The greatest of gifts

Trying to live naturally...

My father in law turned 70 this weekend. He is the youngest, funniest, generous, most loving 70 year old that I know and he is best father in law ever. He is also the most annoying person in the world to buy presents for. Now that he is tech savvy, any book he wants, he orders it off of the internet, any albums he likes the sound of, he downloads them and puts them on his ipod. He’s just bought himself a nice new pair of Camper shoes and a lovely pink polo shirt for golf. In short, he has everything he wants.

Bye bye chicken dreams

A new post from my new blogsite

Trying to live naturally...

I dream a lot. I can’t help it. But equally I don’t want to help it. My dreams are where all my ideas live, where I play everything out before they become a reality. In this way, my dreams are great, so long as I don’t get lulled into a dangerous cycle of keeping all my ideas solely as dreams. So one dream that I thought was nearing fruition, a dream tucked somewhere on my long, continually-being-added-to list of dreams, was the goal to have our own chickens.

Cleopatra Says goodbye…

To my lovely, blog readers, thanking you for helping me find my voice.

I love blogging and I love sharing. I enjoy following you all, reading your posts, learning, laughing, and loving your stories and getting an insight into your lives.

I have come to the realisation that although I have found my voice, I’m am not quite using it in the way that suits me best. So I have had a long hard look at what it is I like about blogging and tried to mesh that with what it is that I am doing in my life and have tried to get that result across in my new blog. (It seemed easier to start anew than to try to change my existing blog).

…and hello again

So thank you for following me this far, for your comments and wonderful insights. I would be absolutely delighted and honoured if you continued to follow me on my new and improved blog site

It’s still me, it’s still my voice but now just with a little more theme and focus.

I hope you’ll join me. Thanks for reading, as always.
