Five Minute Fridays: Loud

After finding the blog through my friend Claire's blog I decide to join in with her Five Minute Friday blogging.

The idea is to write for a straight five minutes on a topic and this week it is LOUD.


Sometimes I feel if I shout louder than the person I who is shouting at me I'll win the argument. I have been shouting when I lose my temper for years now but I instantly regret it. I regret the ugly words that come out and only come out if you shout loud. I try to stay quieter now when I feel angry and that means my loudness stays inside which means the things I don't mean don't come out.

If I am loud the raise in volume can bring a raise in temperature I don't mean. I think it is best to stay quieter nowadays. Maybe it is a sign of growing up?

I think I am still loud in situations where there is fun. That kind of loud of laughter bubbling and overflowing is a good type of loud. I guess I have two types of loud: my angry loud and my laughing loud andf they are very distinct from each other. The fact that the angry loud is more controlled is a good thing (except when it gets loud in your head cos there are lots of thoughts swirling around- sometimes then a good stomp about to loud music helps then) and the fact I can laugh loudly is a good thing.


Wow. That is a whole lot of babbling!

Dumplings and Nails

It is funny how sometimes the foods you hate turn into the home comforts you can't wait to eat and enjoy lovingly making.

I used to dislike mince and dumplings with a passion. Now I adore them! Mind you I was a very fussy eater when I was little. Mushrooms, 'raw' (i.e. unmelted) cheese, tomatoes, any form of fish/sea food that wasn't fish and chips or fish fingers. Now I list these foods as some of my favourites. Cos I actually tried them and fell in love.

However there is still one thing I will not eat. How do I like my eggs in the morning? None existent please. I cannot stand an egg. I *can* eat an omlette or quiche but would prefer not to. It is something that really annoys me cos I wish I could.

Do you have any introductory egg recipes?!

Also on the nail front, I have put some falsies on. Pretty pink ones, but I can't decided if they look silly or not. I've cut and filed them down so they aren't talons but I can't tell if I am a falsie girl or not. I'll give them a couple more days and see how I feel!
