but anyways...the lists...the lists!! I really haven't changed since I was at school, I'm still always just a bit late with everything! Last weeks list prompt from Moorea Seal was to "List Your Greatest Comforts". I've really been enjoying writing these lists, I'm not a list making type of person but there is something quite therapeutic about sitting down and being a little introspective for a time.
My list was:
Sitting in the warm glow of a fire
Fluffy Slippers and new socks
Losing myself in a good book
Getting into a freshly made bed
To lay in the shade of a tree on a hot summers day (we do get the odd one ib Cornwall!)
Breakfast in bed and an undisturbed lie-in (a RARE treat indeed!)
The smell of Sweet peas, Rose Geranium and Jasmine.
and...a long hot bath!
This weeks prompt is to "List the things you should be proud of"The aim being to "List your efforts, your best qualities, your dreams and hopes, how you learned from a hard situation, and anything else that helps you recognize that you have reason to be proud of yourself."
I am going to write it now..as I sit here blogging.....sometimes it's fun to see what pops into your head!
Giving birth to my children at home (I was very fortunate and lucky)
Raising my two bright, beautiful and spirited children (and just about keeping sane)
Having the confidence to promote and sell my work
Getting my Degree in Applied Psychology
Keeping a very calm and cool head in some times of major crisis (then falling apart a bit later on!)
Helping my friends and family through some very demanding and traumatic times
Learning new skills and finding new inspiration and creativity each day
My ability to use humor and make others laugh, even in pretty dire situations
My ability to see the best in people and my desire to help others
My home cooking and preserve making...I'm getting the hang of it now!
well I think that's it...are you still there?? It was a long wordy post I know! I feel very self indulgent just rambling on about myself but I guess that's what I mostly do in this here blog space! I do recommend you have a little go with the list making!
Well, I've got to run..
thanks for visiting me!
Love Lisa...the Dotty one
and THANK YOU for the flowers dear friend!! A lovely burst of colour on such a gloomy old day!
