This weeks word was 'Story' -
Everyone has one, and you may never know all of it. Some people stories are sad, some blessed, others full of adventure and interesting to share but no matter what their story and whether they have shared it or not, you should never let it effect you. Treat people with respect and realize that if they act/react/do things in a certain way it's because they have that story. That makes them who they are.

Question of the Week.

What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
- People stopping in the middle of the street while you're trying to walk there. (Stand into the side to have a family meeting, check your text or tie your shoe!)
- Littering! Of all sorts. Fly tipping, dropping of rubbish, not picking up dog poo...etc It is not only unsightly but effecting our wildlife amoung other things. Put it in a bin or keep a hold of it until you get to one! (Fly tipping - go to a skip/junk yard/ recycle plant)

- Drivers not indicating or using the rules of the road at all. Whether I am a fellow driver or a pedestrian.

Hope you have all had a lovely week and enjoyed your weekend. Feel free to share any articles or blog posts you have enjoyed this week, something you are thankful for, a happy moment and/or your answer to this weeks question, in the comments below :)


  1. Love the picture of you and your Dad! Hope you enjoyed your day out! :) Claire xo

  2. Gah, you're such a lovely for including me in the posts you've enjoyed bit. It's hard to resist a cute doggy post though, isn't it? I'm such a sucker for anything about dogs! Haha.
    Littering drives me nuts too. Our area isn't so good on the whole no littering front and it drives me absolutely mad. I don't know why it's so hard for people just to hold onto their rubbish until they can put it somewhere appropriate!

    1. Youre more than welcome. I loved your post - completly realated! Haa
      And yup, very true...anything about dogs ;)

  4. Number 3 on your pet peeves would be on my list too! So annoying! :-) xx

  5. Thanks for featuring the Laughing Project!! And I definitely just spent a good five minutes trying to figure out that photo. But nope, I'm stumped. xx

    1. You're very welcome! I'm going to take part eventually but I need to think of what to write about first haha.
      Oh it's cool isn't it! The whole place is optical illusions and stuff, well worth a visit if you ever happen to travel hundreds of miles to Edinburgh ;)


      It's a sloped floor and stuff by the way.

  6. I love the photo! I'm just working on a blog post about an adventure centre that was full of optical illusions and I have a photo of my Mum and brother in the exact same one! Thank you so much for including me in your list again! :)

    1. Thanks! And yes I saw it! Crazy how it was so similar but a complete different place. I'd love to check out the one you went to.
