Much too complicated for me.  I never have 3 cups day old white rice, nor half the other ingredients on hand.  I was hoping for “Take a can of Minestrone Soup and add some supermarket roast chicken.  Heat and serve”.

Why are we arguing about doulas and what they do or don’t do?  I didn’t read it as being about doulas per se but how they were exploited by a mentally ill woman.  But if you want to make it about doulas v other traditional medical carers, no hospital nurse is going to drop everything at the hospital and rush to a pregnant woman’s side.  Doulaswill do that it seems.  That’s why she targeted them.

If people “do me wrong” and I despise them for it, so often something awful happens to them.  I started noticing this and try very hard not to harbour ill feeling.  I also often experience synchronicity, especially thinking of someone just before they call.  The other day I saw in the space of 5 minutes two cars I used to own.  These are old models and hardly any left on the road and I’d  never seen them since selling them years ago.  I can just know something is right for me and am never wrong.  I use the Tarot for insight.  For instance my husband left me after a long marriage for another woman.  I told him it wouldn’t last and he grinned knowingly.  After a few months I did his cards and hers.  He was still in love but she clearly wasn’t.  Later I heard from friends they had broken up but he didn’t want me to know.  I know the cards never lie but I acted surprised.  I also knew from the cards my first boyfriend post divorce was an idiot but I persevered anyway.  Broke my heart of course.  I don’t do anything without checking the cards these days.  I love my psychic ability.

They’re rife on Facebook.  Get messages constantly - all worded the same.  All from good looking guys from the US.  A couple I  Iooked into just for fun.  The Likes on their photos were all from young black dudes and clearly that’s who this guy is as well.  There were a couple of Likes from older white women who have clearly been targeted and who have responded.  These guys are supposedly high profile but work in countries like Yemen so you can’t find them on Google,  Doctors and retired Army Generals are typical.  Honestly some men and women have to wise up and ask themselves “Why the hell is he interested in me?”   Have realistic expectations and stay away from the good lookers who are always listed and never partner up.  They’re just players.   Ask lites of questions.  I never use my real name on sites so they can’t find me on FB.  I have found several nice guys and am currently dating a “good catch”, not that I’m interested in catching anyone.  I’m never going to live with or marry again.  Too old and I’m protecting my assets too.

Oh dear, poor Drew.  How come she didn’t google  “ Rams quarterback?”  I hope to God she doesn’t put her real name on there but uses a photo that is vague enough so she’s not instantly recognisable.  I always use photos which aren’t especially flattering in order not to disappoint.  Stay away from super good looking guys who are just players.  I said “not interested” several times to one guy but he went on begging,  Eventually I met him and after a nice chat he said “I’m not interested”.  I swear he just wanted to reject me.  LOL.

I stayed in an unhappy marriage for 38 years for the kids and the financial security.  He was an irresponsible child who drank way too much but he let me do as I wanted with wealth building and we ended up quite well off.  Then when I was 68 he left me for another woman.  Biggest favour he ever did.  Financial security is a terrible reason to stay in a marriage.  He got half the wealth I’d built and I got half his super so I ended up okay.  But I’m having the time of my life now and with younger men.  Lucky I stayed in shape and the face lift 10 years ago was worth every cent.  BTW she left him very quickly and he’s miserable.  Boohoo.

My daughter used them fortnightly in her late 20s early 30s.  Now she’s 52 and has had 2 melanomas removed from her legs.  And there’s no history of it in the family.  A lot of sun damage is irreversible so it’s not a case of having treatment later to get rid of it.

10 to 14 days in hospital these days is a seriously long time.  I hope she’s okay.

I can deal with most things except those hideous recliners people love so much.  So fugly and an assault to my senses.  Yes I know they’re comfortable but I couldn’t have them in my house.  I don’t like matched furniture either but it’s acceptable in a bedroom as long as the bedhead is just a padded headboard and the rest matches.  I loved it when antiques were a thing and you could mix it up.  Most interiors now are very modern but a Chinese chest or an antique cupboard or armoire can really elevate a room.

Ooh…. a sugar daddy!   Doesn’t take much to work out the pros and cons.  Financially secure, no pressure to have kids, the guy is sooo grateful to have a young woman on his arm.   Lots of girls looking for them it seems.  Oh well, whatever blows your hair back I guess.

They’ll be hidden in a wardrobe for goodness sake!  So much love went into making these I would look at them, cringe and smile.  I love hand knits for babies and have bought some off Marketplace.  Buy the wool and a pattern and direct her energy in a direction you’ll appreciate.

Same applies in SA.  You know the seller could, once the house is sold, cancel their insurance.  If the purchaser has insurance and something happens they’re covered so it makes sense.

Netflix QUARTERBACK.  A fascinating doco on 3 US gridiron players and the enormous dedication it takes to play this key position in a billion dollar industry.  Also the effect it has on their wives and family.

The Mormon religion sure ain’t what I thought it was.

I’ve heard those three words.  The thing is cancer is not a death sentence.  I told everyone some cells in my right boob got carried away and the party got of hand.  I persisted in thinking like this and still do.  I was REALLY lucky, I got away with a lumpectomy for which I will be forever grateful.  My type of cancer is very difficult to detect until it’s got quite large and by some miracle I found it before it reached the lymph nodes.  Now I live life on my terms so it’s had a very positive impact.

I think the hard part if they choose to watch it would be seeing themselves and others  behaving and saying things that are completely out of character.  That would make me angry, seeing my family portrayed in an unflattering or flattering manner nowhere near the truth.  I doubt whether they’d watch the bits about Diana’s death as who would want to re-live that?  I always thought parading the boys around in front of the flowers was unbelievably stupid and cruel.  Those poor kids.  Whoever thought that was a good idea was widely off the mark.  Personally I’ve seen only a handful of episodes at the behest of others.  I can’t get past the fact that it’s purely someone’s imagination at work and probably nowhere near the truth.

There’s only one thing worse than having children and that’s not having them.

Meghan knows the media and especially the Papps are Harry’s Achilles Heel.  Makes him all outraged and protective which she no doubt loves.  It’s good press (“he must really love her”) and gives her another opportunity to manipulate him (“they’re making my life miserable”).  Meghan has one agenda - herself.  A narcissist if ever I saw one.

I’m an avid mask wearer in public places like supermarkets and shopping malls.  Also an avid hand washer.  I’ve never had Covid nor even a cold since 2019.  I’m never abandoning my mask.

Nobody’s talking about the cost.  This stuff can cost around $300 a month.  Luckily I don’t want it because I couldn’t afford it anyway.
