Discoveries in my week.

Note to self: Messing about with uploading pictures when you have no time in which to do so, ends up something like the following. Sincere apologies in advance.

1.Fallen flowers from Valentine's down the back of the radiator is a many splendid thing.

2.So splendid, the fairies come to sneak a peek!

3. Realising that working with clay is great but this is gonna need more coats of paint and some tools to make anything good! Do it right Claire!

4. In two minds whether to present this shot glass I used for my paint

brushes to big fella, claiming it was a "blue lagoon" and to drink up! HeeeeHeeeee! Evil cackle! So I did it! But the jig was up. He was watching me the whole time painting and somehow realised the truth and that it wasn't Blue Lagoon. I was a bit deflated after all that. Hmmpp!

5. Well he didn't drink the blue lagoon but he sure did drink in this blue moon picture I gave to him as a wee "Sorry I snapped at you" (but you were getting on my last nerve, ahem.) gift.

I can't even the remember the hoopla, something really silly of course, but I ended up with the clanger punch line, "I work in a nursery, then I come home to the nursery............."

Ouch! God, how I could eat my words. I went too far and caused a heavy atmosphere. Anyway it wasn't me, it was my evil twin sister, gin swigging, smart arse coming out and I hadn't even had a drink yet. This happened before 5pm.

His favourite colour is blue and he loves the moon so I fiddled about on editing and came up with that. (I have yet to tell big fella that I have photo shopped the picture, so shhhhh!! I will let the cat out of the bag tomorrow. I feel terrible, he keeps on saying, "Look how blue it is! This is amazing!" I don't think he would mind, but then again...)

6. I discovered today that I have 100 followers! Wow Weee! Figuring it was Oscars night fast approaching I had a written piece I did ages ago when I started this blog to co inside when I got 100 followers and who to thank.

I'm kidding! To all new followers, firstly welcome to the mad house, and secondly, I was also just kidding about 5pm drinking sessions. Its 5.30pm.

Thank you so much for jumping on board, I can't believe it and I can't wait to meet you! As for the rest of you, thank you so much for all your comments, kind words, thoughts and support. I am very happy to be here with you and so glad I stumbled upon a blog! I didn't have a clue.

Still don't if this post is anything to go by. You don't realise I get serious pins and needles in my leg from sitting reading your blogs! I can't help it but I will endure gladly! Wait, don't cut off my speech, I haven't finished!!

Right, beddy byes for me soon I think. The fairy just left through the window and fluttered away through the night. I am sure she will be back!

Hope all is well in your world!!

( Just looked on my blog today, and I am back to 99 followers! Haha! Me and my big mouth showing off!! )

Lovely potpourri from your Valentine's flowers!

Only you could see the beauty in the fallen Valentine's Day flowers. You have such an amazing eye for the pretty things in life.

I think 5:30 is a very respectable time to start swilling the gin.
