I Forgive Myself For...........

Feb 25, 2012

As I race through each week at break-neck speed, I seem to constantly live in a state of guilt for all the things I should or shouldn't have done.

So I am going to.....

............ forgive myself for not phoning back a friend who
only ever phones me when she has a problem (do you
have these friends?)

.......... I forgive myself for undermining my worth by sometimes
comparing myself to others success

.......... I forgive myself for getting irritated with an elderly parent
simply because his brain was not working as fast as mine

....... I forgive myself for being 20 mins into a car journey and
not admitting to Hubs I was holding the map upside down

......... I forgive myself for not following up my dental appointment. I have put
"Dr Teeths" children through private school since living in Spain. So I decided
I'm not putting them through University also ;-)

......I forgive myself for using hormones as an excuse
for my "usual" crazy madness

......I forgive myself for burning my chocolate puddle desserts
because I was distracted on Pinterest, but telling Hubs they are meant to be
slightly crunchy ;-)

.......I forgive myself for running through life so fast that
I not only forget where I've been, but also where I'm going

.........I forgive myself for never sticking to a blogging schedule
(I'm convinced my followers don't really care)

......I forgive myself for only being able to think about what I was
going to have for lunch during a meditation class, because
I was SO hungry. Enlightenment passed me by yet again!

.......I forgive myself for bumping into an old client and all
through the conversation I was only trying to remember her
name. The worst thing was she remembered mine
and everything about me

.......I forgive myself for giving up when I still had something to
give, but tiredness got the better of me.

So my Lovelies, what do you forgive yourself for?

C'mon confess, and
just let it go :-)

Sometimes.......I get frightened thinking about the future. I know it's
completely futile, but it happens

Sometimes......I wonder what my Mum would have made of some of the life
decisions I have made; decisions I made blindly because she was not around to guide me

Sometimes........I get paralyzed with fear thinking about breast cancer and
whether I will get it (again another futile thought!)

Sometimes........I feel there will never be advances in cancer; not while the
pharmaceutical industry have ultimate control over medical/scientific research

Sometimes........I do stop and just breathe (Hubs calls it "zoning out" ;-)

Sometimes......I wish I could just ring up some of my wonderful blogging
friends and say, "Hey! how do you fancy meeting for a coffee and a
girlie chat".

Sometimes .......I lose hours with Twitter and Pinterest

Sometimes........I wonder what my legacy will be
as I don't have children.

I hope it will be, "she was a good example of a hard-worker,
a better example of a a daughter, and the
best example of a wife and loyal and sincere friend".

Sometimes.........I can spend hours in my kitchen cooking
up a feast for no-one in particular

Sometimes.......I wonder if I followed the "right" path

Sometimes.......I get overwhelmed by how lucky I really am

Sometimes......I wonder what it would be like to be drunk.
I'm a tee-total, and have never been drunk (sometimes
I think it could be fun)

Sometimes.........I wonder if I will ever find the perfect

I ALWAYS.................write in my Gratitude journal (this
is my 5th year of doing so, and I love reading back over old

I NEVER................ask "Why me?" because the answer
always comes back "Why not?".

What are your "sometimes", "always" and "nevers"?
As always I would love to hear

Love is..........

Feb 8, 2012

* letting you take the first sip of his cappuccino

*a soft, unexpected touch

*what causes you to lose concentration

*looking forward most to aprés-ski ;-)

* knowing what each other are thinking without saying a word

*not asking how much your new shoes and dress cost ;-)

*letting her take over the bathroom

*not complaining even though he only has 1/5th of
the wardrobe space

* not saying anything when he turns over in bed and takes all the
covers with him

*finding strength in each other when disaster strikes

* a necessity not a luxury

*not letting time run out

* him buying you your favorite magazine without you even asking

*letting him drive with the car roof down even though you
know you will arrive at your destination looking like a troll

*the reason we are here

*living spontaneously, not according to a life plan

*the fairytale you want it to be

* holding onto every precious moment

*when your future is as crystal clear as it can be

*always bringing out the best in each other

* not speaking for hours, but knowing the other is a touch away

*wanting the same things in life

*not caring about compromise; it's a given

Please share what love is for you..........................

Madrid Fashion Week 2012

Feb 4, 2012

Well as this week was Madrid Fashion week, I thought I would bring you some Spanish designers who are perhaps as not as well known outside Spain, but who I think create gorgeous "wearable" designs (Ok, not to be worn to the supermarket, but I think you get my drift ;-)

So here goes:

Jesus del Pozo

Not sure if poodle comes with dress ;-)

I can see Kate Middleton wearing something
like this. What do you think?

I love these, but don't like the footwear
they've put with it :-(

Juanjo Oliva

I love ALL his designs. I can't choose a fav.

Adolfo Dominguez

I love all the gorgeous pastel shades, and really
LOVE their sandals!

Amaya Arzuaga (a fav of Penelope Cruz)

I love the first dress.

What do you think? Do you like any of them?
What's your fav?

I'll bring you some more later this week ;-)
