Donkey Logic

So I was browsing through some of my old posts when I came across one that I would like to re-share with you all, before I share my recent craziness.

Donkey Logic
One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well.
The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him.
They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey realised what was happening and cried horribly.
Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well.
He was astonished at what he saw.
With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.
Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.
The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.
Each of our troubles is a steppingstone.
We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up!
Shake it off and take a step up

 Please hold this donkey story in your heart for those bad days -

Now the crazy stuff :-p

I have been quite busy with my sewing machine recently.
My lovely friend Dawn had picked a beautiful dress and a couple of waistcoats from a Bridal shop. She had taken her dress home but was due to pick up the waistcoats at a later date. Unfortunately the shop had a fire.
So for some mental reason she asked me to make them for her. Well, I agreed to make them. I figure I am a slightly masochistic person, so the terror of making her the waistcoats was to much to resist.

And when they went to get their suits, they took the waistcoats with them
I was as pleased as them, when the waistcoats fitted so nicely.

I've never been confident about my own abilities but I have never let that stop me from trying. I guess that's my donkey logic.
To put the icing on the cake, I made myself a new dress too
If I'm feeling brave enough I shall get my hubby to take a pic of me wearing it. (no promises)

I will keep shaking it off and stepping up, I hope you will too
Back soon with more craziness
Buffy xx
