Change Brings Mental Clarity


The last few days have been very informing for me.  As I watched Dancing on Ice last night, stretched out on the sofa, I was gradually moved around the room like a chess piece as the remainder of the carpet was cut up and removed quite literally from under me.  Strange certainly, enjoyable certainly not. I’ll rewind about 10 days to reveal the source of the upheaval.  The ever-listening Universe has provided me with a new lounge carpet, something I’ve […] Read more »

Letting Go And Finding Balance


It’s taken many years but I feel able to cheerfully announce that I am healed!  Why so?  I wasn’t looking forward to it but I’ve been back to the storage depot with my brother and sorted the remainder of the treasures which belonged to my Mum and Dad. You’d have been proud of me, tackling the job with a very positive mental attitude.  We sorted through a mountain of boxes, saving a few books for bookworm Daughter to read – bought her a Kindle […] Read more »

Swift Vet Visiting


I’ll write this very quietly to avoid alarm in the basket behind me.  We went to the V-E-T . . .schuush . . . !  Had been putting it off but daughter came home at the weekend and was unimpressed by the procrastination.  Smacked wrist pour moi.  Ruff, aging Persian fluffball, has been seriously under-achieving with his scratchpost activities and it was time for Alfred’s doggy disease inhibiting vaccine. Seizing time by the throat while daughter went to raid a bank decided […] Read more »

It’s All In My Cancerian Stars – Yes, Really!


I had a fascinating session with astrologer Sally Kirkman  today when she revealed what’s in the Stars for me and, more spectacularly, identified some major happenings which had been predicted by the Heavens.  Frankly, I’m amazed.   Let me explain. In an earlier blog I mentioned a near-death experience in 2007.  Details are too gorey to reveal but let’s just say necrotic and gangrenous bowel and abdominal wall featured heavily in the story to give a flavour of what went on.  Well (said in […] Read more »

Grieve And Then Let Go…


I’m procrastinating.  There’s something I have to do which I started but haven’t yet found the strength to complete.  It will be the end, a final amen. But time does heal, you know?  Recently, I went through some boxes of things which belonged to Mum and Dad and which have been in storage for years.  The first time I looked at them, I was unable to part with anything as every single item held such fond memories.  Last time I went,  I found something I’d been looking for and was able to allocate other […] Read more »

Five Things You Don’t Know About Me…


I’m enjoying membership of a blogging group at the moment which is encouraging me to dust off the quill and start writing again. Just for fun, we’re each revealing five things about ourselves which nobody knows – truthfully, I’d almost forgotten them myself!  So, having trawled through the decades, here goes: 1.  I was once the Under 5s Junior Shark Fishing Champion.  Yes, you did read that correctly.  As a child born to military nomads, we spent  our early years living in foreign lands.  […] Read more »
