House Keeping & An Inspiring Website

House Keeping
The reason for this blog is to map Milly's journey from accountant to adventurer to children's author.
Milly realised that there is no place for negative posts on this blog. 
The purpose of the blog is to encourage other people to follow their dreams, and to not be frightened to try.
So, in keeping with the spirit of the blog, Milly has deleted the "Don't make yourself vulnerable" and "Over reaction" blogs (Milly would like to thank Anon for their comment, and she hopes you will understand why she has deleted these blogs)

As Big G pointed out to Milly, an outcome is driven by
The thing which we all can control is our REACTION - Forget the rest

And why let someone else control how you feel? Don't.

Thank goodness for good friends and common sense!!!!

Inspiring Website
Milly has found the most wonderful website.
It's a website which encourages people to perform acts of kindness - whether it is someone you know or a perfect stranger! Here's the link.
Milly has been reading the stories, and the amazing things people have been doing.
Milly has found the whole experience truly inspiring so much so that she is on a multitude of happy clouds at the moment!

Just think, if everyone in the world performed only one kind act each day, what a wonderful world this would be!

Roald Dahl - Best Cure For Getting Back On Happy Cloud

Milly has found a great cure for getting back her back on the happy cloud - Roald Dahl books.


Her favourite read so far has been Esio Trot, and The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me.
They are really quick to read (40 minutes) and put you in a good mood immediately.

Milly is now about to read George's Marvellous Medicine, and is super excited.

Best thing about the books, is that she has still been able to budget
(Milly found this really cool website where you can buy books at a fraction of the cost e.g. Milly bought 10 Roald Dahl books for £15!
Milly even looked into their business model to understand why they could sell books so cheaply.
So try out  The Book People

Happy reading & happy generating positive vibes!

The Case of The Multiplying Food Babies

Have you ever seen Gremlins the movie?
You know the one about the uber cute furry animals, who if you get them wet they multiply into horrible ugly critters?

Well Milly's finding her food babies are doing just that - They are multiplying!

When Milly was out for dinner, after her yummy indian, she really did look as if she was 5 months pregnant.
In fact at one point, Milly was going to admit to being pregnant so that she could walk home without having to try and suck in her belly.
Have you ever tried to walk with your belly sucked in for more than 10 minutes?! It's hard work!!!

Today was no better, she nearly got her dress stuck over her head. Prince Charming wasn't even around to help her put it on.

To cap it all off, Milly keeps ponging in bed which is doing untold damage to the ozone layer.

Poor Prince Charming, so much for romance!

So tomorrow Milly will:

  • Go to the gym and run on that treadmill
  • Plan her exercise routine for the next month


For all you lovely readers, Milly will be away on holiday for the next couple of days.
Milly is off to see her mum - So no doubt lots of eating as is the case at mum's house.
So have a fabulous weekend, and chat soon.

PS Message to The Queen - Have a fabuloso Jubilee Maam!
