as they say on Facebook, Suse is

: : wishing she hadn't feigned sleep in the hope that the mister would get up to the dog, as she knows full well who will actually clean up the vomit come morning

: : thankful that he did it on the brick floors this time

: : figuring that rustic has its benefits

: : ignoring the dog

: : feeling pleased that on her one day off she has thus far played WordTwist, emailed, read blogs, blogged at her readers, knitted, hung one load of (vomity) cloths and towels out and put another in the machine, blocked some socks and put a batch of quince muffins in the oven

: : tired when she looks at her list of things still to accomplish today

: : looking forward to watching a bunch of 14 year olds perform a Shakespearian play tonight, complete with her son kissing a girl at the end (behind a hat, apparently, so they don't have to touch because that would just be tooo embarrassing Mum)

: : eating crumpets with plum jam for lunch

: : listening to the Brandenburg Concertos

: : wondering if she's likely to ever blog in full sentences again

late winter

Stomper Girl said...

Ooh, lovely Daffs. When I did school plays they always made me kiss the boy FOR REAL. It was the only teenage action I was getting to be frank.

Gina said...

The joys of owning a dog! Lovely daffodil pictures.

I'm not sure you need full sentences. The bullet points are informative and succinct.

bluemountainsmary said...

I can't even start a blogging sentence let alone bullet points - so I think you are doing tremendously well.

The dog being sick is pretty trying though!

Martina said...

Martina is...enjoying the bullet form and the new banner.

At the age of 14 -- something sadly 30(!) years behind me -- had I been required to kiss the heroine, the concern I would have had would not have been whether it was embarrassing or how I could avoid contact but, rather, how far along the procedure I could go before the authorities set upon me with a crowbar and a water cannon.

My Terrible Cats do this kind of thing regularly. They often decide to add a poo in for good measure.

Shakespeare, Concertos and jam crumpets sound excellent and civilised.
My first kiss was on stage, (quel horreur!), and I wish I had used the hat idea. Would have saved me a world of mortification.

Badger said...

Full sentences are overrated. And your signs of spring make me hopeful that we will soon see signs of fall hereabouts.

tut-tut said...

Very lovely daffodils. How would they look knitted, I wonder??

loving the fragments

loving the Brandenburg Concertos

wanting crumpets with plum jam

herhimnbryn said...

Crumpets and Brandenburg? Crumpets and Brandenburg? Can I come to your house to stay?:)

MsCellania said...

Love the narcissus - a sure sign of spring. Which means autumn for us - YAY!

Your bullet points are great. And will suffice.

sentences are

::for those with too much time on their hands

::entirely over-rated

::unnecessary when fitting so much into a day

kisses are
::never embarrassing - get them while you can!

Isabelle said...

I think the hat idea is genius. A director who truly remembers the agonies of being 14. Unless you're Joker.

How can you have daffodils in late summer? (Yes, I know really. But it still seems very very odd.)

alice c said...

Does eating crumpets while listening to music count as multi-tasking?

joke said...

As a student at an all-boys school, my agonies were precisely the opposite.

It was those "understanding" directors that furthered the agonies, the bastids.

I'm not sure that I want to apply Pea soup to my affected area!!:)

Suse said...

Joke is clearly having a quiet day. Three comments on the one post ...

joke said...

Four. But it's an excellent post.

And yes, things are quiet.
