School holidays

I’m really looking forward to school holidays.. 2 weeks at home with the kids. No early morning starts and plenty of time for hugs 🙂
I am once again running my Children’s Affirmation and Meditation Workshop, where I teach children how to use affirmations for everyday life and also introduce them to meditation, allowing them to become relaxed and let their imaginations help guide their meditative journeys.
I’m also thinking about how I will fit in going to the gym during the holidays, at this stage I’m going to go when my husband gets home from work. I am really proud of how often I’ve been going to the gym, this week I have been everyday except one!
So far I’ve been really surprised at how much I am enjoying going to the gym, I find myself thinking about it at night, working out how I’ll fit it in to my next days schedule.. The biggest surprise so far is how disappointed I feel when I realize that I have to leave the gym and head home!
I’m still only on the treadmill, but I’m trying really hard to push myself a little bit harder each time, whether it’s an extra 5-10mins on the treadmill or upping the speed I’m walking at.

We have a family function on the weekend to go to, we’ve arranged babysitters for our children.. I was a bit concerned about some of the people that will be there, when they drink they have a tendency to become rude and disrespectful, and really inappropriate around children. Since its for my brother in laws birthday, we can’t really not go, but I can at least make sure the kids aren’t subjected to anything they shouldn’t be.
I really should add that the crazy people aren’t our family.. My BIL’s GF has a family (herself included) that would put most Jerry Springfield guests to shame. There seems to be dramas anytime more than three of them get together, mostly revolving around conversations that go like this:
person one “what did you say about my best friends brothers girlfriends daughter?”
person two “I didn’t say nuffin”
Person one “bullshit, my Aunties best friends sister heard you and she don’t tell lies”
Person three “if you don’t leave my cuz alone ima gunna smack you in the head”
Person one “and besides, you don’t even have no friends cos you just write shit on Facebook all day”
Usually at this point, there’s a mad scramble for phones, so they can all update there statuses (blocked by myself months ago) and find out how many people believe that person two is a “skanky lame faced hoe”
I’m hoping that most of this can at least wait until after the cake, I’d really like to have some before we leave!
Anyway, thanks again for allowing me to share part of my life with you.
Enjoy your weekend, and be sure to have fun!

hmm and ahh.

So I have had a few awkward health issues lately..  and I though (after some prodding from friends) I thought I should get my act together and head to the drs..

to cut a long story short, I had to have some blood tests done and maybe and MRI scan depending on the results. The Dr suspects my pituitary gland is working over time, and if it’s just that I can be fixed with medication.. but if it’s because of a growth it can mean other stuff.  99% of the time the growths are benign.. but sometimes they aren’t.

I still have to wait and find out when my husbands tonsils are coming out and my 5yo is still having minor problems with his bowel.. I simply do not have time to be sick.  argh!

so i’m probably getting worried about nothing.. and I can’t do anything about it.. I won’t have any results until at least Monday.. going to be a long weekend..

I feel really silly complaining and worrying about this.. there are plenty others out there who are far worse off than me..  but I can’t help it.  

so that’s my whinge over and done with.. next blog will be happier.. I promise!

Love Savvyannah

That was the week that was

Things are finally starting to slow down here. My daughters birthday went really well, she had two friends sleep over and as you can guess, they were very chatty!
I got them to play a game where I had frozen a block of chocolate 🙂 they had to sit in a circle and take turns rolling the dice. When they rolled a six they had to put on a pair of gloves, a scarf and a beanie and then try and cut the chocolate with a knife and fork!
It was hilarious! They were all in fits of giggles and every time one of them rolled a six they would all yell “SIX!”
The day of her birthday we had family up and of course had a cake. I made some cupcakes


Which were a hit!

I also made a drastic move with my hair.. I am now a red head… A real orangey red head!
And my lobby curly hair is now sitting up above my shoulders… And when it’s curly I think it’s going to be just below my ears… Haven’t had it this short in ages!


Oh! And I’ve been to the gym twice this week! First time in my life! I was so proud of myself today,I spent 35 mins on the treadmill and got up to 5.3kmph on a 2% gradient.. Feeling mighty fine right now and really looking forward to seeing a slimmer, smaller me in the future!

With much love

The numbess washes over me.. I am blind and yet I see.

My heart has dropped a thousand miles,

Why is it so hard to believe?

The flame that once burned so bright, is all but a soften glow.

I’ve tried, I’ve cried, I’ve died inside. Not that you would ever know.


Somehow this has consumed you. You’re now nothing but a shell..

It’s almost like you’ve come to believe you deserve your own personal hell.

Despite it all, despite my tears, my anger and my pain.

I will never ever give up hope, that one day you’ll say my name.


And instead of saying it with hatered, full of bitterness and spite.

You’ll understand the choice I made, the one that haunts me til this night.

Until that day I live in hope, that tomorrow will be the day.

The day you make the choice and say I no longer wish to  live this way.

And when you do, reach out for help, and follow it all the way through.

Just know I’ll be standing here, arms wide open ready to  say I love you.
