There was a conversation today with Paul, a friend of mine, where he confessed that he couldn't really get excited about New Year's Eve and I agreed. In fact if I am really honest, I don't like it. There is... Continue reading

Today marks the entry into the second half-century of my time on the planet. Funny, but somehow having given no thought whatsoever to it before today, I find myself feeling that it is some kind of threshold. More so than... Continue reading

Not the first thing that springs to mind when you picture sophisticated dining is it? The jacket potato? Though personally, I always do feel they have an air of luxury about them. Which might be down to the fact that... Continue reading

If you have heard the sound before, the noise that the burners of a hot air balloon make is unmistakeable. And whenever I hear it I run outside to look heavenward and wave. They probably don't see - I'm sure... Continue reading

Scenes from my evening walk to share with you today. At the moment I feel very grateful to be living in our village - fewer people, plenty of access to open spaces and a solid sense of community. They all... Continue reading

If you asked me where in the house I am happiest, the answer would always be in the kitchen - it's my lair, my domain, where I can be king of all I survey. And it is also the place... Continue reading

The thing about extraordinary times is so often, the days within them have an air of ordinariness. And so I find it during this Coronavirus event. As a family, we have been hunkered down for about a week now. Not... Continue reading

Sometimes, we get out of the habit of doing things - it's not that we don't like them any more, it's just that life is a busy place and sometimes other things take priority. And so it has been with... Continue reading

Ready for another tale from my in-box? Here it is. An email from Waitrose. Now before we start, can I just say how much I adore Waitrose. I go there pretty much every single day. Partly because I have two... Continue reading

There was an email in my inbox this morning from Flickr. Change is coming. Charges for over a thousand photographs. I've been part of Flickr since 2006, but I only upload there selectively - I haven't put a photo on... Continue reading

This afternoon, I spent a happy half hour setting up a blog for a new friend. She is heading off on an adventure to faraway places, but didn't want to broadcast her absence by sharing photos on Facebook. And what... Continue reading

I'm pleased you're embracing the random. And at least taking pictures of what you draw before you recycle them!! Perhaps you should sprinkle them randomly about your neighbourhood - like found lists, but better - I'd be so thrilled to come across a piece of artwork someplace unexpected.
It must be something in the air, but this Christmas the teenagers (mine and my brother's) seemed to decide on mass to hang out with us oldies. It was entertaining company for sure. Long may it last!

You know already that I love it - and you can never have enough mittens, in my book!
Our sad tree needs to go too. Kids are off till Monday though and I'm still in holiday slump, so nothing is getting done. On the plus side, reading is happening!

You are good. I can't even seem to get out of my warm pit to kick the eldest out of his to commence yet more revision. I am pig sick of revision and I haven't even had to do it. Poor child. It has meant we have not strayed too far from home or done anything at all exciting in case he feels he is missing out. I've embraced sloth rather embarrassingly enthusiastically - it has been lovely (on the whole)!

I have a feeling that your space will be the birthplace of many more wonderful things, Megan. Enjoy x

I have a feeling Amy is going to have the best half term week of all! What beautiful moments you captured this week, Julie. Hope next week brings plenty too. Perhaps being different is what makes them special.

Your home has such an air of tranquility about it Julie! I resolved to drink more water and work on my tennis goals - mixed success, but I'm still trying with both and that, to me, seems the most important thing.

That orange one is scary! I still mourn the gloves I lost with the silver fingertips that let me use my phone without taking them off. Think I left them in a shop....

I have sewn a loop on mine (through the handle) clearly stamped with the word FABRIC in big black letters. Woe betide anyone who uses them for other things....

1. You are awesome 2. What sadistic teacher sets that as homework? 3. Can we be fitbit friends?
