Zero to Sixty…Blogger Style!

  It's been over a year since I last posted on the blog, and with each month that passed, it became more difficult to return. I love being part of the community, so I've been looking for a way to ease back into  things. Of course, easing in has never been my style! So, when … Continue reading Zero to Sixty…Blogger Style!

Resting My Eyes – Weekend Coffee Share: 23 April 2016

If we were having coffee, I would apologise for my absence last week. It was my birthday, and I was away for the weekend. It was my eldest daughter's birthday too - the day before mine. She was born at 7.40pm on the 15th of April - the absolute best early birthday present. It's hard … Continue reading Resting My Eyes – Weekend Coffee Share: 23 April 2016

Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16

If we were having coffee I would tell you that, between interpreting jobs, I had a fun and creative week with my daughters. My eldest has a photography project due, so we set up a few spooky photo sessions (one of the artists she chose, Sarah Thompson, creates haunting images). The original shots are manipulated to create mood and atmosphere, … Continue reading Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16

Meet the Barkers – Weekend Coffee Share

  If we were having coffee, we would be surrounded by the whole Barker clan! We often get together, but this weekend is a little different, because my brother is here for a visit. We all miss him. Andrew is the life and soul of the party; he is quick to laugh and always manages … Continue reading Meet the Barkers – Weekend Coffee Share

Saturday Book Club – 26 March 2016

I'm still reading Rogue Lawyer, but a friend told me about a book called 'Why Does E=mc²?' by Brian Cox & Jeff Forshaw and, like I said...side tracked. It's heavy, but written in an engaging tone, which is often amusing, so when you have … Continue reading Saturday Book Club – 26 March 2016

Saturday Book Club – 19 March 2016

Hi, how was your week? Mine was a little crazy, so I'm thrilled it's the weekend - more so because I get to catch up. So let's talk. I have a pretty comfy couch, so we're good here for a while. I'm currently reading Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham, but we'll get to that in a … Continue reading Saturday Book Club – 19 March 2016

Saturday Book Club

Welcome, I hope you had a good week. I am having a lazy Saturday. I've almost finished Crossing Bedlam, a novel by Charles Yallowitz, so I'm in my lazy-day clothes. All my jobs are done, and I can camp out on the sofa and finish the adventure. I will be writing a review, so next week I can … Continue reading Saturday Book Club

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Anne Frank

Writer’s Quote Wednesday is organised by Colleen from Silver Threading, and is a wonderful weekly series in which bloggers share the quotes which inspire them. I highly recommend checking them out. My quote this week doesn't really need an introduction, or an explanation. There's a reason writing is used in therapy, and why so many of … Continue reading Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Anne Frank
