It’s here. The bit we didn’t get last year, because, rain. These days between Christmas and new year. I used to find them an unbearable waste of time between key nights-out where there was a void filled only by roses chocolates and end of year review shows. Now they are blissful days of deep midwinter,… Continue reading The Midwinter Pause
I’m REALLY lucky. I live in a city that people visit on their holidays. I’m not from here, but I’ve been here 12 years. When I first moved here, I loved that had everything a city has to offer, but also a compact, cosy feel. You see familiar faces, you are not oppressed by loads… Continue reading #BEDN York my hometown

So, blogging. Bloggers. “Blog-tastic” is a word my friend and I use when we feel pleased with ourselves or something about our life. It’s a bit smug, and bit sarcastic and a bit pokey. After all, we are just normal women with normal lives, not fabulous yummy-mummies…

I jiggled the pram a bit and made some excuses… Continue reading Hands off my baby please!

Not for me I’m afraid, but remind me of that in a few months time, when the little one off the boob… Continue reading #BEDN Food Glorious Food
Autumn is all about light for me. Nature seems to have conspired all year – first the light that puts the colour into the leaves by photosynthesis, and then the way the tilting of the earth lends a dreamy quality to the light and it filters through the leaves in all their technicolour splendour. Here… Continue reading Light
I stumbled upon the Blog Every Day in November challenge set by rosalilium.com and it seemed like a good idea to jolt me into actually posting. I have several drafts for posts that are half written, but I feel a bit stunted and want to just put something out there. The list of suggested topics… Continue reading Something I made
I’m in a bit of a career limbo at the moment… I have made the decision to close my therapy business, and will shortly return to teaching a couple of Pilates classes a week. I don’t want to get into the ins and outs of SAHM Vs. working mum here (I may cover that in… Continue reading Quick! Look busy – somebody’s coming!
So, blogging. Bloggers. “Blog-tastic” is a word my friend and I use when we feel pleased with ourselves or something about our life. It’s a bit smug, and bit sarcastic and a bit pokey. After all, we are just normal women with normal lives, not fabulous yummy-mummies with perfect children and homegrown organic vegetables and… Continue reading Bloggers, blogging and all that jazzle.
