Off with the Nose..

DSC_0073When I was about 5 or 6 a play house fell on my nose, I sat on the window bit.. nothing was done, no doctors or hospital check up because people thought I was ok..

1st picture taken just after surgery Wed 29, bottom one taken today I my apartment..

I have done this alone, came to Budapest alone, renting an apartment alone and will do sightseeing alone.. a big thing for me esp having to walk around with a cast on my nose..

I went through Linda Briggs who has had surgery herself and will only work with the best surgeons, much better to do it that way instead of just looking and taking that chance.. The surgeon was a lovely man.. You also have pre op test.. blood, chest xray and ECG..

Over the year. my nose was not normal it had a dent and was slightly crooked.. and did not go with the structure of my face.

I was always the same people could not see what I could and did bother me, so I made up my mind to have it done..

I have been working a lot on myself issues having EFT and counscelling and thought, well heal on the inside and have a nice nnew noDSC09007

Welcome Ronnie

How strange is life.. I joked to my mum about my grandson when he is born.. no chance of a Ronald, that was my dads name and as his was a nasty piece of work, I cant say I liked his name lol.. anyway.. my mother wished Rueban could be in the name, as Ronnie was born on my granddads birthday..

Yes he is called Ronnie, after his granddad Ronnie on my son-inlaw.. but what made my day is Ronnie Reuban Alfred.. I never in my life imagined what happy emotions you can have by having my granddads name in his name.. I cannot even begin to explain that feeling..

So here is Ronnie with his big sister.. Born 3rd Sept 7lb.14 oz and slightly over due.. and after his sister born 8 weeks early, we all thought he would arrive early..

Play My Guitar

I wanted to try to get a good shot of someone playing a guitar, I had the idea of low light and a bit of a long exposure, which I am quite happy with.

A nice bit of Ciabatta

I now seem to have my ciabatta down to a ‘T’ so to speak.. last time I actually had the wholes, but, none the less, this bread for me, is now right, so much so, I can just go and do the recipe without having to read instructions…

It is lovely slightly toasted, the bread seems very light and airy, and added with some nice extra virgin olive oil, tomato and small red onions.. so yummy!

Apple Piev- Halogen Oven

At last, I have now made the perfect pastry for my apple pie as well as my flans.

When rolling the pastry out, it feels kind of silky smooth, it rolls very well, compared to how it use to be. Of course I will now use a machine to mix everything, I feel like cheating lol, but, needs must these days.

I used granny smith apples, normally I use Bramleys but could not get any.

The photographs are different colours, first two were RAW files, then 2nd two were jpg.. and too tired today to do a proper edit, lazy I know.. lol..

Another Tarot..

I think I prefer tarot, as it gives more info that lenormand, but I also do feel they would make a good set to work together…

P1070670 copy


lack of sacrifice, unwilling to make any effort in areas of your life, also suspension in your life, you are hanging there, what way should I go, but although this is in the present it will start to pass out of your life.. it is time to make decsions instead of putting them off, as it is not good hoping things will sort themselves out, you have got to do it. in relationship, it seems you are happy to wait around, and not put much effort into it.. there is a time coming that you need to make a decision with your current relationship. You have been acting in a selfish and an arrogant manner, which is causing more problems, becuase you are only thinking of you..

Immediate influence or crossing

You have tried with areas in your life, but, sadly things have not gone as they should, which has bought frustration, disappointment with the lack of success and progress.. lack of ambition and also doing work that is just not you, does not help with this situation, trying the same work when, it just will not happen, no matter how much you try. a feeling of dissillusiionment seems to be in a few areas of your life right now..

goal or destiny..

there is a part of you that is needing a mother figure.. someone that you can connect with on an emotional level.. one that helps you feel secure.. someone that has solutions to any problems that you are having.. as this is a goal or destiny reading, it seems that there is this real want for this, and every chance of someone of this energy appearing in your life.. a mature lady, also, there is a need for you to bring her energy into you, a need to empathise with others, and show true compassion, but in a way, that you actually understand and not just do the actions… there may be a time when you need to turn inward and explore your emotions, and take control of you, and not blame everyone around you in any situation.

distant past foundation – how you got to where you are now.. what was the causes.. events and influences.. the dreaded tower..

The tower is about turmoil.. trying to understand how you could of been so wrong with your life, but in your life, you have created so much of the tower, but also, there have been sleepless nights, depression, grief, anger, confrontation, but non of what you have done has been of any benefit to you.. work has not been as it should relationship from the beginning was out of balance and was not built on a solid foundation.. you need to look at your life now from the recent events of the last few weeks, and see what is staring at you in the face, the turmoil you have experienced, is your own doing.. and the destruction with it… but once you hit rock bottom the only way is up, it may not be as you want it now, but in time, you life if you learn from it now, you will or should not make the same mistakes as before.. relationships breaking down, because of actions and reactions, which has come from own doing… painful experiences, the tower has fallen now, and at the moment from the past to now, nothing can be rebuilt, emotions running very raw… accepting what is done is done.. and to stop the ego that is also behind everything, basically the tower has bought to you areas in your life that you can no longer live like it..

recent past events – passed or just passing..

Embracing change, but was that change positive or negative, was it worth it.. was the grass greener? you were in a position of strength of what and where happens around you.. and there were opportunities around you, but, these were more of a negative nature with a negative outcome.. dreams of what you want, and how you wanted to get it, was not the right way, you should use your intuition to look for your dreams.. this card also encourages to think in terms of where you want to travel, when I say that, it could be of the mind, life, work etc…

future influence

The influence is more about you, influencing yourself with your own thoughts and perspectives and past and recent events. you have got yourself into thinking there is no way out, even though, you thought there was a way out, it was not the right one, or the right way to do it, so now, as where you stand now, you have got yourself into a pickle so to speak, you cannot see anyway forward even though, the swords around you are not fully enclosing you.. you need to look or at least try and look at things from a different angle and not keep down the same line of being a victim and blaming others, all this does is keep your blinded to not seeing any way out.. what ever decisions you make now are going to affect your future and you need to find a way to release from being blinded and binding in.. too many things in your head also, is blocking you seeing the way forward.. You are not powerless too make changes even thou it seems and feels like you have boxed yourself into a corner.. there is a way out.. make choices and do not harp back to the past and repeat the same things..

the questioner. present position or attitude. lovers reversed

at the moment it seems you are avoiding responsibility for the consequences of your own actions, you made a decision that was benefit for you, purely on desire and instant gratification, now you are trying to lay the blame on others, this ties in with the above card too.. the blame game.. there may not be a choice to even try to make things better or amends, which means you will have to let go and move on, or if things can be worked out, are you prepared to change your life on many levels. a relationship has quite a bit of imbalance, your connection is not connecting or out of balance and or harmony. Feelings are not mutual. frustrations in love and marriage and untrustworthyness..


environmental factors – influence on other people or others who have an influence on you..

I would say the knight of wands is yourself, act first, think later, impatient, impulsive, rush into things at times without considering others or even thinking of what if, and the consequences or outcome of these actions.. this creates a negative cycle of any long term success.. at times, there can be agressive behaviour..

inner emotions – inner hopes, fears, desires etc..

At the moment, the cards is saying your hands are tied, but this is because of your actions, you yourself have bounded your hands together.. many thoughts in your head, where at the moment you are working yourself up into stress and more stress, anxious, it is very easy for you to get worked up, which then creates situations not to your benefit because of tempers etc.. but, what is needed is to get a balance within you, your inner emotions and start to look at what you are doing, even if there is no way of repair.. and believe things will be ok whatever the outcome or future..

Final result..

#due to events, there will be a time when you will not want to make any commitments or promissies as you will not be able to keep them.. it will become too much.. you will find yourself on edge and also defensive.. things will need to be let to..

problems, obstacles, things to overcome, which will all need a lot of work on..
