Future

I am positive. I have a good feeling about my future prospects, even if they may take a while to become true. If you’ve been following my blog, you will know that, back in May, I had a Tarot reading done. That reading was very positive but the span for things to happen, as I…

New Year’s Day

I’m starting 2018 with something I love – music – from a band I love – Pentatonix. This song is one of my favourites. It is upbeat and encourages us to move forward, forget the past or laugh at the bad times. It speaks of friendship, of being there for and caring for each other….

I Am Ready

Yesterday, while driving from Manchester Airport to home, I was faced with heavy snowfall over the Peak District. It wasn’t the worst but required attention. Some parts of the UK had it really bad, nevertheless, I seem to live in the snow black hole. When we get snow here, it means everywhere else was a…

11 Days

I’m back home. I am tired but very happy. I can’t thank my friends enough for having me and keeping me distracted over Christmas. It would have been hard to make it alone.  We played many games, talked, baked, drank… It was all very cozy and family oriented. The spirit, while preparing everything, set the…

Tattoo Update – 2017 done

I close 2017 with 22 hours of work done. The last sitting of this year lasted only two hours and it involved a lot of shading, going over areas previously done to bring the pictures together.  I love my artist’s work. He gets me. And as Raven would say, he had his hands on me…

Thanks

I would like to use this post to thank my amazing friends, who spent the weekend with me. Thank you for listening, thank you for always being there with comforting words, thank you for being so understanding.  Thank you for adapting to the circumstances with me, thank you for accepting and including Raven in our…

Happy Thanksgiving 

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK for obvious reasons, however, as most of my readers are from the US, I thought I should join in the celebration. There are many things I am thankful for, even after a very difficult couple of years. My daughter is number one on this list, of course. She’s…

Out and About 

I was out with Raven last night. We went to our favourite Tapas bar and spent the evening crushing on the three gorgeous waiters. They are too young for me and too old for her. Still, there’s no harm in looking, is there? I have big plans for the next couple of weekends. Next weekend…

HOW FAR?

These two words have been echoing in my mind all week. There are so many implications, situations and applications. How far can someone push you before you break? How far do you let them go to preserve your relationship? Each person will have a different answer to these same questions and, truth be told, to every single question…

ORANGE SKY

Yesterday, as I walked my dog, I was faced with the most amazing orange sky. I immediately took my phone out and started taking pictures. I quickly realised I wasn’t alone. The ‘red sun’ phenomenon has been all over UK news. Some people have even associated it with the apocalypse and the end of the…

Utter Hell

Today has been one of those days when you know, from the second you wake up, things are going to be hell. I didn’t sleep well. At all. I woke up many times. I was anxious. I went to work feeling less than fresh to end up stuck in a meeting for two hours discussing…

The Crow and The Butterfly (pt 2)

After my Crow left me, I received yet another visitor: a Butterfly. I saw the little thing struggling on my kitchen window seal. I tried to open the window to let her out but, to my horror, she fell behind the radiator and I couldn’t see her anymore. I thought she had been lost. I carried…

The Crow and The Butterfly

Since my wonderful friend Rhapsody Bohème started writing about Spirit Animals and the messages they bring, I have started paying more attention to what’s going on around me. I’m a firm believer that the energy of the universe can be sensed and interpreted, that it can guide you through life. I don’t think the future…

Gladiator

Today I was tidying up my handbag a little. I have to do it once in a while to remove the million receipts I throw in there and to reduce the number of lipsticks I carry (let it be known half of them are Raven’s, who sneakily throws her make up in for me to…

PATIENCE

I am feeling much better. After my retail therapy and getting rid of some of the bad energy, my mood has drastically improved and I’m back to my happy mamma times. I have to keep reminding myself I need patience. When I had my Tarot reading a few months ago, I was told everything there…

NEED

I am struggling this week. I really am. I’m trying hard not to be a moody cow or Debbie Downer at home in a conscious decision because of my promise to Raven. I often stop and take a deep breath, especially when my body is giving in to the exhaustion. It has worked but it’s tough….

DREAMS

In my previous post, I mentioned dreams, more specifically dreams that put me in a good mood that continues all day. Let me try to explain. I have started writing quick notes to remind me of these dreams. There has been a recurring theme to most of them. They are centred around having a relationship…

ANOTHER LOW

It’s one of those things you can’t really explain. I had a great weekend, things went better than I could have imagined with barely husband being civil, even nice, and Raven staying with me. Suddenly, out of the blue, I had one of my exhaustion episodes. It was Sunday evening and I was drained. My…

THE BIG O

Continuation of The Missing Piece… I moved on to The Missing Piece Meets the Big O, by Shel Silverstein. I had my mouth hanging open all through it. I related so much to everything. It starts with our Missing Piece waiting for someone to come along and take it somewhere. And loads come but there’s…

THE MISSING PIECE

Back in February, I received a message from a reader and fellow blogger suggesting that I read two books. They were kids books by Shel Silverstein called The Missing Piece and The Missing Piece Meets The Big O. I replied thanking him for the suggestion and promised to check them. I confess that I forgot about them…

MIGRAINE

I have been suffering from a crushing migraine since Sunday. I was fine until barely husband came to drop Raven off. We hardly spoke but I am convinced his negative energy caused it. Ugh!  

KARMA

There are many words that can be used to describe this, depending on personal beliefs. My mom calls it God’s rebalancing, some call it comeuppance, others just deserved fate: I call it Karma. After starting with the lost vouchers, barely husband’s holiday is not up to his standards. Remember I used to book/organise every single…

Writing Milestone

This weekend I have finished writing my first Wattpad book. It has been a very long journey, a labour of love, writing a story with a theme so special and important to me. ‘Make Love Your Goal’ has kept me sane in many ways. I could put all my feelings of love and acceptance of the LGBTQ+…

Symbolic Fire

I had this little box I kept with mementos from my wedding day. It was full of cards, notes and the little cushion used to carry our rings. It’s not like I opened it and looked at the contents many times over the years. It was just there, to maybe be opened while celebrating an…

Being Whole Again

I have been in a down mood for a while. The crying, the despair, the loneliness… I’ve felt it all.  Raven, wise beyond her years, has been my saving grace. I thanked her yesterday. She had been trying to hammer into my mind that as long as I’m feeling needy and basically crap, all I’m…

Spider

I am drawn to what you could call spiritual things. I believe in energies flowing around you that can tell you about what’s happening to you and give some advice for the future. It’s no wonder I enjoy so much the posts about spirit animals by my dear friend Rhapsody Bohéme. Thanks to her, I started…
