Total relaxation

May 8th, 2014

I recently treated myself to a thai massage Newcastle. I am not a person that welcomes people touching me so my expectations from this massage were not very high. From the moment I laid on the massage table I was put at ease by the soft relaxing music and the smell of lavender from a burning candle. The massage therapist was excellent and was very understanding about my dislike of being touched by others. Very quickly she put me at ease and was working her magic. I was so relaxed and in a state of bliss that I did not realize that the massage was over. I laid on the table for ten minutes relishing in the trance the therapist had helped my achieve. I was brought back to reality by the cleaning staff that entered the room to clean it prior to the next persons arrival. What an experience!

A Weird, Strange, Fantastic Experience

April 8th, 2014

Recently my girlfriend won a couples day at the spa during a silent auction at her work. She was very excited, however I was a little timid. I have never been to the spa, I didn’t know what to really expect. When we got there the receptionist showed us to separate locker rooms where we were suppose to strip and put on robes. We meant back up together in a small room with massage tables. First on the days plans was a thai massage Bristol. Two women came in one tall and thin while the other was average height but bulky. She was quiet scary looking, she looked as if she could be a women body builder. Of course I got the viking of a women. It was strange having a women who wasn’t my girlfriend touching my body. The thought quickly vanished though as her magical fingers touched my back.

Visiting the Grandparents

April 7th, 2014

When I got to my grandparents’ house this afternoon, everything was the same as it usually is when I drive down for a visit. My grandmother had cleaned and cooked a ridiculously early dinner, despite the fact that I told her I was eating lunch on the way. She always thinks I’m starving. My granddad was watching a baseball game with the volume cranked up insanely high. I’m pretty sure he needs new digital hearing aids.

The weird 4pm dinner was fine and everything has been fine so far. My granddad went back to his loud sports and my grandmother complained about how loud the TV was. He didn’t seem to hear her. Maybe he does it on purpose. We’re going shopping tomorrow. Not only does my grandmother always think I’m starving, she also seems to think I need new clothes. Who am I to argue with new clothes?

That Short and Snappy Tone

April 2nd, 2014

There is a very good reason why I will never choose reiki Auckland for restorative health purposes. And this is the reason: When my teacher provided me with a definition of it, she spat the words out in a cocky, arrogant way meant to convey how superior she was to me on account of the fact that she knew something I didn’t. (Her tone was short and snappy, for those who need adjectives to understand things.) From that moment on, I swore to stay as far away from natural healing as possible. To stay well these days, I generally run. Keeps my mind and body in order and alive. Once-when I went jogging up 5th avenue-I saw my teacher walking towards me with a bag of fresh produce tucked safely under her arm. I made sure not to make eye contact.

I’ve discovered my green thumb, kind of

April 1st, 2014

I have always had a terrible time at being able to plant things. I was not even able to successfully plant flowers in school, much less plant them when I got older. However, one day upon searching for the perfect item to make my new home look like it housed someone with gardening skills, I came across a wonderful item. Instant hedging was basically the answer to my lifelong failure at being able to plant things. I was able to buy items and set them up in my yard to at least give off the impression that I was able to grow things. This made me feel better and after a few years I was actually able to begin planting things that grew. I will always be thankful for the inspiration this type of instant gardening item gave me. However, be aware that things which grow outside don’t do well in the winter. I sure didn’t realize that.

Make a difference in how your room looks

February 20th, 2014

So I just finished mounting the last screw on my window frame for my new blinds. These are not just any ordinary blinds though. They are my new shutter blinds Manchester, or also known as a plantation shutter.
Mine are made from hardwood although a lot of them recently are being mass produced from different material for production reasons.

These new blinds can completely cut out all light and air flow through the window into the room if I choose to close them that way. The only thing is that unlike traditional blinds these cannot be lifted or pulled out.
Here is the test. I turn the knob rotating it to close the blinds and see how well my installation went. With a smile on my face the blinds close completely cutting out all light and air as intended in the first place.
With proper installation I would definitely recommend these blinds to friends and family.

Beachy Fun!

February 2nd, 2014

This summer was beautiful and I decided to take my niece and nephews to the beach. The backseat of my truck was filled with squeals and generally happy kiddie noises. As soon as I parked, I had to hold them back as we gathered our beach supplies. As we trudged through the sand, they pushed toward the shore. They plopped down on the beach and started making silica sand sculptures with their shovels and buckets. My niece, small as she is, was determined to do everything by herself, pushing her brothers away whenever they would try to help. She crafted a small little baby castle. It barely resembled the real thing, but she was so proud of it. Shouting “Auntie, look!” over and over as she patted the sand into shapes. It was adorable. The boys worked together to build a sand castle, but mostly just smashed the sand as soon as it looked like anything. We had a ton of fun that day. Have to do it next year.

My Very Vexing Vacation

January 18th, 2014

Have you ever had a disappointing vacation? Just admit it – you probably have. My most disappointing and vexing vacation occurred while visiting Cancun, Mexico. Upon passing the many uk hotels, on the noisy trip to the beach, I knew this trip would end up being a major disappointment. It was. From my arrival at the airport to waking up late on the day of departure nothing went right. I mean nothing went right. The absolute worst event happened when someone loudly knocked on my door at 3 a.m. I still don’t know what would have happened if I would have inadvertently opened my door that night. What did happen was the beginning of insomnia that lasted the entire trip. Sleepless nights make for uneventful and boring days. In retrospect, I could have had a better attitude. After all the weather cooperated! I guess some vacations are just meant to be a disaster.

Please feel free to tell me about your “very vexing vacation story”

Till next time :)
