A spot of self-examination.

Day two –  write a list

Things I’m Good At

Thinking of a witty comeback about five minutes after it is required in a conversation.

Being by myself, I can keep myself amused for hours as long as I have different things to do or distract me.

Trying new things – this is a recent development, mostly spurred from being forced to try things I didn’t previously like; food being the main perpetrator. Until recently I didn’t like fish, any fish, especially not shellfish. Now it feels like a mini adventure every time I try something new, even when its scallops.

Making dirty dishes disappear – I will be sat reading and I will have finished my dinner with the plate still in front of me and elves will come and make it disappear before I finish my chapter.

Public transport – I am fine with most modes, especially my own to feet, mostly anything that means I don’t have to worry about trying to park my car, especially if the word reverse applies to the type of parking.

Forgetting things – If they made an award for this I’d be well decorated. I have been numerous books on memory improvement, but I forget to read them. I much prefer total ignorance or the scraps of paper and post-its that follow me around.

Being childish – if you require someone to randomly sing songs at you from children’s TV shows/movies circa 90’s, someone to quote Disney lines at you, someone to throw a tantrum at you or someone to colour or paint with…I’m your girl.

Getting lost – whether it’s in a good book, in life, in the city I have lived in for most of my life (surprisingly, thank goodness for Google Maps), in new places, in a conversation. I have managed to hone it into a fine art.

Wine – I am very good at drinking wine, I still need to get a handle on some of my behaviours and some of the words that slip out of my mouth after the drinking though.

Procrastination – I have exceptional talent for this, I have even got to the stage where I will do the dishes before doing the thing that needs to be done and you know how difficult that is with all the crazy elves around here.

book mad and generally creative
