When it comes to my social life (bearing mind that I have two small boys!), I prefer a night in with the girls rather than a night out on the tiles. We’ve done the usual party plan parties and movie nights however someone recently suggested something that intrigued me and that was the possibility of asking a psychic Tarot reader to come to the house and do readings.
I imagine this would be very entertaining initially however having looked a little further into what trained psychics actually do as part of their work on a daily basis I’m intrigued. Psychics use their gifts and training to help in counselling situations, for clairvoyance, Tarot and much more.
My uneducated assumption of a psychic revolves primarily around what I’ve seen on TV which involves smoke, mirrors and a lot of scary voices. As someone who lives in the real world I have to admit that while I perhaps would not seek out a psychic for my own use that many do and find comfort, aid and support from doing so.
Back to the idea of a night in having some psychic Tarot readings done, it might actually be a lot of fun and could perhaps de-mystify the field somewhat and introduce my friends and I to parts of ourselves and the world that we previously hadn’t thought of or experienced.
I have a good friend who is a Reiki master and while I haven’t experienced Reiki myself I have a lot of respect for what she does and her beliefs. Fifty years ago the idea of something like Reiki might have been a case for ridicule and is now widely accepted. It seems that those who use a different range of gifts, namely psychics are very much the same.
My question for you is this: Have you ever consulted a psychic, had a Tarot reading or similar? I have very little experience of the field and would love to hear other people’s experiences before giving more thought to the idea of having an experienced psychic come to see me and my friends. It may be a giggle and fun but who knows, someone might develop a sincere interest in it all so why not?

On the 28th June Roy and I will be celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary. TEN YEARS! We are quite chuffed about this, nowadays it is an achievement and yet for us it has been the most fantastic ten years. Anyway, the reason for mentioning it is that we are both looking for gift inspiration.
Traditionally tenth wedding anniversary gifts should be based on a theme around aluminium or tin however we’ve decided to pass on the traditional theme this year (tin??).
I’m easy to buy for I think. Roy struggles so I have an Amazon wishlist and every so often I add a few items for him to choose from or to give him inspiration. This is a good plan otherwise I could end with a Gameboy or similar (Yup – my birthday 1999, a thoughtful gift for when I was working nightshifts). I’ll drop hints and keep putting things in the wishlist I think
Roy is easy to buy for. He is a loveable geek. Like me he loves sci-fi and fantasy and unlike me he is quite a creative person as he is very good with art, clay models, music etc. He is also a tech lover. What he’d really love for his Man Den (other than a portable loo so he never has to leave it) is some Wireless Speakers. I personally love sound and music but absolutely hate wires everywhere.
At one of our first homes Roy bought a surround sound type thing and of course the wires would hang down and drive me mad. This was before the wonder of Wifi Speakers became known.
I am actually tempted to get some for him and some for the garden. You can now use these wireless speakers anywhere you like and how great would it be to have music outside when you are relaxing or having a barbecue without a mass of cables everywhere?
Speakers may not sound like the most romantic gift but we tend to go for practical and wanted over fluffy and meeting someone’s romantic criteria. Fluffy teddies and chocolates are lovely but something that we’ll use and get constant pleasure out of is a much better gift choice in my book.
My question for you today is: If you could choose any gift for yourself for a birthday or anniversary this year, what would it be?
