Falling Forward

Day 16

day 16- another picture of yourself

A favourite, taken at a wedding in May. My hair is substantially longer now (Which I think Q is enjoying, given that it was his idea I grow it in the first place) but the cheek remains the same. Plus it’s one of the Cowboy’s favourites, and I’ve sorely neglected him of late!


I hope everyone has a wonderful new year, whatever you’re planning on doing. Q and I are going to stay in, snuggled under the duvet watching films and trash tv with enough chocolate to bury us. Fun!

Love to you all. Here’s to 2011!


Day 15

day 15- put you ipod on shuffle: first 10 songs that play

1. The Fray - Unsaid
2. JLS – Only Tonight*
3. Beyonce – Freakum Dress
4. Quiet Company – On Husbands & Wives
5. Thievery Corporation – Liberation Front
6. V V Brown – Crying Blood

7. Take That – Today I’ve Lost You*
8. Paul Simon – Crazy Love Volume II
9. Broken Social Scene – Bandwitch*
10. Razorlight – Golden Touch

Bold songs are ones I actually don’t mind. Not a bad mix considering I haven’t updated this iPod in a long time. (In fact, it’s been languishing in my car since I moved to Cardiff and I’ve only just retrieved it).

* I have no idea what these songs sound like, I don’t recognise them at all!


Grace In Small Things – The Winter Edition

Posted by in Grace In Small Things, Projects

(see previous lists here)

  • Crunching on new snow. An oldie, but a goodie.
  • The small click of the Kindle’s* ‘next page’ button.
  • Christmas chocolate. Even tho it’s the same as regular chocolate it just tastes better.
  • Mulled cider. Nom.
  • Cuddles in bed on a day off from work.

*Yes, Q broke down and got me a Kindle for Christmas – mostly to stop me whining so I think. Did I ever mention how much I love him?


Day 14

day 14- a picture of you and your family

This is my family. My sister, my mum and my dad. My sister drives me crazy at times and I could have cheerfully slapped my mother a few times during my childhood but now that I’m older I don’t think I’d swap them for anything.

We all fit together I love them, flaws and all.

Day 13

day 13- a letter to someone who has hurt you recently

Gosh. I’m not sure if I want to go down this route. I’m trying to be a more positive person (stop laughing, Hornblower!) and the people who have hurt me already know it and know it well.

I’ve been fortunate this year. I’ve gained many new friends and lost few, which is always something to be grateful for. My family and I are on an even keel, something we’ve struggled to achieve for years. The people who no longer make me happy have no place in my life and it has made me a much happier person to just try and let it go as often as I am able. (Don’t get me wrong, I’m not perfect. But I’m suceeding more than I’m failing.)

I’m not going to write this letter, instead I’ll just be thankful that the number of people I could write it to are mercifully small.
