I saw this ...

I saw this

And went oooh

Like you do

It appeals to my growing sense of


Of minimalism

I traced it's roots

And it's from IKEA

Oooh ...

Life Can Be Weird

Life can be weird

I think we all know that

But finding it weird

And enjoying the weird

Are two totally different things

I enjoy my weird

But I sometimes find other peoples weird

Too ...

... well weird

The First Step

It's another year

Another year of sorting


Jettisoning stuff

There's always too much stuff

It  has to go

Before I do

Same As Every Other Year


 We're five days into a brand new year

My mind is still racing with possibilities

With new ideas

With plans I need bravery to see through

I need to be real

To be me

To be sassy as f*ck

Same as every other year really

But more so

My Word for 2019


It seems that this year

On social media at least

Everyone is choosing a word

A word to sum up their aims for the coming

Fresh New Year

I had no idea what mine would be

I wasn't even thinking about it

Then suddenly I knew

The way you know the name of a new puppy or kitten

My word is


Happy New Year

Just a Chicken in a Box

Just a chicken

In a box

Little Jill

With her sore eye

Having a day of rest before visiting the vet

And rather fortuitously a hamper arrived  for us yesterday

With food grade paper straw

Perfect non dusty bedding

For a chicken with a sore eye


A lavender heart

For my Lavender Pekin Bantam
