My days often lead me in many a different directions...and more often than not it is in the opposite direction of where I should be headed.....BUT (and in my world there is ALWAYS a but)...there is nothing better than picking up the phone and hearing the delight of a friend simply because you have taken the time to see how they are travelling.

Many an hour is spent on the phone giggling with friends.....all the time me knowing that it is precious time that should be spent elsewhere...but hang it.....giggling is much better fun! ....and we all know that girls are meant to giggle!

With many of my crafting friends interstate, they cannot be simply called and requested "pop the kettle on...I'm coming over".....but no matter.......we make up for it with our special phone chats!.....and who knows one day I may just make that familiar call and actually be on the way....so girls (and you know who y'all are).....keep that kettle handy and a Betty Crocker packet mix in the cupboard just in case!!!

....and the moral to all of this????........a lesson I have learned (I told you there would be words of wisdom didn't I...lol)......Life is far too short....so pick up the phone and make a friend's day....the work will still be there tomorrow...I can guarantee that!

Till next time....whenever that may be ( ..and I suppose that all depends if I am heading in the direction of the computer...or not???).....toodles
