3 Days 3 Quotes – Day 2

I was nominated by Amy at Curiouser and Curiouser to take part in the ‘3 Days 3 Quotes’ challenge. Thanks Amy!

Today, as the title of this post suggests, is day two of three. You can read my quote for day one here.

Rules:

– Acknowledge the person that nominated you
– Post a quote for three consecutive days (one quote for each day)
Nominate three new bloggers each day. I am going to copy Amy on this rule and nominate three people on day three.

The Quote:

“You is hearing only thumping loud noises with those little earwigs of yours. 

But I am hearing all the secret whisperings of the world!”

The BFG  Roald Dahl. Illustrated by Quentin Blake

I have a beautiful BFG illustration and this quote framed on my bedroom wall. It’s a simple reminder to me each day that my ‘extra-usual’ big ears might belong to me for a reason!

Actually I can’t claim to hear secret whisperings of any sort but I am now very much in love with my ears (they run in the family) and only have the odd pang of self consciousness about them, as opposed to the overwhelmingly ear conscious years aged 9 to 22.

I think this means I’m now a grown up. It also means that I’ve been lucky enough to join forces with a man who is kind, caring and rude. The ear banter I’ve been subjected to over the last ten years has been the biggest healer and it’s no coincidence that we bought this picture together.

So cheers, big ears! And on with day three…
