I wake up in the morning( and its still dark) and wonder what the day will bring. Every so often you hear a story. Someone offers advice or a client shows you a piece that they have been working on for years and you know it will evoke memories further down the track when I am old and grey, actually cut the grey cause I am already there. I am middle aged but not old, in fact scrub that sentence and replace it with "when I retire". My husband will have to drag me out screaming, as it is a huge part of my life and I do enjoy coming to my little piece of paradise everyday.
This is one of the stories that I no doubt will be telling in years to come because it just gave me the warm fuzzies I had a couple of delightful customers in the shop on Wednesday, an elderly lady who was wheelchair bound but had a quick wit and a great sense of humour. Her friend or carer that was with her proudly announced that her friend was a great grandmother and was crocheting a blanket for her grandaughter. We chose some bright coloured wool that will look gorgeous. This little possum will be wrapped up with warmth and love for many years to come, long after grandma has gone.
You can not beat Hand Made With Love.
The great grandmother told me several funny stories on her visit but one story in particular will evoke great memories for me in years to come, particularly when I see a picture of Nemo!
When her 2 or 3 year old granddaughter was told by her mum that great grandma was not very well, her great granddaughter said to her mum that grandma has to swim mum, just like Nemo keep swimming, just keep swimming.
I opened the door for them on the way out and the friend decided to go out backwards just in case she tipped her friend out of the wheelcahir - to that their was a wicked reply that just made me laugh and as they wheeled their way up the street I wished them well and yelled Keep Swimming!
