I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one. So as usual I’m going to throw some words at you, and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

So here goes…

  1. Shampoo
  2. Window
  3. Frame
  4. Orchid
  5. Box
  6. Bedroom
  7. Surprise
  8. House
  9. Pastel
  10. Biscuit

wordsSo how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. Conditioner
  2. Blind
  3. Murder
  4. Pink
  5. Full
  6. Clear-out
  7. Birthday
  8. Sale
  9. Chalk
  10. Coffee

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

By the way, if you want me to explain any of my answers, just ask!

We all have things which annoy us, some trivial, some quite serious. So today I want to share with you some of the trivial things that annoy me…they’re listed in no particular order:

  1. Not being able to get a doctor’s appointment when you need one
  2. People who make out that they are you best friend in public, but in private are the first to ‘stab you in the back’
  3. Delivery drivers who, after delivering something to your house, don’t bother to shut your gate
  4. People who leave dirty dishes in the sink
  5. People who are always late

Do any of these annoyances sound familiar to you?

Yes, all the above things annoy me, but most of time I manage to stay quiet when they happen and just observe and say or do nothing as I know it’s just me being me!

 

Severe weather warning.

Snow, snow, and then some more snow.

Strong winds, and more snow.

Staying indoors where it’s warm and cosy until we need more food.

Shops have run out of bread, milk and most other fresh products. So glad that we bought bread the previous day.

So when’s all this snow going to stop, so we can get back to normal.

Snow has stopped falling now, but it’s still white out.

Stalactites hanging from the windows and roof. Suddenly falling to the ground making us jump at the noise.

Still it’s cold outside, and still white.

Snow’s nice to look out on when in the house but not so nice when you’re stuck somewhere in traffic.

So stay safe out there on the roads and hopefully the snow will be gone soon.

Time to shop

Are you someone who likes or hates shopping?

 

Maybe it depends what you’re shopping for, or whether you’re shopping online or in person?

When it comes to shopping in person, I can’t say I’m a fan. I just want to get to shop find what I’m looking for as quickly as possible and get out of there! And that includes food shopping, clothes shopping and any other kind of shopping.

It’s food shopping I hate doing most. All that wandering up and down aisles, getting blocked by, or bumped by other people’s’ trolleys – I really do detest that!

When it comes to online shopping, that’s a different story – I browse from wherever, for however long I want, without worrying about whether it’s going to rain and I’ll get soaked, or whether it’s cold outside.

So for me, if I really must shop, I’d rather do it online. How about you?

 

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you, and today, as the title of this post suggests, this word association is all about New Year and what it means to each of us. So as usual I’m going to throw some words at you  and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

So here goes…

  1. Midnight
  2. Door bell
  3. Countdown
  4. January
  5. Annual leave
  6. Steak pie
  7. Scotland
  8. Snow
  9. Decorations
  10. Over-eating

So how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. Bells
  2. First footing
  3. …to Christmas!
  4. Sales
  5. End of January
  6. Dinner
  7. Shortbread
  8. Sledge
  9. Boxes
  10. Stuffed

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of my answers confuse you? Did any of your own answers confuse you?

I’ve said in previous word association posts that I find I get a bit stressed when I’m doing them as I put a lot of pressure on myself not to over think my answers! Are you relaxed when you do them or do you find it stressful too?

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

I chose some words we probably all associate with New Year as well as some that I suspect if you’re not Scottish, you won’t understand (including some of my answers), maybe it’s time to find out a bit more about our Scottish New Year traditions!

MerryChristmas

I’m not sure how many people will read this blog post as it’s Christmas day and most will busy with your family, eating, giving and receiving gifts, and celebrating Christmas. But if you are reading this let me wish you a very happy and blessed Christmas!

Christmas is time for family and friends, joy and celebration, but is it that for everyone? Sadly there will be many today who are alone, mourning the loss of a love one who have passed away or homeless. There are also those who may have thire family with them, but didn’t have enough money to buy any gifts or even buy a meal for them today.

So today as you celebrate, I ask you to take a few minutes out from your celebrations and pray for those who are finding today very difficult.

Enjoy your Christmas, and enjoy making new memories with your family today.
