Aww LMS how cute is your boyfriend's son! Very sweet. I love you
Sounds like you've had a wonderful day all around. Heart with flowers

Sounds like lovely days all round here!

I've had a nice Mummy/Son day

last night i discovered an old game online i used to play on my Mega Drive when i was a kid, and my boy then reminded me i had bought him the Ultimate Sega collection for the x box, so we've literally spent the day playing all the old 80/90's games like Golden Axe and Altered Beast, Echo the Dolphin and loads more, its been great, cheered us both up no end Smile

It feels so good to read your happy stories!

I feel really in sync today. Yesterday I decided to stop giving meaning to my outer world and stop worrying and finding solutions to things. Even though it takes some effort to quiet a mind who has been restless for so long I had a really good day so far!

Just before I arrived at work I thought about how great it would be if my client didn't show up so I would have some time for myself. Luckily that happened! Yay! I had time to go to lunch with my awesome coworkers. Yay!

To distract my mind from thinking I totally devoted myself to cleaning my windows and bike. How mindfulness I felt AND I finally got that stuff done. Felt really good about myself. Yay again. After that I went to the supermarket and I love free food samples. Luckily I got the cash register with the free chocolates. Exactly what I wanted at that time of the day! Yay!

So I am going to yoga now with my friend. Continuing my day feeling blessed!

It's lovely to hear your happy stories too LMS! Sounds like you've really been in a positive zone. Sun Nighty, I'm so glad you've had some great mother-son time.  Heart

I've found out that an international colleague I really admire live tweeted my talk at a recent conference. The day up to that point had been pretty horrible - yet despite everything, when I saw this, I wanted to do a happy dance. It's always nice to get recognition in academia, but this put an extra spring in my step as I never ever expected H. to be interested in my work - he's a medievalist and I mainly work on the sixteenth century.

Update: Also had a 12km hilly bike ride and some wonderful chess time with my dad. Despite everything going on, I am lucky. Cute flowers

I have this friend and every time I see him I cant stop laughing. I dont know what it is, but sometimes you have one of those friends and he is one of them. So meeting him in less Good times is always a good idea. We went out for drinks and it's the first time in weeks that I laughed more than once. I also asked him not to talk about he whom must not be named again Wink so we talked about a whole bunch of other stuff. Ok we might have talked about the not to mention topic a little, but not in a negative way. Anyways, it made me feel really good! Yay!

This morning, I ran into an old acquaintance who said I still look like an 18-year-old. Wink You know you're getting old when people telling you you look young feels like a huge compliment - I remember when I was actually 18, I wanted to look older. Laughing

Haha thats awesome Evie! Cherish that young you!

So I was listening to the art of allowing video from Abraham and she was talking about that even if you don't know the key to the door someone always has a key to open the door. I was listening to it while cleaning my shed that holds 15 years of clutter. So I put something to hold the main door open while my keys were still in my shed door inside. I went away to throw stuff at the trash and when I came back the front door was closed. While all my keys were still in my door including the keys to my flat Sad I think there are only 3 people a day coming there, I went to my sister who has my spare key but she wasn't home. While I tried to decide what to do there was this man walking towards my building so I decided to follow him and what do you know he opened the main door so I could get in... Speaking of synchronicity ... Lol Anyways I see it as a sign that I am on the right path getting in tune again with my true self Smile

You look really young too LMS. Very Happy Cool

Today I've been lucky. After thinking many times I'd like to look at Little Miss Sunshine's blog again, but always forgetting where I saw the link Embarassed , I remembered the name, googled, and have been happily reading. I won't share the link here in case Little Miss wants to keep it private, but it's such a fantastic blog! They have great articles, photos, and poetry too -- this one particularly struck me, and though I've read some Maya Angelou I confess I haven't read enough -- so it's been an education (see below).

P.S. So good to see so much Sacher and other Viennese coffee and cake on the blog! Like a Star @ heaven

PHENOMENAL WOMAN

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.

I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

By Maya Angeou

Ow that's lovely isn't it. Ofcourse you can mention my blog Smile we are on a "spiritual" break though. I couldn't get myself back to writing lately ... Unfortunately Sad and my friend has some issues to solve as well. It sure is something we really enjoy so hopefully we will be back soon. I am so happy that you like it though! It gives me strength to continue with it once we are both back on our feet Smile you are the greatest <3

1. That random moment you realise an Oxford professor has been following you on Twitter for months now.

2. Walnuts dipped in horseradish spread. I'm seriously in love.

3. This should go in the Gratitude thread, but I cherish my iPhone so much. Now that I've updated to the latest IOS, it works like a dream.

Yay well that's happy stuff Evie Smile

1. I almost got into a car accident but I didn't. I managed to pull my car away in time. Actually it happens often that I get into almost accident but I don't and people around me do. I wonder sometimes if it is my guardian angel. I have this spiritual acquaintance who once said I have one.

2. 6 weeks ago I started working in a new team and there is one co-worker whom I could sense didnt really like me. I don't know, she complained a couple of times this week about me. I decided to ignore the situation, turn the other way and today she approached me in a very friendly manner when she told me she wanted us to have a fresh new start yay!

3. I feel happy Smile

oh my goodness LMS I'm so glad you're okay!! That's so scary *shudders* But thank goodness you're blessed with good luck.


according to the internet, this is supposed to be a (erm in our case virtual) gift for good luck....  I'm not sure if they know what they're talking about, but well, this is for you! A little bit extra to keep you lucky. hugz

I'm so glad everything is working out perfectly for you. It's great that things turned around with the co-worker!

Please update us on any more experiments you make, Berry! Smile

Today, during some (rare Suspect ) FB procrastination, my intuition told me to post on a friend's photo-captioning challenge. 'It's good for networking within academia,' added Ms Intuition (yes, she can be pretty worldly sometimes). Sure enough, the editor of a major academic journal liked my "submission". Colonel Roosevelt This was pretty neat because even though my friend is on the faculty at Oxbridge, not all his friends commenting were academics, but Ms Intuition was still totally on point. (Kind of like the time she said 'if you walk into this shop with this bag from the other store, it will set the security alarm off' Scratchhead ) What followed was some hilarious tongue-in-cheek discussion about interpretation. Totally lifted my day and reminded me of one of the reasons I do the hard slog of PhDdom...   it's useful for photo caption contests! Laughing

Also, today is Luney's birthday. That's pretty cool! Cool Like a Star @ heaven

Now if I can just keep the panic attacks at bay it's all going to be fine...... cyclops

Today my mum bought me a jacket a bit like this, only prettier--vintage rose, and with a hood. For my upcoming trip to England. I'm so grateful and happy.

I went to the Swedish Bakery this morning and I got myself a rum log, a chocolate coated marzipan toska bitar, and a slice of marzipan cake.

I love marzipan!!

I don't know why but today feels like one of those good days where the elevator opens right in front of you nose, stop lights immediately switch to green, cars getting out of the way, butterflies all over to celebrate this summer Smile
