Why the Poo Man?

Little Bun had a winning raffle ticket at the school Christmas Fair yesterday. On the table were chocs and wine a plenty. She picked a rubbery poo shaped man and is truly delighted with him.


While I was wrapping presents for Santa's Grotto on Friday a couple of gorgeous somethings were delivered that helped make up for the lack of wine and choc.


I hinted to Mr Bun to get me this necklace for christmas. Then I decided it might get sold before he got round to it so I pressed yes please and chucked some vintage terry into my virtual basket too. Maartje (big apologies if I've read your name wrong) over at Silly Old Suitcase writes a lovely happy blog and has various delights for sale in her etsy shop to tempt.


Next package was from Penny who had turned one of her hairslides into a brooch for me. I'm liking yellow right now after declaring who the hell could want to wear yellow.

My hands are slowly practicing making things so hopefully I'll have a bit of this and that to show you next week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend won't you.

  13. Two years ago my adult niece gave us all plastic dog poop as stocking stuffers. We all laughed like hyenas. I guess you either think fake poop is funny or you don't, and our family is obviously not overly sophisticated. :)

    That necklace is perfection!!

  15. To ALL English speaking men, especially Fathers, and those women who say that are “good women”:

    Today in the English speaking world men live in a tyranny they barely perceive.

    Few men know that they can be arrested and jailed based on the lie of a woman.

    Few men know about false rape, sexual harassment and domestic violence allegations.

    Few men know they can have their children, their house, their assets and much of their future income stolen from them merely because of the lie of a woman.

    Few men know that many men pay child support to a women even after it has been proven the child is not his.

    Most men presume that any such stories they hear are the exceptions. They think “if there was a real problem it would be in the newspapers”.

    Like Dominc Strauss Khan or Julian Assange? You can be deprived of your freedoms before any trial takes place based merely on the word of a lying woman.

    Your governments are introducing police states.

    The tyranny of the police states of the English speaking world have been visited on fathers these last 30 years. They are getting rapidly more tyrannical.

    Most men have ignored the warnings of these fathers if not outright hated on them. Many men have called these brave fathers whiners and complainers when they have been warning of criminal activities by the governments.

    There is a war on fathers just like there is a war on terror and a war on drugs. Not many people know about this war or why it is being prosecuted. The media has betrayed us and remained silent on this issue.

    One man who was criminally victimized by the family courts in Ireland and Australia made it his business to discover a remedy, try it out on himself, and write a book about it to help those men less able to help themselves.

    Here is the link to that book.

    http://www.crimesagainstfathers.com/australia/Forums2/tabid/369/forumid/216/scope/threads/Default.aspx

    In this FREE 100 page eBook, which comes with an internet forum and nearly 2 hours of video, you will learn such things as:

    Where do my rights come from?
    How do I claim them?
    How do I exercise them?
    How do I defend myself against my government?
    How do I rescind my consent to be controlled by and subject to the legislation of the government?
    How do I refuse the jurisdiction of the courts of the government?
    How do I end my marriage to the government unilaterally?
    If you still want to be married?
    How can I remarry my wife without the remarrying the government?
    How can we handle disputes in marriages without the family court?
    How can we handle divorce without the family court?

    Through one mans story and the book he produced? You can learn how to avoid the criminal abuse of the family courts as well as any other courts in your country.

    I am one young man who read this book and learned what it has to say.

    I am helping out my fellow men by posting this link to spread the word.

    With so many tens of millions of men having been destroyed by the criminals in the family courts? This may be the most valuable book you will ever read.

    It is yours, free, to do with as you will. This is the result of more than three years effort by the author. He is still taking on the criminals in the courts and more news is to come.

    Believe me. You are very lucky to be reading this post. This might just save your life if you are a young man who does not know about the family courts.

    Tell all your friends. Your governments are committing many crimes. It is time to protect yourself from your governments.

    This book shows you how to do this.

    Thanks for listening.

  17. oh the poo man - why do children have to do it? I know ours, though much younger, would be attracted to him too ... despair !!! Then there's Mr H going around teaching nieces and nephews about Mr Hanky the Christmas poo .... I totally despair at it all !!
    But your necklace and fabrics are oh so pretty and they are a delight to the eye :-)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
