a day late and a trifle short.



imagine my surprise 

when i found out

that the party i was going to tonight

at my sweet irish friend’s house

had already happened last night


 when i stopped over today

 it looked like

a great time was had by everyone 

especially those who were there on the right night.

  1. Oh dear Beth, at least you arrived in time to wash the dishes 😉

    We must have experienced the same time warp. A couple of years ago I woke up with a start from an afternoon siesta. The alarm clock said seven. Panic ! I quickly got ready, present in hand I walked to the evening party venue and became totally confused as the sun was coming up over the mountains. Oh dear, it was 7:30 AM on the day of the party. At least I didn’t miss it as I arrived on time that evening. ❤

  2. I know you hated missing a great party…I can’t believe that happened…OMG…you must have been SOOOOO surprised. Aw. I’m sorry you missed it. Have a fabulous christmas week…and I hope your sink is never filled with that many dishes at once…especially from the night before. 🙂

  3. OMG, this is the way I often “roll,” Beth! I feel very good driving up to where I think I belong and feel, “Oh good! I am ahead of time!” (Then feel dismayed at being late. . .)
    My kids have texted me more this past year, “Don’t forget this or that. . .” 😀

  4. Sorry to hear you missed the shenanigans, but sounds as though you and your friend had a great time anyway. And dare I say it will be Christmas all over again sooner than you expect.
