One Thing I’m Totally Sure Of Is: Everyone wants to feel loved

Is it possible to have romance and kids?

One Thing I Am TOTALLY sure of is that .. Everyone wants to be loved just as they are. We don’t want to be loved, despite our less attractive bits.  We want to to be totally and unconditionally loved.  This is true of us all, from the poorest to the richest, from the kindest to […]

The 4 types of help: Be careful who you ask for advice

It’s easy to feel warm and fluffy when we talk to people about our problems, but does it sometimes require some discernment about who we talk to?  I reckon there are four types of advice … 1) Sympathetic Ear Sometimes we just want a sympathetic ear; fair enough it can be therapeutic to offload and […]

Video Wed: Cup Half Full, Half Empty or Filled Half Way?

Video Wed: Cup Half Full, Half Empty or Filled Half Way?

So I was chatting with Curly Headed Boy in the car the other morning about how to look at life.  I got him to imagine a glass of water that had been filled half way.  Then I said ‘Is it Half Full or Half Empty?’.  Because both are true.  But it is also true that […]

Do You Choose To Not Inconvenience Your Family?

Do You Choose To Not Inconvenience Your Family?

Turning my noisy head off

Fibro fog

Why do people have to disagree with us or have a go at us?  Do you ever wonder?  Wouldn’t it be easier or nicer if it was different?  Or if everybody was nice all the time would it actually not work for us? I know that in this world there will always be as many […]

A whirlwind of a week, would you like a second chance?

Wow, this week was a crazy week!  Children’s nappies leaked twice and whole beds and duvets needed washing, babies puked, I bumped my car (ouch!), and I daftly scheduled Little Dimples vaccinations.  In the meantime technology was not loving me, things kept going wrong and my computer was on a go slow.  I was only […]

Who am I, Who was I, Who will I be?

Willow Phoebe Rose Pearson arrived on Saturday 13th February at 13.25, at a chubby 9lbs 3oz, at home in our lounge after a very relaxed 7hr labour, lots of chatting and a short dip in the birthing pool.  Hubby and 4yr old son were downstairs during the process, watching films or playing computer games, and […]

Swap Guilt/Pain From Affairs For A Bright Future

Blimey, what’s going on with the celebrities this month, we have Tiger Woods and his addictions, John Terry and the girls desperate to become WAGs, and now Vernon Kay with his daft texts.  I feel for anyone who discovers that their partner has been unfaithful in any manner, but I particularly feel for these women, […]
