We recently moved house into a stunning new flat, and due to being very disappointed in our previous ‘service’ providers are in between Internet providers just now.

I loved this book…. so from here expect an unadulterated rave Addition is the narrative of a woman teetering on the edge of madness (of which kind I’ll not tell) and occasionally diving head first all the way in.

As I have been busy over the last week Christmas shopping, christmas wrapping, starting a new job, getting the family ready for our trip North to Aviemore (estimated temp -9), I figured that everyone else is similarly busy, so have decided to give the series a ‘holiday’ for the Festive Season.

An Exercise in Gratitude

It’s the festive season, the holdays, Christmas time, a time to spend with family and friends, looking back, having a laugh and looking ahead. As an ‘expat’ in a foreign land (I know it’s not that foreign being English speaking and all… but bear with me it’s all about the rhythm) it can be a [...]
