Well, Bendigo show if almost there. I leave on Wednesday to be ready to set up on Thursday..i still have badges to make, batts to do and lots and lots of packaging, labelling and little things. I have not had time to breathe, dye my hair or take even remotely good care of myself or relax. Saying that , I honestly believe I am not the relaxing kind.
If you tell me to relax I will do just the opposite just to spite you. If you tell me "take it easy!? You will have to hit me over the head with a take it easy hammer ..before I will get the meaning. I tried. Even when I was sick , I could not take it easy..there is this energiser bunny in me that just does not stop. I blame my brain. Its my brain that gives me these mad ideas and it just does not stop. Anything ranging from a new recipe, to a new fantastic idea for a spindle (read Timey wimey police box spindles) to workshops plans in gorgeous Tasmania to well...anything really.. I don't stop. Apparently I have no "off switch" ...somebody somewhere forgot to add that to me. I am sure that an=t onbe point this will back fire and I will have a total system failure and will spend a large amount of time in "switch off" mode trying to fix the dilemma...until then ..I am and always will be your energiser bunny.
Mind you, Im sure it drives people absolutely mad. I am always "ON" never "OFF" ..to people adhering to a 9-5 regime this is totally maddening and slightly terrifying. Me? well, I just GO! all the time...lol..wondering why really. Mind you I have been doing this for quite some time now. It is not like I just discovered it or just realised it. My system has been on "GO!" for practically all my life...and its not like I am 18...not anymore ...
Bendigo SHow is almost upon us. I will be setting up next Thursday and I still have a truckload of things to do. Yes, I know, I am afraid I will not have enough to please you all..and then , come Wednesday , when it is time to pack the Tardis, I will have to come to the conclusion I need a second tardis coz I can't fit it all in...that's life..well, my life...a strange and magical place, wedged in between a mount Everest of Fluff and the desire to enable as many people as I possibly can..
