Flippin’ Friday – already!

Busy today – I have to tidy the kitchen - its Sheila’s day to clean it and after -I’m seeing the girls. I bumped into Margaret in the town and she was very down; her house chain has broken and they are back to square one with most of the stuff packed. This week-end is their Golden Wedding so we ( the girls ) have decided to give Margaret a much needed treat with massage , beauty, whatever. It was Joy’s idea she remembered we had done the same when she was having radio-therapy and said it gave her such a boost. I hope it does the same for Margaret.

L'homme est ne libre, et partout il est dans les fers.

Man is born free, and everywhere is in chains

Jean -Jacques Rousseau 1712-1778

I thought you might like to see some of the artefacts – if that’s the right word – that make the cottage at Fremington so pretty. See below – I hope.

Nice photies Pat, particuarly the Arga and the wee brooom.

Have fun with your pals, and in your case, the beauty is already there for us to see.

I hope you girls have a wonderful time.

Tis so strange, that quote you have here about freedom because I'm obsessesed with the concept of feeling free in our humdrum lives and I've been toying with a post in my head...

A day of pampering is never to be underestimated in its powers of soothing and bolstering! I'm a true believer.

Have a wonderful time with the girls!

Sorry to read of Margaret's troubles. What a depressing drag that must be for them. A Massage sounds like a wonderful treat, my dear....
Very interesting artifacts, my dear....It makes the cottage very homey, doesn't it?

More Halloween things up as of this morning...Come on by if you get a chance.

I had to laugh when you said you had to tidy up the Kitchen because Sheila was coming to clean....Oh do I understand that!

I enjoyed the second Halloween photos.
MTL thinks I'm mad tidying the kitchen but I know how long doing the kitchen took me when I had to clear the clutter first.
I have still more artefacts:)

Jimmy: the trouble is - with your blog's black background and smallish print one imagines only you will read it.
