11 Commandments of 2009

Thou shalt have fun, above all - Fun is more important than funny.

Thou shalt laugh at thyself -The truly enlightened take themselves lightly.

Thou shalt go the extra smile - A consistent smile affirms friends and confounds enemies.

Thou shalt listen - Listen with your heart as well as your ears.

Thou shouldst expect the unexpected - Embrace surprises as opportunities.

Thou shalt challenge all assumptions - The difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

Thou shalt welcome thy mistakes - Perfectionism is a killer.

Thou shalt forgive often - It is the only way to be free.

Thou shalt remain focused, but flexible - Hold fast to principles, but be open to many paths.

Thou shalt celebrate everything always - Celebration increases gratitude.

Thou shalt not buy dessicated coconut - There's already enough in the pantry for a life time

Oh dear, I love your blog! What a wonderful layout! Maybe someday when I grow up I'll be able to blog like this!! May I put you on my friends list so I may keep coming back? Also, may I use your commandments on my blog? Super start to the new year!

Happy First Birthday Harry,may you have a long and blessed life.

Oh I love to shop with my daughter, she takes me to shops I would never go on my own and we giggle like a couple of teenagers (she will be 34 later this month). Sadly she works long and hard holding down two jobs to pay a mortgage on a city appartment all alone, so our days out together dont happen often enough.

Just realised the above post should have been the comment below (put it down to age lol)) anyway correct comment for this one should be how much I love the design you are doing it looks so pretty and I am wondering who the designer is so I can peep at what it will be like when its finished.

Have a happy Easter.
