After the post the other day about Ash's antics, Ben reminded me (and we observed) a few things I'd forgotten...
  • Throwing himself headfirst into the bath because he couldn't wait for it to finish filling up
  • Eating Sienna's crayons and pencils
  • Whacking the dvd player until it opens and grabbing the dvd out without being able to see what he is doing (all above his head height)
  • Getting under my desk and unplugging the laptop
  • Sucking in water from his drink bottle and then dribbling it down himself, over and over until he is soaked
Am sure there is more, but that's enough for posterity I think!

The weather here is INSANE. Is currently hailing all over my washing. I really need this to clear up so I can garden on Saturday...

Did a scrap page yesterday, it is a bit girly for me but it worked out quite well. Monochromatic for the FK submission theme. So unusual for me - pink AND all one colour theme.
It even has subtle glitter highlights. Are you shocked?

I did a cute 'inner child' quiz the other day that someone had posted on Blue Bazaar, and apparently my inner child is sad. The description said " You're a very sensitive soul.
You haven't grown that thick skin that most adults have.
Easily hurt, you tend to retreat to your comfort zone.
You don't let many people in - unless you've trusted them for a long time."
Now, I agree that I am very sensitive. Always have been. Has taken a long time but I've pretty much accepted that this is not necessarily a bad thing. And I do keep to myself, generally, but not because I am sad - because I LIKE TO.

I think it is a common misconception that solitude is a bad thing. To some people it probably is, but to many introverts (such as myself), it is a requirement. I know I get claustrophobic at times if, for whatever reason, I have not had any real alone time in awhile. I need solitude to recharge my emotional energies. These does not make me sad (necessarily), though I think very sensitive people are probably more prone to depression / emotional issues than others. I don't know. But I just mean that NOT having solitude would make me depressed just as much as too much solitude would make an extrovert unhappy.

Hmm, maybe introverts think too much ;)
