A little ragged around the edges to be sure....
but here none the less
I did survive christmas days at mothers...it was even quite pleasant
The many laybys went down well
I have a new watch from my children
My washing machine has blown its top....I am hoping its just a stray something needing to be released from its prison in the pump!
I may need a captain!
more to come after I am actually awake......

"I think it's raining," he said to his wife.
"No, that felt more like snow to me," she replied.
"No, I'm sure it was just rain," he said.
Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument about whether it was raining or snowing.
Just then they saw a minor communist party official walking toward them.
"Let's not fight about it," the man said,
"Let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether it's officially raining or snowing."
As the official approached, the man asked,
"Tell us, Comrade Rudolph, is it officially raining or snowing?"
"It's raining, of course," he answered, and walked on.
But the woman insisted, "I know that felt like snow!"
To which the man replied, "Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear."
Only 27 more bloody days to go........

This is interesting and etc....
I am stuffed.
Absolutely, completely knackered.
I have been dreaming strange and awful dreams for days.
I have been working in high frenetic energies (ie: charly square).
I have been fighting my absolute anger with my mother for so very long now. This will be resolved some time soon I am very sure. It has been denied too long and needs to be released appropriately somehow.......
I am weary.
All is well otherwise.
I am a christmas!
ho ho ho hum xx

- being more than big hair
- maryBOSSes that stand their ground with yukky people and win!
- marys who care
- laybys that are already done and only require picking up........
- not having to think about what to buy ones kids for xmas anymore
- drum orders and calender club shifts
- remembering the sequence of cash register buttons under pressure
- cats who don't pee in drawers they are trapped in all day
Not so excellent things
- mothers who call on your way to charly and harass you on the bus so you cannot yell at them
- mothers who KNOW ALL and don't hear and relegate you to small speechless child status in the blink of an eye
- not being able to speak when one is angry
- needing to pee when surrounded by 6 deep frantic calender shoppers waving cash and cards....
- cats who hide in drawers and get trapped and aren't seen for a whole day and thats why they are VERY hungry
- little fish who die and big ones who eat their eyeballs
- mothers ..... plurgh...knowing that to move on one must move through mother type situations and so must continue to relate even though you want to run far far away very very fast and hide where its safe...aaarrrggghhh
I have been pondering the lovely wishes and comments made to me by various rose cottagers over the past weeks.
About what people see when they look at me.
Its funny isn't it, how we spend a lifetime, it seems, cultivating an image that we find acceptable, to show others and say to them..."this is who I am".
Yes, I have big hair, and yes, I paint and am artistic, but is that all I am?
Is that all people see when they look at me?
I hope not.
I have spent the last 5 years of my life trying to recreate and find me.
Who I am and what I think and what I want have all shifted and changed drastically and hopefully grown and evolved into something more closely resembling the real and true self that I am.....I am not who I used to be and yet I am still exactly who I used to be...interesting thoughts for sure.
What is it I want people to see when they look at me?
More interesting still.
Who am I?

Then I will say that a plain drum with no design sells for $180, a workshop is $180 at the moment......soon to be $220 next year.
...and that a painted drum such as the ones below would be sold for anywhere between $240 and up depending on how difficult you make it for us........I mean how complex the design.
A REALLY simple design (with a drum attatched) would be about $200.....
Then let me say that any mary who wants to order a drum with whatever dragons and such on them as they like can have it for $220. That is several hours of my guts slogging for FREE.
If one is thinking "oh my gosh, how expensive is that, that mary must be MAD" etc etc.....then go and do some research and come back and tell me how inexpensive our drums are...because they ARE.
Designed drums like ours usually sell for $350 and onwards on the net (and thats US dollars!)
Am sounding defensive now....oops
Any hoo I shall be at the cottage tonight or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
only please dont if you are a nut! I have'nt got time to deal with strange weirdos etc....not you mary you can email me anytime for sure.

just to prove that I don't sit around all day playing with photoshop,
heres the drum I painted today
Hope your all having fun at full moon with dragons while I am attempting to amuse my poor self.
- that fake do it yourself nails are much cheaper than getting 'nailed'?
- and that they come up pretty good, schmick model type hand things happening, lovely
- but pop off when you do real things like take clothes out of the washing machine
- and melt when you put them near fire or stains for drums
- and paint soaks right into them and doesnt come out
- and keyboards eat them
- and they poke you in the eye whilst sleeping
This is all very interesting and for one day, at least, I am going to have long nails.
Tommorrow I shall bite them off for sure and it will serve them bloody right.
They will start up in the new year when I have had some time to sit and plan rather than wing it and hope for the best!
This will work out better for all concerned.
Me included. I have quite a few commitments at this point and would like to plan a kit for all so that costs are more reasonable and so on.
I will let you know when I do!

Have done a guide drawing for a lady and am in process of making two drums on order by some marys or otherwise not marys.....

Well, maybe, just to see what it was like as I have never experienced ANY of these states in my life.
I am the one with the mad and wild jungle knotted down her back, gritting her teeth and punching people out of the way with 4 small kids in a trolley being held in with handcuffs and balls and chains, 3 of whom are screaming incessantly, for the last batman spin mobile for my son, oh hang on that was a while ago now....
Ummm, okay, I am the still the one with wild tangled hair (ran out of good conditioner) limping miles around the shops trying to see whats on sale where so I can afford to buy the much larger and still screaming brats their hearts desires and fumbling around in my HUGE HANDBAG SIZED wallet that is busting at the seams because it is full of unpaid bills and bloody layby dockets, no cash, that you can only find when you dont need them of course. I am the one with the permanent frown from doing sums in head and trying to make 2 and 2 equal 6.
Yes, that is me........
Oh well, jingle bloody bells to all I say.....merry merry whatever.
Its only once a year.

I am bored.
My feet are hurting.
Today has been hot and slow and blahblah.
I rang my mother this morning.....
Had a little chat about phonecall that you may recall me blogging about some while ago.
I left making this call until I was quite sure I would not be a yelling uncontrolled maniac.
And I wasn't.....
Let her rant a bit and then suggested that perhaps we should start again and spend some time getting to know where each other comes from.
Very mature of me of course.
Am now committed for xmas day...plurgh...the things you do.
In reality I suppose maryme's recent post regarding sisters and such had some time to be pondered apon by myself.
I may not like my mother's behaviour very much sometimes but alas, she is my mother regardless and she does love me and I do love her......strange old world.
She is not always an ignoramus and sometimes I am an ignoramus.
Such is the way of the world and I really cannot imagine how one would wipe ones history with someone as important as a mother from their life.......
I would not like my child to feel that way about me.
So, all smartassy stuff aside, I will give it a go.
She does scare me much........
