It was The Milk Maid’s (your humble scribe) turn to dig out our weekly hit of inspiration today and it almost came crumbling down around my ears.
Not one who enjoys leaving things to the last minute, I’d had it all organised; the quote was picked out well in advance and a suitable recipe pinpointed.
Then the floor sanders answered our “we’re ready any time you are” email on Thursday with “how about tomorrow?” and it seemed churlish to say no. It did mean, however, that we would be without an oven for the weekend. Back to the drawing board for the refreshments. Luckily The Bin Inn has just added a cheese counter to their already amazing range of products; everyone was very impressed with the cheeseboard I put together. Crisis averted.
I’d picked out a very pithy, smart Oscar Wilde quote as my contribution this week.Unfortunately, it was so pithy and smart that I inadvertently used it to add weight to a point I was making (some would say arguing, I’ll leave it to you to decide) and it so dazzled everyone that it kind of rendered the words null and void for the big Sunday morning tea unveiling. Google, be my friend…
I was much happier with the words I finally settled on. They’ll remind all on the Homesteader of the importance of keeping our music tuneful and true, especially as we launch into another school term and all the rules, conventions and “norms” we can’t quite adhere to..
May you all find joy in dancing to your own tune this week.
