Hakuna Matata!

Hi there. Thanks for joining me. Whistle stop tour of Africa today! Seems like absolutely ages ago since we spent a week there, doesn’t it. Head on over to the Claritymatters blog, for a guided tour… Me? Well, I decided to have a clear out in the SHAC-Shack. Looks like a bloodybomzitit! Trouble is, it always gets worse before it gets better, right? And right now, as I write, I am sitting waist high in boxes and black sacks and…

Day Trip to New Mexico? I wish!

Day Trip to New Mexico? I wish!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Just got back from a smashing day with my parents. We didn’t go far – just round Kent, Headcorn area. Very, very beautiful it is too! You really don’t have to go far anywhere in Britain to find areas of outstanding beauty, do you? We are so lucky. Remember our trip to new Mexico with the dreamcatchers and rattlesnakes? I did enjoy our week there; New Mexico is called The Land of Enchantment for…

Hi there. Hope you are enjoying your weekend? I’ve been hanging out in Hawaii in my head, which is just great. Inking and doodling and colouring. So glad we are staying a second week. This doodle week has been a mammoth one! On the one hand perhaps we could have gone with just one photo, and kept it simple. But on the other hand, we had such blast, drew loads of new things, hibiscus, surf shacks, surfers, bamboo – and…

#HappyDayClarityDay Giveaway No. 3

#HappyDayClarityDay Giveaway No. 3

Hiya Well the room has filled up now, and there is a wonderful, happy buzz. Buzz?? What am I saying?!? More like a lively chattering and laughing and giggling ! Here are some pics of when we were in the Crowborough Community Centre, back in 2018. Ah yes. Those were happy days. That was about a fortnight before we got married! So we got Ruth Dalton’s clever sister to make us all exquisite wedding cup cakes. They were fantastic. Now…

Practice. Practice. Practice.

Practice. Practice. Practice.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Today I want to talk about Practice. I can only speak for myself, but as we move through month 3 of our daily doodling and colouring sessions in the SHAC-Shack, my drawing is improving, as is my colouring. It really is. You may not notice, because you only ever see my finished effort. So let me expound: I’m arriving at the same place, but much faster and with greater ease! I think it has…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Sunday. A day off before Monday… Spent the morning with my parents. Had planned on taking Dad’s birthday present over to him. Remember the static bike he wished for? The one which was delivered during our doodle session on Wednesday? So Dave decided to read the destructions and assemble it PRIOR to taking it over to Dads. Good job he did! The part which attaches the saddle to the bike was missing! In the…

One Day at a time? One piece at a time!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Day off today. Late spring cleaning, light housework, making each room nice and tidy. Titivating, prettyfying. I have to be busy, even if Clarity is off the menu! The weather was rather mis, so in the afternoon I settled down to another favourite pastime of mine, a jigsaw – which certainly does just that: Passes the time. I listened to my newest book by Kate Morton, The Distant Hours, whilst sitting with a rather…

New York New York

Hi there. Hope you’re ok today? I looked back to the 23rd May 2019 this morning, just to get some perspective on today, and it threw a whole heap of emotions at me. A year ago today, we were on our way out the door to visit Gracie in New York. It was the trip when we were making a plan for her to join the Clarity Team. We had been to see Jools Holland the evening before (Paul’s Christmas…

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Long day, warm day! All good here. Took the afternoon off, to sit in the garden with the birds, and have a good think. Wednesday’s blog from the heart, right? So how are YOU? How are YOU coping? Are you still at home? Are you still in isolation? Or have you peeped over the fence yet? Never saw this coming, did we? I always thought that if the business failed, it would be because…
