Yes, I know it looks out of control and, in my opinion, also reflects the state of every room in the house at the moment; but I am in the process of sorting my stuff out. Stuff. I have far too much of it and it is beginning to get me down, all this managing of stuff. I was complaining to Anth the other day that I can't just put things away simply and quickly because each item has to be stacked or balanced or squeezed into a minute space. I noticed today that I have 9 sugar bowls. Yes 9. I know I like to rotate them, but 9 is a bit excessive don't you think? And I don't know quite how to break the latest news to you as I can hardly let myself think of it, but last night, 2 hours after washing them, lovingly drying them and then stacking my lovely tea cups like the picture on this post - I went and opened the cupboard and 2 fell out and smashed into pieces. Yes, my sweet pink lace one and my 2nd favourite. I'm not sure who to blame (as if that will really make any difference) but I am so upset as I think it is very unlikely that I will ever find another like it...oh why didn't I buy the other one that was with it when I had the chance...
But enough wallowing, let's talk about bird tins.
I now officially own a tin that is not predominately a floral one; and I'm still coming to terms with it. It has birds on it though and is very appealing seeing I don't have any in our garden. I got it from Utter Clutterin Leominster (which is worth a visit if you are near there). I haven't put anything in it yet and as my tin collection is actually worse than my sugar bowl collection, I think I will have to give some away so I can find a place for it.
Can you believe it's Friday again? Where does the time go. Thank you for all your comments this week - I loved reading your cheerful lists and have to agree with Lucy of the Antidote about Jack Bauer. The thought of Jack saving the world and the 3 new episodes of 24 to watch tonight is getting me through the boring stuff today. Oh and I have a new blog to tell you about - my friend Yvonne has started a blog and it's called Joharo at home - do pop over and say Hi. She is a such a creative, and talented lady.
Have a good weekend my friends.
