What to do this weekend.....

Well it is rather on the cold side this weekend, the Mr is working and my parents have taken the madam for today so I thought I might have a bit of an adventure. You know the sort of adventure that you can have with a wine, or cuppa, in hand next to the warmth of the heater and it doesn't cost a cent......

First I would start here because they are such a cool family it makes me want to actually develop the ability to sew more than pin cushion and move to France - and they look like they have the coolest home!

Then I would love to catch up on some talks from here - you know the talks that you only get to see a little bit of or read the explanation before the call of "MUM"....well lacking in Madam today I may indulge.

I may call over and check out the August break photos from Boho Girl - cause you know they are always food for my soul.

Then for a second serve of soul food I will pop in on Susannah Conway

For the grand finale I will take my adventure here great writing, great photography, wonderful family and a rockin album to boot.

Have a good weekend!

Quirky Girl

When I saw this challenge over at Blog This I thought it was right up my ally. It isn't that I am completely nuts but i do have a few quirks. I never really noticed my quirks until the madam became old enough to mimic me. There is nothing like seeing yourself through a small persons eyes - the good, the bad and the ugly......

I don't know why, how or when it even started but everyday, actually twice a day, I read the toothpaste tube whilst I brush my teeth. I read it all, every time. I am not sure why, especially as after a certain time I know what it says, but I do. It does not make my purchase or use of toothpaste change or change anything but it is a quirky thing I do.

I also put my scissors and any other sharp kitchen instrument anywhere but the second draw. My sister and I had a friend a long time ago who said you should always hide/change the place of things like that because if someone broke in and was looking for a 'tool' that is the first place they would go. every night before I go to bed I check the draw and if I get up to go to the Madam during the night I check it again.

My third but by no means last quirk is socks. I hate them. They hate each other. The washing machine eats them. When my mum comes over she often ends up folding them for me. i don't care if I wear odd socks - no one sees them. the Mr on the other hand thinks he should always have twenty pairs of socks in his draw and it is a crime against civilisation if they are not perfectly matched. So everyday I fold one pair of perfectly matching socks and then I give up look at my odd ones and laugh.

So....what are the quirky things you do? If you are not ready to fess up pop on over to Blog This and check out some other quirky people....I am in rather good company.
