Thanks, could of warned me though, as the shock has made me go all Funny-er than normal... :o)
You're creative and can do both. You could paint some of your photos - they would look great. If you don't want to go over old ground, maybe you could write for a different kind of magazine? Create a writing website? Write some basic art instruction for hobbyists or kids? Do a blog or book about the magic little places you have found when walking. Write for a disability site/magazine/professionals about what it's like, and ways to overcome. Donate a percentage of your regular earnings to a good cause. Hand painted cards and calendars are popular - and can be wonderful works of art. Buy cheap sneakers and paint them with wild designs, then sell them. Try painting pottery or ceramics. Get into cooking - do a course of what you like and write a book or blog, with your own twist on recipes. Get into a tactile art form of some sort - with paper or carving soapstone or that fake concrete. Make chess sets with a difference. Write and illustrate a children's book.
WoW dezzie,,dear god woman mens brains dont work that fast, BUT, pottery, yes pottery, sculpture, thats what i,m gonna have a crack at next, i have done it before and enjoyed it so, i have a potters wheel here somewhere, just a table one but i,m gonna give it a whirl :O)
Good. I'll have a chess set, please.
Probably end up looking like penguins, do you like penguins, you'll be the only one with a penguin chess set, be a collectors set!!!
Hey Mikey, you could do the whole chess set as different kinds of penguins - emperor penguins for the queens, little rockhoppers for the pawns, and so on. Go on, go for it, it could be a winner!
Penguins it is!
Now,,,Where's me grey clay, its here somewhere,,,,,
Look under yer fingermanails. There's at least a pound ovit there. At least, I hope it's clay.
You is juss so rude to me, if you would like to know madam i is very hinegynic, so there.
Yerse, well, I s'pose you is. But it's them hands, mikey. They is letting the team down.
Spits a BIG dob on um rubs um together, Just look at the shine on them hands Dezzmerellda , nowt wrong with them hard working hands Mrs :O)
That's much betterer. But they woulda been perfeck if you'da wiped 'em on yer shirt. Still, carn' hexpeck you to rise to my high standards, I spose.
No, things are gunner change a bit from now on though Dezzie, due to the water being cut off, Told i dunner care, you canna turn the river off can ya, me only worries are its getting cold now for Ma to be doin the washing down the river and the 4 km walk back carryin the washing on her back aint doin her no good, i would help her but Jeremy Kyle is on the tv at that time and i cant miss that...
Well, she always was a bit of a whinger, wazzent she? You feed her, doncha?
On mundays she gets meals on wheels, on tuesdays she makes a nice broth, wensdays are a real treat as its sosage day, thersdays are left overs from wensday, frydays is me faverite fried egg,bacon,bloodpudding,sausage,fried bread, and twomatoes wot moor cud a man want or heven need, tell me that without smiling :O)
Oh, I'm definitely not smiling - not after Friday's menu. That's a grimace.
I am now a little worried aboutchoo, Mikey. Shoodent you have training wheels on that thing?
Grimace, ? iz that meen nice in Oztralian then, cuz your welcome to sum blood pudding if's you want sum, You iz one aboot me new bike aint you, just took the stablizers of it, clever aint i,,,look no hands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you want a hand up, then? I tole joo you would fall over, butchoo nevver listens, does you?
Never ever ever listen, thats my problum, never listen, always have to do things my way even if they iz the rong way, tell ya Dezzmerellda you never stop learning no matter how old you iz, I can remember my father saying to me Ma when i was a kid, Dont worry Glady's he'll grow out of that as he clipped me around the ear hole with a shoe....
I was the opposite. I always listened. I didn't always do the right thing, but when I was little, I fiercely obeyed most times. We won't talk about the other times. You might not admire me and stand in awe like you does now.
Mmmm, yeah,,, you'd make a good storey teller you would, very believable, well almost :O)
My granddaughters are the same. Naughty sometimes, but mostly trying to be good. If someone is with them and looking after them, they are only naughty when they get tired. Or when they try to take each other's life over a toy. "My sister isn't sharing with me!" is their favourite song. LOL
I can remember once when a neighbour offered me a lift home in his car. I told him I wasn't allowed to accept rides from anyone. I was all of eight years old. He was impressed, and told my parents.
Yeah i get very naughty when im tired too :O)
Well, sounds like you have always been a good gurl, I got picked up by the police when i was 5 years old, leaving home on a tricycle i was, one of those with a bred bin on the back, id done buttys and pop for me trip, Ma said i was always trying to run away,. looking back i must have been a real nightmare ..
Oh, I ran away when I was seven. My sister beat me within an inch of my life, and then my mother did the same. I'm not sure what the plan was, but a friend and I went together, and the cops spotted us. Well, it was a smallish town.
Kids do things because they're unhappy. So do adults, but no-one goes looking for them, much.
I've often thought I'd like to just leave my life and go away where no-one could find me, and start again. Unfortunately, I am now in love with my grandbabies, and there is no escape! LOL
