Sunflowers, Crazy Daisy & DVDs

Yesterday afternoon, I was feeling rather miserable with this damn head cold, when my sister arrived with my little neice, G (yes, she of the tree climbing drama).

"Look what I got you," shouted G as she made her way carefully around a bouncing, yapping miniature schnauzer.

As luck would have it, R had just arrived home with a Crazy Daisy for G and her brother, and she was delighted to be given the water squirting flower.

I love flowers and particularly adore Sunflowers. They cheered me up so much that as soon as they'd left I went to the shed and increased my wip by 1,185 words.

Today, the postman bought me my copy of Lost in Austen. Unfortunately, R got to the letterbox before me and when I ripped the envelope open and he saw the DVD inside, he said, "You've taped every episode, why do you need the DVD too?"

Honestly, what a question?

Debs, Glad you stopped by for a peak. I love your shed! I used to have one, it was MY space for journal writing, my drawings, creative juices could go wild. I miss having that space.
