Miscellaneous Monday

as l stopped by the window
and filled the kettle for a brew
I was drawn to the symmetrical composition 
outside the kitchen window

twin parked
almost identical cars
made a strangely pleasing sight


  1. What a delightful artistic coincidence!

  2. I thought at first you'd mirror-imaged the photo yourself! What a fabulous suprise for you.

    By the way, I love your new look and title.

  3. You're up late. I'm still in Sunday with a bunch of teenagers talking "Dude" talk behind me. (At least they haven't tried to banish me to a different room.) Love those green cars. Everything here is dark and beige blah!

  4. What a great shot! Very very pleasing and amusing...

  5. ha! how wonderful. I love little oddities in the world around me like that.

  6. It's one thing to see something like that, but you managed to take a fantastic photo as well.

  7. Well spotted! Everyone seems to be changing their templates at the moment, looks good.

  8. That's a great picture - and the cars' colour is so striking as well.....

  9. I love it. You couldn't get another picture like that if you tried.(Anywhere else!)

    Nuts in May

  10. Except for the hub caps (do you call them hub caps in jolly old England?) they look identical to me and the symmetry is perfect

  11. How the greens complement each other is a treat - You have such an eye, my Sara...

    And I am adoring your peacock finery, beautiful and very you! xox

  12. And not only are the cars symmetrical, but so it the building and the espalier! So wonderful!!! But of course, with your artistic eye, you never miss a trick! Love that about you...among other things, dear friend! Hope your Monday is as fabulous as you are! Love, Janine XO

  13. Pretty. And weird. Did you back away slowly?

    Such pretty sights out of your window. Do you have much of a breeze your way? A breeze can make all the difference.


  14. that is quite amazing really X

  15. You have a good eye! I doubt that picture could be taken two days in a row.

  16. oh what an odd but delightful shot!

  17. How fascinating, I like that!

  18. So cool... I wondered if the owners returning to them stuggled to work out which one was which.

    I remember spending five mins thinking the lock had broken on my brothers car until someone said... since when did your car have a sun roof? Ours was two rows further on in the car park

  19. I love the color and juxtaposition of the random moment :)

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…
