TT - news - holidays

Theme Thursday nearly got the better of me this time, I couldn't think of any photos in my archives which would do for "brush", even with my best lateral thinking hat on.

But then I noticed this arrangement in the kitchen.....




So this is today's Theme Thursday photo which is in honour of Anoia - in Terry Pratchett's discworld, the goddess of things that get stuck in kitchen drawers.

Most likely to get stuck - the bottle brushes

plus a pastry brush
plus the washing up brush
plus a paint brush of LG's
plus a dolphin nailbrush in the background. Nose only visible.





I've been a bit incommunicado in the blog world lately, for which apologies again.

I hit the ground running fast last September in a new job, on a year's contract after extricating myself from a nasty and unliveable situation in my previous job - and it feels as though I've hardly slowed pace or stopped since then.

I reached a high point of tension a few weeks back when I had to apply for my job, go through interview, worryworry lack of sleep etcetcetc, but thankfully I got the job.

Accumulated stress built up over quite a long period is seeping out of me, leaving me limp and intermittently vacant.

Last Friday at 5pm I jubilantly set my "out of office" message on my work email.

This Friday - tomorrow! eeeek! - I am off to India for 2 weeks, touring a bit in Kerala with a great friend and a few other people. I'm just, only just, just now, not quite, well almost beginning to believe that this is going to happen.

I'm very excited, and will be back in blogland - with photos no doubt - in a couple of weeks time.
