The dark side of crafting





“Festival Sintra em Flor”: sol, flores, música, alegria, passarinhos a cantar — era tudo isto que queríamos. Mas a minha mãe sempre disse que não se pode ter tudo o que se quer… e desta vez tinha razão. O dia foi difícil: esteve um frio húmido, apimentado por rajadas de vento que não só deitaram ao chão troncos de árvores (!), como o nosso moral. E a cereja em cima do bolo: no regresso, o nosso carro avariou na auto-estrada! Uhhuuu!!

“Sintra in Bloom Festival”: sun, flowers, music, joy, little birds singing — this was everything we wanted. But my mum always said that you can’t have everything you want… and this time she was right. It was a hard day: it was cold and humid and the wind gusts brought down not only tree branches (!), but also our moral. And the cherry on top of the cake: on the way back, our car broke down on the motorway! Uhhuuu!!

    Your display looked beautiful. If I had walked by, I definitely would have stopped & looked (& bought!!) for quite a while. Good for you for putting up with the weather and such :o) Have a good weekend!
