Forgotten Fun

Forgotten Fun

You'd think that the older we get the less risk averse but that's not the case. When I was a kid I'd be the first in line at the amusement parks for the biggest, tallest rollercoasters and the scariest, most gut-churning rides. It has been a while since I went to an amusement park in [...]

At The End of the Garden

At The End of the Garden

I have this place at the end of the garden, hidden away in the shrubs and bushes where I can go to work. It's calm and natural and peaceful and I can think there. Today I decorated it some more with some of my favourite items. It's the second, and last weekend of 6 Republic [...]

Create A Reality with Intensity

Create A Reality with Intensity

“The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity." Alberto Giacometti  Quick post today and I have rehearsals this morning for the pantomime I'm in soon!

Little Shop of Bakery Horror

Little Shop of Bakery Horror

I absolutely hated cooking at school...or home economics as it was also called. I hated the whole rigmarole of weighing and measuring ingredients the night before and putting them in a biscuit tin to walk to school with. I lived a good 20 min walk from my school and I detested the walk in with [...]

Time Stand Still For Just a Moment…Please

Time goes so quickly when you are enjoying yourself or in good company. Yesterday was one of those days. It was a packed evening where we went sailing for the first time in a long while. I remembered how relaxing and how enjoyable it is, especially as we had invited another couple along with us [...]

Music is What Feelings Sound Like

Music is What Feelings Sound Like

Today has just flown by so far. I, like so many others, have been glued to the TV screen for most of the day watching the Royal Wedding. We really do pomp and circumstance well in Britain and today's wedding had plenty of that mixed with elements of Meghan Markle's background. It was unlike any Royal [...]

If I Could Say It In Words…

If I Could Say It In Words…

“If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.” Edward Hopper I feel under a certain frustration at present. Unable to find a way to express myself, my thoughts and feelings. My outlet, this blog, no longer feels safe and I've lost my voice. I'm sure it will pass. I [...]
