#264 Baking as a distraction

Baking is lovely. You get to be creative and end up with something delicious. If you need a distraction, I’m here to declare that it is a wonderful diversion. If you have all of the most often used ingredients in your pantry and an oven, or even a slow cooker, or an air fryer, or…

#263 Movie Night

Friday night’s have become movie night and tonight after playing Murder in the Dark, a game made up by the youngest womb fruit, some of us are going to watch Rocketman. I’m pretty excited because I love Elton John’s music and also because we’ve had it on our “movies to watch list” for a while…

#262 Why are cats like this?

I love cats, you probably already know this because I often include pictures of them in my posts. We have five cats. All rescue cats, and we are responsible pet owners in that they are all registered and chipped and neutered. So they are happy and healthy. They live quite a nice life being doted…

#261 Feel Good Day

It’s been a really nice day πŸ™‚ Amongst other things we went to the pet shop and bought some meal worms f to enrich the diet of our hermit crabs. They are quite interesting and we might let a couple grow into beetles and then release them. We were out and about and I have…

#256 New start

The great thing about beginning to read a book, whatever it’s format, is that it’s a fresh start. A new story to discover, page by page, chapter by chapter. It’s full of unlimited potential. That’s is also the case with a new day. A new day is a fresh start and also full of unlimited…

#255 Time Out

Now that I have my health sorted out to a degree, I feel like like I need to do some planning. Tomorrow morning I’m going to take some time to add important dates into my planner, as I k know there are few things I haven’t put in. I’m going to do some meal planning…
