Why am I happy?

orange with leafI am not on any pick me up drugs. I am at my worst on beauty stakes. In terms of my weight, it is the heaviest I have ever been. I could be earning substantially more money, but I am not. I have resigned myself to a single life.

Despite all the above, over the past 6-8 days, I have been so happy. I do not know why. What is happening to me? Is it ageing? Is it because of some chemical changes in my brain? Are they?

My flat is a mess. I want my home back! I am still happy. There are a few other issues going on, guess what, I am still happy. Continue reading “Why am I happy?”

My Week – So little time

My Sunday Ramblings

It was an exhausting week. I do not have any intentions to work over the weekend. Both the mind and the body have given up. It was a week of very late nights. Thank goodness it is Friday.

Not now please

successIt is always at the most inappropriate times that what I really want comes up. There is so much going both on the work front and my personal life front that I wish this opportunity (?) could have waited for a few more months.

I had an email from the landlord of a shop front asking if I was interested in his shop. The way things are I am not sure.  I viewed the shop about a year ago and the landlord would not drop his rent. So I moved on.
