About LauraDanielle


Writing is something that I love. It is one my passions and is an escape for me. I find inspiration in every thing, from songs to interactions I have with people or even just random thoughts and ideas that I re-work into stories or poems. I am also over on the 'other side' under the name Lauradj, so check out some of my work there also.

I work in child-care, as some of you may know. A lot of my stories and musings will be about my job and my experiences with babies and young children and seeing the world through their eyes.

I am a big history fan and I have plans to perhaps start a historical based series.

Anne of Cleves. I want to ask how she managed to survive Henry VIII and come out of it rather well.

Topic: Life Hacks
Posted: 10 Mar 2017 14:58

Post 'life hacks' tips and tricks below. It can be anything you want. Cooking tips, gardening hacks, tricks for when you're feeling ill, how to get rid of that pesky stain, old wives tales or 'hacks' from your culture or up bringing. Anything at all that you have used or read somewhere that has made your life easier somehow.

Here are just two general tricks I have found, to get started.

1.) Use baking soda to lift off hard to remove cooking stains from pots and pans. A tablespoon of baking soda and a few drops of water will make a paste, which you can then scrub into any burn or cooked-on stains. Wait about thirty minutes and then wash the paste away and the stain should be diminished.

2.) Chamomile tea can be used as a toner/cleanser. Brew two chamomile tea bags in a cup of boiling water, let it steep for a few minutes and then let it cool down. The tea bags themselves can be used for the delicate eye area, while the actual cup of tea can be used as a face wash. Chamomile is gentle enough for sensitive skin and will brighten the skin and lighten any lingering acne scars or marks you may have (Gradually of course). It will also moisturise the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. Just rub the liquid onto the face then pat dry gently with a face cloth.

The Little Things

It's the little things of the job that make everything worth it. All the stress of working in education, all the meetings with the big bosses, the paperwork, the endless staff meetings, professional developments, the weekend-long courses, all the after-hours work we have to put it to get work complete, that all just seems to melt away with the little moments that happen each day. Those...

Audio Story Pania of the reef

Still and silent stream in the midnight dark Resting amongst the flax is the night sky beauty herself Quenching a thirst from the sweet, still waters Winds that whisper vows and carry the faintest of spells Her eyes are deep pools of wintery water Playing in the shallows feels safe, any deeper and you risk drowning An otherworldly beauty emerges from her secret stream Such an ethereal...

Adventures with an autistic boy

I got told off at work the other day. Not uncommon, the children always have an answer for everything, and I am constantly getting attitude and sass, but I just sass them straight back. I am teaching the next generation to be sarcastic assholes. You're welcome, society. The particular boy who told me off, has no language skills. He is on the autistic spectrum and he has a specialist who...

The Grand Opening

If you read the newspaper regularly, you probably missed the news about the grand opening, for the simple fact, it wasn't reported by the media or tabloids. I am, of course, talking about the grand opening of my nail salon last week at the daycare.  It had all started the week prior when one of the boys asked why my nails were purple. I had painted them that colour so they matched my dress...

Fashion 101

Working with children, you're privy to some of their conversations. Overheard snippets as you walk past or sit next to them. Even the very young children somehow seem to be able to effectively communicate with each other. To me, it just sounds like random noises and baby babble, but they just know.  On Wednesday I was partially privy to such a conversation when I walked down the other end...

RIP Rudolph Valentino

Little kitten, you never learned to meow properly in the short time we had you. You made weird, half-assed cat noises, now it is very, very quiet at meal times. I will miss coming home to find you sleeping on the end of my bed, or sometimes to find your poo on my bedroom floor. I will miss how easily wound up you were, and the scratches you gave me from constantly messing with you. I will...

Cat Confessions

Hello, hoomans of the interwebz, my name is Rudolph Valentino, but I just get called Tino for short. Other names of mine are little shit or Turd-meister because instead of doing my business outside in the dirt, I choose to go indoors. I especially like to go into the bedrooms of my hoomans, burrow under their sleeping areas and go there. I do not tell them I have done this, instead, I wait for...

Canada Food

"My Uncle Patrick is in Canada," one young boy announced to me on Friday. I was on outside duty that afternoon and it was rather quiet, so I was standing on one of the boxes that the kids can climb up and then slide down, blowing bubbles for the few interested children. It was mostly the 2 and 3-year-olds that cared, while some of the older children, especially the boys, shrugged and ran off...

If You Really See Eurydice

Stolen kisses beneath the Oak A flash of a breast in the moonlight Tentative touches under the cover of darkness Muted pleasures as we veil ourselves in the forest Aphrodite-like perfection masquerading as Artemis Summer longing turns to Autumn lust Winter's icy kiss becomes the whispered vows of Spring Libation to Apollo as we unite in a field in full bloom Playing joyful songs as my...

Thanks, boobies!

I don't know if it's the children I work with or just children in general, but some of them are obsessed with the human anatomy. Whether it's the questions I have documented in my other stories, or pointing to certain body parts and using them as weapons, I feel like my stories these days are mostly about the human body from a child's perspective.   One little boy refers to me as 'boobies'....
