You have been told it doesn't hurt , that forty is the new 21 and your life is in front of you , but what life you start to wonder when the cake and party popper have disappeared.

3. At the doctors you  skip over the fashion magazine and start to look at the recipe magazines , after all you now go shopping in your sunglasses.

How Do You Measure Yourself ?

How Do you measure yourself ?

I don't mean measuring yourself height wise , I mean do you measure yourself against other people?,  it is something I do with extreme caution as your can walk the thin line with your confidance and I am not the jealous type .I always try to be the best I can be and I really don't like to have any situation unresolved.

Healthy competition is good but don't let it overtake your life and worse still your kids life , now I don't have the competive aspect of the playground to deal with. 

My values is one thing I don't measure against other people , and whilst I am quite open in my blogging I do hold back . They say you should never work with animals or children , well I'm a teaching assistant and I have cats so that didn't quite go to plan.


Also I measure myself in tea levels as if I don't have enough tea I really can not function very well.

Panoramic Wordless Wednesday







A Quiet Walk

A quiet half an hour sees reflection it is good to relax without spiralling down like why I was always picked last for rounders . Why loud people seem to be the bees knees occasionally and why my hair seems cursed by the hair fairies.

That half an hour sees me here at the woods at the bottom of my road.



Perception you see is where I trip up , I do wonder how I am perceived but that's  
Just part of life.

I wish I had swishy hair not that swishy hair equates to confidance.

Relaxing is what I need to do more of here :
