Why do we perceive time speeding up as we get older? Being a bit of a web surfer I searched for an answer to this question. There are answers out there but I’m still no wiser. 😀 What I did find was this poem originally by Henry Twells then adapted by Guy Pentreath.
Here is a collated version of the poem:
When I was a babe and wept and slept,
When I was a boy and laughed and talked,
When I became a youth and grew more bold,
Then when the years saw me a man,
But day by day as I older grew,
Soon I shall find, in passing on,
Will there be anything of me In eternity?
You might be wondering why I was thinking that time is going faster and faster. Well I’m sure it was only a week or so ago that we were celebrating Christmas. Now the supermarkets are full of Easter goodies (terrible – they are so greedy) and blogs are showing easter cards and goodies – that includes mine. 🙂
I found this cute site on Etsy click here. I just HAD to buy the chicken set. I thought they were so cute and also appropriate as it is Oscar’s time and the chickens’ names are Sophia le Hen, Eggory Peck and Cluck Gable – clever hey.
I ordered the templates Saturday and here they are on my blog on Monday. The templates are of very good quality and I think it is worth using heavier weight paper than printer paper. It is suggested you use 200 gsm but I used 190 gsm because I had 1/2 packet at home and didn’t want to buy more – it was fine. When I make more I will ink the edges and add some embellishments but first time I am very pleased with the results.
Bye for now,
