Brought to you by the letter L
This letter meme has been making the rounds, 10 things you love starting with a particular letter. Chris from book-a-rama was nice enough to send me the letter L. Anyone else want to play along and I'll give you a letter to do on your own blog. Or leave your list in the comments!
Love - Especially with Valentine's Day so near it's good to be appreciative of the love. N and I are going out to a Thai restaurant for dinner. No presents this year. What's everyone else doing?
Laughter - My favourite sound in the whole world is when Elliot starts laughing and then Joshua starts laughing with him and they keep feeding off each other's laughter, so much that *I* start laughing. They're usually laughing at me though.
Lists - Oh, lists of any kind. To-do lists, books read, books wanted, books checked out of the library. Lists, lists, lists. How would I manage without them?
London - what's that quote? If you're bored in London, you're bored with life? We went to London last weekend to meet up with some friends. And we did it with no kids! First time in awhile. I had a great time. I still love being a tourist in London.
Libraries - I can now drive to my local library. I go there once a week at least. Libraries have always been my special place. I used to have panic attacks in America because of changes in my life. I'd start hyperventilating and be panicky and I used to run to the nearest library so I could breathe again. LOVE libraries.
Letters - I love getting hand-written letters. I was going to use this space to suggest the idea of pen-pals. I've seen it done on other blogs I read and I think it's a fantastic idea. But when I thought about it more, I thought I'm hardly keeping up with the friends I have even with email and facebook and this blog. I think if I started a pen-pal thing I'd fail miserably. And that's not fair on anyone. It's a nice idea though, and maybe when I'm blessed with more organisational skills..
Lie-ins - At this point, lie-ins seems like a myth. But it can't be, surely. I'll get out of bed past 7:30 one day. When I'm retired maybe. Elliot's been having nightmares lately, so he wakes up either really early or through the night. And then comes in our bed :(
Legoland - It's coming up to Legoland reopening. Elliot's favourite place on earth. I love to see the excitement in his eyes. He's talked about Legoland all through the winter and he knows that it opens again in March, after Joshua's birthday. We'll be there.
Little children - OK, I really meant MY little children. But I have nothing more to say about them just now.
Lots of comments - So I struggled with 10 L words! But lots of comments is always nice!
Other L words that didn't make the cut? Lazy Sundays, Lemonade, Long-sleeves, Labradors, Long, hot showers, Literary Couples, Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!, Lightning, Left-handed men.
