I saw a mouse.. where?

Well,it wasn’t on the stairs and it didn’t have clogs on

It was a very cheeky and pretty mouse though

The cheeky and cute little mouse appeared in the garden as we where having a BBQ, looked at us and started to nibble the dogs bone close to where we were sitting

We spyed the mouse,the mouse spyed us and ran back into the bushes

A few minutes later the scene was repeated, and again and again. Until I threw the mouse a bit of food that we were eating, it picked it up with ease, despite the food being the size of it’s head and it then proudly retreated into the bushes with its prize


Embelton Beach..the best beach ever

This afternoon my daughter and I went to Embelton Beach, wow

You arrive at the beach via a golf course and sandy dunes

At the top of the dunes is where the”wow”surfaces from within you

A huge sprawling sandy coast line, looking untouched by nature.

In the distance on a hill stands an ancient ruin if a castle

There were a few people on the beach today but considering it was a very warm Sunny in July, surprisingly few

It’s well worth a journey to this area just for this amazing unspoiled beach

A different time

I recently visited my mum to retrieve some of the photos of my childhood

It was a different world back in the late 60s and 70s. Everything seemed so innocent and timid

When you look back through the photo’s of your childhood; it wasn’t the world being innocent, it was you, reflective of your age, seen through your eyes and experience

Back in the 60s and 70s the world was as it always was, intersperesped with wars conflict and injustices

My world in 2018 is still innocent, my eye’s protect me from injustices, conflict and wars. They show me hope and happiness

What do your eyes show you?

Where am I? A conversation with myself

Where am I ?

Actually, I don’t know!

How did I get here?

Thats easy,I took my dog for a walk and started going down paths I hadn’t noticed before. One path led to another and so on

What am i doing now?

Another easy one. I am taking photos of insects and all things small. One of my favourite hobbies in the world

Parallel Universe

On the radio over the last few weeks, morning chat shows have been joking about us living in a parallel universe at the moment

The reason being is we are having a hot summer, yes blue skys and warmth ever single day. I am not even taking coats /cardigans with me , which is unheard of in our normal British summer

Tbe second reason to justify the parallel univse claim is we are winning at the World cup at the moment, this in itself, is incredible. The last time we won the worrld cup, was the year that I was born….yup all the way back in 1966

My own strange parallel Universe claim today is …I am at home watching England wining at football on my own with a lager whilst my partner who loves football is out at a hippy festival

It’s a strange universe simetimes…

Earlswood Craft Ctr

It feels like there is nobody here apart from me

Do people not know about this small but perfectly formed craft centre with its many little independent shops?

Hold on a minute, another few people have found the manor house tea rooms …so I am not quite alone any more

On a wonderfully sunny day, this place should be buzzing with activity and people

Where are they? Maybe the hot continuous sunny weather doesn’t suit the UK after all?

A Summers Night

“Where are you now? ”

Thank you for asking 😉

I am sitting on a blanket having a picnic at the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham

“Why are you there so late ?”

Yes, it’s nearly 9pm, but they are having cult movie nights and we are aboutto watch the Lost Boys

A very nice way to spend a warm summer night. ..come quick and join me…

Take a journey

Right now, take a journey with me

Let yourself pretend, just for a moment you are living my life. I will be your senses. ..Let’s begin

I can feel the warm summer sun beating down on my face and arms. A large colourful butterfly has just flew past my arm, just missing me

I am sitting on the grass watching my dog, roll around in total pleasure, scratching her back and head in pleasure

There is a gentle breeze making the leafs on the tree rustle in excitement

A pigeon breaks the silence and in the distance a ice-cream van sings it’s happy song

My sandles are next to me along with my book

That’s the next half hour taken care of

What’s happening in your world?

Summer Sunshine Festival

I sat and listened. .

..ho ho ha ha ha came from one room, as the laughter yoga instructor took her class

..devotional chanting came from another room

..all around me, people were having their futures told to them via cards, crystal and personal objects

..the mindful guitar player set the scene for the day with her beautiful tones

..people were relaxing and healed from massage and reiki

..the smell of home made incense, wax melts and soaps filled the air

And electric and happy atmosphere

Yes, definitely this holistic festival I organised is a successful. I stroked my dog who sat next to me
