Look, I don’t want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you’re alive you’ve got to flap your arms and legs, you’ve got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at very least think noisy and colorfully, or you’re not alive – Mel Brooks

I know the title is too long for Twitter but those with curiosity will have clicked on the link!

This morning I was in the courtyard cleaning the hen house and having been up early writing I was happily in my pj’s and dressing gown and yes, it is pink. We live in an unusual set-up tucked away in an old caretakers house on the edge of a business site and this morning was bin collection morning. Down the side of our home is a walkway through to a prep school and I saw an old acquanitance of mine on the school run and we had a quick catch-up and yes she was beautifully turned out this morning. Her face completely closed off when I said that part of my daily round now involved psychic work and I, being used to this, carried on as if nothing had happened, didn’t expand on the exact nature of my work and wished her and her family well….then I paused and thought I’ll just grab the empty bin whilst I’m out here! The bin men had left it in the middle of the external driveway (thanks fellas)…it’s a business site….and in my business attire (who sees me when I write!!) I grabbed the bin. I was caught and I bantered with the person who caught me and much laughter ensued.

This morning I have also tried to order a leaving present for Morgan, Em’s boyfriend, as he is off to Uni next week and the web site (name and shame) ‘I Want One of Those.com’ declined both my debit and credit cards. I found the pressies on Amazon and they are now on the way, but the cards being declined on the other site caused my bank’s fraud department to call to check everything was OK…..I don’t think the gentleman on the other end of the line has had a call quite like it because I started joking that I want one of those dot com was not as bad as it sounded and was in fact a gift site and all was well in my world because I had found the items I wanted 50% cheaper on Amazon. He could barely talk through his script for laughing…..

A number of things struck me as I finished my morning tasks….

I…….

No longer hide who I am,
Prioritise my own needs,
Don’t take life too seriously,
Scare myself on a daily basis with my new creative projects,
Get rid of the rubbish,
Tell those I care about what I appreciate about them every day,
Say ‘bollocks to it’ often (sorry Mum) x
