A TINY TRIP TO LONDON..

It has been quite some time since I wrote anything for my blog. The whole month of May was taken up with The Bug which both I and my husband managed to go down with. We seemed to spend a lot of time huddled up in blankets and our constant companions were large boxes of … Continued



SOME RANDOM SCENES TO CHEER THE SOUL PERHAPS…

I have been unwell for the past days and am only just feeling the energy within me move in a more positive way. I do not get ill often but when I do my body really does it well! I simply collapsed and took to my bed..for days it seems now as I gaze back. … Continued



JUST ANOTHER WALK!

We are now well on our way towards February! I have had a wee break from pretty well everything or so it seems. I actually have been massaging and teaching yoga as normal and somewhere along the way I kind of lost track of time. The thing is that the week between Christmas and New … Continued



SOME THOUGHTS ON A FROSTY MORNING….

Sunday, and a quiet day after our lovely Christmas Day with family and then the unexpected blizzard on our motorway trip home. I woke feeling a deep sadness, a dream I couldn’t recollect? Or simply the need to feel. Whatever the reason ┬áthe day was simply beautiful. The sky, a deep blue, the air still … Continued



OUR ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS TREE.

In the Northern Hemisphere daylight is short lived and indeed, the further north you travel the shorter the days become. … Continued



A SHORT WALK AROUND A TINY PART OF MANCHESTER!

The afternoon went splendidly. Sunday was bright, blue and chilly, in other words a near perfect winter’s day. At breakfast I was asked by … Continued

Hugh Masekela is 75 years old and I have loved his music for the past 30 years when I was introduced to him by friends whilst living in The Lowveld of Zimbabwe. Monday evening was filled … Continued



A WALK BY THE LAKE….

It’s about a month since we were seeing the sun rise over the mountains. Riva del Garda was our home for that week. It lies at the northernmost end of Lake Garda. We walked every day. Sometimes it was alongside this beautiful body of water and on other days we went off into the mountains … Continued



LOVE…

A few short weeks ago our beautiful daughter, Katie married the lovely Hamish. Their wedding was a wonderful celebration which was enjoyed by many and we, the parents who actually did very little, are still being thanked by so many lovely people. Between them they planned and put together a day that was very personal … Continued



A WALK IN THE DERBYSHIRE PEAKS.

Spring arrived here in the UK and with it an idea began to form in my husband’s brain. He has for several years wanted to do more walking in the Peak District and now that he is retired and ‘has the book’ he decided to sit down and plan our route. The inspiration came from … Continued
