I suppose you all thought that I was busy writing the next Pulitzer prize winner, lazing in suds to my shoulders with champaign and sweet music, or chasing a new batch of Toyboys.
I had a very mundane day of household chores while hoping for inspiration to strike, alas inspiration did not make even the slightest appearance over the fence. Perhaps I had it in the wrong order…
Sweep, dust, wash and polish!
Never mind, I am sure to be back to normal in the morning.
Don’t try to pull the wool over our eyes, we know you’ve spent all day watching the Queen’s tour of the Republic.
Nick – I have no TV and as I said on Twitter yesterday, the Queen will go home thinking that everyone in Dublin wears a navy uniform, peaked hat and Vizi-vest! Only a handful of carefully selected and vetted people will be allowed anywhere near her.
Geez, and here I was thinking you would be one of the select few. She has no idea what she’s missing. I’ve had visions of her setting down between you and Grandad (Head Rambles) for a shot of the really good stuff. Had the giggles all day picturing it.
Brighid – Nah! Not me, although I did meet The Princess Royal on two occasions back in the early 80s.
I for one am glad that you have a ‘normal’ day. Sounds like my Saturdays.
Baino – the bending and stretching is good for a change!
Surely, your muse too needs a break now and then?
Ramana – My muse had a wonderful morning out of doors today. Plenty of blog fodder gathered too 😀
Much of the U.S. is flooding–not here at my home in Utah, but there’s rain everyday. If there’s a chance of a few sunrays, you can bet we’ll be out there catching them! Give your muse a break as often as you can!
Oh by the bye–was that the right color of green the queen wore? Didn’t look right to me.
Alice – We had wonderful sunshine all through March and April this year. Once the month changed to May, we had wet and windy almost every day. I took advantage of a dry day and went looking for inspiration. Hopefully I can make plenty of use of what I found this morning.
The Queen was spot on with her colours. She wore St Patrick’s Blue (green Tone) on her arrival. At the Garden of Remembrance she wore white, and the next day she wore yellow – the three colours of the flag, and she got them in the correct order too! 😀
At the State Dinner in Dublin Castle, she addressed the President and Guests in Irish before moving on to continue her speech in English. Not bad for an 85 year old lady! I wish I had a quarter of her energy.
At the dinner, her white dress had 2,000 lace shamrocks embroidered on it in relief, and she wore a silver Harp brooch.
