“There’s nothing more contagious than the laughter of young children; it doesn’t even have to matter what they’re laughing about.”

The above picture kind of sums me up and the ‘feeling’ predominantly filtering through most of this blog.  No I am not a troll, but doesn’t he have the look of being a ‘right little ole cheeky monkey?’

This blog contains unedited musings by firstly, a woman, yes that’s right, then a mother, then a wife.  I make no apology for the unedited content, anything that might be politically incorrect, this of course is variable depending on what country or background you come from, or anything else that might not amuse or generally entertain, I am smiling intently whilst writing this though I sound serious.

I started this blog with it just being for ‘me’ with no particular direction, but over time be it short so far, I see a vague theme or subject matters developing.

Writing from my heart, unfiltered is what matters to me, it is a way to express my personality, the fun carefree side for most of the time, for I have other blogs to express other sides (no I am not multiple personality, I don’t think?!)

  • I love to tell stories (not tittle tattle)
  • I love to shock sometimes, yes I admit it
  • I love to write about my children & home life
  • I like to share things I might have discovered even yes educational things if I think they might be of use to someone else.
  • I love to write about my pets 
  • I love to write about my childhood memories
  • I love photography and or nature, no I am not a David Attenborough, but I have a visual appreciation, having spent some time immobile really can open one’s eyes to the small pleasures in life.
  • I love to cook & bake
  • I like trying my hand at new things, ie writing poetry (screams in fright)
  • I love finding other peoples wonderful content and re-blogging once I have asked nicely
  • I like to enter challenges set for various things, photography, subject writings etc. 
  • Sometimes I write about my past vocation of being a holistic therapist
  • Sometimes I might review something
  • Sometimes I just banter about daily life, or indeed have a gripe.
  • Mainly I like smiling!

~ All of these things you can find under my categories and my other blogs are openly listed in the top bar.

I love to chat, I am not ‘glued’ to the computer but not far away, or at least my phone isn’t, so often it gives me pleasure to strike up a banter in the comments section.

Thank you for reading,  Justine x

    I’ve wanted to ask you since I first saw your blog – where did the picture at the top come from? Did you draw it?

      ah that was an artist, not me i am afraid lol, i wish i was that talented, i saw you had a drawing of yourself, who did that? x


      • February 18, 2015 at 1:34 PM

        I didn’t see any other drawings on your blog so I thought it might have been someone else. Anyway, the artist did a great job – I love that drawing. You have another portrait on another one of your blogs. I like that as well, but there’s something about this casual, almost cartoon, that I like better.

        Unless otherwise stated, all of the drawings, photos, etc. on my site are by me. I used to take drawing and painting classes but am a bit rusty now!

            Thanks. Your artist is talented – I like her work, at least what I’ve seen on your blogs.

    Oh my! you have a lot of comments on this page! I’m out of breath from running down it!
    You commented on my prose poetry post. I read it, and then it disappeared! I’m here just to let you know that if I deleted it, it was purely by accident, as I was just about to reply. I wasn’t being rude or insulting.
    I like your ‘About’ page!

      Thank you and don’t worry I do that kind of thing alllll the time lol. I need to look at my about page I wrote it sooo long ago hehe! Really aporeciate you taking a look. What’s been your fav assignment so far?


      • February 24, 2015 at 9:35 PM

        I have revelled in most of them. I loved writng the limericks because I could switch off from reality and be silly. I think nonsense is an art form, and if not, who cares? It makes me laugh. I really enjoyed the ballad, because what I wrote was total fiction, so it wasn’t painful. Having said that,the pain is part of my mission. I’m trying to compile enough addiction stories to make into a small book, which I would like to offer to a drugs service.
        What have you enjoyed the most? And the least?
