My Ultimate Wish

To be totally free my soul requires travel. I was born with wanderlust and the traits of a vagabond.  My ultimate goal in life is to travel as much as possible, and help in communities where they need support.

My visit real travel experience where I have felt truly connected to the place and its people is Siem Reap in Cambodia (Home of the stunning and magical Angkor Wat.

I left Siem Reap with a deep attachment to the actual place and its people, and it is of no surprise to me really as I have always been ‘drawn’ there, but for what reason, I did not know. The poverty is so apparent for you to see, there is corruption and exploitation, but through it all the people are so happy. Leaving Siem Reap for me what not the end, but actually just the beginning.

If you wish to help some children of Siem Reap please consider donating to this wonderful cause

Liberia’s ‘Sex4Grades’ Epidemic Is Ruining Children’s Lives

http://time.com/4282516/liberias-sex4grades-epidemic/

Child sexual exploitation is a world epidemic. The grooming processes may differ dependent upon cultures and belief; and the ‘rewards’ for the children most certainly are different, preying on what the children need most. Stories like this highlight how present sexual abuse is. We as a world try to maintain that so much is done on the fight of sexual exploitation, but the truth is this is a war of its own. And one we are not winning.  Once again I’m sat here reading stories of children being taken advantage of, their innocence stolen, at the hands of selfish and manipulative adults. The same adults whose duty it is to protect the very same children. Heartbreaking.

Happy First Day of Spring!

First-Day-of-Spring-2

 

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING!

As it is now the first day of Spring it is time for me to put my ‘clean up and clear out’ plan into place.  The first thing on my list is to touch up the paint on the doors and in the hallway.  To make sure I stick to my Spring Clean up and Clear Out here is the list of my things to do:

  1. Paint the doors and walls in the hallway
  2. Sort out any clothes no longer required i.e. no longer worn and subject to requirements.  Sell on Ebay and take to charity shop.  TK Maxx also requesting clothes at local store for charity.
  3. Sort out paper work and dispose/recycle of anything no longer required/relevant.
  4. Sort out children’s toys.  Far too many they are struggling to see what they have! Recycle, sell, give to charity…
  5. Hang up any pictures/posters (these have been on my list of things to do for some time….I am adamant it will be done by mid April!)
  6. Sort out the belongings in the loft.  Some of these are keepsakes but the rest dispose of.  They are not required, serve no purpose and could be useful to someone else.
  7. Paint kitchen/living room.
  8. Add shelves/hooks to hallway
  9. Add shelves to living room for books.
  10. Recover large storage footstool for bedroom.
  11. Finally…..clean carpets.

Are any of you planning on a great spring clean and clear out?  Let me know what’s on your list 🙂
