Lenny Letter's horoscope for Taurus for February: TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The term homo sapiens is Latin for 'wise man', but what does wisdom mean to you? This month, consider the wisest people you have known. Look for their commonalities. Was it curiosity, kindness, patience, and/or something else that allowed them to convey… Continue reading Finding wisdom in my circle
I'm taking a leaf out of Al and Pip's blogs, here and here, and 'Taking Stock' this January. I really liked this idea, probably because I love lists and reflection, and I'm really happy that Al lead me to Pip - because Pip crochets stuff! Sending a very warm thank you to these two awesome… Continue reading Taking Stock
I've just moved back to Australia from the United Kingdom and the packing was a mammoth task! It was very much worth it though. We've had more sun the last two weeks in Sydney than I think we had all summer in London. Wearing SPF 50 daily for my pasty rosacea riddled skin. I do… Continue reading What’s in my suitcase?
If you're a Pride and Prejudice fan (guilty! Though Persuasion is my favourite Austen) then you'll likely be familiar with this question. Which makes for a better Pemberley?

A few months back, I read Catherine Gaskin's A Falcon for a Queen. It must have set a spark. When I saw the Cotswold's Falconry Centre on Google maps, I kept clicking through till I found a Flying Start for Two and signed my husband and I up. He's an adventurous sort and an easy… Continue reading Falconry – A day in the Cotswolds
I made it! My first comic con and literature convention. It was awesome! I loved it 🙂 My friend has a Back To The Future poster that was signed by almost all the stars. Tom Wilson who plays Biff was there and completed the set, except for Crispin Glover, who he reckons he is unlikely… Continue reading London Film and Comic Con and YALC
I possess only an inchoate image of the myriad of ephemeral moments that lead to this one; that lead to me loving you. Inchoate. Myriad. Ephemeral. These are my three favourite words and they mean the following: inchoate: just begun and so not fully formed or developed; rudimentary myriad: a countless or extremely great number of… Continue reading My 3 Favourite Words
