Morning my little trickles of maple! How ya doing? I drank a giant coffee before bed last night meaning that i laid awake during the night star shift. Someone told me that in order to get a good nights sleep you’re meant to drink a coffee before you take a giant nap. Erm…I must obviously be losing my touch when it comes to the art of trust (lol) because I stayed awake like a hypnotized chimp with a banana being dangled in front of him. I thought a lot last night because that’s what you tend to do at night when laid awake. I always used to think that the art of thought during quiet, alone moments were dangerous. They’re not. They’re essential after going through a roller coaster. People tend to block out these moments of ‘having to reflect’ via the art if naughty recreational vices, be it sex, drugs, drinking, or the basic art of rock and roll. In order to mend, you sort of have to reflect and well I sort of glued my head back together and saw everything in a more positive light. Things can get better. In fact they already are. Then Rubes ran into my bed because she was terrified of some witch that was apparently in her window. *Rolls eyes.* So, we spent the night a cuddling and doing it with a snooze.
Weirdly I managed to do this morning with a smile, a decent amount of lip gloss and with a swagger of ‘great ease.’ Lord knows how, as there’s nothing worse than waking up, when the skies are still dark and the air is still chilly. It all seems backwards and as if you’re on a slow moving treadmill and getting nowhere fast. At the end of the day I’m a glamour puss, I need light, warmth and diamonds. Meaning, I have zero idea how I managed to make this morning happen! AND IN A PERFECT UP-DO! I mean, I even got the children off to nursery EARLY!
Everything seems to be running smoothly today? Yes, i’m in shock. I have a lot of work to do, however i’ve decided that every morning I dedicate an hour to my darling kitty self and that way I can work more effectively and let me tell you, this taking over the world malarkey is time consuming. 🙂 I had a great girly gossip with the girls at my local Co-OP. They seem to know all about me. Probably because I blog it all out and well they saw me on the Ann Summers show. And the great thing about me, is that I never really hid anything. You can come up to me and ask em about life, my life, your life and I will HONESTLY and in the rawest of manners tell you all that I feel you need to hear, without an ‘edit’ button.
So when I say ‘girly gossip’ it was fine…(because I don’t like girls who gossip) and it was fine because the gossip was about me! 🙂 They’re super supportive of Wunna land at the Co-op, so when I saw one of the girls saunter up to me with her eyes edging on and off my ring finger. I immediately just opened up and started fun, happy, chitter chatter. I mean, she was so comfortable around me that she even began the chitter-chatter and with ‘how’s things with ya husband?’ Lol.
Before you know it, there was a bundle of happy faces around me, all giggling as I story told and made fun of myself. But i think i’m a natural entertainer, even in the most normal of environments. I want to make people giggle. It’s sort of what I do. Even if the giggles are evil and behind my back. 🙂 I ain’t bothered. Hollywood taught me well.
Then I almost drove into a wheely bin as I pulled back home into my drive. Yes, I’m that glamourous. I don’t know how I don’t see things like wheely bins? It must be my eyelashes? But like my life in general, at the last minute I managed to pull a swerve and get out the way of danger. That’s me. Usually charm and boobs get me out of things. Today….it was my reflexes. I didn’t even know mine worked!
Okay, so today, after my thinking…when it comes to my love life. I want to make everything better again and do everything right. I’m positive right nbow and i think that that’s the only way to be. In my work life I want to take a gamble and go forward with my Braveheart army and succeed. You can only get further in life if you take a risk. I’m ready for that now. Plus, my diets going well meaning I feel brave.
When it comes to the beauty line/products there’s not much I can currently do because I’m waiting for my samples. So, in the meantime I now have to tackle the legalities of it all and make sure i’m up to all EU standards and abiding my all EU regulations. These are the big bits i know nothing about. But if others can do it so can I. My line is going to be a success and because I have all the right people around me, helping me. But I do need a business brain to come board and fast.
At the same time as that i’m having to organize the other opportunities that have been given to me. (I’m behind on them.) Plus, I have to make sure everything is running smoothly for the big giveaway bonanza. A few more people and brands have added themselves to the list and i’m very grateful for that. In fact little Junior is doing well because he now gets offered a great deal of freebies from a great deal of baby brands and well we’re going to be trying them out and reviewing them all for you.
I’m looking forward to next year because there’s so much going on. However, I am a GREAT ‘rest of this year,’ as not only am I covering The Clothes Show, but I’m getting to celebrate the Crimbo season at my favourite place ever…the forest log cabin. Everyone knows how much I love it there. There’s nothing more relaxing to me than being around nature and luxury all at the same time. 🙂 Especially at Christmas! (I’ve already been THREE TIMES this year!)
So, right now i’ll love you and leave you as I’ve a truck load of glitzy work to conquer.
Here’s a picture of my Mum when she was 25!
She’s 63 now and therefore no longer looks as well manicured, but it’s always good to look back and find those cheeky ‘when I was young’ pics. We’ve all been a bit worried because she went in to get her heart checked yesterday. Life really does fly by, so it’s important that you make the most of all the love you have around you. My Mum is a beautiful soul and was such a cute 25 year old!! This was taken the day she got her degree and became a Doctor. She told me how proud my Grandad was and I guess in life we all strive to please our parents and make them proud of us. Even though she tells me how proud she is of me everyday, I still feel like i haven’t done that one thing that will knock her off her feet with a ‘oh my gosh, that’s my baby!’ 🙂
Anyway, got to go because i keep rambling on…
Love you long time…
