here & now

20a4b096-feae-4cf0-a2cc-996d0027d847The day has been a grey and quiet one.

My son and I have just enjoyed a lasagne, a somewhat made up recipe, but delicious all the same. I even made my own white sauce which did threaten to be lumpy, but I managed to pull it back. I don’t think I will buy white sauce ever again {my usual cheat} because it was pretty simple to make and tasted lots better : )

I am trying to fill the house with a sense that spring is not so far away.

Daffodils on the windowsill remind me of my mum. Monday will be the two year anniversary of her death. We have come a long way.

There is so much unrest in our world, but we all have to do what we can with what we have and hope that it will all come out in the wash {so to say}.

I have joined Instagram {very late to that party} and I have to say, I rather like it! You can find me here, should you so wish.

How is your here & now?

And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~ T. S. Eliot

On this second day of 2017 I am feeling a little more positive than I have done in a while. Truth be known, I just feel that 2016 was a {sort of} wasted year. Don’t get me wrong there have been some fantastic times for which I am very grateful, but it just felt like a year in which I didn’t embrace the good things quite so heartily as I should have done. Basically, I felt off balance.

Therefore, this year ‘BALANCE’ is going to be my word. I am going to keep what makes me happy and filter out the things that do not…now that sounds like a plan! I intend to write more this year too, as that really seemed to go on the back-burner last year.

What do you want your year to look like? Whatever shape it takes I hope that it will be a good one.

Here’s to endings and beginnings and to the things that make us happy!

{I am so thankful for my online friendships and look forward to them continuing in this new year xx}
