Reasons to be cheerful.

My niece sent me this comprehensive list of conditions that would be reasons for admission to a Lunatic Asylum in the late 19th Century.

She thought of me when she saw it.....I know I am inclined to have dissipation of the nerves, uterine derangement, brain fever, time of life, women's trouble, occasional gathering in the head and feebleness of mind and much more but I have never been a decoy in the army, shot my daughter or been kicked in the head by a horse.....yet.

The last of the Judson's gold.

I think I just bought the last 5 boxes of Judsons Gold paint in the whole of Ireland. I have been using Judsons gold since forever as a cheap substitute for gold leaf.

It seems while I was dozing it went  out of production. After much searching online and in art shops I discovered these 5 boxes gathering dust in good old fashioned country hardware store.

The precious: it's little things like this that brighten my day.

Of all the things I've lost, its my smile I miss the most.

All I want for Christmas is my smile back right,

my smile back right, my smile back right,

all I want for Christmas is my smile back right

So then I can wish you merry Christmas.
