For meee??!


When I was a kid my parents had the responsibility of ensuring that every summer and winter, if needs be, they bought me new clothes. There were times that I didn’t need any, but made up some reasons as to why exactly it was necessary to get that particular pair of shoes or those specific tops…but honestly, what girl in her right mind resists the chance to get new stuff she likes? 😛

Then I moved out of home when I was 18 and realised how lucky I’d been whilst still staying with the folks – free meals, free clothes, free shoes, free accommodation…no worries. And things changed – all of a sudden things weren’t for free and I had to make sure I provided myself with the stuff I needed (though let it be noted, the parentals always helped out where necessary – God bless them). What this meant was that I started understanding the meaning of the word ‘priorities’. Food become a priority…and new clothes and shoes became a luxury.

So…(yes, I’m headed somewhere with all this)…you can imagine just how excited, exstatic and overjoyed I was when GH decided to buy me clothes and shoes! No man I’ve ever dated has ever done that for me! And really…it honestly makes me feel special, loved, appreciated. I’m in a constant state of complete ‘gobsmacked-ness’ at how adorable and amazing this guy is, and through his actions I’m learning more and more how valuable and ‘worth-it’ I really am! 😀

Thanks Babe!!!


A glass half full of Shoes


I got close to 8 hours sleep last night, so I’m not as tired this morning as I usually am – though I’m not using that as a reason not to have coffee – there’s always a reason to have coffee…

I heard something interesting on the radio this morning – kind of like the whole ‘glass half full, half empty’ thing. A shoe company sends two salesmen out to two remote towns to sell some shoes. The first salesman sends a report back to the company: “No-one here has or wears any shoes. Fruitless, so I’m heading back home.”

The second salesman reports: “Send more shoes, no-one here has or wears any. Great opportunity!”

Yeah ok, perhaps this inspires you for a total of 1.4675 seconds. But still, I’ve come to realise that many situations in life can be dealt with differently just by changing your perspective a little. Sure, it’s not easy and it’s probably harder to do – but if makes things better in the long run, then why not?

Ok, now I’m off to get my second cup of coffee 😀
