Thursday Journal with Neet.

 Another rushed one done the night before and this time with Tim Holtz snarky words of 'If it requires pants or a bra, it's not happening today' Not an easy one this week. It's New Years Eve and Janet and her friend Grace are going to a fancy dress party in the evening. Grace hadn't a clue what to go as and asked Janet if she could help out with an idea or two. Janet was really into films and loved some of the older type films and suggested Grace go for someone like Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn. Grace like modern films and the only thing she could think of and not letting Janet and her ideas down she said " If it requires pants and a bra, it's not going to happen today" Janet didn't really understand, but then realised that it didn't look as if Grace had a bra on today and was wearing clothes not suited to the snowy weather they were having. The boots would be ok for the snow but not the skimpy outfit Grace was wearing, she didn't like to inquire if Grace had pants on under those shorts. Not being able to think of someone who could fit that requirement and not be embarrassed to be seen with, Janet gave up and told Grace she would have to think of something herself.

Thursday Journal with Neet

The snarky comment this week is a ‘ I may be wrong, but I doubt it’  A bit last minute this week, I don't know where the time goes. I have used a snowy scene through the window so I can link this the Jo's theme of Snowy Winter on Art Journal Journey. Meg and her little sister Jane have just finished decorating the artificial Christmas tree and are trying their best not to look at the presents under the tree to see who they are from and try to guess what they are.  Not that I ever did that of course, Oh actually I still do. Meg doesn't believe in Father Christmas anymore and can't believe that Jane still does. They were in a deep conversation about presents and what they hoped to get. Jane wanted a new bike and was a bit concerned that it wouldn't go down the chimney in Santas sack. Meg said, "well as it's mum and dad that buy all the presents I wouldn't worry about it" Suddenly realising what she had said and before Jane started crying she tried to explain that as Santa is so busy he had to ask some of the parents to deliver them for him, especially the larger ones. Hoping that that would satisfy Jane who was looking very dubious. Meg said "I may be wrong, but I doubt it" The last bit under her breath, with a louder bit for Jane which was "but I don't think so, Santa will be really busy this year.

Have a lovely Christmas and a happy, healthy 2023 xx

 Janet was doing her sister who had just been widowed a big favour. This consisted of looking after Alfie her sisters little boy. More of a little monster as far as Janet was concerned, and she was having trouble finding very much she liked about him. He was an only child, spoilt and used to getting his own way. Janet was relieved she only had him on the occasional weekend. This Saturday the snow was on the ground and it was a clear bright day, so Janet thought Alfie might like to play outside in the snow, but no, he wanted to stay inside and watch cartoons on the television. She took all their outdoor clothes off and hung them up in the cloakroom, and made herself a cup of tea. No sooner had that been achieved when Alfie changed his mind and wanted to make some snowballs. On go the outdoor clothes again and out they go. Janet didn't like the cold, but was willing to put up with it if it kept Alfie occupied for more than five minutes. Five minutes after complaining of cold feet and hands Alfie wanted to go in again and Janets patience was wearing thin. She loved the sun and the warm weather and said to no one in particular " I need a six month vacation, twice a year" That would get her out of looking after Alfie, but it was all a pipe dream. She had to work and couldn't afford to live abroad for months on end, but it was nice to dream.

Michele is hosting on Tag Tuesday with the theme of Winter Holidays. My tag has a distress inked background and a stamped image of Santa. The holly is stamped and embossed and artificial pine and flowers added. There are some bells to jingle as well.

Thursday Journal with Neet.

 The snarky words from Tim Holtz today are 'I survived another meeting that should have been an email' That sounds familiar to me, as I have sat through many meetings that could have been dealt with in a few sentences on an email. Corrine has been at such a meeting and had arranged to meet Angela and Mary to go into town for some late Christmas shopping. She hadn't been able to message them as they were not allowed to use their mobile phones whilst the meeting was in progress. She had however let them know she would be late as soon as she got out of the room. Angela and Mary were waiting in their usual place just on the edge of their town where they could catch the bus there for the city shopping centre. It had begun to snow and they were looking at the snow covered hills and slowly freezing to the spot. By the time Corrine arrived the two girls were ready to have a real grumble at her, even though they knew it was not her fault. Before they could utter one Corrine quickly said " I survived another meeting that should have been an email" There wasn't a lot they could say, so quietly waited for the bus, hoping the snow wouldn't get any worse.

Not wanting to get up too early to see what the new theme was on Art Journal Journey I am now having to do a quick re-hash on the background I had already done. The words this week are ' SHHHHHH no one cares' Carol was having a problem with Mason her naughty son. He had been moaning the whole morning about going out to play in the snow. Mason has a really bad cold and should be in school, but couldn't see the problem in going out to play in the snow. After all he wouldn't be in contact with any of his pals. His mum was being really mean and he wasn't going give up yet. Carol was trying to explain to Mason that going out and getting cold was not a good idea when you had a bad cold. Mason was getting bored and told his mum that she sounded just like his grandma and he was going to tell all his friends and teachers that she was really mean. Carol was getting mad and told him to Shhhh, no one cares, and I think they would be on my side especially your dad and Grandparents.
