So here it is the day of Summer Solstice and a stat holiday to boot for Aboriginal Day. Great day to do a bit of dusting and cleaning around the house. The temperature in the shade is reading 26.8 C, I have no clue what it is in the sunshine. We have the softest of breezes that are making all the new leaves whisper. So....what do I do....what everyone would do. I open a few windows to let the nice warm summer air in to make the house smell nice.
That was my first mistake.
Next, I knew I couldn't stay in the workshop ALL day so I went to do a bit of washing and tidying up.
That was my second mistake.
Next, I heard the dogs, Fionn & Ciaran making an awful racket out on the front patio. It seems not only our little squirrel was out there but he had brought a friend along with him. Well, I swear all of the nattering could have woken up the whole neighbourhood. It was so nice out, that I decided it would be a nice break to sit on the stairs and watch the squirrels chase each other in the trees.
That was my third and final mistake.
Off back to the nursery workshop and what did I find there? NOTHING! NOTHING at all. And you ask, what do you mean NOTHING at all. ALL of the faeries had found the open window and out they went to enjoy the day!!
I sit here shaking my head....but it was my own fault!!
LESSON of the day: Little faeries when they don't want to be found...WON'T BE found!
