10 things I have learnt lately...

25 March 2013

+ That investing in myself has been the best decision I have ever made.
+ That I still have a lot to work to do.
+ That it is possible to eat too much chocolate. I found this out Saturday after 5 hours of treat making.
+ That I am actually quite talented when it comes to all that cooking business. Over the past few weeks I have discovered that I know a lot more than I give myself credit for.
+ That I really am loved and cherished exactly as I am.
+ That I need to pursue own agenda. My circumstances are my own and my future is my own.
+ That I have my work cut out in the future when it comes to choosing our children's names.
Ben announced on Saturday that apparently 'Harrison' is off the table for a boys name (I had my heart set - gutted) and within ten minutes he had suggested HORTON and TIBERIUS as alternatives. Apparently "Horton has good connotations because he is giant talking elephant". If you don't know what I am talking about please meet Horton...
the inspiration for our future children's names. A Dr. Seuss character. Oh dear.
+ That being kinder to myself is important for not only me and my yoga practise but also for the people who I surround myself with.
+ That this quote: "Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can." will have a huge impact on me.
(Quote from Arthur Ashe.)
+ That the way Goblin climbs on my pillow for cuddles at 2am is the second cutest thing in the world. His tummy is the first.


  1. I love that quote! Investing in yourself is always important.

  2. I love this post it is so interesting. I too love chocolate and am always baking using it :) x

  3. love this post. it is so important to invest into yourself, you cant function properly if oyu don't! and... chocolate always helps :)

  4. Your first point really made me smile.
    I saw your baking on instagram, it looked delicious, I attempted to bake creme egg brownies over the weekend, I had to take them out of the oven after 10 minutes to add the Creme eggs and dropped it, mixture everywhere, it was so funny.
    Those are some interesting names Ben has chosen. If I have a son he's going to be called Noah.
    I love my cats and think they are very cute, however I wouldn't at 2am!

  5. Put your foot down on Tiberius, he wasn't even a cool Roman Emperor.

  6. Yes, yes, and yes to all of these things. Except for the Horton part, even though he is an adorable character. Not a child's name!

  7. I really need to take that quote and adopt it as a mantra, I get so caught up in making other people happy I often forget about myself

    Jem xXx

  8. Tiberius? That may be colourful, however Ben is a rookie - my first choice for a baby boy's name is Evalius (to be potentially named after one of my colourful ancestors from the 1700s) ;D xxx

  9. + You have the best hair in the bloggersphere. You forgot to add that one!! Those baked goodies looked awesome.

  10. Damn, Horton IS a good night...particularly like his reasoning!

  11. I happen to love the name Harrison. Ben is crazy! ;)

    I drooled over your baking. I love to bake but I can't let myself do it often or they'll have to cut me out of the house.

  12. What a fantastic post!
