Big Cheer for Tina Cox !!!

Big Cheer for Tina Cox !!!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Mentioned dear Tina in yesterday’s blog yesterday. Then phoned her, just to check in on her. She’s been having a pretty tough time since before Christmas, and she’s still not back to her bubbly self. Actually, if you’re wondering where she is hiding, she has retreated to the back of the cave, and is feeling pretty low. To be honest, I get it. No wonder she’s fed up !! I’d be fed up if…

Very Handy indeed!

Very Handy indeed!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Did you read Grace’s excellent blog about Gratitude Lists yesterday? It was good to be reminded; in the daily chaos that has enveloped Clarity in recent times, I have been neglecting to do that simple task every morning, and reading Grace’s sage words placed me firmly back on track. Thanks Grace. If you would like to check it out, go to yesterday’s CLARITY MATTERS Blog. A worthy read indeed. In fact, at the very…

BILLY

BILLY

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Good day today. A Billy-Building day! There’s nothing like a mindless exercise to clear the head, is there?! Mind you, building BILLY Bookshelves does require a little focus – as I found out! There IS a set sequence, and it’s best to stick to it, and not be the first in the process. So we formed a production line, Paul and I. Paul started the step by step. He likes unboxing things, so I…

Calm it Kermit!

Calm it Kermit!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. New Year’s Resolution: CALM IT KERMIT! I have a tendency to spiral. Starts out fine. Picks up momentum. Pedals like a loony. Forgets to eat. Spirals. Starts running around waving arms in air. So this year: CALM IT KERMIT. Let me give you an example. Tomorrow we (Paul and I) were scheduled to get up at 5am, hit the road early to avoid congestion, drive up to Peterborough, do a 12noon hour and a…

Good n Grateful

Hi there, Thanks for popping in! It’s blowing a hooley out there today! Happy to be in the dry and warm. The numbers of homeless people are soaring; must be dreadful when it’s cold, windy and wet. Saw lots of tents pitched on the pavements in London on Sunday. The idiot in me thinks “well, that’s a bit unsightly, bang in the middle of Picadilly”. The human, the sister in me thinks “Poor people. Thank God they’ve got some sort…

Hakuna Matata

Hi there!Thanks for popping in! Off up to London with Dave in a minute, to meet brother Steve and his Sheila. Hahahhaa! Sounds a bit Australian! While Dave checks train times, I thought I’d wish you a Happy Sunday and Hakuna Matata! Meaning? No worries for the rest of your days. Sounds like a wonderful way forward! So think of us at 2.30, four big kids at the Lyceum, in the stalls, Row P. Watching – yep – Can’t wait….

Friday Hat? Mrs Mop!

Friday Hat? Mrs Mop!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How did I know the Half Price DIE-namite Fresh Cuts Sale would blow the doors off?! Of course, what it has also done is wake up all those of you lovely Clarity club members who hadn’t renewed your club subscription! Suddenly, customers go to place an order in the sale, realize their 10% or 15% club discount has expired, and are calling the helpline to get the new year’s subscription in place and sorted…

Shen Yun in Wo king

Shen Yun in Wo king

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Had a day off today. Took a quick trip to China and back with my parents. It was epic! Quite a long way to go for a couple of hours, but well worth it. Such lovely people! Did I say we went to China? Well, not quite. We went to Wo King, to see Shen Yun. If you haven’t heard of it, Wo King, it’s near Guildford off the M25. Shen Yun? Now THAT’S…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Lovely sunny day here in Kent. How about your neck of the woods? We went for our New Year’s Day walk on the 1st as planned, but just over to the Ashdown Forest. It was rather foggy that day, and definitely welly weather, very muddy underfoot. My feet always get cold in wellies, so before we set off I thought I’d put on a second pair of socks….

Aloha 2020 !

Aloha 2020 !

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. In fact, thank you for popping in most days, as you do. I appreciate you, and even though you may not comment, I know you are there – and that’s a good thing. Remember when I was under attack back in June for ostensibly plagiarising artwork? That was a very low point for me, and without wanting to relive the whole headstorm, what I remember was the overwhelming show of support from friends and…
