I have been AWOL for a while as I have been making all sorts of green things for St Patrick's Day which is fast approaching.
I made some hats and shoes for leprechauns ...yup, leprechauns or babies, you know ...little people. Very little people.
Here's the hat
Ahhh...just testing ye'. Those are obviously the shoes. Cute or wha? Being modelled by my grandchild.
(actually its just a doll because on the grandchild front I have given up and settled for a feckin' doll... SONS! - you have a lot to answer for!!! ...go forth and multiply for goodness sake)
Ah-hem...now here is the hat.
And the inevitable St Patrick's day badge. I love making these, so easy and perfect for those crafters who have no patience as they work up so fast.
On a more serious note. I have just done something I have not done for years, decades, maybe I never did it before...at least not because of a song. A book - yes, a film, definitely yes, but a song ...NO..
But I have just cried listening to a song written and performed by Gilbert O' Sullivan on our Late Late Show (the longest running chat show in the world). Do you remember him? A big hit in Ireland and Great Britain in the seventies.
Well he just performed a BEAUTIFUL song he wrote ...about an OUTRAGE????
Is it possible to write such a thing???
YES, and Gilbert did, and I am going to buy his new album because of it.
It has verses that question again and again, how can it be justified by THEM... when ... that upon finding themselves trapped in the buildings, those wonderful people all (all who could) called their loved ones and all they could say was " I love you"
Such a moving song and I am still gobsmacked that someone could write such a beautiful song about something that should have no beauty associated with it - but does, because they, who when it came to the most important moment in their lives, had only one thing to say, and it was " I LOVE YOU"
Here is the link to it on youtube Sound is a bit wobbly but you'll love it.
Have a lovely weekend and tell those you love that you do.
