Wednesday Humor.

Poem For The Day.

The Laughing Heart - Charles Bukowski

your life is your life

don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.

be on the watch.

there are ways out.

there is a light somewhere.

it may not be much light but

it beats the darkness.

be on the watch.

the gods will offer you chances.

know them.

take them.

you can’t beat death but

you can beat death in life, sometimes.

and the more often you learn to do it,

the more light there will be.

your life is your life.

know it while you have it.

you are marvelous

the gods wait to delight

in you.

Thought For The Day.

Black For Spring Day.

Rhino poaching is a tragic, heartbreakingly sad reality in South Africa. It is a cause I hold very close to my heart. We need to spread the message that this barbaric cruelty is not acceptable and we as humankind will not stand for it. We need to show the government they are not doing enough to protect our Rhinos and we need to give these gentle beasts a voice!! Please help us stand up against Rhino Poaching in South Africa tomorrow on Spring day. Wear BLACK on the 1st September - Spring Day and tie a BLACK ribbon around the right hand mirror of your vehicle to create awareness on the senseless poaching of Rhino in South Africa. Traditionally Spring Day is a happy one when people wear bright, joyful colours, but this Spring I will be joining this worthy initiative and will be wearing my BLACK. The BLACK symbolise how bleak and dark the future looks for our Rhino population if something dramatic is not done to stop this epidemic soon! Please support this cause and spread the word.

Loving This Song!

David Gray - Ain't no love

Maybe that it would do me good
If I believed there were a God
Out in the starry firmament
As it is that’s just a lie
And I'm here eating up the boredom
On an island of cement
Give me your ecstasy I'll feel it
Open window and I'll steal it
Baby like it’s heaven sent

This ain’t no love that’s guiding me

Some days i'm bursting at the seams
With all my half remembered dreams
And then it shoots me down again
I feel the dampness as it creeps
I hear you coughing in your sleep
Beneath a broken window pane
Tomorrow girl I'll buy you chips
A lollipop to stain your lips
And it’ll all be right as rain

This ain’t no love that’s guiding me
This ain’t no love that’s guiding me

No it ain’t no love guiding me
No it ain’t no love guiding me
No it ain’t no love guiding me

This ain’t no love that’s guiding me
This ain’t no love that’s guiding me

On winter trees the fruit of rain
Is hanging trembling in the branches
Like a thousand diamond buds
Waiting there in every pause
That old familiar fear that claws you
Tells you nothing ain’t no good
Pulling back you see it all
Down here so laughable and small
Hardly a quiver in the dirt

This ain’t no love that’s guiding me


How lovely is this cheese plater. I just had to post this because it looks so divine and I absolutely love just make sense. Mmmmh, G

Poem For The Day.

This is one of my favorite poems of all time. It just seems to resonate with me, I am not sure why but it simply hits me in the soft spot inside my core. It is beautiful. G

Robert Lee Frost - Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Monday Humor :)

I adore these funny prints made by Aled Lewis. He uses little plastic animals in conjunction with speech bubbles, and the result is hilarity! I know they say small things amuse small minds, yet I can not resist been thoroughly amused by theses quirky little prints. G

Fashion Inspiration.

I love fashion. And I love seeing what the rich and famous are wearing (and doing while they wearing these clothes). This is one of my weaknesses, my indulgent obsession. It is something I am a little ashamed of, my secret obsession with celebrity gossip, their lives and their fashion. And this site is one of my favorites for celebrity fashion, its called, whowhatwear. Check it out. Some of the stuff they wear is insane and some is beautiful. I find it fun to see where fashion is headed and the mad trends that people follow. Enjoy. G

Thought For The Day.

It Has Been A While....

Hi Everyone...I am G, and it has been been too long since my last confession...I mean blog. Sorry. Things have honestly been insane. Too much has happened in this past week. Things are so difficult. This world is an impossible place to thrive in sometimes. My plate has been very full these past few weeks. And so many wonderful things have happened to me but some really terrible things seem to be happening around me to those that I love most. I have been a complete emotional reck. I am sure everyone can emphasis with this. It makes us realise how lucky we are to have our health, to have people in our lives who love and protect us, to live in a home that is safe, to have someone to lean on when things are tough. And to have a dream that can take us away from all of this. I feel so blessed to have all these things. But life is fragile, things change so quickly, we have to savor the good constantly because we never know where life will take us. I am still holding tight to my little secret that I spoke about in my previous post, this little secret is the light at the end of this dark tunnel. I can not wait to share it with you all...soon, very soon :) So remember today to kiss the ones you love goodbye. Tell them that you love them and tell them often, just incase. Morbid but it is the truth, life is tricky, impossibly short and incredibly cruel sometimes. G

I Love My Followers!!! :)

Well I would like to start my day with a big shout out to my followers! Wow, you guys are all so awesome. This morning I saw a really sweet comment from Dana, one of my lovely followers. And she was the figurative straw on the camels back. I am honestly just blown away by everything you wonderful people have to say to me about my blog. I can not tell you how incredible it feels to get comments and emails from you about my blog. It is so inspiring. Most of the time I am just writing into the great, empty, expanse that exists as the internet, but it always excites and surprises me to know people actually read my incessant babbling. So thank you. I appreciate all the support and comments I receive and please, please, please don't stop reading :) Kisses, G

It's The Weekend Baby!!!

Yay! I have taken another days leave to go away with my wonderful family. So essentially today is my Friday! I could not be more thrilled! I love going away with my family. We are all so close and we always end up having the most amazing time and making such happy memories. We are off to a beautiful, quiet, little place in the Midlands, it has lakes and trees and lots of open space. Sigh, I can't think of nothing better. Take me away! G <3

Yay, My Books Are On Their Way!!

I treated myself the other day, by buying some books from Kalahari. I have a kindle which I adore and use daily, but I also love actual books and nothing can replace the feeling of fresh pages under your fingers. So as I normally do on the rare occasion, I splashed out and spoilt myself. And today Kalahari will be delivering these babies to my door! Eeek, I am so excited!! What to read first!!! :) G

I Simply Love This.


My, oh my, this little spread looks amazing! I could eat like this everyday! This is how they eat in Italy. And this will always be done outdoors and usually under a wooden terrace with grapes growing on it. And the majority of the food on the table would have been unrooted from the garden surrounding you :) Bliss. G

Thought For The Day.

This is a really good one to put on your mirror or on your wall or at your office desk. I think we should all repeat this to ourselves each day until it becomes our mantra, these are great words to live our lives by. G

Thursday Humor.
