Happy Mother's Day 2014

I hope all you Mums all over the world are being spoilt-rotten for a change.

I've been having a fab day with my son, my Funky Geek. 

Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers, Mother-to-be, Mothers whose prayers will be answered soon, Mothers whose children have died before them, God-Mothers, Step-Mothers, Aunt-Mothers, Grand-Mothers, Friend-Mothers, our Mothers that are no longer with us & not forgetting Dads who act as a mother figure!

It really does takes a village to raise a child, so thank you to all the mothers who have helped, in one way or the other, to raise mine!

Come tomorrow, it's business as usual!

International Day of Happiness 2014

Wow I never even knew such a day existed

Happy New Year all. I know am a tad bit late as it is also the first day of Spring

But I am back on track to blogging regularly again. Just been real busy behind the scenes. Launched my own handmade line of products last year. So I hope I am forgiven

To keep you all sweet and happy, this song is dedicated to all my readers

It really doesn't get any better than this.

So here are my Top 5 ultimate Happy states of mind ;-)

1. Just being alive for which I thank God always
2. My son ~ Funky Geek
3. My close friends & family who have stuck with me through the good times & the bad
4.a. The 'Happy' musical video ~ Pharrell Williams
4.b.. Pharrell William's collaboration with the United Nations (UN) aptly dubbed '24 hours of happiness'
5. In pursuit of happiness film featuring Will Smith

Happy International Day of Happiness

Happy Women's International Day 8th March 2013 ~ We are a force to reckon with!

Me so so happy today as the whole world is celebrating us.!!!! Yaay. It's like our birthdays all over again, a second celebration of life. Am so proud to be a woman and a mother (to Funky Geek) too. So I will say I am already blessed. Am also black and proud ~ so am shouting it out loud!

I particularly love this image below from the United Nations Foundation which kinda sums it all up for me. 

Touches my heart. We should all try our best to give back and help people in unfortunate circumstances. A little, seriously,  does go a very very long way.

All mothers in, my eyes, ARE SUPER MUMS.

Enjoy your day today all women of the world and also on this coming Mothering Sunday too! It's a double Celebration

Secondary School Offer In for Sep 2013! Yaay!!

Oh I don't know about the rest of you but we (being Funky Geek and I) received our offer of Secondary School. And I must say we were still pretty pleased being our 2nd choice. I kinda knew the 1st choice was a long shot, so the second place was a very close contender

So it's like soon it'll be summer, then September will be here. And then what? Am I ready to let go? Loosen the Apron strings a tad bit? So many decisions to make. Is it like this for so many parents whose child/children will be starting Secondary School in September?

A whole new chapter in Funky geek's life is about to open.

But before that begins, we've been going through the last of everything in Year 6 since Sep 2012. So we've done last Autumnbury, Fireworks Night, Christmas Play & Christmas Service.  Am sure I've missed some out already. Soon it'll be last footie match, last parent's day, last athletics competition, last sports Day, last Cake stall, last Midsummer Revels. Gosh.

Exhaling still ........

Now I will soon be facing new (what should I call them) challenges? too obvious! Sounds tasking. New ... experiences that life will throw at me. Now that's better!

So it's Valentine's Day 2013

Today's Google Doodle to commemorate Valentine's day is different. A mix of love with a playground attraction. Today mark's the 154th birthday of George Washington Gale Ferris ~ the inventor of the popular Ferris Wheel'. He was an American engineer

It's interactive so even the kids can play it.I so love it. Pun so intended too! Go on ..... have a go on the 'Ferris Wheel'. Love is in the air. LOL

Here's sending you all loads of Geeky Love

Happy Valentines Day everyone.

Maths Masterclass for Primary School kids ... Really?

I don't know if you know but my Funky Geek is a mega Maths Geek. It so so unreal. He reminds me of the guys on Big Bang Theory but with a 'funky twist'. 

we got back yesterday and he was bursting with geekiness saying he has some very good news for me. So he gives me this letter from school and here is what it said .....

He was well chuffed, I was well chuffed. we were both dead chuffed. Cambridge is looking much much nearer! Every little step counts.
