Cream Crackered

(titled especially for CCT who will know what it means). I've had a pretty productive day, spring cleaning at my house. I'm exhausted now. Partner is away for a few days with stepson so I am all by myself and enjoying my home. The downside of spending all our time at his house is that while I keep... Sign in to see full entry.

Notre Dame

I don't know how many bloggers remember, around 2006, 7? YPunday's Haiku blogs.... we would submit strings of haiku and YPunday would choose a winner - all very informal, and at the time very good fun. This was one of my entries, a long time ago, and it seems a good time to re-post it: Stained Glass... Sign in to see full entry.

Patience is a virtue

The conversation this morning between my partner and his forty-something son went something like this (I may have mentioned 'Charlie' calls his dad by name.. I think I have called him 'Jack' but that could change.. smile): Charlie (loudly, from the kitchen): Want a cup of tea Jack? Jack: No thanks... Sign in to see full entry.

Crows

I’m not going to say anything about the massacre in New Zealand. All I will say though is that on waking this morning to the very unusual sound of a crow, when what we usually hear is the cooing of a pigeon or the trill of a cheerful robin, I fleetingly pondered how the sound of a crow is so often...

Women's Work

It is often said that women’s work is never done. To to some extent that’s as true today as it ever was, but with a few qualifiers. It is easier to carve out some daily down time when the family is out at school and work; routines develop, and if you are up early like I always was, most of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Older and wiser?

There doesn't seem to be a manual for growing 'old' - perhaps I should make a note of the things I'm learning, if I can remember them... (haha!). Forgetting what I went upstairs for is giving me exercise at least! Sign in to see full entry.

Happy New Year to you all

It is the first day of another new year and a reminder of how fast time flies. Perhaps this year I will get more time to write and reflect, meanwhile I am glad we have this Blogit space in which to do so. This has been one of the hardest years I can remember, but it's over now and we can turn the... Sign in to see full entry.

I can certainly pick 'em!

Sometimes I have the most extraordinary experiences. Yesterday leaving church I noticed that the blackberries in the hedges around the burial ground opposite the church were ripe and ready for harvest. I do not care for wild blackberries, though I do like blackberry jam. I am always half afraid I... Sign in to see full entry.

Five minutes to think?

It takes eighteen minutes to scrape 12 new potatoes (I know because I timed it last Friday). It takes thirty seconds for my loved one to come and talk to me when I think I will sit down for a little while with my laptop. Silly of me (smile). No wonder I never get anything written these days...!... Sign in to see full entry.

Entering my rock-chick age belatedly?

How have I missed this until now? (heard on the radio today for the first time).. haha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuCGiV-EVjA - and I already have the pre-Raphaelite 'festival hair,' not having been able to get to my hairdresser for quite a while (maternity leave - hers, not mine!)
