Please, Miss…..it was the Guinness…

I’m not up to date with my writing and blogging because…

..the dog ate my homework

…my wee sister ripped up my jotter…

…some sheep put me off my stride…

 

…I was hypnotised by an evil witch and forgot…

…I was in a cottage with some wee people  and this old woman stopped in passing and made me eat a bit of an apple that was infected by an amnesia serum and it was just so peaceful…

an old hippy invaded my brain…

…an old hippy did invade my brain…

 

…and I’ve been in a semi-automatic state of meditation…

…contemplating tracks…

.. at the beach…

…and I couldn’t be bothered so I just read books instead…

…I had to work out some cloud formations…

…and there were some views I had to check out…

…a beautiful church I had to explore and photograph…

…I had to  climb a few mountains  sit at the bottom of some mountains admiring the view, reading and drawing, while my husband ran up and down them…

…I had to pretend to keep an eye on the kids while my husband stared into space did his own contemplating and played at caveman built a few fires…

 

When I returned from holiday, someone had eaten every morsel of food in the house except for some mouldy cheese and festering tomatoes  and I had to spend days stocking up…

… I’ve been catching up blethering  with friends and family I haven’t seen in a while…

…my laptop’s been playing silly buggers  freezing constantly and I had to save it from the blue screen of death…and it’s taken me ages!…

…Mrs Muse came on holiday with me and she missed the return ferry but may be back soon and decided to stay on supping Guinness, which, by the way, is the best I’ve she’s ever tasted……

…I took photographs of my homework instead…

…and drew a bit…

…I had to go out and trail round the shops doing school uniform buying… no, wait, that was a dream…

…I’ve still to trail round the shops doing school uniform buying…

…I’ve been watching the Commonwealth Games…

….Wait a minute….

I’M the teacher…no excuses… just chilled to the point of comatose!…

Still to do those feckin’ uniforms though and only a week left before school….

but like the Guinness, I’m not bitter…

My haze is lifting…I think…so back to normal fairly soon. Maybe.

 

 Slainte!

  1. I know exactly what you mean. I was away for three days last weekend. It took considerable self-discipline to stay seated behind the keyboard. Cheers, dears.

    1. Wonderful, isn’t it! I didn’t take my laptop with me although I had lots of paper…which I just drew on instead! 😉 I hope you had a lovely break, Maggie.

  4. No…don’t come back! Your head is exactly where it should be every day. This world back here will have your head space in a vice very quickly 🙂 You have no idea how beautiful that blue screen of death is….it wants to take you away aha, take you away, take you away!
    Sorry, got carried away a bit there…but its true. You need to be in that head space (back there), but be here in body! A great trick AND you also apparently walk around with a silly grin all over your face and have urges to strip and swim naked in any water that you come across 🙂 (Just be careful, they get funny and arrest you for it though 🙂 ).
    Oh, and welcome back! 🙂

    1. Omg! Is that what happened? I did strip down – not naked though! but the water was too cold to swim in so I settled for sunbathing. Unfortunately, I hadn’t brought my swimsuit to the beach that particular day. Well, I didn’t know it was going to be so hot. And undies are just like a swimsuit. Kind of. And very pleasant it was too. 🙂
      I think I’ve been in that place you speak of the whole time I was away and since I came back. My body has been going through the motions of what I have to do but my mind is still in something of a meditative state. It’s weird to have it last for so long. But I’m not complaining. It’s a very enjoyable place to be.
      You now have me trying to remember the rest of that song. I think it’s,
      ‘They’re coming to take me away, haha, hehe, to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time and I’ll be happy to see those nice young men in their long white coats…’ That’s it. My brain’s given out again…gone into drifting mode…
      I’ll need to start trying to focus again or I’ll be some other kind of teacher in a week or so. New methodology in the making maybe? 😉

      1. Actually you’ve taught yourself to ‘let go’. Don’t fight it….just be. Now all you have to do with any trouble at school…is just smile. They will want to get the guys in the white coats…but you will really know you’ve found your nirvana, that head space where it all no longer matters. Just go with the flow mommus, that drifting IS learning to come back inside where your truth is, who you really are within, and it will set you free. Enjoy the ride! Namaste

      2. Now, I’m like that most of the time. Just ask Seangirl! Laid back to the point of horizontal…except…when there’s an accumulation of things or somebody steps on my toes too many times or steps on somebody’s I love or on a kid’s or when I’m watching the news sometimes….OK, maybe not as often as I used to be. 😉 Obviously my laid back self was needing a wee rejuvenation course. But, I have to say, the spaced out chilled out doesn’t usually last so long. Drifting is exactly the way I’d describe it. Like lying on a lilo, letting my mind go. Jeez, wish I could bottle this!

      3. You already have! 🙂 Just put yourself into that space (like when you were on holidays), remember how it felt and why you were in that space. So when your ‘buttons’ get pressed, remember that space and just let the ‘button pressing’ bits go. You will begin to realise that it is only ‘you’ that is keeping those emotions in place. Look at the ‘why’ of how you are feeling and reacting, understand the source of your reaction, whether a fear or feeling, and then let it go. It is now understood and no longer needed to teach, and a healing of that will occur.
        You’ll even really begin to smile a lot, you begin to understand, and everyone starts asking what you’ve been up to 🙂 Questions come up like, are you having an affair? 🙂 But you just realise this IS how life is supposed to be 🙂
        Have a lovely weekend my friend, life IS what we make it, may yours be made of ‘bottled’ bits! 🙂

      4. I’m in trouble. Workmates already think I smile too much at school angst. But this could be fun. I could drive the headteacher up the wall just by smiling more instead of writing everything she says down and nodding sagely! Oh, wait a minute, that’s maybe not where I’m meant to go with this. But I do think I’ll have to try it out for the sake of scientific and spiritual research! It’s important to know the impact of these things, I feel. 🙂
        Now, what I want to know is what do YOU say when folk ask you cheeky questions. Do you just smile and tap your nose and wander off driving them all crazy with frustrated nosiness? Oh, I’m so into this! I’ll practise on my crew first. If only I can get out of this lotus position. 😉

      5. No mommus, sorry to spoil your party that I can feel you playing with 🙂 But the reason for this journey of truth within is to actually find YOU. That beautiful loving heart that is beating all over the place when stressed, changes to a lovely relaxed place within when you remove your fears. You become that smiling, relaxed, loving person AND to achieve it you also come from a place of integrity. Yes it’s fun to play around with your friends, joke and laughter, but if you also don’t do it with integrity, you attract from the universe exactly where you are at. But trust me, even though you might think I’m a party pooper, the integrity you give out is returned, and the feeling is like your ‘good to be bottled’ feeling. Relaxed, comfortable but very much coated with a love that is all around. Very similar to that feeling when you first fall in love. Just floating along, smiling at anything or nothing, it doesn’t matter. And you feel you can do anything, change the world in an afternoon. And its beauty is unparalleled, and that’s only the bit that we feel within ourselves. When you finally touch the perfection of unconditional love…there are no words…none would do it justice. It is in being that truth within, removing those walls of fear, that we begin to feel that beauty, understand how it all comes together, and create the new you.
        They’ll still want to know what you’ve been up to, and I always reply the truth, because unbeknownst to them they can feel your truth, even though they may not understand it, and you will find that they are either attracted to you because of that truth, and they want to be like you, or they will not want to be a part of it because they fear it, because by being with you, unintentionally you are asking them to be their truth as well. But they are afraid and not ready for that yet. You attract different friends and you may lose some as well. But this journey is always about where you are at and what you create for yourself…with integrity…to find that jewel within. And trust me, once found, I know of none that would ever wish to go back to their old way of being. It no longer is a part of who you have now become.
        Um….nearly a post 🙂 I think your right, the detox has been a boon and spirit is sitting on my shoulder. I think it’s time to do the book 🙂
