– 2018/185 – random Thursday

Today I have been exceedingly productive. Go me, pat on the back, give me a cookie productive. I started off  the day by putting on working out gear with the good intention of going for a good hard walk.  Then the sky opened and I’m not the walk in the rain type so I decided […]

– 2018/182 – Oscar the cat

I’m not a cat person.  I spent all my life being allergic to cats, sneezing in their presence, itchy face and runny eyes.  Then my  parents decided to get one.  Don’t know the reasons why, and I tried really hard not to get a little annoyed at having to take antihistamines every ime I went […]

– 2018/181 – more macrame

You know the saying…  When it rains, it pours? Yeah.. that… for months I wondered aimlessly trying to get things started and not really knowing what to do and then when I decided to go back to college (albeit part time) bang!!  I get asked for commission quilts and macrame hangers and friends want to […]

– 2018/177 – small steps

Sunday morning Husband asleep.  Dog asleep.  Two teenagers asleep.  One teenager currently getting ready to go to London with friends to watch a game of American Football:  for some reason that I have yet to understand the Philadelphia Eagles are playing the Jacksonville Jaguars… in London.  Slightly baffling… or maybe it’s just me. I’m loving […]

It’s a little early, Mr M is still asleep, I’m sitting on the deck overlooking the sea.  It’s a little rough this morning and the sound of the wave crashing over the rocks below me is loud and demands attention.  It reminds you the world is alive. There’s a small green gecko sleeping on the […]

  Another day… more of the same.  I’m not complaining. Exploring with Mr M. I swear this has been put up purely to create a photo opportunity.  It’s pretty but not very comfortable. We went snorkelling.  Bonkers.  The reef/coral situation wasn’t good, apparently ‘El Nino’ destroyed most of it a few years back and yes, […]

First of all… where is the sun?? No seriously, where is it?  I’m cool with the humidity and the warm temperature… but… ahem, the sun? We arrived on the island of Mahe early morning and were a little disappointed to be welcomed by such grey skies, and then we got over ourselves and geesh… a […]

– 2019/169 – yup…

This is reality. On the counter there is a squashed mountain (because it looks smaller, pathetic, I know) of ironing to do: 2 t-shirts, one sweatshirt, and 19 shirts and one nightdress.  I counted them to maximise my sense of achievement when I’ll finally get to the end. There’s a quarter of a birthday cake […]
