Back in the swing....

After the tired and sore and sleepiness of much of this month, I am now well and truly back into the swing of things.  Once again the days are stuffed to the gunnels, and the rare opportunities for rest and relaxation shine out from the diary like beacons across a deep November sky.

Life is good and busy.  Work is hard, challenging, fun and ridiculous.  Home is full of purrs and tinsel (Dave the tree is back!), with stacks of gifts to wrap, cards to write, and joys to share.  December looms, filled with sweet reunions, fun plans, stacks of things to do,and yet more getting back into things (including blogging, ha!).  It's my favourite season, and I'm so grateful and lucky to be well for it.

Bring on the mince pies and mulled wine!



  1. It's Thanksgiving Day, and our family eats an early dinner instead of lunch. Just now there is a lull between the hectic preparations and all the guests arriving for the meal. I wanted to take some of that time to visit my blogging friends. I needed to say thank you. Thank you for the inspiration you provide here in your place and for the comments you leave behind when you visit mine. Happy Thanksgiving, friend.

  2. Glad you are feeling back in the swing of things, right before your favourite time of year!

    And it's a crazy busy time of year, but crazy busy good.

  3. Glad you are back in the swing for your favourite season!


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:
