a lazy morning surprise

2 October 2010

after a supremely busy week and lots of missed sleep, it is so nice to wake up and think 'today, I'm going to do nothing!'. Actually it is just after 1pm and still I have not had a bath, {although I have just been to the post office, but that is just 50 yards from our flat}.
Nao looked very serene this morning, moving his chair to the doors to gain maximum sun without actually going into the garden.

Plimsoll however was busting some moves on the bed, getting to all those hard to reach places, I think she should go for 2012 Olympic gymnastics. She's good at walking on fences and doing backflips too.

Anyway, I digress. This morning I had the delight of opening this fabulous parcel! In fact, I received it last night, but I wanted to take photos before opening it, so i needed some light. Just look at this guy!! It's hysterical, that shirt is called 'Mr. Big' for 'the king size man' I'm guessing this is from America!

In fact this is from my lovely blog friend in Holland, who's recently been to her friends wedding, all the way to Reno. I loved her photos she took there.
I'm quite in awe of this wrapping paper too, it looks like vintage wallpaper, can you imagine a nice big room with dusty wood floors, this wallpaper and an old wonky desk and chair by a window {Can you tell I am dreaming of buying our first place, oh one day I hope}.

JR Ewing? so they do really exist! Just look at that blouse, my cat has a similar look actually.

can it get any better than that? OH YES...look at this amazing photo, I love the fact that there are massive hard working horses next to the {relatively speaking} modern car, I wonder what them horses are thinking?

and look look look! a little pressie inside, how beautiful! This little square has sparked of some creative chemicals in my brain. Time to get my loom out and start weaving with bits of recycled jersey. I love the colours in this, when you look at it close up, its just like a painting. It is also very tactile, so i think this technique would also be great for a little rug or a bag maybe?

In real life, im not very good at finding friends that are like minded, or even ones that aren't! I guess Im just too lazy and maybe a bit shy at socializing with people I don't know.
This is a major fault of mine. However, I think that Blogland is my life line, I get best of both worlds...getting to know people who seem to know me better than anyone in real life and I don't even have to leave home, in fact even think of what to wear and how I'm going to get back afterwards or anything to interrupt my lazy weekend...yet I can still see what they are up to, or send a message, or see a photo of what they are making/baking or finding!

So a little pressie means so much when it is from someone who I've never met, yet it is so absolutely perfectly me...and even gets me squealing like a pig when I spy it by the front door.
So a big thank you blogger friend! I damn well like your style!

on with the lazy routine,...a lazy breakfast!

she always has to check that here is no 'Sheba finest cuts of tuna with prawn', in my fruit.

By the way, please don't think I'm some healthy naturelle goddess or any such nonsense, I've got a large box of 'Triple Belgian chocolate chip biscuits' for later. Happy weekend bloggians!
