161008 - 11 Things

Compassionately left to stand?

I was lucky enough to be tagged by the lovely ladies over at we wear things for the 11 Things Tag, which I thought would be nice to share with all of you :)

1. Clothes Shop - anywhere really, I always have a specific item and look in mind, and I will literally walk in and out of every store to find it. However I usually get the 'feel' for a men's section by just walking in, so often end up turning around and walking straight back out!

2. Furniture Shop - antique and secondhand shops, I am still on the lookout for the perfectly worn in brown leather sofa. I have a dislike for matching furniture and 3 piece sofa suites, I like my furniture to have a mix of function and character, rather than simply 'fitting in' with a colour scheme or design theme.

3. Sweet - lollipops and anything strawberry!

4. City - 'maybe it's because I'm a Londoner, that I love London town'. Otherwise Damascus in Syria, one of the oldest continually lived in cities in the world. It is stunningly beautiful and has a wonderful and illustrious history, which is visible in the 1km long market set up in Roman ruins, lying opposite a medieval Islamic palace and next to a 19th Century French fortress!

5. Drink - tea (two sugars please), of any kind but especially proper South Asian chai.

6. Music

7. TV Series - too many to name, seriously!

8. Film - Chocolat or Spy Game.

9. Workout - running, especially early mornings. I love running when most people are still sleeping, that time of day is magical, the air feels wonderful even in the inner city!

10. Pastries - gingerbread, apple crumble with cream, and breakfast croissants.

11. Coffee - double chocolate latte with a shot of vanilla and extra cream.

And because I enjoyed this tag I shall be tagging every single person to read this post...yes, that includes you dear.

Currently playing: 23 - Jimmy Eat World

  6. Just being outside that early in the morning and observing the world then is beautiful. The light is different and your senses seem so much more heightened.

  8. well well
    now with your (albeit) indirect tag that makes for three people tagging me to do this, I am still hesitant.

    Love that you love furniture stores.

  9. you mention that double chocolate latte I was just so sure it was going to have vodka in it..hehheee...

  14. Ah, nice to know you that little bit more. What an interesting and very specific coffee choice. My own is: Soy chai latte with a shot of espresso and chocolate ontop. Weird and actually quite scrumptious. Next time i hit the cafe i'll be sure to try out some of yours!

  15. You've got a bit of sweet tooth. :)

  18. 11. Coffee - double chocolate latte with a shot of vanilla and extra cream

  22. Racking gives much more freedom of access to the goods. This system allows pallets with three different content types to be stacked above each other allowing access to all three sets of products. Boxes can be open and uneven without any consequence to the other packaging. This could not be achieved with the containers stacked on the floor. Are you looking for a warehouse to store products? Then, commerical shelving is an option worth considering. Without the shelving, the working conditions in your warehouse would be unsafe for the workers and managing the warehouse can get difficult. The shelving allows the companies to operate effectively. Storing products and organizing them in a manner that actually allows the smooth functioning of work. With the shelving, moving and finding products takes very little effort. Businesses have a variety of storage and organization requirements. Hence, commercial shelving becomes very important. - in month 3 the 9 people will have 'found' 27, Wilson nCode Series: Wilson developed this series to change how racquet technology was perceived. Wilson attempted to make changes to the racquet structure at the molecular level to make a better playing racquet. Wilson focused on building a racquet using lighter yet stronger materials for a highly maneuverable racquet without compromising the racquets integrity. An nCode Series racquet is definitly worth a test drive if you're looking for a new stick. 416.73
