A saving grace or a disgrace


I've been tagged by Rachel with this sevens meme and it couldn't have come at a better time.

At the moment I'm struggling to blog for fear of what I might actually say. There is so much I think I want to say but can't say, but then I'm not sure what I'm trying to say, so I've said very little.

Confusing isn't it? Try being me for a minute....

Anyway, I have to list seven character traits. Now at the moment when I hardly know if I'm coming or going, am not really proud of some of the traits I'm displaying, I'm not sure if this a good idea as it gives me a safe framework to write about or is it just going to highlight what a pickle I'm in.

Heigh ho, let's go, feet first (hopefully not into my mouth)

Do you know the first word that sprung into my head? Depressed - how depressing is that. I'm choosing to ignore that one.

  • Anxious - yes right now I am anxious. I have a big knot in my tummy, you know the kind that fills you with a bread baby sized sense of foreboding. Anxiety is actually something I feel a lot lately. It's what stops me answering the phone, it stops me going out. Basically it's pants - this must change!

  • Resilient - you know Tubthumping and all that; Weebles wobble and they don't fall down. E.g. I still love to love even though I keep loosing.

  • I can't put defiant because, as has been pointed out to me lately, I have lost my defiance. It's true I have, I'm not proud of it.

So, so far I am anxiously resiliant with more than a faint air of defeat about me... hmm attractive, let's see if we can do better than that...

Struggling to come up with more...

  • A dreamer - I do have romantic notions and I dream in colour, I like to say this makes me hopeful, and I certainly don't see this as a bad thing - you have to have a dream else how you going to have a dream come true.

  • Loving - I have certainly found a capacity in me to love more than I thought imaginable where my child is concerned, which is good. The inability to stop loving is possibly a bad thing, while it makes me generous, it also makes me a little foolish.

  • Naughty - you can take this however you see fit...

Hmm a Naughty, loving dreamer, that sounds slightly better

  • Last but not least let's go with Creative - it covers allsorts from baking to home making, via the office and back to the bedroom.

Not sure that is me in a nutshell, but it will do for a Thursday lunchtime - not quite a tick vg more of a could do better...

Not sure I can find 7 peeps, but maybe these would like to tell us more for a start; He of the Brouhahah; Butterfly Girl; Her Ampleness and Mr Ledger (no not Heath, that really would be very odd, but very creative...)

You forgot funny and lovely and a whole thesaurus which are words that mean you.

Pippa, you just made my nose prickle and my eyes water. That's a lovely thing to say, thank you.

I know exactly what you mean about too much to say but not knowing how to say it....I attempt it on my blog but there is sooo much in my head it doesn't come out on the screen quick enough and gets all muddled. Maybe you should try and get it out.Certainly helps me even if it may bore people...

Chic mama glad I'm not alone on that one.
