That was yesterday...

Some days are difficult and some people are heinous. This is clearly a fact of life. I am clearly far more naive than I imagined and far less capable of sneaky, underhanded and plain old dirty than I ever knew. Not a particular failing on my part though. Perhaps the naivety continues when I say that I still believe with all my heart and soul that good trumps evil. Even eventually. This I believe to be true. But for now, let me strap up and get ready to do battle. Should be interesting if nothing else. The cool thing is that the cause here is still a good one, that one should always leave a place better for those who come after. This is my aim. Come on people, let's all rally around and do the right thing.

Yesterday the beauty in my ugly day, was definitely going to see the movie, The Intouchables. It's a comedy, albeit a dark one. It's french with sub titles. It's rip roaring funny, but so true of life's interesting nuances and the incredible likeness of strangers. How two people who have never met before and literally live in worlds poles apart are exactly the right thing for each other.

It was also so great to watch the movie and realise that my french is not as rusty as I imagined. I realised that I was not reading the sub titles at all. Moreover I remembered the one thing that dawned on me when I still lived in Paris, that you realise you really know a language when you can start appreciating humour in it, when you can laugh in a language other than your own, I think perhaps that's the point when you can say fluency is probably closer to being a reality.


Here's to Friday. The inescapable beauty of this day, is that it is the start of the weekend and nothing can trump that!

Words for Wednesday

Pinned Image



This morning, I got a message from my darling Rochlet with the best advice ever. Not just for an amazing Wednesday, but to really just apply to every single day.

So even though I keep my precious friendships fiercely protected andclosesly guarded, this I need to share.

Here's some advice for the day and frankly for life!

Wondering Love


 


Pinned Image
Read the fine print




That many splendid thing many say. Really been thinking about all things love related  lately. While I am rather happily single, I've been thinking a lot about this thing we call love.

Pinned Image


I'm a believer don't get me wrong. In that heart fluttering, melting, whole body smiling, can't stand to be without, I want to do the ordinary and mundane with you, everyday, kind of love. That's what I want and that's what I will have.

I had it once, I only half realised the treasure I had, I was young and foolish and oh so not ready for the responsibility that is someone's heart then.
As much as I relish my own space and time, I still wish to share my daily adventures with someone, to make plans, but most of all, just that all embracing hug and kiss.That genuine love though. Last year I was with a guy, who did not like kissing. Who does not like kissing?! Says a lot, and definitely just a smidgeon of an inkling as to why I left him.

In all this wondering about love, yesterday I figured out what I was giving up for Lent this year. I am giving up men who only like me on their terms. I'm a girl dammit! I deserve to be wooed and pandered to and made to feel special allthe time, not just when it suits you. So forget giving up chocolate, Smarties, shopping,  excessive grocery(I love it), I'm giving up something I seem to be doing a lot of lately, inadvertent heartbreak. My own heart. As if the darling little thing can take much more.

A man with a hot mind can getit!

I'm actually starting now, so by the time Lent comes I'll be in full swing. As I've said previously, I'm not one for resolsutions, but Lent, that's my thing. Far more tangible an experience for me.

There has to be a spark. Some magic.
So that's what I'm giving up. What about you?

I can be super bossy by nature,but when I'm in a loving relationship, partnership is key. So I'm going to do this massive Lenten blitz on all these boys who are all over the place about me. I will stand stoically(haha)in my corner willing someone to notice me and woo me. (not really)
The right one I deserve will appear whenever.

To quote my sage, Bailey, "It will if it must."

As we make our way into yet another week of this new year, remember this, that you are God's (whomever you believe Him/Her  to be) wonderful piece of wonder and magic. Don't let noone tell you different or make you feel different, most of all you.

Wonder and magic for the week you lovelies.

Happy New Year dear blog readers! One week in! Yikes! Is this another that is going to just whizz by?

Spent the first day of the year, in the ever lovely company of my darling Bailey and her ever lovely family. Great start to the year I say. Lovely Jozi storm to greet the new year, rain is always a good sign of plenty blessings I do agree. Yummy P-I-T-Y (Put It Together Yourself) fillet rolls and ever delightful company, made for a wonderful afternoon, that was filled with chatter, laughter, little baby giggles, bubbles and most of all love. Gotta love that stuff.

So this is where my blog post title came from and sorry I won't explain it, Bailey knows about it and frankly you wouldn't really get the joke,you just had to be there.

None the less, wishing you a year that is both fantastic as it is filled with fancy flitterings of the fantastical.

I don't make resolutions. Well let's say I stopped a while back. I'm definitely more into making reservations...at restaurants I want to try out, but I digress.
I don't know if what I wanted out of 2013, all I know is that I was anxiously awaiting the end of the last year, that shall no longer be mentioned.

Looking forward to a good year.I plan to make it exceptional in fact. I am aiming to do one thing everyday that scares me. Not talking bungee jumping or something like that, the really difficult things that scare us usually don't involve jumping out of a plane attached to a balloon, it's usually things like telling someone we love, just that or confronting a difficult and awkward situation. These make jumping off a building seem like a walk in the park.

So it's here, let's do it! Look forward to each day and your day's activities with child like enthusiasm. Happiness is a reality, don't let noone tell you different.
