I had fun yesterday...I did some indoor gardening. I bought some plants for my bottle garden, but ended up with too many. So then I had to find another pot/bowl for the poor plant that didn't make the bottle. So it all worked out well in the end, and I loved getting my hands dirty.… Continue reading Green Fingers?
In The Happiness Project, (love that book!) Gretchen Rubin talks about tackling a nagging task and how it can boost your mood when you get it done. Blimey...I have so many of these that I don't even know where to start lol. But hey, you just gotta start somewhere with something, right? Late last year… Continue reading The Nagging Task
A couple of days ago I dug out a book I've had for years and never actually read *whoops* Years ago I used to do collages, and I love being arty, especially if it's something for the house. I've finally started reading it and the first idea/project is to create a boat. I'm not a… Continue reading Being Crafty
It's been a hectic and stressy few days. I don't feel like I've had a minute to myself and self care has been very thin on the ground *sighs* Back in 2007 I bought a brass sign from eBay as I wanted something to put up in our (then) hallway. I'd always planned to paint… Continue reading Isn’t It Ironic…
My Nan would make Bread Pudding almost weekly. If there was a lot of stale bread that week, we'd get one. I thought it was something invented during the war (WWII), but it turns out its been around since the 11th Century and was called "Poor Mans Pudding" lol. Anyway, today, I made one. I've… Continue reading Childhood Memories
It seems like every time I go online or watch TV someone is talking about Netflix or Amazon Prime, catch up or boxed sets. What we should be bingeing on at the moment. Its crazy how life has changed in the last few years. I wont harp on about remembering the days when we had… Continue reading Binge Watching
I've been a music lover since I was a child, probably helped by my Grandfather, who would often get up on a Sunday morning, rummage through his record collection and play Nat King Cole, Perry Como or Andy Williams at full blast lol. Recently, i've rediscovered songs from my childhood, songs that my Grandfather played.… Continue reading Songs
Last night was our monthly Mermaids Writing Group meeting. About 4 times a year we have a guest speaker, and last night we welcomed the lovely Peter Jones to our meeting, as an honorary Mermaid 😉 I've known Peter since 2011, when I first met him at Swanwick (the writers summer school) where I bought… Continue reading Fabulous Evening!
No...I didn't have a mud face pack yesterday, or one of those all over body treatments. I spent the morning in a muddy field with 31 Pugs lol. Lynda at Puppydogtails Academy, hosts the Pug meets once a month. Chatting to fellow "Pug Parents" is great fun and seeing my fur babies run around with… Continue reading Mud!
Yesterday afternoon we sat down (me and the husband that is) and booked all the sites we want to go to from March until October in the Motorhome. We haven't been away since October last year. Not because we didn't want to, but having 3 dogs, all wet and muddy in a space thats 23… Continue reading The Adventures We’ll Have
