I’m currently trying to read A Fine Balance, on FictionFan’s request, but it is quite a wide book with very small print, so, in the interim, here is a quick review of a very profound book we own called Eeyore’s Little Book of Gloom. Packed full of bons mot, nuggets of insight and some of your favourite characters from Winnie the Pooh, there are few occasions in life when this book wont be able to provide you with a different perspective on your trials and tribulations.
I firmly believe that we all have a little bit of an Eeyore tucked inside us. Days when no matter how nice an opportunity we get, we just feel a bit like:
And how often have you just ached to say this in a meeting:
I can’t help but feel there is an excellent story to be written featuring a meeting between Eeyore and Marvin the Paranoid Android.
Finally, a thought for all my readers in America and Canada who are longing for the Spring:
“Good morning,” said Eyeore. “If it is a good morning. Which I doubt!”
HahaHA! Thank you! I love Eeyore so much! His attitude to life is one of the few things that makes me feel like a cheery optimist. I have a mug with a picture of him on it, and when you drink your coffee down far enough, the inside says Gloomy! Gloomy! Gloomy! Much more fun than the Tigger one that says Bounce! Bounce! Bounce! – far too energetic an outlook for me…
One can’t complain. I have my friends. Someone spoke to me only yesterday…
I want that mug.
When are you going to share the one about Kanga and Roo, Kate???
I’m not going to dignify that with a response.
