I’ve always been a bit careful of cooking with herbs and spices. Truth be told, I’m a bit scared of them – as I don’t know how they fit together and how each herb and/or spice reacts with and compliments others or how the tasty flavours are made￼. But… Continue reading »
o0o I broke. Plain and simple – i broke… This past fortnight – my mind just couldn’t keep itself together anymore, and i broke… I went to the Doctor back before we went to New Zealand, just for a general annual checkup; and when we were finishing up, I… Continue reading »
o0o Breathe. You’re going to be okay.
o0o Do you do meal planning? If not – why not? I love to meal-plan, but I don’t always manage to get it done
o0o I feel like I have a million irons in the fire right now – and I’m going to need to be super-diligent of how I schedule my Life and time over the next couple of weeks, otherwise I know that I am going to seriously deplete my… Continue reading »
o0o Friends – thats todays subject! Is it just me, or do others find it incredibly hard to make super-close friends? I have a lot of people that I know that I can go have a cuppa, a meal, a wine etc with, or that I chat to with… Continue reading »
. Its a year on from my “one step at a time” post – and I’m reflecting a bit about where I am now as opposed to this time last year. Some things haven’t yet changed. I am still at my job as a Manager, I am still working… Continue reading »
. Its been a couple of weeks since my last update – and a lot has been happening about the place… The Wedding has come and gone – and yes – of course, is was beautiful, wonderful, emotional – and our youngest daughter and her husband are currently off
. I’ve been back to the house in town today, and have done some mega cleaning. All the floors have been vacuumed, and some of them mopped. The kitchen sink is sparkling like new and all the kitchen benches and the breakfast bar have been cleared and cleaned. I… Continue reading »
. Today is different. Today I got out of bed quite well rested. I had a really decent sleep last night, because it rained through the night, and i always sleep soooo much better when it rains. I have also taken a fortnight off work – which actually winds… Continue reading »
Its hard to fathom that its already been a month since the horror of not knowing if my Family was safe, following Hurricane Irma. It was just over 48hrs after the hurricane swept through Tortola, before we finally heard that our Nephew, his family and two small children were safe… Continue reading »
What a wonderful way to start my ‘me-time Monday’..!
. On reflection – the other day, I was shown a perfect example of how I know I’ve changed over the last couple of years. I had to go into town to do some shopping and plus a Physio appointment, but I was also going to the house in town… Continue reading »
. I came across the photo at the end of this post today – and it really resonated with me. Not because I needed someone to listen to me – but because I needed to listen to someone….
. I feel so incredibly lucky, and grateful today. I’m having a day at home on the Farm – which has so far consisted of doing the dishes, making bread dough, pruning the tree that has started encroaching on the driveway and
Its been a damp drizzly cold morning, so I decided to drag out the sewing machine and knock up a few things with some “leftovers”. First up was a pair of old cotton curtains that have seen better days, and are not longer of use in keeping the heat/cold out… Continue reading »
. I pretty much try to single-task these days, just so that I can be more present with whatever it is that I am doing. I know as a species we’re often quite impressed with ourselves, when we can do a myriad of chores at once, and we convince ourselves… Continue reading »
. It’s around 5pm and it won’t be long until sunset. The cool evening
As I’ve said before – I’m at the point in my Life now where there’s some things that have taken on more importance than others…one of those things is my OWN happiness. I’ve worked at my current job for almost 9 years now, and have worked my way up about… Continue reading »
If you’re anything like me – as happens when you start out afresh with something or reinvigorate an old ‘love’ for something – whether it be cooking, knitting, gardening, diy or even fixing engines – you do a lot of reading… This week I had a really weird ‘coincidence’ happen… Continue reading »
