Okay, so, first I'll lull you into a false sense of normality. Look at this beautifully colourful and restful-looking chair. Doesn't it just make you want to sit there and read, or crochet?
Yes, it makes me want to too. But I can't. Because I have TOO much going on.
Now I know that a lot of you who come here do so for the happiness and colour. Well, okay, look at the picture above.
Okay, ready? I really need your help!!!!!!!!
I have been thinking too much and I can't do it anymore. My head is about to explode. I have discovered something. There are no NEW ideas. There are no words or names that haven't been thought of ALREADY!!!!!!!!!
Okay, deep breaths!!!!
I will explain........ it has been brought to my attention as I get my various projects onto a more business-like (ha, ha!!!!) footing, that a similarly-named set of creatures to my Pipples is currently on the telly and since I don't have any children under 5, I had no idea. It isn't the same name, just sounds similar and begins with the same 3 letters.
I have sought advice and it will cost something to use any option other than to CHANGE THE NAME!!!! Yes I know!!!!!!!!!
I love the Pipples and their name. I love Pipple World and Pipplepost and everything!!!! (sobs like a snotty child).
BUT I don't want to pay or fight, so since they are quite new, okay, I thought to myself, I'm a creative person, I'll just think of something else.
I have thought for 3 weeks, I have put words into google a million times and found other people have thought of it or something similar, because you see, this time, it has to be UNHEARD of, nothing similar, nowhere!!!
I have discovered wordoid which is actually quite addictive, and makes up new words, but haven't found anything that sounds like these little creatures.
On top of all this, my eldest has now got shingles and is in loads of pain, and its Flossie's 10th birthday tomorrow so I have to make a giant Jaffa cake (don't even go there!!!!!! I'll show you tomorrow if, IF it works!)
So, my wonderful bloggy friends, I DO apologise if you were checking in for a bright and colourful start to your week. You might want to go and get a cup of tea, like I'm going to!!!
I will leave you with a picture of the begging, beseeching soon-to-be-not Pipples. I have set up a competition on the pipple blog to think of a name. The winner will be able to choose one of these little creatures to come and live with them.
How could you choose?!!!! xxxx
Will return tomorrow fully bright and cheerful now I've had my rant. Thanks for listening, you're the best!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
