I should have something intelligent, profound and worthwhile to say, not just be fooling around with the bendy light playing at shadows.
Erm . . . let me see, let me see . . .
Well yes. Three things that I liked today and I think you will too.
In Silverhill (the part of our town where our house is), next to the butcher's just by the bus stop is a shop that sells toy trains and cars and models.
Last time I went in there, so far as I remember, was when my children were about 8, 7, 5 and 2, at a rough guess. That would be about 24 years ago. I went in to buy models of Athos, Porthos, Aramis, Dogtanian and Juliette.
Today I went in for a Carnosaurus model for the Wretched Wretch. It's the same man who runs the shop, only difference is his hair is grey now, not black.
"Hello!" he said. "You haven't been in for a while!"
:0) Don't you just love that?
Another nice thing happened today. I found out about Mudlove. I sent for a bracelet that says "be the change" (an excellent one for a crone like me, I thought), and a necklace that says "peace" - a good one to wear over the voicebox.
Why I especially love them is I can't wear metal because I am too electromagnetic. Any metal necklace round my wrists or neck is unbearable. When Alice was a little girl, I had to stop giving her a kiss when she set off for school in the mornings, because we gave each other electric shocks every time.
But these are made of mud and string, which is about my level really.
The third thing that made me happy today was the place I found out about Mudlove, which was here. I felt worried about the little boys' Christmas faces - they looked like they were being a bit brave and would have preferred guinea-pigs over textiles. But I loved the cheerfulness, sweetness and creativity; the ingenuity and the love and care. Nice family.
Other than that . . . er . . . it has snowed. That's all.
I'm off to watch Ripper Street on iPlayer now.
