Hello World!!! is actually the first Blog. I haven't quite got the hang of this blogging yet...um...I wrote a lot of other stuff and seem to have lost it in cyberspace somewhere.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, travelling.
I have a Mum, called Sue, a Dad, called John, and a brother called David. That's not what I used to call him though. There is only 16 months between us so we both weren't very good at names. He ended up being Dayda Acoo. Which is baby talk for David McHugh.
The 4 of us travelled around until I was fourteen and my Dad left the airforce. Civilian life was wierd...We had been used to having surrogate family next door or over the road for our whole lives. We quickly learned that not all next door neighbours appreciate you trying to pop in and borrow a tin of beans with an IOU attached!!!
I would like to fast forward a couple of years to when I meet my soul mate Steve, and OOPS! I accidentally found myself pregnant...ARGHHHH. It has a happy ending though as we are happily married and have two wonderfull and beautiful girls called Charlotte (13) and Emily(7).
I am a deeply spiritual person and love philosophy, theology and most other things that end in an 'ology'. I have spent the last 11 years studying different spiritual practises. They range from Buddhism, Christianity, Kabbalah, and many more. The interesting thing about all of them is they have a beautiful thread that binds them all together - personal truths. I wouldn't be able to put a specific faith to my name as I feel spirituality is more important than the plate that you serve it on. I will always endeavor to respect people irrespective of their beliefs. After all how can anyone truly believe exactly what I believe, even twins who have been brought up in the same faith can't always agree!
I have tried to live my life with integrity and incorporate what I believe into my work, rest and play. To this end I became a Reflexologist since 2002. I taught myself for 1 year and when my family and friends started being blown away by it, they told me I really should get qualified. Thats the story to date. I am also a beauty therapist, this enables me to chat to clients, and I quite like chatting.
