Recently, I wrote about receiving a sign, and about yielding. You can catch up on that post here. What I’ve realised since then is that though I may be willing to acknowledge the sign in the sky, and though I feel broadly clued in to what the sign points to, I am well and […]
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 […]
Hello all! Happy weekend to you! What’s cooking? Speaking of cooking, I have been wanting to share a little bit about my new eating regime. There’s a sentence I never expected to type. I’ve now been following a low sodium path for almost three months. You know what they say; time flies when your heart’s […]

Today I decided to wrangle the stuff, stuff, stuff and nonsense in my bathroom. The first thing I discovered was that the shelves in my bathroom cabinet have an almost […]
Trees have a kind of magical power in my life. (Thank you, Enid Blyton!) When I look at them, I gain perspective. Summer trees aren’t better than winter trees, because it’s not about the number of leaves a tree has, its about the tree itself. A tree is tenacious, strong, grounded, life giving. It doesn’t […]
Hello friends! I’m a super slapdash blogger these days, but never mind, here I am again. My Sunday matinee of choice, which I’m watching while wrapped up like a giant pink burrito in my exceedingly cosy (and very pink!) dressy gown, is Julie & Julia. Have you seen it? It is a charming film about […]
Hello friends, I’m glad you’re here. I want to tell you a bit of news. Almost two weeks ago, my GP sent me off for some tests, after I went to see her complaining of increasing shortness of breath. She mmmm-ed in a concerned way as she listened to my chest, and that mmmm confirmed […]
