Change is Inevitable

Looking Over a Bridge

Loss of Curiosity

We’re delving into the oddities of my brain again. Something that has been swirling lately, is the distinct lack of curiosity that seems to be enveloping the world around us.

You Don’t Have To Be Trendy

Crocheting

OK, I felt like that had to be said out loud.  I sometimes want to shout it a bit.  We all see it on various social platforms, the latest XYZ thing.  I get it, I most definitely have been sucked into the hype of new things in the past.  I probably will in the future.  […]

Moving to the Countryside?

Looking Right Red Wall

It’s been a few months now since we moved to the wilds of Suffolk after 10 years in Brighton.  I was born and bred in the countryside, so this felt like coming home.  I’m aware that there is a fairytale like thought about what life is like when you move to the countryside, so I […]

Life Update: Where Are We? What Are We Doing? What Are Our Plans?

So we’re back in England now for a few weeks, it took about a week to settle and I had jet lag a few days after we arrived – bit annoying really! We’re settling back to “normal” life. In saying that, we’re currently staying with Simon’s mum until we find our feet – Simon is […]

10 Things That Make Me Happy

Lately I’ve been caught up in either work, moving out of the flat, or getting our travels organised.  This has meant my blogging has taken a bit of a side line…plus I feel like a bit of a whirling dervish, except much less graceful.  So I thought it would be nice to sit down, listen […]

Empty house at Christmas?

Home Security at Christmas

I doubt I’m alone in travelling at Christmas.  I’ve been visiting family – either mine or my husband’s for about 17years…wow that seems like a long time, surely I’m not that old?!  I moved out at 18 and never moved back in, I’ll let you do the maths there.   So the flights and car […]
