My Blog & News
I have created a new Book Corner Page 💜
I have written many short stories over the years, some that rhyme, some that don't, & they are all charming in their own little way 💜
I am passionate about community, helping others & giving back where I can... I have therefore created some little gift books that you won't find anywhere else in the shops 💜
Two books are available to order now & some more will follow on the page... This is my charity book corner... I will be donating the proceeds to some lovely charity organisations 💜
Choose your book, choose your charity 💜
I never thought I would end up having a dog as a pet, let alone have two dogs... But I do & my dogs are so much more than just pets. They are my family, they are my laughter and my tears, they are my cuddles & they remind me that just like they do, sometimes I need my own space.
They have taught me that it is ok to lick my wounds, that it is ok to chill out relaxing, that things are just things in the moment & then it's on to the next moment, that sometimes I need to be on my guard but other times it's ok to let my guard down, that I can sound & be fierce at times when I need to (even though on the inside I am a 'soppy' sentimental person), & that it is also ok to let my 'soppy' sentimental 'me' show on the outside too. They have taught me about boundaries & standing my ground, they have taught me jiu jitsu moves when they play together, they have joined in with me on the yoga mat, they have taught me that it's ok to ask for help, they have shown me so much & I will always be so grateful that I decided to let them into my life ❤️
Sometimes it is good to look forward and to look and see where we are now. Other times revisiting our past is good. Especially if we are able to see past our trauma to bygone times of home comforts and joy and where memories are made.
One of my most favourite times is the 1970s, the era into which I was born. I have fond memories of long print patterned party dresses, jelly and ice cream, birthday cake and Cadburys chocolate fingers. I can actually remember the first time I ever got to taste these little magic pieces of chocolate!!! To me having that memory to look back on is a kind of wonderful 💜
