Watercolour workout 2

Well, the watercolour didn't work out..and to make matters even worse, I felt achy and full of cold all day..I need to look after myself better.

On the good side ..Mr Postman called with a package from Preeti in India...above is '34 Bubblegums and Candies'..a selection of tasty treats from Preeti's own blog, 'Just A Mother Of Two'...I like to refer to Preeti as 'The Star Of India' as she's someone whom i value immensely as a friend. So I was anxious to see how the writings contained in the book differed (if at all ) from those on the blog...perhaps it was just me, but there seems an extra sparkle..an added something..to tell the truth, I had cried by the end of the first piece!...then I read on and laughed...a bit more..I pondered...then smiled... what a great little book,I shall treasure it forever and you could do no wrong by ordering your own copy here

Niall,
I feel insanely happy seeing this picture that you have put up.
Just saw the tag--We're not 'blog friends' any more :)
And you have no idea how much I value our friendship too.
A warm hug
Preeti

PS...I'm having great fun imagining you as 'Insanely Happy'!...make sure the neighbours don't see you...mind you, they're probably used to you by now!:-) I've attended to the tag aswell!

Nikhil..I agree, but easy doesn't mean 'light'...
