I am bemused by many things at the moment.  I am bemused that no matter how hard I try it is never enough. I am never good enough. I am bemused about Gizmo.  He is spending another night at the vets.  The bemused cats above sum up the expression on my face right now.


  1. Bemused at never being good enough....you are excellent and I mean it. You are a good listner, well reader of emails especially the ones I send.
    Sorry to hear about Gizzmo at the vets again. I do love those cats they each have a special character!

  2. Oh, poor Gizmo - I hope he comes home very soon in the rudest of rude health!

  3. Do hope Gizmo will be OK soon. Don't beat yourself up remember you can never please everybody all the time and I often think you can never please anybody any of the time so just be yourself and if it isn't good enough maybe that is in your estimation only. To do your best is all anyone can ask or expect of you. I speak as one who knows exactly how you are feeling I have a PhD in feeling not good enough!!

  4. Oh no Simone, I hope Gizmo is ok, sending him healing thoughts!!

  6. Very sorry to hear that Gizmo is having to spend a night at the vets. I hope he's going to be ok.
    Take care of yourself.

  11. Sorry to hear about Gizmo hope he is back soon. Don't be SO down on your self.

  12. Sorry to hear you're costantly underestimating yourself, I've told you this millions of time in the past..c'mon, you're a good friend to all of us, so clever in everything you make, I bet you're also a wonderful mum and wife!
    Sending Gizmo a big virtual cuddle!

  15. You need to read a book called 'The trance of scarcity' by Victoria Castle published by Berrett-Koehler Publishers.
    I never send comment to blogs just read them. The book is about why you are never enough. It is easy to read, you need need to read this book.
    Good Luck
