“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the harbour. Catch the winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover.”
In 20 years time, I’ll be 40 years old. Scary. Better heed Mr Twain’s advice sooner than later!
“Home is where you are loved the most and act the worst.”
Marjorie Pay Hinckley
Am back home for a long weekend and off to Yorkshire, read this quote and thought about how true it is!
“They’re funny things, accidents. You never have them till you’re having them.”
Eeyore, The House at Pooh Corner
This is something I just saw in my Twitter feed and it put a little smile on my face (mainly because I read it to myself in an Eeyore-voice) 🙂
I came up to Yorkshire today to stay with my Nan for a week. This is an amusing conversation with my 5 year old cousin, as follows.
Her: “What does that say?”
Her: “Is that because it solves all the problems on your lips?”
“Happiness is having a large, caring, close-knit family in another city.”
The Jubilee Weekend was spent at my Nan’s in Yorkshire for her 70th birthday, and it was pretty mad, to say the least. All of my little cousins were there and including myself and my sisters, that made 10 children in the house! (though whether I still count as a child is somewhat debatable!) Nontheless, it was good fun to celebrate together.
“Thank you, Daniel, that is very good to know. But if staying here means working within 10 yards of you, frankly, I’d rather have a job wiping Saddam Hussein’s arse.”
Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones’ Diary
Another witty one liner from my favourite fictional lady, Bridget Jones. Such a great chick-lit, easy to dip into and good cheering-up material too!
“The only French word I know is oui, which means “yes,” and only recently did I learn it’s spelled o-u-i and not w-e-e.”
Stephanie Perkins, Anna and The French Kiss
Had my final French exam of my first year today; it seemed to go quite well! 5 down, 2 to go! 🙂
