card making

A little blue hedgehog asks ‘how are you?’ and I reply:
->I’m a little tired and a little too awake.
->I’m quite excited and a little nervous.
->I’m a little flummoxed as to how to correctly pack for two very different sets of weather conditions.
->I’m very grateful that someone else around here is techno-savvy and can do things like make our UK satnav know the roads in America. Because I get lost. A lot.
->I’m looking forward to sitting back and watching some movies tomorrow but I will probably feel like I should be doing something more practical.
->I’m still in love with hedgehogs.

{Grandma, I still don’t have a garden for my hedgehog to be in, but I am now claiming the park as my own. Everyone else seems to. But I don’t think ‘There’s a Hedgehog in my Park’ sounds nearly so nice as ‘There’s a Hedgehog in my Garden’. Nor does ‘There’s a Hedgehog on my Balcony’. Plus that would be quite wrong, unless the hedgehog grew wings or is being held captive. Clearly, we need a garden for the hedgehog. I have tried explaining this to someone and he keeps mumbling about seeing what happens to the housing market. So we’ll see.}

Hmmm. Maybe little blue hedgehog just wanted me to say ‘I’m fine; how are you?’

As promised: a little card related to yesterday’s exercise, but the end result is very different. And today’s little trick? You really can find plenty of ways to use lists. It’s not cheating, it’s not a shortcut. It’s your writing and some days you will choose to write that way. Here is a little list you might find interesting, if you appreciate quirky literary trivia.

Would love to see if you make something with this one. Tomorrow it will be time for something completely different.


PS: Look up at the top of your screen. I finally gave my blog a name. Silly, I know.
