Surgery time!

Hi everyone,

I found out last night that I am going to be having surgery tomorrow - Thursday :(
I'm having my four wisdom teeth out, so I may need to take a little time off to recover. I will be going under general anesthetic and hopefully get some good painkillers to mask the pain.

Say goodbye little Toothy! :)

Hopefully talk to you all soon. Wish me luck!

Time is Love

Hey everyone,

Valentines Day is upon us again, today 14th February! This got me pondering on my thoughts around love, what it means to me, and LOVE in a general sense of the word. As I am a single lady I instead spent my day with the people that I love and care about - those making an impact on my heart. Ohhhhh......

We all know that love can instill that great feeling of joy or crushing sadness within us all. Sometimes love can bring us to a loss for words, and there is no denying that others describe it better. There is really no way to fully explain the phenomenon of love, and I am not even going to say that I could.  So I thought it best to let some people who have come before me to say it with words. Some of the greatest philosophers have tried to effectively sum up the myriad of emotions that love involves.

The fact that love is an emotion that everyone experiences, there is needless to say, very many famous quotes about love. Here are some of my favourites:

“Take love, multiply it by infinity and take it to the depths of forever.. and you still have only a glimpse of how I feel for you.”
- Meet Joe Black

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.”
-Jimmy Hendrix

 “A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson and that he saved me… in every way that a person can be saved. I don’t even have a picture of him. He exists now… only in my memory.” – Old Rose
- Titanic

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”
-Mother Theresa

“Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go.
You have made my life complete and I love you so.
Love me tender, love me true, all my dreams fulfill.
For, my darlin’, I love you and I always will.”
-Elvis Presley

As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.
-William Shakespeare

As long as there is a human race, quotes on love will continue to surface to inspire, fulfill, and move people.

Who do you love? Do you have any favourite quotes on LoVe?

Come with me

Hi everyone,

After recently finally joining the iPhone revolution.....long awaited indeed. I am now noticing I'm taking a lot more pictures throughout my day, be it at home or out and about. Mostly randomness I know, but I am actually enjoying the concept of documenting my journeys through life and being able to look back on the mundane, the funny and the adventures I take (with my iPhone in hand). So here we go with my first post of a type of 'My Week in Photos' style blog post!

  2. I cooked Pork Dumplings for the first time = delicious success!
  3. My adorable budgie Angas
  4. Nail art - neon leopard print
  5. Home made Feta Bruschetta with grapes for lunch mmmmm
  6. Royale Eggs Benedict whilst out for breakfast one morning
  7. My ghost hunting supplies for ghosting adventure with friends last weekend
  8. A double shot espresso caramel mocktail shake! Wow!
  9. My budgie Angas as his second love, after me of course....chewing PAPER!

Saturday, February 4


The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the door sill
Where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

~ Rumi 
One of the greatest poets in the history of the world I think :)
What makes you happy?
