Feeling disconnected

Found out some news today about a good friend. A friend who I love and adore and consider a close friend . And yet I find out this exciting,life changing , earth shattering news from someone else. How very sad I feel to have not been told personally . We don't see each other often as our lifes have taken different paths but I truly thought I would be involved when this time came. I very irrationally feel like I've been dumped. I know that nothing has really changed and when we speak I'll feel stupid for being upset. But for now...I am hurt.

Chicken pox

Seriously how often will my little family suffer!!! My daughter has it it 3 times and also had shingles before she was 2 . My son has a had it once and now it looks like he may have it again! I really thought you could only get is once :(

So the conventional advice is calamine , paracetemol and antihistimine . Any more natural suggestions please?

Crafty stuff

I haven't abandoned all my crafty desires but the singing has taken priority over the last few weeks! No bad thing at all! I am loving tho that a last minute party invite is no longer greeted with panic as I will just whip up a hat or a bracelet and off I go! Unfortunately this only really works with women or girls . I guess boys might be happy with a hat but the men I know wouldn't really be interested . So what are your suggestions for homemade gifts for men? My only idea is cakes!!

Can't sleep

Mainly because I have ear ache and also because my mind is in over drive. My husband and I are not talking. Not in a bad way ... not all. In a good way actually . If not talking can ever be good. We have made a joint decision. A big decision. And we both know what that decision means but neither of us are brave enough to say it out loud. Because then it becomes real. I'm happy , he's happy , we are both excited even. But we seem unable to tell each other. To make it real. Other people won't be happy. They'll think we are crazy. So we pretend we are not even thinking about it. We discuss related topics , we make important decisions, we are joyful. And yet we don't speak. Very very odd! This being a grown up malarky is HARD!

Big decisions

I am excited about the months ahead. Lots planned and lots of ideas. My children delight me in so many ways. I married my best friend. Things aren't perfect but what is perfect anyway?! This time next year we will have seen lots of change and hopefully all of it good. Positive Mental Attitude is what's required and this post is the start.

We WILL be happy in our home
We WON'T be praying for payday by midmonth ... At least not every month
I WILL be working regularly doing something I love
We WILL be confident in our choices

no backing out now or this post will haunt me!

9/11 where were you?

I was at work. A friend called in to tell us what had happened. We laughed! After all she must have got it wrong?! We soon realised it wasn't a horrible dream . We spent the rest of the day sat round a radio barely speaking. With my husband ( then boyfriend) in the army I was terrified for all sorts of selfish reasons as well. It hard to believe it was so many years ago as the terror and shock I felt then is still very tangible now . My thoughts are with all those who lost someone that day.

What a pleasant day :)

Not without it's moments of stress and I felt too full of cold to go to choir. But today has definately been good . Feeling the benefits of the flylady system. A routine really works for me! And spent the afternoon with two ladies and there children who make me feel GOOD. We are different and yet the same. We share ideas , I find inspiration and I feel comfortable to be me. Our differences are what make us interesting . So refreshing and comforting. You know who you are girls! Love ya!

Wide awake at 4 am

And I can't blame the children! A runny nose is preventing me sleeping :( is there anything more irritating??? Got a busy day planned today too! Oh well I'm sure I'll survive!

Oh well ...

All the best laid plans and all that. So far this week isn't following the program! I have missed the toddler drum circle and all the first session of the Carnegie course. But I have managed to keep on top of the housework and keep calm! :) so not a disaster! I think it's great to make plans but always remember that it's ok to deviate from them!

This week might be a challenge!

It back to school, toddler groups, Carnegie course,simply kidz sessions! Can I fit it all and continue flying? Since starting Fly lady I have felt in control... But I might be about to fall off the wagon! Need to focus so wish me luck!

I love it when a plan comes together!

Today it all just 'worked'. I gave myself lots of small acheivable goals for today . Prepped for everything and managed to enjoy a lovely lovely day! No even a visit from nasty ole auntie flo and a spectacular trip fall grazed knee moment could upset my mood today! Long may this continue!

I love....

.... Random conversations with my half asleep 3 year old
.... Compliments when you least expect it
.... Coming home to parcels of yumminess
.... My clean uncluttered kitchen complete with shiny sink!
.... My 2 year olds crazy dance moves
.... My husband arms around me
.... My gospel choir

Today I am very thankful for all the things that make my heart sing xxx
