5 happy things and 5 annoying things

It isn't hard to come up with 5 happy things today.

  1. I am on Tangalooma Island. Hanging out with great people, eating food and drinking champagne
  2. Yesterday was a beautiful day. So, we took the boat to Lucinda Bay, anchored and watched the marine life come to us. I never knew turtles could swim so fast
  3. I have been away from the computer for days. It feels like a week and I feel re-charged and inspired
  4. I have lovely supportive family, friends and readers
  5. I smell bacon and eggs cooking. I don't even eat bacon but it is one of the best smells in the world

5 annoying things....

  1. Our water just cut out. When you know you can't use the toilet, then you really want to
  2. Someone must have labelled my moisturizer wrong and it's really a peel of some sort. I have obvious scaly patches all over my face
  3. I didn't pack any make up so I can't hide my scales
  4. We are sharing a holiday apartment with sleepy heads. So I have to be really quiet (like I am hunting wabbits)
  5. WE ARE OUT OF COFFEE!!!!
Have a great day!!

  9. A holiday without coffee could be a little difficult especially when they are all asleep. Don't you just want to wake up and make a coffee while you wait. Sorry if this doesn't help.
    But too much to smile about anyway. Aagh Holidays, they always make you breathe out.

  11. Just drink some more of that champagne, and you won't need the coffee - at least not till tomorrow x

  12. I like your 5 happy things best. Champagne must outweigh coffee? surely? xx

  13. Glad you had good food, good champers and good company. Sounds like it was exactly what the doctor ordered xxx

  15. Ha ha! I would really like to see a picture of the tiptoeing scaly monster, busting for the loo, because that is the image that is in my mind right now! ;)

  16. Oh dear. So happy... then so sad... Sigh...

    I have recently developed a love for coffee, now life is not complete without it... Hope you get your pretty little hands on some soon...

  17. Noooo! I couldn't survive without coffee! Have a fantastic time over there hun... I'll wave to you, across the bay, out the window ;-)

  18. Your 5 happy things are lovely! Your 5 annoying things...not so much. I know what it's like with not having water for the toilet. We've only got a portaloo at the moment (thanks renovations), and you have to refill it with water so it can flush. Not fun when someone forgets...! S. xx
