  1. Oh Alsion! How I know what you mean! We want a new kitchen floor too! And yet just Saturday I was at an outdoor antiques market buying a set of ten pretty flowered dishes I didn't need, but wanted oh so bad! (AND bought a set of purple flower cotton pillowcases, AND a faded pink tin to hold my laundry powder!) Sometimes I think, "Ok, as the Mama I've got to help save money so we can buy new tile, or double paned windows!" What shall we do?!! 🙂

  2. we all go through this at sometime, in some way , Alison. Just this past week or so since finding your site, it has been the same for me.
    Those 'voices in my head' keep asking me if all this fluffing and pottering is important in the scheme of things, when people are dying, suffering and starving all over the world, is it that important to have *pink newspaper* to clean our windows?
    YES ! I think it is..we all need a little beauty in our life to escape the sadness and depression that is constantly bombarded at us through the media
    I remember reading once in a magazine about Princess Diana and Mother Theresa of Calcutta ~ Diana asked Mother Theresa what she could do to help the world ~ Mother Theresa's answer " go home and look after your family ' ( not the exact words )
    so what you are doing at home is YOUR purpose in life at this stage, it will change over the years …enjoy what your family..bringing up children is one of THE most important things we can ever do ~

  3. Our dear Alison…Your honesty is a breath of fresh air and we all have thoughts like you do…(oh boy, I sure wish I could articulate my feelings like you do!!) You are being true to yourself and following your heart…there is nothing wrong with that, if anything you are one of the brave souls in this world who actually do have the courage to do what makes you HAPPY, and I for one admire you…you have touched many in your own special way….thank you Hon! You are a gem…

  4. Lets face it Alison, if you had the money to go and buy the latest, most expensive Bang & Olufsen sound system, you would come back from your shopping trip with a wind up gramophone and several copies of "his masters voice" records. Likewise if the choice was between a new kitchen floor and a fabulous 19th century Vienesse cake stand, I think I know which one you would choose!
