rolleyes.gif Can anyone remember being told about cotton wool clouds? Or was my mother just having me on ?

She used to tell me if I searched long and hard enough ,I would find my fate in them . Who I would marry , the face of the one you loved . if you would travel and so forth .

Well, today was a lovely day with lots and lots of fluffy clouds all around .So I sat outside the front door and stared at the changing formations .

Hoping , I think to see Jean's face or something to tell me she was allright .

I saw ships ,planes , even a flying saucer ,but nothing to tell me my fate or fortune .

Still I cant give up on this . I am sure my mother actually believed it herself . I will keep searching among the clouds .Just in case.

heres a wee pic for u tommy biggrin.gif
Can I tell you a lovely wee story (true) about clouds?

When my daughter was 2 1/2 our beloved dog died. It was a glorious summer day and there were lots of big fluffy clouds in the sky. As we walked along our street to the shops, Kirsty looked at me (I was obviously looking sad, as I was thinking about Ben not being with us, for the first time ever) and said, "Don't be sad, Mummy. Look up there. You can see Ben," and she pointed to one of the big white clouds - and there indeed was our Old English Sheepdog, Ben, in amongst them!

Yes, you can see things in the clouds, bigtommy. You keep looking - Jean is there, looking down at you. rolleyes.gif
