Refined You!

fullsizerenderI love this quote. Tomorrow is a the start of a new year, a new book, a new chapter, a new sentence … a new segment of life sliced out ready to journey. But it’s important we recognise it is just a new part, it’s not a completely new start. Already I’m seeing so many ‘new year, new you’ posts and it amazes me that so many people get swept into the ‘new me’ mentality. You are intrinsically you for a reason, you are fearfully and wonderfully made .. to be you and that, you should be proud of!

Love This Christmas

 

christmas-gift-snowman-winter-favim-com-124529_largeI am currently sitting in my lounge, in my pyjamas, snuggled under a blanket with a glass of red wine. The fire is on, the candles are lit and the fairy lights are twinkling on the tree. The house is clean and tidy, the food shopping has been done, the gifts are wrapped and nestled under the tree, and for the first time in a good few years I am ready to enjoy the Christmas festivities a week ahead of the big day itself.  Continue reading


Walking The Tightrope of Perspective

img_6751Perspective. A way of regarding or seeing something. It sounds so simple, so easy. But maintaining and holding the right perspective sometimes can be so difficult. I took these two photographs at the beach back in the Summer and have often reflected on how important it is to hold the right perspective at the right time.

An Autumn Catch-Up

writing-toolsI’ve done it again. I meant to write but I didn’t.

I meant to write about the time I was driving to work, was stopped in traffic and through the hazy early morning sunshine saw a rabbit munching on grass by the side of the road. I meant to write about how in that moment I admired that rabbit for having no fear whatsoever, for nonchalantly ignoring all the cars, lorries and loud motorcycles that were driving past and for merely getting on with the task in hand, breakfast.

The Honour of Daughtering

10458037_10152071427615703_1923623355232397623_nIt’s the 1st of July. The first day of a new month. The midpoint of the year. The day we should really be able to say Summer has come. It’s also my parents’ wedding anniversary. Their 44th anniversary to be precise. And, as their daughter I’m incredibly proud of that. Everyday, I class myself as blessed that I was fortunate enough for them to become my parents and I love the fact they’ve made it this far together through life. Because life isn’t easy for anyone.

Spring Thoughts

hello-may-image1

It’s the middle of May. How did that happen? How did it get to even be the beginning of May in the first place, when I was planning on posting a blog, and then suddenly go to being the middle of May? Time really does so easily slip away.

I’ve finally found a few minutes to sit down and write. The door is locked, I’m in for the evening, the glass of wine is poured and I’m here. There are two half-written blogs in my drafts folder but they are both for another day.  Continue reading


Blowing Away The Cobwebs

Today I blew away some cobwebs in more ways than one.

I haven’t written for a long time and it’s been even longer than that since I’ve written with any kind of regularity. In that time a few things have changed. Well, actually a lot has changed. I’ve changed my car, added to my shoe collection and bought a coffee machine, all of which have brought no end of happiness and new experiences to my life. It’s true to say there have been some other changes too but we don’t need to talk about those. Continue reading
