James - thinky thoughts

I don't have work today, and want to get a lot done, but as ever life is conspiring against me!

We had a great day at N&B's (hope to get some pics up later) ... and the boys again borrowed my camera, so hope to do some icons, again, at the end of the month.  Andrew has an amazing "eye" ... he wants to be an engineer though, and has managed to get a work placement for the week at The Formula 1 place near them.  In England all kids do a wekk (or 2) at work at the end of their year 10 to give them some idea of the future.

Dad and I left Church ealy yesterday as he wasn't well - I took him to the doctors and he has Laberynthitis ... so no wonder he felt sick on the journey to Nicks and back.

I had to take Jiffy to the vets this morning.  Marni (his vet) wasn't doing a surgery, as she was operating ... guess which vet he saw ... yes, Marni!!!!  She said she had to see "Sir" ... his ear is now 100%, so that's good.  He's going for a haircut later, which is why they have forecast bad weather for later in the week ... it always happens like that.

I have loads of icons to do, but will get to them later, as I want to get the grass cut, before I head off to the hairdresser with Jiffy.

However before I leave I decided to do this meme, that i snagged from kudagirl -

The Seven Deadly Sins Meme

Day 1 - Pride. Seven great things about yourself.

1.  I am loyal to my friends and family ... totally loyal.
2.  I try never to be late for anything.
3.  I am happy to "follow orders"
4.  I am polite.
5.  I am respectful.
6.  I like to look neat and tidy in my appearance.
7.  I can park a car in a pretty small space!

That was hard to do, as you know I'm not great at self image!

Day 2 - Envy. Seven things you lack and covet.
Day 3 - Wrath. Seven things that piss you off.
Day 4 - Sloth. Seven things you neglect to do.
Day 5 - Greed. Seven worldly material desires.
Day 6 - Gluttony. Seven guilty pleasures.
Day 7 - Lust. Seven love secrets.

Wasn't it difficult to find seven things to be proud of? I had a horrible time with it. I find it hard to really see anything I'm good at since I have a low opinion of myself.

This is not an easy meme. It takes a lot of thought both in finding and wording the answers. I'm such a pessimistic type, the only easy one was things that piss me off. LOL.

Oh yes, finding 7 things that I feel good about, in myself, was almost impossible - I almost gave up ... but I'm toooooooooooooo stubbern for that!

Not sure what illness your Dad has but I hope it´s better now.
I bet this is a hard meme to do, just thinking about things to be proud of in yourself. You have picked 7 great Pride things. LOL at the last, that´s another thing we have in common.

Dad's infection is in his inner ear, so he is sick and giddy - and finding it harder than normal to concentrate - not nice for him.

I found it hard to find some things to feel good about - but I can park a car!!!!

Hope your dad is feeling better.

Thank you - yes, the anti-biotics are already kicking in.

I hope your dad is feeling better.

I'm impressed with being able to park a car in a small space!

Thank you - yes, the anti-biotics are already kicking in.

*g* - well it helps that we have smaller cars here!

I hope your dad is feeling better now, ear problems aren't nice to cope with.

Being able to park a car is a good thing to be proud of - I always end up parked miles from where I want to go to be sure of a nice big space. :D

Thanks Carolyn - he is slowly getting better, although he's still feeling very tired.

yes, parking is something I can do OK - don't know why as it wasn't something we were taught when having lessons ... just luck, maybe!
