Pretending that I’m doing well ……

I actually cracked it this week…..

Like, full on melt down……

I have been walking that knife edge for a very long time, even got many warnings over the last few weeks with car accidents, car trouble and injuries but, I didn’t listen.

I realise now, that I have been pretending that everything is “honky dory” and I can handle anything when clearly, the universe (and the people who love me)
knows otherwise. Continue reading


I feel pretty, oh so pretty…..

Oh, this kid is a delight when she is in a good mood……

We got stuck into more sewing this weekend and I saw her GRIT developing when she was trying her hand at hand sewing for the first time, she was so patient and persevered…..so proud, considering she has the temper of someone who would set fire to a project if it didn’t go her way!!

Pillow fights with Miss D

Thanks to my little crafting monkey, Denny, I seem to have found some creative juices!

She came to me last weekend asking for a pillowcase that I didn’t want so she could cut it up to make a dress and I actually got a little buzz and whipped out my sewing machines and helped her with her creations AND thoroughly enjoyed it!

Here is what we came up with…….

Sugar and Spice and all things NICE!!

I ran out of hairspray the other day…..again…… so put up with my fine hair being flat and droopy.  I usually fumigate my tiny dressing room (office that I have taken over in our cute, tiny house) with hairspray after I have finished messing around with my hair, to get it to stay put and use it on the roots for more lift, although, it was just the other day that I realised how crappy that would be for my lungs………

Why I have a little jar of CHOCOLATE powder sitting on my dressing table…..

I have always been a “wash my hair everyday” kinda girl, and what a pain in the proverbial that is, especially when you have long hair…….so much time wasted every day amongst the other morning routines of getting kids fed and out the door on time.

I did end up weening myself off of that “addiction” eventually, and with the help of some good old DRY SHAMPOO, I could manage 2, 3 maybe even 4 days between washes!! (thank goodness for the “messy look” trend these days)

A quick UPCYCLE to get me in the mood…….

Well, it has been so long since I gave my blog any attention that I forgot how to log in!!!! LOL

I have been so busy working on my confidence and direction in life and just needed to simplify, I feel so much better for it and my head isn’t crammed to bursting point anymore.  I just read my last post again and LOVE how you can help yourself out of rutts by writing and then looking back and seeing where you were compared to where you are now.

I have lost my SEWJO at the moment as I burnt myself out, hopefully it will raise it’s ugly head again soon but until then, I have been having loads of fun running my Beauty Therapy business and rekindling the love I have of it.  Life has become a heck of a lot easier since making the decision to go back to my roots and I take that as a sign of being on the right path!!  I have big plans including finally getting a funky old caravan up to speed (watch this space for more)
