I Must Confess…Randomness

This week I’m heading a little off-road and confessing to some randomness, something I haven’t done for a while. I must confess that it’s quite handy to have a weekly outlet to get things off my chest and cleanse my soul!

True Confessional

First off, I have to confess that I have never been properly fitted for a bra. My husband gave me a Bras n Things voucher for Mothers Day and I am intending to go in shortly to actually get fitted for the very first time. I am small breasted and have gone through life as a 12A – it will be interesting to see whether I am actually that size or not.

Second, I have to confess that I am quite nervous about going to the psychologist this afternoon for my first appointment. I am no stranger to psychologists but it doesn’t make it any easier to take that first step and talk to someone about my issues. I know I will cry, I know it will bring some painful revelations to the surface and I know that I am not looking forward to it. But I know it is something that I need to do in order to make real change in my life.

Third, I have to confess that I am now officially addicted to Candy Crush Saga.

There is a very good reason that I don’t normally start playing Facebook games. I get addicted very, very easily. Cafe World was my first obsession. Man, I used to live my life around that game.  I would get up early to get meals started and get back online after work to make sure they were delivered to my customers before going off.

So, keeping this in mind, I resisted Candy Crush Saga for ages. But I have still fallen for the sheer addiction of getting those candies to match, getting rid of the jelly and making sure the fruit fall to the bottom. Matilda is also now addicted. Yes, you are looking at the mother of the year here!

Fourth, I have to confess that on Saturday I went shopping by myself, for the first time in ages. I also have to confess, that before my shopping jaunt, I did not own a belt or a decorative scarf. Accessories are not my strong suit. But I am now the proud owner of a belt and of two scarves. And a bag for my work folders. And a grey dress for work and play. I may not have shopped for a while but it’s good to know that I can still do it!

Finally, returning to our weekly prompt, I have to confess that I have mixed tastes when it comes to names. I like feminine, traditional names for girls but I like different, strong names for boys. As you know, Gilbert, Matilda and Delilah are pseudonyms for my kids’ real names. My firstborn son’s name is a little unusual, in the manner of Baxter, Spencer, Hunter and Archer (all very cool names!) while my daughters’ names are far more traditional, like Elizabeth, Madeleine, Lily and Mia.

I must confess that I am dissatisfied that my kids names don’t actually “go” together. Do you get what I mean?

When I was young, I dreamed of matching names for all my kids. It was all about them matching in some way, either in number of letters, syllables or in style. I have always had a soft spot for classic, traditional names and I always assumed that’s what I’d have – Victorias and Christians or Alexanders and Annabelles.

In real life, you have to name your child jointly with your partner. I am married to a teacher, which is possibly the worst occupation to be in when it comes to names. He invariably knows a troublesome child who happens to be named the same as your absolute favourite name, which then knocks it out as a viable option. It’s painful. Extremely painful.

To be honest, I can’t believe that we ever agreed on names, on three separate occasions! And although our kids names don’t match in number of letters or in style, they suit my kids to a tee and I can’t imagine them being known by anything else.

So, what are you going to confess this week? Hopefully something juicy. I am ready and waiting to hear your deepest, darkest thoughts!

  1. Love your shopping finds. Hope all goes well this afternoon, I will be thinking of you. I’ve cheated this week and while it’s a new post it includes a link that isn’t exactly on topic either. I am really looking forward to next week’s prompt!

  2. I did see your reminder on twitter last night but other things got in the way this morning. I will start working on pet peeves…as I was planning something on that anyway. Bad me, I’m in a disorganised space at the moment…(my head, not the actual house, tho that’s a little dishevelled too!)

    I’ve never had a bra fitted either. Bras always change depending on the brand anyway so I figure what’s the point lol.

    • Actually, you have a very good point there Teegs, didn’t think about that. I have never had mine measured either, and don’t intend to, but mainly because I am a bit sick of being groped by strangers (ECGs and heart ultrasounds before anybody raises an eyebrow) and don’t fancy yet another one in the vicinity of my bosoms 🙂

  5. Janet says:

    That’s why I don’t touch FB games – I used to be majorly addicted to Scramble!!! Don’t think my marriage could take the pressure of another addiction!!!

    Love your shopping purchases too – go you xxx

  6. Me says:

    I was fitted for a bra a few years ago – and I wasn’t wearing the right size by far – and funnily enough on Saturday I went into the little shop that fitted me and bought two more bras – a good fitting bra is so much more comfortable !!
    I don’t really do accessories but I do do scarves – I have heaps of them in quite a few different colours – I love to brighten my black/grey palette with them.
    Have the best week !

    Not much of a gamer really, which is probably a good thing when I see how addictive they are. Retail therapy is always a good thing. Good luck with your appointment, it’s hard but I’m sure you’ll feel better afterwards knowing you are doing something to help yourself. xo

    I am over candy crush as I have been stuck on the same level for 2 weeks!! Good luck with this afternoon, I hope it goes well. Lucky you getting some new bras, I have nothing but attractive maternity bras in my future!!
    ps will be back to check out the other confessions over the next few days!!

  9. I also get VERY addicted to games, but don’t consider that a problem 🙂 I adore electronic games, am the original gamer, but am more into things like Read Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare. Though I have certainly been addicted to things similar to Candy Crush in the past.

    The instance of names not matching in siblings which most sticks in my mind – if I understand the concept correctly – was a friend of mine whose niece was named Gabriella McHugh (which was a little odd in itself) and whose nephew – Gabriella’s brother – was named Fred. Hmmm.

    What about my own niece and nephew? Oh, I’d better not, they’re bound to Google search their whole names some day, will no doubt land straight on this comment and Aunty Alison will be in the shit. Again. 😉

    Isn’t it cool how your kids’ names always end up suiting them perfectly!! Had to laugh about you heading off for a bra fitting – I haven’t had one for about 20 years and I think the girls have changed a bit since then, I’d rather tug and pull than have another though LOL. Good luck at your appointment AND at overcoming Candy Crush Saga addiction – let me know if you ever want a game of Words With Friends – it’s the only one I’ve ever succumbed to! x

  12. Jo Tracey says:

    My husband plays candy crush on my phone- & runs the battery down. I can’t bear the chocolate rounds- I feel claustrophobic as the chocolate crowds & invades. Not really sure what that says about me! Off topic again this week…
    Jo Tracey recently posted..I must confess: I’m a crap critic…

  13. I miss reading your blogs, they always make me smile, nod and go – I SO KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN! Life has been weird the past few months, and sorry I haven’t been a better bloggy friend!
    Anyway, not that’s out of the way…
    I am SO addicted to CCS – 124 so far – hubby up to 203!
    One of the boy names you mentioned is the name of one of my boys!
    I’m glad I got my size fitted as I was wearing the wrong size!
    I hope the visit went okay, thinking of you!
    BTW, my work has slowed down a bit, well, from this week so I hope to confess a bit more soon xx Em

  14. Katyberry says:

    You might be out of practice with shopping, but you’ve definitely still got the knack! That outfit looks great.

    I made it my mission over the past year to work more with accessories – I look around at other people and I think it just finishes an outfit with just a bit more polish.

    I will never be a fashionista, but I am much much more confident about throwing on a scarf or necklace or bangle these days.

    Next I want to get into some cute brooches. Something about winter and cardigans inspires me in this direction.

  15. I am another candy crusher for the confessional! Also have to confess to being addicted to Smurf’s Village & Temple Run. Yeah … I have it bad!! Dropping in via FYBF! Thanks for sharing!
