Flaunt It Friday #1

Right, I'm new to this but I like it so I'm gonna join in. Before anybody says anything, yes I know it is a Thursday and I should be doing this on a Friday but what the hell ;o)

Flaunt the one word or phrase that best describes your “real life” over the past week.

Mine is: What Goes Around Comes Around

Sometimes people that treat you like crap get what's coming to them in the end without you having to do a single thing. Just let things be, don't stress or worry over it because......what goes around comes around!

However, when this does happen, I end up feeling sorry for them even though it is their own fault! Again....too much empathy!! LOL

Southport Weekender

There is just over 2 months to go until we are off to Southport Weekender. Last year I was 5 months pregnant and really didn't enjoy myself much. This time I can really let my hair down and PARTAY!!!

I can't wait to dance till my feet ache!!! :o)

It will also be the first time I have been away from little Loola for longer than ONE night. She will be staying with Daddy and I know she will be fine but I am still going to miss her LOADS!


I Wish You Enough....................

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough 'Hello's' to get you through the final 'Good-bye'.

It takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to
appreciate them.

A day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

My friends and loved ones, I wish you ENOUGH!.


Reference: LIFE

I am God.
Today I will be handling all of your problems.
Please remember that I do not need your help. If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box.
All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

If you find yourself stuck in traffic; Don't despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work; Think of the man who has been out of work for years.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad; Think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; Think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance; Think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror; Think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; Remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!

A Child's Love

This made my eyes well up, but is very sweet. THINK ON!

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her 5 year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and said, "This is for you, Momma." The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared again when she found the box was empty. She spoke to her in a harsh manner, " Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?" The little girl looked up at her with tears in her eyes and said, "Oh,Momma, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was full." The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her to forgive her for her unnecessary anger.

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life. Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given a Golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and God.

There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

I love being a Mum !! :o)

One last thing!! This is a Tigereberaff! Nobody knew exactly what kind of animal it was supposed to be and seen as it looks like a cross between a Tiger, a zebra and a giraffe, I named it TIGEREBERAFF!! I quite like him - oh, and he is Danish! Goodnight

I must go to bed, I must go to bed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know what is wrong with me. I am knackered ALL day long and I wish for 7.30 to come round so I can put little Loola to bed and go straight to bed myself and then......................I don't go to bed!!!!!!!!!!! I fanny around on this poxy computer and before I know it, it is past 10pm!!!! I know I am going to be knackered in the morning when Loola wakes up at 5.30! so what the hell is wrong with me? Why don't I go to bed? ......I'm flipping addicted!!!!!!!!! that's what is wrong with me!!!! I am addicted to blogging and movie making and photo editing and blogging and reading blogs and more flipping blogging - there was a part of me today that actually thought it would probably be for the best if my lap top broke again and had to be sent away to be fixed cos then and only then would there be any chance of me getting some sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!! I AM NOW GOING TO BED! :o)

Furry Timberlands

OK, so I had the weirdest dream last night. Me and Darren were sitting on top of a car (like on the roof) just chilling. I was heavily pregnant and a big truck pulled up by the side of us. Darren said they were his new B&O speakers that he had bought for himself. I got all annoyed and said "you haven't bought speakers BEFORE paying me my money back have you?" and he said "no" and ran off into his flat (which was an old peoples home). Then this horrible man called Jason (I won't mention surnames just in case) and Rude Boy ran past me with a branding iron thing like they use to stamp a cows bum. It wasn't hot but Jason stuck it on my FURRY timberland boots and laughed and it made the fur fall off! I proceeded to tell them what complete arseholes they all are and then woke up!!!! FURRY timberlands!!!! What the hell is all that about????????????????????


He took your confidence
Your Innocent
He insulted your intelligence
He's wrong
You're right
Stand up and fight
Don't let him crush you
Speak bad of you
Pretend that he loves you
Think that he's above you
His hurt cannot change you
You're protected by an angel
All you have to do
Is believe that this is true
Your smile reflects your mind
A beauty that's so kind
Don't let him in your soul
Your heart he has just stole
You're stronger than you think
Woman stand your ground
Don't stand for this
Just move on
There's real love to be found
No tears are left for him
He's not even trying
What goes around comes around
He's been caught out for his lying
You deserve someone to love you
So wipe your crying eyes
He was a fake
He wasn't real
His love was in disguise

Mr or Mrs Squirrel

This is the Squirrel who lives up the big tree in my back garden! He is the cute little fella that made me jump at the chance to rent this pad :o) Actually there are 3 of them who live up the tree but I can't tell who is sorry little dude if you are in fact a dudette :o) Ha ha ha....squirrels having a 3 some! That made me chuckle ;o)

And yes I do feed them nuts.....I know I'm a sad-oh but I don't care!!

Me & My Buddie Miche

OK, so I know I look possessed but I promise you that I'm not - I just have BIG pupils, I can't help it!! We were off on a night out to Club One in Ascot I think. I have a feeling that this may have also been the night that little babaloola was conceived :o) Hmmmm....then I just thought "nope it can't have been cos Jezza was there that night and he is not in the pic" BUT... he is probably the one taking the pic, I am such a dimbo sometimes! LMAO

I would also like to point out that neither Miche or Jezza took any part in the whole conceiving of Loola thing!!!!!! LMAO even harder now HA HA HA :o)

Fridge Letters - Yay, I'm officially a MUM !!!

I have always seen these as a sign that you have kids. I know I don't have Kid(s) but I do have ONE kid (well not so much "kid" yet but "baby" but she will be a "kid" soon) (well, not so much "soon" but hey I think you should be getting my drift now!) I bought some - now I feel like a mum! LMAO he he :o)

What does this look like???????????

Is it just me or does this new toy (which loola really likes to play with) look awfully like something else? It isn't too bad with all the rings around it but once she has yanked them all off ...............................

I know, I know, it’s a children’s toy! does remind me of a “you know what”, especially the rounded top! I mean did they have to put that bit on it!!!! I reckon someone was killing themselves laughing when they designed that!!!!!
