For my second T of the week, it has to be T for Toys. Today I met up with my fellow toys at the Farnborough Craft Show. Everyone was there except Clemmie - he was greatly missed! Here we are taking a ride in Shirley's Hot Dog box.
Mary has set the prompts this week and we have to do something each day beginning with the first letter of the day. So today is Friday and so I have to post something beginning with F. So F is for freezing and so here I am sat snuggled up under a blanket.
I was a bit worried that these colour prompts would be all pink or yellow answers but luckily I was inspired by Monkey's post using the Go-Gos. So I found Zoe's Go-Gos this afternoon and had a play with them and the camera.
I looked up on the internet for what was a happy colour and it said yellows and oranges. Well as I have already said I hate yellow so I found this cute little orange smiley Go-Go.
And I also found this angry little green chap too.
Claire's favourite colour:
Easy - she loves pink, hence why she loves me so much!
I am going to bend the rules slightly here and have 6 people to my dinner party. I would have more but it appears some toys aren't playing along with the challenge anymore. So here's who I would invite and why (I have chosen my fave photos of them too):
- Bongo - because he is so funny and I think he would be good fun at the dinner table
- Clemmie - because he is so sweet and caring and I want to give him a cuddle
- Curly - as there aren't many girls doing this challenge and us sistahs have to keep it real!
- Monkey - as we always bananas in our fruit bowl so I know he wouldn't go hungry
- Duckie - because he started this challenge and so we have alot to thank him for
- Hedgie - hopefully he is still playing and hasn't hibernated. He was the first original toy as again he is a major part of the challenge.
I think the person I would most like to meet would have to be the great Morph. He was on the TV in Seventies and Eighties and was on the Take Hart program with the late Tony Hart. I think there is a family resemblance there and I know he used to get up to all sorts of things with his friend Chas. I bet he could me some great stories and who knows maybe we are related somewhere along the line back in history
I should have posted this last night but I was too tired. Whilst investigating around the office, I found that Claire has a new friend. This little waving chap now sits on top of her monitor, so we have a quick photo together.
Than I found this odd looking chap - he didn't say much.
I went into the office with Claire today as I was getting bored at home and I found a box of chocolate brownies. Everyone seems to rave on and on about chocolate so I thought I would try some to see what all the fuss is about. To be honest I didn't like it. It was so sickly sweet, so I won't be trying it again. Plus I don't want to risk putting any weight on! I must look my best for this year of adventure!
That is easy - Art! I am so hopeless at drawing, painting and anything slightly artistic. I thought I would borrow the easel and paints from one of Zoe's dolls and have a go but my picture was rubbish. Think I will stick to gymnastics - oh for a leotard!
This week's prompts have been set by Curly and her first question is a good one I think. Until today I never wanted a job as I think life would be much more fun if no-one had to go to "stinky" work as Claire calls it. But I went to 5 year old's birthday party today with Zoe and decided that I would love to be a world class gymnastic - not exactly a job but it would keep me very busy. The party was in a sports hall and there was lots of gym equipment - beams, vaults, jump mats etc. After all the kids had gone I had a good play.
Curly's second question was "If I were still at school, what would my first choice option be?". Well I never went to school but I want to be a gymnastic then my answer would have to be PE wouldn't it? I wonder if Claire can find me a nice leotard so I can do some more practising.
Claire's life is so dull, that I know if I tried to spy on her,I wouldn't see anything exciting, but today I was taken to a play area called Alice in Wonderland with Zoe and 2 of her nursery friends. Zoe had an accident and wet herself and so whilst Claire sorted her out, I went off to try out spying on strangers. And look what I found!!! He was enormous and luckily he was caged. I wonder whether he is a long lost cousin of Bongo's or of Monkey's?
Another one of Kath's questions was "Have they ever put you in an embarrassing situation?". Well today was quite embarrassing. Claire pulled me unceremoniously out of her camera bag where I had been hiding and then burst into uncontrollable laughter. She was trying to explain all about me to her friends and what the forthcoming year was all about. Her 2 friends looked at me as if I was just a plastic doll and nothing more. How rude!!! I cannot begin to tell you how embarrassed I was. They didn't realise just how special I am. Mind you they looked more embarrassed than me when Claire starting taking photos of me around the play area.
Yes Claire is very sharing. She has been busy in her craft room tonight and she let me help her do a layout for the 52 in 10 project. I stuck all the gems round the circle and I got to jump up down on her favourite Martha Stewart punch to make the holes in the pink card. Have to go and have a sit down now as my feet are aching.
Mind you Claire has such a boring life, I can't expect to get out much. If I go to work with her, then the risk of bumping into Jeffery is very high and so I tend to stay at home - I do not want to get myself into that particular pot of trouble again!
Other than work, she is at home, mostly in that flipping craft room or hoovering. James says she is OCD about cleanliness.
So Claire has a boring life, so that means that I have a boring life!!!
Mmmm now that is a good question. They are kind - James was quite happy to share his cup of tea with me, but I wouldn't say they were exactly attentive at all times. I can be left for quite long periods of time - sometimes that is nice as I can relax and do things that I want to do, but sometimes it can be a bit boring. It has given me time to think about my "Jeffery" situation. This is the letter that I gave him today: Dear Jeffery I have thought long and hard about your marriage proposal and have come up with my answer. Your text on Friday really confirmed my decision. You were upset seeing Daisy snogging Big Bird on Alli's desk, but if you didn't care for her, then this wouldn't have affected her. Daisy is the mother of your children and so you will always have that bond with her - a bond much stronger than ours. I cannot risk that you will not chose her over me once again in the future. I love you very much but you hurt me so much when you left me last time that I am not willing to risk that pain all over again. So my answer has to be no. I am going to take this coming year to live my life to the full, go and meet new friends and experience lots of different things. This is too big an opportunity to miss out on. If you are still young, free and single at the end of this year, maybe we could have dinner and see where it leads. Love Pamela x
