Hear, see, question and Rabbit on !

Still hanging on, but no longer walking like a duck. I have had no news from the hospital yet. Instead of letting it get up my nerves, I decided that no news is good news. Either that or they lost my gorgeous blobs of biopsy material….Let’s not go there….In a way I have not had time, or rather, given myself time to worry: bunny spin in preparations, spin ins, organising lots of exciting new fibery stuff happening , bunny clipping and grooming and last but not least: intricate planning of a new outside bunny run where the bunbuns can hop to their hearts content without getting wet in this rain kingdom where we are, kitchen renovations (yeah!) and ofcourse the ever ongoing master plan on the raised veggie garden coming soon to a theatre near you…and I’m not even going to mention the IxCHeL online shop website……(yes yes, slap me !..;) ) lol

Whenever in doubt, do fun stuff. Whenever in doubt, do not listen to the gossip. Which leads me to another discussion. I have always been very very open about everything that has been going on in my life be it good or bad. So you may think there is absolutely no question at all in anybody’s mind as to what is happening. WRONG! Apparently there are a huge quantity of people happy enough to take the word of others. Take this little story for example of a girl who came by at a spin in wanting to purchase some yarns: “oh, you still have bunnies! I thought you had given that up?”or another one of my favourites “I thought you were not selling yarns anymore or spinning because you were so sick”…and the list goes on and on and on. I do not know how these things start. People are obvious blissfully happy to assume the worse type scenario. And ofcourse stories change. I am sure that if you make up a story, tell it to a couple of your friends, the story will have changed considerably when it gets back to you as a gossip boomerang a week down the track. Or maybe, with all the fast social media happening, the gossip boomerang will hit you in the face in minutes. There is a fast return apparently. Makes me wonder what is real, what is truth and what is really going on in the world. Even the times we could rely on photographic evidence is over now that you can basically photoshop everything in or out of a photo. So what do you believe?

Certainly not the media, the politicians, the news paper, lawyers, doctors or faint acquaintances . Friends maybe? How about yourself? I’m not one that automatically goes into conspiracy theory behaviour but it all makes you think doesn’t it? Best thing is in my opinion anyway, is to question everything you hear and get to the bottom of things yourself and never ever say “hey, did you hear about so and so?? Just terrible isn’t it? “ Is it an inherent human gene to like gossip? And why is gossip in about 80% of the cases telling you bad or hurtful things about somebody, whether it is true or not?.

So in short: if you can’t say anything good about somebody, don’t say anything. It’s just bad karma getting the better of you. Let’s not give in to gossip , let’s all have as good a time that we can possibly have and leave those who cannot help themselves but just have to gossip and tell bad things about others in their own little colony. Let’s have fun instead ! Spin, knit, felt, crochet, weave and be merry ! and ….do lots of hugging, cuddling and laughing. Hoorah!
