What a day!

Phew! What a day! What a super response from you all. I read the thirty I know about last evening - and they were so very interesting. Thank you so much to all you wonderful bloggers out there. Incidentally - as several people have asked - no I did not intend it to be every Wednesday - as far as I am concerned it was a one off.
There were so many highlights for me that it is impossible to select any one inspiration - there were dads, mums, friends, teachers, books, artists, poets,religions, nature, musicians, animals, rainbows, clouds, mountains, Christmas - a huge list. But judging from the super write-ups then they had all certainly inspired.
If I had to choose really lovely ones, then I do recommend, if you haven't already done so, that you read gleaner-of-possibilities inspiration about a little African refugee child; Melrose Musings story of a dear old friend is also very moving. Various embroiderers amongst you mentioned Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, their work, their sketchbooks and their books - that is a subject close to my heart too.
But really, you all did splendidly well and reading you all was in itself an inspiration.
Building work here is gathering pace - everywhere is dust - I can't find anything - the dog is totally confused - and I have friends for lunch! So shall sign off with another big thankyou!

Our son says I'm neglecting Buster's blog.......
Still hot and sticky here.
Best wishes to the farmer and Tess.

Thank you for your visit. I am afraid I haven't had much time to think about inspiration this week. It has been a busy week, with guests and next week I will be on a short holiday to Friesland. I don't write this on my blog, because there is a lot of burglary going on. Anyway: people like you inspire me writing entries!

Hi

So sorry I wasn't able to take part in this. I would have loved to have been involved but have been manically busy with the day job and book reviews over last couple of days.

We all enjoyed taking part Weaver. I am sure your friends will enjoy your company and their lunch and not give two hoots for the builders' muddle and dust. Think ahead to how lovely it will be when it is all done.

Weaver it was a fun day in bloggy world. Such a diverse range of inspirations from all different places. Was great to meet many fascinating people. Thank you for your kind words - I'm delighted to know others found my inspiration enjoyable - if only he knew he was the subject of a story, I'm sure his joy would be the same as he has for his bike.

A clever and very appropriate slant on a wonderful old guy. Loved it.
