Happiness is possible…even if you are 33 and have a bottom the size of 2 bowling balls

lol….ok so I just have been taking a little break from top50 and life in general and may have had a giggle over Bridget Jones Edge of Reason this evening….it struck me that I too am 33, single and my bottom is certainly closer to the size of 2 bowling balls than hers is actually lol!

ah well jokes aside…I did some boring housework type stuff today and am feeling better for it…my house is starting to look almost vaguely respectable – why is it that when you are unwell for a couple of weeks it seems to take forever to get back on top of things?!

Still getting there. And has been a big couple of days really.

Yesterday – kids helped to sort the washing without too much persuasion (later we went to the shop they could spend their bribe money on cars lol – matchbox we aren’t talking a porsche here)!

Also yesterday – Owen had his speech therapy assessment. Now oddly apparently getting all the sounds right doesn’t figure prominently in the test (or actually at all) but then I guess they are assessing receptive language as well as speech too. The thing is that, while he still needs to work on the right sounds and some grammar, his receptive language actually tested in the 98th percentile for his age! The other areas were closer to the 50th (ie middle of the range) and so after all he tested NORMAL. yup normal – all caught up….with some work still needed to correct sounds and grammar but we have all the stuff we need to do that at home so no more speech therapy.

Today – did nothing much – finished the books so thought i would get my life back again but still had no desire at all to go out to the scraproom/office to do some work tonight. I know I should but I actually think I might be giving myself another weekend off (two in a row – people might get cranky with me) I am not, however, wonder woman and I think I need a bit of break so am having one. Will get some kid free time for a few hours on Monday and will work like a trojan then and hopefully tomorrow night to to make up for it.

so what else…oh I didn’t tell you about the psychic who was at the getaway.

now I have never seen one before and I guess I was always a bit of a sceptic but over the past few years warmed to the idea that some people probably do have a talent but there are still a lot of shonks out there. I thought I would go in with an open mind.

she floored me with her description of Owen based on just his name and age. She questioned that he was 5 saying he came across as younger which made perfect sense then went on to describe his personality to a T…she then did the same with Brett. made me sit and listen a bit…..

so what does she think is in store for me….well apparently she sees me changing address in the next 12 months – certainly not something I am planning atm – in fact quite the opposite and if I did plan to move then to Adelaide would be nice but she said not interstate. But the one that really floored me. Apparently she sees me finding love and getting married sooner than i might think….like next year! wow that really sent my head spinning. I mean she may not be right but you never know.

tis funny when I split with my ex I know at least one person thought that me enjoying my new found independence meant that I hated all men and I struggled to say that while I didn’t feel I NEEDED a man that that was totally different from hating them all. I needed to learn to stand on my own feet. But you see I was very lucky because I have a friend who not so long ago was single and then she found someone and proved that the fairy tale can be real – that love can be found after a marriage ends…I think that helped me so much. I’m not out there looking for love but I am open to the possibilities….not sure if that makes sense….dunno how exactly I’m going to meet a man when I am generally home, at scrapbook related functions (which are mostly women lets face it) or at kinder etc….but I guess you never know. in fact I know someone who found herself a man seated on a flight to Brisbane and then he happened to be on the same flight for her return home…..goes to show you can meet people anywhere I guess.

at the same time – happiness is possible without a man (for now but maybe not forever)….life goes on.

    I reckon happiness is most certainly possible without a man, and if you learn to be happy without, you’ll be happier with… don’t know if what I mean is making sense… hope so 🙂
