Meanwhile over at .....


We were out last night, out with the other grown up people, and didn't get home until waaaay after midnight.  It's not something we do very often, but when there's a new marriage in the family to celebrate you celebrate :-)

Anyway the late bedtime ... it was 2am once we had had coffee and settled after the long journey home, well it seemed long driving for an hour and forty minutes in the dark and then the strange later start to our day, luckily the dogs were happy to lie in after being disturbed so late in the evening ... has I think left me in a thoughtful frame of mind.

My usual brisk food, film, or book related post over on my other Challenge blog turned into musings from the mind, so I thought I would link to them on here and share also on here ...


... my new mantra, motto, whatever you want to call it.

Over on my other blog today ..... is this.

Now I'm off to clean out the hen house and chop some wood .... my musings frame of mind won't live through that  ;-)

  1. I really like and admire that approach. There have been periods in my life when I had to do without many things, it really teaches you about what's important in life, doesn't it! At the moment though, we are settling in our new house, our very first own house and it takes a lot of hard work and money to make it what we want it to be. But we're doing everything ourselves and try to re-use and re-purpose things as much as possible.

  2. I have a friend who try's to draw me into a discussion every Christmas regarding gifts received from my children. I'm sure there is an inference between the cost of the present received and love behind it. Cheap pressie=no love. I ignore all ploys now. Its strange how some people think you have to have lots of things to be rich in life. I'm glad I know differently.

  4. Those quotes are so very true. It beats trying to catch your own tail with regards to work/earn/spend every time.
