Finding Nemo

Sometimes it takes a shock

To make you sit up and take notice

Sometimes the realisation that what you were

What you said and what you did

Was the muted version of you

The version for others

Now I am me

Unrestrained and unrestricted

What went before wasn't all wrong

But this is me

Finding me 

And loving me even more

For my honesty

What you expect of me won't happen

Unless I tell you to expect it

Sod Nemo ... I found me

I go because ...

Sometimes it's not adventure I need

Sometimes it is the exact opposite

Sometimes a soul needs calm

My soul needs calm


To be at one with itself

Now I know this

The feet walk

The wheels go round


And time

A gift I give myself

A Wild Woman

It is

It really is

But then there's always Paris

For adventure

Or a little bit of van life

To calm a weary soul


Tuesday 26 June 2018

Go normal

It doesn't happen often

But when it does

Don't miss it

It will be a while

Until it happens again

A Good Cup of Coffee

I'm a simple girl

It only has to be a mug of Nescafe

A well read, favourite book

And maybe a bar of dark, dark chocolate

She discovered she was fierce

I knew my time would come one day

My time begins now

Letting go is hard

Holding on is harder

A Jive and a Salad

People think they know me

They don't

Hell sometimes even I don't know me

So how can they

Better dancing than cooking on a hot day

I'm fed up with thinking of food

Of cooking

Of feeding everyone

Far more fun to ramp up the radio 

And jig around the kitchen

Than heat up a pan

So perhaps a jive

Followed by a salad

Being grateful

If there is one thing I am

It is grateful


For all that I am

And all that I have

I have been hard up

Owned little

Owed lots

And yet I was still grateful

For my family

For my health

For what I did have

Gratitude is s good feeling

I am also grateful

That I speak my own mind

Own my own words


Change myself for no one


Sunday 17 June 2018


I lurch from too few to too many

You never know which day you've got me on

Until it's too late

Windowsill Still Life

A windowsill still life to calm the soul


Spring Onions


Mixed herbs

Compost bin

Random cockerel

Rich People

It took me a while learn this

Many years ago with a different mindset

Armed with little rectangles of plastic

I thought I could buy a better image

A bettter lifestyle

A better me


It doesn't work

Then life changed

Then I changed

I'm not rich

Except in experience

And all that mattters

But neither am I poor

In any way

A window ...

Sometimes a blog is a window on a soul

Sometimes it's just musings written from the head

Sometimes it's the innermost you

Or the story of your journey

And sometimes it's all four

And more


Monday 11 June 2018

This is me ...

This is me

This will always be me

Sometimes it is easy

Sometimes downright difficult 

Sometimes bordering on dangerous

But always me

Best to keep it simple then


Saturday 9 June 2018

I like ...

I also like books

And Pugs

And silly silly laughter


Sparkling Water

And the hand of the one I love

In mine


It is for the best


Friday 8 June 2018

I woke up one day ...

An now the adventures roll in thick and fast

There is no stopping me

Breathe in the sea air

Sit on the grass and watch the world bustle by

And then sit on your step at night

And marvel at the twinkling stars in a velvet black sky


Thursday 7 June 2018

I'm mostly peace ...

I know what I am

And what I am not


And this could have been me yesterday


Cut offs

And a boot full of plants

And this is also me

Most of the time

A Wise Woman

Sometimes you trot along through life

Living the life others expect of you

It can be okay for a while

But there comes a time when all you can say

Is fuck that

I only have one me

She is mine

And in this wonderful life 

That we only get one shot at

It would be wrong not to embrace the real me


Sunday 3 June 2018

Be Brave

Be brave

In the big things

Or the little things

But just be Brave
