My journey to work today

It is the little things that nark me lately - if they are little. There are certainly more important things to be focusing on. Unity on all the 'isms, famine, homelessness, terrorism the sad list snakes on. Although focusing on the good stuff is equally important as it reminds us of our humanity. I love … Continue reading My journey to work today

Just walk on by?

At this time of year it's a chilly walk to my car from the office. What gets me through the rush hour traffic, is the cosiness of warmth when I open my front door.

Leave a gap, maybe indicate an intention too

It's that time of season, nights are drawing in, coolness from the threats of autumn over the last few weeks are now reality.

My sadness for the loss of more people … Continue reading “It is proof that the fabric of this society is not torn”

Welsh fans donated blood to a local Serbian who was shot in the stomach during clashes between rival fans from Partizan and Red Star ahead of … Continue reading Is blood always thicker than water?

Lovemanchester lovelondon

I watched the concert last night, loads of positive heart warming and togetherness moments. Yet my thoughts were also with those who lost loved ones in London..in a senseless and hate driven act that's becoming all too frequent. When will it stop, we all keep writing words of sympathy in a world where some want … Continue reading Lovemanchester lovelondon
