I like to learn more about the people whose blogs I read and I haven't done anything like this in ages, so thought it might be fun.
I can't choose the seats in the cinema - whoever I am there with has to choose, it renders me immobile even having to consider making a selection.
I have a weird thing where I try to make up mathematical equations in my head from the three numbers on a numberplate when I am stuck behind another car in traffic.
I feel great joy when I find a typographical error in a newspaper or a book, it makes me feel as though I am justified in making them if major papers and books read and re-read many times have them. (So if you find any in this post, that's my excuse!).
I don't like cooked fruit in savoury dishes. No Apricot chicken, hawaiian pizza or sweet and sour with sultana's in it for me (YUK!!).
I'll stop now or you might never come back!
I want to be the best parent I can. I know I do a lot of things wrong, and will continue to do so, but I do strive to do things better each day and to not repeatedly make the same mistakes.
I get annoyed by people who wait many years, or try for many years to have a family and then can't wait to shove them into childcare for vast amounts of time or ship them off to kinder/school as quickly as possible.
I think every kid deserves to have people around them who love, support and care for them - and it makes me so sad to think of the number out there who don't have a loving and caring home environment.
When it comes to community, I think it's the country girl in me that makes me want to know my neighbours, to help them where I can, to get to know them as is appropriate.
There's lots we can all do and if everyone did a little it would mean that others don't have to do a lot.
I know time is a valuable resource but I think dedicating some of it to others is invaluable.
