‘Captured Moments’

‘Moments’ – are sometimes elusive – those special moments that I cherish – long for – those times – alone – to rest – recharge – those times just for myself. I find that in the business of life it can be so difficult to ‘capture those moments’ – resulting in frustration and disappointment –…

‘A Lesson From Life’

There’s one thing that’s very clear to me – and that is – I have never stopped learning – and hopefully never will. There is always some new lesson for me to learn – some are simple – others much harder. They are mostly the’ lessons of life’ The lesson I am learning just now…

‘A Lesson In Patience’

I should have known better! – but I was too impatient – for I had a garden to plant lovely new plants and flowers. Having lived for just over three years where – although we did have a garden – I couldn’t plant anything because there were so many rabbits – that didn’t just dig…

‘No Pain – No Gain’

I’m sure this quote – “No pain – no gain” has been uttered by many this week – as Gyms were opened once more and muscles exercised in a way they had not been for a long time. Our son went – eager to use some of the equipment and machines to build up and…

‘Around The Table’

As we look to the end of this long ‘lockdown period’ – I guess for many – the thought of being able to sit around a table – with family and friends – is one of the things we look forward to the most. The opening up of our cafes and restaurants – the opportunity…

‘A Tribute’

‘Clearing The Way’

How we enjoyed those sunny days over the past weekend – it was such a blessing – not only simply to enjoy – but allowing us to get into the garden and begin some clearing up. Having only recently moved here – this was the first opportunity to get out there and really see what…
