Where the World Gets Put to Rights

Where the World Gets Put to Rights

This is the kind of place, with the kind of view, where I could imagine sitting for hours with a friend and just putting the world to rights over a few drinks. I'd love that kind of big porch, preferably somewhere warm, but not humid and right on the beach. The name of this house [...]

R E L A X

I started the month so relaxed and with plenty of blogging time and then suddenly, without me noticing, it was end of June. Where in the hell did June go! I knew June was going to be busy on the Seraphim front with Pride and our anniversary but holy moly....the month just flew past! Still, [...]

If Rosemary is for the Spirit, Then Lavender is for the Soul

It's been a short work week in the UK as it was a public holiday on Monday but even so the week seems to have flown by! The first week of a month is always a super busy time for me in both lives...but then I love to be busy. If you are looking for [...]

Heat and Eat

Heat and Eat

I don't know where you are in the world but the weather has been changing here every day. In April we've had beautifully warm Spring days, with not a cloud in the sky and thoughts turning to spending more time outside. Then a couple of days later heavy rain, a huge drop in temperatures and [...]

Hai Kahakai

I sent Mr M a message earlier, all excited because today I drove my car! Some of you know I had a severe ankle injury earlier this year and had some time off after a surgery. The injury was to my left foot...my clutch foot. After messaging Mr M I realised that most American cars [...]

Just as I settled down to writ this blog post my phone buzzed to let me know that my delivery from Amazon was just a few stops away and would arrive shortly. Last week I had ordered a new kettle....and a matching toaster. I didn't need the new toaster but it matched....ok...that's a good enough [...]

Goodnight Sweetheart

Goodnight Sweetheart

How is your Saturday going? Mine has been pretty chilled and relaxed and I am much enjoying the peace and quiet at home right now. I'm fairly certain an afternoon nap is in my very near future and I'd love to be taking it in a room like this. That's when I know that I [...]

Siesta Forever

Siesta Forever

Super short post today. Putting together this scene had me yearning for a holiday somewhere in the sun this year. I'm not risking booking a foreign holiday in 2021 but I plan to get some sun in 2022 that's for damn sure! I had actually planned to post this yesterday but got waylaid with birthday [...]

Festive Foodies

Festive Foodies

Well Christmas in real life is turning into a whole cycle of emotions over on this side of the pond. For weeks we have been told that there would be a five day relaxation of the 'tier' rules over the Christmas period. I personally thought five days was a bit excessive and Christmas Day and [...]

Be Nice

Be Nice

2020 has been rough on everyone and in almost every aspect of life. It's tested us personally and our relationships with others. I noticed in myself some changes a few months ago. I was becoming short-tempered, anxious and easy to anger. This was most obvious on social media. I took a step back and thought [...]
