Inspired By Madness

Hellllloooooooo my little crunchy nut cornflakes!!!!  MillyTant here.  Thank you sooooooooooo much, Sue for inviting me in as a guest blogger.  She wanted me to write about what inspires me.  Well, at the moment, there is just one thing that inspires me……..MUG RUGS!!!!!  I just can’t get enough of them….It is like feeding a donkey strawberries.  One is never enough.  I go to bed I dream about them,  I go online I look them up, I sit down at the sewing machine, I make them.  I just can’t stop!!!  Not that I would really want to stop.  They are such fun, aren’t they???

Here’s one I finished just last night.

When I get excited about something, I just want to get up and sing about it to the world…Now, some unkind people have said that I have a singing voice that could strip gloss paint off a door, but we know that is just not true, don’t we?

Anyway, back to the subject at hand….When I was a young grrl….not that long ago, really. 😉 …I danced my Saturday nights away with similar minded young ladies to the sounds of Madness.   One could always get a good workout to their songs….nowadays I have to visit the gym six nights a week to get the same effect!!!

I was inspired by a trip down memory lane while listening to them on the CD player to pen new lyrics to my favourite song.  I call it…….ODE TO THE MUG RUG.  I’ve pasted the words below.  I do hope you enjoy it!!!!

 Mug rug, mug rug, making a mug rug

Mug rug, mug rug, making a mug rug
Mug rug, mug rug, it is no humbug, ha-ha
Mug rug, mug rug, it is no humbug, yee-ha-ha-ha

It’s plain to see

I’m making it just for me

Mug rug, mug rug, making a mug rug

Mug rug, mug rug, making a mug rug

I’m about to explain

I’ll make them again and again
All you viral critics you

All you viral critics you

Mug rug, mug rug, making a mug rug

Well if this is a mug rug

Then I know there is no humbug

Life’s gonna be brighter


Life’s gonna be lighter
And you won’t be the one who’s gonna miss out
Oh no, you won’t be the one who’s gonna miss out

Next, I’m gonna make just one for you 

 I hope to see you all again…………soon!!!!! MMMMMMUUWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAHHHHHH MillyTant
