Little By Little

One day at a time. It is my mantra when I begin to feel overwhelmed by all of my "shoulds" and "supposed tos". 

As much as I might feel it, I am not a failure as a mother because the laundry is on the floor instead of folded and put away or because the dishes from a few days ago still aren't done. Do you know I feel like someone is going to read that and gasp! My chest is actually feeling tight at the idea.
Oh how silly!

I have come so very far in the past two and a half years. It is difficult to remember where I've been when the where I am is a bit hard too.

My silence isn't for a lack of wanting to share, but life changed with the  birth of a wild haired, deep eyed beauty. She is determined and dramatic. She is a Mummy's girl with a quick wit. She drives me to near breaking point and then melts my heart.

My yellow brick road has taken me many places so far in my life. Lately it's taken me back into the workforce and back into the dating world (yuck!).

In a few weeks it's taking me to Disneyland Paris! More on that to come (I hope).....
Miss Mouse and I are both terribly excited! I so want to sneak away for a bit to visit Paris itself, it is a dream of mine. I've collected Eiffel figures for years now.
I plan on adding a few more to my collection.

I also wanted to share about my new Mum crush Clair may have to wait. It's a preschool & work day and time is getting short before both.
I do hope to stop long enough to let blab even if I'm the only one reading. Soon!

A New Direction

Ta daaaaa! Do you like my new theme? It's seems a natural shift as the centre of my world is my hilarious dragon adoring firecracker of a girl. At this stage of life she is the hub and everything else is a spoke. As I believe it should be.

Although I'm leading into my most busy crafting time of year far more hours and effort go into keeping up with Miss Mouse

So I'm hoping to be able to write more as it should flow much more naturally now!

Miss Mouse & I won't be able to get home to the States for Christmas this year. It's been a pretty big blow, yet I'm determined to make a big fuss and have a very magical holiday in our own little flat. I've started shopping and hope to have a home full of glitter and as much kitsch as one small home can hold! I'm hoping to stack brightly wrapped boxes under our groaning with glam tree.
I'm getting excited...

It's finally starting to cool down over here. Autumn is arriving with all of the rain and gloomy skies. It makes me feel very cosy. We're going to get bundled up and explore. We'll see you real soon!

For anyone who doesn't know me personally, you won't know that Matilda is a MAJOR How to Train Your Dragon fan. Like super serious. Her passion has become dear to my heart too. We watched the latest film in the cinema. Matilda's first film in the cinema. Perfect. I've become besotted with Valka. The queen. Here is a love song sung to her by her husband, from who she'd been lost from for 20 years.

They were reunited.

For the Dancing and the Dreaming

I'll swim and sail on savage seas
With ne'er a fear of drowning
And gladly ride the waves of life
If you will marry me
No scorching sun
Nor freezing cold
Will stop me on my journey

If you will promise me your heart
And love (sigh)

And love me for eternity
My dearest one my darling dear
Your mighty words astound me
But I've no need of mighty deeds
When I feel your arms around me

But I would bring you rings of gold
I'd even sing you poetry [Valka: Oh, would you?]
And I would keep you from all harm
If you would stay beside me

I have no use for rings of gold
I care not for your poetry
I only want your hand to hold

I only want you near me

To love to kiss to sweetly hold
For the dancing and the dreaming
Through all life's sorrows and delights
I'll keep your laugh inside me
I'll swim and sail on savage seas
With ne'er a fear of drowning
And gladly ride the waves of life
If you will marry me
