Merry Christmas Everyone

Hello everyone. It's hard to believe that Christmas is here once more. I have been flat out. Work has been rather pre-occupying. I had a wee problem with a lack of hours and felt quite panicky. Working some relief hours in the local nursing home has been a godsend. I am trying to finish off the last minute bits and pieces. I have been away from here for ages and have missed it. I miss catching up with all of you. I was shocked to hear about my fav other man Mort and so pleased to hear a happy outcome. Thanks for the txts Mort. sad to notice more losses in J-Land. This time of year is especially hard when we lose people or suffer hardships or ill health, so, to those in that position, I hold you all that little bit closer and will say a wee prayer for you all.

Took a mad turn yesterday and went to Marks and Spencers to buy the both sets of parents a gift, now for those of you who are not familiar with that store, may I just tell you that It is rather more expensive than the others. Good quality though. Not a place I frequent!! lol. So there I was absolutely shattered, wandering aimlessly around M&S searching for 2 gifts. I eyed up the hampers but at £50 each, I found that way over my budget. I was told by the lady that they could make them up with Items I choose and they would wrap them up and add a bright red or gold bow. The baskets were £10 on their own so I declined, as I would never ever pay a tenner for an empty basket! lol. I chose x2 canvas bags and chose my goodies like christmas cake and yule log and chocs etc. They looked amazing when they were wrapped and I am glad i got them, I just hope they all like them.

I don't have to worry about my wee treasure as Santa brings all hers!! Hmmm. What a wonderful man he is. I will duly write my note to him and make sure I put it somewhere he will definately see it! lol. I must go and grab a coffee and lay out work clothes for tomorrow. I will get round to reading your journals just as soon as I can. Feel free to email me. I hope you all have a spectacular Christmas and New Year. Be Happy. Love and Best Wishes to you all. Take Care, Back Soon. xx

Wee Treasure has Crutches

Hello everyone,

After checking my wee treasure's ankle on Monday, I decided to take her to the Accident and Emergency department of our local hospital to get it checked out further and thankfully it is not broken, only very badly sprained. It was very fast from beginning to end which was brilliant. I had to get a taxi both ways which proved rather costly! luckily I had put some Christmas money aside which was good,

They gave her crutches after putting on a bandage and sent us on our way. I had a wee sleep when we got home, think it helped. I had parents evening at the school last night. Mister man and I arrived on the motorbike which turned a few heads! It didn't help that he was whizzing around in all the nooks and crannies of the playground reliving his youth as he "could get away with it now!" lol. Boys will be boys. I gave him a rather dirty look when I got off the back and after stifling giggles we went in to the main hall.

There was a noticeboard on the wall with all the seating arrangements for the teachers which we were to study and find our way from, and I was then instantly happy I wasn't trying to find my way myself! I could see devilment in mister mans eyes when we sat down as he said he had an idea and scuttled off, only to return with the 2 sheets of paper off the main board!!! I shook my head as I listened to him saying "This will make it much easier to find these teachers!" lol. I bet it would! Shame for everyone else tho!

We had 6 to get through and all were positive apart from English which almost had us falling off our seats. The teacher said she couldn't see our wee treasure doing her Foundation exam which is the main one for all. Thankfully she went on to say she wanted her to go for credit, which is the highest! Wow! One very proud mama I can tell you and her dad was speechless. We were really impressed. Clever girl. We exchanged the old verbal war of words......"she takes after,no she takes after me"! lol. It doesn't matter to us what path she chooses in life, we will be right behind her every step of the way. Take Care, Back Soon. xx

Thank You J-Landers

Hello everyone. I am delighted to have just received an email from Val telling me I have won Sentence of the week again. Wow! Thank you so much. I just adore this wee game and missed it terribly when I was offline. After such a hard time of it lately, this is just the tonic to put a smile back on my gloomy chops! lol.

I have been working non stop straight through and only managed to really relax for a few hours this weekend. My wee treasure went over on her ankle earlier today and had me runnning around daft getting her comfortable. Poor wee sausage, it is such a painful thing doing that. I will make sure she gets plenty of rest.

I will hopefully get round to reading more journals soon and catch up on what everybody has been up to. I am still finding my way round and found it rather frustrating to keep being booted off line whenever I tried to add a picture!. Hmmm, most infuriating!. Anyway, I will get there in the end, I am sure. I will go now and check on my wee treasure. Thank you for giving me the honour of being a winner again. I am thrilled. Take Care, Back Soon. xx

Swings and Roundabouts

Hello everyone, I have had a rather rotten time of it lately, hence the delay in posting any new entries. I lost one of my clients to a sudden death and I was shocked to the core. I spent a whole day crying constantly trying to get my head round the sad news. A beautiful lady with such a wonderful outlook on life. I decided to go to the funeral. I felt very alone as I walked into the church hoping to slip into the back seats and was totally taken aback at the packed church!.

I have never seen anything like it before. that spoke volumes to me about the lady I had been caring for on a daily basis. The service was beautiful. Very funny in parts. I held it together by singing as loud as i could and praising myself inwardly. I decided against the next part and slowly walked home feeling very strange. You know that when someone is poorly, you go on the journey with that person. On this particular occassion it was so unexpected and it will take me a wee while to get back on my feet properly. I will never forget her and keep our laughter together very close to me.

On the afternoon that I was told the sad news, I also had my 12 week appraisal with my boss. I got some good advice from her on coping with greif and was thrilled to be told, I had been given brilliant feedback from my clients and I had definately passed with flying colours. I was given my new blue uniform and a cosy winter fleece, An amazing moment was tainted with such sadness as I wanted to tell my lady my good news and of course show her my uniform. I do, though,talk to her and have done so,every day and I am sure if one more person in the street catches me talking to myself, I will surely be carted off! lol.

So, life for me at the moment is all swings and roundabouts. One blink and everything can change. I raise my coffee to my lovely lady and know in my heart she is doing just fine. Take Care, Back Soon. xx

I Made It! Lol

Hello all my lovely fellow J-Landers. I am here at last! lol. With 40 mins to go before time up, I managed to stay online long enough to transfer here. Mind now, I have no Idea what on earth I am doing or where to start but I am sure with a little perseverance, I will get there.

How are you all doing? I felt so lost without you all and was really panicking last night when the screen kept freezing and I kept getting put through to technical support to be told the same thing over and over! lol. Grrr. I knew It wasn't a technical problem and after many hours and countless telephone calls I finally had my cross voice and voiced my frustrations.

Result? 20 mins later I was back online. A clerical error had cost me all that stress. Uninstalled and re-installed aol 4 times! Put a new filter on, which had me lying flat on the floor rather stuck! lol! Oh well. At least I can laugh about It now. It's good to moan. I am so pleased to be here, wherever It Is that I am! lol. I will go for a wee wander and work out what on earth I am meant to be doing and hopefully get round to hearing from you all asap.

Take Care Back Soon. xx

Cutting It Fine! Lol.

Hello everyone,

I am so sorry for being away for so long. I have had some carry on, but I've made It back in time for one last entry in my journal. I have missed  you all so much. Please email me all the places that your new journals will be at. Can't believe we are losing this. It was my fav place to go. We should all find a mutual meeting place and catch up with one another.

I have thought about you all since being away and my fav other man Morton has kept me up to date. Mort you are a star, Thank You. xx.  I have settled in to my new job as a Home Care Attendant now and I love It. I have quite a few characters to go to as you can well Imagine!! lol. I have been helping out in the local nursing home aswell, which has been brilliant. I did that job 20 years ago, Gosh where does the time go eh? lol.

On the downside of being away I almost lost my mum and I was terrified. I am so pleased to say she Is absolutely fine now and I am keeping a close eye on her. My dad Is fine too. I spent the weekend there with my wee treasure singing along to the Singstar game. I reckon I am not too bad but my wee lambchop puts me to shame!! lol. I get a score of 7 or 8 thousand but madam gets 9 thousand! Hmmmm she ges It from me you know! lol.

G, Oscar and purdie are all fine. G decided to take a mad turn at 6.35am and launch himself on lamchops bed! I had a good laugh In the kitchen making my cuppa listening to the squeals!! lol Oh I'm bad!  I just ate soft fudge sweets that were erm... yukky!  Need to remember to stock up on the choc! lol. Weight wise things have been rather successful. I was a size 22 in clothes and now I am pleased to say I am buying new jeans in the next couple of weeks........Drum Roll ... size 14.  Yay! Walking folks, thats the secret, walking. I could have cried In the beginning In fact I did cry, and pant n puff, and curse! lol but I persisted. ;-)

Right I think It's time for me to sign off now as I've been waffling for a while. Great to be back folks. I won't say goodbye, just farewell till our paths cross again soon.Take Care, Love Pam xx

Taking A Break

Hello everyone, I am taking a wee break from my Journal for a week or 2. I have a lot of stuff to sort out and desperately need to get something sorted out work wise. I will be popping online as I need to check out the new vacancies posted, and enter sentence of the week! lol, so If anybody needs me, or wants me to see something then, Please just send me an email.

I will feel strange turning off my alerts but I really need to spend this time focussing on a better future, which means I will be really knuckling down looking for work and getting fit. I have discovered a channel on sky 288. It is simply wonderful. It's all about Balance and helping to get a better body and lifestyle. I especially like Kundilini Yoga with Maya Fiennes, which I have tried and must say, I absolutely love to bits. It Is so relaxing and theraputic and has done wonders for my back and my mind.

I am still walking an awful lot, so between the two, I am feeling really good at the moment. I reccommend It to anyone. I also have my garden to tackle over the next couple of weeks, I should lose at least a stone doing that!! lol. I left the house the other night to go to the shop and as I stepped down the outside steps this enormous dark maroon coloured frog/toad thingy leapt up In front of me! lol. I almost fell back through the door. Once I had shouted my wee treasure down to witness the beastie, It leapt Into the garden/Jungle! lol.

I will have to do a sweeping brush search before I get the strimmer out! It may take some time!! lol. I can still hear my adoreable daughter laughing at the state of me. I also want to spend some time with my little  monster! lol. I need to prise her away from the T.V. ER,  One Tree Hill and Big Brother are a permanent fixture In this house! lol. So all my lovely darlings, I will Love you and leave you now with some Kundilini as a wee taster. Take Care of you all and I will see you all real soon. xx

G & The Mouse

 Psst Mort.. you can see a bit of flesh!! lol. ;-)

Hello Everyone, I went to my Aquafit class and almost had a pink fit! lol. The teacher was off again but my friend calmly reminded me that we could just swim lengths! Doh! I just never thought of that, and was ready to leave! lol. Well, we spent the hour pushing ourselves and It felt good. I was shattered when I came out the pool and walked the good distance home, In the pouring rain! lol. I wouldn't have minded so much but I had just spent time and money drying my hair!!! lol. Grrr.

I found myself In brand new territory this morning, very, very early. I came face to face with G (my cat) for those of you who don't know me. I beckoned him to come In and luckily noticed that he had a mouse In his mouth so rather than shrieking at him, at that unearthly hour, I opened my bottle of water and threw It over him. Hmmm. Well, I tried, He ran, the water missed him and soaked mister man's bike and so It began, The game of cat and mouse at 4am!

I walked towards him and wanted to check In case the mouse was still alive but my bad boy had other Idea's! Each time I closed In, he picked It up and ran further along the path, dropping It In front of him to lie looking at me. I was In full view of all the neighbourhood houses as I loudly whispered for him to put that down and get In the house! lol. He scrunched up his face looked at his mouse, looked at me and growled really loudly!!! Oh! The cheek of It! I have never seen this dark orange side to him!!! lol.

So, of course, I did the only thing I could do, under the circumstances and I growled back!! lol. I only hope all my neighbours were sound asleep. I told him he was a bad boy. After 3 or 4 steps I looked round and he was creeping behind me only to drop It down when I turned his way and begin to chew! Yuk! Now, I know that cats eat mice etc, It is the equivalent to a tasty steak to them, but I prefer mine to eat their crunchy biccy's, with treat's like ham and tuna! lol. He has the cheek to come In each morning acting like he is starving!!

He Is fast asleep on my bed next to Oscar now. It's no wonder he Is growing on a daily basis!! I  had words with him earlier and we have an understanding now!!! lol. I will leave you now with a recent pic of my naughty boy!  You'd think that butter wouldn't melt! lol. ;-) Take care, Back Soon. xx

Happy Father's Day Dad

Hello everyone. I am Indeed late posting this entry for Father's Day but Sunday just didn't have enough hours In the day!! lol. I only had 4 hours sleep on Saturday night so by Sunday morning I was a tad wobbly and rather hallucinogenic! lol. I woke to my wee treasure In a whisper asking, If It would be okay to give her dad his gifts and the card now? and I said yes. I got up and wished my mister man a happy day and called my own dad to wish him well before I went shopping.

My mum answered the phone and said my dad was In the car waiting for her to go to shopping to the same place as me! lol. We laughed and she said they would be right there to pick us up and we could all go together. Now when It comes to shopping my dad has to be the most patient man on this earth!. He usually stays In the car and just waits and waits! lol. I think with him being a keen fisherman all throughout his life, this has helped Immensley! lol. We got It all done and took a bit longer than we meant but, my dad just laughed.

I got all the shopping put In the boot and we all went across to their house. It is such a lovely place where they stay and you can really relax. I got all comfy and looked at wedding pictures of my parents while my wee treasure was totally taken aback asking If It was really them? lol. The day turned out to be far more special than ever anticipated and my dad was really happy.

When It comes to music, my dad loves all kinds and one of his all time favourites Is Johnny Cash. I have memories from years back hearing him sing and joining In with songs like, Ring Of Fire and Sunday Morning Coming Down, In the back of the car going away our holiday's and the last time I was over visiting we watched a show and film about him. It was really Interesting.

I will leave you now with my all time favourite....Sunday Morning Coming Down. It Is a song that no matter where It Is played, It will always remind me of my dad. I hope you enjoy It. Take Care, Back Soon. Love Pam xx

Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt.
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
Then I washed my face and combed my hair
And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.

I'd smoked my mind the night before
With cigarettes and songs I'd been picking.
But I lit my first and watched a small kid
Playing with a can that he was kicking.
Then I walked across the street
And caught the Sunday smell of someone frying chicken.
And Lord, it took me back to something that I'd lost
Somewhere, somehow along the way.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

In the park I saw a daddy
With a laughing little girl that he was swinging.
And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singing.
Then I headed down the street,
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing,
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

A Wee Worry Update.

Psst. Mort. That's 2 normal pics In a row! Shocking I know! lol.

Hello Everyone, I went to see the doctor this morning and came out feeling a lot more positive which is good! lol. My doctor Is such a nice man, He has all the time In the world for his patients and really cares. I am very lucky to have him. Anyway, He is referring me to see a Bowel specialist and hopefully we can get to the bottom (lol. mort..don't spill your tea at that pun!) of what's causing this flaming lump In my side. I got other results when I was there, that It wasn't this disease or that disease, which Is good! lol.
I am not looking forward to getting tubes down my throat or anywhere else for that matter!!! lol. Ohhh I am cringing, but I guess I will just have to be brave.

It Is a nuisance though and the sooner It gets sorted, the better!. I am waiting on a letter to come through for physiotherapy for my lower back aswell now which Is fab!. I have to go back next week and get blood tests done to check my thyroid level, I think It may still be a tad high as I am on the move constantly, (In my quest for the Supermodel figure! Ha!) and I am still carrying extra lard and still far too tired! Well. the old saying eh?..Rome wasn't built In a day! Hmmm. I am being very, very patient! lol. 

Being worried around mister man Is always a recipe for disaster... His theory...'Och, stop whinging', 'It will be a bit of my Toad-In-The-Hole that's got stuck!' lol. I do end up In stitches at the way he cheers me up. I think we are all mad In this house! All three of us and the 3 cats! I will freak about It all nearer the time and no doubt have A wee worry part 83! by the time I am finished If I haven't disintegrated by then. lol.

I was disappointed to learn that the swimming was cancelled last night as Brutal Bertha needed the night off! Hmm. Can she not see my lard? lol. Typical eh?, They all let me down last week so I braved It and went myself, this week the flippin teacher absconds! I give up! lol. Anyway I will love you and leave you now With the brilliant Amy Macdonald. Hope you are all well. Take Care, Back Soon. xx

 Mr. Rock And Roll 

So called Mr Rock And Roll
Is dancing on his own again
Talking on his phone again
To someone who tells him that his balance is low
He's got no where to go
He's on his own again

Rock chick of the century
Is acting like she used to be
Dancing like there's no one there
Before she ever seemed to care
Now she wouldn't dare
It's so rock and roll to be alone

And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say "I wish I was something more"
And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say " I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"

Mrs Black and White
She's never seen a shade of grey
Always something on her mind
Every single day
But now she's lost her way
And where does she go from here

Mr Multicultural
Sees all that one can see
He's living proof of someone
Very different to me
But now he wants to be free
Free so he can see

And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say "I wish I was something more"
And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say "I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"

He'll say "I wish I knew you, I wish I met you
When time was still on my side"
She'll say " I wish I knew you, I wish I loved you
Before I was his bride"

And so they must depart
Too many more are broken hearts
But I've seen that all before
In TV, books and film and more
And there's a happy ending
Every single day

And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say "I wish I was something more"
And they'll meet one day
Far away
And say "I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before"

Hello Everyone. I meant to give you all a wee update about my Aqua Aerobics last week or should I say Battered Body with Brutal Bertha Class! lol. It was just my friend and I that went, and I must admit the Teacher wasn't as brutal as normal. Phew! lol. I had my list all sorted for this week and the numbers were up to 6 which Is a fair few people to be nominating their carcuses for a good old fashioned beating! lol.

I got myself all psyched up for the class and sent the texts to arrange the meeting time for everyone and one by one they all cancelled!. The first one being my wee treasure ,who had sore feet, Then one had to work, One had someone visiting, One had an upset stomach and One was drunk! lol. Hmmm. Well! that left me on my little lonesome. Could I do It? Could I really walk all the way there by myself, climb Into a pool with a load of strangers and do a whole hour's class with Brutal Bertha roaring 'Faster'!.

The answer Is Yes. I did It. I am so pleased that I did. I was nervous and jittery and spent the whole time extremely self conscious, but hey, I did It and I feel good. My confidence has had a wee boost. So the next time you are In that kind of situation, tell yourself this, If Pam can do It, so can I. ;-) I will leave you now with this funny wee video. Hope you enjoy It. Take Care, Back Soon. xx 

P.S. Thanks Mort for the award. You're a star. ;-) xx

Caring Friend Award


Hello everyone, I wanted to do something to spread a little happiness In J-Land, as there are so many people having a rough time and In need of a boost. After a lot of thought, I remembered how good I felt when I received the 'Nice Matters Award' a few months back and wanted to try something along those lines and that's when I decided to come up with a 'Caring Friend Award.'

Now I must stress at this point that I am not an arty type of person at all. I have merely given It my best shot and, I am, however, rather surprised and pleased with the end result!! lol. I hope you will be too.

This award will be given because so many people do so many wonderful things for each other here In J-Land, There are those that, Always give support In the blink of an eye, Take the time to leave comments, Send personal emails, Offer prayer In troublesome times or Spend all their time taking care of others.

There are 5 awards to choose from. You can decide yourself which one you would like for your sidebar when you are chosen and also how many you would like to pass on to others. I want to give these to so many people and will start the ball rolling with 5 friends I believe could use a little boost.







Please stop by all the above journals and wish them well. Take Care, Back Soon. xx

Candyman lyrics

Tarzan and Jane were wingin' on a vine"
Candyman, Candyman
Sippin' from a bottle of vodka double wine
Sweet sugar candy man [whispered]

I met him out for dinner on a Friday night
He really had me working up an appetite
He had tattoos up and down his arm
There's nothing more dangerous than a boy with charm
He's a one stop shop, makes the panties drop
He's a sweet-talkin', sugar coated candy man
A sweet-talkin', sugar coated candyman

Ooo yeah..

He took me to the Spider Club at Hollywood and Vine
We drank champagne and we danced all night
We shook the paparazzi for a big surprise
the gossip tonight will be tomorrow's headline

He's a one stop shop, make my cherry pop
He's a sweet-talkin', sugar coated candy man
A sweet-talkin', sugar coated candyman

Se bop bop
Hey yeah

He's a one stop shop, makes my cherry pop
He's a sweet-talkin', sugar coated candy man oh
A sweet-talkin', sugar coated candyman

Woo yeah

Well by now I'm getting all bothered and hot
When he kissed my mouth he really hit the spot
He had lips like sugar cane
Good things come to boys who wait

Candy man can...
Candy man Candy man
Tarzan and Jane were swingin' on a vine
Sipping from a bottle of vodka double wine
Candy man, candy man

Sweet sugar candy man [whispered]

Working Out

Thanks Joyce for the great Tag. ;-) xx


Hello Everyone, It has been an okay week. I have kept on the move In my quest for the perfect body! lol. I have been walking constantly up and down my street which Is quite a good distance.

I went to Aqua Aerobics with my Wee treasure on Wednesday night. Well! What can I say apart from...Ouch! lol. The woman who was giving us all the moves, to do was, In fact, some sort of sadist!. The way she was jumping around In front of us was made to appear far too easy, whilst In fact everyone In the pool was huffing and puffing, sighing, grumbling and laughing nervously! lol.

Anyway I waited anxiously on the couple of mins break throughout the hour long session. It later transpired that this woman had no Intention of letting you compose yourself for a second, let alone take a break! lol. Arghhh. I did It though and so did my wee treasure, who In fact did brilliantly. I was extremely proud of her, as she seemed to be having a great time aswell!!!. We both slept like logs! and will be going back for more punishment next week! lol.

When I moved my livingroom around last week, I dragged my piano out from the corner and put It up against the facing wall as you walk In, so now I have no excuse not to get playing It! lol. I can't read music and can only play by ear, but I love my piano and hope to learn at some point. My cats have had a go aswell, when their furry paws hit the keys, their reaction was priceless. I was having a wee look at different piano video's when I came across this one and had a real laugh. I will leave you now with Nora who Is a very talented little lady. Take Care Back Soon. xx

On A Mission.

Thanks D for the great tag.

P.S. Mort....There Is an entry under this pic! lol. ;-)

Hello Everyone, I am still job searching. Hopefully something will come through for me soon. I had to laugh last week. I honestly pictured someone up above, having a rather long and hearty laugh at my expense! lol. I decided on tackling the garden with having so much time on my hands, so I got ready,
Slapped on all the gardening attire and started hauling out the tools, Rake, Hoe, lawnmower and strimmer. I was raring to go, plugged In the lawnmower and this almighty high pitched screeching noise almost made the birds fall out the tree's! lol.

So, that was that. The lawnmower was no more! Hmmm. I attempted to strim but gave up, as the strimmer Is In fact very small and more like an edger! and not designed to tackle a garden my size. After 5 mins It felt as though I had been clinging on to a numatic drill! lol. Tools away. Inside the house needed doing anyway, I had just been avoiding It like the plague!, so I had a cup of tea to soothe the anger, then after dusting, decided to tackle the hoovering. Moments later... The Hoover blew up! lol. I can laugh now!!!. Okay the lawnmower was bad enough but now the hoover!. Amazingly enough, I stayed calm. These things are sent to try us, better to laugh It off and move on. 

I Borrowed my neighbour's hoover and after asking my friend to borrow a mower or bigger strimmer, was told that her man would come and do my garden free of charge! How kind. I got the house looking good, then tidied up the weeds and raked up all the cut grass. I have been walking loads aswell. I need to stay positive and use my time to try my best to shift this excess lard! lol. To date, I have lost a stone and a half. 21 pounds sounds more! lol.

Ive decided with all this walking, I need a new back and legs! lol, so If any of you happen to see any nice, shapely pins at your local sale or a nice tanned back, In perfect working order, please give me a shout! ;-) Take Care Back Soon. xx

A Little Lost

Thanks D, for this lovely pic. ;-)

Hello Everyone, I have been on a very fast merry-go-round of late and hope to be climbing off very soon. I will try to explain briefly what has been happening In my world. I could no longer stand being made a fool of In my work, so a few weeks back, I gathered my belongings, extremely upset, and left. This Is completely out of character for me as 'loyalty' Is usually my middle name, but I had no choice.

I am still waiting on a phonecall from my boss to ask If, and why, I have left and, If, I am okay. He wasn't there during the hours when I left and I am still shocked at the silence. I thought I meant more to him than that. Sadly you expect this from strangers but not your family. Needless to say, now that so much time has passed, I won't hold my breath!

I ran about like a mad thing trying to find work and filled out numerous application forms. Spent loads of sleepless nights worrying myself sick about money. I got a letter through the post last week to say I had an Interview for a really good job with decent money. I managed to buy a nice chocolate brown velvet suit for £2 from the local charity shop and found accessories here at home to match.

I attended with a nice positive attitude and felt very relaxed. I was Interviewed by 3 people. One lady and 2 men. The lady was a bit off, but the men were fine. I remembered to shake their hands afterwards and thank them for their time. I left, feeling pretty confident.

I received the letter through the post today and passed It to mister man to open It for me. His face told me the answer straight away...Unsuccessful at this time.. blah blah blah. Okay. Plan B. There was no plan B. If I am honest, I am rather flat. Rejection can be quite soul destroying.

I know I could have done that job no problem but I know In my heart that It simply wasn't meant to be and that I need to pick myself up, dust myself down and try again. I will leave you with Mr Michael Buble and his fabulous song called "Lost", Rather apt I thought! lol.

Take Care. Back Soon. xx


I can't believe it's over
I watched the whole thing fall
And I never saw the writing that was on the wall
If I'd only knew
The days were slipping past
That the good things never last
That you were crying

Summer turned to winter
And the snow it turned to rain
And the rain turned into tears upon your face
I hardly recognized the girl you are today
And god I hope it's not too late
It's not too late

'Cause you are not alone
 I'm always there with you
 And we'll get lost together
 Till the light comes pouring through
'Cause when you feel like you're done
 And the darkness has won
 Babe, you're not lost
 When your worlds crashing down
 And you can't bear the thought
  I said, babe, you're not lost

 Life can show no mercy
 It can tear your soul apart
 It can make you feel like you've gone crazy
 But you're not
Things have seemed to change

 There's one thing that's still the same
 In my heart you have remained
 And we can fly fly fly away

'Cause you are not alone
 And I am there with you
 And we'll get lost together
 Until the light comes pouring through
'Cause when you feel like you're done
 And the darkness has won
Babe, you're not lost
When the worlds crashing down
And you can not bear the cross
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost

Thank You.

Hello Everyone,

Wow! I am so pleased that I won the Weekly Sentence Competition again! Thank you so much Val and the other judge's for choosing me, It was just the boost that was needed. I have displayed It proudly In my sidebar.

I am experiencing a few major changes at the moment. Change Is always scary, but I will shake and freak my way through It! lol. I hope that I will be feeling more secure In a few weeks. Nothing for anyone to worry about, I may add.

This Lotto Is getting closer! I have been doing the Euromillions on a Friday and boy! I have been so close!. Not close enough though! I have things to do with that money, I have quite a large list growing for all you J-Lander's ....

Lisa gets tons of nice new cat accessories, Val gets a special pampering session, Jenny gets to meet the group Queen, Joyce gets her pool, Mort gets a holiday and personal nurse, Angel gets a cup of tea from a Scottish visitor lol.

Jane gets whatever she needs, Stevie will get a day In a recording studio. Lori will get a round trip ticket to come and visit me. Joann gets a china tea set and enough fresh flowers to fill a room. Indigo gets a brand new complex for cats, Sherry gets a personal trainer for a month, Monica gets a Digital Camera, Jan gets a Laptop ...

As you can see, the list Is growing! lol. I know there Is more but I just can't think. If anyone has a special request for sharing my future lotto win then just let me know! lol. Okay I must go and think about getting some sleep now.

I bought a wee smokey quartz stone, to attract positivity and bring good thing's Into my my wee world, and have It tucked away safely, In my bra!!. Well, The closer to me It gets, the better, so they say! Can't get much closer than that!! lol. ;-)

Lovin' you all and leavin' you all, until the next time. with a fabulous wee Scottish girl called Amy Macdonald who Is simply wonderful.
Take care. Back Soon. xx    

  "Run"  by  Amy Macdonald

Will you tell me when the lights are fading
Cos I can't see, I can't see no more
Will you tell me when the song stops playing
Cos I can't hear, I can't hear no more

She said I don't know what you're living for
She said I don't know what you're living for at all
He said I don't know what you're living for
He said I don't know what you're living for at all

But I will run until my feet no longer run no more
And I will kiss until my lips no longer feel no more
And I will love until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there's nothing more to live for

Will you tell me when the fighting's over
Cos I can't take, I can't take no more
Will you tell me when the day is done
Cos I can't run, I can't run no more

She said I don't know what you did it for
She said I don't know what you did it for at all
He said I don't know what you did it for
He said I don't know what you did it for at all

But I will run until my feet no longer run no more
And I will kiss until my lips no longer feel no more
And I will love until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there's nothing more to live for

And I will love until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there's nothing more to live for

Happy Birthday Mum

Hello Everyone. Today Is my mum's Birthday and I sat for rather a long time wondering what to get her.
I thought It would be a nice Idea to look for a poem and pop It In a nice frame to go along with some flowers and chocolates, but after looking for 5 mins, I decided to write one myself. I waited on my Wee Treasure to come home from school then we caught the teatime bus.

Mister Man arrived on his bike and my mum was really pleased to see us all and loved her gifts. Along with other family members, we all sang Happy Birthday and watched my mum blow out her candles. It Is hard to believe that she Is 76 today. If I look like her at that age, I will be doing cartwheels! lol. I have posted the poem I wrote and added one of her favourite songs along with It's lyrics at the end.

Take Care Back Soon. xx

Happy Birthday Mum

Impeccable manners an example to follow,
No smoking or drinking or tablets to swallow
Your voice very soft yet, your will very strong.
The list of your good points just goes on and on.

A lady who cares more than one person should.
Through good times and bad times, she will make you feel good.
Always a phonecall to check we're okay,
Its lovely to know she's not too far away.

The kitchen Is where you will find my mum.
When the front door Is closed, the cooking's begun.
Homemade Jam and some Fairy Cakes,
Sausage and Tomato Pie, she so easily makes.

An animal lover like you wouldn't believe.
For her favourite "The Gorilla",
she wears her heart on her sleeve. 
Growing up with cats, dogs, chickens and goats,
Her favourite holiday, on the Cruise Liner Boats.
Remembering back to those very young years,
She would always be first to stop any tears.
Rocked back and forth with a gentle pat on the back,
Nothing else mattered, security intact.

Thank you mum for always being there.
For taking the time, to show that you care.
I've learn't very much, from all that you've done.
I love you so much.. My Friend... My Mum. xx



Deanne Durbin - 1941

I can see the lights of home
Shining brightly o'er the foam;
Beckon to me while I roam
Away from lights of home.

I can see somebody there
loving eyes and silver hair
I can see her kneeling prayer
beneath the lights of home

In that little old sleepy town
Nothing happens when the sun goes down
not a thing but moonbeams run around
in a starry dome

Turn the hands of time for me
let me live my memory
once again I long to be
beneath the lights of home

In that little old sleepy town
nothing happens when the sun goes down
not a thing but moonbeams run around
in a starry dome

When the hands of time for me
let me live my memory
once again I long to be
beneath the lights of home.

A Little Lost

Hello Everyone, Apologies for not getting round to your journal's. To be honest, I've just not been able to, My get up and go has got up and gone. I am mentally exhausted. Totally stressed out. Saw the specialist at the hospital, no further forward really, need to see another one apparently. Just need to forget about it for the time being, take each day as It comes. 

 It would seem that quite a lot of people here In J-Land are having a really hard time too. Lisa, Jan, Lori, but to name a few, well, a wee note to say, I am thinking of you all. I will get round to see everyone just as soon as I can.

I have had a nice but rather long night tonight, helping out Stevie with his J-Land song. I eventually figured out what I was doing! lol and It really cheered me up, so Thanks stevie. I'm sure it will be brilliant when It's done. Right my lovely cherubs, I'm off to bed now. Nite nite, Sleep well everyone. Take Care, Back Soon. xx

My Eco-Warrior Daughter

Hello Everyone.

I have had a very relaxing weekend. Woke up this morning to see heavy snow falling! It has almost all gone now. The sun Is streaming through the window and is most welcome. I stopped by a journal belonging to Michael  and left a comment about my "wee treasure" writing a poem for a school project, in the form of a journalist writing in a paper, to encourage people to act upon Global Warming.  I was pleased that she was more than happy to share this with everyone. Her words: "We need to take action now and help out as much as we can."

I have to admit that she drives me daft switching off lights and nagging at both me and her dad to change our ways. I sometimes get plunged Into darkness then hear the voice saying "You don't need the light and the lamp on at the same time"! lol. I put my hand up, I was one of the many people who turned a blind eye and thought that one person can't change what's happened, but I know better now. We Can make a difference and, thanks to my clever girl for being so determined and strong willed, I do sit up and take notice. We started recycling a while back and when I'm shopping, I look out for recycled items.  It makes me feel pleased to be a small part In helping to halt the damage. I am so proud and privilledged to now leave you with this lovely poem.

Take Care, Back Soon. xx    

It's not fake, It's real
what's happening around us,
so deep that we can't feel.
but that's not It,
It gets worse.
Not only will earth die,
but who lives on earth?
You and I.

But what If we done something,
like save ourselves?
but that's the point,
No-one can be bothered.
so I say let's make them be bothered,
and make them understand.
then earth can finally be,
best friends with man.
