thoughts of a butterfly

A few things to report:

1) My relationship with ginger monkey neice is improving. Until now she has let me hold her for about 2 minutes. However, the other day she REQUESTED that I, Aunty Val, give her a bath. That is a ruddy miracle.

2) The Pickerings are up in Sheffield this week-end and I am planning their tea right now. They are pretty scathing about my lasagnes so have opted for beef burgers and sweet potato wedges. I think they will be suitably impressed.

3) Face book is not so bad after all. Is pretty cool hearing from people you have not seen for years. I have now worked out that when you reply to someone you write it on THEIR wall NOT, as I have been doing, on your own wall.

Well this 'post' is not so interesting. Apologies. I am ruddy knackered. I'm not too sure why.

Love Valerie A x (I have started calling myself Valerie rather than Val just for a bit of interest and variety in life)

Ruddy heck. I just re-read my last post and point 4 is a bit deep and sounds depressive. Really I think it was due to pmt, that and being an ENFP perhaps. I think really I am fine.

Another list darn it.

1. Spent last night talking about personalities. I have worked out that I am an ENFP. Since then I have ordered 3 books off Amazon about personality: 'Do what you are', 'Strengths Finder' and 'Nature or Nurture'. WIll review after reading them.

2. Had a week visiting Calne (near Bath), London and Felixstowe (for eccentric uncle's 8oth birthday). Highlights were: a) playing bowls on the green with some elderly gentlemen and Andrew Pickering who is just young b)eating beef and feta cheese stew c)barbeques d) talking to my eccentric uncle. I don't really understand what he's going on about but I like the experience. That reminds me of when I used to hang out a bit with this bloke Nichol who I didn't understand at all. Once I was in a cafe and I had to concentrate so hard on what he was saying that I forgot what I was doing and poured my hot chocolate over the table instead of in to my mouth.

3. Some things I learn't recently are: a) dodos inhabited Maritious, they went extinct when mice and rabbits came along. They couldn't fly and were not eaten. b) flying fish can fly approximately up to the length of a football pitch. They fly away from enemies such as porpoises. (what I learn't from the Horniman museum, London)

4. I feel empty and kind of pointless. It's not so cool and I don't know why it is. Maybe all will become clear one day and I will feel full of life and with point and purpose. I think that would be nice.

And so goodbye. Love Valx
