My Goals For 2010

Due to my poor ability to keep my new years resolutions, this year I decided to refer to them as goals... Just like everyone else, I usually also plan to break them, but this year I am giving myself no excuses. After the last couple of horrific months, I have decided that some parts of my life and all of my way of thinking require a huge over-haul.

So here goes.

1. Keep my blog up to date - because I am sure that my two followers want to read all about my life.

2. Create a scrapbook album with one page per month, recording my favourite moments - because I am a sentimental person, and love having things to look back at.

3. Lose 15kg - this one will be hard, but I WILL NOT break it.

4. Quit smoking cigarettes all together - because my body and the earth deserve better.

5. Stop drinking too much - I know my limit, I should just learn to stick to it.

6. Stop having petty arguments with my boyfriend - because we both deserve better.

7. Make more things for my Etsy shop and get around to making my vintage shop - it is something that I love, but some how can never find the time to pursue.

8. Regain my confidence - sometimes even going to the shop for eggs is preceded by a furious mind battle of the pros and cons of being seen in public and having to talk to people.

9. Try and become a little more laid back and carefree - because things don't always happen the way they should and I'm sick of wasting tears on them.

10. Stop being so addicted to Facebook.

I guess I will check back in about a year's time to see how many of my unbreakable goals I have actually broken...

Merry Christmas!






Merry Christmas!
I hope you have wonderful day full of family, friends and laughter, making memories that will last a lifetime.

This is a few little pictures of my offering to the Christmas table this year... Cupcakes :)

I made cream cheese fruit choc chip (I know it's a mouthful, but they are damn yummy!), gingerbread cupcakes, and chocolate choc chip.

Enjoy your day, and remember if you're going to be outside in the lovely sunshine, wear your sunscreen and drink plenty of water!

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy roly, me, oh my, you’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you’re my best friend, I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothin’ that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
There ain’t nothin’ please me more than you

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home

I’ll follow you into the park, through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls, alley ways & pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you

That’s true

We laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night
Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you

And in the sticks we’re running free like it’s only you and me
Geez, you’re something to see.

“Jade?”
“Alexander?”
“Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?”
“I sure do, you came jumping out after me.”
“Well, you fell on the concrete and nearly broke your ass and you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you off to the hospital. Do you remember that?”
“Yes, I do.”
“Well, there’s something I never told you about that night.”
“What didn’t you tell me?”
“While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was going to be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you and I never told you ‘til just now.”
“Now I know.”

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is whenever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you

Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

Ahh, Home
Yes, I am Home
Home is when I’m alone with you.

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Moats & boats & waterfalls & pay phone calls

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you

You.

You are the icing to my cupcake.

be mine.

I was sinking
when you pulled me from the depths
and you were drinking
when we sat down on the the steps
and you said, girl, i've been trying to be
all the things that I swear you can see

now we're waiting
for the next best thing to come
they say I'm crazy
when I mean to be enough
and I keep saying that everything's fine
and you're the one who keeps taking the time
you should know this is no kind of life

so tell me something I don't know
a million miles away
and as you grab your things to go
there's something I should say
lovers, friends and waiting fors
lost out in the fray
would you say goodbye?
would you walk away?

we were driving
and the wind was in your hair
couldn't stop crying
'cause for me it's always there
and I can't stand to hear the sound
of your voice
if she's the girl that you want
that's your choice
ooh,ooh,

maybe we're better off as friends
but if I go now
you know the story has to end
I can't keep playing your songs all the time
waiting here just to hear you on the line
'cause I know you will never be mine
be mine

Dear,

weep for yourself, my man,
you'll never be what is in your heart
weep little lion man,
you're not as brave as you were at the start
rate yourself and rape yourself,
take all the courage you have left
wasted on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head...
