Words for Women to Live By

1. Aspire to be Barbie - the bitch has everything. 
2. If the shoe fits - buy them in every colour.
3. Take life with a pinch of salt... A wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila.
4. In need of a support group? - Cocktail hour with the girls!
5. Go on the 30 day diet. (I'm on it and so far I've lost 15 days).
6. When life gets you down - just put on your big girl panties and deal with it.
7. Let your greatest fear be that there is no PMS and this is just your personality.
8. I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.
9. Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.
10. Don't get your knickers in a knot; it solves nothing and makes you walk funny.
11. When life gives you lemons - buy some Coronas.
12. Forget about the perfect man - he's living in Bondi with his boyfriend.
13. Keep your chin up, only the first 40 years of parenthood are the hardest.
14. If it has Tyres or Testicles it's gonna give you trouble.
15. By the time a women realizes her mother was right, she has a daughter who thinks she's wrong.

'Good friends are like stars.........You don't always see them, but you know they are always there'

'Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today'.

ch ch ch changes…

Much is afoot here. Many things are changing and I am feeling sooo good about this. My husband and I have finally made positive steps towards moving apart. I am on the hunt for a rental property right now, big enough for me and the kids. Everyone is taking it all really well. I didnt want to really tell my youngest about it all yet - at least not until we had somewhere to go or some plans in place. But he overheard a conversation, and being the sensitive, intuitive boy he is, he picked up on our cryptic conversation and put two and two together. He was a bit upset at first, but has come around, knowing that he will only be a couple of kilometres away from daddy and can visit practically any time. Middle child was always ok with it - eldest has come around quite well, so all is pretty good.

I sent an email to the estate agent that we have always used, and he responded immediately. He is well out of our area, but has taken me on board again - he has lots and lots of contacts and has always looked after me in the past. He has told me to use his name on any reference I want - so that makes me feel good to know that he is helping me.

I am actually really excited. I am looking forward to moving.

i know it will be really hard, but it will be worth it, i know that for sure.

i have the support of some incredible friends.

I was only saying to my daughter a little while ago how truly blessed I am to be able to count as my friends quite a few truly inspirational women. Women who have influenced my life and supported me. Women who have shown me by example how to be their authentic selves. I am honoured beyond belief. Most of them will not read this post. Some will - and i bow to you. May that I honour you in return by living up to the example you have set me.


On the other hand - it still continues to amaze me how low some people will actually go. The old saying “revenge is best served cold” is alive and kicking. Betrayal and disloyalty are two character traits that I count up there with dishonesty and selfishness. I am saddened to have witnessed some truly low acts. I take these as an example of how NOT TO BE and try to move on.


anyway - thinking of you who may be sad this evening, and also of those who are rockin’ to acca dacca - woo hooo!!!


Oh well, I best retire, I am off to work tomorrow (fourth day this week :) ) and need all the beauty and brains sleep I can get.


Luv Jen
