You know when your body loves to work by it’s little hints!!!!

Whilst trying to be a demolition worker I got carried away with the hammer. I was only taking the old deck apart and had a meeting with the hammer my hand and the deck. Well my hand became the meat in the steel and wood being the bread. I did what all true men would do  SCREAM!!!! I also said a few choice words like cookies, apple pie and the one word that make you feel better FCUK.  and others like Son of a B&^CH followed.  But when all the pain went away and the sympathy (not) from my partner I realised my body was saying that no matter what it will always love ME. Tell me what you see as in the shape of my Blood Blister.  Always know that the only one that can really love you is you so take care of yourself…xxx Smiles to all1024x768_bestfit_80

Not a day goes by that I don’t have some new exciting idea or the chance to meet someone special.  When you paths cross and we all know it’s for a reason.  I look forward to the next person I meet.  I am working hard on my next painting and the hard work is paying off, it is looking great.  I should watch what I eat as my tummy is now upset!!! Christmas pudding isn’t all that great anyway.  I feel sick.  😦  I finally learned how to lock my phone and it is really cool.  Why is it that e can’t live without a mobile phone?  I remember the time when you didn’t need one and it was a brick.  I gave in years ago and got a pager. What a time that was.  Now I have a top of the line phone and still learn new things I can do with it…. Right now I am watching a show about killer whales.. It is a great show as it portrays these beautiful mammals in a fantastic way. They are so smart and we seem to think that it’s just animal instinct  but is it.? I must make a mental note to self “never ever buy or eat Christmas pudding again”> I feel so sick. 😦  Sorry I have no new pictures to show you but soon I will finish this painting and will get it up on the blog for all to enjoy.. As always, Keep smiling and I am sending smiles and good thoughts to all.  It’s a waste of time and energy to be negative or hold onto bad memories. Anything that has happened is a memory. 🙂

Richie’s World “The New Year, The New Beginning”

The start of the new year was one full of fun and love.  I had my little buddy Grace for the week-end and for the start of the new year.  We are both very happy with life.  We went shopping the other day and she is quite a grown up 11-year-old. She had her money and was out to have fun with it.  She is learning the value of money and that if you buy quality it will not only last but look Great for a long time.   I have been working very hard on a new painting and at the same time showing Grace some different ways to paint.  Her latest painting that she is working on is so so good. I hope that she decides to not put a pony in it as the landscape she is working on is WOW.  Ponies are fun to draw and paint but it take loads of practice to get it right…

I have been a glutton this past year so it is time to correct bad habits when it comes to stuffing my face with junk food.  I know it will take will power and determination but I will get there.  Not saying I am a bush pig a I only gained 2.2 pounds this year.  I need to drop the fat content in my body and become more lean not just for health reasons but it will help my back.  No more with the clothes I don’t wear as I have so much. I did 2 trips to the charity shops thus far and will do a few more.  Feels good to clean out things that are not used but can be used by others.

I have set out some goals for the year ahead and am determined to do all of them.  There are physical ones,  mental ones and ones that are just about or for me.   I am learning that it is alright to put myself first before all others.  It is hard as I only want to please everyone and I know that this is not possible.  I feel that things need to move on so I will be asking my Lawyer to file papers to the divorce court so that this can finally be settled.  It’s going to cost us a lot of money but it needs to end.  I have faith that the courts will be fair and see that I am not out for anything but a fair deal.

Today I went for a walk on the beach to talk to my best friend, she always makes me feel good and I hope that I do the same for her.  I also had my car washed by this hard-working man.  He out by the sea front in Paignton every day. Rain, cold sun, no matter the weather he is there ready to work.  He put a lot of fit grow men to shame.  He works harder than these benefit collecting thugs we see all the time.  I was happy to pay him to wash my car and it was the best car wash ever, he even dried it too.  All this for Four pounds.

Keep your smiles and pass them on. I am smiling to all of you and wish you a happy New Year.

Richie’s World “just got silly”

I decided to do something different. I go through these phases every now and then and this time I….. Well lets say this I no longer look the same.  Crazy Richie is still the same on the inside but on the outside you would say I was thick just by looking at me.

Tell me is it a good look?  Hope you like it and if you don’t how really cares?  HAAA HAAA smiles to all and be happy. Try something new everyday as it could be your last….

Just the night-time update. My buddy is kicking my other girls bum in wii dance.  It is too funny. I want to join but poor back says no way. Grace seems to double Sara’s score every time.  I can do some of the games as you just sit but grace is so good.  We just had steak for dinner.  The day has been great except for the Lawyers bill!!!! Oh well she is good and I will do as she says.  Looks like I will go to court to settle this divorce. I want closure and a fair one.  It will cost me now but in the end both parties should be happy. Smiles to all 🙂

Not only is the weather foul so are some aspects of life. I have learned not to let things stick to much in my head.  It’s easy to do when you finally see the truth.  You need to feel and know that you have right to feel good.  If you feel you have done nothing wrong and others feel different you need to stand your ground.  I was told something once before when I was made to feel guilty, “I don’t make you feel guilty, you make yourself feel that way so don’t blame me.”  It’s easy to say this to people who you have made to feel guilty as you know exactly which strings to pull and how to get the response you were looking for. I took all this on board and learned the hard way.  I have now stopped this feeling of guilt and know I have a clear mind and heart when I make my choices.  I do feel for all involve in my choices but I only do what is fair and right.  At the time I make my choices, other may see it differently but it’s not about them.  The bigger picture needs to be seen.  I have a great support network now.  I ask advice, listen to others but most of all I listen to myself.  I do a lot of research to get the facts before I put things in motion.  I have come a long way as I used to just gave in as I was beaten down.  With help I am so much stronger.  Seeing smiles and happiness helps. 🙂 Here’s a new sunrise for you all!!!!

Today start Great but as the middle of the day hit I decided to fix the sink, it was coming off the wall.  Yes I know I rent but it wasn’t something to hard.  I thought that until I stuck my hand around the base of the pedestal and something RIPPED through my finger. Talk about pain and blood. Good thing I was able to call my other half and she came over to sort my middle finger.  She was told by the Doctor at a resent visit that she had a good heart so I took that to being kind, oh no she took one look at the finger and said”no stitches” and then she grabbed my finger and started to squeeze.  I must admit I was both HOT and Cold all at the same time.  I now have a pretty middle finger that I get to show everyone, that’s right sticking straight up!!!!  So the moral of this short but true story is, wait for it.  I HAVE TOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS!!!

I finished one Christmas present that was giving me trouble but I never give up.  Now I am working on part two of the gift.  I will not give up as I am a fighter/lover. 🙂  Got to see my little buddy this morning and we are planning dinner and a movie.. We will see.  lets see what photo I can show you today, remember all comments are welcome both good and bad. It’s your opinion so it matters to you!!!!  smiles to all and happiness.  🙂

Just another happy day.  I have so much to be thankful for.  I have my family and friends.  I’ve been working on a few Christmas gifts and it’s been tough, it just isn’t coming together the way I want it to.  I need to look for more supplies.  I will get it as I will never give up on it. Actually I don’t give up on anything anymore.  I am watching the Hatfields and McCoys on TV and it is really good.  I had a few calls from my work friends and that’s helped. I am getting fed up with my back.  The skin is healed now so no oozing but it is swelling again and looks like it going to pop! Will be seeing the Doc again in the morning to see what he says.  I hope everything is ok… I am struggling on what to get my little buddy for Christmas.  She want a horse but that’s a big no! An Ipad is out too so what is it going to be this year?  Need to buy more paint so I can finish a painting that needs to be done for Christmas.  I must contact the buyer this week to let them know when it will be ready.  I need some bubble wrap to protect it too.  Sorry its been a while since my last post but life has been in a twist lately but I will now just go with the flow and let what happens happen.  I have someone who is taking the pressure away for me.  Always smile and be happy because dwelling on negative things or people just keeps it real.  If something isn’t working out and you are sure no change will happen then just let it move on out of your mind because one day it will come back and the answer will be there too.  Let the problem starve, without the energy it will fade away.  Smiles to all and happiness to everyone!!!   🙂  

Richie’s World (a better photo for you )

Another day is done and I have a lot to be thankful for… I went to see my little buddy play her second football game. Yes they won again!!!  So proud of her.I have a few pics of her from my phone so it isn’t great..  She’s the blurry one with the ball.

The next one is also from my phone so sorry, it shows her using a camera at Brixham College.  It’s a trial class evening for full time next year.  Hard to believe she will start at Brixham College next year…. Smiles to all and happiness 🙂
