I Am Love

I am  the love which tears you apart

It rips your heart open so wide  you think you will drown in your own blood

Do you want me to stop???

I am the love which will hurt you so much you are going to lose it all

You are not able to think, your life is an only struggle, an only pain

Do you want me to stop???

I am the love which is  poisoning you so bad, you can’t take it anymore

This love will eat you up, it doesn’t spare anything

Do you want me to stop???

I am the love which will suffocate you

You can’t breathe, you are paralyzed

Do you want me to stop???

I am the love which turns your world upside down

Your mind is playing games, games you do not understand

Do you want me to stop???

When you fought your last fight, when the battle has ended

You will be open, you will embrace me

As I am the love who will never ever stop!!!

Unswerving Confidence (is the secret)

I must admit, I love people who are like me! I love to be surrounded by like-minded people, people who are so confident that you shake your head in disbelieve! People who are able to look under the surface.

Nowadays it is often about looks. The first few seconds are often the critical moments in life. Automatically there are thoughts in our heads and sometimes we don’t even realize that we are already judging someone we don’t even know. 

That’s why it is so important to get to know people before we make up our mind!

A few years ago, I was out with a friend. It was an Elvis 70’s birthday party and I was dancing when all of a sudden I was grabbed and swirled around by someone! I couldn’t help but laugh and just dance with the boy!

And why was that I ask you?

Because the boys confidence was shining out of every single pore of his!!! I was instantly attracted to him! What I have seen was the bright red hair, the shining blue eyes, his slim figure and the oh-so-cool rockabilly clothes!

What I didn’t see was that he actually was a short-arse with thin lips, a huge nose (his nickname was “Woodpecker”) and paper pale skin. He was probably thinner than I am, a smoker and way too young for me!

But if you are confident enough, you can get the hottest one in the room!

When I applied for a job by the airport, I send them a CV with a short line, which went a bit like:

“You should hire me, because

And do you know what? Despite the fact that I was a single mother of two back then and it was shift work, I got the job!!!

And why was that I ask you???

Because I’ve told the Boss, that I can do it, that I really wanted this job!!!

Confidence is the key!

Summer season is always the busiest season at airports. A lot of passengers. A lot of passengers also means a lot of conversations and arguments when it comes to excess baggage and or weight! The thing is, we have had to charge passengers as luggage get checked again before it get transported into the planes. So passengers are requested, to purchase or to take items out of the suitcase!

My speech was always the following:

“You have 3kg too much in your suitcase. Would you like to pay or to take it out?”

Most passengers where so taken aback, that they don’t even try to argue or to deal like they are on a turkish bazar!

And why was that I ask you?

Confidence!

If you want something really really bad, you have to be confident!

Be confident and take what you desire, whether it is the cute guy next door, a pay-raise, the way you want to get your hair cut and not the hairdresser… whatever it is:

Be straight forward, be ruthless and shine like a star!

Too hot for this world (or so we should think)

I am a very confident person, my ego is huge and usually I think

“I am too hot…” with a big grin. (these days I think differently but that is because I am still down with a nasty cold)

And do you know what? Everyone should think that way! Tell yourself over and over again, how good looking you are until you really believe it. Once you believe yourself, others will recognize it too!

The reason why I am posting this:

I just stood in the kitchen, preparing my dinner, eyeing my medication, a mild smile on my lips knowing that I will sleep like a baby after I knocked them down, with the radio on. And what did I hear than???

Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars “Uptown Funk”!!! Actually I am not a Bruno Mars fan, but that song says it all and I love the groove.

So here we go:

Have a great weekend!!!

Yes, my fire alarm works!!!

A few minutes ago I went down the street with Cash and Cailleach and stopped in my tracks.

I shushed Cailleach and said “do you hear that? It sounds like an alarm.”

So I went on and wondered where it is coming from and if it is coming from one of the houses what to do. Phone  the fire brigade or knock on the door first?

But when we came closer to our house I realized, it was our fire alarm! So I rushed around the house with the children to open the door and was greeted by smoke coming from the kitchen!

Stupid me has forgotten to turn the oven off! I mean I am famous for (slightly!!!) burning food as I just forget because I do too many things at once but this topped it:

All potato waffle and fish fingers burned. And not only slightly burned so that you could scrape the dark bits off…

Poor babies where very disappointed and asked me with big teary eyes, if they could eat their Halloween sweets. Can’t say “no”, I guess. 

So while I scrubbed the oven, the babies where and still are all happy in front of the tv watching Cbeebies.

But though the windows are all open, here still lingers a quite smokey scent…

Although good to know that the fire brigade doesn’t show up when the alarm goes off and that it stops when you open the windows to let the smoke out!

Not so good to know that the neighbors don’t give a “peep”

Mirror mirror on the wall- who is the fairest spring chicken of all???

Do you ever look in the mirror and wonder who that person is that stares at you?

Normally I look in the mirror and think to myself

“Oh helloooo you hot cute spring chicken, how are you today?”

But these days I barely recognize myself! I am down with a bad cold that just don’t want to move on to another person. And my eyes are so puffy, they look like a snow ramp, ready for the next ski-run!

I always loved my bright grey-blue eyes, one of my best and favourite body parts! But since I have toddlers, sleep is overrated and yesterday I was so fed up, that I ordered a Creme de Lamer eye sample though I only use natural products but this time I want to believe, that something very expansive MUST WORK WONDERS!!! Quick wonders, please!!!

And than my skin! Oh my… I really love the UK, every time I have been here, I felt at home, and I am proud to know that one day (when I am Stonehenge-old) I will die here.  But what I didn’t expect is, that the tap water  contains so much chlorine! It made my skin so spotty, that the only skincare I can use now is pure coconut oil(Did I mention I love to try new products??? Like “real” brand products?!).

I still get little spots and once they move on they leave their rubbish in form of a dark mark which seems to take forever to vanish on my once flawless skin!

I have given birth to 4 children, but does that mean, I have to exercise that hard just to prevent my behind to kiss my knee pits??? I always wanted a smaller bum, back then it was so round (still small though), that you could have put a teacup on it, now it is still small but more flattish-er-kind-of-sort…

My boobs have gone too! After breastfeeding they decided  to just shrink away. Well I am fine with that. My babies might have loved the huge soft cleavage, but I personally found them very unpractical, especially when it came to sport or sleep on the belly. BUT sometimes it would be nice to actually find a bra that fits!!!

So mirror mirror on the wall, today I would like a wonder-pill which kills my cold and with it all symptoms, a chemical face peeling, a tiny bum lifting oh and maybe if that is not too much asked for, I would also like to get my once very thick hair back!

THANK YOU!
