Share and share…I like!

‘Tis done!
I have a pile of shiny packages
Each containing mirth (well to some maybe),
Adornment enough to make Philip Treacy envious,
Something to shine a little light on the world and…a lucky talisman.
If you are prepared to share the grand opening,
they may even deliver their goods with a bang!




Who is this pretty young girl? Her huge whirlpool eyes look unhappily into the distance over the shoulder of the invisible photographer.


What lies in store? Will she find a sense of ease in her distance from home where she can find no peace of mind?


What a difference five plus years makes.  An independent woman gazes back straight at the camera, veiled from clear sight, yet those eyes are now self-assured and confident. Her face remains sombre due to regulations but is used to laughter and smiles not tantrums and tears.


The newly blank pages are not a sign of being less travelled (she who has travelled the globe) … more a sign of hope and freedom to move at will.


A passport reveals so much more than a right to your own identity.

Aiming High

A shiver ripples down my spine as the little cupids run out from behind a bush with arrows aimed aloft. The music marks the mischievous turn when war turns to love and then seeds are sown for a little romance of the Shakespearean variety. Will there be tears and tragedy? Will Romeo get his Juliet? I suspect that for us there will be a happy ending – we have a week until the performance and the rehearsals are going well. | Slimming World Recipes & More

Being Margaret

A lighthearted look at life on any given day


Art is our home. This door is open, always, to all, and yet permits not the entry of draft or rain. The doused may find solace, and repose, in the warmth of this hearth. For the sparks of these words - the spectres conjured by its incandescence - are a family whose love is unconditional, and will ever blaze, kindling within us the faith to weather these tempests. The ashes may then be scattered upon the winds - to ignite the lost, and unify our souls as one, in unquenched illumination; to be the light which guides us home, through the darkest of eclipse.
