I love Mondays #2 The One With Laverne & Shirley!

I know it’s not Monday, but Miss A was ill yesterday, so I didn’t get chance to post.  I didn’t think anyone would mind it being a day late…and I read the other day, that actually Tuesday is the hardest day of the week so here goes!

I really enjoyed last week, blogging about the things that I loved.  If you are new to the blog, or missed last weeks post, this is the idea behind it HERE.

Tall Dad and I were chatting and the subject of Milwaukee came up, random I know!  I knew in my memory there was a programme I watched when I was young that was set there.  Well a little research on the Internet (whatever did we do before google?) I found out that I was right! Continue Reading

Magpie Monday: A Denim Bargain

I’ve had a really busy week, but I managed to nip into a couple of charity shops. One of my resolutions this year was to try not to discount the clothes, as I always make a path for the china!

Well, my local Oxfam came up trumps!

I found a fantastic, and looks brand spanking new, denim jacket from French connection. It’s a size 10, so I didn’t think it would fit me, so straight away thought that it would be great for Miss N. Even if it did not fit now, it wouldn’t be long before it would.

So here it is: Continue Reading

Loneliness

Loneliness

Do you ever feel lonely?

When late at night you just can’t sleep, and silence is so deafening, it only reminds you of the loneliness.

You know when you feel invisible, unknown.

Or if you are in a crowd of people, and you can’t help but feel that everyone is somehow turned away from you?

Its more than a feeling of emptiness, it’s a type of solitude that can cause physical pain.

I have lots of friends, really good friends! I am also blessed with a most amazing family but I’ve always been a person who is very happy in my own company.

It’s just sometimes, I think it’s when I am feeling at my most vulnerable, the loneliness is there, and for a moment it’s painful…

Maybe in my case it’s more a state of mind than actual social exclusion?

What do you think, do you ever feel lonely?

Thank you for reading

This is a post that I wrote some time ago, but hadn’t published. I wanted to describe loneliness, and share how I sometimes feel. Hopefully if you feel simular you might feel you can comment here, even anon.
