These lists take us to the halfway point of the challenge. My little book is coming together very pleasingly, with lots of pink and yellow, and a load of sticky-outie bits. The sticky-outie bits make me happy. Pretty mess is what I’m all about.

List #11: My best friends

Best girls:

  • Josie
  • Kate
  • Siobhán
  • Lucy
  • Katie
  • Sarah

Fave chaps:

  • Jerry
  • Josh
  • Chris

Oldest mates:

  • Katrina
  • Dylan
  • Bridie

Maybe the idea of best friends is a little high school, but the truth is I do have a special place in my heart for this lot. These are the ones who are always there, no matter what, and who I confide in, trust, and feel safe with. I’m really lucky my list is so long. And I’m very, very grateful for each person on it.

List #12: Things I learned this week

  • Cutting Arty’s hair makes him look like a grown up boy
  • Looney Tunes: Back in Action may be the worst movie ever made
  • When a project isn’t giving you happy feels, it’s totes ok to start over
  • Pink and yellow are my favourite crafting colours
  • I will never love, nor crush on any fictional character the way I do Han Solo.

That final point was precipitated by the discovery of this photo. Excuse me, I need to go lie down.

List #14: Things that confuse me

  • Harshing other people’s squee
  • Mathematics
  • Navigating in the dark
  • Following written instructions
  • The concept of “work/life balance”
  • How a woman can say she’s not a feminist.

I just want everyone to be happy, and not ask me to solve complex problems, mmkay? Meanwhile, how great are those floral alphas? I got them from Typo. They are pretty much doing all the work on this page.

  • The Children’s Book by A. S. Byatt
  • Undine by Penni Russon

  • Green Valentine by Lili Wilkinson

I changed this prompt because my to watch list is pretty short, and I thought this would be more interesting.


P.S. Here are some links to my previous lists:
