Looking on the bright side


George was sick at school yesterday so, after a 33 mile journey and typing one email, I got a phone call at work to go and collect him from school and take him home. Heck of a round trip for 10 minutes work! But hey, let's look on the bright side...

I had George home with me, snuggled up on the sofa in movie, iPod and Bionicle heaven.

I could ping the wheat bag for his sore tummy whenever required.

I got to eat lunch* with him on a Wednesday (only reserved for holidays usually).

I got lots of cuddles over the course of the day.

Thanks to having a laptop and connectivity to the company network, I got to work in the comfort of my own home, in my jeans, supping tea out of my fave mug.

No commute home after a day of work. I simply switched the laptop off and went downstairs to my boy.

This morning I got a lie in.

I'm eating a leisurely brekkie before commuting upstairs to my laptop.

George is feeling much better.

I get to type this mini post.

No dashing off at 4:50pm tonight to beat the traffic, to get to club in time to pick George up.

George doesn't have to go to club (big win in his book).

Oh, and I got to do a quick pedicure before starting work.

Can looking on the bright side help you today?

Have a good one!


*oh more sick but a voracious appetite and a sore tum.

Hey ho, at least he didn't vomit all day <- that s me looking on the bright side again! :)

Hello Monday

Good morning and happy new week!

Today started misty up North...I like mist, it adds an air of the magical to an otherwise ordinary day.

So the beds are stripped, the washer is on, breakfast has been had and George has been safely delivered to school. What's new for today then?

Well, I have decided to try and improve my skin and am using a new to me facial product...Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel. Lovely to apply and my skin felt smooth and clean afterwards - I'll let you know how I go on with it over time.

Then it was on to searching for a replacement for my usual spray sealant as I can no longer find a supplier for hoo. It looks like the local DIY store might be my best option!

And now? Now the audiobook is on and I'm about to gesso up some wooden dangly hearts ready for inking before taking Mum to the docs later on.

Not hugely exciting but this is my Ditsy Bird life :)


Have a good day

Mid week mani...

...and a smiley acorn!
I realise this is a bit late but hey, the polish is still going strong so I thought I'd post a pic.

Perfect crafty weather

It's a damp but lush Friday morning in our village today...perfect crafty weather! - It's too wet for a walk
- There isn't glorious sunshine to tempt me outside
- It's dark enough to light a candle, make a brew & toast a currant teacake.
- It's the kind of weather that makes you hunker down & take stock...or, in my case, get inking.

See, perfect crafty weather!

Happy Friday
