Well tomorrow I was meant to go to the gym. But the weathers supposed to be awful. So I doubt I will go.

My PA will be here at 9 AM. I think I’ll have her just do some housework. My house needs a good cleaning.

I was going to opt to get a taxi down to the gym, but well, if I did, I’d be worried we wouldn’t get one home again. If the weather was really bad in the morning, there’s a possibility we may not even be able to get one to take us there either.

I do need to get my money out of the ATM. But I guess that can wait until Saturday morning. Hoping the weather will have picked up by then.

My PA’S boss is coming out to us tomorrow too. She wants to do an evaluation with me, to see how I am liking my service, if I am happy with it, how I am getting along with my new PA etc. I’m not in the least bit worried about that. Everythings going along just fine. I am very happy with how things are going.

So the plan is, get my house spick and span. Have breakfast. And not sure at this point what else we’ll do. Probably just sit and chat. I do hope the four hours will fly by though.

Im also going back volunteering tomorrow. I’m feeling ok mood wise for now at least. I don’t want to miss another day of volunteering asI enjoy it very much. So I will go tomorrow afternoon and do my shift on friendly call as I normally do on Friday afternoons.

A Hello From Bee

Hello Everybody, my name is Bee Halton and some of you might know me from “The Bee Writes…” and “Bee SelfCaring”. Carol Anne introduced me yesterday but I thought I say a couple of words too. Carol Anne was so kind to answer the Proust Questionnaire on my blog so I thought I do the same for “Therapy Bits” and I do that first.

What is “The Proust” Questionnaire?

(Some links in this entry are in German)

In the 19th century, there has been a kind of party game which meant that guests had to answer a list of questions in the host’s guestbook. Marcel Proust answered it twice in his life and after a while, it got accredited to him.

A similar questionnaire is regularly seen on the back of Vanity Fair answered by celebrities. They even launched an interactive version in 2009.  The magazine of the German newspaper FAZ asks celebrities for years to answer it too.

So here are my answers:


Where do you want to live?

Exactly where I live. I was born in the South of Germany but always wanted to live in the Uk and close to the sea. Both are the case where my husband, his children and our rescue greyhound Sherky and I live. I believe North Norfolk is the best place to live in the whole wide world. Well, maybe Glastonbury would do too. And Ireland, of course. And Sweden….. Oh dear… 😉

What is perfect bliss for you?


I am not quite sure there is only one answer to that for me. But one answer certainly is to travel with the husband, his children and our dog wherever the road leads us…

Which fault do you excuse the easiest?

So, who am I otherwise? If only I knew LOL well, I am a blogger and self-care explorer who tries to make a living with a new blog. I have left my day job in March and were looking for a new job ever since. It didn’t work out so I decided to make my passion “blogging” and “self-care exploring” my new career. I am currently building up a page that leads to my mug shop, to my stock photos as well as a new blog that concentrates on easy and affordable self-care. Let’s see where that leads.

And I am also a wife, step-mum, rescue greyhound mum, poetess and a European immigrant to the UK. I might be more than one but I will be exploring this idea more in debt in further posts for Carol Anne and all the others.  I might be a writer, am definitely a spiritual person and I love to make the people around me happy. And I am looking forward to getting to know you all!!!

Sorted out nitros food query

So I rang the vets. Remember I said I was going to ask if they will take payment for dog food over the phone? Well they do. Thank god! Now I don’t have to give my visa debit card to mom, I can just ring them and buy nitros food over the phone! Yay! Problem solved! And nitro wont starve hahaha! Not that he would anyway, I’d never let him starve! I love him too much to see him be without food! So anyway, on Thursday morning I can now buy his food, and then my mom can collect it for me on Thursday afternoon when she’s out grocery shopping. I’m very pleased, ha, easily pleased aren’t I? This is good news though! I love having a visa debit card. It makes things so much simpler. Mostly I pay for everything with it nowadays. Its either do that, or else use my 24 hour online phone banking for paying bills etc. I love that too. I don’t love the bank charges though that I have to pay every 3 months. But anyway. Everything worked out in the end. And Nitro will have his monthly bag of food on Thursday.

I love our fuzzy slippers! They’re so cosy!

I just love wearing them to keep my toes warm!

I always take my shoes and socks off right away when I come in, and throw on my comfy cosy fuzzy wuzzy slippers!

Or my slipper socks, which are also fuzzy!

Its magic! Makes me feel just amazing when my feet feel warm!

Do you have comfy slippers? Or slipper socks? Do you wear them often? In bed?

I wear my slipper socks in bed, too! I don’t care if they collect dog hair from nitro!

😛 I love them!
