Thank you all so much for your lovely and thoughtful comments on yesterday's post. Just saying how I was feeling has made me feel a lot better and your kind comments helped even more.
When you look around you can often see lots of other things that help take the "uns" away.
Like going for an evening walk through the new deep snow with the rest of the Lockets and watching heart-in-mouth as they slide down a steep bank in the park that has been so well used during the day that it has become compacted ice - and brilliantly slippy
then treating everyone to fish and chips from the new Chippy in the village, spotting this amazing snowman on the way home
then coming in to a roaring coal fire and watching the original Dr Dolittle on DVD.
My knitting didn't work, nor did the necklace I made this afternoon and we're no longer predicted to get the heavy snowfall that was forecast so it looks like we'll be at work and school as normal tomorrow, but I did discover that a (very) few of you shared my happiness at neatly fitting tin contents so I thought I'd amuse myself by showing you my most satisfactory storage solution:
this tin -
which contains my gadgets and gizmos for putting in press-studs
can you see how well the handles of the gadget fit round the teeny tiny box that holds the gizmos that insert the doofahs?
And the flat tins (which used to contain charm squares and a CD pattern) now hold all the doofahs that you use with the gadget and gizmos.
And it all just fits perfectly.............................
Aaaaaaaaaaaaah! How I love using this tin!
How I love knowing that everything I need is just there and easy to find.
How I must need therapy.
So moving swiftly on, why don't you have a look at a blog written by a much saner member of the family?
Go on! She'll be ever so pleased if you do..........
