Ooh, Baby, baby...

Now, before anyone gets excited, the following is an OVULATION test, not a pregnancy test. This one is boardering on positive (the two lines need to be as dark as each other, or the test line (on the left) should be darker than the control line). As my temp didn't rise enough this morning to indicate ovulation, I'm considering this test from yesterday to be negative, but certainly, I'm getting close to ovulation...


The following two pictures are for the benefit of people who are curious about the girl drink I'm taking...





Appetizing, isn't it? I mix on scoop of this stuff with 250ml of skim milk, and a couple of table spoons of yogurt (which was Dave's suggestion to make it taste better)... The colour of the powder is because of the cranberries that are obviously dried and crush to make the powder.

I'm getting used to the drink, but it won't be something I'll miss when I can stop taking it, hahaha!

I'm off to the Dr's this morning to organise a script for Primulot N to move my cycle so that I align in January. I'm pretty nervous about the appointment actually, because so much hangs on me aligning in January so I really need the Primulot. The Dr I'm seeing is very proud of the fact that she doesn't write out prescriptions on demand, so I've got to convince her I need this and specifically Primulot as opposed to The Pill. I have a story all sorted, so hopefully it'll be enough to convince her... If you read this before 10am, please feel free to sending me some positive energy for getting those tablets!

fingers crossed... What does the drink taste like?

The drink tastes like wet cardboard. Quite seriously, that is the closest flavour I can give it. I add a bit of honey or vanilla yogurt to it, and then you can sort of taste the cranberries. Dave swears by caramel topping, I haven´t tried that yet, maybe tomorrow morning.

Ewww sounds about as tempting as a tonic from the homeopath lol All worth it though when you are holding your little girl/s in your arms!

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 …
