Blood does not a family make!!!!

Now you all know I’ve got a special needs child and you can probably imagine that it’s not an easy job to be a good mother to her.

Bad and Interesting times!!!!

There is an old curse that goes,”May you live in interesting times.” And boy do I feel like I have lived through a couple of those. There is nothing wrong or bad, about change, or even a couple of speed bumps in the road to slow us down and make us think. However this year… Read More

I rather sit back and worry, than get up and try. However, my realisation was simple, if I don’t try, how will I ever succeed or even fail… Read More

I am OK!!!!

This week end, I had a screaming fight with someone who decided to tell me all the reasons I would be alone. My first reaction was to get defensive and fight back, and I did. But then I realised that most of what they said, were their own interpretation of who I was and that… Read More

Good Enough!!!


Today I had a makeover. The person who gave me my makeover, is a wonderful, caring, loving and kind person and I thank her for the wonderful spoil. However, sadly in my crappy mind I took it another way. Just one more person telling me I am not good enough. I need to change and… Read More
