I hope the Easter Bunny was good to you! Caden Bryce, Regan, Erin and I were all very spoiled.

Although because of Caden Bryce's peanut allergy, the Easter Bunny goes very light on the chocolate for him, and a bit heavy on the Lego and books. 😉

Regan, Erin and I also received books (and some alcohol - naughty Easter Bunny!), but we definitely got our fair share of chocolate too!

I looked at the topic for today and thought 'oh, that should be quite easy' but then... well how do I narrow down my likes to 10? And I don't like thinking of things I don't like so boo!

Likes
Green Day - they've been my favourite band since I was a teenager. I feel in love with Basket Case the first time I ever heard it and... just love!
Enya - My parents used to foster children and they had a girl who was mad about Enya. I heard her music when I was young and love the places it took me. Still do. Even if Regan calls it 'plinky plonky crap' LOL
Sex - oh, don't look at me like that. Sex is great!
Cross-stitch - The ability to take a blank canvas and some thread and make a picture never fails to make me feel amazing. I'm literally making something out of nothing!
Reading - I am a voracious reader and if I'm not cross-stitching, chances are I've got my nose in a book. My favourite genres are fantasy, horror and sci-fi but I'll read pretty much anything.
Tarot - I've been reading tarot since my late teens - 20 or so years now - and I love it's ability to help me focus and use my subconscious to solve problems that I don't know I'm working through.
Ancient Egypt - I have no idea what it is about Ancient Egypt and the mythology but it absolutely fascinates me.
Starbucks - I'm a coffee fiend and Starbucks is my supplier of my addiction.
Dolphins - Beautiful, intelligent, amazing animals. Basically.
Corsets - I love how they look, both on me and on other women, very sexy. And I love how powerful and sexy they make me feel when wearing them. It's a very shallow enjoyment and I'm perfectly happy to admit it.

Dislikes
Inequality - At the most base level, all people are people and should have the same rights. Simple as.
Hypersexualisation of pop music - yes, I know that 'sex sells', and yes music has ALWAYS been sex & drugs & rock 'n roll and yes, it was like it when I was younger. But it was more... it was nowhere near as in your face
Photoshopping of models - When she was 9, Regan asked to go on a diet because she didn't look like the pictures in magazines. She was NINE. It angers me that media has this insistence that women look a certain way when in reality... we don't!
Misunderstanding of BDSM - It's nothing like certain books/films would have you believe and its not abuse! It's control and trust and pleasure and pain and consensual and fun
The smell of cabbage cooking *wrinkles nose* blech
Mushrooms They're just gross, sorry. Horrible texture, nasty taste and they look weird!
Grey pubes TMI maybe, and I know it's my age - I'm getting a few grey hairs which in general don't both me but my pubic hair going grey is just horrible!
Chelsea FC losing a match I support Chelsea, it makes me sad
The tory government. Don't get me started!
Having to rip out stitches You've been knitting/stitching along merrily only to realise you've screwed up somewhere along the way and have to undo hours of work :(

Also known as 'Jade Rachel starts that 30 day meme that's doing the rounds' because it looks interesting, and who doesn't like talking about themselves?
haha

I've also added a few people from a recent friending meme and this seems like a good way to introduce them to me, my life and my journal



Some basic things about myself?

My name is Jade Rachel, I'm 37, I'm Welsh and I live in London with my wife [personal profile] imagineireann and my children [personal profile] reganoutloud and Caden Bryce.

If I throw out a bunch of random adjectives: Scorpio, snake, black-haired, green-eyed, tattooed, pierced, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, wife, widow, lesbian, wiccan, hippy, geek, goth, ravenclaw.

I love life. I love sex. I'm a Dominant and have a submissive named c - although, I don't talk about her a lot.

My favourite music is Green Day, Enigma, Enya.
My favourite movies are Dirty Dancing, Top Gun and Lord Of The Rings

I'm quite crafty and enjoy cross-stitch and knitting. I love to draw and take photos. I'm an avid reader of fantasy, horror and science-fiction. I read tarot. I'm fascinated by Ancient Egypt.

Sadly, I also cannot promise that I blog about a lot - or any - of this. But it gives you a quick overview of who I am and what I like :)

My beautiful wife whisked me away on a surprise 10 day holiday to Italy for an early anniversary present. We had an amazing time and there are no words that express how grateful I am to have Erin in my life

I am now beginning the process of catching up on everything - both on and offline. So tell me, friends, what have I missed? What have you been up to over the last week?

I've noticed a few people posting this one over the last day or so, and decided to be a complete sheep and join in. It's been fun seeing other peoples answers so it only seems right to share mine.

What do I always have in my bag?

Makeup Eyeliner, lipgloss, handcream and moisturiser at a minimum. Sometimes mascara, foundation, eyeshadow. It all depends on the look of the day

Plasters Or band aids, as Americans call them. I have a five year old, they're pretty essential. Also for those moments when your shoes rub your heel or you break a nail

Portable phone charger An Anker Astro E1 5200mAh Ultra Compact Portable Charger, if you really want to know

Mints Bad breath isn't welcome in any situation, so I've always got either gum or mints

Tissues I mentioned a five year old... And, well, you never want to be without a tissue when you can feel a sneeze coming on!

I didn't really want to mention wallet, oyster card, keys, phone etc because they're all very obvious

It is more than halfway through January, and I still haven’t come up with any concrete New Year’s resolutions. I guess at this point it is a little late. My one real goal, to lose weight, is off to a bad start too. And, really, all of this makes me more than a little sad.

I’ve been thinking that I’m having trouble coming up with resolutions because I don’t know what I want or what I want to become. So, my plan for 2014 is to explore what I want to do and what I don’t want to do.

As the mother of a toddler and a teenager, there are a lot of things I have to do. I have no choice but to look after my son and daughter as best I can. I need to care for them and try to teach him all those useful things they need to know. (Caden Bryce is a stubborn little guy though, and we are at an impasse with regards to potty training.) They take up a lot of my time, and a lot of my mental energy. Really, being a mom of two is a lot more work that I ever thought it would be, and I didn’t think I was under any illusions.

With the little time I have left to myself, I need to work on fitting in some self exploration among the dishes, laundry, research work and crafting. Who am I now that I am not just me? What do I want out of life? What goals do I want to achieve? Do I still feel the call to be a writer? Is it more or less important than spending my time knitting or cross stitching (both of which I love a great deal)? What do I really feel about my weight? About my shyness? About how and where we live? Are there things I am doing because I think I should? What should I stop doing because it doesn’t bring me joy? What should I start doing?

All of these questions need to be answered for me to find peace with myself.
