Thursday Journal with Neet

This weeks snarky comment is 'I'd love to talk but I'm in a hurry to get home so I can be alone' Jill had gone round to see her friend Angela who had just come back from a holiday in Greece. Angela couldn’t wait to tell Jill about her adventures and all the wonderful things she had brought back. She started off by explaining about all the historic ruins she had seen, and Jill was beginning to loose concentration. As much as she liked history and was really happy that her friend had had a lovely holiday, she had heard enough for one day. As Jill edged towards the door her brain was frantically trying to think of a way to stop the history lesson before the 'look what I brought back' started. Suddenly without thinking Jill said  "I'm so pleased you had such a lovely holiday Angela, and I'd love to talk but I'm in a hurry to get home so I can be alone" With that and a very puzzled look from Angela Jill walked out of the door. On her way home she started to think how she would explain her actions to Angela when they next met.

' I didn't see anyone today so I'm wearing this again tomorrow.' These are the words from Tim Holtz snarky comments for this week. Samantha, has been dreaming about going to Paris for years and at the weekend she will be on the way there with her boyfriend Paul. There was only three days to go and she had been sorting out her clothes and packing them carefully so they didn’t crease too much. When Samantha went away she always like to get the house clean and tidy and as far as possible most of the laundry done and put away. As she sat there thinking through everything she needed to take, and worrying about all the other things she had to do she realised that she hadn’t seen anyone all day. Her mother hadn’t been or phoned which was unusual and Paul was away with work, he would phone later for a chat. She was quite pleased in a way and her thoughts turned to thinking, I haven’t seen anyone today so I can wear this again tomorrow. This would cut the washing down a bit which Samantha was very pleased about.

 The words this week are 'Nothing screws up your Friday like realising it's only Tuesday' Gosh that sounds familiar, we never know what day it is. Annette has gone round to see her friend Margaret and immediately sits on the floor and starts telling Margaret all about the holiday she is going on next Saturday to Benidorm in Spain. Annette can't think of anywhere worse to go as she doesn't like crowds of people and commercial resorts. "Why don't you just go to Blackpool and save all that travel and money. Do you really prefer to see all those awful buildings along the beach and end up with loads of people getting drunk and being noisy ?" said Margaret " I like fun places and I am packed already" said Annette. "Why have you packed so early" asked Margaret. "Because I forget what day it was that's why, and nothing screws up your Friday like realising it's only Tuesday" said Annette. Margaret had even found two posters to illustrate how much nicer Blackpool looked, but Annette was not to be persuaded.

 The words this week are 'I try to be a nice person but sometimes my mouth doesn't cooperate' Susie and Delia are in Ireland for a weeks holiday and Susie is clutching a few brochures for Delia to look at.           " I would like to go to the coast it has a fabulous coastline, the scenery is wonderful" said Susie.                          "Well I would rather go to one of the big towns first and then the coastline this afternoon" said Delia. Wanting to keep the peace Susie agreed and then added " I hope we don't go near any fields today, as you look like a field with flowers in with that outfit, I won't be able to see you"                                                                                        "I'm dressed in green as it's Irelands colour and that was not a nice thing to say" said Delia                  Susie realising that she was being a bit mean said " I try to be a nice person but sometimes  my mouth doesn't cooperate.

Thursday Journal with Neet.

I am just home from a week in Norfolk with my son, youngest daughter and three grandchildren. I didn't have time to do it before we went so I am trying to catch up now. To link with Chris (Pearshape crafting) on Art Journal Journey with the theme of 'Where in the world'  A very short entry this week.

I have the twins, Joanne and Trudy in the duty free shop at the airport on the Isle of Capri. Trudy has told her sister that she is off to find a new perfume to impress her boyfriend, and Joanne is off to the liquor store. " you drink too much" said Trudy, "why don't you buy some perfume or clothes instead"  "Huh, why would I want to do that" said Joanne. "Nothing says I mean business like using cart at the liquor store" So they went their separate ways and met later in the departure lounge, Joanne weighed down with the weight of the bottles and Trudy with  a very small box that fitted easily into her handbag.
