As I get older, and as I say that I know that to some I seem like a grown up and to others like a babe in the wood, I find there are things I find real comfort in.

Misty mornings, lingering hugs, cards from dear friends, Christmas music.

And also, I find myself yearning for the simple, the wholesome, the uncomplicated.

Cups of tea, the laughter of dear friends, old movies, wholesome food.

As life passes along, the seasons meld into each other, and I glance around at the people I'm lucky enough to make the journey with.

And I feel happy. Content.

I still have dreams and goals, for sure. I want to do this and that, but I find that now I'm happier to have things happen at the pace they are meant to.

Promotions, weddings, wieght loss, study, babies, houses, whatever....what will be, will be.

I'll be sat here looking at the leaves turn and listening to Carole King, waiting for the next little moment of pleasure. And let life take me where it will. I intend to enjoy the journey, and catch all the goodness on the way.

I'm living an uncomplicated life. And it kind of rocks.

  1. I enjoy it, but as you grow even older you'll find that things like marriage, houses, babies etc complicate your life more and more!

  2. Did you say weddings? And LL Cool Joe is right. Still even with it being complicated it's all worth it.

  4. I love it! I think extended family is more complicated than anything, but I can ignore them to a certain extent ;)

  5. Your posts always put a smile on my face! They make me feel warm and happy inside especially on days when I'm struggling to smile!

  6. LL, Wiwille, I know...but I love to keep it all in perspective. My life, for the most part, is very sweet!

    RK, ain't that the truth!

    Miss A, thanks! How are you doing?



Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.

If you'd like to work together, or if you'd just like to say hello, my email is:
