A big week!

Whoo hoo, the boy is two!!! No more babies in our house now, I think I could cry!!!

Here's the birthday boy, celebrating having managed to blow out his own candles for the first time!!!

He's wearing one of his presents, a BtB polo shirt, size 2, so it's a bit big still, hahaha...

And here is the BtB doll action figure he got as well...

He also got some Magtasticks, which is kind of a junior version of Magnetics - he thinks these are very cool! Unfortunately for him, so do Erik and Luey, poor kid has to fight to get a look in on his own birthday present! Oddly enough, the age limit on this toy was 3 years and up, depsite it having not small pieces a child could possibly choke on...


And then, serendipitously, his new shoes turned up. They're pedoodles, which I love, and I had to get him two new pairs because his last pair stinks so much because he refuses to wear socks but wears the shoes almost every day. I got the same size as last time, but since then they obviously had a manufacturing overhaul because the rubber on the soles is a bit stiffer, and is emmitting a petroleum smells (so these will be spending a few days on our covered front porch, but also the sizing is BIGGER... By bigger I mean, these bowlers really look like clowns shoes on him... Oh well, he's bound to grow into them sooner or later...
And here are the much anticipate green shoes in the same brand... VERY STYLISH don't you think???

It was a day for packages because I also FINALLY got my Theta book and liquid crystal therapy vile... I paid for these a month ago, and so was beginning to wonder if I'd ever see them, LOL... Anyway, have started on the LC drops (7 each morning and 7 each night)... The blend I have is Pyrite/Petrified wood...

Here is the downlow on Pyrite...

Here is Petrified Wood...

So, funny because when I pulled the LC cards at my reading, and got petrified wood, but pyrite also fell out of the pack similtaneously, I wasn't sure that these cards really made much sense to me. Now they do...

I'll be interested to see how I go on the next couple of weeks take this course of drops... Hopefully, I'll feel calmer and shielded against negative energy...

On another front...

I've decided to look into this stuff...

I've been reading the threa don EB, and well, I've got to say, it does look promising... Have to run it by Dave, am hoping it will help sway him wrt ttcing #4 - because one of his major concerns is that if we had a boy, I'd want #5... I'm going to agree to using a more permament mode of contraception after #4, if he even agrees to #4... Either way, as I believe *I'm* having number four, I'd like to try and bend the odds in my favour...

And finally... Yes, thanks to those who Congratulated me on being in the paper on Tuesday... It was quite thrilling seeing my photo take up so much of a page. and while I'm not supermodel, I was pleased with a photo of *me* with all my flaws that actually managed to flatter me, rather than enhance my cringeworthy bits, hahaha...

Ok, I think that is me all caught up...

The gender stuff I remember coming across a few similar sites a while back that were actually very similar in set up and one even almost guaranteed the sex of your babe if you followed the strict program ;)

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…
