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

I know its really a summer thing, but yesterday I needed to be reminded that summer will come, and the yellow of the lemons cheered me up a little bit. I followed a… Continue reading When Life Gives You Lemons…
Yesterday I sat down and tried to write my bucket list...again lol. I had one, years ago, and I even knocked a few items off that list. But its been a while since i've even thought about it. Having a Bucket list can improve your life (apparently), and I have to admit, I really enjoyed… Continue reading My Bucket List
Yesterday I went up to London with a friend to see a talk given by writer Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl With A Pearl Earring (amongst her many other books). It was a lovely day (even with the tube closures!) and Ms Chevalier was both inspiring and interesting. I came away realising that research doesn't… Continue reading Inspiration
When my kids were little I would buy them colouring books and pencils/pens. We'd all sit down for a colouring in session...but within 20 minutes, i'd be the one left colouring while they'd all gone off to find something more interesting to do lol As a child, I was never much good at drawing, but… Continue reading Colouring for Adults
I love to chat...probably too much lol. When I was at school I was always getting in trouble for not listening and chatting to my friends *sniggers* Yesterday I met a friend for coffee at Baskervilles Coffee House. It's a great place...small...very friendly staff and good food (Gluten free & Vegan cakes!). Their Avocado on… Continue reading A Good Old Natter
