Inspiration: Castle

I've just discovered Castle.
Felt at its very best:

Of course, immediately, I wanted to put my felt stash to good use and create my own embroidered rainbow of song lyrics. The hard bit was picking which song. Justin's vote was for "The stars at night, are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas," and I also considered doing a verse of the romantic "All I Want Is You" from the Juno soundtrack, but in the end, neither of those were chosen.

Here are the first few words of the lyrics I picked, from a verse of one of my favourite songs:

Any guesses? (Clue: it's going in the bedroom, to help me feel sunny each day)

Thank you all for stopping by and connecting over the past week! I'm sure Potato is going to be very happy to find a home with one of you tomorrow...

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly
I don't know why she wallowed a fly
Perhaps she'll die...


Which, by the way, is precisely the song I have had in my head the minute I started on all that dead fly french knottery. HOW DID YOU KNOW?!!

Where's your email address Mrs?! Having another weirdy moment posting a reply to yours here...

That 'honest retelling' was pure, cathartic writing it down and letting it out out out. That and the conversation with the kid, meant that I could finally NOT cry every time I thought about it. Then I had the third birth. It was glorious. Now I cry every time I think about that one.

Kid forgiveness is wonderful. The trick, I reckon, is to forgive yourself.

Congratulations on your wee girl. And hey, lovely to meet you!
