It’s a jungle out there

A complex creature, they sense weakness at 1000 paces, pouncing quickly and efficiently on their enemy. Cold heartedly dismembering their prey before it knows it was even in the danger zone.

They tear into it piece by little piece until there is nothing left but the bruised, sometimes bloodied remains of what was once a living thing.

Relationships hold no value for this most callous of natures creations, they are a lone creature preferring to hunt and attack alone. There is no regard for blood lines as their killer instinct kicks in, it doesn’t matter who the prey is, in fact the closer the relationship to this creature, the better, it makes the fight so much more meaningful for them somehow and the subsequent victory – for they always win. That much sweeter.

It has a finely tuned sensory system meaning it knows exactly how and when to push the buttons of its prey to draw it out into the open, where it is exposed, vulnerable and helpless.

Three strikes . . .

Husb and I like to think that we are rather hip happening types of people.
We like to take time out to chillax, roll with punches, hang, and I think that if we were put into a room with the teenagers and yoof of today that we could more than hold our own, know what I mean bruv?
Fo shizzle. Etc

In my head I am still a young exuberant, thin (without doing anything at all to be so) 18 year old and I like to think I haven’t changed that much since my not really ever that hedonistic younger days.

Unfortunately, however, this is all wishful thinking rather than based in actual reality.

Facebook fatigue.

A close Facebook friend of mine recently told me that they were thinking of coming off Facebook as they were fed up of it. At the time we were chatting I didn’t think too much about it apart from being sad that I wouldn’t be able to keep in touch in the same way that we had before.

This was until a couple of days ago when I was scanning through my Facebook feed first thing in the morning so I can catch up on any overnight goings on from my friends in the Northern Hemisphere when I was confronted by the sickest thing I have ever seen.

Considering career options.

I feel that I am at a bit of a turning point in my work life at the moment. I have been thinking about what is next for my career for a little while now. Since I gave the Bear life I haven’t gone back to my old job and since moving to Australia, to be honest I have been having too good a time to think about work. Well, no, thats wrong actually; I have thought about work quite a bit and on each occasion dismissed the idea pretty quickly.
I am however, still considering my options and over recent days I have been toying (excuse the pun) with the idea of a career in child care as an option. I mean I am a mum myself, like how hard can it be really?

Now as you may know from my previous post, my sister, mum and little nephew are visiting at the moment. I have been looking forward to it for so long. I could hardly wait to hold my little nephew in my arms and give him a big hug and squeeze from his Auntie. I had also been really looking forward to helping out as much as I can to give my sister a little break.

I got my opportunity to help pretty soon into their time here.

2012 – A game of two halves

2012 has been a bit of a biggy for our little family really what with the moving to the other side of the world and all – I wouldn’t have thought it gets much bigger than that really.
I thought it would be good to look back and remember all the trials, tribulations, pleasures and upsets that this year has brought us and what better way to do that then to link up with Grace for my review of my year of big changes. (see what I did there, a seamless link if ever there was one!)

I think it safe to say that this year has been a game of two halves, one half in the Northern Hemisphere and one in the Southern Hemisphere. Read more…
