Just another day in paradise


I awoke today feeling pretty crappy. I had been having nightmares about having nightmares. I am particularly talented that way. My mood was pretty dark, as are the skies here. It is raining. So I made myself some tea and fruit loaf toast and turned on the computer.


Waiting for me I found a  message from a friend, one of my oldest friends actually. I also found alot to amuse me on twitter including a reply to something I’d said and a fab quote from the magnificent Katharine Hepburn

“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only what you are expecting to give — which is everything. What you will receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving. ”


Unlike Forrest Gump I’m not sure I know what love is. I know what it is to me, I just get confused about what it means to others. To me, it is as Ms. Hepburn says. What I am learning is to be loving towards myself as well.


Today though I am feeling the love from my wider world via the World Wide Web. I am really glad you are out there! Now that my mood is a little calmer I can reflect on my blessings of which there are many. My thoughts are with some friends who are having an embryo transfer today. Also with the lovely Katyboo who has some tough things going on. My beautiful children, my wonderful friends, my family of choice, music, chocolate, Monty Python- and I think to myself what a wonderful world!
