How to feel good!!!!

If life is getting you down because you have just been told that your spouse wants a divorce or you have been made redundant try buying some flowers!!

I give myself a treat every 3 hours and drinking a latte looking at a vase of flowers is lovely.

Treats so far today ( my day started at 5am) :

1. 1 LATTE




Treats planned for tonight:

1. Listening to Barack Obama's inauguration speech

2. 1 hour's knitting (still trying to finish baby shawl).

3. 2 episodes of Gavin and Stacey

Not your idea of a treat? What is? Go do it. SO many people waste SO much of their time being miserable. Just because life is not going your way is no reason not to focus on what you enjoy doing and do it. It will make you feel better - I promise.

I saw 4 bird watchers with binoculars on the way back from the baby clinic. How hideously boring I thought - but they all had big smiles on their faces. WHAT WILL MAKE YOU SMILE - GO DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trapped by the credit crunch?

There is an assumption that the recession will result in an increase in the divorce rate as money worries force relationships to collapse under financial pressure.

The dive in house prices has left couples adrift with consent orders that cannot be implemented and a change in outlook is needed. I foresee that there will be an increase in orders in which one party retains the house and the other has a charge on it and that there will be an increase in spousal maintenance orders - less assets available to purchase a clean break!!!

What happens when couples can't afford to divorce? Maybe we will go the way of Southern Ireland - when it was difficult to get a divorce they divided the house in two - I predict that lots more people will live separate lives in the same house and there will be an increase in planning applications to convert houses into flats!!!

It's so easy to fall in love!!!

Oh no there is a general feeling of despair created by the collapse of the global economy. And it is January! Plus it is very cold and the news is focused on the war in Gaza.

How to be positive? The best cure is to fall in love then see what a positive spin you put on things.

It's minus 6 outside -good it will kill off the over population of rats.

No money. Well you want to stay in and be in a cocoon with your loved one anyway.

It's January -which means that Valentine's Day is looming!!!!

How to fall in love?

That's easy - all you need to do is find your soulmate!

How do you do that?

I think you need to be massively attracted to someone on a physical level which is fueled by a similar mental attitude and cemented by the same sense of humour. It is called chemistry. You know you are in love when you fancy someone more that anyone else you have ever met and he/she makes you laugh out loud. Some people spend their whole life searching for that special someone. Are they just extra fussy?

Life is miserable for all sorts of reasons for many people right now - if you are going through a divorce and separation then the sense of loss, failure and anxiety can be overwhelming. I am convinced that whatever crisis you are facing in your personal relationship it is possible to recover and be happier once you are through the practical side of the breakup. The key is to want to be happy - so many people don't - they are labelled as bitter and are to be avoided at all costs!!!

I was going to post a picture of my gorgeous boyfriend whom I adore but this one is funnier as the guy in the background is picking his nose!!!!!!!!!!!
