This Weeks Thoughts…

November 21, 2021

Hello, I have two things to talk about this week and the first is a Christmas announcement which I proclaimed with great conviction over the weekend and it’s this, “I’m going to enjoy Christmas this year” I have firmly put this intention out to the Universe, and together we will make it happen. The problem with Christmas is it hits you on top of every other plate you are already spinning. It isn’t like a carousel that stops, you get…

Scare the Stuffing Out of Us!

November 9, 2021

Hello,   Well, the good news is Christmas is definitely happening it says so on my Calendar, Church Noticeboard, in My Weekly and when I popped into ‘Pets At Home’ they had a mountain of squeaky plastic brussel sprouts, Christmas puddings, turkeys and pigs in scarves, all waiting to be destroyed by eager pooches on the big day. However, our trusty British press have recently been doing what they do best scare the stuffing out of us with headlines indicating…

Autumn Days

November 8, 2021

Hello,   Well haven’t we been lucky with some crisp Autumn days I’m loving them and today after last week’s letter to you I’m going out to buy Gourds and play around arranging them. Totally delighted to hear we have a My Weekly book podcast coming out because I’m one of those people who immediately and with great enthusiasm want to proffer my book finds and in turn hear about others. And as luck would have it I’ve just put…

Transition Season

November 8, 2021

Hello, How’s your seasonal transition going? I’m just about dealing with those beautiful leaves that gave us such a glorious display of colour now everyday falling to the ground and with Halloween just around the corner Winter is well and truly on its way. I honestly wish I could go round gluing them all back on because seeing them on the floor makes me a little sad however, inspired by my trip to Chelsea Flower show (Autumn version due to…

Little Home Improvements

November 8, 2021

Hello, Last week we were talking Hygge the Danish movement for wellbeing which amongst other things has a large amount to do with the way we arrange our nest. I consider myself a lifetime member of Hygge and proclaim its virtues constantly but even I became reinvigorated by My Weekly’s inspiration and started poking around to see where I could improve. Candles, throws, rugs, cushions, warming food even Soho (dog) has benefited with the Hygge treatment and now the proud…

I have often said, that the elixir of youth isn’t in a pot of cream it’s in the way you live your life

October 2, 2021

Hello,   I have often said, and I do repeat myself, that the elixir of youth isn’t in a pot of cream it’s in the way you live your life, and life as we know often involves choices.  Either yes I’ll do that or no thank you, not for me but do we say ‘No’ because it’s easier? I’m sitting here writing to you from a magazine photoshoot with Ulrika Jonsson. Neither of us can quite put our finger on…

Chelsea Flower Show

October 2, 2021

Hello, All excited sitting down to write because I’ve just returned from the intoxicating atmosphere of Chelsea Flower Show. Over the last few weeks, I’ve watched The Royal Hospital Garden transformed from a park garden to an uplifting stunning Autumnal Showground. Covid has tested our British spirit to the core but handed some opportunities to test out new ideas. Since the show’s conception it has celebrated Spring, in fact its original title in 1862 was ‘The Royal Horticultural Society’s Great…

The De-pack from Holiday!

September 13, 2021

Hello,   So I’m finally back from the land of, ruins, churches, feta cheese, the colour colbert blue and now performing all those ‘coming home’ rituals, beginning with a proper cup of tea, plant check, and a whitewash. I like returning home from any trip to be a seamless transition so before traveling I run round like a crazy woman making sure everything is clean and tidy, because who wants to open the door to chaos, not me. I spoke…
