O Inspiration, wherefore art thou?

Inspiration, I have been searching for you, for a couple of weeks now. You are the expert of hide and seek but it's time now for you to come out of hiding and play with me.
You weren't here on the jewellery mannequins, but I do intend to come back here for another look.
I was sure that I had caught a glimpse of you, with these collaged backgrounds, but it wasn't to be.

Even the family have been out searching on my behalf - yes things are getting a bit desperate.

I got lost myself in this pile of books and magazines.

You weren't at the bottom of the Curry Egg Dip but the recipe is worth sharing (see below) for other lovers of curried egg.
So dear Inspiration, please feel free to do the big reveal to me very soon - (or even sooner) - it would be appreciated because I miss you!
Curried Egg Dip
250g cream cheese, 1/2c mayonnaise, 1/2c whipped cream, 30g butter, 1 small onion, 3 rashers bacon,
2 tspns curry powder, 1 tsp mustard, 1 tsp paprika, 3 hard boiled eggs, salt & pepper
Beat cream cheese until soft, add mayonnaise and cream.
Heat butter in pan, add finely chopped onion and paprika. Saute gently until onion is tender - allow to cool.
Add bacon mixture to cream cheese mixture and mix well with the chopped boiled eggs.
Season to taste.
(Serve with a crusty loaf, carrot & celery sticks or crackers)

Inspiration is a cheeky monkey - and can be as tricky as Peter Pans shadow. The best way to make it come to heel and lurk by your side is to make something that you have made before - your hands are crafting but because it is familiar you don't have to think too hard about it which gives your brain the space it needs to wander but because you are being creative, your ideas will naturally flow in a creative direction and before you know it Inspiration will be your new best friend. Wow, I typed that without taking a breath! If you build it, it ("they" really but that doesn't work here!)will come.

It will come and find you when you least expect it. The trick is to stop looking!
