And remarkably, no one died!

I’ve just spent the entire day working at a client’s premises and guess what? No one died. Nup. All four other family members are still alive and kicking. They all managed to get through their days without needing me to check where they’d placed their shoes, sweater, keys, mobile charger… They’d all managed to eat,…

R.I.P Bridget Jones

When I was cast abruptly back onto the dating scene at the tender age of 38 I learnt very quickly that you could tell a lot about a man from what he thought of Bridget Jones. It didn’t matter that Bridget Jones wasn’t real. What mattered was that the Bridget Jones story embodied what so…

Hey,hey, hey, hey

In case you were wondering here’s the music that inspired the last post. It’s been going through my mind for the past few days now. “Don’t you forget about me, don’t, don’t don’t don’t you,  but you walk on by..will you call my name as you walk on by, will you call my name when…

They’ve all lied. Julie Andrews and the rest – life isn’t rainbows, or mittens or kittens. NO matter how…

Inspiration is everywhere

It’s been a tough week, changing seasons it’s sometimes like that. Hubby’s been ill and I’ve been struggling under the strain. Add in a few work problems and exhaustion and I’ve crumbled a little. It’s OK. I’m allowed. Things don’t always have to be perfect. That’s why we have seasons. There’s a beauty in each…

Good Morning

I’ve always been a little cynical about the whole ‘attract it and it’ll come’ view of the world. After all, I’ve been thinking positive thoughts about Mercedes Benz cars coming my way for decades now and I haven’t seen one in my driveway yet. In fact my driveway is a tad empty currently. Our faithful…
