It’s the little things…

… that make all the difference.
A text, a PM, and kind word and it makes you smile :) 

So today lots of people have been lovely, but I think today has just been made by someone ending a pm by saying that she wouldn’t write an ‘x’ at the end because she knows I don’t like them, but the meaning was still there.

Like, I don’t remember ever telling her about how I hate the whole ‘xxx’ thing, yet I must of done, and she remembered and made an effort not to.

I’m creating a song and dance about what is essentially not a big deal, but it just made me smile.  It’s little things, that can put a smile on someone’s face!


Massive thanks to my housemates and the spam ladies for these quotes :D

1. All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing

2. It is not the mountain that we conquer but ourselves

3. Fairy tales do not tell children that dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed

4. If you can’t see the bright side of life, polish the dull side

5. ‎If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there

6. Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising up every time we fall

7. Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it

8. People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within

9. Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow

10. In an uncertain world its good to know some things never change

11. The things we love always have a way of coming back to us in the end

12.  And you probably don’t want to hear tomorrow’s another day, Well I promise you you’ll see the sun again

13. like the butterfly, we will all find our wings in time

14.Optimist: someone who isn’t sure whether life is a tragedy or a comedy but is tickled silly just to be in the play

15. Friends are angels who lift us up when we believe our wings have forgotten how to fly.

16. Change your thoughts and you change your world

17. Of course the past hurts, but the way I see it, you can either run from it or you can learn from it.

18. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams

19. Oh, my friend, it’s not what they take away from you that counts. It’s what you do with what you have left.

20. Laughter is the shock absorber that eases the blows of life

21. I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains


Finally posting about some of the lovely birthday presents I got (I get my organisational abilities from my father)!  I jpg-d everything in sight, but I’m sure I’ve forgotten some stuff, so sorryyyy in advance!  Also, my parents got me my BSL level one course, and that’s not jpg-able, but yeah.  I learnt the signs for Mile End, Whitechapel, Poplar and Bangladesh at class tonight!  And my best present of all was everyone coming to my party.  It was lovely, and having 9 people staying over at my flat was extra-fun :p

From Laura, now with a picture of me and Caitlin  :)
