Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge – Day 2

It’s day two of the three quotes challenge, for which I was nominated by the wonderfully hilarious Irish Procrastinator.

A reminder of the rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).

3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

Yesterday’s quote was from a book. Today, I decided to go with a song lyric.

Well it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table, but you only want the ones that you can't get


Sometimes it’s really hard not to spend all your time thinking about the things you want in life while ignoring the fact that things are actually pretty nice the way they are – especially when everybody else seems to have the one thing you want! This serves as a reminder to me to look around once in a while and realise how fortunate I really am.

Also, I just really love that song. In fact, I’m going to include another quote from it. I know the rules say one… but if it’s from the same song it’s like only having one quote – right?

It may be raining, but there's a rainbow above you

Basically every cloud has a silver lining, or every bad situation has some good in it.

Today I nominate:




Again, please feel free not to take part if you would prefer not to!

  1. Clearly spoken by a young lady – by the time you get to my age you’ve stopped craving things and want less, not more. We need to down-size now that we’re on our own and I’m trying really hard to give stuff away to the kids – except, for C with a C’s benefit, my fox and leaves Emma Bridgwater plates, they’re definitely staying. Nice quote, though.

    1. Oh, I wasn’t really thinking of material things. The only physical thing someone else has I might be envious of is a proper library full of books – my dream is to have an entire room dedicated just to books/reading. I was thinking more of life achievements, for want of a better phrase… like being envious of people who are getting married, having babies, etc. while forgetting that they’re stuck in our home town (which I couldn’t wait to get out off) while I get to live in Switzerland and have a great relationship (even if I am “only” a girlfriend). Things like that.

      1. That’s different, I can understand wanting things like that and I agree with you about the library, I’d like a proper library instead of having books scattered all round the house and my books are the one the thing I’m not trying to get rid of. Good that you’re enjoying where you are and who you’re with, that’s far more important.
