 Resolution: Happy in 2018

I finally made a resolution to be happy in the coming year. That is what it is all about. I don’t know how many years I have left but in the coming year I will think more about being happy. What makes me happy and what make you happy is something we need to think […]

 What did we accomplish in 2017

Did I make the world a better place in 2017? I did little to feed the hungry, care for the sick or comfort the distressed. I do support those programs through the government and am happy to pay my taxes for those programs and I do vote for leaders who promise to support programs that […]

 “Ugly Christmas Sweaters”

I have noticed how over the past couple of years that Christmas sweaters have changed from how I remember them from years past. We were recently shopping in women’s apparel, and this lady steps out from behind a sweater rack was holding up a sweater neatly placed on a hanger in each hand. Her question […]

 Oh The Guilt !!

Hello Peeps……….I heard recently on the news its official, men are happier than women, how can this be? Well apparently women torture themselves with guilt about everything………its ingrained in us that we should always be hustling and bustling around the home, probably doing stuff that doesn’t even need doing, we feel guilty if we sit […]

 The Importance of Play

As an ex-nursery school teacher, I’ve ready many books about learning, and implemented many methods. One of the most important ways to teach young children is by play. Hard subjects and new skills are more easily digested when cloaked in singing, dancing, and games. That’s a way to build their self-esteem. Did you know that […]

 Musings From A Muse

I haven’t been here in a long time.  Much has happened.  I’m divorced, living in a brand new apartment.  It’s taken awhile to feel worthy of being in the space I am.  Why are we so hard on ourselves?  I have a male friend who is the opposite.  He has a grandiose idea of himself.  […]


Put rather bluntly, we all have a reptile brain, called the hypothalamus, that controls the hormones of our endocrine system: This brain is about the size of a walnut and It has been programmed by millions of years of evolution to ensure the survival of the species: It keeps us alive when in a coma […]

 I’m Gutted….

Well today I have been told as from next year Glitter is to be banned…… environmental issue apparently……….I cannot exist without glitter and sparkle in my life ( well maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration )……….. I am as attracted to it as  Jackdaws are to shiny objects………I have an inbuilt sensor that draws me to […]

 What’s your goal this week?

Assuming you have one… (My goal is that I don’t let myself get so caught up in everything I want to do – that I forget to enjoy what I’m doing!) Of course, life has thrown me a curve ball, so now i’m sick in bed. It’s not really fair. I spent all last week […]

 Why all the fuss?

I was brought up in central Scotland in the 50’s and 60’s so my first real contact with people of a different race was at 18 in the army. Now there was a lot of prejudice about, but as I’d never met anyone other than white I decided to do what I always did and […]
