Ready to roar?

December 30, 2019

This is the bit before the bit just before the end of the year, and in this case the decade.  We are about to re-enter the roaring twenties and there is much to roar about.  So much work to do – get rid of Trump,  create a new business, finish the jigsaw, end plastic pollution, stop the right wing from wheeling further right, reverse climate change… busy busy busy.

Clearly we don’t want the kind of build up the last roaring 20s brought, with the Wall Street crash, followed by the great depression, followed by, well you know, the rise of Hitler and his chums.  Begins to feel uncomfortably familiar, doesn’t it?

So, anyway – among plans for sorting it all out I am also working on smaller, more personal plans.  I won’t call them resolutions, partly because that almost always means they will be dropped by the end of January.  Here they are:

  • Write more – I have submitted a short story into a competition, and while I have no illusions that I will win, especially after my friend Diana, who suggested it, has submitted hers, it was a great exercise and one I want to repeat a lot.  And no, you can’t read it now.
  • Create a wonderful and welcoming Slow Retreat format with Liz Lewitt in her gorgeous place in the Forest of Dean (it can be hired for anything you fancy just you so you know)  I attended the first one she organised and it was a great experience, the idea being to simply slow down, let go and breath a bit.  Due to other commitments Liz can’t organise any more on her own so that’s where I am stepping in.  If you are interested please contact me for further information.
  • Look into making more delicious and natural lotions, potions and balms.  I have made a few already and they have been big hits.  Going form making for friends and family to commercial might be a leap too far but worth looking into.




The handsome man I live with and I are travelling to the wilds of Somerset for New Years Eve, a lovely low key one that I hope will involve roaring log fires (on theme there), excellent company, food and the finest wines known to humanity.  I am making a lemon tart for my contribution – I will post pictures of it on instagram, because that’s what I do.

See you on the other side faithful follower, and a happy new year to you and yours.
