Mish mash post

Hello lads and lassies, I do hope you are well! Lovely to have you here!
Well, this week has been has been a wee bit of a whirl wind as such.
Big fellas wee granny was buried, so it was a reflective time in our home. I lit some candles for her and wrote loving thoughts through the candle smoke. It was lovely send off on the day and she will be remembered fondly and often.

Imagine my surprise and delight to given this wonderful card and gift in the post recently!
It was from a lovely new pen friend named Ashley, who I met through wonder woman Dede! She sent me with a lovely note from her mum, pens and a gorgeous notebook, which believe it or not is just what I LOVE!! Stationary! The gifts came at such a well needed time and put a smile on my face and a glow in my heart!
Now, Ashley is a very talented girl, just look at this piece of art! Isn't it great? She will never know how lovely it was to see this when I opened the card. So much so, that she inspired me to do some new drawings with my new pens, which you can find here. Thank you Ashley and thank you Dede!!

Now, remember the disaster called "I blew the oven up?" Well, it ain't a Aga (sweet dreams) but it is a brand new spanking oven! Praise be! Oh, so fresh and so clean! (Unfortunately it also smells of plastic, a bit got stuck inside from the cover.) I can't wait to get baking baby!!

Injury of the week!
I woke up the other morning to find a big scratch on the side of my eye.
The culprit of this attack? Umm, me I guess. I did it in my, it would seem,very restless sleep.I'm a X men style weirdo or what?
Then again it does reselmble a Harry Potter scar, you never know, Hogwarts could be calling!

There is certain times when the home takes on a glowing light and I know that's when my shadow comes to visit me. Like today.

My shadow does a dance for me.............

and makes me laugh......................
But soon has to say goodbye
because as quick as the sun moves in the sky
The clouds can some times be faster.
I gotta fly now, as it is same situation on the job front, but my luck is in, I am getting some support with my work load!! That's all I need, which I am grateful for.

I received a lovely award which I will have to post next time, it gonna be a 7 random things post. That should be interesting. So as Monday rolls on again, I bid you goodbye, I am going to try and catch up with you all!! Hope all is well in your world!

I still chuckle every time I think of you blowing up your oven so the new one makes me smile even more. Must be time for more shortbread! Hogwarts? Harry Potter never had such a beautiful adversary such as you ;)

Rue said...

Oooh, you are lucky that scratch wasn't on your eye! You may have to sleep with your hands tied!

A nice day to have your shadow visit!

Dede said...

So thrilled for you getting a new oven! Time for more shortbread cookies. They were so yummy.

Ashley loves her new pen pal, you made a little girl very happy.

Ouch on your eye, that looks like it hurts.
