the difference between men and women

Recently, I lost my iron in the sewing room. It was so lost that – and I hesitate to admit this openly – I had to ask Dr B to come and help me look for it. Imagine! It was a salutary lesson, though. I was looking for the object. He was looking for ends of power cords. I wasn’t the one who found the iron.

how was it Monday so quickly?

Blue bows with glitter. Hot glue rules!

Blue bows with glitter. Hot glue rules!

Some wit has already pointed out that there are only a couple of sleeps left till Christmas 2016 🙂 I know it’s going to feel like that, but someone else suggested we should perhaps get Easter out of the way first. Gets my vote. Oh, and the 21st and the 90th and the 60th and the 30th birthdays, too. Please?

I returned to work on Monday and, although it’s often the case that I’m not entirely enthusiastic about the idea of holidays finishing, I was really not ready this year. A friend commented recently that I’m looking good. He meant rested, I imagine, because that’s one benefit of holidays, even if you’re without a car. Actually, probably all the more if you’re without a car because, unless it’s screamingly urgent (or there’s a fabulous plant involved), you don’t want to get on a bus any sooner than you have to; so you don’t leave the house much at all.

Work? Well, yeah, essential for continued wellbeing of family unit and maintaining of roof over heads but, you know? Sometimes life is more a place where some hot-glued bows with glitter on them are the only answer 🙂

2015 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,000 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 50 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

It seems I had a fairly quiet year in all respects, not merely with regard to my creative output.

If you were one of my frequent visitors or commenters, thank you. I truly appreciate it. Any comments to which I haven’t responded, well, I hate to sound like a broken record, but technology defeated me early in the year. For example, I notice I didn’t post at all in February.

Whatever the reason, I’ll be making a big effort to do better this year. I hope your own stats were equally as fascinating?

And a very big Happy New Year to everyone 🙂
