Game Changing….(part 2)

So you go on detox retreat, keep yourself away from the ‘noises’ and let intuition guide you and then what……? Well, the initial couple of days were confusing, awkward, restless, unsettling, creepy, needless to say that my journalling was crappy too, full of,  ‘Why?, ‘Oh Why?’, ‘Oh Why?’…. I did not get hit by any divine zing…

Thanks “Honey-Bunch”…

I am blessed: with each friendship I not only gain a friend, but also gain an entire family. I revel in their successes and joys, I ache in their miscomings and pains. Since June 2008 I lost a friendship to ‘Egotitis’, and I realised the full extent of the pain when I saw some pictures…

Coffee musings….

I admit I’m an unashamed coffeee lover. Most mornings eventhough I crave for a cuppa and manage to brew a fresh pot, I have no time to sit and enjoy one.

The latest BestHealth magazine has a ‘Happiness Quiz’ and the very first question is…drumroll please: If your romantic relationship is an object, it would be: 1:A Chilli Pepper-spicy, lively, intense. 2:A Quilt-warm, comforting. 3:A Railway-fast moving trains by day; side by side, deep in sleep at night. 4:A Video game-push the button, a new battle…

Clay anyone……?

When the name of the street (in which one’s dream house is situated) has ‘clay’ in it…shouldn’t the light bulb turn on somewhere in the grey matter..? Mine didn’t! Moving into the new house in snowy/frigid February didn’t help either. So come April, snow has adieu’d & I am all ready for a backyard garden….
