CL Fair...waiting game
So I've presented the facts...I've said "isn't it a good idea that we head to Glasgow for a lovely shopping weekend?"
Ive then just not mentioned shopping and have attempted (rather unsuccessfully) to make out like he was always going on about Glasgow.
Ive said that we can take the train, I've said that we can do things he likes...but all of this to no avail.
I have (thus far) been unsuccessful in convincing TH that it is a good idea to go to the Christmas Fair and do all things Christmassy. He does not want to soak up the glee of the event. OK, that's probably a wee bit unfair.
He doesn't want to be pushed and prodded, elbowed and shoved by lots and lots of women.
He doesn't want to be one of those men that follow the women folk around the shops...and i can see his point. The only thing is that we are so very far away from Glasgow that its really not a day trip, and if it was it would be such a long long and mostly unpleasant day to squeeze such an extraordinary amount of 'fun' things in, that invariably, it becomes the most un-fun thing you can think of.
But just look at all of the lovely pictures and adverts mean to entice folk like us.....
Look at all of the idyllic scenes we...ahem, i always want to buy into...
I think that I'll be trying to convince very busy friends to come on jaunts to the other side of the country with me...
Yes, i think I'm about to start the persuasion game all over again!
Homemaking, put quite simply is a form of art...I dont mean this in a self righteous way at all. I only mean that we should really aim to take care of our homely enviroment and not look down upon those who wish to do it.
I feel-or maybe i should say, I certainly have witnessed- occasions where women are too quick to turn on each other and put down the choices some make which too closely resemble choices our Grandmothers made, or paths they had no option but to follow.
I welcome anyone who takes the time to read my rambley, witless, chatter, but most importantly I welcome anyone who feels the same! We should be proud we can make our own decisions, and mine is to follow all happhazard forays into the world of homemaking and crafting.
The Husband and I have just found out we will be moving to Singapore in November 2013. 'TH's work will take us there for 2 years-hopefully we will save up for a house, have lots of adventures, visit lots of new places and maybe just have a little one. Right now we live in a little house in the middle of a field in the North East of Scotland. We moved from a seaside cottage which we moved to from a little flat in the suburbs. Our current house has lots of land and we are surrounded by trees on the edge of the glens. We have a westie who takes up all of our time and is utterly content with it staying that way! I love cooking, baking, gardening, and crafting. This blog is a collection of thoughts, pictures and general chit-chat.
Thank you for stopping by!x
Warm Cuddles on a bad day,
Warm Cuddles on a good day,
Bows, ribbons and lace,
Days out and adventures,
Baking beautiful things that make people smile,
Warm blankets and squishy pillows,
Any excuse to celebrate
