Only one day to go until I start three glorious weeks of holidays. Twenty-one days. Twenty-one nights. Twenty-one slow mornings, coffee in hand, ahhhhh… how’s the serenity? Though I want to do lots of schlubbing around in the coming weeks, I also have a few things I want to achieve in my holidays. The BIG […]
Hello lovely people, In the creative footsteps of blogger, author, teacher, crafter and all round nice lady Pip Lincolne, it’s time to take stock: Making myself comfy on the couch. Cooking eggplant bacon. There’s a batch in the oven right now! Drinking coffee. This morning’s crema reminded me of constellations. Reading books about heart […]
Today I read a post over at BabyMac and I’m exhausted and awed by it. Sheesh, talk about WERK-ing. Hats OFF mamas. You can read Beth’s post here. I thought I’d do my own cheeky version of the same thing, and share a typical day in the life of the mythical single gal about town ensconced […]
This morning a post from my old blog came up in my Facebook memories, and I thought I’d share it here. Perhaps you can relate to it in some way? -/-/-/-/-/- It has been a pretty stressful couple of weeks, not my preferred state of being. Stuff will always frustrate me in life, that’s no […]

Has the sky ever sent you a sign?
I got one a few days ago.
Sometimes it seems that bloggers spill every thought they have on to the internet. Some spill a lot more than others do, some carefully curate every sentence and image. Each to their own I say, sitting somewhere between the two works for me. Today’s thought is this: speaking the thing that’s troubling you can be […]
Lessons in equality, from a book about trees. I just read these words: “a tree can be only as strong as the forest that surrounds it” and immediately thought of the marriage equality debate, of white supremacists and people reeling from the supposed “power shifts” they see going on in the world. If trees […]
It’s my favourite kind of Sunday – no plans, nowhere to be, no need to watch the clock. There’s room for musing, so here we are. This morning, after a sleep in, I listened to a long podcast. While that was playing I gathered up clothes, I stripped the bed, and chased dust bunnies around […]
