The scene at my house right now...

We have a visitor atm, Sienna came home with us for a couple of hours today while Jayne went to an appointment, and the boys are LOVING having her over for a visit. Especially Luey is getting right into the big brother role, LOL...



So, here they all are watching kids tv together... Getting the boys home from school was absolutely no more difficult that usual. I had Bryn in the ergo, Sienna in the stroller, and Erik and Luey walking with me, as they normally do... LOL, can't help but think it felt like a look into the future, to how things might be in a 2 or 3 years, and it felt good, even though Sienna is obviously not mine, LOL (though she is a cutie!).

Bryn is acting like a love sick puppy, following Sienna around, and saying, "Tia, Tia, Tia..." and trying to drag her around with him, like, "Come here and stand here, and I'll show you this, and this" sort of thing... Like she's his little doll to play with, hehehe... Poor Sienna, don't know if she knows what to make of all the attention...

Aw too cute! Especially Bryn and Sienna! I got a giggle at Bryn wanting to show her everything, at least she lets him... La just scares her with his wild ways I think! ;-)

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 …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
