Passion Merchant

Hello, dear reader!

We all, I think, have a list of priorities. There are things that matter to us, some a little more than others, and, probably without much in the way of conscious thought, we arrange those things into neat little tiers.

Now, for a lot, if not most, of us, the higher tiers will be filled with the health and wellbeing of those we love. Families, friends, partners, and quite rightly so.

But somewhere, possibly a few tiers down, there are those other loves. The ones we don’t always admit. Those personal obsessions, that mean nothing, or next to nothing to most other people, the ‘extra’ bits of life that go that one step beyond hobby or interest to become something more.

It’s one of those I’d like to talk about today.

Clean Bowled

Hello, dear reader!

It’s going to be a short one today, a quick read (stop cheering at the back). The reason for this unexpected brevity? Well, that has a little to do with cleanliness, a little to do with windows, and a little to do with crown green bowling.

Intrigued? Then read on.

Grey Hair & A Creaking Back

Hello, dear reader!

So it seems it's my turn again …… you chose whether that's a good idea !!!!!

Today I want to ramble on about something that affects everyone, an inevitable part of life that often we all dread, yes you can get creams and treatments to delay it, and yes you have probably at one time wished you could slow it down. Have you guessed?—Today I want to ‘ chat’ about getting old.

Coronation Chicken

Hello, dear reader!

Some weeks, it’s a chore to find something to write about.

I mean, my life isn’t all that interesting, and I’m not sure everyone wants to know about the new coffee I’ve treated myself to. A lot of weeks, that would be the only thing going on right now that might (might) be worth blogging about.

But not this week.

No, this week the topic of discussion is undeniable. There is, you see, a rather big event going down this coming weekend. One of those ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ deals. Because, this week, a new king is being crowned.
