Not in rewards, but in the strength to strive, the blessing lies.

Harry the Hall Lizard
I stepped into my front hall last night and nearly trod on this lizard standing stock still. He didn't even twitch when I used the camera flash on him.
I don't know what type of lizard it is. In 32 years of living here have never seen a lizard like this before. P:-) suggested that it looks like the type of lizard that drops its tail when confronted by danger, and I have to agree that his tail looks like a copy of his head.
Here is a slightly closer look. Until I looked closely I thought he was a dried leaf. He was about 10cm from nose tip to tail end.
By morning he had disappeared - probably back outside under my front door.
As I go through all my stuff and sort it I come across many things I have forgotten. (I have been made redundant from my teaching job and will need to move to a smaller home and cull much of my stuff)
I made these naive flower fairies a few years ago and used them to decorate my Christmas tree. They have sat in a bowl in the cupboard ever since. The colours are so cheerful I thought they were worth a photo or two.
I was going to put these in the toy box we have at P:-)'s place for his grandchildren but on second thoughts I decided they were a bit sharp in places and probably not good for little mouths to suck so they were relegated to oblivion.
An e-course to help tidy the bedroom
I have signed up for Project 333 by Courtney.
It is supposed to help you sort out your clothes and wardrobe.
I need help. I am a hoarder by nature. I struggle with my weight and it has varied over the last few years. I went from pretty big to quite thin back to somewhere in the middle. I have kept my 'thin' clothes because I AM going to get thinner. I got rid of my really big clothes, or my Mum took them in so they fitted when I was thinner. I don't have a big cupboard and so I have to admit various piles of clothes sit around on the floor. Half of my clothes don't fit. I have to do something about this if I am going to down size my housing - I can't fit my clothes into the space I have now never mind smaller! But where to start? I hope Project 33 will help. It cost $19.95 and if it can inspire me it will be well worth it.
I will let you know how it goes.
