LOA and the money stone...

Was talking to a friend about my blog the other day, saying it might not be suitable to link to another organisations blog because although I do write about life in general and my kids and parenting and child development, I also write about other more esoteric things, metaphysical stuff and what not that might not appeal to the general public, or might even be quite off putting to some people...

She couldn't imagine what kinds of things I was referring to, and I mentioned stuff like crystal healing etc. This garnered the response of, "Oh, you don't have crystals and that sort of thing", to which I replied that in fact, just above my front door I have a Citrine quartz, for the purpose of attracting money into this house... I was asked how that was working, and replied that in the next 6 weeks we were expecting a large amount of money (combination of the baby bonus and Kevin's "Go forth and spend" payment)... At the time I remember thinking, mind you lots of people are getting that money right about now as well - even though they don't have citrine quartz' above their front door...

So, anyway, the truth is, we're very well provided for in this house. Whenever we seem to be starting to scrape by, we're blessed in some way. This week was a lean week financially because Dave hadn't worked much in the fortnight after Ari's birth. We were looknig at 2 minute noodles and toasted cheese sandwiches for dinner for the week until my payday tomorrow. And then Jen reminded me that she had some money to put towards groceries in the wake of Ari's birth. So, we've had proper dinners this week! (and that's besides the generosity of people who have given us food in the form of buying the odd groceries here and there, and baking for us; thank you Jen, Rach, and Kiran)...

Then I got home from BaBs today, and there was an Education Maintainence Allowance cheques in the mail - for $65... Now, there have been notices to pick up these cheques at the front office of the school since the beginning of the term (in the school newsletter) but I've been ignoring these notices because, well, I totally forgot to put in the form to claim the allowance last term (pregnancy brain and all), so I didn't think we were getting one! I don't know WHY we got one, as I didn't apply for the allowance for the second half of the year, but here I sit with the cheque in front of me nonetheless!

As well as this, I just checked my online account at Centrelink, and the Baby Bonus is scheduled to be deposited in my account on Friday (yay!), and it's $185 more than I was expecting... So, this week alone we've been blessed with an extra $300 worth of food and money!

LOL, I can't help but feel that even when I've forgotten about the LOA stuff I've put in place here and there - like that crystal and the faith in universal provision I've expressed by having it - the provisions just keep flowing in, for which I cannot be anything but humbly grateful!

Sif, next Aug get together I have to talk to you about crystals and things :) . I want to know what to put into our new house :D . I also dont think about LOA too much, but just the other day when going through our storage things I found our old notice board we had in the study of our old house. The only thing left on there was the picture of a Ford Territory that I had placed there as a 'i want this one day' picture 4 years ago. The freaky thing was that we have ended up buying a second hand, 4 yr old car that is exactly like the car on our notice board..right down to the colour, year and model!

So now I just need to make up some new boards for the future :D . (I also doubted LOA the other week and then realised, just like you have said that when things seem to be going bad we always end up doing ok :) so I just have to continue to have faith in it :) )

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 …
