Body Blushing - Don't Read This If You Get Offended by Real Life!

Well....I am thinking that I may be at the door-step of this thing they call "Menopause" ....a term I use to say I was in when my ex and I separated nearly every two years...."In Between Husbands" that lasted eleven years...or something like that....anyhows, I have been reading a bit on what I am going to go through at this stage of my life, being peri-menopausal - about the mood swings, hot flushes, etc.

My mother couldn't help me much as she was fortunate enough not to have gone through most of these symptoms when it was her turn to become the ultimate beautiful woman-mother that she is....and is still crazy too...that is genetics...lucky to have this kooky traits from both sides....Papa is just as kooky as my Maman!

For the last few days, I have been feeling like I am blushing for no particular reason.....all over my body, but not the night-sweaty thing! I tried to think back to see if I had had a naughty thought or two, but not to my recollection - they just come visiting me whenever they like....when I am doing the laundry, washing the dishes, organizing business, talking with friends and colleagues on the msn messenger thingy...and no, we weren't writing about anything that would make me blush!!!

So, I have decided that this phenomenon called hot flushes, or "Big Body Blushes" ... are just God's way of giving me big warm hugs to let me know that it is alright, I will get through this stage of adjustment and to Welcome me into the new life-stage of Womanhood!

Something had changed in me...ever since I got into my BF program, I am losing fears and phobias right, left and centre!!! My confidence is growing but still have to shut that monkey-chatter up in my head from time to time ....the one that the old me use to listen to AND believe all the lies that it was telling, thanks to what I am doing, I know better and get to stick some virtual duck-tape on its mouth :))

My daughter took me shopping last week and went to park her car at the shopping an underground, the old me would have panicked, having being claustrophobic, gone clammy and would have pleaded with her to park in the open car-park, but this time, all fear was gone and I was calm and shocked by my new-found confidence and serenity! All thanks to BF!

OK ...that's it for now until my next crazy thoughts or adventure in this little corner of the world of mine! Have yourselves a magnificent day!

Bicycles, Dingoes and Kissed by a Wasp...

Thought I might share my achievment of the day with you all......I have finally gone back to riding my bicycle, which was feeling all lonely, neglected and sad looking, with flat tyres and dust on its black handle bars.
I got the tyres all pumped up and ready to go, and put it back in the laundry, where it sleeps.

After two thoughful days, I dusted it off and hopped on it, slowly and carefully riding around the house yard all wobbly like, seeing as it was a long time since I last rode it. Plus, being at home in the privacy of our yard meant that if I fell off, I would only fall on the soft grass and not make this crazy Nonna a fool of herself on the real hard road.

Today...this late afternoon, in the fading light of the day.... after chatting to my good friend overseas, got motivated (and pushed by my fitness coach-like son) to go out and give it a go.

I only went for one kilometre & a bit and back again, as it was getting dark and didn't feel like bumping into any dingoes or startled kangaroos up the road. The puppies were barking upon hearing me crawl back home with jelly legs....must have sounded like a heavy breathing heifer to them!!!

Listening to my motivating CDs helps me to overcome quite a few things that were blocking me from going forward in my life, but now, they seem to be getting better. For a start, I just discovered today I am over being scared of paper wasps as I moved through quite a few of them this morning, going inside the house...I actually got kissed by one!!!
Lucky my mouth was closed as I was breathing in!

Life is certainly not dull at the moment!

My Sloshy Brain

I just read that our brains are 74% water....can you imagine how much the moon is influencing us?!?!?! What with the high tides and other phases of the moon, it is a wonder people go all "lunatic" on full moons and we sometimes feel like our brains are going to burst like a tight water balloon with the high least that's my excuse :))

That means that we can work out a way to "go with the flow" so to speak, drink more water to have the brain stay hydrated and the neurons working at their peak performance, and work in with nature, the moon's cycle and plan our activity around "her mood swings," so as to have a more efficient life..... breezing wait a minute....that's another subject....the butterfly and the hurricanes!

Today, Darling Son and I went to have coffee with my Darling Daughter at her place and I was observing her growing belly with the belly button popping up, and had this amusing image in my mind of her baby girl (yes, it is a 99% chance of a girl bubba) trying to blow a bubble to the outside world, making her presence known! Waiting for the end of May, early June for her to make her grand entrance into this wonderful and fascinating world....Ah...the imaginations!!!!

Trivial Knowledge

Here i am again, attempting to share my whacky thoughts with the world after a long break.....did you missed me?!?

I just found out, after being in Australia for 40 years, that the kangaroos of different genders have different names...either I didn't pay much attention at school or they don't teach you things like this in city schools..... male kangaroos are called "Boomers" and females are "Flyers" it pays to pay attention to little bits of information that passes your never know when you might be needing it....some kid doing their homework, an overseas friend wanting to know more about the wildlife or any other bits and pieces of your country's particular details or even just suddenly getting invited to a Trivia Night, having no time for your brain to soak up the encyclopaedia in order to impress your partner or friend.... mind you, you really have to be present in your life to do that, apart from all the day-to-day things happening in your personal and business life! That's why some companies put these sort of bits of information on their everyday products...if you look carefully at them to see if they have them.... especially the women's personal products...educating the women of the world, one at a time!

Another thing I have learnt is that the scales underneath a snake is called "scutes" I guess whoever made that word for for them was thinking of a snake just scootin' around on these funny things! :)) ........ ok, so I am in a kooky mood, LOL!!

Alright, on that note, I shall scoot outa here and make some yummo diet for me!
