Ordinary People

Standard

The world is made up of all sorts of people . In our journey of life we meet some really amazing people who inspire us ,care for us and most of all appreciate us.

And then we meet some monsters , people who are fake , self absorbed and just want to hurt us. These people use us emotionally , drain us and then toss us to the kerb like a used can after fulfilling their needs at that point in time. Its awful that these people have no heart and think nothing of hurting others. I have had my experience with many of these monsters who started off as Ordinary normal people but then mutate once we let our guard down and let them into our inner circle. They then show their true self once we let them in and this is very scary. I am so glad to have gotten rid off several of these monsters from my life .They drained me emotionally drained and sucked away all my positive energy. One monster I met in London really was one of note she always put me down, passed negative comments and used me luckily I escaped from her clutches and kinda disappeared into almost thin air where she could not get hold of me. She has befriended me of Facebook and tries to fish me for information on my life .But I have become wiser and I aint afraid of this monster no more , I offer very little information and often give her the silent treatment. Monsters however dont come in the female form only but male as well. The male ones are very damaged , looking to hurt and use others then turn their backs and walk away without turning back on the damage and destruction they have left behind. I had the pleasure of meeting one male monster last year and boy was he a work of art damaged and fake to the core. I was saved from his clutches and refuse to let him emotionally drain me again.

I firmly believe that we meet these monsters on our life journey to teach us lessons. Sometimes we feel so betrayed and hurt by these monsters that we cant see the true reason they are set on our journey.Life has taught me to be positive , be happy and rid these monsters from my life . I cant fix all these monsters with their damaged pasts cause some people are not meant to be fixed ……So instead I thank them for their life lessons and appreciate the amazings friends I have all over the world, friends who love, care ,inspire and support me .I AINT AFRAID OF NO MONSTER (sung in the Ghostbusters theme song lol)

So in the words of John Legend…..We just Ordinary People……we dont know which way to go …..

Valentines with Friends….

Standard

I feel it in my fingers , I feel it in my toes…..its the month of Love and all i see are hearts, red, pinks, teddy bears….

Every year this day love dawns upon us with the onslaught of the same romantic songs and movies. For all us singletons its a day we tend to dismiss in our calendars.I personally have never had a bf for love day and only seem to meet them later on in the year.

In London a group of my friends decided to celebrate this Love day in style and in keeping with the spirit of this day. We came up with the idea of a Secret Valentine where we each would pick a name from the hat and buy that person a Valentines gift.Our group was made up of guys and girls which was a great mix of all sorts.

Us singletons met for pre dinner cocktails and gift exchanging which was a barrel of laughs . Some of the gifts were very creative, naughty , cheesy and nice.We all were dressed up in our red and black finery that evening and went to our pre booked romantic Valentines dinner with friends . The evening was a great way to spend this day that is much dreaded by many with friends who make you laugh and care for you.

Yes I am a singleton very much like Bridget Jones and yes I am still a soppy romantic waiting for Mr Darcy….. who knows what this Love Day will bring

Girls Day Out

Standard

Its always great to have a Girls Day out , day of shopping , lunch , gossip and cocktails.These days out are important food for the soul . Once a ,month generally after payday M and I have a ritual of becoming mallrats for the day.

We tend to vary our times from lunch to breakfast though breakfast cocktails are not always served 🙂 So today we decided on an activity which was a game of Bingo. We all commonly associate Bingo with old people cause watching movies have lead us to believe this myth.But all this has now changed and I actually love Bingo.

We entered into the Bingo Hall which was already full with people waiting for the next game to start. The hall had dimmed lights with music playing softly in the background . This created the feeling of a Casino in Las Vegas. It was fun playing the game and reasonable too. The menu had a great choice and reasonable prices. Its one of them places you can easily get carried away spending money on each game and forget the time. At 2pm we called it quits and headed to the shops.

As always the bookshop beckons me and I simply cannot refuse a book at a bargain price. I love this mall as it has all the shops I need and I know many of staff in different shops. This makes me feel special as a customer.I didnt blow my budget today and only bought 3 books.

M loves going shopping with me as I always tend to find the bargains and good deals.Today however we were controlled in our spending as we are both saving for some awesome adventures to come this year and next.

After we walked from end to end of the mall both floors we decided on a coffee before heading home.I totally loved today. It was great to chilll, chat , shop and have some cocktails.

Its the small things in life that mean alot. We often get so caught up in this race of life that we forget to stop have a laugh and spend the day with someone who makes us laugh.After all the craziness at work the last few weeks it was great to have a day out with M.

People watching…….

Standard

Currently sitting in a mall having a smoothie, watching the world go bye. I love people watching especially at malls and airports. I often make up stories about these people and their lives…. I love watching their expressions, dress sense and their interactions with other people.

Everyone is too busy scurrying around like rats to notice me as I sit here silently tapping away on my keyboard. Mothers with little toddlers struggling to keep them safe while shopping, bored husbands holding the shopping, young couples in love holding hands oblivious to the world, groups of giggly teenage girls all dressed up are just some of the people making my morning of people watching fun.

The foreign guys selling products have the Dead Sea are always great eyecandy to watch. Its funny how everyone, tries to not make eyecontact with them. These guys can be very persuasive and one can find a dent in their pockets pretty soon. Dead sea products are amazing but so over priced..

Its seems the places in the mall with most action are the food courts , so hence food is a good business.
Makes me then wonder is anyone even noticing me sitting there busy on my tablet or am I just invisible.Maybe I should have put on my dark sunglasses that way no one would see me and I would be mysterious. Is anyone thinking what I am doing? Is someone watching me ? Okies enough of people watching M has arrived and we are off for a girlie day of fun , laughter and cocktails.
