3bts – cuddles, tea, puddy tats

I haven’t 3bt’d for a while. It’s just not been a great time for it. Life got a bit stressful on the 25th August, but now I’m hoping things are changing – for the better. Here’s my first 3bt of 2009…

1. Getting a cuddle from my step sons before they go to bed. The small one sits on my knee and pats my back as he squeezes me.

2. A cup of refreshing tea, made and drunk while we chat about Twitter and the things people say… 

3. Coming home after a long day out to find both puddy tats waiting for some attention from me. Now, the smallest sits behind my right shoulder, her paws resting on me.

3bts – sunshine, break, and stress-free

It’s been a while since I’ve done a 3bts…so, bear with me a little bit longer…but here’s an attempt!

  1. An unexpected sunny day in October and spending it with my sis walking around Avebury
  2. Getting to spend quality time with someone special after a break – and realising how much you missed them.
  3. The fantastic atmosphere at the concert blows away all negative thoughts and stresses. Yay!

3BTs – photos, first, sunshine

  1. At a party on Saturday BF and I took approximately 200 photos of everything and everyone. I had a great time looking through them, deciding which to send to others, which to delete etc. But, most of all seeing the very different facial expressions.
  2. My first rose appeared this morning – not quite unfurled, but just bursting with colour and perfume. Gorgeous Blue Moon – with more buds to burst in the coming weeks I will watch as the garden explodes in shades of pink and purple.
  3. I love driving to work with the roof down on days where the sun is shining bright from the moment I step out of my front door. It might not actually be warm (it was a chilly 15 degrees in the car), but it’s still the best way to wake up!

3BTs – airport, pink, and technology in action

  1. Anticipating seeing someone. I have to pick someone special up from the airport later.
  2. Pinks in bloom in my garden. Recently planted, the pinks are starting to show their colours, release their perfume and decorate my previously dull garden.
  3. Ah, the joys of a ‘Multipoint’ headset! Carrying two mobile phones just got a lot less painful thanks to Jabra

3BTs – Pinks, Gentle Surprise, Busy

  1. The satisfaction of planting Purple Pixies, Fatheads, Pinks, Blue Moons, and other flowering shrubs in my garden to make it look more colourful and smell more fragrant and hearing that I’ve planted some wonderful things (from someone older and wiser).
  2. Holding a four week old baby in my arms and seeing how gentle a five year old (normally a very boisterous little boy) reacts toward the tiny baby.
  3. Laughter, chitter-chatter of voices, and the satisfying hum generated by a house / garden full of people yesterday.

3BTs – Gran, wet & dry, surprise!

  1. Hearing that my Gran is having a good time “on holiday” while my parents have a well-earned rest too. She’s been visited by family members from far and wide – something that doesn’t happen too often when she’s in Scotland.
  2. Planning for a holiday with BF and his children. Agreeing things to take to amuse both of us and the boys and having both wet and dry weather options! It reminds me of going on holiday when I was a child…
  3. Agreeing birthday surprises with a friend’s husband before the day.
