Someone has just sent this through to me, and if you need a really good laugh, this should do the trick.
WARNING: PUT DOWN YOUR COFFEE AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE HAD A WEE BEFORE YOU READ THIS .....
OR YOU JUST MIGHT REGRET IT :)
This is from newshound Dave Barry's colonoscopy journal:

I splashed out and bought 4 bunches and my house smells gorgeous and there are roses everywhere you turn!

She asks for your to write down the following;
8 things for which you have a passion,
8 things you'd like to do before you die,
8 things you say a lot,
8 books you have read recently,
8 movies you've seen 8 times,
and finally 8 people who should do this meme.
I've been writing down my answers to these and I realise it's not me. I don't like this idea of 8 things - perhaps I have 88 or perhaps just the one, but to me it feels like if I write it down, that's it, it's final ...
I think it was the "8 things to do before you die" that got me. I felt if I has listed these down here, if I ever do achieve all 8 (and I fully intend to), that would give me bog all more to look forward to and I might as well launch myself off the fridge freezer and be done with it, and I don't much like that thought at the moment.
I think I'll just keep all the 8's to myself but I do hope that any 8 of you out there who fancies doing it, please go ahead and let me know.
I'm sure it's much more interesting when someone else does it anyhow.
AND INSTEAD I SHALL LEAVE YOU WITH A COUPLE OF PICTURES OF THE SUNRISE ON MY MORNING DRIVE TO DROP MY SON AT SCHOOL .....
- and there's my little bit of buoyancy to keep me afloat today
- Hope it does the same for you. :)

My doc (who's a complete sweetie - and although she does pretend to be awfully serious and doctor like sometimes - is a good friend), says it's called 'depression'. How I see it, is that it's all a load of shite that puts up black clouds throughout fabulous days and refuses point blank to let you see through the haze and enjoy the sunshine.
I don't think it's really explainable if you haven't been down this long dark road, and it so goes against the grain this feeling sorry for yourself crap. I keep shouting;
"For Goodness Sake Woman, Get a Grip!!",
But my head doesn't respond.
Beth from "Living a Quotable Life" has tagged me for a meme, and although I've never done one before, I shall revamp this blog in its honour and I shall take a leaf out of the advice of another of my fellow bloggers, Expatmum and her comment which I have decided is an excellent plan;
" ..what about thinking of something really nice once a day, or taking a great photo like you just have? It may not totally lift your spirits but it can't hurt. Personally, I listen to great music and it helps."
Like she says - "it can't hurt", and so I'm off on a slight tangent with this blog from now on and it shall be known as "The Chick's Lifejacket".
Definition of the word 'lifejacket';
"an article of protective clothing that is designed to keep the wearer's head floating above the surface of the water."
Sounds perfect to me ....
