{January 13, 2010}   Lesson of the Day 13/01/10

Ben invited his mother over for dinner. During the course of the meal, Ben’s mother couldn’t help but notice how beautiful Ben’s roommate, Jennifer, was.
Ben’s Mom had long been suspicious of the platonic relationship between Ben and Jennifer, and this had only made her more curious. Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Ben and Jennifer than met the eye.
Reading his mom’s thoughts, Ben volunteered, ‘I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you Jennifer and I are just roommates.’

About a week later, Jennifer came to Ben saying, ‘Ever since your mother came to dinner, I’ve been unable to find the beautiful silver gravy ladle.
You don’t suppose she took it, do you?’
Ben said, ‘Well, I doubt it, but I’ll send her an e-mail just to be sure. So he sat down and wrote:

Dear Mom,

I’m not saying that you ‘did’ take the gravy ladle from the house, I’m not saying that you ‘did not’ take the gravy ladle.
But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Love, Ben

Several days later, Ben received an email back from his mother that read:

Dear Son,

I’m not saying that you ‘do’ sleep with Jennifer, I’m not saying that you ‘do not’ sleep with Jennifer.
But the fact remains that if Jennifer is sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now.
Love, Mom


{January 11, 2010}   Flat hunting part 2

This gripping story of my flat hunt continues!

A flat share has been found in a cool location in Brussels and as a result I need to go and find some of stuff that currently lies in a container (from my previous flat while I couchsurf) and will lie there until I find something more permanent for all my belongings to live!
I went to find my duvet and some of my extra shoes. (they are too pretty to be left in a container with no one to watch!)

This is what I faced 🙂

{January 4, 2010}   Handbook 2010

There are many posts on New Years resolutions and my inbox has been flooded with new year resolution posts by bloggers however, I wanted to show you an email sent to me by a friend called the Handbook for 2010.

I think this best describes how to get stuff done this year 🙂


Words to live by!!!!

1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants..
4. Live with the 3 E’s — Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
5. Make time to pray.
6. Play more games
7. Read more books than you did in 2009 .
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day
9. Sleep for 7 hours.
10. Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

11. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their
journey is all about.
12. Don’t have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13. Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
14. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
18. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.

20. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons
you learn will last a lifetime.

30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
34.. GOD heals everything.
35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change..
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
37. The best is yet to come..
38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.
39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

{January 1, 2010}   Comparison of day

Its a new year and new beginnings but I will still be a TV addict. As my eyes are still half asleep I noticed this.

After the abysmal set of jokes found in the crackers at our table on Christmas – I was sent some by friends to add to the list – so here goes (and thank you!!)

This is the last posting till the new year so have a fantastic end of year – whatever you do 🙂

How do you start a book about ducks?…With an introduction.

How do you catch a rabbit? Hide behind a tree and make carrott noises.

What do you get when you cross 100 pigs with 100 deer? 200 sows and bucks!!!

Why can’t you play cards in the jungle? Because there’s too many cheetas!

What did one frog say to the other? Time’s sure fun when you’re having flies!

Why don’t anteaters get sick? Because they’re full of anty-bodies!

What do you call an Italian feline trying on clothes? Catalina dressing.
