One of our favourite scenes in the many Disney films we watched when the kids were small, was the one where piglet 'was unaware atop his chair' and was sailing along in a river of rain, bobbing around his furniture.
It has rained like that just recently.
Enough is enough now....I would appreciate dry warm conditions for a while...please?
There are things to be done, and one of the things I have to do today is move a mountain of dvd's into the garage......to sit alongside the mountain of videos....for the time being at least, until the rest of the family think it is ok to' let-go'.
Among the videos we have all the old favourite Disney films, Pinocchio and Junglebook and Dumbo and Beauty and the Beast ...... I have spent many happy hours watching them all, and always enjoyed a good blub watching the soppy scenes like the 'Baby mine, don't you cry' lullaby in Dumbo.....aaaaahhhh...
but we are running out of space in our little old home and so need to move things around, or at least get them closer to being given away.....one step at a time.
So 'sorting out' is going to be done today. Rooms, drawers, cupboards, and maybe even my handbag.....yesterday I thought 'why are the contents of this bag so 'old lady' now?'....I used to just have cigarettes and money stuffed in my jeans pockets (no mobile 'phones) back in my young and single days, and now I never leave home without painkillers, tissues, 'phone, lipsalve, sunglasses, pen etc., and I suspect that pretty soon I will look in my bag and find one of those see through plastic folding head scarf thingies, a lace hanky and 'smelling salts'............
