When I was unpacking all the kitchen boxes last weekend I kept finding things I own that I love. This led to me dancing round the house on Saturday singing " My Favourite Things" ala Julie Andrews from The Sound of Music. Badly. Once the neighbourhood dogs had stopped howling and Little P had stopped crying, I had an epiphany. Inspiration. I love the moment when you think ..."I just had a great idea. I wonder if other people will think it's a great idea too?" I raced off to make this lovely blog button, because my idea was so awesomely fabulous I wanted to announce it straight away. Darn right I'm tooting my own horn. It's not often I'm so amazingly original.
Anyway,it turns out someone else was amazingly original first and stole my epiphany because I googled and someone already does Favourite Things Friday. In fact there are a number of brilliant people who think they're the only ones who do FTF out there. Technically since it was an original thought for me does it count as plagiarism? Will I get a cease and desist letter-I think not. I just know that if Blogland needs one thing - it's another unoriginal theme day with a linky party. You know it does. And I want to do Favourite Things Friday because I have so much cool crap around my house and a head full of favourite things that I'm just busting to share. And I wanna know what your favourite things are too. Because I'm nosy.
Your favourite things could be things you own, things you find, a place you love, a joke you heard, something you love to eat, a thought, a song, a book, a recipe. It can be anything- that's up to you. And that means anyone can join in. That's means you too, lurkers...jump in.
I'll do the first link up next Friday (September 3rd) which is the first week of Australian Spring, assuming I've learned how to use the linky widget by then. Totally off topic, I am thrilled at the thought of Spring. It means the sun will be making an appearance in a sky near me soon!
So here's the deal....if FTF takes off I'll finally be famous, and win Australian Blogger of the Year and thank you all in my acceptance speech and if not- I'll start the bathroom renovation and regale you with daily posts about my progress. Fair enough?
