Last week I had the strangest dream. The dream was so vivid that when I finally woke up, I felt exhausted and confused. I had the same dream again this weekend, so now I feel compelled to share it. I do not know if there is meaning or not, but it is interesting none-the-less. ___________________________... Continue Reading →
Last night as I was sleeping, I dreamt—marvelous error!— that a spring was breaking out in my heart. I said: Along which secret aqueduct, Oh water, are you coming to me, water of a new life that I have never drunk? Last night as I was sleeping, I dreamt—marvelous error!— that I had a beehive...

Beautiful post by a beautiful lady! Must read!
Welcome to this virtual coffee morning in honour of International Women’s Day 2018.
Last week I posted my thoughts on two issues that have impacted women in the last year, including the #MeToo campaign and the law that now allows women in Saudi Arabia to drive a car:
Grab yourself a cupcake and a cup of coffee.
Please join in with your views on women’s issues, and also let us know your involvement with any community programmes that supports and empower women.
Back in the day…..
The world is a very different place to the day I started my first part time job at 14 years old over 50 years ago. Waiting staff, Office Staff and Nurses were mainly women (except for some specialised areas such as mental health care), but the majority of the management was male!

A person named Anybody had wandered off the path and was lost. They fell into a hole whose floor was like quicksand and they started to slowly sink down. They did nothing for a long time, even though they knew there were other people walking around the hole that seemed fine and not falling in.... Continue Reading →
Today, I experienced a heartache unlike any other. I said goodbye to my sister for what may be the last time ever. My therapist tells me that we never know if it will be our last time seeing someone, but in this case, it’s different.
My sister has surgery on Wednesday. It’s the kind of surgery that is dangerous – life threatening for someone like her. Actually, the odds of her dying are greater than the odds of her living. However, if the doctors don’t operate, she will die a slow and painful death.

Today I have to tell you something amazing! I know I didn’t upload a blogpost yesterday and I am really, really REALLY sorry!
You probably see the image above and I am so happy! A few days ago I got this notification, but I hadn’t had the time to write a brand new blogpost about it! I do understand if you can’t read the Dutch lines below the image: ‘Comgratulations for writing 100 blogposts at MaBeautility!’. I was really surprised: time flies when you are having fun. I never knew WordPress would give you a notification for this.
Now to the point: I really want to thank you all for your lovely and kind support. I want to thank you for the mails I got, for the follows, reads, likes, comments and SO much more!
I actually do not know how to thank you for all the support…
