Support not sympathy is key to being helpful

Support not sympathy is key to being helpful

It is a funny old thing life isn’t it, I look around and everyone seems to have something to contend with one way or another. It is degree’s of levels of course but it still something however small or large they have to deal with. I guess today I am writing this as it is kind of a few observations. Not only from what helps me but what you see working for other people too. I … Read entire article »

Step by step for here

My poor brain feels like it is about to overspill. I have several things I need to do, well need equals want. But so much stuff buzzing in my brain to think. I am sorry but as much as us women like to think we can multi-task I for one am happy to confess I can’t. My mind is buzzing from Blog On Cymru and I need to write it up but instead of getting … Read entire article »

Monday Mutters – Good times to carry you through

Monday Mutters – Good times to carry you through

Having a good time is something we all need but how often do we really get it. Like really get it! Friday I went out with one of my dog walking buddies, we laugh, chat, talk about good and the not so good things that go on in our lives on our dog walks. So it seemed silly not to meet up in a more social situation with me not having to go off in … Read entire article »

B & W 5 day challenge

B & W 5 day challenge

The lovely Viv from 76 Sunflowers (pop over there she has some gorgeous photo’s) challenged me to do 5 black & white photo’s over 5 day’s. I have to confess never doing black and white photo’s due to many things: 1. I am lazy, I snap re-size and off it goes. I edit none of my photo’s, I know they would be so much better if I did. *Note to self: Must try harder 2. I love … Read entire article »

The benefits of softer water

The benefits of softer water

Water, water I love you, where would be without water! When we moved to Cornwall I was rewarded with a lovely soft water out of the taps. Hardly any washing up liquid needed, only a little to shampoo to wash our hair, no salt in the dishwasher, no limescale in the kettle, no limescale in the sink, no limescale in the bath, no limescale on the shower doors. no lime scale at all! Mind the … Read entire article »

Pop up restaurant with a difference

Pop up restaurant with a difference

Food and poker what a combination. Though actually far from a gambler myself I have a soft spot for a game of poker from some quite funny memories from my younger years, possibly best not shared here today. But poker can be lots of fun unless you are playing it in some back street club ‘Lock, stock and two smoking barrels’ kind of style then perhaps it is not! Anyway I totally love this idea of … Read entire article »

Monday Mutters – It is good to talk

It is good to talk, I am sure that was an old B.T advert. All to true that how having a chat with someone can really help. Life these day’s is stressful, my life is stressful and what helps me cope is talking to people. Not holding things in and keeping them to myself. In return I am thankful that people also talk to me. The art of listening is something that I have perfected … Read entire article »
