Why is is?

1. That I seem to have a new obsession each week - this week its paper chase notebooks and stationary generally.
2. That I'm never happy with the bag I use
3. My house is never clean enough, where does all the dust come from
4. My hair is ALWAYS fluffy
5. I can never relax
6. That I worry about my cat like she is a person
7. I get house envy..alot
8. I have to check and recheck doors and windows when I leave the house

....Ummm I'm sure I can think of more....;0)

And I can agree with several on your list!

You sound like you could do with relaxing and enjoying/appreciating what you have. I go through these phases but ever since I decided to just chill out I seem to worry about these sorts of things a lot less. I was looking at your lovely conservatory and thinking how gorgeous it looks. House envy, like it or lump it, gets the best of us! I always see these lovely houses in magazines with perfect kicthens and bathrooms, and get a bit of the green eyed monster. I have neither of these, both need completely gutting, which is the sort of thing that will take us 10 years to save up for. I contacted a couple of magazines to see if they would like to feature our house and got 2 flat nos. One of them said our house 'wasn't what they were looking for'. I wondered if it was the fact that it didn't have an open-plan white kitchen (you know the type that they tell us we must have) and 'space' just incase you need to swing a cat, and all that junk.:-)

I used to work off Tottenham Court Road so I used to pop into Paperchase every day, love that shop. Fortunately, I've not seen one around these parts otherwise I'd be in debt! :-)

You ought to make the bags then you could have a different one every day. Btw, I will post your goodie tomorrow, sorry to keep you waiting. It's been a pain since the village shop shut. :-)

Sending safe thought too.
I agree with everything on the list but not the house thing... I'm happy with my lot, not that it's the best house in the world but it's the first houses we've own & hey at the end of the day it a roof over my head. I do get a bit green when I see lovely things on here though...LOL!
I worry about my cat, she's 19, I keep waking up to check she's still alive... how sad is that! I can't face losing another one. :(

Bagladee said...

I worry about those things too Sam. Here's lots of well wishing thoughts to your other half. Hope he has a safe trip. xx

You stole my "Why is it " list! I can't believe someone else does all those things-well except the fluffy hair-mine is ok for about two hours after drying then it goes it's own way!
ps MY cat is human!

Pink Feather Paradise said...

Your list sounds very familiar... and I will send positive well wishes and love to Uganda... and i was worrying about Mr P going to the states! lol

Your man and mine will be returning home around the same time... the last 2 weeks have flown by so I dare say the next 2 will too!

take care

Hello Sue

Yes I know that feeling, I have a week where I am only interested in cushions, then the next it's something else. There is a bit that us in all of us I think. What a fantastic thing for Mr M to be doing. So rewarding to give up your own time and comfort to help others. Mr M sounds like a very nice person and I can understand that you are very proud of him. I wish him all the best whilst there.
Take care

Hi hun, I can relate to some of those, especially the cleaning thing and house envy. Mine never looks up to scratch to me!

Hope Mr M is safe and well.

I have finished the swap goodies ("bout time", I can hear you thinking!) and wrapped them. I just need to find the sellotape and something big enough to post them in now! Hopefully they will go off tonight.

I go through obsessions too. Last week it was old school felt tips - berol fine tips, I had to buy every colour available.
This week it is ribbon - I mean obsessively buying it in bulk quantities that I'll never use and organising it and even making a log book.

I have house envy too.

Positive thoughts coming your way.

Ugh managed to delete my first post!

Oh and I have a new blog -
