Psychic Baby...

A thread I just read on JB reminded me of something that came to me in bed last night...

I've had a few "psychic" moments this pregnancy that now have me thinking this baby must be very in tune!

The first was when I was about 5 weeks pregnant and was at a BaBs meeting and a woman who doesn't go very often walked in, and I was admiring her pregnant belly, thinking I wasn't too far behind her... Anyway, she was making a cup of tea, and chatting with some other mums there, and then said something about her pregnancy, and everyone errupted into Congratulations, LOL! I was really surprised, because I thought she must have already told everyone, seeing as I already knew she was pregnant, pmsl. She was only 7 weeks at the time - so wasn't even showing, though I thought for sure I KNEW she was pregnant, but she hadn't announced it yet...

The second was when I had that dream where my mum told me to calm down or else my BP would go through the roof, and then the next day she rang to say she'd been thinking that I needed to defer my studies and just concentrate on the pregnancy so I didn't get too stressed out...

The third was at a homebirthing meeting last week when one of the women was telling her birth stories and she said, "Then I did something silly", and I thought, "Seriously, you didn't go horse riding did you?" but I thought that was "too out there" to actually say out loud, and THEN she tells us she went horse riding, pmsl!!! I hadn't heard her birth story before so there was no way to know she'd been on a horse while heavily pregnant, it just came to me that she had...

Well, three's the charm, so I can't help but think that having this baby on board is making me more open to all those universal knowledge waves that are floating about... While, I've had some experiences with knowing stuff in the past, it's never been this often in such a short span of time, so I have to assume it's this baby...

Rofl, yes, I've probably just lost the plot...

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 …
