Cinders you shall go to the Ball!
Thinking back to my New Year post I wrote it in purple, the colour of optimism, and wanted to make it the year to achieve dreams. The year when dreams come true. Well, I'm still waiting... how about you? But, I'm also still positive. I still like to make every moment count and try new things. I guess this year, so far, my 'first's' have been using my concessionary travel pass, travelling on the tram, visiting The New Library of Birmingham, visiting the Avebury Stone Circle, and travelling on the Steam Train at Exbury Gardens.
Thinking ahead to the party season, if you were Cinders going to the Fancy Dress Ball, which of the following characters would you choose to be and why, or maybe you would like to add a character of your own?
Elizabeth Garrett Anderson
Vincent van Gogh
John F Kennedy
Personally, I would choose Florence Nightingale or The Lady with the Lamp as she was known. I admire her tremendously for all that she did and achieved which was difficult for a woman in her day. I find her an inspirational and caring character.
Until next week, have fun, make every moment count and never give up on your dreams!
