Blog Challenge!

I see that a couple of my "blogging buddies" are doing blog challenges!  I have been so bad at blogging lately - I just don't seem to have the time between work, nursing, running up and down to the Morningside Clinic, but this one, on Rebecca's blog seems fun enough, so I have decided to take up the challenge and give it a go!

Right, there we go, 30 days - let's see if I can do this!  After many a few weeks of writer's block, I'm going to try ;)

Day 1 - Your favourite Song

"Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with string,
These are a few of my favourite things!"

My favourite song and it comes from "The Sound of Music".  Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved this song and I used to sing it to Stacey when she was little.  As soon as I am feeling unhappy or frightened, or even when I hear the rumbling thunder during our famous summer storms, I hum this song to myself and it makes me feel so much better!

When things are glum and I'm feeling sad, I "simply remember my favourite things and then I don't feel, so bad!"
