Eel plurt bow coo oh jaw dwee!

Hi there!

Thanks for dropping in. It’s been tipping down here in the southeast ! Stair rods, cats n dogs. I set off for work really early this morning, and it was fine. Dark, but dry. Then about 10 minutes into the drive, it came down out of nowhere – like a torrent. Couldn’t see the road for rain. Proper flash flood. The last time I experienced rain like that was in Atlantic City on the east coast of the USA years ago. I had never seen a flash flood before, when the heavens open and the streets are rivers within minutes, so it stayed with me. Wottalottarain! Eel plurt bow coo oh jaw dwee! You sure wouldn’t want to be homeless in this weather. Poor poor people.

So let’s have a little blog candy to cheer us up, a limerick competition!

I’ll give you the first two lines of the limerick. Then you copy said lines below and add the rest, Okay? We’ll pick a goodn to win a £20 gift voucher!

Ready?

There once was a girl called Elaine, 
Who went for a walk in the rain...

Speaking of competitions, I almost forgot the Tree card! You were going to add the word below, remember?

Well, silly me took the card into work, so that Jeannine could send out the Gift voucher asap, but I forgot to take a photo the reveal beforehand! But no matter. A lucky winner has been picked. A random winner. Ironically, when I scrolled down with my eyes closed, the cursor landed on the actual word which is on the card!!! How strange….

So dear Trintkje, you guessed FRIENDSHIP – and that was actually correct!!

It’s a beautiful piece you have made Barbara.
I think the word will be — FRIENDSHIP
Stay save and healthy!!
Trijntje Huppel

The card and the gift voucher are on their way to you, dear lady. Thanks to everybody who posted positive, uplifting, lovely words. There’s a great energy that comes with positive positive like that, don’t you find?

Stay safe, warm AND DRY.

Love always

    but oh what a sight.
    Not dressed his usual way,
    Pat‘s Speedos and wellies gave her quite a fright.

    and with one last look,
    To her craftroom she did go.
    With a smile on her face she crafted away,
    not even stopping to cook.
