A simple pic of one of our current crop of foster children. We have two girls sharing our home at the moment and this little lass is the youngest. Full of mischief, she fills our home with love and energy 💕
I’ve not put pen to paper for absolutely ages. When I originally started this blog it was to highlight and get the OCD most of my life had been plagued with, off my chest and out into the open. I’ve been successful at that I feel , well initially in the first year or two of the blog but then I kinda dried up with things to say. I felt I was repeating myself and not saying anything new and for want of a better expression , I couldn’t be arsed with it! 😆
I’m happy with where my life is with OCD is concerned. It’s under control , I’m functioning as normal as I’ve ever done, it doesn’t own me and I’ve got so much more that defines me as the person I am today to write and comment on if I’m to continue with my blog.
I’m 49 soon, I want to celebrate my life as it is now and all it entails. So I’m rebooting the page , renaming it and going to share thoughts , pics and ramblings for any poor souls that might find that interesting.
Pop by and say hello if any of it ever resonates.
Love this. Fantastic blog!
So what I hate the most is when people call me ‘lazy’ when they don’t even know my story, what I have to face every day and the reasons why I often prefer my own company to the company of others. I enjoy sitting in my room doing nothing, believe it or not. Deal with it. Basically, never call me lazy or tell me I ‘do nothing’, because a definite grudge will be held. I’m a girl, girls hold grudges. Duh.
Here are 10 scenarios in which I have been called lazy in my life:
1. When I don’t want to go out.
2. When I don’t want to do exercise.
3. When I don’t want to work.
4. When I sleep in.
5. When I can’t remember what topic we covered last lesson.
6. When I’m scared.
7. When I’m hurting.
8. If I don’t shower for a day…

I watched The C Word tonight, a BBC film starring Sheridan Smith telling the story of Lisa Lynch’s battle with cancer.
To say I wasn’t prepared emotionally is an understatement , what an amazing portrayal by Sheridan. This girl really is one of the finest actresses of her generation.
The story was very poignant due to my wife’s closest friend being in the middle of her own battle at the moment.
My troubles and anxieties pale into insignificance compared to anyone going through such real life threatening challenges.
It’s truly blown me away and I’ve come across the following quote which just about sums things up for me right now.
“When you arise in the morning think what a precious privilege it is to be alive: to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love” ~ Marcus Aurelius
And on that note, be safe and happy wherever you are.
