Building Dreams

I am a dreamer! I believe that  my dreams or goals are an important part of my life and that without them I flounder.
However with them I feel optimistic and full of ideas and strategies to achieve what ever I want.
I have read many self help books, organisation books, and goal getting books.
I have read The Secret, and the Law of Attraction.
I true to practise positive thoughts and visualise my life as I want it.
That is not always easy as I tend to suffer from great bouts of depression at times.
Today I am in the process of fighting my way back out of the latest bout, and I am concerntrating on the positive side of things.
Yesterday I ordered my new cooker, and fridge freezer. I have been wanting to replace the old ones for over a year.
So I have been saving up every spare penny and now I have managed it.
I would like to say that I am excited about it, but I'm more satisfied that I am achieving my goals.
At the beginning of August I replaced my car, after a month without a car. My previous car "died a death," after catastrophic engine failure. 
Again for over a year I had wanted to replace it but couldn't justify why.
But I got my little red sports car after all.

So I have found that if I want something, and I focus on it, then I will find a way to get it.
As long as I am not hurting anyone, getting into uncontrollable debt, or causing harm then I find a way.

So the next dream I have is still very vague and needs refining before I can make it a reality.
My Dream is to have a home abroad in the sunshine, within view or a stroll to the sea, and easy commute so family can stay. 
But that is too vague a dream at the moment.
My main thought is that I can build up my savings again, and investigate the places, follow forums, and gain knowledge of the best way of creating the dream.
Believe and you will achieve!

Reserecting The Blog

Gosh, not a single post since the beginning of the year!
So much has been going on in Mooloo's World, that I practically forgot that I even had a blog.
Although I post nearly every day on MSE about my life, I had set up this blog to record my makes. 
The truth is that since I opened my little Alterations shop, I haven't really had time to make anything and so I didn't really have anything to post.
Today, 19th August, it was suggested that I started a blog, and linked it to my posts on MSE, and that somehow I could generate an income from a blog!
I don't think that an income would be very forthcoming as yet. But it has reminded me that to start blogging outside of MSE world may generate some interest. 
So nothing ventured, nothing gained. 
Here I am to start practising the art of Blogging, and see where it takes me.

This may mean that I will need to change the title, but for now I will just start writing.

This time though I am going to shift my content from talking about my makes, to talking about my day.

Most mornings, I make myself a cup of tea with my travel kettle beside the bed. I use my trusty iPhone, and check my personal and my business bank balances. Hopefully there is some money to move into savings, and be aware of my spending.
Then I check my Emails, and Facebook.

What did we do before all of this technology? 
Personally I have been writing my diary/journal on paper, since around 1993.
Under my bed, in the loft are over 100 books to testify the fact!
I did write for a while on my Kindle, but eventually my granddaughter took over the kindle so I didn't get access to it, and then she damaged it.
So for about a year there is a lot of my ramblings missing. 

I have to get ready for work now, I can't be late as Staff don't start until 10.30 today.
