The one I seem to remember the most is a gorgeous hardback, embossed edition of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I used to love reading it because it was just so full of magic. I mean think about it… who wouldn’t want to step into their wardrobe to find a whole new land on the other side?!
If I go back even further, like pre-ten year old, I’d say my favourite books were probably and by Nick Butterworth that involved Percy the Park Keeper because his stories and illustrations were just so cute. I think I still have all of them somewhere…
Talk about taking a long, hard look at yourself in the mirror… Not putting clean clothes in my wardrobe straight away and hanging them over the back of my desk chair instead is a bad habit I have. And one that actually really bugs me about me!
Then there’s not being able to give compliments very well. I always feel stupid saying them or am worried that the other person would think I’m being sarcastic or condescending, so end up not giving them at all.
Worrying about the little details. I’ve noticed in all aspects of my life that, since I want to do the best job I possibly can, I will often not consider a job done until all of the little bits have been completed too. Whether it be cleaning the kitchen and I try to clean all of the nooks and crannies, or in my job, if I can’t get a sentence 100% correct I won’t submit it, causing a delay in the workflow.
