I have a
depressing birthday coming up. In an ideal world, I would like to ignore it, but it seems that this year, I am not going to be able to do that. I have been given a bag of gifts. Nice, I hear you say. Hmm, we’ll see….. I have been given instructions to open a gift a day until the Dreaded Day, and to post evidence somewhere. I’m choosing to post the evidence here, so that only a handful of people in the world will witness the Great Unveilings.
I swear they have that wrong, but I didn’t like to put them right.
A knitted curling stone! Whatever’s next? Watch this space…….
A couple of weeks ago, a very dear colleague left us for pastures new. She gave us all a cute butterfly as a gift. Here is what I did with mine:
I’ve worn it in a scarf almost every day since she left. She is a scarf wearer, and loves butterflies. This is my homage to Helen….
Some random photos from my memory stick:
The fridge at work. The idea is that we bring back a ‘tasteless’ magnet when we go on holiday. Well, we have some pretty tasteless ones, so that worked…. But they do make us laugh.
Part of the ‘New York Skyline’ – actually a salt and pepper set, again, quite tasteless, but again looks kind of cool in the shadows when the sun is behind them. Always makes me smile when I go into the kitchen and spot them. Well, it takes all sorts I suppose….
And, for good measure, an actual skyline photograph;
Nearer to home : Stones found half way down Fairfield Fell in The Lake District. Cute, eh? I wonder who did that, and who it was done for.
Picture of Big Ben:
Picture of the paralympics:
Walking in Yorkshire..
Quite easy to work out which fridge magnets are mine then….
