Day trips are cool

Day trips are cool

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Yep, although today has been a day for paying bills and catching up on personal paperwork, I’m definitely doing day trips on my week off! Tomorrow I’m off to see Mum and Dad, and we’ll be taking a run out through the Kentish countryside in the car, just so they can see something other than their back garden. A change is as good as a rest, and all that! No need to get out…

In it to win it.

In it to win it.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. On my way out to a meeting with a few of the crew from work, to discuss some new ideas, and get a couple of fab new designs into production. Decided to check in with you here and write the blog before I leave, because these meetings invariably take longer than we think, and then I end up working till late into the evening. No good. If you don’t like something – change it!…

Too hot to think.

Too hot to think.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s no good. Way too hot up here in the SHAC-Shack to rustle up anything remotely creative this evening! Been prepping demos all afternoon, for Friday’s 9am and 1pm Mixed Media Shows on TV HOCHANDA.com. Lots of Gelpress and paint, which I love! Got so engrossed in the art process, I didn’t realise how sweltering it was in here under the eaves! Not until the paint stopped working because it got too hot –…

Get Happy – Get Groovi!!

Get Happy – Get Groovi!!

Good morning! Great to have your company again! The Clarity Virtual Open Days have been such fun so far. Now usually, it would all be over in the Hall. We would have packed everything up yesterday evening, and everybody would have been wending their merry way home last night or this morning if they had further to travel. But today, since it’s all virtual, since it’s all safe and online, we can keep it going! As soon as Grace wakes…

#HappyDayClarityDay Giveaway No. 5.

Hiya! Back up on the chair again! Time for another giveaway. Just got back from visiting my parents. Set Dad up on his bike. Left him studying the instructions on the various programmes! And Mium, she who’s always at my side when we do the Open Days is doing fine. She was sorry they’ve been shelved this year; she loves chatting away to everybody. Every year since we started the Open Days, we always say afterwards, “we’ll never be able…

#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…

Put a fiver in the swear box…

Put a fiver in the swear box…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. A little while ago, I decided to curb my swearing, because I felt it fuelled negative thoughts and anger. I felt that using angry language just made me angrier. How am I doing? Some and some. Some days there are no f***s; other days there are more than I would like to admit. Today I read about the 5th black man found hanged in the States, and I am fucking wild. So let me…

Alone? Not alone.

Alone? Not alone.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in; it means a lot to me. It signifies that my time spent writing to you, blogging, is valued by you. I woke up early this Saturday morning. Dave was already getting ready to go to work. I had planned on staying at home, so I lay in bed with my cuppa for company, and considered the day ahead. Always need a plan… Clean the kitchen floor. Finish the ironing, so we don’t have to…
