THeRe'S An AnGeL On My ShOuLdEr...

Does anyone remember Butcher Bulls? Those fur or felt covered red or black plastic bulls that most butcher shops had on display. I just went upstairs to satisfy my chocolate craving, & noticed one standing proudly on someones shelf. It reminded me of all the times Dad & I would go shopping, visiting the butcher and the 'Happy Apple' vegie shop (usually on the way to or from a hardware shop). I hadn't seen one of the bulls in years. I wonder if they are now collector items like the Mobil flying horse signs.
Eating has been a very ad hoc affair this week and as a result my pants are falling off me a tad. Not neccessarily a bad thing. I find when I'm like this, I just get out of the habit of eating & forget to start again. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to lunch with my Niece today. She's making Pumkin Soup, something I haven't done in what feels like eons. Though I've been more domestic of late & am enjoying it after a long break.
Quite a few pennies have been dropping of late. Pity they're not $100 notes, I could do with a few of those! One of the things that finally occurred to me was the reason why I didn't feel settled in either of the places I have lived since leaving & divorcing my Husband. Before I left, I had, what I (& others) thought was a beautiful home. Tastefully decorated, comfortable & welcoming. As a result of recently largely living elsewhere, without all my 'things', I realised that since leaving, I had been trying to re-create what I had before I left, but no longer found any pleasure in it. It appears to be no longer important to me, at the present time at least. Don't get me wrong, I still like things to look nice, and I still like decorating and making things, but I suppose I'm in a transition phase. Time to re-arrange some artwork displays perhaps?
All has been quiet on the western front, but I don't expect that to last for too long, they just can't help themselves.
Well, that's all I can think of for now.
