I've got word blindness...

words are addictive, not just words that you use in day to day conversations but words as an instrument of design. Julie and I had our final play day for a while today *sniff sniff* and as we discussed the freakish similarities of our minds (if you check out the slide shows on both our blogs it may appear that we secretly share the same brain: either that or I'm slowly ripping off her identity!) we sorted out this lovely assortment from K&Co.Now Julie has a way with the written word, however today's attempts at creating profound and meaningful sentences soon degenerated into such phrases as 'wasn't wasn't sleepover', 'soup hips' and others which are not fit to be exposed to the general public! In the end it all led to word blindness:
'word blindness'; noun: 'when one can no longer read the words for the hysteria.'

Phrases worthy of note which should accompany this day include "Hannah-ism is cool, it's like a mannerism' and my favourite from last week 'Can you smell sugar?" As I do not wish to tar anyone with the *foolish brush* I shall leave you to draw your own conclusions as to who spoke these immortal words. *Note to self: is there a way to photograph a phrase? - that truly would be a scrap worthy photo.*
Back to the point; there was a (tenuously linked) reason behind all this word sorting, it was so I could decorate my larger than life 'to-do peg' which shall decorate my new desk at my new job and hold up all the many important jobs that I will have to do when I am important.

'Clever pink bird' that's me!



So the peg of glee is complete, despite the word blindness, hysteria and general lack of concentration due to the inevitable over consumption of tea. My desk will look pretty and I have a feeling that you won't be seeing the last of this fella... watch this space....

p.s Julie: in case you didn't know I think you're awesome, you give me hope that my brain in normal and that a love of tape measures and graph paper is entirely natural. Just stay away from the Fimo and all will be fine. muchos love.

Ciao Bella!
