Theme Thursday’s choice of subject this week is “Pink”. It's the colour that least describes, me, I don't like it, it's insipid and girly and sweet and sickly and everything I'm not but . .in an attempt to avoid negativity, remain positive and be part of the programme . . . I'll skip a beat, get a little up tempo, fruffru and feminine and go through a few simple things that tickle me pink:
Actually I don't much like pink . . but Stephen makes it sound so sexy . . .
I am tickled pink when my dog greets me. It’s the wiggliest most pathetic display of spine-bending, tail-wagging and stick-picking that you could ever imagine and it's a daily event.
I am tickled pink when my son does all the yardwork and I mean ALL without being asked. He's awesome.I am tickled pink when I wake up on a Saturday morning, leap out of bed and realise that it’s not a work day! Yes I do that . . .often!I'm tickled pink when I buy new bed linen which fits perfectly and has that just-bought smell!I am tickled pink when my daughter turns up with a bunch of lilies for no particular reason and on no particular occasion.
I am tickled pink when someone says “Amy and I will cook” and they do, and they do it well and I don’t have to worry about anything other than the washing up.
I am tickled pink when I can buy six bottles of half decent Chardy for just $11.00 a case!
I am tickled pink when my boss brings back a little gift from his latest business trip as a 'thank you' for organising it.
I am tickled pink when the end of the fortnight comes and I have $100 left in the bank!I am tickled pink when I've finished my chores on a Saturday and all is clean and tidy and sweet smelling.I am tickled pink when friends drop in unexpectedly.I am tickled pink when I take that perfect photograph, the one I didn't really try to capture but it just got there somehow.I'm tickled pink when someone notices that I've lost a little weight or I buy a pair of trousers and it turns out I should have bought a size smaller!I am tickled pink when you chat or Skype. No mean feat when you’re in a different hemisphere and a different timezone but some of you manage it somehow.
