So the day after the UK Asexuality Conference, I went to London Aquarium with my friend and had a fabulous time. I find the aquarium is so very peaceful and relaxing and at one with my soul, love it so much. A great place to chill.
Photos of Chestnut looking cute after her operation at the end of June, looking remarkably well, thank goodness xx She is my bestest friend and I love her implicitly. xx
These photos say a thousands words. Have you ever seen such a beautiful baby girl! She is 4, but will always be my baby girl forever! I miss her as she lives with my parents now because Angel has diabetes and I can’t inject her but my parents can. I try not to dwell on this! Everything is meant to happen for a reason.
Until next time, embrace your quirky and write soon
Sandra xx Love from me and Chestnut (and Angel) xx
These photos were taken at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, UK, for my birthday! On the 24th of April, and a little over a month later I am posting them for you to admire. I love the rich and vibrant colours in these photos, what do you think?
Well today (24th of April), I get to be 21 again. See I am a huge believer in mindset being the key to success and happiness and that we get to choose:
Our mindset age.
The way we live our life.
Our own happiness.
And ultimately everything that comes from us.
For the past few years I have been getting younger in mindset and last year I decided to be 21 in mindset, and had my 21st mindset birthday in Disneyland Paris! I also had a Toy Story decorated room which made me super excited! I miss that place so much and really wished I could be back there again, it was at one with my soul and I felt totally at peace there. Lights, camera, action, noise – that makes me feel peaceful and incredibly happy, I like being different to everyone else and I enjoy noise and that type of environment. Actually it was very peaceful around the lake when walking back to my hotel on site at night. It was fabulous to be out at night and experiencing the reflection of the lights on the water and being able to walk on my own feeling very safe and happy, and that everyone there was singing from the same hymn sheet and just wanted to enjoy life and be happy and experience the magic, beauty, and wonder of it all.
If you missed my video last year of my highlights, here it is again!
For the previous two years prior to the last – so 2015/2016, I was 23 in mindset age, so I skipped a year, or rather I made a conscious decision to be 23 years for 2 years on the trot. I considered being 22 this year, but for now, I am very happy to stick with my 21st mindset that works so well for me. Oh and yes, in case you were wondering, I mostly get attracted to much younger in birth certificate age guys, in their 20s, and as one of my blogging friends Ralph has found a much younger true love and is going to be married soon, there is hope for me to find my asexual true love, but right now I am happy being single and living life to the max, whatever happens! Oh, and I don’t like marriage for me. I really am keen on my single life right now, just I am super romantic – but as I have been on more self-dates lately and got plenty to do, I am happy!
If you missed my video from Disneyland Paris 2014 trip of the elephant in the Rainforest Cafe, here it is again.
There is so much useful and helpful advice out there about not putting all your in one basket, but to get anything done it often requires focus on one thing at a time, (time blocking), to maximise productivity. So for that moment in time, you could say that it is good to put all of your eggs in that one basket. What do you think, would you agree or disagree, and why?
Have a Quirky Easter and if you don’t celebrate it, well, you could use it as another reason to have some more chocolate!! Yummy! Or a day out with the family – or just to say “Happy Easter” to those who do!
I have two wheat free, gluten free, yeast free, and every other allergen to me free, Easter Eggs! Thanks to my mum. (Love you mum xx)
