Aw - James.

Heard + Seen This Morning.

As I drove into Plympton today, I saw this sticker on the back of a car -

"Dear Lord, Please make me the person my dog thinks I am"

Just loved that!!!!


Then I heard these words at the end of a Jim Reeves song - may be too twee for some people, but they are lovely-

"I love you for a hundred thousand reasons
But most of all I love you because you're you"

I just hope you can wish that to your nearest and dearest.


Then, just as I was thinking of those words, they played the song that I was going to add to my 30 Day MEME - Day 16 - A Song That Makes You Cry (or nearly) ... so, as I have had it thrown at me this morning, I thought I would depress myself again - I truly love the song "In The Wee Small Hours" ... whether sung by Frank Sinatra, or, as in this case, by Carly Simon -

366 MEME - Day 308 - Having Help Sorting Out The Decorations!

I am just starting to get the decortions sorted for Mum and Dad's house ... so I have help!  Some of the house will be done tonight and tomorrow - but the rest won't get done until Christmas Eve.


BTW - The picture of Santa is 80 years old - and Mum has always had it up somewhere in the house - in a minute it will go up in the hall.  


Umm ...

30 Day MEME - Day 19 - A Talent Of Yours

This is going to be one of my shortest posts - as it will be a blank sheet of paper!

I can't ice a cake, but I can cook one OK;  I can't paint ... although love painting a room;  I can't write a book, although a scribbled a few Spuffy fics;  I can't sing, but can play a clarinet ... providing I have music;  I can't play jazz, but can cope with classical saxophone.

So - as you see, the more I thought about it, the more I thought no "talent".

But there again I will admit that one talent I do have is loyalty.   If you are my friend, I will support you.  If I love you, I will help you. 

So it might not be what you were expecting to read, it is a talent (I think) as very few people are supporting and truthful to their friends and family ... as, like most of us, I have been caught on the opposite side of the relationship.

Hope that I can be there for you -  and if ever you need me - just call.

I Am Getting Fed Up!

Yes - annoyed!  I am fed up with having to type the post, post it, then edit to put the paragraphs back in - is it me ... or have LJ finally flipped??
