Illiterate people stress me out.

1. My great big wonderful old man jumper. And the lovely compliments I got whilst wearing it.
2. Julia Gillard. I'd say more but there's enough talk about politics at the moment & I don't want to join in.
3. Being an owner of the new issue of frankie magazine. Not much more can be said other than the fact that it makes me tremendously happy just to know I own it. Let alone to read it.
I am one of those people, the ones who are always writing lists. I love writing lists, and if I didn't write lists, then I would actually cease to exist. I think. I write them for everything, and it's quite ridiculous as I'm one of the least organised people in the world, but wow, they make me feel good! They make me not crazy, which is always a good thing. I even have a whole exercise book dedicated to writing lists in, and when I got my job and found out that my boss was a list writer too, I believe there may have been some cream in my jeans.
There's something really really lovely about making all your thoughts go into straight lines and stay still, and to be able to cross them off when you don't need them anymore. Writing lists calms me and helps me to see properly in those moments when there is just so much going on in the world that thoughts become little snowflakes in an impenetrable blizzard.
It's just that, I like lists.

My secret talent = being a domestic goddess. One day I was asked what I liked to do in my spare time and this was my answer: "Knitting, Sewing, Cooking, Ironing." No one's really sure where it came from - my mother certainly didn't encourage it, and looks on worried when she comes home to find me sewing myself a new apron because "making cookies just isn't right without an apron". Nonetheless, I adore all things housewifey, and would give an arm to be transported back to the 50's where I'm sure I would fit right in. I'd wear gorgeous fitted dresses everyday and have my hair all perfectly set and never, ever forget to take my Valium.
