A Smile Is a Curve That Sets Everything Straight

I’m a book reader. I read every night before I go to sleep. No matter how tired I am I have to read at least a page of a book to help me unwind and replace all the muddle of other stuff in my head with a story I can get lost in.  It’s rarely…

Closer to Home

I had a very long day at work yesterday but a joyful one. I usually finish work mid-afternoon as I start super early in the morning. I’m a morning person so this works for me but today I had to work until later in the day to attend a meeting. I decided to drive to…

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

Weather Girls

Have you ever noticed just how much people can be like the weather sometimes? There’s the saying about people who ‘blow hot and cold’ indicating someone who shows a lot of interest in someone or something at one point and then equally disinterested moments, hours or days later. I’ve realised that one of the things…

Fairground Attraction

It’s the end of my week off work and it’s been a very busy and exciting week full of new friendships, laughter, fun and…well…it’s me we’re talking about so there was work too. With my FaMESHed head on we were busy finalising plans for the 5th anniversary round of FaMESHed which opens on the 1st…

Warm Up – Cool Down

I’ve had a week off work and been super busy planning ahead. I’m a total planner and yes, a little bit of a control freak when it comes to planning my time and making arrangements. I’ve taken lots of photos and planned out several blog posts to get ahead of myself because I know how…

It’s got to be….PERFECT!

I always have a tune in my head while I’m blogging and today is no different. The song invading my mind today is Fairground Attraction’s Perfect. It’s been a long while since I heard that tune but I found myself humming the melody while I edited this photo.  See, the person in this photo with…

Here Comes the Sun

There’s been a break in the weather! It’s superbly Springlike in the UK at the moment which is such a refreshing change from the dull, dowdy weather of the last few weeks. Now the battle for control of the heating and opening windows begins at home and at work. See, I don’t feel the cold…

Fluffy Fairytales and Faux Princes

Cinderella – the story of the most epic first date ever!!! A viral story this week has been doing the rounds about a first date that didn’t quite go to plan when the lady declined the opportunity of a second date and the chap involved then texted her asking for her to pay half of…

I May Not Fit in That Box

  This week I’ve had several discussions with different friends and I started to think about how we interact differently with different people. Sometimes it’s because those people don’t know us as well as other friends so our guard is more up, or down, dependent on who the person is. Often it’s because of the…

OCD for Exercise?

Why is that I have a tendency to be a little OCD about really silly little things but can’t seem to catch the OCD bug for things that would be beneficial to me like exercise, or healthy eating or in fact any kind of self-discipline sometimes. I thought about this today when I was opening…

I Never Stray Too Far From the Sidewalk

“Aren’t we a pair of old cynics” I said to a friend over the weekend as we talked doom and gloom about the state of the average SL friendship and relationship. Don’t get me wrong I’m not a negative person in any shape or form but I am quite pragmatic when it comes to a…
