Waves

Here's is my beautiful baby sporting his new FABULOUS Starashan reversible pants!!! Groovy, aren't they?! They have the same wavey material on the reverse side, except in browns...
As seen on the pockets and the folded up cuff! I'm totally in love with these pants, hehehe! They're so him, happy and calm all at one (ok, yes, I'm completely ignoring those times when he screams blue murder like today when he was no longer welcome to wade in the dogs bowl at Leah's and further cover these gorgeous pants in dirt and mud - I quickly rinsed and dried them and mummy-order was restored, but the boy was NOT happy about having to stay inside for the rest of the visit...)...

Bryn is standing is HIS (just ask him!) newest acquisition (I think Liam might have something to say about that one, Bryn...). This booster seat or "chair" as he calls it, has taken pride of place in the middle of the loungeroom floor where he can survey his kingdom and sit and quietly drink the dregs of Dadda's tea...

He said his first proper sentence this morning, and it was all at once a moment of pride and horror for this poor mum, hahaha! I was sitting at the computer chatting to Sherrin or Leah, and Bryn was playing on the floor, or so I thought... I hear him making slight odd sounds just beyond my line of sight on the other end of the table and I said, "What are you doing, Buddhi?" and clear as a bell he says, "I got this!" Uh-oh! "What have you got there?", no response - really what was I expecting??? So I got up and found him knuckle deep in the margarine, have no idea how he got that off the counter - he must be taller than I think! Luckily he was so enjoying the sensation of the margarine that he hadn't taken his hands out of it yet to touch any thing else, so it was simply a matter of gently restraining his wrists and getting the nearest teatowel and wiping the marg of his mitts... LOL, but yep, Luey's first proper sentence (containing subject, verb, object) was "I did it!" and Bryn's was "I got this!"...

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…
