10 things I learnt this week

1. I really need to adhere to the Redbull two can maximum.

2. Garlic and honey does more than keep the vampires away.

3. Seeing the good in everyone ultimately makes you a better person.

4. When a store has a back in 5mins sign, it is often a lie.

5. Three of my friends got engaged this week… wedding fever!!
6. I am actually really excited about the gym opening.
7. Ive become quite addicted to really really B grade TV series.
8. I love being in a relationship, but I don’t know if I’m any good at it. I wonder if others feel this way.
9. Grocery shopping with an ipod make the experience special and relaxing.
10. There is no point worrying about things that you cant control.

Aside

16 things about women!

1. Nothing says “I love you” like thoughtful, unsolicited little gifts on days that aren’t “special”–anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas, Valentine’s Day.

2. Our job is just as stressful/serious/significant as yours.

3. There is no such thing as too many shoes. Ditto to the perfect little black dress.

4. One lie spoils a thousand truths. Once discovered, it will be stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.

5. Sometimes the earth doesn’t move. And no, you’re not going to be able to tell when it doesn’t.

6. A great haircut can give us a new lease on life. A bad one is not to be trivialized, minimized or joked about.

7. We are going to be upset with you and yes we are going to expect you to know exactly what we are thinking.

8. Women will always compare themselves to other women; ex-girlfriends, your female friends and especially your mother.

9. Some of us prefer boxing to yoga. None of us actually likes Pilate’s.

10. We go to the bathroom together because we are talking about you. Simple as that.

11. Call us back right away. That ‘three day’ crap does not apply. We’re getting older and we don’t have time to screw around. Wait too long and we’ll lose interest. Trust me on this one.

12. We’d much rather try on bras than see them on surgically altered, airbrushed supermodels, but we know how much you enjoy the lingerie catalog. Consider it a gift.

13. When we ask you what outfit we should wear- humor us with an answer. However, expect us to go with the one you didn’t choose.

14. Supersecret: Unless we’re blind or have no night-light in the bathroom, the whole toilet-seat thing is exaggerated and meant to control you.

15. Men who wear sunglasses at night don’t look cool, rich or sexy. They look as though they should be following a dog or holding a cane.

16. We like flowers, we like jewelery, we like diamonds… big diamonds and to this day, I cannot figure out why!

17. And last but not least, we can tell a lot about a man from the shoes that he wears… choose carefully!

I love my Dad!

*Sitting on the couch with Dad, watching Origin*

Me-“So dad, who won last time.”

Dad-“Britt? Really? Queensland won; in fact they have won the last four years.”

Me- “Oh. Are they allowed to tackle like that?”

Dad-“yes.”

Me- “that, what about that? Oh so they are meant to get it over that line for a point?”

Dad-“ Yes, they have to get it over the try line; that’s what they call a try.”

Me-“And a try is a point?”

Dad-“No, three points makes a try”

Me-“Gee, that’s confusing. Why are their shorts so little, I mean really.”

Dad- “it’s just the way it’s always been… Britt, I love you and I appreciate this attempt to bond, but isn’t there a movie you would prefer to watch… in the other room?”

The Harry to my Charlotte.


No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.
Life isn’t perfect, there are cracks in everything. At the end of the day, the only thing you can hope for is that through the cracks- you see a little sunshine. B x

Although you may drift in and out of fantasy land today, at least you can clearly tell the difference between your hopeful dreams and what is real. It’s a gift to be able to paint your future in the colors you prefer, without confusing your fanciful illusions with the important issues you now face. Be thankful for your ability to escape, but don’t forget to come back to earth and meet your obligations, for that’s what will bring you true satisfaction.
