So today I bought myself a one of a kind, elegant and vintage cake stand made by my one and only artistic and brilliant friend Becks. How cool is this?

Cannot wait to have an opportunity to bake some delicious goodies and showcase them on that :)

Heres a couple more pics:

Becks awesome stands and my mate Jon making himself comfortable on a deck chair as we listened to the brass band play their version of Lady Gaga

I also got to see my gorgeous niece today:

Ellie is growing up so fast. Today she showed us she had learnt how to do a high five. Sooooooo cute and when you ask her how big is Ellie, she opens her arms really wide. I just wish she would learn how to smile for the camera lol. My niece is like posh spice in the smile department hehe

The new Mantra I have been trying to help ease me back into meditation translates as the below:


Gayatri Mantra

Om Bhur Buvaha Svaha
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo Yonaha Prachodayath

Gayatri Mantra English Translation

O Supreme Creator, Thou art the giver of life, the remover of pain and sorrow and the bestower of happiness; O Creator of the Universe, may we receive Thy supreme sin-destroying light; may Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.

Strange dreams and my new fish

So in an attempt to get my energies back under control and try forgive I am trying to restart doing yoga in my life - I used to do it everyday at University and it did do me the world of good.  I used to be a hell of a lot more bendy too!

I am also trying to start meditating daily again. It was suggested to me to check out Sai Baba and try some chanting. If you don't know who Sai Baba is/was - he is the incarnation of a hindu deity. The second incarnation has recently passed but a new one will be born I am told.

I have been doing this 2 days now and I had a very vivid dream last night but all I can remember is there being this amazing big and beautiful full moon. I had a scout around on the tinterweb and it seems to indication intuition and change. So that kind of fits with what I am trying to achieve which is good. Hey my subconscious is on board!!!!

My lovely dad took me down to the pet shop and I now have some more fish. Since losing bob a few weeks ago Eddie has just been so lonely and hiding in the corner. So now I have 2 more oranda's which one is just white and the other is white and orange. I also treated myself to a black moor. I have wanted one for ages. He's so beautiful and a little bit bigger. He is almost Eddies size.

I have named my new fish - Sheldor, Penny and Evil Wil Wheaton. Yes after characters in one of my fave shows - the Big Bang Theory. Also a nod to Wil Wheaton - who's blog and you tube stuff I am a keen follower of and have been for years. Heres some pics - sorry for the slight blurriness - my fish are not easy to get a clear shot on account of the moment lol

Since my oven blew up and I have been waiting for the part to come, I have had to eat a lot of non-kosher SW food. Last week lovely Helen and Andy fixed my oven. Honestly you never realise how much you use something until it dies on you!!!! I use my oven a lot! Anyway now its back and this week I am back on track and 4 pounds down!
