Welcome to my fellow
Fall Fearless and Fly-ers,
my entry for week 4 is at
the bottom of this post.......
Is it me or are we hurtling towards
Christmas at breakneck speed?!
So what's been good for me this week -
Hope's 16th birthday celebrations.
She and her friends thoroughly enjoyed
the new Twilight film (they actually timed how long
it took for a male character to get his kit off!).
The next day she and her friend, Ciera,
who she's known since they both started
primary school at the age of 4,
went shopping at Bluewater followed
lunch at a venue of their choice.
They went to McDonalds.
And, of course, she had to have CAKE.
Colin the Caterpillar cake.
She lives in that poor/silly/mad cow onesie :)
With the aid of a startling array of tablets,
Small Cat has started eating!
She has even licked her bowl clean a
couple of times.
I can't tell you how happy this makes me.
Some brilliant buys in charity shops this week
eg I found the most wonderful retro curtains,
perfect for Christmas - bright red satin with
white starburst type snowflakes.
Full length, perfect condition.
I know, it's madness.
Luke remarked that they 'smell' retro too
(I actually don't mind that smell
but I'll wash them!)
Hope and I have arranged to go to
just before Christmas.
I've booked a nearby Premier Inn
(very near to you, Missy K!)
and I'm really looking forward to spending
some time with Hope, immersing ourselves
in Christmas spirit (well, I won't be driving!).
A surprise package from my
Postmans Knock friend, Lesley.
She was sorting through her 'stuff' and found an
old (1950's-1960's) map of Kent and London.
She thought I might be able to make use of it
and sent it to me. A very kind thought
which made me happy :)
That's me done for this week.
I'll leave my link with Virginia and
visit the other Rockers later.
Right now I've got to prise Luke from his bed
so he can go to work.
Wish me luck......!!
The 3 prompts at
Fall Fearless and Fly
for Week 4 are
Headline Prompt: Security: What makes you feel safe and secure? What rattles your sense of
security? Where do you go for comfort and refuge?
Colour prompt: Cool colours (blues, greens, violets etc).
Quote prompt: You can't make a place for yourself in the sun if you keep taking refuge under the family tree. Helen Keller
The place I feel most safe and secure is
with my husband, Grant.
When he puts his arms around me I
melt a little inside and relax.
I am home.
I am a long time Genesis fan and
the song, 'Follow You Follow Me'
kept on going round in my head when
working on this piece - so I used the
lyrics behind my hugging couple
(they're a hand cut mask).
Stay with me,
My love I hope you'll always be
Right here by my side if ever I need you
Oh my love
In your arms,
I feel so safe and so secure
Everyday is such a perfect day to spend
Alone with you
I will follow you will you follow me etc
Thank you for looking,
I'm off to rock some more Genesis!!
