Author: Franky tells it like it is

So this is the "About Me" part: I was born and raised in Germany. So bare with me, if some sentences come out funny as my mother tongue is not english! I am an armee wife and mother of 4 children. Currently we live in North Yorkshire. But believe me, I will not leave this beautiful island ever again!!! I have two years time (we have the year 2015) to figure out what to do with my life! After summer 2017 my youngest one Cash will go to school and that means, I have to find a job. Not because I need to (well maybe partly, because it is always good when you have some extra cash on the bank) but because I am looking for a purpose in life! Don´t get me wrong, I had a lot of jobs from secretary (hmmm... a bit boring), maid (I don´t mind cleaning hotelrooms, but if you have to fight for the rooms with your colleagues it is no fun), piercer (no one can work as a piercer forever), lots of other jobs till check-in agent for airports (very stressful, but best job ever). But nothing I did satisfied me, I always thought there must be more! So maybe, just maybe I am talented enough to build something up here, write for magazines or who knows what to make a living. And if not, if people think I am boring or not talented enough at least I can write about my life and thoughts! But what I do know, what I really want to do is to become a ultra marathoner!!! Currently I am a half marathon level, but I will train until I reach my goal!!! Giving up is not an option! So read my blog, leave comments, get in touch, follow me on my journey!

Sun

Feeling the sun on my

Tongue makes the world a better place

And my blue soul disappears

 

 

 

 

The lines came to my mind while standing at traffic lights this morning, listening to a Marvin Gaye song, the sun shining upon my smiling face…..

 

Undisturbed Sleep

I am certain I said it in a previous post, but I say it again:

I am sleep deprived!!! Which is very exhausting. Every morning, even when I get to go to bed at 8pm, I have to force myself out of bed!

Not because I am a I-love-to-sleep-in sort of type, no, because I get easily disturbed!

Have you watched the movie “Trainwreck”? The scene when Amy Schumer stays over at the doctors?

THAT is so me!

My husband claims he can’t fall asleep when he can’t touch me, so he often puts at least one foot on my leg (where I often wonder, how is it he says he can’t fall asleep without touching  me, when he is wearing socks in bed?!? He can’t really feel anything anyway!).

When he does so, I am wide awake, eyes like saucers, waiting for him to fall asleep and when he finally does, I either move his leg over (but that only works when he is already snoring), or I move to the edge of the bed.

It all started when I was a little baby. I would not fall asleep on the arm or in the same bed as my parents, they had to put me in my own cot! So when they put me down, I fell asleep without whinging and that lasted for at least 10 hours!

My parents where so spoiled (at least as long I was an innocent, helpless baby), they often had to check if I was still alive and wake me up!!!

As long I was in my own bed, nothing could wake me up. I had a very deep sleep. Early to bed and early back up throughout my teens and into adulthood.

At least as long I was single!

When I was in a relationship, my sleep got disturbed by unruly, other, not to me belonging body parts!

Sure when you are still in your “honeymoon-phase”, it feels cosy and you want to touch your new man’s/woman’s body constantly, but when it comes to MY sleep, it is no fun!

So what did I do?! I pretended to be all loved up and comfy, just to wait for the guy to fall asleep so I could roll over to my side (at least if the bed was big enough) to get at least a bit of sleep myself.

I am sorry, but I just can’t do it! Never could, never will!

I don’t want to get breathed at and I don’t want to have way to warm body parts slung over me.

I need my sleep! Sleep is important! I don’t get much as it is!

So dear God, do you hear me? If so, can you send someone down at nighttime who could prevent hubby from sneaking up on me? Hm…. I can’t quite hear you but presume you got my message and granted my wish!

Many thanks!

Franky

 

Blue

The blue above our heads

Makes me want to kiss your lips

Which taste of endless tenderness

Audio books

I just read a post where the lady said, she was listening to an audio book.

The story sound nice and for a split second I was thinking to finally buy one myself!

But hold on…..

No…..

I can’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The reason is very simple:

When I read “real” books, I can barely make it to the middle, I am so excited and nosy, that I have to have to read the last page to find out how it ends!

And no, it doesn’t spoil it at all. Once I know how it ends, I am even more eager to find out how it came to this end!

(I just did it again just yesterday with Elisa S. Amore’s book, “Touched Saga II”)

And so I wondered:

“How am I suppose to go to the “last page”, the final chapter, the end?!

To press the “forward” button? Is there even such a thing? A forward button that is?”

No, Sir!

Like I said it was just a split second……

A second of silliness…..

Me and an audio book…… hahahahahaha that was a good one!

I stick to my nice paper books, preferably hardcovers, but paperbacks will do as well.
