Giveaway: Because I love youse all!

ATTENTION: I have been a bad, bad girl! In my enthusiasm to give back to my awesome readers for all their support, I forgot to read the fine print! Therefore, I've needed to change the conditions of the competition, so as not to land in some deep do-do. Those of you who have already entered, don't worry! It's all good, your entries are valid as is! As compensation for my idiocy, I've now reduced the number of followers required, so the lucky winner can start using their new mouse and Office software sooner!

As I've written a fair bit about, I've been having a lot of luck lately. Things just seem to be going my way - at least when it comes to winning things. Recently, I won Office for Mac: Home and Business package, through Nuffnang. The thing is, I'd just bought a Mac, and with it came a copy of Office for Mac: Home and Student package including a free wireless mouse. The iMac also came with a wireless mouse, so I decided I would give the Home and Student away to one of my followers!

Now, I have to admit, I love to talk to you guys, and I LOVE comments - because I'm all in my head a lot of the time and getting someone else's perspective is actually really good for grounding! I've been trying to think of ways to encourage everyone to talk more - your thoughts, your opinions, your feelings about things are really interesting and important to me, so please share - both here and on the Facebook page (if that is more convenient)!

So! You know what's coming next, don't you? That's right! If you'd like a chance to win the Office for Mac software with free wireless mouse (hey, even if you don't have a Mac, maybe you're cleverer than me and can sell it on ebay!), then:


  1. Become a follower this blog via the app to your right. 
  2. Leave a comment - even if you're already a follower - let me know! I'll put you in the draw! 
  3. You'll get a second entry if you tweet a link to this post or share this blog post on Facebook (2 extra entries if you do both!) and come back and let me know!
As soon as the page accumulates 100 followers, I'll draw the winning name!

NB: don't forget to tell your friends!

Hi guys, please remember I'm looking for 100 followers on this blog (via the google app) , as I cannot ask people to like my Facebook page and I cannot announce the winner on my page (so make sure I have you contact details!) - this contravenes Facebook rules and they can delete my Facebook page if I ask people to like my page - so I'll be drawing the prize when I have 100 followers on this blog :). Only 15 to go!

I'm so overwhelmed by the wonderful support from everyone!!! It's quite humbling! THANK YOU!

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 …

Do you have low self-esteem?

I don't.

I used to think I did, but having met several people who really do have low self-esteem, I've now come to realise I actually have low confidence (and note I don't say low self-confidence, but more on that later), and that is a different breed of animal all together.

I was having a chat with a friend the other day about people who constantly put themselves down. If you are a participant in social media you might be aware of this kind of person. Everyone is smarter than them, prettier than them, more motivated, better organised, or has greater talent than them. It goes further, some of these people are not at all opposed to running themselves down to others with comments like, 'I'm so fat' (and not in a proud, fat acceptance way, but in a negative, self-loathing kind of way), or 'I'm stupid' or 'I'm ugly'.

Some people are just fishing for compliments, of course, but the ones who persist; the ones who simply cannot take a complimen…
