I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Silence is more beautiful than any song

Magnolia flower bud for silence poem

After the entire restaurant hears a plate crash in the kitchen.

When the final and most devastating insult is slung in an argument.

When there’s an unexpected pause in traffic during rush hour.

When you remember…..

When the buzzard spies a mouse.

When the joke falls flat.

When you’re unexpectedly kissed on the lips.

When the wind dies down.

When you close the door.

When the sun turns red.

When your youngest starts school.

When you turn off the hairdryer.

When the sparkler goes out.

When you reach the end of a book.

When the early spring blossom opens.

When the remote is lost.

When you shed sentimental tears.

When you’ve done everything.

When you hold hands for the first time.

When the purring cat falls asleep.

When the dreaming dog wakes up.

When you turn a corner.

When you’re waiting for the result.

When the grass is cut and the mower stops.

When you hold a hug.

When you flick the switch.

When you’ve screwed up the wrapper of the last quality street.

When you just don’t know what to say.

Addendum: This is the result of one of the writing exercises we recently did at Writers’ Group. We were each given a page from an old tear-out page per day calendar that had a quote or saying at the top of each date. We could pick one of the sayings on them to inspire whatever we wrote that week. I picked one with the title of this blog post, and this is what I came up with in half an hour. If you run a writers’ group or are just looking for inspiration if writers’ block has hit, then this is a good idea to get those creative juices flowing, as they say!

This is just the thing: 

If you’re a writer, how do you get over those writer’s blocks moments? Or are you never stuck for an idea?

How to go to a blogging event as a shy introvert. My Next Blogger Network event experience
December 5, 2017
I recently went to the Next Blogger Network event in Shoreditch in London, and I’ll be honest, it’s one of the most scary things for me I’ve ever done! The week leading up to the event was spent either putting it to the back of my mind and pretending it wasn’t happening, or feeling so worried I got a massive ulcer on the inside of my cheek! However, I knew once I’d forked out the money for the train fare, I would have to go, so I went ahead and did that first so I couldn’t change my mind! In the end, I feel it was a very successful day and I’ve come away from the event feeling very proud of myself and ready to go out and find another blogging event to go to! Here’s how I managed it…..
The Glastonbury Festival sign
A sneak peek at Glastonbury Festival 2017 a week before the fun starts!
June 16, 2017
This is mainly a photography post as there isn’t a great deal to say about it really! I had the opportunity to have a walk around the Glastonbury Festival site last night, so of course I took my camera with me! I also vlogged it, so when I’ve had chance to edit the footage, I’ll add that too. I’m pleased to report that the ground underfoot is very firm and the grass very green. It amazes me how much there is still to do in the next six days, but so much has happened in the last week, I’m sure they’ll manage it!….
Walking round Glastonbury Festival site
A walk around the Glastonbury Festival site – the story of the photographs
April 12, 2017
Considering Glastonbury Festival is a hop skip and a jump away from us in Pilton, I’m surprised we don’t go for a wander around the site more often. I’m guessing it’s the long uphill walk back to the villagers’ gate that puts us off! Anyway, on Mothering Sunday the rest of the family didn’t really have a choice in the matter, and as it was a bright sunshiny day, I thought I’d drag them off on a walk….
