FAREWELL 2021 (About time…)

What a joy 2021 has been. Don’t you agree? You must be grumpier than me. It’s not been plain sailing these last 2 years has it? However, I have to admit the hardship of these last few months has somehow developed a fortitude in me I’m grateful for. I’ve been pushed under the pressure to... Continue Reading →


They say Christmas is children’s time. It’s the sense of magic. What do children really want for Christmas? A lot of the usual suspects are pure enchantment for them: the streets and shops lavishly adorned with dreamy fairy tale decorations, the most extravagant front-house Christmas lightings, the school Christmas parties, the Christmas dinner with all...

Walking in the park…

Isn't this lovely?! I had the best mid-morning walk in my local park earlier this week, kind of an impromptu one as out of convenience (had dropped my car at the garage) that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I’ve been in a mood for new things lately. To be more exact, I’ve felt a bit braver to try new things. Some radical, some not. I figure why not? Times we’re living entice a lot of us to learn and live fully again, rediscover and love life with a renewed strength. At the minute... Continue Reading →


Well, it’s been a minute. Was it the lack of wanting to write the cause of this extended break? Certainly not. You know what it is like, when you feel that knot in the stomach every time you get a mental reminder of a task you imperiously need to do, but just don’t have the... Continue Reading →

Cheers to All…

I took a leap of faith earlier this year and mustered the courage to start this platform, to give in to a lifelong passion of mine that’s writing. By far not an easy task given my sheer incompetency at using this WordPress tool! You Reader have accompanied and supported me in these infant stages of... Continue Reading →
