 What Is Your Preference?

Are you living a comfortable life, caged life or maybe a charged one? Have you ever said to a friend, that you have a great idea to write a book, and they’ve said you are crazy for even thinking you could? Well, like many folks I’m sure, this has happened to me. It took me […]

 New Hobbies

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved Charles Rennie Mackintosh. When I was in high school I was fortunate enough to take Saturday morning classes at The Glasgow School of Art, which is known for being one of the most famous Mackintosh buildings in the world. In these classes, we got […]

 How do you get your own way?

That sounds evil and conniving, doesn’t it, and somewhat Machiavellian.  Yet, aren’t there times when getting your own way is necessary, and has many positive benefits? My 9-year-old grandson spent the night.  With everyone else in the universe, on Friday nights, he’s lights out and in bed at 9 o’clock – voluntarily. When he’s here, […]

 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 […]

 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.  […]

This blog kind of follows on from LoneRogue’s last blog and some of the replies it inspired.  We all know that sometimes ‘the home’ is  perhaps the only answer. That said most people view the notion with distaste. Number one it is not ‘a home’, not your home. You will have to fit into an […]

 Reflections….and now it’s Winter

You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I […]

 On being Careful

This is a fun blog, I had a friend sat in my kitchen and she was amused to see me cut open a tube of tomato paste to get the last bit. I told her I always cut tubes especially those plastic tubes, I get an extra week of toothpaste this way LOL! My friend […]

 Breakups And What We Learned

Who has not been “ITCHING LIKE A MAN IN A FUZZY TREE “, then at HEARTBREAK HOTEL”? Sounds funny, but they are not funny at all. The mating game may be as basic as “the birds and bees’ but we humans think we are supposed to be very rational anyway, or too many of us […]
