My Sunday Photo My Pashley


It's been 3 months since I've ridden my Pashley and anyone 'who ' knows me knows I love my Myfanwy ( so name after a John Betjamin poem ) . The reasons for not writing my bicycle were illness and an accident , I wasn't harmed but a car so intend on not driving into myself instead drove into a parked car. Then yesterday at the same spot my inhaler dropped out my pocket and a car crushed the plastic casing , luckily I managed to rescue the inside bit before that bit the dust.

So it was only a little cycle but it means more to me than you could possibly know.

I've Planned My Big Escape

I've not told you about my planned big escape .

I adore travelling , I would just spend all the time in the world travelling if I could , I'm a seeker of travel and I always look at travel differently to other people I think . I've a romantic notion to travel which is quite odd as I've a practical soul that misbehaves . I'm off to Rome of course I'm going to take the family it's the last big Hurrah before the teen goes off to University ~ blows nose .

We are travelling with British airways from Heathrow ~ I love flying from Heathrow I'm always excited to fly from there , I'll let you into a little secret I'm petrified of flying ~ well the take off that is and maybe some of the flight depending on the turbulence levels.

Do you have some where you 've been longing to fly to ?

When ever I go someone where I view the place as an explorer , as if I am the first one to see the majesty of a place , to see the sights , the colours and the smells , I translate my assault upon my visual cortex in the pictures I take and the words I write , although I am not as lyrical as I wish I could be.

Striving to be better is part of travelling and part of ones self.

Last summer it was Amsterdam and Fuerventura , and 2015 it was Washington D.C

AWWWH travel how I love thee let me travel your ways .

Blog Commenting Does It Really Matter.

I don't think blog commenting matters as it did.

I admit I've been quite relaxed on the blog commenting front , but it's not blog adulation I'm seeking basking in the sunlight of comments . It's really about documenting how I feel on my blog , I share stuff my husband or son wouldn't share that's me .

And for me to feel relaxed and not beholden to commenting is a release.

That's not to say I won't comment on blogs , I certainly rt them.

What matters to me is me .

What matters is cake.


What matters is the cake is a #randomnactofkindness

What matters is the cake is a gift from a neighbour whose husband is poorly .

What matters is my husband was able to help the neighbour.

What's matters is life .
