Life's Pendulum

Hi Peeps, I hope you haven't got too bored of popping by, waiting for me to finally write something.

Our holiday was wonderful, we enjoyed laughter filled days as a family with dear friends. Disney has a unique (!) way of ensuring that you are unable to think of anything outside, which meant a complete break away from reality.

Mr Magic and I both finished our runs, a half for me and a full marathon for him, the mini Magics where do I begin? Their holiday was non stop, so much fun they still struggle to remember which bit was best, how many times they went on favourite rides and who got which bits for their Mr Potato Heads......!!!!

We left lots of things simmering on life's stove when we popped across the pond back in January and on our return a few pots seem to have boiled over, so please bear with me while I am slightly distracted, mopping up muddles here and there.

I fear blogging could be somewhat sporadic as I struggle to find words at the moment, as well as that little thing called time. Happy February all. xx

Hello honey,
Aah, life's ebb and flow. Hold onto your memories of that 'away from it all' holiday as you juggle to contain those boiling pots.
Sending you big hugs and lots of love,

Sending virtual hugs your way as I understand from Denise that things are in a bit of a 'muddle' at the moment. Chin up!

I just popped by after a visit over at Denise's place, my my, she said such awfully nice things about you and since I was in the neighborhood, I thought I would stop by and say Hullo!
What a lovely place you have here, I am smitten with your wrist warmers, gorgeous! Well, it is grand to meet you and if you are ever out my way, do pop in and say hello. I must go as the chickens are out and need putting in.

May your days be bright my dear!

Hi Debbie, hopping over from Denise's to send a little happiness and balance your way. Hope the pendulum is swinging in a positive direction very soon.

Hello there, I just popped by Denise's blog and she was saying what a hard time you are having at the moment and that you deserve a little happiness in your life. So because of this i am sending you a big big virtual hug and a massive cup of virtual tea and posting you this poem in hopes that it may brighten your day a little ...
If by Rudyard Kipling
IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

sending positive thoughts your way
Big Hugs

Disney must have been a magical time (oh dear, pun intended, I suppose) - we went there when I was 6 and I still have extraordinarly strong memories of it. Please do have a Happy February yourself, and know that we're thinking of you amongst the muddles as well as the magic.

Just thought I'd send you cheery Friday good wishes having heard over at Denise's blog that things are a little tricky for you at the moment. She obviously thinks the world of you and you sound like the kind of friend that we'd all like to have! Keep smiling. Katie x
