Potential A

Potential A

I’ve been meeting Potentials online for about 4 years. Yes it would be great to be more organic about these things but … where do you get the time? Where do you meet these Potentials? I wrote off the bar scene off ages ago. The guy slurring in my face telling me how hot I am just doesn’t speak Potential to me. I’m not that consistent with my church attendance and I’m not up for joining every after work church activity possible just to meet a Potential. Weddings are out … women my age are… Continue reading →

Extreme Dating

Extreme Dating

Once upon a time there was a princess who desperately wanted to find her Prince. She was beautiful, kind, accomplished and yes, somewhat snobbish. She met men from far and wide but still could not find her Prince. They just didn’t click. At least she had her talking frog friend to chat to. Froggy was such a great pal. He understood her. And one day, quite by mistake, she kissed him and right before her eyes he turned into the most magnificent man. They clicked. She had finally found her Prince. Fast forward to now….

Change

Change

I am an avid journal writer and my collection of “works” goes back to when I was 13. Keeping in mind that I will be 39 this year you can imagine how much incriminating material that is. And while so much has changed, so much has not. I am still short. I still hate injustice and corruption. I still have insane crushes and I am rendered positively mute when I meet an attractive man I am still loud and this is in fact seems to have got worse! I still love more than I hate… Continue reading →

Are you serious?

Are you serious?

“Wealthy sugar mummy wanted for romance and company, serious and starved women only” This is an ad I found recently in a personals section of a local daily. Don’t bother asking what I was doing and do forgive me for the rant that is about to follow but naturally it made quite an impression. I’ve tackled the dating a younger man question in a previous post and here I am again. No doubt I will have much to contribute on the subject so watch this space. You see for me, and I’m sure for many… Continue reading →

Celebration

Celebration

I do not know where 2010 has gone. I feel like I’m orbiting through life at break neck speed. At this rate I may as well start planning my 40th birthday which is a mere 46 months away! As each year draws to a close I like to do my celebration list. Undoubtedly there will be loads more to add by the end of the year but for now …. I celebrate … Love … In the smiles and tears of my children In the time spent with my treasured family In the making of… Continue reading →

Cheaters 101

Cheaters 101

In 2006 I really got into watching the TV show “Cheaters” on Reality TV. Over popcorn and wine I’d follow the presenter with his cheesy comments, cackle over the surveillance and gleefully support the cheated when they confronted the cheater – partner, lover, husband, wife, what did it matter? They were busted and being humiliated. Yeah. Justice! People these days talk about infidelity with such nonchalance. Like many others before me I was fairly confident about what I would do if I ever found out my man was cheating on me. My back up plan,… Continue reading →

Just buy a ticket already…

Just buy a ticket already…

Once upon a time there was a man who kept pleading with God to let him win the lottery. Like all good prayerful people he was extremely persistent with this request, right down to the gnashing of the teeth and wearing of sackcloth. God was paying attention of course but eventually could take it no more. One day, as “gnasher” (as he was more popularly known by now) started his wail of the day, God’s voice boomed down from heaven in that way that it does … “ Dude … I’ll let you win BUT… Continue reading →

Blossom

Blossom

This blog, like so many other things in my life, has until now been yet another example of something I enjoy doing in a half -hearted, non committal sort of way; as if to prove I could have done it better if … Countless excuses to be less than what I really am. Last week I happily and joyfully celebrated my 38th birthday … there’s nothing like a birthday to get all deep and introspective. So this is what I know. I am an attractive, extremely opinionated and some what loud, single mum of three…. Continue reading →

Back on the block … again

Back on the block … again

So … a few milliseconds past the 35 year mark and I find myself back in the social experiment more popularly known as dating. Senora I won’t get into the Mexican style soap opera drama of how just yet but suffice to say he lied, he cheated and when all was said and done I won the kids and dogs. Now I must be honest about this … I could take the knocks when I was younger, slimmer, blissfully ignorant and full of that youthful exuberance you pine for as they, the young bloods, drift… Continue reading →

My Brother’s Wedding

My Brother’s Wedding

It was my brothers wedding Saturday. I looked fab (oh yes I did) and had the killer heels to match. We went to pick up the bride and in my lofty position of master time keeper I tottered over to the bride’s driver to inform him the bridal party would be exiting the house in five. This was her day and he absolutely needed to be ready. And as I tottered over ….I fell down. I’d like to say there was some grace to it but sadly there was none. I crashed to my mother’s… Continue reading →
