Well, this was some of the junk picked up on Saturday by a (relatively) small team of keen cleaneruppers... in what seemed like no time at all, 1 to 2 hours. #soworthit There is no doubt, as a life form with vested interest in the future habitability of this planet, we have to up our enviro-conscience game - individually, as a family, in groups and organisations. A word to the wise... There are so many hidden benefits in getting involved, it beggars belief that more people do
Just visited Ikea to return spare parts (all those extra bits and pieces - and not forgetting the Allen keys of course), packing and plastic packaging...
They were thrilled !!! Truly, properly happy... and surprised...
Apparently it's rare for customers to take this stuff to them.
So, next time you buy, set all that extra stuff by, separating the extra parts from the packing and plastic packaging, and return it on your next visit ! #News #Inspiration #GoodPractice #Snip
... the question is... does your home suit the whole of you... and I mean the whole of you? I'm a homely sort with a spirit for exploration, contrary to say the least. To overcome this I've always made wherever I am my home, hunkered down, settled, explored the wider community and made the place my own... My heart has travelled far and wide from the middle of nowhere in Australia to the Tokyo in rush hour, it has been my homemaker. All that changed when I stayed in Dartmout
Moving home is a funny old business, much like any other major transition in life. There is always an element of necessity, being forced or driven in some way, but also a natural and organic move from one place to another. To start with there's the draw towards that generates a pull. Such a gentle tugging as this compels movement into the unknown which can be disconcerting. The stronger the draw becomes, the stronger the effect on emotions, thoughts, reasoning and relationshi
... what makes us human, humane, warm, nurturing... caring. Human emotionality is a fundamental part of what we are. It lives in our neurology, hormones and either thrives or diminishes at a cellular level. It's all about balance. Should our behaviours be that of someone who acts inhuman, inhumane, negligent or harmful, then we are out of balance at a cellular level. This then goes on to affect our whole life. The less loving in our life leads to a life less loved and lo
Spring is in the air here in the UK, the sap is on the rise and all that natural wonder is on the move again. It's time to plant those deeply personal seeds for the year ahead... The words, healthy, wealthy, wise and happy rose up from deep within this morning and the sensation was glorious. Are you ready to plant your seeds for the year ahead? Before you go to sleep at night, take 5 to be with your whole self from the Big Bang forward to eternity, relax, calm, ground, centr
So, what's everyone doing for the planet and climate change on Friday? Whatever's on your radar to make the switch to more planet/nature friendly living, this is your chance to let it happen, just do it! And enjoy For those who are already strongly connected to, and doing your bit for the planet and nature, give yourself a break... take the day off!

... use of my phone. I moved home and never thought for a moment I'd have difficulty with phone coverage. I mean, waaaay back in 2011 I had coverage in the middle of the Maasai Mara... so, really - Devon ?!? It was a bit of a you know what, because my contract had only expired a month earlier, so I'd already switched once. Which, by the way, had gone like a dream. Lulled into a false sense of security, 10 days ago the saga of switching providers began. No coverage, so I began
I was thinking about menopause this morning. It must be one of the biggest changes in any one woman's life. Not only that but it affects everyone around her in a big way. I see menopause as a a real life-changer - time of recovery from and improvement on everything we have been before... with the opportunity to become what really suits... for life. For the most part life transitions are obvious, because something 'obvious' is happening. Going to school, leaving home, grad
Happy St. Valentine's Day! So, yes, home is where the heart, and everything else that's you, is. My everything has brought me to the town of Dartmouth, with my hubby of soon to be 40 years! Where is your 'everything' most at home and with whom? #Snippets #Inspiration #News
