We have a new normal. Social distancing is a thing. I hate it. To quote Ariel: And I'm not even a people person! So I don't want to know how the extroverts feel 😦 What I DO love, is entertaining. I love planning a menu, designing a beautiful invitation, planning my colour scheme. Inviting friends… Continue reading Virtual Entertaining
John Legend says 'I love your curves and all your edges All your perfect imperfections' 2020 is the year that I will do the same. For ME. I will start loving all my curves and all my edges, all my perfect imperfections. For years I've been too skinny, too short, too young, too fat, too… Continue reading This is ME!
It is the year 2020. And I keep hearing - this will be MY year. From every-one. Some even tell ME that it will be MY year (not their's). But how. 2019 was not my year. Neither was 2018. Or 2017. So what makes 2020 so special? Why will it be MY year (and your's,… Continue reading Do you have 20/20 Vision?
New year, new start. So I started this year right (well actually I ended 2019 having started right - if that makes sense at all). It all started with leather cushions in the living room that was REALLY past their prime. I finally convinced hubby that it was the perfect time to replace it.

Yesterday I took a me day. What is a me day? It is a day where you do what YOU want to do. Nothing else. All responsibilities becomes someone else's for that day. So what did I do with all that me time? Well, first of all, I only got out of bed at… Continue reading Me Time

I just received the news that she is clean. No, not in remission, clean. The doctors can't find a trace… Continue reading JOY
As I'm sitting here typing, my issues and problems suddenly seem SO insignificant. I have just found out that a friend of mine has leukemia and that the doctors gave her three months. Don't get me wrong. I know that in your situation your problems always seem the biggest. And that the last thing you… Continue reading Sadness
Have you ever felt invisible? Like you really don't matter? As I'm sitting here, typing, I'm remembering all the times that I am there for people. Really there. You can call me day or night - if it is within my power to help you, no matter how inconvenient the time is for me, I'll… Continue reading When you feel INVISIBLE
So Mother's Day is nearly upon us. For those of you who forgot, it's the 12th of May ... I'm looking at this from (believe it or not) three perspectives. One: I am not a mother. Not by choice. I try to avoid the church services where they 'celebrate Mother's Day and every Mother gets… Continue reading To Mom, with Love
