Kawaii

Kawaii

Ok so Im in love with these dances. Seriously in love.

When Jonny and I were filming Paragon’s demo video a few days ago I wanted to pick up the wee  kawaii girls and pop them in my pocket.

Seriously adorably most cute.

I went for a little sexier mature feel to my video in red and black and music that’s as far from Kawaii as you can get. But yet I thought went quite well with the dance.

Hope you enjoy.

When the delivery came

When the delivery came

Today the most hilarious thing happened to me.

Amazon did a delivery and it was something my son had ordered and had delivered here. Because he knows I’m at home during the day to take the delivery.

So the amazon delivery guy must have been about aged 22 if a day older.

He says to me before he can give me the parcel I have to prove I’m over 18.

I look at him and simply say “I’m old enough to be your mother and then some”

He turns around and says he can’t take at face value my age and I need to prove it.

Well, what can I say. Out came the passport and he could verify my age.

For one moment I thought wow I’m so complimented by this and clearly I’ve still got it!

Until he said to me, deliveries of alcohol require them to verify ID and take down the recipients date of birth. He knows I’m his mothers age but has to prove it back at work!

My illusions shattered within seconds.

Which really adds to my last week of ageism. Even us middle aged people have to prove we are!

How ironic.

Piffle!!!! 🤣😂

Last night

Last night

I dreamt last night that I was dancing on an island and the air was cool and I was sipping iced limes in lemonade (no alcohol-shocked I know).

Reality is that I was up till around 2am if not later watching mushy films and texting a friend because there was no way I could sleep.

It’s so warm here in the uk at the moment. We are having a heatwave and frankly the uk is not designed for heatwaves.

Buildings do no have fans or air con as the standard and beaches are a day trip drive away with once you get there the sardine effect. Oh and swimming pools, they’re inside buildings!

Seriously. Outdoor swimming pools that I grew up with in the back garden are considered a luxury for the few and what there is for the local area is inside and hotter than is worth the bother.

Right now I wish I was back in Australia because I’m sweating like a sumo in a sauna hung over a rotisserie spit!

I’m going for a cold shower now. I had plans but frankly who wants to get on a hot tin can bus for 40 minutes? Not me. So staying home today.

Sizzling on my balcony

Sizzling on my balcony

As I write this I have finished for the day and am sitting on my balcony in the moonlight before I head to my bed. Checking my emails and writing this blog.

Staring out at the glistening water on the lake below me, I imagine I am like my avatar floating in the gentle cool water, cooling my lithe body.

My hair having been bleached with the days suns rays and my body warmed by its strength.

Sounds good doesn’t it?

I just saw my reflection on my phone as I tap this blog. Who am I kidding.

Oh if only ….

I’ve had an amazing evening and spent part of it with Xaos Princess and Draxtor Despres doing a podcast due out on Monday.

Don’t worry I’ll make you all listen to it. 😁

The other part, I’m not telling, but it’s good.

Goodnight my little pixels.

Angel of the morning

Angel of the morning

It’s Monday yet again and that hamster wheel called work, runs again for all today.

Anyhow that’s not what this blog post is about.

I’m watching the news about Jihadi Jack. The Isis supporter from a middle class uk family that flew out to join Isis.

His parents want him to be brought home as they don’t believe he should be banned from returning home. His parents don’t believe he was ever part of the movement.

Yet he admitted he was. They believe he was tortured to say what he did.

As parents it’s hard to accept our children could do wrong.

We look at our children as those innocent babies we brought into the world.

I’m watching this right now and feel so sad for his parents.

When their eyes eventually do open, I can’t imagine the heart ache they will eventually feel.
