My life has a superb cast but I can’t figure out the plot. ~Ashleigh Brilliant

12 months, 365 (ok 366, since it was a leap year) and a lot of change… Take minute to look around you; does it look similar to the same time last year? Are your surroundings the same? Are you doing the same job? Do you feel like the same person? Are the people in your […]

You have the Answer. Just get quiet enough to hear it. ~Pat Obuchowski

Happy Easter everyone! I cannot believe it is that point in the year already…how time flies when life gets complicated. I know it has been ages since I have written anything on here- sorry; I am amazed that anyone is still reading my ramblings. In all honest I haven’t felt the want to write anything […]

Auld Lang Syne ~ Robert Burns (meaning “Old Long Since” or “days gone by” )

I’ve done my thinking, analysing and re-analysis on all the highs and lows that make up 2011 and its time to say farewell. The no more need to reflect on it any more, it’s time to package it all up, tie some string around  it and add that small box to the bigger memory box..in […]

Promise me you’ll never forget me because if I thought you would I’d never leave. ~A.A. Milne

Where is the good in goodbye? ~Meredith Willson, The Music Man …An interesting question if you ask me and something I have been randomly thinking about today. Is there such a thing as a positive (good) goodbye?? Is it always sad to see someone for a last time or to close the door on something? […]

There is just one life for each of us: our own ~Euripides

As we approach the last few weeks of 2011 I guess most of us cannot but help to reflect on the year behind us…… I could attempt to summaries the year from an economic / political view point but that itself would take an age and to be honest I wouldn’t know where to start. […]

A peacefulness follows any decision, even the wrong one ~ Rita Mae Brown

Every day each one of us makes and faces lots of decisions. Some are simple- what to eat for breakfast, do I want tea or coffee to drink. Many take a few mins to mull over..what to wear to work.. Then there’s the bigger decisions…the ones that way on your mind for days, weeks even […]

When will I feel like a grown-up?

Not so long ago, I can easily recall, Skipping along & holding hands, Playing make-believe with my Mum or my Gran. Failing in the playground & grazing my knee, My love in life was only for ponies. Before I knew it, it was time to study & learn. Trying to fit in with trend & […]

“It’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes – that’s why you sometimes need really special shoes!”

Is being single a good or bad thing? This weekend I have been pondering if it a good or a bad thing to be single? Having been on my own for most of 2011 I seem to be settling into the fact it’s just me (and my cat of course). It’s taken a little while […]

The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost – G. K. Chesterton

As I start writing this post I am not sure if it is one that I will end up sharing or just delete. I’m not really sure where I am going to go with it. Today I have watched two programs both based around what can happen at the point when you first say those […]

If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies. ~Author Unknown

Another week has flown by and this time I have been thinking a lot about “change”…the good and the bad. Time seems to be racing by and as we head towards Christmas again (believe it or not the supermarkets have the Christmas goodies out already…only 15 weeks to go don’t you know) I find myself thinking about […]
