A Hello From Bee

Hello Everybody, my name is Bee Halton and some of you might know me from “The Bee Writes…” and “Bee SelfCaring”. Carol Anne introduced me yesterday but I thought I say a couple of words too. Carol Anne was so kind to answer the Proust Questionnaire on my blog so I thought I do the same for “Therapy Bits” and I do that first.

What is “The Proust” Questionnaire?

(Some links in this entry are in German)

In the 19th century, there has been a kind of party game which meant that guests had to answer a list of questions in the host’s guestbook. Marcel Proust answered it twice in his life and after a while, it got accredited to him.

A similar questionnaire is regularly seen on the back of Vanity Fair answered by celebrities. They even launched an interactive version in 2009.  The magazine of the German newspaper FAZ asks celebrities for years to answer it too.

So here are my answers:

 

Where do you want to live?

Exactly where I live. I was born in the South of Germany but always wanted to live in the Uk and close to the sea. Both are the case where my husband, his children and our rescue greyhound Sherky and I live. I believe North Norfolk is the best place to live in the whole wide world. Well, maybe Glastonbury would do too. And Ireland, of course. And Sweden….. Oh dear… 😉



What is perfect bliss for you?

 

I am not quite sure there is only one answer to that for me. But one answer certainly is to travel with the husband, his children and our dog wherever the road leads us…



Which fault do you excuse the easiest?

There are no faults. Just lessons we have to learn. (Well, at least that is what I try to teach myself 😉 )

 

What is the biggest disaster for you?

 

Losing loved ones



Your favourite characters in a novel?

 

There are sooooo many: Pipi Longstocking, Sam Gamgee in “The Lord of the Rings”, Herman in “The Magicians Curse” (she’s a girl by the way 🙂 ), Georgia in “Georgia Pine”…

So, who am I otherwise? If only I knew LOL well, I am a blogger and self-care explorer who tries to make a living with a new blog. I have left my day job in March and were looking for a new job ever since. It didn’t work out so I decided to make my passion “blogging” and “self-care exploring” my new career. I am currently building up a page that leads to my mug shop, to my stock photos as well as a new blog that concentrates on easy and affordable self-care. Let’s see where that leads.

And I am also a wife, step-mum, rescue greyhound mum, poetess and a European immigrant to the UK. I might be more than one but I will be exploring this idea more in debt in further posts for Carol Anne and all the others.  I might be a writer, am definitely a spiritual person and I love to make the people around me happy. And I am looking forward to getting to know you all!!!

Will be privatising the blog soon

I need to set my blog to private for a while.
I will be doing this very soon.
I am ok, I just feel like I need to monitor my blog a little more closely than I have been doing.
I am going to send out invites to those who want to continue to keep following, but I will only send them out to those I either know well, or who comment, or have commented in the past. If you want an invite to keep reading my posts, please email me to let me know.
my email is
shirley1980@eircom.net

You can also request access on the homepage once I go private, if I know you and recognise your username, I’ll add you.

The blog will only be public for a day or so then it will go private. I am not sure if I’ll stay private for good, but for now, its what I need to do.
Thank you all for walking with me on this journey. Invites will be coming to your email from me soon.

ahem, ahem!

I wanted to participate in word of the day! todays word? grudging!

 

so I will say this. grudgingly, carol anne let me do this post! she’s a meanie! ahahaha ok not really, im just kidding!

 

really though im full of energy and have nothing to do with it!

 

I feel kinda manic actually. and we aren’t even bipolar! although some people say I am a little bit wild and act manic a lot of times!

 

do I care? naw, not really!

 

im looking forward to going shopping today! I want to check out all the cool clothes! see what we can buy to wear on Wednesday! i’d love a dress but I doubt carol anne will let me buy one.

 

she thinks we aren’t skinny enough for a dress yet. I think we are! I think we’d be able to pull off wearing one, if we got the right kind!

 

what do you guys think? are you in agreement with me?

😀

of course you are!

😀

anyway. Cant wait to hit those shops! it is gonna be fun!
