Life This Week #23

Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.
Life this Week

It was half-term this week so there wasn't that much on at work - no seminar, and the only proper meetings I went to were planning committee on Tuesday and Cwmbran Community Council on Wednesday. The fate of the playschemes was decided at the latter; you can read more about it HERE.

On Thursday we went on a community litter pick, and then we had Labour branch AGM. I didn't want to be secretary anymore because it's a hassle with so many members not being on email - you either have to find the time to deliver agendas, or the money to post them. Anthony's going to do it now instead! :D

This Week, I 'Ave Been Mostly...

☆ READING: Cracked Online.


WATCHING: Porridge. I love that show!

☆ LISTENING: Very High and Mighty - a song from Rainbow about Bungle getting above himself. I feel like I've heard it about 4000 times this week.
☆ WEARING: Make up for the first time in ages!

☆ EATING: Anthony made some gumbo last night but I didn't like it. It just tasted like prawns in stew to me. :(

☆ REVIEWING: Nowt this week.

On the Blog

I've joined up with three lovely ladies to co-host the Friday Frivolity linky - it's open until Monday so if you have a post, new or old, that is fun, happy, or generally positive please link it up! :) I continued on with my Mountfield Doll House series, and wrote about my history in fandom for International Fanworks Day.

I had another guest post go live this week too, all about my doll house and miniature collecting hobby for Mummy 2 Monkeys. Other than that, I did some prettying up of my blog code, adding share and follow buttons to the post footer and making the new posts, old posts and home buttons clearer. I even got around to updating my About Me page.

  1. I don't think gumbo is very good either. I dunno. Maybe I just haven't had a good plate of it myself.

  2. GOOD QUOTE. I agree that the way we react and respond does affect things a lot. Angela from Daysinbed via #candidcuddles

  5. Seemed like a busy week for you! Lovely quote! so true, most of the time how we react to things is over the top even the most simplest things in life. By the way, Thanks for linking up with #candidcuddles this week.

  6. A great quote, how we react also tells us lots about ourselves, if we take the time to reflect. I know that I have definitely changed my attitude after a big dose of self awareness! X

  7. So true, how we handle ourselves in different situation defines us as people. Sound like a fun week.
