I have finished my attic 24 bag but I am going to try and felt it slightly as it has turned out rather large. Will take a before and after shot!!
I am having a very small tidy and sort out and found these words that I read at my Grandma's funeral. Sorry isn't meant as a glum post but just though I would share these words.
I will also take some photo's of my brand new 'thrift' patio. It is amazing and I did nothing (apart from lay a few bricks. My very good friend Rob did most of the work. (well all of it actually! and even found the bricks) My little cottage is really starting to feel like it is coming together and that is is finally mine. (and since Daz is in the front garden I have stopped thinking that moving would be the answer to the glumness that sometimes smothers me) I have so much to thank him for, he puts up with me changing my mind about things, being grumpy, has taught me how to do so many DIY things, found me DVD players, CD players, Sky dish etc etc at boot sales. A friend like that is totally priceless and I really hope he knows how much I appreciate all his help, even if sometimes it seems like I don't. I couldn't have got through these last two and a half years with out his help and support.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Take care.
If you stand very still in the heart of a wood
You will hear many wonderful things,
The snap of a twig and the wind in the trees
And the whir of invisible wings
If you stand very still in the turmoil of life
And you wait for the voice from within,
You'll be led down the quiet ways of wisdom and peace
In the chaos of sorrow and sin.
If you stand very still and you hold to your faith
You will get all the help that you ask.
You will draw from the silence the things that you need:
Hope and courage, and strength for your task. (but maybe not the grand tidy up that Poppy Cottage needs!!) x
