I'm actually appearing in a photo or two.  Well, one for now, but it's a start.There was always going to be a spread on New York City and I love how the finished spread looks.If you're looking for some inspiration on Traveler's … Continue reading OLW – Nourish & the Traveler’s Notebook

Month in Numbers | January 2018

I find January to be a month that usually drags its feet.  Not this time around.  Let's see how it worked out: 4: the number of pages in the application form issued by Guide Dogs for the Blind.  All so we could apply to rehome a dog who has been withdrawn from training. 270: the number of … Continue reading Month in Numbers | January 2018

On the Happy Mail front this week, the Postie bought me a beautiful note from Julie (in response to Happy Mail I'd sent her).  But as we all know, unsolicited Happy Mail is welcome, whatever the reason behind it.     Despite the mizzle and wintry nip in the air this weekend, we wrapped up warmly and made the most of being outside.  … Continue reading Memos: Mail: Me

This and That

I've felt the urge to nest lately and, because of that urge, I've stayed close to home this week.  Nothing special, just, you know, pottering about. Waging war on the gazillion leaves that land on our drive throughout Autumn.  Working on improving, moving platforms and re-branding my blog.  {If you've made the switch over from Blogger, thank … Continue reading This and That
