My very first Blog award!

Well, my friend Karen at http://makeitsaveitmendit.wordpress.com/ has awarded me my very first Blog award.  A Versatile Blogger Award. Whoooho!  Thanks Karen!

So my exciting task, as I understand it,  is to pass this one on to seven other blogsters that I love.  Big smiley face!

Blessing Manifesting http://blessingmanifesting.blogspot.com/

And to also tell you seven things about myself:
  1. I used to be able to bring my feet behind my back to my ears & pretend my foot was a phone.  Freaked my family out a treat, especially my brother.   Teehee.
  2. Which brings me to my crowning glory.  I was a County Gymnastics Champion when I was 14.  Its all gone downhill since!
  3. I met my beloved husband in a backpackers in Sydney, Australia. 
  4. I love love love Christmas.  Especially fairy lights
  5. I worked a ski chalet in France & learnt to snowboard.  It hurt.
  6. Everyone always thinks I am a vegetarian.  I can do veggie cooking but I do eat meat.
  7. I lived in an alternative community for 3 years in my 20s.  It was both hard work & awesome.
Thankyou Karen.  That was fun!

  • Sunshine on a cold day.
  • Cuddling with Roo & reading his story, at least three times, in the warm sunny conservatory.
  • Pretty new mugs for my tea.
  • Feeling part of a community.

and so to sleep...

What is it with me at the moment?  A sleep filled night would be rather lovely.  I haven't slept well for a few nights and then...

Last night I spent from 1a.m. till 5 a.m. in a toddler bed with my 3 year old turning my face towards him ('I need to guddle you mummy') rather than allowing me to sleep how I needed to actually fit into said toddler bed.  More than once I gave thanks for only being 5ft!  My best hours sleep were between 5am to 7.30am.  Really.  I am getting to old for this. 

And so to sleep, perchance to dream.

Wishcrafting Wednesday - Reclaiming

Today, at Jamie Ridler's Wishcrafting, she asks

What do you wish to Reclaim?
I would like to reclaim my Power this year.  I have a tendency to give it away.  It's mine.  I want it back.  I am the best person to do anything with it.

I wish to reclaim who I am.

I also want to reclaim my camera.  I found these images on today in downloading my pictures.  Methinks I didn't take them!

A Joyous New Year to you!

I hope you got everything you wished for.  Even if it was masking tape in your stocking.

I got to spend a solstice sunrise morning with my beautiful girl who turned 10 at the beginning of the week.  Lots of walks with the family.  Lovely quiet christmas & new year.

And after a very reflective holiday now it is time to move on in to the shiny bright New Year. 

I hope you had a wonderful wonderful time.  Here's to a gorgeous New Year.
