Just choose ONE





Let us remember one simple truth that the people who come into our lives that are not family, are there of their own free will. They want to be there, it's of their own choosing and you should be honoured that they want to share their life and love with you.

You better prioritise!


Sadly I see far too many people going around forgetting how special people are and they're rather just treating them like options. These aren't face creams that you can try and discontinue use if it doesn't suit you. Feelings sadly can't be put on the shelf and there is no box we can neatly repackage and return to the store for a refund.



Please remember that before you let someone open their heart to you and impart such a beautiful gift as their love.Oh and for heaven's sake, make a damn decision and choose. There must be one person you possibly love above all the others.These are people not pick and mix sweets or a buffet of humans. Get serious mate!! Noone is saying settle, but you must choose!



Please be honest with yourself and make your choice.It'll make it easier to be honest with the other person.



You owe it to yourself and the one you choose to fall in love as much and as often as possible.

Everyday seems like a great idea.

Ain't that the truth!

Let it fall apart...



I am admittedly a serious Miss Keep-it-together. A specialist in fact. And I have an exceedingly high pain threshold to match. All part of the look right?! Because that's what it is; a look. Mostly it is. Naturally I do have the ability to stand still in chaos and seek solutions and stability, but does it always serve me?

Perhaps, I should scream the answer out to myself, it is a resounding NOOOOO!!

My body is in pain today. Strangely my right side and more notable my ankle, knee, calf, quad and hamstring. While this may be a ballet and running injury, I'm feeling a little like a damaged tree and that my roots are a little out of wack. Boo hoo me. Seriously.



So off to the chiro I went today and swiftly proceeded to let out all the stuff I'd been keeping in, through some wonderfully healing water out from my eye sockets. Wow!! If ever there were a more round about way to say I cried. Like a girl! Oh wait, that's just what I am and it's okay.

I am so tired. Deep town. Tired of holding it in, not being mad at you, not being upset, not telling you I don't understand, not telling you how I'm shattered.Tired for taking it all on and being strong and brave and calm through it all, when all I want to do is sit down, sit still and have you come and get me and tell me it'll be all right. I'm tired of being the bigger person, I'm tired of worrying,I'm tired of wondering I'm tired of being tired. I don't want to have it together, because honestly I can't especially all the time.

Loved this book...

You know what, that's just okay. So today, if you give me the ball, I'm telling you now, don't. Because I won't drop it, I just won't catch.Why? Because I can't and I right now I just don't want to and that's fine.



I need hugs, I need cuddles, I need kind words and more so kind gestures. I need to be myself, which also includes falling apart. I just need to let myself know it's okay.

That goes for all of us. Let's just take a deep breath and let it all fall apart. Who knows, falling apart might not  be the right term, perhaps we are just giving it a moment to fall into place.

Dress up and show up!

From here


This has long since been my mantra for life. I admittedly fall off the wagon more than just from time to time, but I believe in this quite strongly. Especially the dressing up part, makes it that little bit easier to show up.

Frustrated



The amount of carbs ingested is directly proportional to the amount of frustration I feel. When I'm sad, hunger does not feature, but get me frustrated and I want to chomp away. Could almost eat white bread, but nothing ever gets that bad!



Ignorami frustrate me. Lack of efficiency really drains me. I'm feeling really annoyed today. I have to truly accept that I am not a great line tower. Really rules need not apply,especially when they make not sense and people use them just as some f'd up parameter to hold people within, for reasons beyond my knowledge. A lot of people are not leaders in corporations, they merely have been given the authority to sign off rules. Grr!!

I know that I need to really work for myself one day, because I really am not about this life.



Do I take a leap of faith or bide my time and bite my tongue? It's a tough one, but I think I may just go for the former at this point. Why, because it's the best idea for now.

It's a grey day in Joho; pathetic fallacy much?! I need to have a gruelling exercise session. I want to sweat out this anger and frustration more than anything.Boxing would be so fulfilling right now, but I have ballet instead.



This is Monday, let's move on from this to a fantastic Monday evening and a great week ahead.

You better recognise!

Boys are so slow. I saw my ever gorgeous friend/ little sister last night. I was with one of my guy friends and she was coming over and my guy friend (he's taken, but not blind) says, she's gorgeous! Yes she is! But all these moronic guys don't see it.



WAKE up you morons. The girl of your dreams might eventually give up and stop waiting for you to notice her. She knows she's worth the chase and she knows that you're worth a slower pace, but why don't you open your eyes and realise. Recognise this gem. Why are you putting all that energy into that person you say you're not really interested in? My perennial question when it comes to guys... You spend all this time and energy going for the "it" girl, the "hot" girl, but you say it's the girl you don't want.

Then you make these cursory gestures towards the one you say is for you?! Really mate?! For real.

Go for what you really want. Put in effort for what you want. No one promised it would be easy, but they did say it would be worth it. So they say...

Just go for what you want. What's with the excuses man?!

You better recognise. Otherwise I encourage her to walk on by!

Go on wit' you BAD SELF!

Is she not just rocking it?
Okay the above is an order. We are all often engrossed with what others want of us and what we should be doing.

Why not just for one day for a start, ask yourself this,"What do I feel like doing?" Then do something about. Even one little step forward is better than just hoping.

Even wear something in your work wardrobe that shows even a little smidgen of who you are. Do it for yourself.

I wish you a Monday of magic and marvels and a week of wonder.

Do it!



Nike sure does have a point don't they. We all spend a lot of time talking, but I think we owe it to ourselves to actually get up and do something, take that step that will bring us closer to our dreams.

DO something!

Wednesday walkies

Is there anything more wonderful than holding a child's hand?

I've been looking forward to this day since Monday when the bestie and I decided on today as a date to see her and the little bunnies. I haven't seen them in TWO whole weeks and hon-aunty here is getting a lot cranky. Need to see those little babes. They're growing so fast, I don't know what the hurry is.

A tutu for my fave two.

So the plan is we're taking them for a walk this afternoon. Walking and babes. Hello, two of the loveliest things ever. I haven't loved little bunnies this much since my nephews were born. My two special little bestlets. Love them, maybe because I love their mother so. No really, I looked at them and held one just over 24 hours after they were born and I was done, they stole my heart and I don't want it back.

Important life lessons.

Well since these are the first little twin girls I've had in me lifey as an aunty, it's a whole new ball game. They are always looking amazing and well they just have the basic babe adorable factor to boot, so as responsible aunties, I feel it is our duty to rock up looking presentable for the bestie bunnies.

Girls this Marc, Marc, the girls. Girls your Mamma and Aunts enjoy Marc's treasures. (We'll introduce you)

So this is my ideal "taking the babes for a walk outfit..." Well more than one, because as they need to know, a girl needs options. Also the one thing I won't be wearing is perfume. My bestlets need to know what I smell like.

Stripes are great for developing their eye sight, and if it rains, they're covered!
Soft fabrics and pockets for babe paraphenalia
We love gold and brogues and shorts. Form and function here.


Converse chic and flowers. Need we say more.

A little pazza over print. (pazza is crazy in italian)

Can't wait to walk later.

Closing time...

So I guess there are few of us who missed this subtle Friends With Benefits movie reference, but this song in this movie is so pertinent.



There are endings and boy are some dramatic,angst ridden, frenetic, tearful, laden with some strange relief, weird satisfaction and some ambit of something to look forward to. Every ending really does signify a new beginning. It's really the nature of things.

We spend loads of time fearing the end and not looking forward to the possibility that new beginnings hold.



Try it. Have faith. Open the door, open your heart. Close the door, close the chapter." Don't look back, you're not going that way."



Last rounds right...Know that feeling? Why don't we call a collective last rounds on the things that are hanging out on the shelves of this library we call life?

"Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other new beginnings end."
