More about today...

I felt even worse, when I discovered that Luey had not put the Angelite in the bottom of the pram, but rather in my nappybag, and so it wasn't lost at all...

Anyway, it looks like the other two purchases I made at the Crystal stall were very timely. I bought (based on attraction) a Manganocalcite and an Amazonite... This is what sources say about these Crystals (from, http://www.crystalsandjewelry.com/metaphysicalproperties_a.html) :

Manganocalcite: is a calming stone that eases and
heals the heart chakra. It fills the heart with universal and self-love. It
offers hope for the best. Manganocalcite heals inner child hurts and past abuse by filling one with a sense of motherly love.
Manganocalcite It is also excellent for channeling and astral travel. It also greatly helps with studying and retaining information learned.
Manganocalcite is a nurturing stone that helps us take care of ourselves. It enables us to accept love and have self-love, and act on and with loving behaviors. It is a high powered stress reliever that relieves anxiety, stress and tension. It also removes fears of all kinds and reduces nightmares.


Physically, pink manganocalcite is beneficial for general health and healing, bones, joints, kidney, uterus, and physical heart issues. Manganocalcite is associated with the heart chakra.

honor, communication, integrity and trust. It is said to enhance intuition, psychic powers, creativity, intellect, and psychic ability. Amazonite is often associated with the throat chakra, and as such, can be beneficial to communication. It aligns the physical and astral bodies.

Amazonite is said to heal emotional disturbances and the after effects of emotional trauma. It is reputed to have spiritual energy healing powers of preventive energy that's good
for one's health in general, decreasing heart problems, benefitting the muscles, helping the nervous system, lessening tooth decay and osteoporosis.


While these Crystals didn't prevent my distructive behaviour this afternoon, I feel that having them in my possession may have had something to do with how sick I felt afterwards. Certainly, I feel compelled to work harder on this part of my relationship with my children. I apologise to both of them this after, especially Luey - I know that won't take back my actions, but I hope it is the last time I have to apologise for those actions.

No your apology won't take your actions back but it shows your boys that EVERYONE makes mistakes, that we all do things that we are not proud of at times, that we all loose it when we wish we didn't.. and that it is ok to admit when we are wrong and ask for understanding. It's shown your boys that no matter what you still love them and you still want them to love you, warts and all... and I know they do. HUGE HUGs...

I don't know anything about crystals, but they are pretty.

Be easy on yourself hey.

I totally agree with Kate!! Definitely shows the boys that we are all human and bound to make a few mistakes along the way. Don't be too hard on yourself. You are a good person. {{hugs}}

(((hugs))) If it makes it any better, I think most mothers have moments like that, even if they don't admit to it. I just lost it at Liam because I could hear Sienna screaming behind the bedroom door, and I thought he was locking her in there. Turns it it was *her* who shut the door, and he couldnt move her to open it. Now I feel awful yelling at him :( But yeah, I think its fine for our kids to see we are human-the most important thing is apologising.

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Do you have low self-esteem?

I don't.

I used to think I did, but having met several people who really do have low self-esteem, I've now come to realise I actually have low confidence (and note I don't say low self-confidence, but more on that later), and that is a different breed of animal all together.

I was having a chat with a friend the other day about people who constantly put themselves down. If you are a participant in social media you might be aware of this kind of person. Everyone is smarter than them, prettier than them, more motivated, better organised, or has greater talent than them. It goes further, some of these people are not at all opposed to running themselves down to others with comments like, 'I'm so fat' (and not in a proud, fat acceptance way, but in a negative, self-loathing kind of way), or 'I'm stupid' or 'I'm ugly'.

Some people are just fishing for compliments, of course, but the ones who persist; the ones who simply cannot take a complimen…
