If We Had A Lemonade… Sunday 26th, September 2021

Oh dear! It’s one more month and I am 51. How did that happen???? We have used the last week to start downsizing our home. So for today’s #WeekendCoffeeShare from the lovely Natalie, I am keeping it short. I can’t share too much yet. But please come in have a lemonade, tea, coffee or hot chocolate and have some biscuits. Yes, the date and walnut ones ๐Ÿ™‚ I am not bothered by my age. To be honest, despite the major health issue last year I feel better than ever before. But I do wonder, how on earth all this time Read More

Let’s listen and write (25th September 2021)

Happy Saturday everybody. Please get your pens, pencils or keyboards out and join us in a little writing adventure. This is a stream of consciousness writing prompt so grammar does not matter.

So please, if you feel like it, let your inner storyteller write through you and share his or her story with us. Here is the prompt: I invite you to listen to your Read More

To Own Or Not To Own, That Is The Question!

Hello and happy Friday, despite everything. Do you like to own or borrow the books you read? This question is a lot on my mind currently because the husband and I are downsizing our home. And we have many, many books. So many, in fact, that we jokingly call our front room “the library”. Many of them are given to me by my family and are old but not particularly valuable. Owning these gives me a connection to my family both those who live far apart as well as those who have passed away. It makes me feel at home Read More

Happy Ending?

Hello dear readers, happy Wednesday to you all. I do not quite know what to think of this quote: Pantsters will love it I guess, but for planners, that’s a nightmare.

If We Had A Lemonade… Sunday 12th, September 2021

Bonjour dear readers, and happy Sunday despite everything. The lovely Natalie again so kindly invited us to her #WeekendCoffeeShare. Please come in have a lemonade, tea, coffee or hot chocolate and have some date and walnut biscuits. I never liked dates when I was younger but when the husband made a date and walnut bread a couple of years ago I totally fell for the combination. Then I experimented with my basic cookie recipe and I loved it too. I found the original recipe on a blog many many moons ago but lost the card where I wrote down the Read More
