Tagged. By chrish of Home Thoughts Weekly. 7 words which describe me....
Patient: Very - and in those rare moments when I'm not I manage to keep mum about it.
Kind. I think I am. I would never, ever, pull the legs off flies or deliberately elbow old ladies. Here - have my last Rollo. A little kindness and its bedfellow, consideration, never goes amiss.
Idle? Oh yes. Very. The urge to do the ironing is easily resisted and I can watch the dust bunnies bowl around the floor for hours. Exercise? No thanks.
Curious - What's round that corner? What does that mean? Where and Why? What's over the page? At the bottom of that box? This has led to all sorts of serendipious discoveries and occasionaly the ability to get to grips with the unexpected. Trespass? Moi? If you want someone to creep round a spooky building, alone at dead of night, just ask.....
Unfortunately my curiosity doesn't extend to things mathematical of scientific. In that respect I remain dumb and virtually innumerate - can just about add up the spots on the dominoes and do Sudoku, which seems to involve logic and the ability to count up to 45.
Creative - Give me colours, marks, lines and words, scraps of fabric, lumps of clay or a camera and I couldn't be happier. I love the process of making 'stuff' look harmonious or discordant - could spend hours deciding where to put a dot on a piece of paper. Sometimes better at ideas than actually carrying them out though - my head has done them and raced on to the next big thing. Somebody else can carry out the finickety detail.
Laid-back (hyphenated to make one word.) An irritating trait, but the more wound up those around me become the more relaxed my stance. My ex-boss at work worried himself into a grey rag about insignificant trivia while I lolled back muttering 'Chill'. Generally it paid off.
Positive - For me the proverbial cream jug is always half-full. (My husband would describe the milk jug as half-empty.) I see cream. He sees watery milk. I've never seen the point of meeting problems half way and have always, and perhaps annoyingly, looked on the bright side.
......Crikey this has been hard work. I'm going for a little lie down.
