Hoping To Change

Bohoberry Challenge Day 14: Hoping To Change
Well, considering that our lives are in the hands of those who think they know best, I’m not sure right now. I don’t want to change. I want to stay European. I’m not a very political animal but this particular issue just has too many complications not to be concerned. Yes, I’m talking the dreaded ‘B’ word. Goodness knows what tomorrow will bring.

  • A back tickle
  • Ink on virgin white paper
  • Sunflowers and Snowdrops
  • Strictly Come Dancing

  • I am too Idealistic
  • I am too Sensitive
  • I am too Self Conscious

Top Three Strengths


And my top three strengths? At times I wonder if I’m strong at all, but of course we all are some of the time, otherwise what would be the point. So, I am Trustworthy, Creative and Determined (some might say Obstinate 😋

Top Three Values



My top three values are Benevolence, Freedom and Security, all of which have been tested somewhat over the last couple of years. Loved this, albeit surprising, quote from Elvis, which rings very true don’t you think?
