The Life Pivot

The Life Pivot
When my husband sets his mind to something, it's fair to say I think he gets a bit obssessed, fanatical perhaps, I'm, not sure, but a discussion that often came as part of a joke after a drink or so on a weekend of doing something that was perhaps not as rewarding, or perhaps ho-hum or even had to work when the desire wasn't there, has led to a series of ideas that have started to become the reality.

The Demise of the Department Store

The Demise of the Department Store
Today I set myself a task.  I love writing, although my blogs and lacklustre efforts could make you wonder, behind the scenes, my life is full of ideas shared on paper.

I've loved writing for years, it's one of the things that I feel helps take thoughts and bring them to life and often I feel the physical part of writing is more significant in results than the keyboard.Today I set myself a task.  I love writing, although my blogs and lack lustre efforts could make you wonder, but behind the scenes, my life is full of ideas shared on paper.

The value of a cup of tea

Sometimes, if I had my way, I'd be sipping a hot cup of Madura English Breakfast tea, not the tea bags, but the real tea, the loose tea you put by the spoonful into the pot and let sit for a few minutes to steep.

My cup would be my favourite double walled glass cup, the ones we see everywhere now, but well before it was fashionable, I was sipping my cups of tea from them.

Of course I'd be sitting in a comfortable chair, on my verandah, shaded from the harsh sun, but still warm enough to enjoy shutting my eyes for a moment and thinking, letting my mind wander and occasionally, opening up an eye to see if I can spot that bird I hear every day, but eludes me because there are so many beautiful plants to hide.
