Darcy's Postcard Challenge
is at the end of this post.
|(click the pic to play along)|
It's been a mixed week
and I've been laughing and smiling
one minute and then worrying the next.
Just about sums up life, eh?!
Anyway, putting the worries to one side
I'll focus on the laughing and smiling.
This post by Maggi
over at Just Add Glitter and Stir.
It made me and Hope laugh until we cried.
Thank you, Maggi ;D
found by Hope on her old computer before it
went to the big computer heaven in the sky.
Taken at Hampton Court a few years ago;
it's Grant's smiling face,
totally oblivious to Luke's focus of attention,
that makes me laugh every time I look at it.
It's my computer wallpaper right now,
so I'm laughing a lot!
SO WRONG and SO FUNNY!
You won't be surprised to learn that Luke
introduced it to me.
who went hunting at the weekend.
She was outside in the sunshine
and heard some birds chirping in the trees.
Without thinking, she jumped up onto
the garden bench (that shocked her)
and then stood waving a proverbial finger at them!
The birds laughed at her, of course.
And we had to lift her back off the bench.
Grant has given the go-ahead for me to drop a day
at work with effect from the
start of the September term.
I haven't been able to have a chat about it
with the headteacher at
work yet, but I'm hopeful that all will be ok.
BIG SMILE (more arting time.
Oh yes, Grant, and more cooking, cleaning,
washing and ironing)
(though less money, aaarrgghh).
A very glowing letter home
from Hope's school.
She gets her brains and dedication
from me, FACT.
Luke's boss at the barber's
has offered him 'a chair' after the
apprenticeship ends in the summer.
He gets his creativity from me, FACT.
The kindness of Suzanne over at
I'll be explaining why in a separate post
over the weekend.
It deserves a post all of it's own.
In the meantime,
pop over to Suzanne's blog.
She has such a beautiful way of writing.
Ok, hopefully that's given you an
idea of why I've been
laughing and smiling this week.
I'll post this with Virginia
before visiting the other lovely Rockers.
Darcy's Postcard Challenge
this week is
The very first idea that popped into my head
was a Lumberjack and specifically
"I'm a Lumberjack"
by the wonderful Monty Python,
first performed in 1969 (yikes!!!)......
So here is my postcard
depicting the cross-dressing lumberjack
(who is, in fact, a deranged barber dreaming
of being a crossdressing lumberjack!)
with his girlie on his arm.
Oh no, it's the scary hands again!
Fairly scary girlie too!!
Hahaha! By now you
will realise that
Auntie Nerys' 'cannabis'
plants are, in fact, a
new variety of tomato
plant. Forgive my
little joke at your
expense. I couldn't
resist! And now you
know what's in my
deposit box, hahaha.
Warm regards, James.
Well thank goodness for that!
I was rather concerned that Lord James
had got himself mixed up with the
supply of illegal drugs.
I wonder what's in the deposit box,
Lord James doesn't seem too bothered
about our Ken finding out, does he?
Thank you for looking at my postcard
which I had lots of fun putting together.
I'll try and visit as many of the other
Post-Carders as possible,
but please forgive me if I don't
get to see yours.
There are only so many hours in the day!
