Hakuna Matata

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…

Boxing Day

Boxing Day

Hi there, Happy Boxing Day! I hope your holidays have been pleasant? Had Dave’s family over today. It was lovely. Little children – no, actually – unicorns in the house. How lovely was that?! Prepared a big old bowl of German Potato Salad, served up with – yep, you guessed it – T U R K E Y ! Dee-lish-us!! And that brings the Christmas festivities to a close in our home for another year. Grace is off back to…

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Writing extra fast here, because the family is due to land at 3pm. Was doing really well, at Waitrose at 7.30 this morning, got all the last minute bits, loaded the fridge – there’s enough to feed an army just on the top shelf! Peeled the spuds. laid the table nicely for this evening, and even had time to verbally choke a DHL rep for screwing up the parcel which was intended for our…

Christmas Clarity Party

Christmas Clarity Party

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Home late. Been partying! Wonderful Christmas lunch at the Spa, with games and singing and all sorts. It was a perfect way to end this year: surrounded by the Clarity team and the Grays. A few important people were missing, which was a pity. Debby unwell, Andy unwell, Jeannine and Laurent at home because Alain was coming home for Christmas today. And our Mark not able to make it home for Christmas this year…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Just a quickie. We took the bus to Brighton and back today. Blue skies, lovely last minute shopping in the Lanes. It was busy but brilliant. As was yesterday evening, when we spent a rre evening in the company of Sir Ian McKellen. What a stupendous performance! He was incredible! We laughed, we cheered, we sang, we cried, we yelled – he had us right there, in the palm of his hand. What a…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Up with the skylark this morning. Thought I’d come in here and wish you a lovely weekend. I hope that you are enjoying the run up to Christmas, and not stressing? Taking it one day at a time here. The gifts are mostly wrapped, although I did run out of gift-tags and really ought to remedy that asap, before the Chanel Mademoiselle goes to Harry and the Splash it on goes to Sally! I…
