Share your world 10th December 2019

Every week Melanie from Sparks of a combustible mind poses a series of questions, some fun some a little more deep and meaningful. Some weeks they are painfully difficult and really make you think. What is truth? Truth is in the eye of the beholder, much like beauty I guess. Two different sides of war will…

Share your world – 3rd December 2019

I know it’s December and I have already had two Christmas luncheon/celebrations, but I still am just not feeling it. Does anyone else find that? I used to get so excited for Christmas, with the kids getting so excited and all the fun festivities, decorating the house, wrapping presents. Then, of course, was Christmas Holidays…

With barely five weeks left of the year, I can see things slowly starting to slow down and wrap up. I had a very relaxing weekend with good food and good people, time on the couch, time with the animals, time for a sleep in (of sorts). My last workshop for the year is just…

Commenting on certain philosophical and political themes this week, can’t say it is my normal cup of tea…but let’s dive in for this weeks’ SYW, shall we? Can we ever experience anything objectively?  Why or why not?  I really do feel that anything we experience that is deeply meaningful will always be twinged by emotions. Therefore…

Feels like it’s been a crazy long week, it’s always a race to the finish line coming up to December. Fortunately, between my business and my day job once I hit December the crazy usually settles down. It was not always the case, we use to refer to the week before Christmas as ‘Hell Week’…

I have just gotten back from a few days away, we always try and get in a local trip before Christmas madness sets in, this year was a little earlier than normal, but that’s OK. We spent 4 days travelling the Goulburn, Mallee and Wimmera regions of Victoria (Australia). Just got back and thought I…

This week’s question from Melanie, SYW… QUESTIONS: Why do we have such trouble telling our loved ones that we love them?  Do you have that kind of communication issue with your loved ones? I don’t really have trouble saying, but I find others seem to have trouble saying it back. I say it to my daughters…

Share your world – 8th October 2019

Another week, another round of questions from Melanie – SYW QUESTIONS: Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) a good thing, a bad thing or a mixture of both? I honestly think they are a great thing, I really only use Facebook and Instagram, it’s hard to keep up with all of them. But I have met…

Monday’s Musings…

I managed to have a completely relaxing – no work three day weekend, to be honest I think I needed it. My back and hip are in a bad way and a few days of rest and sleep-ins, couch sitting and a small amount of walking helped…I think. Just as well, I have a couple…
