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 – Seamless, boutique, haze

1. Good customer service from the people I bought my car from and who also service it. A seamless process from making a service appointment, to dropping the car this morning, being driven to my office, picked up again, paying for the car and finding everything shiny, clean and tidy. Ah yes, you really do get what you pay for – but it’s so worth it not to have any hassle.

2. Finding a boutique hotel that panders to your desires.

3. This morning it rained, which when I first peeked through the windows disappointed me. Realising the rain had stopped and that there was a haze all around delighted me remembering my grandad saying “the sun will burn this off in no time at all”. I like the idea of the sun buring the haze away…

3bts – babies, smiles, garden

1. A new baby arrives – early and I get to choose a present. I choose something lovely from babyblooms.co.uk

2. Having my parents to stay for a few days and finding activities to make Mum smile.

3. Coming home to find the garden has been tidied up by my mum and dad. The hedge has been trimmed, the lawn mowed and the weeding started. Now all I need is a dry hour or two to plant the new Dianthus, Clematis and the two other varieties, that I can’t quite remember the name of at the moment…
