LOL! You'd better get pictures!
Thoroughly delightful post ~~ can't wait to see what happens to 'the shed.'
Chantel, I may be out walking the dog..
It's still a work in progress, Helen (I hope)!
Abby's 100% correct on this one. The main purpose of a little sister is to keep her big brother in line by annoying the hell out of him.
I fear there may be blood shed, X-Dell, but enough is enough - he's had sole exclusivity for ten years, it's time someone else has their turn. 'Sides, he's gone most of the year.
You have a totally new look to your blog! It's brilliantly fun. Especially love the photo/illustration of the girls in front of the shed. It'll get easier to draw smoother lines with practice. I hope to see more posts in this style.
Hiya Chewy! "Paint" is limited, but it gets the job done (grin), I had a blast. You know how uninspired I've felt with my blog as of late, 'twas overdue a new approach.
Too funny for words! It'll be a perfect little cottage for me and students to come for lessons! lol It's 3 months come Monday we'll be leaving on a jet plane...la la la
I'd say Matt is going to be in for a huge surprise... er... shock! Go, Abby, it's your turn!Happy Mother's Day, Shrinky!
It's probably best to tell him, it will give him time to get over it. Of course he may be at finals so don't. And you've blocked off the glen then ?.
Enjoyed… He should know, when it comes to most any shelter, the girls get their way in the end.
Wonderful name..."Blood Shed!" lol!
LOL!!!ps: I like your new look! :)
Hope they have fun with it!
fits will be thrown..ha
Blood Shed. That's a good name for it.
A little tetchy is just what he needs!Pearl
Mmmm, I wonder how he will react? Do tell? Great cartoon drawing too Carol - Dave
Happy Mother's Day! This was so amusing to read. A flock of girls practicing nest-building. Too cute! It sorta reminded me of my 'dating' years when girls would skeptically look around my apartment making plans of what simply must go! (Most everything) I had a huge rock collection. I had rocks all over the place. It was a test of love when one gal told me they needed to be banished to the yard. In that case, she lost. No way would any woman come between me and my rocks! : )
Yep, same thing happen here except it was the larger bedroom. The son who was moved out of his room exploded too. Five years later, it's still a sore spot between them...
Ooooh Leslie, it's not long now, is it? I'm so excited, but Lord knows what state this shed of ours will be in by then!
Aw Cheers, Ms. A - but truth be told, we celebrated Mothering Sunday a couple of months ago, here in the UK! I do hope you are having a great one.
You are so funny, Vince, I had a good chuckle reading this! Ack, he's going to kick off, no question, why prolong the sulking by telling him in advance, eh?
I think, Anthony, this will be his first painful lesson on that (wink)..
Hi Denise, hmnn, I'm just hoping it won't earn that name!
Hi Choco, you noticed, then (teehee)? I felt it was time for a shake up.
I'm sure they will, Crack your whip.
So long as it's only fits that are thrown, eh Jackie?
X-Dell, it scares me it may well be remember that way, once Matt arrives back..!
Yeah Pearl, it's time for the showdown - shudder.
Aww, thanks Dave, I had such a lot of fun doing this post.
Ha Dan, it's funny how opposing the girls ideal vision of their perfect clubhouse is from Matt's - he'll consider the place wrecked when he sees it. I think you understand (smile).
Oh Mamma, I have a sinking feeling the same will ring true with the shed. Kids (I say "kids", ha, he'll be 21 this year) can be so territorial!
I've never felt your blog was uninspired. I think it's pretty doggone wonderful. But this just might be wonderfuller. .. :).Eh, who cares about grammar. I think it's Girl time now.... And obviously the girls think so too.Speaking of uninspired, mine has been just that. Haven't even done much visiting although I do generally keep up through google reader. For example, I know your island has those Manx cats. I have 2. Had two, I should say. I had to finally put my cancer kitty to sleep.
They're doing that!? To his shed!?Sheesh!!!!Chicks, I tell ya.
Ha ha ha! No one holds power forever!
Even though it's his sister he should appreciate (he won't) the lesson of having things rearranged by a woman. The sooner he gets use to that the better.
Oh, this was fun- can't wait to hear an update on this!
Hey Shrinky, thanks for popping by. Nice to meet someone else who uses the word 'tetchy'. Very interesting blog you have here. I'll be back to read more. :)
But all sheds deserve a female touch!!!
Hiya Foam, awww, well for what it counts, your blog has oodles of girl power, too - always has (smile).
Yup Al, typical, eh? (Snicker..)
That, Secret Agent, is a valuable lesson in life to learn. (wink)
Hiya Bill, as the eldest of four, you'd think he would've learned that by now, wouldn't you? Tee-hee..
Hey there Jodi, great to see you in here, thanks for stopping by! Actually, I have a whole wide variety of words to describe how Matt can get, but um, I thought it best to opt for keeping it clean.. (sigh)
Bijoux, you're a girlie after my own heart!
What is it with girls and cushions? I found some in Primark the other day and showed the girls, they had Big Red London buses on them! COOL!!! I just got one of those "you are not helping" looks so headed to ModelZone for 10 mins instead
Smart girls, and wonderful drawings! I like how you combined it with the cute photo insert! Thanks for following me, and I look forward to more of your adventures! Julie
Think before doing it..
What can I say, Furtheron? If you have to ask, you'll never know (wink).
Hi there Julie, I'm so delighted you popped over! This style is a new venture for me, I really enjoyed playing around with it, and am really glad it made you smile!
Hi there FEDO, how nice of you to stop by (smile). In fairness, I always told Matt from day one, it would eventually be passed on to the girls once he left home for university (he's been there two years now)!
How cruel. Hope you have the video camera going to see the meltdown.
Hello Mark, welcome back! Er, methinks a camcording might only add fuel to the fire - even I'm not THAT foolish (nervous twitch)!
Excellent - This seems to be a very onesided situation...
Thanks, RC, I think so too, it's time the girls had their turn, it's been well overdue.
I'm not familiar with the "principals"...so, forgive me, but I don't know what is going on...Sorry about that. Thanks for coming by, my dear.
Sorry this confuses you, Lady of the hills, I'd thought it self-explanatory (shrug), but no worries.
A man needs his sanctuary!*Sigh* I guess he'll learn to take refuge in the bathroom like the rest of us poor guys.
Sometimes dealing with all the frilly stuff is worth it, just so we can be next to the ladies!
Sanctuary/manktuary Bone, save your pity, the lad has his very own all-10-guys-hanging-together student flat, to do all that kinda' s**t in now..
otin, I always knew you were a big ol' softie at heart (hugs)!
10-guys-hanging-together is either a monastery or a barracks. Certainly a challenge to the nasal sensors of any sober chick within ten miles. Thank god the drink knocks off the nose before anything else or we blokes wouldn't get any til we were 30.
Haaaaaaaaaa, you've nailed it, Vince, too, too true. Next term year (for his final one) he's scaled it down to renting with five, but it'll still be a midden heap.. sigh.I pity the neighbours.
LMAO...aye, 'tis surprised he'll be bein'...
Heh. I love your words no end, but your drawings are hilarious. Good job!
oooh it's so smart in here! All hand drawn pics and smart format. I like it! I'd like pics of the finished shed (without the bodies!!) xxx
How hugely fun your blog is with this facelift! LOVE LOVE the drawings/photos.Writer and artist all rolled into one Shrinkster!Hissie fit.That's what Mat'll be having. Oh, hah,,,,I do love the word tetchy. Never heard that one before,though it sounds like it could apply to Ins.Steele.:-)Book 3 down,,,,
Fun Post - gave me a nice smile. Thanks!
I must interject. A Hissy Fit is a purely female occurrence characterized by incoherent fury with words delivered at a pitch reserved for the aural abilities of certain dog breeds. It's always caused by their partner. Men consider it about a DEFCON-3. It is usually followed by a flounce with the accompanying words 'I'm going home to Mom'. It's rare indeed with the older partner since by then they both have mastered the arts of knife twisting & married people torture.
So what happened to the birthday post above this? I know I didn't imagine that. There was a video! Wasn't there?Signed,I think I might be losing it
Oh Gawd, I am so embarrassed bone, this wasn't meant to publish yet, I only put it up to have a peek to see if the video worked, AND I'D THOUGHT I'd disabled it from general view.. obviously it wasn't (blush). It's not meant to post until the 26th, on her birthday!But thank you for the gorgeous and lovely comments (it'll still go up when I post) - and no, rest assured you'll never be a Numtie in my book (x)..
Gee Sully, you sure do know how to light a smile on my face, thank you for that my friend (doing my own happy dance now, on the table..)
To say the least, Skunk (Bwahahaha)!
Seriously Kristina, I'm planning on laying low for a few days after he arrives..!
Sheesh Babs, you've gone and turned me ears all burny-pink now (embarrassed giggle).. I always love it when you stop by(x)!
Hey GQ, you're back - Woohoo!
Eeeeee Vince, that's slanderous, that is - and very, very funny (hehheh). To be fair, I've always found a good long sulk tops the hissy fit, hands down. And I'm proud to say I've NEVER packed my bags to take off to the mother - what kind of suffering would that inflict? It's far best to stay up close and personal when you need to inject a healthy dose of misery (wink),
(stamping foot)But I have seen, first hand,,,unadorned MALE hissie fits!It ain't purty.
What a fun post.. you never fail to amuse. :)
Here, here Babs, I can attest to that! (Laughing)
I had a lot of fun with this one, Hilary, a slightly different format!
Bull, girls, pure bull. When you see something like a arched-back wet cat spitting like one of those Mexican dishes where they bring the frying pan to the table combined with a vocal outrage pitched a couple of octaves above a steam whistle then you've got a hissy-fit. Men just don't have the vocal range. I'm not saying we dont flounce but it's more grrrrrr rather that eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Ah, now I can see where you're getting at, Vince, with your more than able way of articulation - it's a fine picture you lay out there (smile). Perhaps I might concede you have a point, having personally experienced that grrrrrr myself, upon ocassion - it's usually a good signal to quit poking the bear!
He's gone, she's there. That's the law of the land, isn't it? lol
