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!!!   🙂

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 🙂

Just when all is going well I had to go back into Surgery… Two times my back was drained and then it came back, a Seroma.   I had it opened up and re- sutured. I have some swelling but it is draining and it is very tender. Other than that I am doing fine.  In the morning I will be trying a new recipe for a healthy snack.  I want to become leaner and one day want o be able to jog. I can’t wait for an easy life, no pain, no worries( that will never happen as I have my little girl).I am going to try and finish my photography course this week so I will have my certificate in photography.  I have so many ideas but need to save for my camera again. I will buy used but the same one as I really like it, canon 5D Mark 11…..I keep a smile on all the time and try my best not to let anyone down but I know that when I go to sleep I sleep with a warm heart…. Smile to all and happiness…

What a day after the storm!!! The rain and wind kept me up most of the night.  I would just about hit dream zone and then the noise would have me thinking again…. It’s nice to think but the mind has a way of carrying on into the dreaded “WHAT IF” which is a curse for the sleepy person.  I had so much going on today and managed to catch up late in the day… Can’t wait for the week-end as my buddy is staying with me… We need to have some good fun, maybe we could bake bread, paint or soccer!!!!  Just think of all your real friends the ones that will always be there for you no matter if you are in the wrong, hurt or even upset with you.  I can count the real friends on one hand.  Sorry but I will never say who they are as they already know… Everyone else is a friend but in a different category.  I found that if you don’t try to find happiness, it appears magically.  I always find a reason to be thankful for at least one thing or part of a day before I close my eyes and enter the other world that I occupy.  In the other world I can do anything and all I have to do is think it and it just happens. If I think of you then you are with me.  How cool is that!!!! If I want to fly, then I can fly..  My dream world or is it the real world is my favorite one.  When I am awake as we know it, might really be the sleeping world and the sleeping world is the real world.  It’s had to know as we have no real answers to “us” or who we are or what we are.  Look at the rest of the creatures on this speck of dust we call earth, we are the only creatures that worry, stress and are extremely GREEDY!!!  It’s know wonder we die early and become sick.  We could learn a lot form others living with very little, they always smile  🙂  I need to paint this week-end as I need to finish these two big paintings so I can start a new idea, “The city at night” all done with my syringes…. It will be at night but with loads of color…Heres a photo of my stone/rock forest I created on the beach 2.5 years ago…  Smiles to all and happiness 🙂

Starting this blog tonight is wishing my little buddy GOOD LUCK in her first Football match.  I will be there to cheer her on.  We practice when we can and she has a killer kick!!!

Ok now what have I been up to, well I only have two more test to take before I get my Photography Certificate.. Yaaa for me.  I might try to finish them this week before I start work next week.   I have been off due to pain and surgery in my back.  I am still tender but am cutting down my pills and using the simulator daily.. With all that’s going on it’s now just a moment in time and it has passed. I can’t explain how I feel tonight except tired and happy.  Sleep has been a problem but I am working on it..  I might do some more work on the Paintings as time is getting short.  Both big paintings are hanging on my wall and really look great but they still talk to me, Shoot me up with the colour drugs!!!!

Smiles to all and happiness too.. 🙂  Yes my favorite or one of them cooking and Thai cooking is my favorite areas.
