No Happy Monday this week because I am madly studying for an exam and although the week has had some nice stuff in it I wanted to plan a little further ahead and schedule this baby in (ahh, the magic of the internet). I often read other taking stock posts and think how mind-healthy they are but have never done one. Something nice to reflect upon in the future too I think.
This list is from Pip of Meet Me At Mikes. I don't know if it is still there, but she used to have a little shop-front in Fitzroy, right around the corner from where I lived. I always meant to pop in, but seemed to always be on the other side of the road at the time. It wasn't 'til much later, when I started reading blogs that I recognised the sign in Pip's blog header. Funny how we notice these little things that grow in significance later. I guess that is a metaphor for life isn't it?
