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

Just wanted to share a nice glass of wine…

I have been messing around with my camera and took these photos to share with you. I would welcome any moments you have on them. Now I saw the fire and had the wine and we all know that fire and alcohol don’t mix.  The photos to me look good but the mix ended up burning my hand.  See the wine was resting in the fire and after I was finished the photo shoot I decided to treat myself to the wine, well the glass was so hot I almost let the glass fall from my now screaming fingers. I quickly, as fast as one with a few glasses already inside ones brain or lack of same put the glass of now molten liquid nectar on the table without spilling a drop. I then proceeded to the fridge not the sink for something cold, to drink that is and poured a fresh glass of gods so called water into wine. Well thats the story behind the scenes of this photographic adventure into my mind.  I think I got what I was envisioning but you can be the judge of these pictures. Post your favourite please and why? xxx more to come

Facebook WHY?

Well I have been on facebook far to long. I will be leaving it for good as it’s become a place for a lot of negative things in peoples lives. I feel that I am being part of it and want no more to do with this. I even asked/told my daughter to leave it also. I will now ost most days on my blog. So keep an eye out for many mindless happenings that pour from my head. HAA HAA

Richie’s World

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….
