If you are going to ask someone how they are, or in my case, I was asked how my mum was, then do make sure you stay and listen to their answer.
I mentioned this on another blog about where I was asked recently by one particular person at work, how my mum was. But when I started to say, I was left talking to myself. I may as well have just faced the wall and had a chat with that!
It’s not the first time this same person has done this, along with another noticable trait she likes to do.
Well no more. My walls are up with this person.
So if you ever in a situation you know someone is in difficulty and you just happen to ask how they are, or how a family member is, please, stay and listen to them. What’s the point asking, if you are just not going to listen and talk to the next person that comes in the room.
The person you leave and did not finish the conversation with, could be really struggling. Or by not listening and walking away, makes you look uncaring as well as bloody rude.

I love this post when I came across it and it helped to look at myself in a different way. It made me smile at what was my irritations, until now. It gave me some perspective and not to get too annoyed with myself. My mind has a junk-drawer and I sometimes cannot find, or lose stuff in my junk drawer.
Do you have a junk-drawer?
We have a “junk-drawer” in our kitchen. It’s the drawer where coupons, batteries, a hammer, screwdriver, pliers, tape measures, a flashlight, matches, lighters, cat-nip, and the assorted 1/2 used birthday candle packages lay scattered about. It’s a small drawer, but it seems, it has the room of Mary Poppins magic bag. It holds everything and […]

This was a post I was originally going to schedule for today, but I posted last night. I am doing a post re-share, because of how my posting may not have been seen by all, that follow via their reader, due to scheduling wrong.

Something I came across Facebook and I wanted to share here. There are many illnesses that are invisible, but because they are invisible, it does not mean our invisible illness are not easy. It does not make them any less.
Just some examples of invisible illnesses are:
- mental illness
- hearing loss
- Crohn’s disease
As I have mentioned, this is just a short list and there are many other invisible illnesses.
