Well how quickly can bad habits return..?? James has only been gone 3 days and here I am, at 2 in the morning, working journaling and blogging..!!! Shhhhhhhh don't tell him, pleeeease, lmao. Mind you I am so far behind with everything. I have had emails all week asking if I am ill or had a major crisis. Thankyou, thankyou for your concern, but in fact I have been living a normal life....Yes you heard correct, whilst he was home I had to toe the line and do "normal" things.!! Firstly, I was barred from working 14 hrs a day and I had to go to bed before 10 and not get up until at least 8, and only after I had drunk tea in bed. I then had to eat breakfast, WTF..!!!! unheard of I know. I also had to eat proper food, beautifully cooked and presented, off a plate, at regular intervals, and learn to try and keep it in my stomach.!!! I had to put in regular appearances in the boxing ring, and make time for myself with long, hot baths and journaling time.And then to top it off I was barred from working in the evenings and instead had to snuggle on the couch , with a glass of wine whilst watching dvd's. It's quite a relief to get back to being extremeley "un normal". Now don't get me wrong although I really enjoyed myself and quickly got the hang of it, how the hell are you supposed to get any work done..??? I am soooooo far behind, and before you all start, I mean further behind than I normally am..!!! lol.
So what is the answer..??? I really don't want to go back to my old life, but I need to put the hours in. I,ve got 5 weeks before he's back home, so suggestions on a postcard please. The choices at the moment veer from, cloning myself, winning the lottery or declare myself bankrupt....ha ha. I,m getting too old for all this now.
I don't know if any of you caught Secret Slumdog Millionaire this evening,( yes I now even watch the telly ), but it has left me in a really sober mood. It is unbelievable that these people live in such poverty. The children have nothing and yet the smiles on their faces and cheeriness was heartbreaking. Living their lives on the street or if they are lucky in a one room shack, constantly worrying about their homes being demolished by the Government.Nobody should have to live like that and I feel extemely grateful that I have a roof over my head and food on my table, not to mention a bed to sleep in and shoes on my feet. It is sooo easy to be insular and moan about our circumstances and problems, but not after that programme and it has really made me think about how much we take for granted. I greatly admire the fabulous people who have devoted their lives to trying to help them, but it seems to be an impossible task. How can they keep bringing such hope and help into peoples lives, day after day?? They will all be in my thoughts and prayers for a long time, I am certain.
I am in the middle of getting the samples ready for preview weekend ( 30th, 31st Jan ), way behind with magazine articles ( sorry Louisa ), trying to get my demo samples done for CHA. Which reminds me, what is the weather like out there.?? It's always cold in the Convention centres, due to the air conditioning, but I can't remember California in January, so help me out please. The less clothes in the case, the more room to bring stuff back, methinks...
I,m afraid I still havent had the time to work out my photo problem on here, I tell you when I finally do there will be reams of them. I have got all my holiday ones, tons of journaling, samples, Fabby Dabby students hard at work ( as if, lol ) and an abundance of heels for shoe watch ( yes I have had a wee bit of a splurge again, don't think the therapy is working, really, lmao ). I am behind about 30 wardrobe remixes, so may have to abandon them and start again. Some fab ones from Emmi's birthday. If you have never experienced Abba singstar then you havent lived. It is hilarious. Similiar to Karaoke, but you compete against each other whilst dueting. It doesn't matter if you are terrible as long as you put the effort in. I normally hate anything like that but really enjoyed myself, the girlies are barmy, and next time they invite us round, they will need to provide complimentary Tena Ladies... I haven't a clue who they get it from..!!! And not sure what I am going to do in America as I now seem to have lost the camera lead, the spare camera lead and the universal camera lead. Don't ask cos I don't really know.!! How can anyone lose so many..??
Blimey Moses, I can't believe it, Jeremy Kyle is on at this time in the morning..Woop woop, I love him. Is that really bad to admit that in public.?? lmao. I don't care though, nothing cheers me up or makes me feel grateful for my life than a double bill of Jeremy Kyle..!!!!! I,ll never make it upstairs at this rate.. Especially to an empty bed. Aww, am I going soft in my old age..?? soft or doolally, not quite sure which. James does, he says living with me is like "care in the community", and that when he comes home he is going to apply for carer's allowance. I would get really offended but hes probably correct, lmao, I'm not sure I could cope with me never mind live with me. I thought you were supposed to mature gracefully as you got older, maybe my hormones havem't kicked in yet... Ah well I like it in my little world and the voices seem to like me being there so I'll stay a bit longer..
Ok got to go now, Jeremy will be revealing the "all important DNA tests" lol.
