Vulnerable sits on me..

Vulnerable sits on me..

~~~ You know when you have something HUGE on your mind, you have so many words floating about, some indiscernible, but for the most coherent thought; all focused around a particular subject. You have even discussed it with yourself and come up with some solid advice, but when it comes to real life, and people ask you how you are,what is on your mind; then nothing comes out, words fail you and all you can do is sit there and say “I’m fine”. I am actually not fine,  that is not how I feel right now. I feel anger, grief, confusion, vulnerable, sad and human Sadness clutches my heart as I feel the tragic and sudden loss of a truly amazing friend, vulnerability sits on my shoulders as I realise how suddenly things can change. However, Life around me...

~~~ Feeling slightly anxious today. Want to run for the hills, but not sure the hills would comfort me. Thinking of screaming at the sea, but doubt the sea would hear me. Want to do something, but what if nothing happens?   OK, maybe I am more than just slightly anxious, and feeling quite out of sorts to be honest. Ever felt like that? Ever felt like your actions made no impact and that your words go unheard? Ever felt too scared to act, but nervous at your inability to do? Ever felt like it is all slipping away?? Silently and slowly but unable to do anything to stop it?   Wish I could put my finger on it. I think that my subconscious is trying to tell me something that my mind currently cannot decipher. So instead I am left feeling anxious about...

Big things…

Big things…

~~~ Gosh, I just cannot keep up with the demands of life, love and leghumping. I got such a fright today when my youngest asked me to please take him for a haircut because tomorrow is school. Tomorrow, one more sleep, a few hours away and the curriculum for 2016 gets into full swing…. licks and leghumps to teachers and pupils alike, shit gets real for you guys soon. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY!!! —>>> One more sleep and my pumpkin embarks on his final year at school!!! Then that is it. No more school-school ! And yes, He will still continue to study but it is quite an end of things too. No more school runs at 7am and 3pm, this will be replaced by work/uni runs at all the damn hours. No more uniforms, I will instead have to watch him reinvent...

~~~ Time for some more polish FUN!! Nail Art Ideas Linkup (N.A.I.L.) is a fun way for all us nail polish fans to linkup together to share our designs! N.A.I.L. was originally hosted and created by Brijits Digits, Craftynail, Eeeek Nail Polish! and Nail That Accent!  Siobhan from FOR THE LOVE OF NAIL ART decided to take it over and branch it into South Africa, so Ordinary Misfit, For the love of Nail Art, In the Loop with Coco and I are collaborating to bring this back to life.

It’s not a challenge per se, so you don’t have to do each week if you don’t want to, it’s just a fun way to linkup with others in the nail art...
