Miscellaneous Monday #3

whilst waiting for some shops to open in Kensington
(it was going on 10.15am)
I marvelled at some of the windows and contents
and not at a certain reflection...

click to enlarge , if you must


  1. How cute are those chairs for card club!! They don't look very comfy, but how comfy do you need to be while playing bridge?

  2. Hi Saz, lovely to catch up with you. And to read your thoughts on being alone - they rang many bells for me. Happy New Year, with love, M xx
    PS Loved the film trailers - what a good idea.

  3. I ADORE those chairs!!! And YOU are lovely as I'll crawl back into my hole now...not supposed to be out and about today...couldn't resist! Love you! ~J.

  4. Gorgeous chairs! Each one would be a great conversation piece and I think men would be the ones to gravitate towards them.

  5. those are great cards, I dread to think how much they cost.............

    Gill in Canada

  6. I justlike hearing you say "whilst" and "if you must" take care~rick

  7. The heart chair is my favorite, but I'd love to have the entire set. Did you check the prices?

  8. Well, you don't tell us the price! They are really cute and so are you!

  9. girls and guys- the old saying.' if you have to ask the price....'

    no price in window of this bijou, bespoke furniture spoke..

    Rikkj- why can't l access your blog, have you stopped...gosh l do hope not....

  10. Can you imagine the house where those chairs would be at home? Huge, minimalist, no kids.

    Love ya.

  11. Now you know if there is a option to click and a dare of "if you must" then I must. Sad article that I am

  12. I love these chairs!

    The couple looking out of the window in Montmartre and waving are a Greek couple. I think that it's actually a likeness of them. It just took my breath away.

    Happy New Year, Saz.


  13. Well those are cute.. card suits.. and the quQueen of hearts in the reflection.

  14. But of course, I must! Is it you then? :)

  15. It's like "Where's Wally?"!

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…

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…


..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…
