I'm linking up with Posie Patchwork   in her AEIOU party - I'll let her explain shall I?
Greetings all,
Welcome to this month's AEIOU: a mid-month-link-party of self-belief, improvement, acceptance, love & learning!!  It's a get together to celebrate life's highlights.  Your AEIOU might go a little something like this . . . 

Awesome – something you baked/ created/ photographed/ a bargain you found
Exciting – share your news/ event/ holiday/ a gorgeous butterflies-in-tummy moment
Interesting – teach us information/ discovery/ facts/ a chance to show off your quirky side
Opportunity – embrace the unknown/ put yourself out there/ show off a new experience
Understanding – learning to appreciate/ forgive/ love/ unleash what helps you grow
. . . you might like to do a full AEIOU or just one or two particular themes . . 
A -  I made cookies for the kindy bake sale and I think they looked quite presentable. 

We spent a wonderful day out with friends. It was truly awesome.

E - We have decided to go away for Christmas this year. I can't go into too many details but suffice to say it's been a long time coming.
I - This month I learnt that I am (possibly) too smart for my therapist. Oh and it's the month I found out I actually needed to see one.

O - This is the month that I am going to enter a writing competition. It's going to be a bigger step than writing poetry as it will be an adaptation of a fairytale. I'm looking forward to the challenge.
U - Recently I came to the understanding that my relationship with my mum has become richer and more real since I realised (a bit late) that I need to share with her the way I would with my friends. I don't have to look after her or protect her from what I think or do.  We are both benefiting from my realising this... Love you Mom xx


  1. Oh thank you so much for joining in!! Yes, mums like to know details, i always shared tonnes with my mummy, my sister didn't - she had things to hide, yet pulled the wool over her eyes & acted like the perfect daughter, when i gave mum nothing to worry about. Funnily enough, once i let go of the fact mum was blind to anything she could possibly do was wrong, it certainly reduced my stress about trying & to continue just being me. I'm a daddy's girl anyway.
    Enjoy your Christmas break & therapy?? Blogging as therapy helps, i started AEIOU as i could have been a psychologist when i was 21 - what the hell would i have known?? We're often smarter than therapists but they have a way of making us see things, as most often, we're our own worst enemy. Love Posie

    1. This blog started as my therapy but it hasn't quite got to the point of getting it all out there.

      Thanks so much for hosting AEIOU and for thinking up such an awesome meme/linky :D

  2. You are amazing. What an awesome project. And I can't wait to hear more about your writing.
    P.S. As a therapist...my clients are frequently smarter than me. And I work with kids. :)

    1. Thank you Tina, your comments always make me smile and feel loved x


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I try to reply to as many as I can either here or by email. <3 LJx
