Through My Eyes

Some people say I talk too much, that I always have a story to tell. I don't know what's round the corner so my blog is about life through my eyes and making every day count.

The era of social networking!

When people look back at different eras they remember different things, different trends, different Genres different ways of life. I think when I get old enough to look back on the noughties I will associate this era with the amazing thing that is social networking. Something that wasn’t around much 10 years ago and now has made its founders multi billionaires!
I am social network mad! For many reasons really but the main being I like being nosey at other people’s lives, ok not ashamed to admit I like seeing what people are up to!
Another plus point is I never wonder what the weather is doing as everytime we have anything going on with the weather I see it all over Facebook before I look out the window! And gone are the days of spending hours on the phone to sky tv to sort out the telephone line, nice you just tweet in with plenty of hashtags and sky tv reply straight away!
But despite being a social network addict i also get quite annoyed at some of the things I see on Facebook
And the things people share.
I think one of the most annoying things I see is this……

“Can’t believe that’s just happened, feeling gutted”
Or ” feeling devastated, am so shocked”
Or “just got the best news ever”

To me these sort of status’s are just about attention, people want to be asked what’s wrong, they want their status to keep popping up on everyone’s wall when everyone asks what’s wrong or what the news is!

I think a lot of status’s are for attention, I mean they must be, why else would you publicly tell the world about the massive row you just had with your husband and what an idiot he is?! I find social networking arguments quite ridiculous and a little funny to read!

Then I suppose the attention status’s are better than the really lame status’s like “sat at home watching tv” or “enjoying my lasagne for tea”
Does anyone really care?!

Another really annoying thing at the moment is this whole selfie thing. Some are really nice for example iv done a couple of selfies with my daughter and they are pictures I will treasure for ever, but the millions of pictures of girls pouting with a camera in their face is quite strange!

Then there’s the really skinny gorgeous girls posting photos of their skinny toned Washboard stomachs saying how well the diets going…. Makes me wonder if they just post that do people comment a load of compliments like aww you don’t need to diet, and your gorgeous type comments!
Oh and if your going to post details if your every move, when your away & not at home etc then don’t cry when you get burgled!

After reading all the above you would think I hate social networking but it’s not the case, it’s a genius thing a lot if people couldn’t live without trees days! It’s funny how times change & technology moves on.

Happy 10 years Facebook!

Are Psychic people actually Psychic?

Are Psychic’s for real or is it just a big con?

Somebody recommended a really good spiritual medium and while this wouldn’t normally be my thing I thought I would have a go!
I rang and booked him giving a false name, I booked for me and a work colleague but on the day she backed out and I persuaded my dads partner to come along.
So we arrived both very sceptical! I went in first and was so nervous!
The first thing he said was that he sensed hospitals and operations, maybe a co-incidence as he didn’t exactly go into detail but given what i have had done in the past few months I thought it was strange it was the first thing he said!
He then went on to describe my husband very accurately and then tell me his exact job and what he is doing at the moment, he knew I had a 10 year old daughter and described her perfectly. He told me to stop worrying about my dad (who had also had cancer) as he is through the worst and going to be just fine. He described my whole life quite accurately and some stuff he couldn’t have even found out off Facebook!
There was a lot of other stuff he said as well that’s very accurate but I can’t remember it all!
I was amazed and kept thinking how could he know this stuff! I hadn’t given my name or said where I was coming from so it would have been difficult for him to Facebook search me!!

Anyway then my dads partner went in and she came out crying! He knew all about a death in the family and it was very emotional to her as the person that died was a baby, not something that he could have possibly known. He said the baby was happy and she needed to stop worrying. He also described some events that took place in a previous relationship she was in, events nobody ever knew about!

So I left amazed, it’s not that I don’t Believe as such but i always try and think of a logical explanation, I honestly can’t though, how could he know this stuff in such detail. Not only that but his readings could be very emotional for some, if not life changing, so surely people wouldn’t con people to that degree, or am I just being gullible?

Either way these psychic people bring a lot of comfort to a lot of people so
That’s surely not a bad thing? I would like to think that when we die it’s not the end and there is something else but nobody has ever come back to tell the tale but as intrigued as I am I
Hope I have to wait a long time to
Find out!!
