My ramblings 🙂
My 25 Year Old Baby
Over 25 years ago, I gave birth to a new project that has been growing and improving over the years. When we lived off the land money was tight and I created a gift for my youngest daughter that became so popular it exploded quietly into an ongoing hobby business. My 25 Year Old Baby
Since my living off the land days I’ve had many years living without a garden. Last year I moved into a lovely house in Cornwall with a smallish but beautiful garden. Feeling Grateful
Who Would You Be?
Someone once asked me who I would like to be if I could be someone famous. While I wouldn’t say no to being rich, I’ve never really aspired to being famous. It just seems to be too much trouble – having the media constantly watching you and not able to pop down to the shop without a bodyguard has an air of the ridiculous about it – Who Would You Be?
I could theorize until the cows come home (?!) but sometimes there is just no logical explanation why we connect certain things with other certain things. When you hear a particular song, you may be transported back in time to an old flame or … Strange Connections
I am so blessed. As I’ve got older, birthdays have tended to be a bit quieter but this last weekend blew that right out of the window! It began on Friday when my youngest daughter and boyfriend surprised me when they flew over from the south of France and landed in my kitchen 🙂 Feeling Blessed
What with Brexit and various political leaders (?) coming and going, us Brits have had a huge dose of political stuff over the past couple of years or so. Some of it has a ring of truth, some of it is obvious propaganda and even more is pure mud-slinging. All this gets a bit tedious. Political Overload
New Writing Platform
Been busy building a new website. It started with an interest in a very well-known company and suddenly I found myself building a whole site! It’s still a freebie but time enough to upgrade. New Writing Platform
Writing of Course!
I’ve been writing professionally for years; Published and self published several books. Now I’m looking to help others write their books and get them published. I can’t guarantee an agent or publishing contract – Getting my own ideas looked at often involves a marathon of research and email rejections. 🙂 Writing of Course
Rain Forest UK
With the over-powering heat this year, the tropical paradise might not be the place you want to spend time in just now, but don’t let that put you off. The Eden Project has all sorts of wonderful stuff going on…. Rain Forest UK
How I turned into a tea snob: Afternoon tea has been a traditional English affair for centuries but over the years has been dropped in favour of a quick snack at lunchtime and a larger evening meal.
Lazy Cook Got Tasty
I am a lazy cook. My excuse is that after cooking for a family of six for years, I’m slightly allergic to kitchens… but really? Actually I used to love to bake, which is probably why I’ve been binge watching the Great British Bake Off on Netflix… ho hum…. Lazy Cook got Tasty
