I stencilled the chickens on to the fabric of the above dress.

Things I am afraid of is a very different and much longer list. Ranging from Global Warming, GM Crops, Nuclear power, the power that large corporations have over us to the rather personal fears like heights, flying and getting my kids through to adulthood in one piece. These are fears that cause me stress, but do not reduce me to a quivering, incoherent wreck like the things that go bump in the night.

Not to long a list as I only started recording them in June. I was going to name the best and the worst. The worst ones did not even make the list. And I can't make my mind up what is the best book. It could have been Exit Music or the last Harry Potter. Then again it could have been the latest Terry Pratchett. All of the books I have read have some reason for naming them as the best book. So I will give up on that idea.

Above is my favourite cup, a very large tea cup. It should be used every morning for my breakfast cup of tea, English Breakfast Tea obviously. Problem is, I never have time during the week for breakfast, at the weekends it is usually lunch time by the time I get round to breakfast and to cap it all I can't drink tea regularly anymore (shhhh don't tell anyone but ....causes me bladder problems, no idea why, but not pleasant). The cup though is beautiful, covered in Dasies, even on the bottom of the saucer. I bought it from Abbey Ceramics at the Hersil near Coldstream on the Scottish Borders.
Being the greedy girl I am I could not just have one favourite cup, below is one of my recent bargins. A red spotty mug (really into spots at the moment). It was reduced to half price in a Christmas stock clearance sale, $5 or about £1.50 GBP. It came in a lovely red spotty box, which was worth the $5 by itself. I am looking forward to drinking hot chocolate out of it when Winter comes round again.
More moon pics from last night. I also need to get myself some decent image software. In the pic above you can just make out the leaves on the tree, but it would look so much better if the image could be lightened a bit and I have no idea how to do this. Maybe I should take a night school in Digital Photography this year.
