Hello my friends. Here we are again, peeking at one another’s desks – mine this week is exceedingly boring. It’s completely empty… and when I say Completely Empty…
Well, I did warn you! The reason being I’m having a velux window fitted just above my workspace. the roof this side of the house faces North East, so ideal light for crafting, and the guys want to come do it before the weather breaks – hope they are in time!
But, you know me. Can’t bear to be totally idle, and most definitely am certifiable… so, when a friend asked me last Thursday if I had ever dressed a duck… It appears the local hospice, for which we at church are extremely thankful, are running a duck race as part of their open day this coming Saturday. Local companies have been asked if they would like to buy a duck – with a prize for the best dressed!! There were the usual thoughts about orange sauce… but when I sat down and stared at this huge plastic duck (about 15 inches lond and nearly 12 inches high!), well, I decided it was most definitely female. What’s more, the company to be represented by this particular duck is Food For Thought Conwy – a fairtrade cake company established here in Llandudno on the Great Orme. So what was more appropriate than to make my duck into Mrs Bun the Baker’s wife – those of a similar age will remember her from the card game Happy Families!
So, here she is, ready to race. I’m hoping the owners of the company will lower her wings a little before they allow her in the river Conwy!
And, erm… yes, that IS a knitted cupcake on her head!
So that’s me this week folks. Hope I have brightened your day with hilarity. The men in white coats will most definitely be around as soon as this goes live…
Thank you to everyone who visited and left comments last week – and for your sympathy and prayers following Marian’s death. I appreciated them. They mean a lot. I think I managed to visit everyone last week – and leave comments for everyone except Kathryn. I hope I have now realised how to visit and comment.
Take care everyone. God bless.
