Feeling hormonal...

i was going to say I was feeling down, but truth be told, I'm 100% sure this is just hormones messing with me right now. I don't think I'll be exercising today. It's 41 degrees outside and even with the aircon on, the house is not feeling particularly cool. After being outside for the past two days, the boys are railing at having to be inside. I'm sick to death of this diet already, and really want to cheat on it, but I know that is simply because I'm premenstrual and this is fairly normal for me.

I think all the dairy is messing with me a bit though because I've been so moody and crampy and bloated and just generally pmsy for about three days now, and despite a touch of spotting yesterday, I have nothing to show for it... That's not really that surprising mind you, I'm only CD11 today, so at a minimum tomorrow should be the last day of this cycle, with AF showing up on Saturday, or else, Sunday or Monday. Right now though I'm hoping it's earlier rather than later, for the sake of my mood. For the sake of timing Monday would be better though...

If my low, low feeling is any indicator though, it'll be tomorrow or Saturday...

Ah bugger... I hate that sort of feeling. :-( Here's hoping AF delays until Monday and you are feeling a bit of relief from the evil hormone fairy! :fingersXed:

If the dairy is affecting you do you think it'd help if you switched some of it from cows to goats? It's supposed to be easier to digest in general, so maybe would be a bit nicer for you if it's not a different pH?

Hugs Sif, I'm holding you in my toughts at the moment. Goddamn if you weren't in a dream I had last night (just hanging out in the background). xx

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 …
