A Challenging Break

I'm taking a bit of a break from this blog while I set myself a little Challenge.

I'll be blogging about it HERE.

The first Challenge on this brand new blog is:

Shopping and Eating for £1 Per Day for 28 Days

I love a good Challenge, and this one is taking me right back to my roots.

Roaring Inside

So many feeling the same way

So many ticking over

Tick tock  tick tock

Have Faith

So true

Have faith in yourself

Have more faith in yourself

 Than you have in others

You will not let you down

Love your choices

Love your life

It's the only one you will get

Oh yes ...

I've put my order in

I knew Alan's workshop would come in handy one day

Move Mountains

There is a mountain in my way

It is one of my own making

And it needs moving

I do not have the words 

To begin the conversation

That will cause my mountain

To crumble

And topple

But I know 

There is a clear path ahead


In the meantime

I'm looking for my magic

A Day in Photos

A day in photos

Well up to now anyway

It's only 3.30pm after all

A doggy walk along the river

And then around the park

Gathering conkers

We have to keep the spiders at bay somehow

And it works


Finished a book

Cleaned out the hen-house

Then gave the other one a deep clean ready for moving them back

To Chicken World

We prefer then in clearer view of the house for Winter

Picked up my beans

And the six packs were on offer for £2 each in Sainsbury's

I now have twelve cans of beans

For Free

It pays to complain ... politely

Downstairs the kitchen is a hive of wine bottling activity 

But I'm keeping out of the way

I hate the mess

It creates

The rest of the day is still to come

But there will be no more photos

For now

The Risk

It doesn't have to cost much to live

To do the things you need to do

You can choose to live simply

Or choose to acquire things

Things will outlive us all

They suck the pleasure from life

They steal the moments

They fill your head with want

And your heart with a desire for more of their kind

Things lead to things

I don't want them

I don't need them

Except books ...

Books are good things 😁

Two Rivers

Early morning

Walking by the River Wyre

It clears my head

Settles my mind

Inspires me 

A little doggy

Running ahead

Enjoying the morning

The peace

And the freedom

But waiting every now and then

For a contemplative  Mum to catch up

Different  day

Different river

This time the River Dunsop

But this time two dogs

Two people

And the River
