  1. That picture reminds me of the sensational video clip Britain made for its Paralympians going to Rio. Every person in the clip is disabled in some way. The fellow singing is from Australia.

    • Well I started my day listening to our little diddy and once again cracked up laughing…so it started off great! Then we had snow followed by freezing rain for my ride home…so that was very stressful and I was so relieved once I arrived home…tonight I’ve been chilling. How are you my lovely lady? xo

    • Glad it started well and glad you got home safely too with that cold weather. Sounds brutal. I’m good thanks Deb. Been decluttering and culling in my kitchen today, in a big way. I didn’t get the call about those Ed tickets last night but no matter hey, I’m going anyway! Woo hoo. Happy chilling my lovely friend xo

    • I’ll be glad when it’s over!! Hmmm decluttering huh, that usually starts with one thing and before you know you’ve got your hands full!!! Was last night when they were calling the winner? Something is still going to happen I just know it…like maybe that person can’t go so you’re the runner up or when you get there Ed’s going to sing to you, or pull you up on stage to either dance or do a duet with him…it’s going to be fantastic!! Thanks…I was so tense all the way home my neck was killing me from the strain. It was dark and raining and cars would go by and splash snow and freezing rain across my windshield so I couldn’t see temporarily. You should have seen my car when I got home, it was covered with frozen rain…looked like a great big ice cube! Freezing rain is the worst! Have a lovely Thursday, enjoy your decluttering and culling…what is culling? xo

    • Culling is similar to decluttering, except it’s choosing what to keep. And yeah, it’s kind of snow balling but I’m enjoying it. I’ve already donated a big box of kitchen ware to the local charity shop. It continues but I’m having a break now.
      Oh Deb, your drive home sounds horrendous. No wonder you had a sore neck from all that stress. If I could I’d offer to give you a gentle neck rub to sooth those muscles. I’m pretty good at it! Hopefully by now and with a good show and ice cream fix you’re feeling more relaxed.
      Ooh, I’d love it if Ed pulled me up on stage. The competition’s going all week, every night, but you have to enter separately every time. Maybe I’ll enter again, we’ll see. Anyway you take care. Sounds like Mr T might be making an appearance tomorrow. I have no idea what to expect, but knowing Rob it could be anything. 😏 Big warm hugs xo

    • It’s funny how much stuff we accumulate and feel that we need when we buy and then later we no longer need it anymore…glad you are able to donate it for someone else to enjoy and then one day they will declutter and donate to another person to enjoy….and on and on it goes!
      Yeah I really just felt like bein quiet last night, boy that neck rub sounds wonderful and sure would have been appreciated, thanks for offering!!
      Wouldn’t that just be so thrilling…it reminds me of when Bruce Springsteen pulled Courteney Cox on stage before she was famous. Do you remember that? Big warm hugs to you my lovely xo

    • Yes, I think I do remember that. I’ve had the most crazy busy morning. I had to go to the dentist to get two fillings (I said I couldn’t afford the crowns so I just got fillings). Anyway while I was in the dentists chair I got a brain wave for my next post Tour Guide. So on the way home I stopped in to all these different shops in my little town and got photos and spoke to business owners and even met a mechanic who’s a musician. It’s taken me two hours to get home!! My brain is spinning with everything I want to write. Big hugs lovely you xo 😊

    • Oh don’t you hate it when that happens…having to find a new hairdresser can be hard…let’s put your thinking your dreams true to work here…imagine what you want your new hairdresser to be like…write it down. List things like, she does my hair quickly but thoroughly, she is very skilled, she cuts hair beautifully, she gets my style, she very nice, fun to be around, pleasant to talk to, affordable, nearby, convenient hours…stuff like that. Then re-read it every day for a week or two you can add to the list, modify or change something it you like…and don’t start looking for a new one until after you have done this…then see what happens. You might hear about one either by passing it, word of mouth, the radio or newspaper and it’s going to click with you and you’re going to feel drawn to it and to check it out…do so. This will be a fun test. 🙂
