The Chocolate Box

The Chocolate Box

I have been in the blogging doldrums for a wee while now and even on the rare occasions I've had time to blog I haven't really felt motivated and inspired to do so. Then, I visited Tannenbaum and saw the house release there by Hisa. Hisa haven't released a house I don't like to be [...]

My Only Friend Was The Man in the Moon

My Only Friend Was The Man in the Moon

There was a time when I was alone Nowhere to go and no place to call home My only friend was the man in the moon And even sometimes he would go away, too Then one night, as I closed my eyes I saw a shadow flying high He came to me with the sweetest [...]

C’mon Over

C’mon Over

Yesterday I made soup. The first batch of homemade soup of the season...yellow peppers and tomato soup. There was enough left over for lunch today. Tonight I had a hearty, autumn dinner. The food changes with the season and it's another reason that this time of year is one of my favourites. I love throwing [...]

The Calmest View

The Calmest View

I could do with a calm view today. I have a long-ass day ahead of me with back to back seminars morning and afternoon. I hate doing them on Zoom/cam. It's a lot more noticeable if you look away to check a text or email but the good news is I get to finish early [...]

My Autumn Mood

My Autumn Mood

Happy Saturday. I slept in super late this morning and work with a start. For a split second I thought it was a weekday and I had severely overslept for work. Those seconds are so disheartening. I hate being late for anything and I'm usually that person that arrives at least ten minutes early for [...]

Coastal Lunch

Coastal Lunch

Hey everyone. Happy Tuesday. While I was putting together this scene Mr M tagged me in a video for a song on facebook and it made me very nostalgic for Italy. I've visited several places in Italy over the years and would probably have gone there on holiday this year if it wasn't for Coronavirus. [...]

Marrakesh Express

Marrakesh Express

Happy Sunday. I hope this post finds you happy, well and safe. I sometimes think we're pretty lucky to have already had our established Second Lives in place when the pandemic hit. We were already used to using technology to stay in touch. We were already used to the benefits of long-distance friendships and relationships. [...]

Who Run the World? Girls!

Who Run the World? Girls!

I've had this song in my head since the moment I put on this suit which is three parts of the latest release from Blueberry! I'm going to quote directly from Blueberry's Facebook post on what is included in the release because, frankly, they do a much better job than I. "First we have gorgeous [...]

A Little Break is All You Need

A Little Break is All You Need

One of the things I love about working with my business partner, Del, is the pace we work at. When we believe is a good idea, we don't have red tape to go through, we don't have to ponder on it for a while. We're quick to take action. So, watch this space for a [...]

I See the Sea

I See the Sea

There are many things that apparently we hand down to our children...some form their personality and some literally form their physical attributes. But, we all hand down sayings and things we learned as a child to the next generation. Little things like, when going on a day trip to the seaside, being the first one [...]
