Can I stay home, please? (And a giveaway!)

Can I stay home, please? (And a giveaway!)

I really don’t want to work today

I’d simply much rather stay home

The library can manage without me I’m sure

Now where did I put that phone?

I’ll call them and tell them a little white lie

Who in the world would it harm?

I’ll tell them my head hurts, my tummy’s all wrong

And I’ve possibly broken my arm

My car’s broken down or got a flat tyre

My house is in need of repair

The bathroom is flooded, the kitchen’s on fire

And I can’t do a thing with my hair

So I simply must stay at home today

It’s surely the right thing to do

Then I can craft and create and play

And then I won’t feel so blue

Sigh.  Another work day ahead.  So happy I’m not working this weekend.  The only thing worse than working on a Friday is knowing you have to come in again on Saturday!  Happy work day to all of you who have to do the 9-5 thing today – we’re all in this together.  And for those of you who have the luxury of staying at home, crafting, sewing, painting, creating and being artistic and “authentic” – lucky, lucky you!  Tell us how you did it and how we can do it too!

Have a happy end-of-the-week everybody 🙂

PS GIVEAWAY! As a “thank goodness it’s the weekend” special, I’m going to give away a pair of Violet Annie earrings made by moi, to one lucky person who leaves me a comment.  Figured it was about time I started giving back and sharing the love a little.  Just leave me a comment and let me know what colour you like best (before Feb 19).  The winner will be randomly chosen.  🙂

  1. Going to work has been getting in the way of my crafting too. But I DO have to say that I like the regular pay and benefits like paid vacation. Sigh.
    Anyway, thanks for the giveaway and good luck to all entrants! I’m with Mary: I love blue.

  2. I used to stay home when my kids were little. I had more time to craft, but truthfully, I was too busy just being a mom and crafting was hard to do! Now I work full time and since my time is more precious, I do make the time to craft, finish projects and start new ones.
    I love any color…really like earthy ones and purple, too!

    1. You sound much more organised than me! And I don’t even have kids! Well done you for getting things finished – I shall try harder!

      1. ….and….(drum roll…) you are the winner of my little giveaway for this post. I will contact you shortly for your details. Congrats! And thanks for commenting. 🙂
