Whoop Whoop we’ve reached over 10,000 views! Not bad for a new site 🙂
Thank you to all who keep coming and visiting, I hope you are enjoying your time here as much as me.
Over the last eight months, life has been tough. I have been juggling a degree in Psychology, a part time job, my own yoga business and bringing up my three children single handed. Money has been tight and we decided to throw a puppy into the mix….oh my days. So….as my life was busy and stressful enough, I really did not need what was to happen next. My eldest child, a 15 year old boy, who, when everyone who meets him says he is sure going to be a heart breaker (I think he already is-as the gaggle of girls follow him around and he responds with his ‘can’t be arsed’ attitude) was run over by an elderly gentleman, and he suffered serious injuries. Two broken femurs to be exact. i found out by his friend calling me on my mobile, luckily…just as i had arrived home. What normally would take the likes of Linford Christie a good 5 minute sprint to where the accident had happened, it took me literally 3! There I was running like I had never done before down the road, dressed in a short red dress, and drivers beeping me as I ran past! For goodness sake….do you not know that my son has just been run over…that was my thoughts…in between ‘please god, please let him be ok, just let him be awake.’ Of course the drivers did not know that the lad laid in the middle of the road further down the street was my son. As I approached I saw a trainer further up the road from where everyone was crowding round. My heart jumped to my mouth and everything began to spin. ‘Please let him be alive….please just be awake..’ I kept repeating over and over in my mind. I approached his friend who was inconsolable. Luckily, my son was conscious…just. The ambulance seemed to take forever and my son was drifting in and out, trying to tell me he was going to sleep. I did all I could to keep him awake. I was not going to lose him no way. Although this was a stroke of bad luck (and we have had more since-but that’s another story) it was also a stroke of good luck…because he survived and eight months down the line he is almost back to normal….barr the metal rods in his legs…but he is getting there. HE IS ALIVE and that is all that matters. I came across this bracelet recently and it reminded me of what we as a family have been through these last 8 months…a serious accident, issues with the children’s father which has brought a lot of stress, anxiety problems, money problems, and finally only last week an accident at school involving once again my teenage boy who has now suffered a broken arm as a result! I can honestly say I have not had such a bad run of luck in such a short space of time. So when I saw the name of this bracelet….That’s a wrap-Get Lucky I thought, this is an omen, I have been brought to this for a reason.
THAT’S A WRAP…..that’s it….that is the end of this run of bad luck. GET LUCKY….With Pleasure! Buy the bracelet here at a modest cost of £3.50 can you afford not to…? 🙂 The bracelet is from a range of hand made jewellery by Kimberley Wilson, an entrepreneur who has been making jewellery as a hobby for a few years now, but has recently decided to make it her business, and we really do wish her all the luck, as the jewellery is something we personally really love. It has a contemporary boho chic kind of feel, something really wearable, and also something wish is just as great as a gift. Read other reviews of Kimberley’s Jewellery
Now that’s a wrap!

We came across a blog today which stocks lots of fabulous things, all shabby chic and vintage style little trinkets and treasures to add to your home. We absolutely loved the retro style boxes perfect for sandwiches etc. The pictures on the boxes just reminded us of growing up in the 80’s and our childhood.
I have decided to choose a different blogging site each month to showcase on Blogizing. The reason I have decided to do this is because they are so amazing in their own right, but for some they go unnoticed. This particular site has come to me at just the right time. I am in need of some guidance as I feel at the moment I am in a period of my life when everything is being broken down and stripped away. I am a believer that this has to happen in order to let in the new and make way for better things, as well as giving you the time for personal and spiritual growth.
Imagine my surprise when I came across a site (with thanks to the author who has on occasions commented upon my own blog) and this site includes some free e-books. One of them being Transforming Suffering into the Ultimate Healing. Wow I thought, this is no coincidence that I have ended up here. http://gedepramascompassion.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/transforming-suffering-into-the-ultimate-healing-1.pdf
Gede Prama offers this site with its treasure of spiritual wisdom and encouragement. I would urge anyone to take a look as I believe there is something here for everyone: Ocean of Compassion
My favourite post by Gede is ‘Transforming Anger into Flower’, it makes absolute sense to me and it is lovely to be able to get clarification sometimes in life!
Enjoy my friends.
I have been inspired to write about internet dating once again. I have just received two messages (from separate men) and once again, they have left me speechless!
I switched on my laptop this morning and logged into my account and when I noticed I have two new messages I got a slight burst of excitement. I say slight burst it was more likely a little twinkle which lasted a millisecond. The reason for this as I have been on this site now for quite a while and there really is only one or two gems on there, the rest are unfortunately, like bug lumps of coal or small uninteresting pebbles. But you never know…..I am a believer in fate and I think if it’s meant to be then you will come across your soul mate one day, whether that is whilst you are crossing over the street, in a supermarket, online or the more traditional ‘meeting in a bar’.
I clicked on the first message from the user ‘BigBalls1984’ I think the username should have given it away but I must admit I did not check the user name before I clicked on the message. The message read, and I quote:
“Hey there, I love your profile pictures you are hot! Have you ever considered becoming an escort? You can make loads of money and its really not a bad job, you get paid to take men out. What do you reckon?”
My intention clearly states on my profile ‘seeking a relationship’ but just to clarify, it is not a relationship of this type!
Next one looks more promising. I click on his profile photo, he looks lovely, dark hair, bright blue eyes and a nice, almost shy looking smile. There are three other pictures on his profile and they are all equally as nice. I read his profile and he seems nice, regular job, 5ft 11 inches (decent height though I prefer over 6 ft but I wont hold this against him). I click on his message and it read:
“Hi, you seem like a really nice, down to earth girl. Would you like to chat?”
I replied with a ‘yes’, why not, what have I got to lose, he actually seems nice and normal (this is important) so I replied:
“Hi, thank you for your message, you seem like a nice guy, what is a beautiful boy like you doing on a site like this?”
Well how I wish I had never asked…..
“Well, have you read the book 50 Shades of Grey? I am looking for a girl that is willing to train to become a submissive. Do you think this is something you would be interested in?”
“Erm, thank you for the offer but no thanks! Good look with your search”
This guy clearly has no idea who he is dealing with. I consider myself to be a free spirit, quite hedonistic if I am honest. To become a submissive for me would be like tearing off a birds wings and to finish it off, sticking it in a 4″x4″ box with no breathing space.
Well I guess my search for the one continues. I remain hopeful though. If nothing else the online dating is just an input of comedy in my life. I do not take it too seriously and I am lucky I have a good social life so I do not rely on it being the only way to meet people. Which is probably best, as unfortunately it would appear mostly the people on there are either desperate, obsessive,a time waster, a fake account, perverted or offering <ahem> a job in some way.
I would actually love to hear from anyone who has had success with online dating, as I am either doing something wrong or I am on the wrong site!
