Life with Millie

Suffering the loss of a family pet might seem trivial to some, but for those who have shared their lives with a four legged friend, that loss can be devastating. Continue reading

Monday Coffee

Welcome to the bat cave in our new abode. It’s a little messy at the moment with a large plastic container holding our video tapes and cds filling the space between the single chairs. On the up side, my new blue sofa is just itching to be used, so let’s grab our cups of tea and coffee and give it a purpose. Continue reading

Serendipity

I often enjoy writing about fortuitous moments in life where everything aligns to create a happy happenstance. This week has been no different… Continue reading

Monday Coffee

Hi and welcome to the new bat cave. It’s with great sadness that I have to show you an empty cup and seat at the table today. My friend, work colleague and a great supporter of my work, has passed away. A gaping hole will be left in our school and our hearts at her loss. She was a true fighter, battling cancer and still putting others and her work first till the very end. There are few people you meet in life who show such strength and endurance beyond a normal human capacity – she was one of them.

So, as we sit together in the new bat cave, I propose a toast: to Rebecca. May we continue with even half the strength, motivation and love she shared with this world and change the lives of those around us for the better, just as she did.

Monday Coffee

Crisp air blows into the café as I hustle through the door to join you on the yellow couch near the bookshelves. The warm smell of freshly ground coffee mixed with baked delights fills the air and I take it all in as I reach over to give you a hug hello. Now that we’ve settled on the brightest piece of furniture in the room, let’s sit back and catch up on our week. Continue reading

Anniversary

Whoop! It has been 5 years since I first took the plunge and started my blog!

I could wax and wane over my trials and tribulations, exciting moments and not-so-great posts, but there’s no point when you’ve there, on the journey.

Instead, I will say, help yourself to a glass of champagne and let’s raise a toast to all the bloggers I have met along the way, the wonderful readers who have made my day and of course, the inspirational posts I’ve had the fortune to share.

Thank you, one and all, for being a part of this journey.

When Do We Fight?

As the world bathes itself in the blood of innocents, ignoring their cries as they bleat acknowledgements to corrupt leaders, I ask: when do we fight? Continue reading
