What to write?!

 I don't often have a post in mind to write and then I read other bloggers' posts and I'm inspired by my comment and train of thought, to elaborate on the theme, I just love that! It's like magic!

For instance a couple of days ago,  David - authorblog McMahon wrote about things old and worn out (?!)  and asked if there was beauty in decay! HERE

So I have a couple of posts in draft waiting for suitable images.

I wonder if anyone else finds inspiration in the same or similar way?


  1. Yes! You inspired me to come clean about Bah Humbug!!! And I am inspired by others, trouble is I get carried away in the other bloggers comments box and write my inspired post there instead ;)

  2. Thats what its all about here in the blog world, veryone feeds off everyone else.

  3. David got my brain working with that question too. Old and decayed happens to be the backbone of all that I love, except my kids. They're pretty young and not one cavity!

  4. HA! Love the cartoon! One never knows from whence inspiration will come, even for blog posts!

    Peace - D

  5. Love the cartoon...I have one he did that has Beavers at the MN State Fair at the "Stick on a Stick" booth...has been on my fridge now for about 5

    Love the blog!

  6. Love the cartoon. Where DO you find 'em?

  7. Good one Sazzie. I too get inspiration from other blogs, but if I don't make a note AT THE TIME I forget where I found it and cannot quote the source and then a bit later I have forgotten it entirely, yet I can remember the smell of summer rain on hot pavements from sixty years ago. Go figure, as our American friends would say.

  8. Sometimes find other blogs are so incredibly good that I wish I could think of something just as good to write about. Then I look around me and remember that I do have something just as good. We all do. Blogging is so addictive isn't it!!

  9. Life with a four year old seems to do it for me! Keep losing my theme of 'having it all' though, must get back to my raison d'etre one day......

  10. Just found your blog ... and just about wondering about coming out of denial about almost being fifty !
    I will be back ....

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…
