Let you fall asleep in the middle of a game while snuggling a purring cat, gently wake you a couple of hours later to suggest you go to bed, but when you groggily whisper “I’m happy here”, will leave you to sleep on the sofa but also put a freshly filled hot water bottle in bed for you in case you wake up and move from sofa to bed to continue a much needed sleep.
That was me falling asleep on the sofa last night just after dinner, just after I’d handed over the game controller to my partner for his turn. It was my turn to give the cat scrungles, and she was so soft, so purry, I lay down beside her, curling around her, listening to her purr…
Hours later I heard my partner gently suggest I go to bed, but it was too nice, warm, comfy where I was, surrounded by love…
It’s been a strange year, last week I finally solved that complex puzzle I’ve mentioned here and there in recent posts (thanks to the help and support of some very good friends and a few strangers), I haven’t been sleeping well (and usually I sleep like a bear hibernating), too wired in the membrane (would you like some bacon to go with the fried brain?), and finally there came upon me some decent rest…

SO… (oops didn’t mean to shout, my finger is sometimes slow to get off the CAP-sizer)…
A Momma’s View asked people to Tell Me Something Good #130… and the first thing which popped into my mind after reading her post was another post by another blogger.
This post (mine… shit, I’m confusing myself as always… I can rely on myself to do that) is my telling A Momma’s View something good. Thank you, A Momma, for sharing!

Ann Koplow of The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally shared this post a few days ago: Day 2139: I Can’t/I Can wherein she listed can’s and can’t’s, and one of her ‘can’ was – I can go for some comments about this post.
So, this post (mine… really, we’re going to do this again!?Yes, we had fun the last time didn’t we!) is my comment on Ann’s post because I can comment like this on WordPress. Thank you, Ann, for sharing!
“A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.”― Bernard Meltzer
While I was rummaging through my ‘Likes’ in the reader to find Ann’s post, I noticed that there were some other posts by other bloggers which also fit the Tell Me Something Good concept…
I thought I’d share links to those too.
A few of these blogs are ones I’ve only recently followed, so it may freak them out that I’m pingbacking their posts. Hopefully they’ll follow the pingback link here and find out that (yes, I am a tad on the freaky side) I mean them no harm and don’t want anything from them (you do not have to follow back… probably better if you don’t), I’m just sharing something good – your posts!

Kalliope of Modern Mystic Mother in a different post from the one to which I am sharing a link has apparently decided to ‘tear her blog down’ and start from scratch (Kalliope, you might want to check out Alice’s post…), in that other post she asked Have I shared something valuable? I’m not going to answer because that’s for you to figure out for yourself, however if you’re tearing everything down then I guess that’s your answer. I will say that I truly enjoyed PSA: Grumpy Red Fairy is grumpy and continued enjoying its ripples when I went off on a Google-ship afterwards to discover more about the artist who created the image for the card. Thank you, Kalliope, for sharing!
