Another Three Things This Week

Here are three things that happened/occurred to me this week that are not big enough to warrant full blog posts with thanks to Salma from The Write Balance blog for the idea.

Three Little Things To Share



I am taking part in a blog challenge at the moment where the theme of today’s post should be “three things I completed today”.

I wracked my brains, but I don’t think completion is a big feature in my life just now unless it’s chocolate bars – I finish them alright. Everything else is an ongoing project.

When you spend your days writing about love and relationships, as I do, you also realize that they are never complete.

You can never say “That is done, I am married now” or “”That is complete, I am divorced.” Even “He is dead” doesn’t mean the end. Relationships are forever changing, and you have to look after them, and even if they are over and no longer in your present, they are still in your memory.


Flirting Book

One of my current ongoing projects is a book I am writing on flirting with confidence. It seems like confidence is key to almost everything in life that makes you happy from getting a job to finding a partner for life.

I sometimes wonder why confidence is not taught in schools. It is so much more valuable than Shakespeare or French verb tenses.



I’m not sure I can bear it. The FIFA World Cup is about to kick off and there will be a whole month of wall-to-wall football (soccer to those of you across the Atlantic).

Hubby will be glued to the TV while grown men from all around the world run around a field kicking a ball for 90 minutes, match after match, accompanied by the most inane commentary about who has kicked the ball where, how and who to.

I just don’t get the appeal. I’ll have to take up knitting or something for the duration πŸ™‚

Over to you: Does any of this ring a bell for you? What is happening in your world this week? Please share in the comments below

    I am with you on completion but I have a side theory on that. To be honest…finishing something does signify “the end” and I am just the type of person who always strives to make something better…even things other would consider to be done or complete. We’re writers…and Ill never be done writing!

      Oh, that’s true with the writing. Sometimes I think I’ll never be done with a book, but at some point you have to publish otherwise your words are worthless like a tree falling in a forest that nobody sees or hears. At some point I go “If this is going to help at least one person, it will help a thousand” and I put it out there, because I know good words waiting to be made perfect and therefore unpublished don’t help anyone. Thanks for sharing Misty.

    I’m with you on the chocolate bar! Only the bar I completed last night was 220gms :-0

    Personally I love the sound of putting that tick against a task and getting it out of the way. My challenge is I add more to the list than I tick!

    But you’re right about relationships: the start is the beginning and the never is.

    How’s the flirting book coming along, Ana? Do you have a deadline in mind for it? I’ve always thought that schools should focus more on what a student enjoys (playing to their strengths) rather than using the same standards for everyone. I think our children would be more confident and that they’d be more likely to go into careers that they enjoy if we did that. Just my two cents though. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for sharing Avery. I’m sure we’d all be better off as a society if schools prepared kids for life. I suppose that is up to the parents but many parents are not up to the task. The flirting book was supposed to be finished in April and then May, and now June is here and it still has a long way to go. I am very good at procrastinating, maybe addicted to it, not sure πŸ™‚

    My eyes glaze over when the partner sits down to watch his kick boxing matches on tv. I swear, I never understood what he sees in a show where grown men are kicking and hitting each other. Must be a macho thing. πŸ™‚

    I took up crocheting years ago, but trust me girlfriend – it doesn’t take the place of HIS attention! πŸ™‚

    I’m with you on the chocolate! As for football, I hadn’t realised it was on till you mentioned it. There are upsides to living in my little internet bubble!

    Good luck with the book πŸ™‚
