Have a Fantastic Summer! #SchoolsOut

Today’s the day! School is officially over for the summer holiday, and I for one am ecstatic. We have experienced a very challenging and emotionally draining year, culminating in a near-fatal illness for my eldest daughter, and the chaos of moving house. Now we have finished the most disruptive renovation projects, namely rewiring the whole house and installing a brand new central heating system, and we can slowly begin the task of planning how to decorate and modernise our new home.

But never mind all of that. It is summer, we are free from the constraints of school for six weeks, and we are gonna enjoy it! We have a fifth birthday to prepare for, a family holiday to Northumberland, and all sorts of other day-trips, outings and social fun to be had. See you in September!

End of Another School Year

We are limping towards the end of school year, and what a busy one it has been. My youngest daughter is about to move up from Reception into Year 1, and my eldest daughter will be a Junior when they return to school in September. How did that happen? My babies are growing up fast. They have both thrived at school, and I am so happy to see how happy and confident they are. We had fun at the school summer fair a couple of weeks ago, and we look forward to a very important fifth birthday and our family holiday soon after we break up from school. Happy Summer, everyone!

What’s My Vibe?

This week I am working on self-healing and have been thinking about where I am in the vibrational frequency zone. Some days I feel completely high and floaty, quite literally away with the fairies. Other days I am back down to earth with a bump and feeling sluggish. Many people in the holistic health field will recommend different methods for keeping your energy vibration high. They will say that the higher your vibe, the better you feel, and the more enlightened you become in the grand scheme of the universe.

Witchy Wednesday SpookyMrsGreen

For now, I am content to ride the vibes in whatever way they manifest. I have no desire to reach ultimate enlightenment. I am merely human, after all, with human desires, ideals and beliefs. I will continue to practise reiki energy healing and try to establish the root cause of my sudden croaky voice and sore throat. I will try and put my house back together after some rather invasive but necessary renovation work. Above all, I will try to do what I always do: be kind to myself and to others, be the best mother and wife that I can be, and work on my writing projects. That will make me happy. What’s your vibe?

Happy Birthday, NHS! #NHS70

Our National Health Service just celebrated its 70th birthday, and for some reason this was considered a big milestone by the media. I even received a postcard with my monthly prescription delivery celebrating the event. Perhaps it is because the NHS has helped millions more people reach the age of seventy than they would have done in the years before, I don’t know. All I do know is that I owe my life to the NHS.

Happy Birthday NHS SpookyMrsGreen

I think most people in the UK have a story to tell about their health and the role of the NHS. Mine began literally when I was born, and I got the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck. Thanks to the fact that my mum was in hospital and being treated by skilled medical staff with the latest technology, they were able to monitor my heart beat and knew when it was critical to get me out. Then they had to decide if I was big enough to avoid going in an incubator. I was a cute baby!

It's Complicated

So there begins my NHS story, and it doesn’t end there. The NHS has been responsible for treating and monitoring my various eye conditions since I was a toddler (although I did have a few years of private care), and they now continue to care for me in adulthood. They helped me through two pregnancies, birth and beyond, and let’s not forget all those visits to the local GP for minor health complaints and prescription checks. Yes, I am very grateful to the NHS, and I will always support it. Will you?

A Reiki Healing Crisis

I am currently experiencing a healing crisis. This happened following my work with reiki energy healing, and the guidance of my teacher and my fellow students. The crisis is very personal, and it basically came about because I had a meltdown during our renovation work on the new house. It seems I had been bottling up my emotions for a very long time, despite telling myself that everything was under control. It clearly wasn’t. I enjoyed a beautiful reiki retreat day, and a few hours after I got home, I fell apart.

A Reiki Healing Crisis SpookyMrsGreen

Today I feel exhausted but better, if that makes sense. This needed to happen. I am still a mess of emotions, and I’m sure there is more to come. I have a lot of internal healing to do! But that is fine. Now I am better equipped to help myself, which is what reiki is intended for. I will simply leave the skilled workmen to do their job (installing better technology in our home to improve fuel efficiency), and I will do my job (self-healing, self-care and a little R&R). When that is done, I will be able to help other people with their own crises, as I have been doing all along. Namaste.

Making a House our Home

We have been in our new house for a month now, and we love it! Well, I say we love it. My 4-year-old daughter told me that she has sad feelings because she misses our old house. I think she is still trying to process the chaos that came from packing boxes in a confined space, and having to move, and now dealing with the subsequent renovations on the new house. We are in a state of upheaval still, with boxes piled up in the dining room and garage, beds and furniture stacked in the bedrooms, and carpets lifted so that workmen can gain access to pipes and wires beneath the floorboards.

You see, this house was built in around 1959, and hasn’t been updated for over thirty years. We decided to rewire the whole electrical system and bring it up to 21st century standards, and to upgrade the central heating. I really cannot understand this business about having tanks of water above your head to provide warmth in the home! I need them out, so that will be done very soon. And then perhaps I can focus on redecorating and turning the house properly into our home. Our energy is creeping in slowly, we have got our furniture, some new items on order, and plans to do further alterations when finances allow. It is a work in progress, but for now we can settle in and accept that we are able to relax, finally, as our children grown up. We have a secure, settled base from which to grow, and that is a precious and valuable thing.

Time Out!

I need some time out! Luckily, I have a fantastic group of friends, and they have organised our annual Mummies Spa Weekend. Tomorrow I am leaving my husband in charge of the children (or is that the other way around?) and I am heading out with my friends for two days of rest and relaxation. We will have our group therapy session, which basically means drinking fizzy wine and discussing all our current life dramas, we will finish some conversations, and we will be quiet and restful. See you next week!

I am Allowed to Feel my Feelings

Do you ever find yourself being grumpy or emotional or upset about something, and then mentally giving yourself a kick up the backside? Growing up I was taught to always be grateful for what I got. I was the child of loving parents and a secure family unit, we had a comfortable home, regular income and all the trappings of white British society. I had no reason to complain or feel sorry for myself. Not the years of bullying at school, a lifetime of hospital treatments and eye pain, or my parents very painful divorce. I was supposed to get on with it and keep smiling. But sometimes, I just want to wallow in self-pity, or rage and scream, or have a good old cry and get everything out of my system.

Like this week, for example. The heatwave is getting hotter, and my eyes are killing me. I am not exaggerating. Due to the nature of my eye condition, I have no eyelashes on the top lid of my left eye. I pulled them all out with tweezers, because they were hurting me. But now my eye has no protection, so the grit can get in. And my severe Dry Eye Syndrome means that I don’t make enough natural lubrication to protect the surface of my cornea. So, it hurts a lot. My vision is blurred, and yet I will not step away from the laptop. I must work. I must write, I must find a job, I need to earn some money. But do I really need to do all of it right now? Probably not.

You see, I am also fortunate that my husband earns enough money to provide for our family so that I can be the housewife. Now that might change again very soon, but I’m trying not to worry about it. What I need to do right now is allow myself the space to process everything that has happened in my life during the past few months. I need to express the grief and relief about what happened to my daughter when she was hospitalised. We almost lost her, but she recovered. That was a miracle, it was magical, it was special. Then we had the drama of moving house, which I pretty much organised and project managed by myself. It was a huge job, and one that I am actually very proud to have done. But it goes unrecognised. Life goes on. Our daughter recovered so we have nothing to feel bad or upset about, do we? We now live in a beautiful, spacious house that is perfect for us, and we should be happy. I am happy. But I am also exhausted, in pain, numb, even. So much activity and so many emotions. I am allowed to feel all of this and to express all of this. I am human. Blessed Be.
