My desk with work in progress…if you came by yesterday you will have seen the little pile of papers spread out drying, they are now waiting for the next stage!
The paints are still there because I need those colours again…so…what else to see? My overflowing jelly carton desk bin,script stamps,(also one of the few Stampotique stamps I own),two packs of gel pens - different makes,two little punches I bought on holiday. You will also see my favourite photo of my GD(the one she doesn't like!)other than that I would prefer that you do not look too long and hard at the chaos around!!
Hmm! Seven hours later….had to pop and lend someone a hand, then it was GD pick up time!
I am sure that by now there are many tales of dear Eliza, such a lovely lady whose comments always cheered! We remember Yoda when she first got him and followed his progress with cheers every time he made an appearance! I am sure the news affected us all and our thoughts will be with her family and of course DeDe. It was Eliza who requested that I get an e-mail link put on. At the beginning of this year she had a rare visit to the cinema (claimed she had sent her family into shock!)and I know she enjoyed my film reviews.
I thought there would be no more, but last Thursday Hubby and I, having found that our local Odeon has a 'Silver Screen' showing of recent films we decided to give it a try! For £3 pounds each we saw the film and had a free cup of coffee and a biscuit. There were eighteen people in, mostly over 60's (the 'Silver' part, he! he!)although the screenings are available for all ages.
We saw 'Still Alice' a tale about a woman who develops early onset Alzheimers disease. Not many laughs, but brilliant acting from Julienne Moore(she won best actress oscar) and the rest of the cast. A thought provoking film indeed!!
I do hope I get to visit lots of you this time but if I don't I shall leave you with some words of Eliza's wisdom - if I don't, I just have to "suck it up, like everyone else!" she said you would understand…and I know you will because Julia started this link of friendship and I think we do understand each other - it's why we're here!!
Tempus Fugit indeed!
Thanks for looking, Chris
