HS-MS & Pancakes

Hs-Ms today is Envy - characterised by an insatiable desire for something that someone else has.

To be honest this really got me thinking! A while back I found some photos of myself before I had my gorgeous boys, when I was single and strong and positive.
Once I had Jack, my life changed, certainly for the better, but it has left me feeling less positive about myself, not just that I'm a different size, but I'm not as strong as I once was, I take things that people say literally! I still have my fun side, but not as much.
I envy the person that I once was, it feels a lifetime ago as much as a different life altogether!
I am happier now than I have ever been, but I'm still envious of the person eight years ago.

On a happier note, we had pancakes for lunch yummy.
This is as healthy as I could make mine, fresh strawberries and fromage frais - yum yum yum - Hope this weekend is a good one for you. Hopefully I'll have some scrapping to show tomorrow, as I'm venturing along to the MK Scrappers crop for the first time!! Eek... how nervous am I?


  1. Yes, that was very personal. Don't worry, it will come back, you will reclaim the person you used to be, but with bells on lol. It just takes a little time that's all.


  2. Oh don't be too envious of that girl in the picture. Her life didn't have 2 great boys. She wasn't as wise as you are now. She doesn't have the life experiences you have now. And she didn't have HSMS in her life!
    Pancakes look good!

  3. I totally get this!

    It's not that I want to go back there. It's not that I don't want my life as it is now. It's just I sometimes wonder where "I" have gone and will "I" ever come back.

    Take care . . . {{hugs}} . . . Sue
