Words .... they are all over our house.
I was washing the pots last night and started noticing just how many we have accumulated.
Some tell us where we are ....
... some are instructions that need to be followed ... if you don't 'Kiss the Cook' you won't get any tea ;-)
Some tell us to chill out (on the side of the fridge .... haha).
Some are teeny tiny and don't get noticed often.
Others are very important statements of fact!!
Some are there to keep us on the right path.
And some simply sum up the cat's attitude problem perfectly!!
There are lists of things to remember .....
.... and things not to forget.
Do you ever walk into a room and forget why you went in there, well you're safe in our bathroom then .... unless you simply wanted to use the toilet and you end up climbing in the bath ;-)
I've always loved words, from being a small child and reading in bed by torchlight, reading all the road signs on any journey in my uncles car. I devoured Enid Blyton books and read them over and over, I knew 'What Katy Did' .... and what she did next! I read fairy stories, fables and classics, I loved, loved, loved Robinson Crusoe and then in my teens moved on to horror stories, lying in bed wondering if Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Raven' would get me. Having a conversation with my son the other week we were talking about this and he was so knowledgeable I was briefly impressed ... turned out it featured in an episode of 'The Simpsons' oh well at least he knew of it. I discovered Dylan Thomas and moved onto poetry, both reading and writing and lost myself in a new world.
I still read constantly and love the written word so much. My only O level was in English Language and one of my first jobs entailed typing and proof reading. I guess that's why I Blog. I get to put words on 'paper', read them back myself and read other peoples words commenting on mine.
And of course there's the small matter of the collections of books dotted around the house, of which this is only one.
And talking of books, I have a lovely little giveaway for all my Followers in a couple of days ... so watch this space :-)
