“I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.” – Martha Washington
Kids sleeping upstairs. Fingers burning from playing the guitar. Tummy full of good home cooking. Head full of songs. Heart glowing with simple happiness. Bliss. Today has been a good day.
This year has been a year of extremes. I have been so happy I was walking on air and so miserable I never wanted to get out of bed and speak to another person again. My little boy was born on 1st March and I learned that to have two children didn’t mean sharing the…… Continue reading 2011 – a very mad year

Try to get back on top of my blog, finish at least 2 books and cook at least one new recipe. I neglected Carole Finds Her Wings over September aside from my 365 Project posts and I…… Continue reading Personal Challenge – October
I fell off the Happy Wagon today. Right off. And I possibly got run over by it too, just to finish me off. Over the last few weeks I’d almost convinced myself things were almost right back to better. That I was happy again and nothing was going to bring me back down. Then I…… Continue reading Today I crashed and burned
At the start of the month I challenged myself to make some ‘me’ time. Mostly I was successful – there were a couple of days where I didn’t put in much effort but generally I have put in a bit of time to do my hair either straightening it or else putting something pretty in…… Continue reading August Challenge – How Did I Do?
