Maya Angelou ‘Words to the wise’

I don’t want my panty to fall!!

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was Butsseeeeeeeeee ‘exciting…’body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day……like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first.

The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:

‘I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.’

‘I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled electric cord

‘I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.’

‘I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as making a life.’

‘I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.’

‘I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back…’

‘I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.’

‘I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.’

‘I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back….’

‘I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn..’

‘I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’

Don’t let the elastic break and have a great life . X

Halloween is coming, so let the Spirits dance a merry song of Joy.

Hello Beauties

Today is the first day of the half term holidays, they kids are out, the dogs are sleeping and the house is quiet, except for me tapping away and my wife and kids buzzing in the background. I’m totally blessed and appreciate these moments.

So with this in mind the family are preparing for Halloween, we are cleaning and preparing our displays in time for Saturdays celebrations. I have some of the recycled goods ready for making spooky spiders and need to get apples for glazing, webs for displaying and candy for callers. A pumpkin to light the path and candle lights to create that enchanting feeling, the kids will hopefully love.


Oven baked cookies decorated with witches and ghost. These are perfect for little nibblers.

A Haunted house has intrigue and interest, shall we go in and explore its mysteries or should we just simply give this one a miss!

No Halloween is complete without these, Pumpkins for lighting the paths that lead to the doorways of homes who are willing to please.


Now that we Witches are brewing a spell, you will be enchanted by all that we shed, for the spirits are alive with the sound of the callings and with this fine brew I wish you well Darlings!


Spells and witchery, crafts and bonds, hopes and dreams all in little jars just for fun. But be very careful what you wish for because once a spell is cast it can’t be just forgotten.

Pumpkins Spice and all things nice, this is what Halloween is all about, fragrance your home withe wonderful smells of spice to tickle your tastebuds. Set the mood for one of the biggest celebrates this year and be careful who comes knocking for not everyone comes bearing gifts, for some this is the time for misery and the company she brings.

Have a Happy and safe Halloween and if you cant get into the spirits of things!! literally just chill its just one day and will soon be forgotten.

Loving you, loving me xoxo
