As the sun was shining this morning, I thought what the heck, and put a load of stuff outside my little terrace to sell, thinking it might just cheer people up as they went past, it cost me nothing, and I don't have to sit next to it all day! I haven't sold anything as yet, but I'm not bothered, however two young boys came to have a look, I could hear the conversation from inside as one said to the other "doesn't your mum need some dish cloths? - they are very good ones!"
Yesterday I spent the whole afternoon teaching an African Drum class to the Blackburn Peoples choir, it was just so uplifting for me! I don't teach many classes these days (this is not my day job...) most of the workshops I do with the drums are drum circles with children and are fast noisy and frantic, yesterday was just what I love doing, back to where I started over 15 years ago with real west African Patterns...
The group picked it up really quickly, and before you know it, we were making sweet music! what a total buzz. I only got chance to take 2 photo's - here people are choosing the drum they want to play.
When I got home Mr Fig had been busy creating a pie. He said this was the only time he would probably ever make one of these, a Wheat, dairy, gluten free hot water raised game pie, with venison, rabbit and pigeon in it - 3 days in the making - but very tasty!
I was also given this wonderful award, TWICE! wow - well as you can imagine in my current state, this threw me into floods of tears! Thanks to Twiggy and Taz for this!
So now I need to send on the love to 10 bloggers...
one each for;
K C's Court
Kids and Capers
Ruby's Button Tin
ok, I didn't get to 10...
To be honest, I would also have chosen the people who chose me!
You all give me so much inspiration, and all of you make me smile!
Thanks for that...
