... what's in a name ... or what's in YOUR name ?

.. the weirdest things pop into my head when i'm vacuuming ...  for some reason my middle name did today and i had an 'ephiphany'!

my mother always curses calling me Deborah because it means 'bee' or busy and I do seem to never stop doing things... but then today it all came to me (when I was vacuuming) why they used Frances for my middle name ... because I love all things from FRANCE !!! ahhhh...  well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it...

... what's in your name ???  do tell...

Deborah ...(bee)

Frances !

Enable or disable the translation bar

  1. Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Show advanced settings.

feel good day ...

i heard on the radio today, that it was supposed to be Blue Monday - {supposedly the worst day of the year, according to some research/test that has been done}  that is so stupid ... why do they keep targeting Monday as a bad day and WHEN? will people realise that every single day counts (no matter where it is in the week)!

... just 2 things ...

1.  don't listen to the media too much - they usually get it wrong and report more BAD stuff than good which I find completely annoying.

2.  make the most of every day

... and a few quotes to reinforce it all x
