Firstly, I must say, I really DO love my kittens. They are great company and an endless source of entertainment for me. But some days, we have minor disagreements. It’s not easy living with a pair of ninja kleptomaniacs! This morning, I caught Hamish slinking past me with something brown in his mouth. He hadContinue reading “Klepto Kitty Strikes Again!”

Hamish’s Journey

When I found out I had breast cancer, it was a scary experience. A few years later, when I was told it had returned, was even scarier. But I’m lucky enough to have a great group of friends and family who were there for me, offering support, well wishes and a shoulder to cry on.Continue reading “Hamish’s Journey”

A Few Things I’ve Learned In Scotland

People are friendly and obliging. If you ask for directions, and your destination isn’t too far, don’t be surprised if the person offers you a lift. Roundabouts can be scary!

Who Has The Nicest Butt? (Artistically Speaking…)

Social Media can either be useful and educational, or totally annoying and useless. But you can be guaranteed a laugh on a regular basis. I don’t even remember how I found this page, but it was definitely a link from one of the social media channels. Whether or not you have an appreciation for art,Continue reading “Who Has The Nicest Butt? (Artistically Speaking…)”

My Apologies

I had a plan when I started this blog. That plan has since been revised. Twice. At least… My original plan was to come up with something to write every single day. But life is busy, and sometimes my brain doesn’t want to have to work that hard. So, I thought I’d do theme days.Continue reading “My Apologies”

Also known as “lightning bugs”, fireflies are actually a nocturnal variety of soft-bodied beetle. There are over 2000 species worldwide, and they are found on every continent except Antarctica. Did you know that not all fireflies glow as an adult, but they all do in their larval stage – fascinating! They also spend most ofContinue reading ““Let Your Inner Light Shine” A Message From The Fireflies”

Happy Canada Day!

I consider myself very lucky. Whereas I am and always will be a proud Scot, I am also proud to have lived much of my life in Canada. Canada certainly has a lot to offer! A great education system, healthcare and many opportunities. Beautiful lakes, beaches, forests to explore, the Rocky Mountains. Canadians pride themselvesContinue reading “Happy Canada Day!”

Musical Monday: Presenting The Didgeridoo

I was first introduced to the didgeridoo (or didge, for short) many moons ago, while working for a fun store called Green Earth, that used to sell imported products from around the world. The store also had an extensive CD collection of world music, including the Putumayo Collection. But my absolute favourites were anything thatContinue reading “Musical Monday: Presenting The Didgeridoo”
