Worry about it later

I’ve always been a worrier, even though in the grand scheme of things I don’t have that much to fret about (ain’t that always the way?). I’ve had a charmed life, never suffered too greatly and always managed to overcome the problems that did come my way, but that doesn’t stop me worrying about the ‘what ifs’. So when I decided to ‘make an encouraging banner’ for Learning To Love You More. I didn’t have to think too long and hard on the message I wanted to convey. ‘Worry about it later’ is a motto I made up years ago* and it’s a handy one for those interfering niggles that won’t go away. You tell yourself that now is not the time to worry, arrange an appointment with yourself to ‘worry about it later’ and of-course, by the time later comes round, your mind is usually engaged in some other activity of a non-worrying nature. Well it works for me.

I sent my banner to Nicky Peacock who is putting it in an exhibition at the Co-operative Building in Middlesbrough from 25th July. I can’t make it up to Middlesborough but if you’re in the area, do visit, it will surely be inspiring.

The 123 tag

I’ve been tagged by Make Do & Mend to do the page 123 tag. And I’ve got a funny feeling someone else tagged me to do this too, but no recollection of who it was.

The rules:
1. Pick up nearest book
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the next 3 sentences
5. Tag 5 people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

Where do you wish to be buried and in what?
I want to be cremated, then stored in aforementioned husband’s favorite piece of architectural pottery or scattered in Central Park

Not that thrilling is it but I do recommend the book, a total hoot! I think a lot of people have done this tag already but if not I tag these 5:
The Musings of Ondo Lady

Diary Of A Third World Fashionista

Super Kawaii Mama

Geometric Sleep

Coco’s Tea Party
