Words of Affirmation

Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important–hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.

pretty spot on! I do love being told “I love you” “i missed you” “you make me so happy” etc etc bla bla soppy stuff :)
and i do love hugs, kisses, cuddles and squeezes too!

saw this as my nephew’s facebook status today, and I really liked it…

“Don’t go for looks- they can deceive.

Don’t go for wealth – even that fades away.

Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.”

so… here’s to many happy years of smiles ahead of us! <3

This happens every week. like clock work.

“hello. are you at home?”

“ummmm, yes”

“is the kettle on?”

“ummm, no”

“i’ll be there in about 20 minutes”


“see you now”

“ok, bye”

15 to 20 minutes later. Missed call. Open the gate. Let him in.


“hello… how’s tings”

“fine – how you guys doing”

“good. what’s news?

“mmm, nothing much”

“that’s not very much!!”

“mmm. what’s news with you?



“You busy?”

“um, ja, not to bad… got a bunch of stuff i’m busy with”

“good. how’s peter?”

“he’s cool… at a customer”

“ooooh!! is he busy?”

“a little… it’s getting better.”

“that’s good. it will get better. it doesn;t happen overnight. the first couple of years are tough. but he will make it work”


“how was hunting?”

“it was cool – the beagles had fun”

“how did oscar do?”

“not too bad, he had a couple of  2nd and 3rd places”

“and harry?”

“meh – he’s always one place behind oscar”

“*laugh* – oscar is such a character. just like frankie”

“at least they had fun, and slept all day on sunday, and most of monday too”

“is your neighbour here?”

“uuuuh, no. still not”

“STILL!?? how long has it been now?”

“sheesh, a while… like 2 months or so”

“ja, she must sell that house. maybe mom and i will buy it”

“uhhh, no”

” *laughs* … aaah, jaaa…. can you check the balance?”

“ummm… yes, abc paid Rxyz on Thursday”

“anybody else?”


“ok. tanks”

“no problem”

“aaah well, let me carry on”

The same conversation. every.single.tuesday.

My life feels like a bad comedy at the moment. or maybe a horror movie. can’t quite decide.

What does your bedside table look like? What do you keep at arm’s length and why…?

here’s a pic of my bedside table…:

I want to paint the tables a super high gloss white and change the handles to something funky… it’s all part of my bedroom makeover (which started with painting the wall blue)

Anyway… what’s on my table?

  • A lamp (you tap it to switch it on – it has 3 brightness levels – I love these lamps :)
  • A variety of books (i’m not reading them, so I don’t know why I don’t pack them away!). There’s one or two Harry Potter companion books, my favourite book ever – The Autumn Castle by Kim Wilkins,  a Rick Riordan book, and a Marian Keyes book which i AM reading (slowly).
  • There’s also normally a magazine or two on my table as well.
  • Medicine stuff – some headache pills, iron tablets which i am meant to take every morning with my tea, some tranquilizing aromatherapy drops to help me sleep/
  • A manicure set
  • A torch
  • My iPod docking station/radio thingy


  • A photo frame with a photo of Chips, my sausage dog, who lives with my folks.

What’s on your bedside table??

I tag: Blackhuff, Laura, ShayneBoobahsmom and Jessica

Looking forward to seeing your posts :)
