On Having a Plan

You’ve got to have a plan. An idea. A goal. Something you want to achieve in life. Charlotte and I have had a five year plan. We all know that the best laid plans of mice and men don’t always come to fruition and there are often setbacks along the way. Many people questioned ourContinue reading “On Having a Plan”

Why me…?

On a week that has witnessed the most privileged among us discussing the lack of fairness in one’s life, I’ve woken today with a shout of agony as my back has decided for some reason to not play ball, contracting the lower muscles into an agonising, screaming knot of pain and discomfort.  “You’ve retired” IContinue reading “Why me…?”

Full Circle…

People often say when returning to their native shores from having attempted to emigrate is that the reason they feel they have had to come back to their home country was their failure to understand the language. They didn’t feel at home. They failed to integrate with the community. They didn’t ‘belong’. Now apparently, forContinue reading “Full Circle…”

2 Weeks In…

After 14 days of howling gales and storms that would put English weather to shame, I turned to look through the salon window and shouted “will you please give it a rest” to which the weather gods, in their ivory towers, said a resolute “Non”.

The desire to stop sitting around waiting and instead, wantingContinue reading “Overseas Deployment…”

An ancient historical text is littered with references to charity, extolling the virtues of giving to others. If read as a blueprint for our happy co-existence, the second part of the whole group of manuscripts could be viewed as an instruction that success can only be achieved by the outpouring of love from one toContinue reading “On Giving Freely…”

Letting Go…

The ground is hot to sit on. Even the scorched grass gives little comfort and the summer haze shimmers as the temperature nudges 30 degrees. It’s hot. Stiflingly so. Wicker hampers, disgorging chilled champagne, wine and lashings of ginger beer, do little to take the edge of, what is looking like, a sweltering and chart-topping-since-records-began,Continue reading “Letting Go…”

Concerning Nut Milk…

In an attempt to maintain my racing snake figure, Charlotte has decreed that I should change my intake from less of the bad stuff to comestibles of more nutritional value. And move more. Chocolate, being a plant and, by default, of vegetable origin, it somehow doesn’t count as one of my five a day andContinue reading “Concerning Nut Milk…”
