Forget The Numbers


Eight. That is my favourite number. I call it my lucky number. Although I don’t know what’s very lucky about it. Perhaps because when rotated 90 degrees it turns into an infinity sign.

2018: These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things


The older I get the faster time seems to go. And the harder I find it to sit down and write a blog post. I’ve been looking through previous New Year’s blog posts from the last couple of years, trying to find my “blogging voice” and rekindle that flow of words. Alas, nothing.

Christmas Cookies


So I’m not the greatest cookie decorator in the world but because Christmas only comes once a year, I wasn’t going to let my lack of skills stop me. Baking at Christmas time to Fairytale of New York playing in the background, is pretty much a tradition at this stage. And Christmas cookies are just one of the many cakes…

June Book Reviews
