The words this week are 'I wish more people were fluent in silence' Ingrid was known for saying the first thing that came into her head and today was no exception. The two girls had just come back from a school reunion, which Anna had really enjoyed. She had met up with some of her old friends and had a good catch up on old times. They hadn't been to a reunion before and didn't know if they really wanted to go, as they hadn't kept in touch with any of them. They managed to get round to most of them, carefully avoided any that might be a problem. Ingrid was in full moan mode and Anna left her to it. Anna was going round to find out what careers her old friends had decided on and had they got married, had children, and where they lived now. Anna was really enjoying herself and wished she had gone to more of the reunions. Ingrid on the other hand was grumbling about everything, as were some of the others. When Suzanne and Ingrid finally left and went for a coffee they discussed the evening at the reunion. Anna loved it and said so. Ingrid wished she had never gone and hardly had a good word to say about any of the girls. After listening to Suzanne going on for about half an hour Anna had had enough and said "I wish more people were fluent in silence" Anna doubted whether Suzanne realised that it was aimed at her.

A great theme on Tag Tuesday, set by our team mate Pinky. I have used a lot of bits from my scrap basket which never seems to get any smaller. They are all collaged onto the tag and I have added a face I drew while ago. I have just come back from three days in Cornwall, and the traffic on the way home was awful, it took me six hours, so this was done after I had settled down. I am off to Pembrokeshire for a week on Saturday so wanted to get this done before I went there. I will be pleased to stop wandering around the UK and get back to normal. !!!!
I am in Cornwall for a few days so had to this and the next one in advance ( I will be in Pembrokeshire for that one) The words this week are 'It's a beautiful day to leave me alone' and is another one of Tim Holtz snarky sayings. Suzanne has gone for a walk with her dog and her friend Diane and is all dressed up as if she is going to town or somewhere posh. Diane has just dressed for a walk as it was a lovely day, and a walk in the country was just what she needed. She had had a really stressful week at work and needed the fresh air and some exercise to make her relax. She couldn't understand why Suzanne was in long sleeves with a huge handbag and big clumpy boots, as well as a matching hat of course. She couldn't resist mentioning it all too Suzanne, even though she knew she had a rather silly hat on herself. Suzanne immediately retaliated with "It's a beautiful day to leave me alone" Diane turned her back on her and walked home.

We are starting a new set of sayings today, found by Neet. They are snarky comments from Tim Holtz. The first one is 'I am fabulous' Suzanne has just had a row with her boyfriend who seems to be getting really fed up with her putting all her pets first and letting him down. It's "I have to take the cat to the vet, I have to go to town to get the dog a coat for the Winter, the bird cage needs cleaning out, the dog has to be walked every day" and so it goes on. He has had enough, he likes animals but doesn't want to have his life ruled by them. He had gone round to see her to see if she fancied going on a holiday to Cyprus. All he got from that was " I can't possibly leave all my animals and there's no one I can trust to look after them properly" Tom said to her as he's was leaving the room "you'll be lucky to find any one with an attitude like that" Suzanne just turned her back on him and said, no problem, I am fabulous.

' I used to drink, but that was hours ago ' are the words this week. Zoe was having a break from doing absolutely nothing when her friend Hazel popped round for a chat, well mainly to tell Zoe about her latest boy friend. Zoe didn't really want to know and was doing her very best to look interested. Her eyes kept trying to close and she was having trouble keeping upright on the bean bag. Of course Hazel had noticed Zoe was a bit wobbly and accused her of being a bit drunk. Even Zoe's dog was keeping an eye on her in case she fell on him. I am not drunk Zoe said. "I used to drink, but that was hours ago" Zoe did think Hazel was being a bit mean, and" how many people go around with a bird on their head" she said to Hazel. Zoe didn't think her boyfriend would be around long if that's what she did.

I love roses and have some lovely ones in my garden, so have chosen them as my theme on Tag Tuesday for the next two weeks. The first ones is a collage with a trellis and 3D roses, the second one is a collage with stamped stylised roses and three 3D ones. The third is a picture of some roses I painted, with a magazine picture and stamped images at the bottom.

The words this week are ' I thought I couldn't love you less - you proved me wrong' Angela has been looking after her nephew Malcolm while her sister is in hospital having a little sister for Malcolm. He is not pleased and has been naughty ever since his dad dropped him off. First of all he didn't want a silly sister, he wanted a brother his age that he could play with. Angela had tried to explain to him that they were very small at first and took a few years before she could play with him. In that case, as far as he was concerned she could cancel the baby and get one that was a bit bigger and could play with him straight away. Angela was beginning to loose patience with him, and he was getting more devious and naughty by the minute. Even when he was small and she looked after him, he would empty the cupboards that he could reach, often breaking things that fell out. This time he had really made her angry as he had gone next door and let out their pet bird, no doubt with the help of Angela's cat who was looking very guilty. Now he was just looking for things to do wrong and Angela wondered if it might help if she took him to the hospital and showed him his sister Elsbeth. Looking him she decided to wait a while and see if she could find something else to distract him with.
Neet is hosting Art Journal Journey this month and as I didn't know what Neet was going to choose for her theme, I had to leave the theme out of this page until this morning. Luckily my story fitted the bill with the addition of a bird and a cat, and an extra story to put with the original one.
