It’s Raining Men

“Hi, we’re your weather girls, and we’ve got news for you!” “Humidity is rising, barometer’s getting low” “It’s raining men! Hallelujah, it’s raining men, AMEN!” When I heard the opening chords of this one, and I just laughed and laughed. Not because it has or hasn’t been raining men, but just because it has beenContinue reading “It’s Raining Men”


Celebrate good times, come on! Quite a stirring cry, in days like these. Well, since lockdown began, I celebrated my birthday, Alex and I celebrated six months in the UK, and on Wednesday, my sister will be celebrating her birthday too. It’s been a weird old three months. It’s time to come together – well,Continue reading “Celebration”

Modern Love

“I know when to go out, I know when to stay in”. Ah Bowie! At the moment, we don’t really have a choice, do we? I’m alternating between being okay with being safe and being really sick of it. I sometimes just wanna go for outings, you know? And not to the same 5km patchContinue reading “Modern Love”

Pencil full of Lead

What a joyful song this is – a celebration of being content with the things you have and enjoying them and the things they enable you to do.

Danger Zone

I made possibly the tastiest-I’ve-managed-so-far fried rice this evening for supper. It’s kind of one of those dishes that I know should be easy, but there is a lot to be said for consistent practice and watching the experts. Since the start of Lockdown, I’ve watched a whole lot of Bon Appetit (particularly Gourmet Makes,Continue reading “Danger Zone”

Wedding Dress

It’s been almost a year since I married my hero – on our way to our first anniversary, in mid-July. It’s been kind of surreal to see how much stuff has happened in the past year, from our marriage, to leaving my first ever grown-up job to move overseas to a city we had neverContinue reading “Wedding Dress”

Fight Song/Amazing Grace

It’s a Sundayish sort of feeling, sitting on the couch in the lounge and watching the last rays of sun creeping over the edge of the cloud as the sun sets. Thinking about the weekend that has passed, and the week that lies ahead. One of my favourite mash-ups of all time, by one ofContinue reading “Fight Song/Amazing Grace”

I just haven’t met you yet

This upbeat Michael Buble song is lots of fun, and full of hope. I love the fact that it goes through the great positives of finding your human, projecting into the future. I’ve had the great fortune to find mine. Alex is kind, determined, stubborn. Very caring. Will love you by serving you, especially inContinue reading “I just haven’t met you yet”
