Drop Outs

I'm totally the bad sister in this relationship and Sady, believe it or not, is the good sister! Actually pulling together this collaboration made me giggle. I used to work with someone that whenever you asked them if they had done something they would say 'I was just about to'...without fail that would be their [...]

I'm sure I'm not the only one that has nicknames for neighbours, or people you need to refer to, to other people but you don't know their names? Many years ago I used to work for a publishing house and one of the ladies we would see every day walking through the office was nicknamed [...]

Photoshop introduced the sky replacement tool a little while back but recently I've been using another plug in for Photoshop called Luminar AI...I have to say I love it! It's far more intuitive than Photoshop and has a lot more options. Overall I think the end effect is brilliant. But....and it's a big butt....I feel [...]

I'm heading to my favourite holiday destination...Italy! it's a whole year away but gives me something to look forward to. Of course one of my absolute favourite things about [...]

The start of the month is always busier for me than the latter part of the month and one of the reasons I look forward to the last half of the month is that it gives me time to blog. It's how I unwind from the busy times and honestly the reason I keep on [...]

My parental unit visited twice last week...for the first time in nearly 2 years due to lockdowns etc. To say it was stressful was an understatement. My father and I are chalk and cheese on almost every issue known to man. My lip is sore from biting it because I didn't want 3 whole days [...]

Make My Reality

I'm working from home today in real life and took a break just to get this post completed and published. I sat staring at the photo deciding what to write about and my eyes keep looking above, over the top of my screen out of the window. It's a beautiful blue sky with big fluffy [...]
