How to recover a day 

Eat Cadbury flake ice-cream and watch a film.  We went with Sleepless in Seattle. (affiliate link) It was good. (Yes, I’d seen it before. Big hadn’t. I had been remiss.) You can substitute something else if you really have to, although I feel the chocolate is important 🙂

What’s it all for?

When I started blogtember, it was to kick start my writing again. And it’s worked – I’ve blogged every day in September. It also hasn’t worked, because sitting at the kitchen table at 11 o clock at night, drooping with tiredness and yet not willing to go to bed because I haven’t blogged isn’t doing […]

Sunday morning coming down

(From a run. A 25 minute run at that. )

Saturday snippets 16th September 2017

{reading} the Loneliest Girl in the universe (affiliate) Which is so good! Full review in a few days when I’ve finished reading it. (The reviews on Amazon talk about a twist. I haven’t got to a twist. Will keep you posted.) {doing} one thing. My todo list is in a state of terminal overwhelm, so today I […]

Colour my grey day

Right now I’m really enjoying photography, and particularly sharing it on Instagram, where there are some wonderful communities you can join in with by tagging your pictures. I thought I’d share a few of my favourites here. #colourmygreyday is for those days when you need a pop of colour. This evening’s picture, taken during this […]

The eyes have it

Sorry. I’ve had one of those days when there were too many words and ideas to be able to get focus on any of them. Which leaves me feeling kind of worn out and pathetic. So instead of chasing myself in circles, I’m going to go to bed and hope I wake up less cluttered […]

My top 5 movies

Post comtains affiliate links As part of the Blogtember challenge, today Katie, Hannah and I are talking movies. The suggestion was top 5 Disney titles, but I honestly couldn’t think of 5 films that I knew were Disney and I loved, so I’ve just gone for a generic top 5. Until the middle of last […]

Prisoner of Ice and Snow by Ruth Lauren

When 13-year-old Valor is sent to jail, she couldn’t be happier. Demidova’s prison for criminal children is exactly where she wants to be. Valor’s twin sister, Sasha, is serving a life sentence for stealing from the royal family, and Valor is going to help her escape…from the inside. Never mind that no one has escaped […]

Deschooling – a continual process

I can parrot off the law regarding education – something like a parent of a child of school age shall cause the child to receive a full time education, suitable to age, ability and aptitude. I can go further and say that a suitable education is one that fits a child for a life in […]

Slow Sunday

I woke up this morning stiff and full of pain. I should have done week 6 day 3 of couch to 5 k – there was no way that was happening. Instead it took me nearly two hours to stagger about hanging out two loads of washing with frequent rests, and by the time I’d […]
