Dear Readers

You all know this little game by now.  I start and complete a few sentences and then you play along and finish the same sentences in the comments section.


I have become……. a bit of a coffee snob.  There is no doubt in my mind about this.  I really battle to drink poor quality coffee.  Sometimes I force myself to drink it in order to be nice, but it’s not an easy thing for me to do.

I’m not….very good with goodbyes.  And by goodbyes I mean having to bid the people closest to me farewell and know I won’t see them for more than a reasonable time of say a week or two.  I get very sad, and while i generally hold my pose well at the time of the goodbye I do eventually shed a couple of tears.  But don’t go and tell everybody I’m a softy and ruin my street cred OK?

This morning….I was surprised with 2 very unexpected phone calls from old friends I haven’t spoken to in forever.  It was a very pleasant surprise.

I realised…that I probably became more of a grownup in the last 3 months than I did in the 4 years preceding them.

I love…..evaluating my life and realising that I’m well on my way to fulfilling my dreams.  Things that I’ve thought were ONLY dreams are suddenly becoming reality…it’s a wonderful feeling.

It’s OK….to feel insecure sometimes, just don’t make a habit of it.

Being a hero…..can be overrated sometimes.  I’ll be heading to a doctor soon to have my ankle checked out.  I’m petrified at the thought that something has gone wrong with the metal plate, but the pain is truly unbearable and walking and driving are becoming increasingly difficult.

I love….the cold weather we are having today.  I’m SUCH a winter baby it’s not even funny.  the cold weather makes me happy:)

My family…is the best family in the entire world…TRUST me:)

Now it’s your turn.  Looking forward to reading your sentences!

  1. I have become… A wanna be stay at home mommy… Please can I stay home and play with my babies?!?!

    I’m not… Loving this cold weather. 😦

    This morning… I only managed to express 100ml of milk, poor baby will have to have some from the frozen stash.

    I realised… That money might not make you happy but it helps 🙂

    I love… coffee… I never used to drink it but I LOVE one good cup a day!

    It’s OK… Im taking double the dose of my happy meds and thats ok!

    Being a hero… is for superman and iron man according to my kid, he would rather be darth Mawl, welcome to the dark side!

    I love… my sunglasses, I was without them for a week and I almost cried with gratitude when I got them back.

    My family… means the world to me. I honestly dont know what I would do without them!

  2. I have become… A soccer mom. Who would ever have thought?
    I’m not… supposed to be playing around on the interwebs right now, but am sooo not motivated to work today.
    This morning… I sent my eldest son to school in tracksuit pants because he lost his school pants at soccer practice yesterday. I wanted to send him in his underpants but his father intervened…
    I realised… in the course of this past week that my opinion of someone determines to a large extent the degree to which I can be influenced by them. When someone I once looked up to betrays my trust and respect, it doesn’t matter what apparent position of seniority they may hold, their expectations of me no longer matter.
    I love… the fact that I got into my jeans from before my last 2 pregnancies this morning. And they’re not even stretch jeans. And I don’t have a muffin top when I wear them. 🙂
    My family… is entering an exciting time, with lots of things going on for each of us. And I feel like, although things have been tough for some time (and will probably not stop being tough for a while yet), we are all going to be okay.

  3. I’m not doing enough. I could do a lot more to make more of myself.
    This morning I am in bed with flu! I am feeling so grotty its quite ridiculous… but I have had a chance to catch up on some blog reading!
    I realised that I remain ridiculously insecure when it comes to my talents and abilities…
    I love my life! I have to pinch myself regularly to make sure I’m awake!
    It’s OK not to get on well with every person you meet.
    Being a hero is not something to be aspired to. More people should work at being a hero to their nearest and dearest rather than to the rest of the world!
    My family sometimes makes me want to move somewhere far far away…

  4. I have become……. fidgety about what I want to tackle next both professionally and personally. Time to sit down and figure out where I want to go from here.

    I’m not….unhappy at the moment. I’m not going to say I’m happy just yet, but I’m not unhappy, which is a move in the right direction for a while. I think.

    This morning….I was surprised at how little traffic there was on my normal route to work. Bonus for a Monday.

    I realised…that even when I own up to my mistakes and try my best to make things right, there are certain things I just cannot fix, and I need to be ok with that and let go.

    I love… Boy that is Friend, aka my best friend. Without him, I would never have felt the freedom to allow myself to feel, because even if feeling is a mistake, I know I’ll be alright, because he will be there if it hurts.

    It’s OK….that people don’t always like me.

    Being a hero…..starts with saving yourself.

    I love…. All the new experiences I am having.

    My family…is too far away at the moment. Wish we could sit down for dinner together.
