Sometimes you compromise to the point of forgetting who the real you is.... don't let this happen. You want Chinese, he wants Indian ... one of you can compromise your first choice and that would be classed as civil; working together for the bigger picture. Try not, however, to change your whole personality or outlook… Continue reading Don’t lose yourself..
Oh the irony.... today marks this achievement, if it can be described as one:- 100 posts, with varying levels of interest to you - and, believe it or not, containing over 23,000 words in 2018 posts alone which could have (should have?) gone on the manuscript! But I've enjoyed blogging and in essence, the mini… Continue reading Happy Sunday Afternoon… 🖌
I'm not ignoring you; I'm lost already in my new read - JoJo Moyes' 'Me Before You'. The lion told me to do it - he's very convincing, look! He must have heard my silent calls to myself about writing a novel!! 👌🏼
Go away ... I'm busy writing ...
I've always loved nice nails. Today I've had them painted purple. Having had horses in my life from my early twenties for the following quarter century, I knew what having broken chipped nails at the end of chapped hands felt like. It wasn't girly. They were the hands of hard work. But I welcome the… Continue reading The streets are paved with purple nails 💜

A Happy Heart This link takes you to a lovely post up today from Anna Rymer. When our reading time is so limited during awake hours, to find a treasure like this leaves me feeling glad I read, not irritated I wasted my time. I hope you enjoy it too 💙
Wanted to mark the end of the weekend with you.. here, one mouthful for me and one for you; open wide! Actually, I've got a headache, a full-on beastie migraine. So maybe we can recreate that scene from '9 1/2 Weeks' another time (does this phone keyboard not have fractions?). I do suffer with migraines… Continue reading Strawberries & Cream…. let’s just pop that on your tongue 🍓🍓💋💋
Happy Sunday lovelies... I've been thinking about how I missed you yesterday, while I also thought of; 1. Adding to my manuscript for the RNA deadline for August. 2. Short Story competitions (Jospeh???) - I have entered four so now I must sit back and forget about it because the closing dates are lightyears away… Continue reading Priorities and Hagrid
