I’ve been reading a lot of blogs with emphasis on a word for the new year. I thought I’d share my thoughts with you. However, I’m greedy! Yes, I’m afraid it’s true. One word is not enough. I’m currently working with far more than one, but today I will only share one with you. Change!… Read More A word for the year?
There are a number of reasons why I won’t be celebrating the above in any shape or form, but the main reason is that the event I mentioned in this post here actually took place on 31st October. The activities were so entirely demonic that our family wish to have no participation, ‘fun’ or not
Life is hectic! Each day I lurch precariously towards the next one. Next day, that is. The day starts as my feet touch the ground in the morning, and ends just before I go to bed. There isn’t much time to take stock, to take a breath – or to catch up with friends. That’s… Read More 10 Things I want to do in 2011 Day 4
I was overwhelmed with the lovely comments and emails that I received as a result of yesterday’s post. Thank you all so much for reading and taking the time to pass comment. I thought that today I would just tell you a little more about the birthday girl. Mum was born very shortly before the… Read More Happy Birthday

I can’t resist sharing this photograph with you. I took it for a magazine that is featuring this product in the not too distant future, however, I didn’t really look at it until today. We sell it at shows, and also on my website, but I’m so used to seeing it that it wasn’t until… Read More It really is this clear
I am ashamed to say that it wasn’t until this morning that I learnt today is International Women’s Day. This is in spite of the fact there are over 400 events taking place here in the UK, and thousands more worldwide. If you would like to find out what’s happening near you this link will… Read More International Women’s Day
Last year, on 3rd March, we had a surprise phone call. Our little grand-daughter had arrived 5 weeks early, and although she wasn’t as early as her brother, there was still cause for concern. Thankfully, mother and baby did well and were home a week later. Shortly afterwards, however, she was rushed back into hospital… Read More One Year On
On November 24th I decided that I was going to post every day for a month – and that each day I would say thank you for something. I have to admit that I didn’t think I’d be able to manage it, but here we are at Christmas Eve, and I succeeded. Although I haven’t… Read More The final day
There was some tragic news today. A young lady, with her life before her, has disappeared. Tonight there was a heart-wrenching appeal by her parents.
