Six impossible things believed before breakfast

“Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Through The Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll

You may wonder what rock I’ve been living under when I say I’ve never seen a 3D movie, until today. Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. And it was inspiring and motivating and has made me want to draw and create, which is exactly as I’d hoped given I’d wagged from my work this morning to see it. I’m such a visual girl and am always motivated by how things look and I’m looking forward to a very productive time as a result. Put it this way, I had to do a lot of compromising with myself to take the time to see it so I’d better be productive!
Six impossible things I’ve thought of today:
  1. I can’t possibly take the time off to steal away to an early matinee on a school day and see Alice in Wonderland, but I did and it was fabulous!
  2. That I wouldn’t have time to bake some banana muffins with the over-ripe bananas before heading out this morning.
  3. I didn’t think my local chinese grocer would have the pin cushion I’ve been looking for. They did!
  4. I’ll get my 2009 tax return in the post to the accountant today (there’s still time … just)
  5. That I’d find the exact shade of red cotton to make more crochet necklaces
  6. I’ll get a mountain of things made for my markets without procrastination or fluffing.

Beky - Ooo Cant wait to see the film. Like yourself, very visual. I had a request for some Alice in Wonderland Invitations, so I designed some. Check out my blog for the pic.
