The Thirty Things Challenge

My friend Dorothy at Singular Insanity is currently running The 30 Things Challenge - where we list 30 of our positive qualities.

I LOVE this idea, especially for mums - we spend so much time cramming as much as we can into our day to help out our family that sometimes we forget we are people too - wonderful, kind, beautiful people who should be focusing on ourselves a bit as well :)

So here's my entry - just off the top of my head while baby Georgia sleeps and Sophie is out at the library with her Nan & Pop..

The 30 things challenge: write down thirty of your positive qualities: things that you, or others, like about you.
  1. I'm a really positive, happy person
  2. I help busy mums
  3. I sing and dance with my kids and don't care how silly I look
  4. I'm a good cook
  5. I'm organised
  6. I LOVE my family & friends
  7. I have pretty hair
  8. I manage my time well
  9. I tell my girls (and husband) I love them everyday
  10. I play bad cop well when my girls are naughty
  11. I make amazing muffins
  12. I make making beds fun
  13. I support my local cinema by going to the movies many, many times
  14. I care about people
  15. I love a challenge
  16. I always have a good reason for doing things
  17. I make great tea and coffee
  18. I tell people when they look lovely
  19. I donate to at least 3 charities every year
  20. I'm getting better at saying no, but saying it nicely
  21. I find easier ways to do stuff
  22. I'm creative
  23. I love to read
  24. I make great kids tents out of blankets and chairs
  25. I share what I know and love
  26. I don't stress when my kids watch TV
  27. I'm always learning
  28. I take time for ME without feeling guilty
  29. I appreciate everything the Husband does for us and don't give him a hard time about playing golf ;)

Happy Moments..

Moments like this make me so happy :)

I just can't believe they're both looking at the camera AND smiling at the same time!

And the bears... so many bears!

Do you have a favourite photo of your kids?

My 3 Favourite Movies of All Time

I LOVE movies.

I would happily watch one every day if I had a couple of extra hours available! As it is, I make sure I have time to watch at least one a week, at the movies or on TV / DVD.

My top 3 movies of all time are:

One Fine Day: with Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney. I must have seen this 7 or 8 times with my best friend when it first came out. Seriously, it's lovely. It made me love rainy days. And New York. And now I have it on DVD and my iPad and it's my fallback movie if I can't sleep..

Mr & Mrs Smith: With Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. I love the story, the action, Angelina's hair.. everything. Except Vince Vaughan (sorry Vince).

Le Divorce: with Naomi Watts and Kate Hudson. This is a cute little movie about 2 american girls living in France - I think it's based on a book. Love the story and how pretty France is in it :) Plus this is one I saw with a dear friend who passed away unexpectedly a few years ago, so it will always be one that reminds me of her. Amazing how a movie can do that..

What are your 3 favourite movies of all time?


P.S. I can't guarantee all names have been spelled correctly on this post and I'm in a bit too much of a hurry to Google them tonight as we're about to watch a movie. So, George, Michelle, Brad, Angelina, and everyone else - if you're reading this post, let me know if you need me to change anything  ;)
