One thought on “things to make you go woo!

  1. Oooh, ooh, I have things to say!! Numbers 2 & number 4 are things that make Ian happy too. Although he chews his gum loudly regardless of who is around.

    My Dad always seems to manage number 5 & number 12, but these never happen to me!

    Numbers 13, 18 & 22 made me laugh. When we came back from holidays our plants had grown ferociously. Apparently it’s the nitrogen from the lighting in the air that does it.

    Numbers 20, 36, 38 make me happy! And 41-44 make me VERY happy. I love it when you’re grocery shopping and the next thing you know, superman is looking at you thorugh the shelves!

    Oh and whenever I see people writing their names with sparklers, I always think of you.
