Thanks for popping in. And thank you for the love and support which has been pouring in, cushioning us Grays. God knows it has been needed. It’s difficult to know what to do. Sit and stare? I’m wearing Dad’s sweater. I like that. Being inside his clothes. Steve said he was wearing his slippers earlier; said they were precious. Grace was on the phone, then Mark called. It’s not just me; we’re all a bit rudderless.
Quote of the Day, Quote #10
Yeah, well, today was a growing day. You know how it is. Do things ever happen in your life, and you think, “if you watched this in a film, you’d say it was contrived, over the top?” I know, right?!
Some people never cease to baffle me, and generally speaking, I go to great lengths to avoid losers, deviants and badns. Thing is, at times like this, when your defence is low and you’re distracted, they slope in, climb in over the fence, try to take advantage of vulnerability. Right now, this week, I really have got other far more important things to think about, so it’s parked. But rest assured, situation duly noted. Consequences there will be. Am I growing through the bull? Yes, I sure am. Learning not to bite! And even when we could merrily inflict a deep wound with a blunt heavy object because we are so angry, we choose not to. I know I know, that kind of fury just isn’t good for the zen. And the other thing is, what goes round, comes round, right? Time wounds all heels? So maybe, rather than react at all, perhaps hit the pause button, and let things take care of themselves.
Changing the subject ( I can feel my blood pressure going up again), this weeks offering with 30% (plus Club Discount) is the brilliant Abstract Dandelion designed by our good friend Mel Turner.
I asked Jazz in the office to create a brand new 3 Way Overlay stamp using the design. I blimming LOVE this!!!
It is so brand new I have not had a chance to play with it yet. But maybe I will at the weekend. I think it looks superb in black! Positive AND Negative.

And you may say, how can she be thinking about this when her dad just died? Well, running a business is like that. And Paul is helping me a lot. x x x
Anyway, time to go switch off. Tomorrow will bring with it a whole other set of challenges I’m sure.
