(Un)important Things

I'm actually secretly rather glad that Squirrel Queen, author of three lovely blogs called The Road To Here, Through Squirrel Eyes and The Chase For Baja, tagged me in her post of the same title as it made a welcome break from cleaning my apartment from top to bottom (I still haven't finished, that's how much there is to do!)

I actually deliberately stayed away from the computer from Monday night until now in order to get it done.... so I have no posts in mind for today and am actually very glad that Squirrel Queen has given me a ready-made post to put up! Unless you want to hear all about my cleaning exploits that is.... but of course I'm sure you don't.... (on the off-chance that anyone actually does.... sprinkling a liberal amount of bicarbonate of soda in my oven and scrubbing with a wet sponge scourer worked a treat. Ha! The green lobby are gonna love me!)

Here are the 3 rules:

A. Mention the person who tagged you.
Just did. See above.

B. List six unimportant things that make you happy.
Hmmm, that's not easy, there are so many. OK, here goes....

1. Cups of tea - obviously. With plenty of milk. Although hot chocolate is a good substitute. Actually, make that chocolate in general!
2. Sunshine and blue cloudless skies - like today! I'm not a great photographer but I took this photo on my iPhone today to share with you all:

3. Watching "The Apprentice" with boyfriend (UK version - haven't seen the US version). It's the only TV show I bother to watch.
4. The smell of parks and gardens just after the summer rain has fallen and the sun has come out.
5. Singing. And karaoke with friends (don't knock it till you've tried it!) I can't sing for toffee though, so that's not a potential career-change option.
6. Pressing or pushing buttons (just don't ask.... it'll take too long to explain)

C. Tag six blogs, state the rules and notify them with a comment on their blog.
Hmmmm, this is again a hard one. Can't I do what Squirrel Queen did and just tag everybody?

I'll try and nominate different blogs this time for people to visit....

1. The 1,000,000 Project (sorry, I know I've just nominated you for an award - I just thought you'd enjoy doing this one!)
2. accidentally, kle
3. Serendipitous Freelance Writer
4. Musing
5. RoRo Fusion
6. Live Write Dream

Right, I have to go, "The Apprentice" is on at 9pm so I've only got a couple of minutes.... Will post tomorrow, see you all!

  1. Good list of unimportant favorites, sunshine and blue cloudless sky, unlike today, is one of my favorites.

    It's hard picking a small group when you want to pick everyone, I had to break tradition just once (or maybe twice, or . . .)


  2. Love the pic! You are a better photographer than you let on. Thanks so much for the tag!

  3. Hahaha! Of course I don't mind! You're right - I do enjoy these things! ;D

  4. Ooh this is a good one! Thanks for tagging me! x

  5. Hiya guys, thanks again for all your lovely comments!

    Squirrel Queen:
    If it makes you feel any better, today is cloudy and miserable and looks like it's going to rain :-)

    Thanks, but I really am not a good photographer! Although it has to be said that the iPhone's not great for taking pictures anyway....

    1,000,000 Project:
    I thought you'd like it :-) Enjoy!

    My pleasure - hope you enjoy it too :-)

  6. Great photo! I suspected you were being too modest when you said you weren't a good photographer, and now I have proof that I was right :)

    I'm with you on 1,2,4 and 5; as for 6 I'll refrain from commenting ;)

  7. Thanks Becky - and no I'm not being modest - I took countless photos of the sky before I found one that I thought was worth putting up :-)
