Thursday Journal with Neet.

' I'm sorry I called you an idiot, I thought you already knew' These are the words this week and Ellie was talking to her friend Mary, who she had recently called an idiot.  Mary was very keen on nature and was a really soft touch when it came to rescuing ill wild life creatures. Ellie was so different and would just take them to the vet, although she did her best to not see injured animals in the first place, as she didn't like touching feathers or fur. She had never had a pet and didn't want one, pretending she was allergic to them. Mary knew differently and her latest rescue was a tiny bird that had fallen out of a nest. The thing about this one was that she had no idea what type it was, and it just grew and grew. The other problem was that it followed her about like a little dog, although she had tried to discourage it. Mary had called it Pickles and it would insist on going to see Ellie with her. "Come on Pickles" she said "lets go and say hello to Ellie" Ellie had seen them coming, and as soon as Mary was near her she said" I'm sorry I called you an idiot, I thought you already knew" I am linking this to Art Journal Journey where Matilde's theme is Birds.

Thursday Journal with Neet

 I'm not trouble, just a challenge. These are the words this week and Gina has just gone into her brothers bedroom to make sure he had tidied it up before their mum came home for work. Gina didn't like school holidays as she ended up looking after Freddie. This was not an easy job as she found out when she went into his room. Why their mum had allowed Freddie to choose his own wallpaper she couldn't understand, it was awful, who would want spiders webs all over the wall. At least he hadn't added any spiders to it, or anything else come to think about it, mind you there was still time. What the little horror had done was scribble all over the final floor covering. It was a good idea not to give him a carpet in there, but who gave hime the indelible black marker. Was there something she could get it off with before their mum came home, Gina had a horrible feeling that there wasn't. She gave Freddie a real good telling of and all he could say was "I'm not trouble, just a challenge"    I am linking this to Art Journal Journey where the theme set by Matilde from  http://craftowanie.blogspot.com is birds.

Thursday Journal with Neet

 The words this week are 'there's not enough hours in the day to do all the stuff I'm not doing to do'            I have quite a long list that would fit into that category. This was a difficult one to link in with Alison's theme on Art Journal Journey which is Play it again Sam, where we illustrate a favourite song or film. This week the only thing I could think of that fits our quote is a song by an Australian called Inxs with a song titled Not enough time, but to be honest I had to look it up as nothing else seemed to fit. I hope it's OK with Alison.                                                                                                                                         Sonia was in her lounge, talking to her dog Scamp, just as she does when there is no-one else around. She had made a list of the jobs she needed to do around the flat before her mum came for her monthly check up, where she made sure Sonia was doing all the jobs properly. Doing a bit of a tidy up was OK, dusting as long as she didn't have to dust all the ornaments and putting all her clothes away was just about OK. If she started now she would just have time to achieve those jobs. Now all the ones Sonia wasn't going to do included, cleaning the oven, washing the windows, mending some clothes, weeding her little garden and vacuuming. Luckily her vacuum had broken a few days ago so that was the only legitimate excuse she had for not doing things. Sonia decided to leave those jobs on the list as she never knew when the urge to do one or two of the jobs might happen, you never know her mum might feel sorry for her and do them when Sonia was at work. With that hopeful thought in mind, Sonia decided to get a nice lunch ready for her mum as well.

Thursday Journal with Neet.

 The older I get, the more I see the error of my ways, but the less I care, these are the words this week. As soon as I saw this I thought of Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in 'The bucket list" where they made a list of all the things they waned to do or see before they died.                                                             Geraldine has just done the opposite and has made a list of all the things that she has done wrong and all the people she has annoyed. But as she was telling her cat Lucy, I know I shouldn't have annoyed my parents by dropping out of university, but I really didn't like it and I was going into debt instead of earning money. How was I supposed to feed myself and you on nothing. I also upset my best friend by going out with her boyfriend, what was wrong with that, she was going to finish with him anyway. I was also annoyed with the local shop who refused to stock your favourite cat food, and I now have to go to the other end of town for it. But at the end of the day those and all my other errors really don't bother me, I'm getting too old and set in my ways to let it bother me. Her cat meowed in agreement, well she thought she did.

Tag Tuesday - Blue and green

 My two favourite colours Blue and green, are the theme Valerie has chosen for Tag Tuesday. Here is my second one. This one has a lot of texture, even more than the last one.
