Sing a Song of …?

Ever wondered what your choice in music says about you? No, I can't say I've given it much thought before either ... yet music has always mattered to me. I'm not a follower of fashion - which my choice clearly says πŸ˜‰ I don't listen to music radio, so adding something new to my playlists... Continue Reading →

Saying sorry

Or how to do it properly ... I didn't learn how to make a proper apology till very late in life. I've been rubbish at it for most of my life, doing the equivalent of that small child being forced to say "I'm sorry" - even when I've truly felt it and meant it. Now... Continue Reading →

Each of those photo contained a small crocheted heart with a handwritten tag... Continue Reading →

Seriously, I've always found bus timetables in the UK totally incomprehensible, and have travelled in... Continue Reading →

2020: A Reading Review

Last year was a weird year for many reasons, but what I didn't expect was how much of an negative impact it would have on my reading. In all honesty, the numbers don't matter a jot, for everyday life will always have an impact on the amount of time each of us have for reading.... Continue Reading →

Design your Dream Home

When you get the opportunity to design a home, it tends to be about the practicalities - the space available, potential restrictions on materials and style of building, needs versus wants, and of course - cost. Rather than being practical, I thought I'd talk about those aspects of homes I've seen in the past which... Continue Reading →
