Just being ME

Please say hello ... I love comments!

rain, rain go away ...

To sum up in one word, today has been wet and in two words, very wet! We did manage a difficult cycle ride into Worthing, peddling through a stiff wind, drizzle and grey. The kite surfers were out in their droves, this being the best possible weather for them. I had planned to take photos on our return, but decided best to keep my camera under wraps, as the rain was getting progressively more heavy on the journey back.

Like a couple of drowned rats we stopped off at the Wild Bean Cafe for a cappuchino and once there nothing could stop us, we bought a bag of three jam doughnuts too!

At least now we have Blogthings for those spare moments on these kind of days. I ended up discovering what being named Louise stood for. I have italised what I believe to be true, the majority of what they say turns out to be!

You are relaxed, chilled, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting.
You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.
You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable.
You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious.
You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.
You are a very lucky person.
Things just always seem to go your way.
And because you're so lucky, you don't really have a lot of worries.
You just hope for the best in life.
You're sometimes a little guilty of being greedy.
Spread your luck around a little to people who need it.
You tend to be pretty tightly wound.
It's easy to get you excited, which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly.
You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time.
Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.
You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak.
Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.
You are friendly, charming, and warm.
You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat.
Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible.
But for the important things, you pull it together.

LizzieJane said...

We are also having a very cool summer this year, I think jam doughnuts would make me feel better too!
What fun to find out the meaning behind your name, I will have to go and check it out.

Simone said...

My name meant virtually the same as yours! I did read years ago though that it meant snub nosed! I think I will stick with this updated version. I could do with a cappucino and doughnuts right now!

I did the quiz and it was actually very interesting. I don't know how much of these things are true but I liked the answers so it works for me LOL Coffee and donuts? Yummy!

Chelle said...

It sounds like being a Louise is a fantastic thing. :) I think you are absolutely wonderful.

Gina said...

Some very good qualities Louise! To repeat NG you are certainly friendly, charming and warm!
I had to chuckle at 'suave'..can women be suave? I guess so! Very interesting, I must check out the source... Sorry to hear of the continual rain..just emailed you hoping you had sunshine..hopefully it's on the way by now. Gxx

Nicola said...

Oooh, I think I'll have to check out that link to find out what it says about me! Shame you can't get cherry jam there - it's really good!

Ragged Roses said...

So if there were three doughnuts, does that mean there's one going spare for me! It might just cheer me up amongst all this grey dreary weather

Just for fun, I put in Emmaline's name. Here's what I got:

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated. You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want. You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way!

I think a lot of that suits her to a T!

Thanks for all your lovely messages Louise. I'm afraid I haven't been very good at posting comments and replies lately.

The hydrangeas, just outside your window, look good though!!
I love fresh doughnuts! ;-)

Cowboys and Custard said...

Donuts are always a good antidote to rainy days!
That is fascinating character analysis of your name Louise and of course curiosity got the better of me and I looked up my name... just a wee bit scary!

We had a lot of rain recently, but I think my recently planted bush beans are all the happier for it!!

The name thing was fun. Mine was partially true also.

The Dutchess said...
