    You could frame your best drawings [that you did whilst attending your art classes] and put them on your walls. Instead of leaving them on a shelf to gather dust, corral them and showcase them! You’ll be glad you did. This could also go for other special drawings/letters/postcards. It would be a way to enjoy your sentimental items and have others…[Read more]

  • You’ll definitely get back into riding your bicycle, SpinningJen. Unfortunately for me I can’t, as there are no cycle tracks and it isn’t safe to ride around town. It is a shame. I loved riding as a kid. Still, I have my memories.

    When you do get around to riding, don’t forget to wear your helmet! Not to be patronizing, but it is really important…[Read more]

  • You’re right, SpinningJen: my sister’s handbag was better to have been left at the house rather than lost.

    It’s interesting to read about your greenhouse: how many plants do you have? Is it a year round hobby/profession?

    It isn’t Sunday, but Wednesday. I have put on a load of laundry am drinking my caffetterie coffee. I have my routine.

    Have a nice day!

  • Wearing my beautiful summer shoes!

    I suppose when it comes to drawing and painting, everyone has their own style: a painting or drawing doesn’t have to be done in a professional way. It can be expressive and an emotional outlet. It definitely isn’t a competition for someone to do artwork: it can be done for fun.

    But your artwork, SpinningJen, is professional. I think your work is…[Read more]

  • How have things panned out now, psychmommy19?

  • I don’t like heights myself, SpinningJen: they freak me out. I can sit on an airplane. I can go in a lift. But I cannot climb a ladder or look down a cliff without fear. I just imagine myself falling. I am not massively afraid, but I am nervous.

    Anyhow, it’s good that you’re into outdoor activities: they can be so much fun. I remember as a little…[Read more]

  • That makes sense, SpinningJen: shopping on a Sunday can be the best day to do it.

    Funny story: on Sunday [the day of my thread] my sister and I drove to the supermarket. We were just out of the car when she realized she had not brought along her handbag. So, we had to drive back to the house and then back to the supermarket. We just laughed about…[Read more]

    I have given my bathroom and kitchen a clean today. It is nice to have a hygienic home.

    Anyhow, I have gotten rid of around 30 CDs that I just never listen to. It is a relief to have them gone: as awful as that sounds. I have also sorted my DVD shelf. I have kept a few: they are classics and other people I know may want to watch them. I…[Read more]

  • What are you up to? I’m browsing on my computer and drinking a cup of coffee. I have put on a load of laundry, too.

    How is your Sunday going?

  • You’re absolutely right, cassandra: you don’t need to see other places when you’ve got everything where you are already.

    I shall be clearing out my kitchen cupboards today. I love having a sort-of show-like home! Still cosy, though, and still stylish with personal touches. I don’t like clinical, bland designs and because of this had my apartment painted peach: it’s a gorgeous colour. I have white painted bedroom walls and a pink carpet, too. It really is lovely.

    I…[Read more]

  • I second SpinningJen: slow is best. Boring but true. For weight to stay off, it has to come off slowly. Yes, there are millions of diet pills, diets, meal replacements, etc. But the weight just comes back on again. Plus, you need food for your body to work and do all its processes correctly. Not to be gruesome but your blood needs food to give you…[Read more]

  • I love food! Screw the diet: eat that veggie burger!

  • How are things now, psychmommy19?

  • Even though I [mostly: within reason] go for what I want, I still feel envy of those with more. Do any of you ever feel that? Seeing someone branch out and live a happy life IS wonderful – and I would never take it from them – but I can sometimes feel a pang of jealousy.

    Basically, if you’re jealous, how do you deal with it? Do you get bitter and…[Read more]

  • Ireland is incredibly beautiful. My dad and I go driving around Co Mayo and Galway: plus other places. We often stay with my aunt there. She has a lovely bungalow and a hoard of wild cats, which she feeds every day with cat food, dry cat food, bread and milk: they love it. They are not allowed in the bungalow, though. Anyhow, we once went driving…[Read more]

    Drawing and painting is a specialized skill, SpinningJen, that many people don’t have. A lot of people think anyone can draw & paint, but I don’t think that’s true. Now, you can, but some people out there couldn’t do your work. I do think you’ve got a lot to be proud of and should consider showcasing your work: online and IRL.

    It is something to…[Read more]

    I have always fantasized about working in computing and advertizing. I love writing text on the computer and just being creative [on the computer]. I love selling things to people and using social media. I am a media mongrel. But I work at a charity and have had a dabbling in publishing, so I haven’t done badly at all.

    Anyhow, social media is my…[Read more]

    I have more cleaning to do. This includes checking there is no mould [yuck] and just giving a thorough hoover around my apartment. I air out my home daily, so that’s no problem. I would like a cordless hoover, as they’re easier to use. I promise myself I will buy one soon.

    Anyhow, spring cleaning in a good idea any time of year. I love having a…[Read more]
