Christmas Values

With only a week to go before I fly home for Christmas, you can only imagine the excitement in our wee apartment at the moment. The excitement is also at a high in my workplace considering the vast amount of internationals who are also departing for the festive season. I am crazy running around trying […]

Good Manners, Good Life, Good Person

If there was one thing my parents taught me as a youngster, which has stuck with me my entire life, is that manners cost nothing. A simple ‘please’ or a ‘thank you’ takes no effort. A courteous ‘hello’ to your neighbours or colleagues. Or why not go that little bit further and greet a complete stranger […]

Why I Admire………Honey Boo Boo!

I have a dark secret to divulge. I am a massive fan of Honey Boo Boo and her madcap family! Some of you may cheer this revelation while others may have automatically decided to avoid me from now on. That is ok. It seems like the entire world is split down the middle by the […]

Here comes winter……..

Hello all! It has been a while since I have been on here and even as I write these opening words I realise how much I missed jotting down my thoughts. I had intended this post to be a fashion haul to ease myself back into the swing of things but the WordPress App cruelly refused […]
