Had to write about this as 1. It’s funny and 2. I think I need to raise awareness to this problem.
Had a very lovely evening at my daughters, lots of food, wine and extremely good company. As it was so late when it all came to a close, you never want the evening to end, especially after a few too many delicious wines do you? I decided….er…..My daughter, decided that I was going to stay the night.

Waking up to a lovely cup of tea, such a treat when you live on your own. My daughter informed me that I could have a shower and use what ever I needed to. Such a welcome idea as must admit I wasn’t feeling the best.

As I step under the water I begin to feel human again and decide to take advantage of her hospitality and wash my hair, I pick the shampoo up and get a nice big blob on my hand and rub tenderly into my hair. Mmmmm no lathering up, what’s going on, try to read bottle but print so small and no glasses in bathroom. Think I can make out a C oh! It’s conditioner, try another bottle. Big dollop on hand and repeat process, head very delicate so could do without this. No lather! Look at second bottle, no, that does not say conditioner surely? Yes.

I am struggling now and to be honest I just want to get out, I look along all the bottles on shelf, I admit to myself I can’t really see what any of them say. What to do? Relief spreads slowly through me, I see a bottle of baby shampoo, you cannot get that bottle wrong as it is very distinctive. Happily I squeeze some out and quickly wash my hair, feels so much better. Now time to condition it….well you have to after you’ve washed your hair!

The day of love is almost over, are you pleased with your cards and presents, little tokens of love. Does it actually mean anything being told those three little words today? Do you actually mean it when you say them today or are you just being led by the day?

If the person your with says it every day in text, email and on the phone, does it mean more saying it today or are you so used to it that it does not mean anything?

Maybe the person that says I love you very occasionally with tenderness and feeling has got it right? How do you feel if they never say it and just tell you “you know I do”?

Then some people just never believe it no matter how they are told, once your heart has been broken the sticky tape is there!

Sometimes I’m glad I am single…..hope you all had a good day, however it was said x

I have always thought my cat was very clever and special as she comes in to me every morning and taps me to wake me up, very good if I have forgotten to set alarm.

But no, I find out today on Facebook it’s nothing special a lot of cats do it 😔

She does however play fetch the ball with me! Honest, I will do a video. She will be special!

At least it only happens once a year, only trouble is once we have eaten them we then have to diet for three days. I have solved the problem this year, they say fruit is good for you and healthy so I had strawberry’s with the pancakes…..ok, yes I did have a bit of clotted cream. No excuses I’m weak I admit it. I will do an hour on the exercise bike for the next three days, honest I will!

See what I mean, you couldn’t say no to that could you? Well that’s it over for another year, only trouble is we are now fat and got to paint the kitchen ceiling because our tossing of the pancakes was not up to scratch.

Happy Pancake Day x

Will this push me to accomplish or just put a spanner in the works and put me off! Have to carry on now and further blogs will let you know the result, I am sure!

1. Write something every day. Starting with a nice easy one.

2. Enter at least 6 competitions this year. Very, very brave but I can at least try.

3. Finish novel this year! Not sure about this one.

4. Send off at least 5 short stories in the next few months. Notice no time scale on this one, I am being nice to myself.

5. Buy a camper and travel round Italy for 6 months, eating, drinking red wine and writing. Would love to do this now!

6. Remember to Tweet, Face Book and Blog more every day. Need more time to read all the blogs I love to follow.

7. Have enough money to drink Champagne instead of wine.

8. Find a way to eat chocolate and not ask if my bum looks big now!

9. Spoil my grandchildren.

10. Develop a way to stop slugs eating my vegetables. That’s if all my veg grow this year, if not I will just say that the slugs ate everything! Thought…..find time to grow the vegetables!

11. Throw a massive party and invite everybody I know and tell them “My book has been published”

12. Was going to say, find my soul mate get married and live happily ever after……..think that’s a dream.

Up-date
I have realised I am not getting on as well as what I was expecting, so I have to do better. Must write more everyday or maybe spend two days a week just writing. The garden is going to need doing soon, I feel stress coming on. Must get my vegetables in so I have something to eat in summer, mmmmm dreaming of fresh picked strawberry’s now.

There is also one more thing to go on my list and that is to open a nice friendly book shop/coffee shop with big comfy sofas and do things like childrens story time, homework club and theme day’s so they get to love books.

The adult’s could have a book club or even a writing club, so many ideas. Just need to win the lottery now to buy the shop!

Happy dreaming x
