"Today I don't feel like doing anythingI just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything..." 
- - The Lazy Song - 
Bruno Mars 

It's always hard to forget about the mess of today. It's hard to remember that nothing lasts forever, and tomorrow a new day beings, you get a new start. I applaud those who DO think like that because for a lot of us in the world, its a very hard concept to live by. Me, I am a constant worrier. Always worrying about tomorrow, what I need sorted before I go to bed, where I'll be working at. Always thinking about when we can take our next trip...blah blah blah. But I do have to say I am comin' round! I think living in England has helped me to start that. The people here just seem to be very relaxed. They don't seem to 'care' as much about everything, or the little things perhaps. I know being a teacher we get holidays every 6 weeks. Amazing I know. But probably not in the best interest of the children.

 Today I had the day off and so happy for it! I've actually enjoyed doing nothing :) The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars is such a good relaxing song. I actually stopped and took the time to learn a new song on the guitar, play it to my other half and have a good old singing session. It was fab!

Day three of writing this post... and another open day for me :) The sun is shinning and the weather is beautiful, what more can you really ask for. I originally began this post today with something to say, and its completely flown my mind. Lately i feel like the creative juices just haven't been flowing, and now im just gibbering and gabbering. So i think ill stop myself now. cheers!

...oh life...

Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, 
a tragedy for the poor.
Sholom Aleichem  

I enjoy this quote because it shows two sides to our society: one - that being rich will make your life better. That being rich is something to strive for in life, that it is the most important goal in life. Shows the gap in society. Supports stereotypical characters often portrayed in films. On the OTHER side to this spectrum - two - "Life is a dream..." and that's what people tend to forget. They forget what its really about. No one ever said you needed money to find happiness. Life is what you make of it. Dreams are what drives people in their lives, its what pushes them to no end, its what they search for. And a life alone is probably the worst kind of all. Whats the point of dreaming of all these wonderful possibilities when you have no one to share it with. And I don't just mean your other half, I mean ALL the people in your lives - your friends, family, neighbours, co-works, and other halves. These people are the ones who make everyday life enjoyable. Life is not a tragedy for the poor. LIFE itself is joyful. LIFE itself is a blessing. LIFE is amazing for everyone, and you only get one, and some people forget that. So, I suppose my message is remember that ONE chance is the only one you get. Make it count.

Eventually we all show our true colours. Whether it be through the words flying from your mouth or the lack of words, lack of communication. Eventually we see that friendship becomes a convenience or inconvenience for some. The people who you thought would always be there all of a sudden have fallen through the cracks. We all have those people. We all have those people who we THINK will always be there regardless of the circumstances. Funny how things change, how people change. Can we as human beings really rely on other people? We are such a double faced species. One minute perfectly happy and the next minute trash talking the person you just walked away from. One minute best friends the next mortal enemies. But we need these people in our lives. We need the company, we need the companionship, we need that friendship. So why do we destroy them? We are funny creatures.

Moving to a whole new country is something that people either do to get away from their current situation, or if you belong in the better graces of society, you move for the experience. One of the hardest things to do in my opinion. Lots to leave behind but also lots to gain. In the past 6 months I have had the pleasure of spending time with some special people. Unfortunately the time has come to say goodbye. These ladies came over the pond, experienced a bit of UK life, and like smart girls decided to make the move back to the homeland. The good, amazing, makes sense homeland. GOODBYE CAILEY & LIZ! Its been a blast and we have lots to travel when you revisit! 
I know this is a late post but I've been busy! lol Here are some great group moments just before they hopped on their plane!

OLD STOCK JOINT - February 2011

Just before these ladies moved back we had a small little get together/goodbye session :D

 Andy - Bobby - Mike
