy. I even managed to put together a couple of competition entries.

Having had a bit of a mental breakdown on Sunday when out clothes shopping, I actually managed to buy some jeans this morning. When did that get to be such a complicated task? When did they start giving styles names? And are we really wearing high waistlines and tiny ankle cuffs? Anyhoo, I shall take them out for a test run this evening: I'm playing my uke at a ceilidh, and there will be dancing.

Also this week, I have a letter in Leisure Painter magazine titled 'Yoga for Creativity, as a reward for which I have been sent a copy of Places of the Mind, a beautiful art book that I would never have thought of buying, but that I can see I'm going to enjoy.

Have a good weekend, folks.

  2. The book is a nice gift...all because you wrote something :) Enjoy the big event and the new jeans. I haven't bought any in ages. And good luck in the competition!

    1. I'm happy report the jeans worked very well last night, and endured the rigours of Stripping The Willow.

  3. Are you still dragging new jeans around the garden & using the yard brush on them before wearing, like in the good old days ?

    1. Ah, those were the days! It's hard to imagine now that rock chick was me.

    1. Thanks, Erika. I don't know why I find it so difficult to buy clothes, but I do. I'm not normal!
