    Lesson of the Day / Car Park Vexation

    I lose my car all the time! Yesterday I was panic stricken with it, wandering up and down examining rows and rows of cars, the majority of them the same colour as mine and made a mental note, upon finding it, to never let myself go through this trauma again. Apparently, I am not the only one that experiences this – many friends of mine have this same problem, and it’s quite humorous to observe that you will see countless souls wandering around looking as lost as I do. You might be thinking that only an idiot would overlook the simple process of noting where they left their own car,…

    Just a Cheese Sandwich

    I was at a wedding the other week and it was quite lovely, with beautiful table settings decorated prettily. There was good music and great company. We as guests were treated to a lovely venue, and the evening buffet was truly exquisite. Tiny scotch eggs, mini sausage rolls, a scraping of pate, a hunk of bread with an olive pushed in, 3 dishes of savoury marmalarde (pronounced this way apparently), and a cheese board, where there was a girl serving minute slivers of your cheese of choice to accompany the other hunk of bread that was chosen that contained twigs of rosemary and dates. The girl at the beginning of…

    Why having big bazookas is not what its cracked up to be!

    I was shopping in town the other day and looking at the lacy offerings in the underwear departments of well-known stores. There are some really pretty bras and bralettes out at the moment, which are a kind of bra with a lace band underneath.  I think they are really nice. The problem is that, because I have a big bust, I find it difficult to find scoobydoo hammocks that feel comfortable, which is obviously what I need, that are simultaneously sexy and sweet. The bras in this particular shop (Primarni), are quite lovely, in many varieties, but it seems to be increasingly difficult to get anything for my size. I need,…

    Cuddling

    I love cuddling. Who doesn’t?  Canoodling, embracing, whatever you feel like calling it, to have someone you love put their arms around you is the most fabulous feeling in the world. It can make you feel safe, special and loved. To cuddle your new-born baby for the first time is the most life changing feeling and it continues as your children grow older.  To embrace a friend reaffirms your relationship with each other, to hug a parent shows your appreciation for them. Even my daft dog loves a hug. Cuddling has been proven to release the feel good hormone called oxytocin. It is produced in the hypothalamus and secreted by…

Numerous times I have been out and about and opportunities galore present themselves to be photographed and documented, which would have made great posts. Carry your phone with you at all times!   You must not feel guilty for not posting every day. I did this at first and…
