Yellow...


I too am joining in the fun and posting Colours , and have decided to take a snapshot of the little vase of daffodils my Mum put on my workbench to brighten my space....so lovely, so spring-like, so yellow!

I have also decided to 'harvest' my favourite yellow pics from flickr as some sort of glowing inspiration...Chair-yellow , Gold Sunset , Materials , Ranunculus yeah again , Mimosa 1 .....these sure did cheer me up today, and BOY did I need it.....

Upon waking up to a day that was to be full of things to do and work to get through, I decided just to jump straight in the shower and get on with the day.....the second I stepped out the bathroom after my shower (literally cleared the threshold)..the WHOLE bathroom ceiling fell down. I seriously got the fright of my life. The noise was so loud when all the plaster and everything hit the floor, and I really couldn't believe I had just missed being under it all by a small second! (guardian angel please stand up!) I am not a jittery person at all, but I was really got a shock and still feel really wrung out by it (a few tears were shed too!). Suffice to say after a long day, the plaster is cleared up...and the room is clean once more (albeit with a huge hole in the roof!) so...it will be getting all redecorated around the end of the week. Is it time for bed yet?? Anyway..I am just going to go and cook some nice fresh tuna for dinner, and write this whole day off...starting again tomorrow, with, I hope...no major disasters.

Happy Monday indeed! :(

Oh my god, Abigail. That sounds like a horrible Monday morning experience! Hope you are heaving a relaxing evening...

My bathroom ceiling is on the verge of falling down too. I live in a 100 year old building and after many plumbing disasters there is a corner of the ceiling over the tub that is buckled and cracked from all the abuse. It's just a matter of time! When it happens I will probably write off my day too...

Oh my GOSH! I am so sorry for you! Of course you would react like that-I'm sure I'd have run down the street in my towel! I hope you are having a better time now-good lord! You are one strong girl to be posting. You flowers are beautiful-I hope they can give you some cheer. I am sending good vibes across the ocean and hopefully your little parcel will be at your home soon to help :)
Have a better day tomorrow!

I'm so glad you walked out just when you did! What a scare, you poor dear:-/
Your daff pic is just lovely though!

you poor thing!!! that sounds like a very shaking experience - so amazing that you had literally just stepped out of the room though, what spectacularly good timing! I'm kind of shocked by how many people have had similar experiences - I always thought I was just really paranoid that something like that could happen.

The flowers are beautiful and I love the drawing behind them that looks like it is also daffs. Hope today is better :)
