I Don’t Believe It!

Hello friends and thanks for dropping in. I bid you welcome once again to my musings and ramblings and wonder if we could possibly share any like minded thoughts.


Oh, right! It must just be me then….

So, I woke this morning and when I looked at my phone to see the time I saw the date as well.

30th of November, so I did my usual rhyme to answer how many days in the current month.

“Thirty days hath September, April, June and November”

The Changes Continue…

As life improves in ways we might not have ever expected….

Morning friends and thanks for popping in to the world of Magnet here on this relaxing Sunday afternoon.

Apologies for being later on parade than I had anticipated but like I said a few weeks ago, it was time to start doing this all at my own pace and on my own schedule so that I could enjoy continue enjoying writing the blog instead of looking at it as a bit of a chore.

So what is on the cards today? Well if I am honest, not very much.

Life Goes Marching On.

Good morning world and welcome to the weekend. Here again for us all to enjoy as we see fit. Some of us will work, some sleep after a big night out, some gym or run or walk and some will simply get their chores done around the house.

Life goes on.

Saturday will always follow Friday, Sunday will always follow Saturday and Monday will ALWAYS follow Sunday.

It is the way of the world.

Yesterday, I didn’t have an epiphany as such but a couple of really basic things dawned on me, the most basic being that life always goes on.
Day by day we live life and no matter what happens to us or the people in it, no matter how much heartache or joy we or others might be forced to endure/lucky enough to witness, each day ends and a new one comes along.

If You Have One Flat Tyre

Do you slash the other three?

Well obviously not.

Hello world and welcome to another day here on Planet Magnet.

Absolutely flat out out here myself so today shall be a short post with possibly a touch of motivation thrown in for good measure.

I imagine today will find you one of three things, either bright eyed and bushy tailed and heading for work, or possibly heading for the madness of something they call Black Friday or if you are over the pond still sleeping off yesterdays indulgences, mind you, if we are honest, us eaters don’t always need a reason of a festivity to over indulge…..
To me, naming this day Black Friday makes it sound like the day the stock markets failed but by all accounts it is a day when normal well adjusted people turn into lunatics in the vain hope they might just save that elusive extra 20% off of a new pair of Sauna Pants or something equally as important they know they must own in order to enhance their life.

Or if it does not and you don’t buy in to all of that consumerism, are you now feeling guilty for overdoing it by such a long way at your big festive meal yesterday?

Me? Thankful? You Bet!

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.

I think I need to start off by first of all wishing all of my readers/followers in the U.S.A a Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays to you guys!

As you probably know, this isn’t something that gets celebrated here in the U.K however judging by the fact I am now witnessing the fact we have adopted something called Black Friday, I don’t suppose it will be long… 😉

Now, if I am honest I have no real clue what Thanksgiving is really all about over the pond but I think I get the gist of it and that is simply being thankful, whether it be for love or money or health or happiness I don’t think it really is an issue. However, I honestly believe that it is possibly something that we should maybe practise on a daily basis no matter where we are in the world, especially when we consider how some people have to fight to simply live another day.

There’s Nowt As Strange As Folk…

Good morning world and thank you for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.

I trust this midweek post finds your hump day suitably acceptable and you are either looking forward to what the day will bring or are reflective over your day’s activities being happy with all accomplished.

Today I am feeling the need to talk about people. Not people in general but people who come in and out of our lives when it suits them, people who take umbrage at your mere presence when all you are doing is trying to help and people who cannot get over themselves and their own self worth.

A rant then I suppose?

Tasty Tuesday, Back With A Bang!

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.

Toady sees the return of Tasty Tuesday, my magnificent recipe day where I show how easy it is to prepare tasty and healthy food proving as always that if I can do it, anyone can do it!

I must first start by apologising to those of you who like to tune in for a recipe on this day because I can only assume it completely slipped my mind, honestly never even entering my consciousness to write a recipe because it was a Tuesday. Hopefully today’s offering will remedy this so lets see shall we.

So what’s on the menu today then Magnet? (That was the constant monologue in my brain asking that… 😉 )

What A Busy Little Bee….

Well hello world and welcome to the start of another busy week here on Planet Magnet.

That’s not to say that yesterday wasn’t a busy old day for me as well but I have plenty to do this week and am looking forward to being a busy bee once again.
We must all agree that no matter how lovely it is to be able to sit and relax, take it easy and please ourselves, it is also really nice to have a target for the day whether it be to write so many words or nap for so many hours or get all of the little outstanding jobs started, you know the ones you have been putting off for months….

Born To Be Mild…

Get your motor running, head out on the highway.
Looking for adventure and whatever comes our way…..

Yeah, perhaps not.

Have you seen the weather forecast?

Yeah me too and what is outside doesn’t resemble the warnings we were given over the past couple of days!

They said it was going to be bloomin’ terrible so I had already decided to say to the world “If you think I’m getting on my new steed and going out in that, then you have another think coming and thats for sure and certain….” 😉

This IS The Day..

This is the day your life will surely change
This is the day when things fall into place.*

I know some of you will know this phrase to have religious connotations but not being a religious person myself, I cannot make any claim on that so I settle for the perfectly wonderful lyric of Matt Johnson of The The fame.

This song know simply as “This is the day” was released many moons ago in 1984 and has once again recently entered my purview as something that is very apt.

This is the day that my life will surely change can be attributed to any day. In fact it can be attributed to EVERY day that we meet because we never know exactly what is going to happen, we never know exactly what we will face and if we are realistic, every single day, our lives change somehow, no matter how small or large that change may be.
