International Women’s Day to me is celebrating being a woman in today’s world and acknowledging women in achieving what they set out to do despite the limitations which still exist for us in this day and age.

We were both relieved to have the car home, finally in working order. My partner pressed the button for the driver’s side … Continue reading BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Quotes can be quite inspiring at times. However, some which I see go around Facebook, can be rather depressing and don’t tend do anything except reinforce the depression and keep you down in the pits of your darkness.

How much do we rely on technology these days? Phones, laptops, notebooks, computers, and all sorts of other magnificent whatchamacallits and thingymabobs which whistle, twang and ping, reside highly in our work and private lives. We keep in contact with people on them, do business on them, organise our days, weeks, months and years on … Continue reading AT A STANDSTILL
