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?
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…
Yesterday I binged watched The Goop Lab with Gwyneth Paltrow whilst munching my way through 1/2 a packet of chocolate peanuts (that weren't that nice by the way, but hey, it was chocolate!). Poor old Gwyneth gets a lot of stick (just read the article above). But I thoroughly enjoyed it, and learnt a lot.… Continue reading Netflix & Chomp
A couple of days ago I read a blog post by the lovely Sandra Madeira, where she mentioned a Podcast by Dr Rangan Chattergee, who is a GP and author. Now, I do love a podcast, so I eagerly scanned the episodes, hoping to find something relevant to me. And what do you know...Episode 11… Continue reading Back to School
My daughter bought me some Lush stuff for Christmas, so yesterday I used the bath bomb to have a soak. Since I've been taking the CBD oil (which I can HIGHLY recommend by the way) I've found that on a good day, I can actually get in and out of the bath unassisted. It's a… Continue reading Not Quite Marilyn…
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 listened to a podcast last month (sorry I cant remember which one) where the guest was Hannah Papp. She talked about her book, The Mystical Backpacker and her adventures. It piqued my interest...so I ordered the book and have been reading it ever since. Last night (while the husband was watching TV) I took… Continue reading What If?
Yesterday I was a chess widow, so I decided to curl up on the sofa with the Puggies and watch a film. I'm a huge fan of black and white movies, but after a quick search I stumbled across a collection of old Hitchcock films, and chose to watch Rear Window with James Stewart and… Continue reading At The Movies
A few weeks ago I watched a video of science fiction writer Ray Bradbury giving a talk at a university. If you're a writer its definitely work a watch, but it is an hour long. One thing (amongst the many things) that Mr Bradbury said that I liked was his advice to read one short… Continue reading The Art of the Essay
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
