Not quite to plan

Hey there! I hope you are doing well. I am still in the UK, dodging the rain, still in awe of the green scenery after a three-year dry spell. I have been quiet this week. I injured my foot a few days ago. It has forced me to stay home for a few days, but not to worry,...

🇬🇧 ✈️ I finally made it

Hey there! I bought a ticket to the UK last week and jumped on a plane inside twenty-four hours. I am currently in a coffee shop charging all my devices as it buckets down outside. I am damp but connected to the interwebs. Business continues as usual. All is good....

My lucky break

Hey there! Thank you for all the well wishes, last week. I'm slowly returning to the land of the physically moving and fully cognizant, and starting to dip my toe in to the cool waters around Gorey Harbour again. Also thank you for the feedback on recent features. I...

What law enforcement tell me

Hey there! Counting down to my trip to the UK 🇬🇧. Lots of appointments, seeing friends before I leave, writing reminders for things that need to happen while I'm gone. I won't be back until Thanksgiving 🦃 in November and that feels like a long way away. A newsy...

❤️‍🔥 Don’t these look cool? 👀

Hey there, It was so great to hear from so many of you last week about my jumble sale dress. I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. It was fun to write. I live in earthquake country, just a few miles from a fault line. These past few weekends I have been updating our...

A true story

Hey there, Something happened a few years ago. I wrote about it. It's cute. And completely true. A magical (and true) story I moved to California on October 30, 1996. Virgin Atlantic flight VS019 arrived at SFO at 2:50 p.m. to be exact. I sat in seat 49C. Five years...

Are the books appropriate?

Hey there! I hope you are doing well. I went for a lovely afternoon tea on Sunday with a friend who'd just had surgery. We ordered extra sandwiches because I love sandwiches. We didn't order extra scones though which I think was a mistake because I needed more...

No more pink cartoons

Hey there, I had dental treatment last week. I'm adjusting to my new mouth and grateful for pain medications and sedation and skilled dentists on the forefront. I'm not a fan of the dentist. And as I had been waiting in trepidation for over sixteen months for this...

Sunny problems

Hey there, oh dear reader! It's windy where I live. In the afternoons, I can barely stand upright when I go for my walk and have to cover my head with my hood, holding it at the neck to keep the wind out. It is lovely and sunny though, so inside it is very nice. Next...

Are you a highly sensitive reader?
