On the WW- website, one of the newcomers put a very long post up about Sun Gazing. So I thought I would give it a go. It has been 5 days now and from dawn till dusk- I have only managed to gaze twice?  One morning at 10 past 5 and one evening at 10 past 9. Why? well not because I wasn’t awake am or able pm- it was because there was no sun to be seen. The typical Irish weather kicked in and lovely rain & storm clouds covered it up. So this Sungazing sounds wonderful- but not practical where I live- it will take me years to reach the maximum gaze time of 44 minutes at 10 seconds per day per sun gaze time! Oh well- I will try to proceed whilst we are in Devon from this Friday onwards- but I hear the weather over there is not much better? Brightest Blessings.

After another Sunday Morning of gardening- Sowing lettuce- beetroot & carrot seed- I took time out in the afternoon to have a game of badminton with my 2 kids & partner. My son ever the comic- put his base ball cap on backwards- but he put the back strap in his mouth- making him look quite ridiculous. So I being the competitive Mom- wanting to play properly announced ” I’m not playing unless you play sensibly”. My son promptly carried on by serving the shuttlecock which came over the net- bounced off the top of my head- making everyone fall about laughing- including me. That’s what you get for taking things too seriously- this my son pointed out to me. Thank the Goddess we were not playing cricket! Brightest Blessings.

Diets suck.

My partner & I have decided a little body shrinkage is required- as we have both expanded just a tad too much. So we have drastically reduced Potato- Rice-Pasta- and Bread, began too exercise a little more and completely cut out Cake- Biscuits & Chocolate. The last 3 being the hardest and the ones that are always cropping up- on TV advertising- in general conversation-Magazines and at the table at home (via the kids). I feel like I need blinkers and ear plugs- as these are the ones I could so easily sneak off to snack on. So far I have managed to not give in- but the will power is not strong and its only been 6 days. The telling part will be when I step on the scales on monday- after 7 days of drastic measures- if the scales are not less stressed than last week- I shall be forced to eat cake!!! Brightest Blessings.

It has been very warm the last few days and at work most of the Spa is Glass- which while showing lovely views of the ancient woodland and rolling fields of green- it does reflect the heat somewhat. So I opened the doors for a breeze and in flew a swallow. He got very confused trying to fly back out threw the glass windows- so a rescue was needed. We got the leaf catcher net for the pool- caught him in it and carried back outside to recover. He was promptly joined by his twittering mates and I can just imagine what they were saying. ” Anything good to eat in there” ” Anywhere decent to nest?” Brightest Blessings.

I work in a health & beauty spa- surrounded by gorgeous therapists- who spend alot of time & money on their looks. When I arrived into work today- the senior hairstylist said to me- Your highlights look fantastic- where did you go- how much did they charge you? Well said I- I added lemon juice to my final rinse and let it dry naturally in the sun! You can’t beat what nature provides. Brightest Blessings.

Men Are Happier People

My sister sent me a recent e’mail- which made me laugh- Here are some of the points.

If Laura, Kate & Sarah go out to lunch, they call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah. If Mike, Dave and John go out to lunch- they will afectionately refer to each other as Fatboy, Godzilla and Four-Eyes.

When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave & John will each throw in £20, even if its only £43.50. None of them will have anything smaller or will admit they want the change back. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

A man will pay £2 for a £1 item he needs. A woman will pay £1 for a £2 item she does not need- but its on sale.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn’t. A man marries a woman expecting that she won’t change, but she does.

Men wake up as good looking as they went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the bins, answer the phone and get the post. a man will dress up for Weddings and Funerals.

A woman know’s all about her children’s- Dentist appointments, best friends, favourite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

Brightest Blessings.

Every year at spring time, we go out in the garden to weed, dig, replant and make new borders. Every year we seem to find more rocks & stones than the year before. We either have mighty moles with muscles, pushing these boulders out of their homes or they are breeding. Still no need to buy any rocks if I were to make a Rockery. Brightest Blessings.
