Talking from Experience

Having lived my own personal brexit, I was shocked last Friday when I saw that the UK voted to leave the EU. I have come to terms with it now. I accept the democratic vote and feel proud of the bravery and courage it took to stand up for what the majority decided was right…

Food for Your Soul

If you know me you know my chicken noodle soup. It is a staple in my household. It is filled with lots of good things, but most of all, it is filled with love. The recipe for my chicken noodle soup is mine. It is so simple. In fact, it is not a recipe at…

Food Glorious Food!

FOOD!! What does that word mean to you? Does it create happy memories of time spent with family and friends or does it create stress in your mind and butterflies in your stomach? Food has become a controversial subject and this is quite sad really. Food can and should create happy memories. Even if you…

On a Winter’s Eve

I love watching the fire. It is mesmerising. It is company on a cold winter’s evening. I sit by my fire and play my guitar and dream of a life where I feel truly happy and fulfilled. Not sure why I am always dreaming of that life. Do I not have that life? Am I…

The Joy and heartache of Christmas

Christmas is the time of year when we are forced to look at the quality of the relationships in our life. Some of us are very fortunate and are part of a solid family unit but not everyone is so lucky. It can be very difficult to face up to the reality of broken families…
