One of my favourite things to do, apart from reading, is writing, so I love this blog link up that I've found at McGuffy's Reader. In the Friendly Fill-ins we're given written prompts (the words in purple bold) and then complete them how we wish.
1. I am far too Australian to ever get a British passport. In December I will have lived in the UK for 21 years and yet the thought of having a British passport still feels wrong. People here just assume I've changed passports and some even react as if I've insulted them personally by not wanting one.
2. To save money, I take a coffee to work with me in a travel mug to save myself the cost of twenty coffees a month. I know I could save even more if I didn't buy a coffee at lunch time but I'm a bit of a latte lover and it's a comfort thing - my little indulgence each day that helps me get to the end of the working day. I also do my little bit for the planet by getting my lovely latte in my even lovelier reusable mug which is made out of bamboo.
3. Love matter(s). I don't just mean romantic love (though that is pretty fantastic especially when it comes to my beloved) but more the love for our fellow inhabitants of this little planet called earth. I say inhabitants because of course I would include animals in the love fest.

4. Cold mornings make(s) me think that winter isn't very far away and I need to assess my winter wardrobe and see if there's anything new I need before the temperatures drop too much. I've got plenty of scarves and hats but I think I may need a new pair of gloves - what do you think, nice pink fluffy ones?
I'm not the biggest fan of winter but I actually prefer them here in the north of Scotland to the winters in London when I had to get the Underground to work - miserable way to spend a cold, dismal morning. I'd much rather spend cold mornings like our little black cat Muffin used to like to, wrapped up in the duvet.

Hope you've enjoyed my responses to the prompts - I wonder what you would have come up with. Until next time, be good, stay safe, and doing something nice for yourself this week.
