It has been so long since we’ve had a coffee.  Sorry we aren’t at our usual coffee shop – work has been mad and my projects have overtaken all my spare time.  So, without too much pomp and ceremony, I’d like to welcome you to my bat cave!! Continue reading

There are a thousand dreams
In this world to be turned into reality
There are a thousand souls
In this world seeking the way to spirituality

There are a thousand doors
In this world unlocking the most promising creations
There are a thousand roads
In this world leading to desired destinations

There are a thousand hearts
In this world beating for whom they admire
There are a thousand ambitions

Saturday Night Confessions

Put the lights down low, hear the music flow.  

Let it swing and sway as I make my way.  

You may ask to dance, search for some romance;

I’m not here for that and will refuse you flat.  

Just let me dance, let me show,

Why we need to get to lose control

Flash those lights, shake those hips

No don’t pucker up those lips

All night long, hit those songs

Stay up with me, it ain’t wrong

To just dance! Continue reading

First Advent Wensfriesday

Happy Wensfriesday!!

I have so much to be grateful for this week. Where do I begin? Oh, with the wonderful fact that I conquered NaNoWriMo with many friends and made new ones in the process. It’s been an amazing experience and something I shall try to participate in every year as it taught me that I am capable of so much more. I know it sounds strange but I felt more of a writer over this past month than I have for all these years! Congratulations to everyone who took part. I’m looking forward to seeing you again next year.

On the work front, I have officially been hired as the school Librarian. After two years of volunteering and helping to restructure the school library, they have created the role and hired me! To say I am pleased would be an understatement.

After spending a fabulous weekend with friends and family, I have started the advent on a loving, sharing vibe which I hope to continue throughout the season. My mum is celebrating her birthday next week and after all she’s been through, we are grateful to get a chance to celebrate with her. Taking a moment to count my blessings is what Wensfriesday is all about. Looking at the positives in my life.

To top it all, my cupboards are full of chocolates and sweeties and cake has been in abundance for the past couple of weeks. Now it’s pretty difficult to be down when there’s cake!

I nearly forgot! Christmas tree is up and I’ve chosen Hugo as his name!! Everyone else disagrees but no-one has come up with a decent name, so until then, he shall remain as Hugo!

If you have something you’re happy about or grateful for, I’d love to hear about it. If it’s sad news, let me know. Hopefully I can spread the Wensfriesday love and cheer you up.

That’s my Wensfriesday done and dusted.

Signing out as Eloise the Author, Librarian, Friend, Mother and of course Blogger! Have a great day. xx

It’s #Wensfriesday!!

Happy Wensfriesday everyone! For all the NaNo bloggers out there, hope you’re battling through and making progress on your awesome stories.

This is the last Wensfriesday I will be 39 so let’s make it a good one.

Break out the secret stash of chocolates and help me celebrate the countdown to my birthday!

Have a great day…and the reason is you!

Sweetie Time 😄

Monday Madness!

Ever feel like cranking the music up and dancing like a crazy person at the end of a loooong Monday? Well that’s exactly what I did today. Tuna bake for dinner…done! Kids’ homework, reading and arguments over nothing and everything…done! We hadn’t even touched 6.30pm yet and the prospect of curling up on the sofa, sifting through blogs at a leisurely pace was replaced with, “Mum, can we play musical statues? We watched so much TV this weekend I wanna dance!”

Now this might not be normal in some families, but in mine, this is quite acceptable. From my first child to the last, I’ve encouraged dancing. No specific type of music; anything that has life and a beat has us swinging and swishing, bopping and jumping till we are breathless. This is something indescribable about moving your body to a rhythm, feeling it and laughing as you watching tiny people mimicking your moves. The crazier they are, the more the laughter. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, dancing is of course fun!

The long ride to the hospital tonight was great. My eldest daughter decided to come for a ride and we sang at the tops of our voices to our favourite cd, Maroon 5. Finding a ward full of smiling elderly ladies welcoming our presence and greeting us like long lost friends warmed our hearts. My mum felt chatty today too and surprised the nurses with full audible sentences. A really great visit. Did I mention I gave her a hair cut. It was so matted from the operation and weeks in hospital, I decided to give her a short cut that accented her pretty features. I think she likes it. Hopefully!

So, to sum up, it’s been an awesome Monday and touch wood, the rest of the week will flow positively. Now it’s your turn. How was your day? Anything interesting happen this weekend?

Looking forward to hearing from you on your day. 🙂
