Littlest boy stuff...


I was saying the other, in a blog, that Bryn loves to pipe up with, "I didn't do it!" whenever he is caught red-handed, or someone asks, "Who..?". Well, now he's got a new game called the, "You did it!" game. He thinks it's hilarious to yell, "You did it!" out of the blue while pointing accusingly at someone. Then he laughs! For him, this is a challenge, he wants the person he's pointing at to point back at him and say, "No, you did it!", then he laughs even harder, and so starts the, "You did it!" dual!

He is asking for biscuits, I wasn't exactly jumping up to get them. I said to him, "You get them..." thinking he could reach - because I don't have stereoscopic vision and couldn't see that they were at the back of the counter. So, then I looked up a minute later, and he'd figured it out himself... Clever boy...

Yesterday Jen came for a visit. It was great break from my writing, LOL. Towards the end of her visit both the boys has fallen asleep, and I couldn't resist a photo of them. I did take one of them both together, but really can't post it because my couch is sooooo grotty (thanks to Bryn painting with a cream filled biscuit the other day)... The lighting wasn't great, so they're a bit soft focus...



Aren't they just gorgeous!

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 …
