Your bearded what???

Yesterday, we went to a friends place in the afternoon. Cabin fever was making everyone act in a somewhat agitated manner and no one was playing nice anymore AND it is STILL raining! (thanks to every ones kind sympathy yesterday, driveway is not as bad as we thought- thanks to Super Bob Cat Man ....We aren't the only ones getting a little overwhelmed to say the least, Chef saw someone in town and they said they saw their neighbour walking in the pouring rain with just tshirt and shorts on and yelled out to him "Are you ok?" his reply 'Just had to get outside. 3 children. Unfinished house. Pregnant wife. ' 'nuff said.

Anyway we went to a friends place and she disclosed that she thought My Bearded Pigeon was some private joke between Chef and I , some secret euphemism for.... well it isn't. But speaking of My Bearded Pigeon a while ago I was contacted by a stylist to see if she could use my butterfly brooches for a photo shoot for Country Style.
Here it is, The green and black butterfly even made it onto the editors page and is also on the subscription lift out. Seems to have worked as someone bought 9 brooches the other day!

So excited to see My Bearded Pigeon name in PRINT!!!! EEEEEEeeeeeee!!!!!!!
Now back to praying for rain respite.When will it stop???
