I went to a Psychic Dinner!

Hi Peabodies.

I recently went to a Psychic dinner! It was something out of the box for me and heaps of fun.
I was invited by my lovely friend Ruth!

When we sat down we had three cards in front of us which told us which Psychics we were seeing.
I had a tarot reading and a sit down with two clairvoyants/mediums.

My Psychics!

There was also a couple of ghost whisperers walking around and selecting people when the spirits wanted to talk to them.

The food was rubbish so I won't go into that but here is a recap of the predictions I received:

Theres travel in my horizon.
A new job on the way (this was predicted by two different psychics)
A celebration around my marriage,
My next baby will be a girl ( predicted by two different psychics again)
and the next baby after that will be a boy!

One of the Clairvoyants really touched on a personal issue of mine and she really managed to outline exactly what was going on  - She knew all sorts of things and I didn't even say anything to her except hello. She read my energy and talked to the spirits. It was very surreal.

Also just before I was about to leave one of the ghost whisperers put his hand on my shoulder, I jumped and felt a tingle! He said there was an older gentleman with me that used to put boot polish on his bald spot - and that I should ask my Gran. Well I haven't had a chance to ask her yet but I'll keep y'all posted

I'm not sure if I'm a true believer or not it was a such a great night! Something I would love to do annually!

Have you been to a psychic?
Do you ever get your tarot done?

I wonder if the predicitions will come true?
I guess I'll have to wait and see!

Easter wrap up, Project Sandman update and Meditation.Phew.

Happy Easter Peabodies

How was your Easter? I hope you had a wonderful one. Did you spend time with family? I hope you all got a chance to relax. I love Easter time, in our house its hot cross buns, cups of tea and gearing up for winter - getting ready to snuggle under the doona. The EmuUggs are on even though its been unusually warm, I feel if I put them on then the rain is sure to follow.

Usually the Mushypeas family go camping but this year was Pipsqueaks first birthday, she's all wobbly on her feet and still finding her balance so we thought a crawling baby in the bush wouldn't be much fun.
We had a very small get together for her birthday - our normal Easter get together with a birthday cake really. 
I love making birthdays magical for the kids. I feel like every year I learn a little more about putting on a good party.
This year I was calm and relaxed for the first time ever and I'll put together a blog post with some great tips about kids parties soon.

Project Sandman by the way was a complete bust! Failed by the second night.
The first night we were good boys and girls we went to bed right on time.
Night two saw me crawl into bed at 11:30.
Night three was 12:30.
But by night four I gave up trying.

I have since then found a meditation app on my iPhone. I use a quick 15 minute one it calms me down and helps me sleep much better. Theres lots of medication apps out there  - its about finding one that suits you.
It definitely calms me down - gives me a better night sleep and a calmer outlook for the following day.

Do you mediate?
By yourself or with a class? 
Does it help you?

My 100 happy days is still going strong. I'll post some more on that later in the week too.

Well I can't stay here and type when there's chocolate to be eaten!

Peas Out.

100 Happy days - Day 6 to 12

Hi Peabodies

Did you head over to 100 happy days?

Last week I shared my first 5 days into the project 100 Happy Days - You can read about it here

Below are days 6 to 12.
I must admit I started to find it tricky this week.
I was struggling to find things to post.
For this project I wanted to try and find things outside of my daughters - otherwise it would just the 100 pictures of my girls.
I wanted to challenge myself to look at the great stuff outside of my family. Thats not to say that they won't ever be a picture of them included within in this project - I just wanted to push outside the given.

This project is really forcing me to stop and look. Think and evaluate.
And even though this week, I sometimes struggled, I'm glad I have all these things that makes me happy and I truly value the reflecting time, even if it just a couple of minutes.

Day 6 - A cuppa

Day 7 - My Emu Uggs

Day 8 - Miss L playing with her dolly house

Day 9 - I was having such a good time lunching with friends I forgot to take a photo

Day 10 - My Morning coffee - Can you see the Polar Bear watching the sunset?

Day 11 - Sunday Afternoons in the park

Day 12 - Miss L's Kindy artwork

Do you take the time to stop and smile?

Catching ZZZZ's - Project Sandman

Hi Pea bodies

Are you a night owl?
Do you have trouble going to bed? To sleep?
The Husbeast and I are so tired, but yet we don't go to bed.

As part of my new years resolution I resolved to go to bed earlier ( read more here)
But thats not happening. 
Miss L drags me out of bed at about 7 ( I know, I know..... thats not even early) and it takes me till about lunch and two coffees before I function.

It's terrible.

Every night we say "tomorrow we must go to bed earlier!" 
Then we say it again in the morning.

But for some reason it never happens.

Whats wrong with us?

We are adults. Like proper grown ups, but yet getting up to going to bed is really hard!

Once the kids are in bed then thats our free time - we get so little of it we try to hang onto to every second.
But we are wasting it - being a zombie in front of the telly is not effective use of free time.

Its no wonder that Miss L throws a tantrum every time she has to leave the park - her free time is over.
The Husbeast and I aren't throwing tantrums but perhaps  if you think about it maybe we are silently. 
We are sticking to the man! 

The only problem with that is we ARE the Man in this situation and the only person we are hurting is ourselves.

Enough is enough Peabodies.

Enter project sandman.
Here are the rules.

1. This project goes for 1 week.
2. At 9.30pm the TV gets turned off
3. We have 30 mins of reading time (no screens before you go to sleep is said to increase the quality of your sleep)
4. At 10 its lights out,
5. The only exception from these rules is to include 'business time'

(for more clarification on 'business time' visit The Flight of the Conchords here)

I've got big expectations for this project,
I want to get better quality sleep - (quitting sugar has helped me with this)
I want to get out of bed earlier and happier - I've got fantasies of drinking a HOT coffee without any interruptions while the kids are still asleep! Imagine that!?
I want to read more and value my tv shows more!!

So tonight marks night 1 so I had better go and get some zzzzz!

Peas Out!
