About Me

rose eyes avatar 120px

Middle aged and surrounded by loving friends and family. People who don't sit in judgement and people who care. Well most of the time they do.... Happy to be part of the independent thinking group and a person who refuses to follow others like proverbial sheep. As the saying goes... If you're allergic to bullcrap, drama, head games, liars, & fake people, keep the sneeze going.........I can't wait to see who does all of this next!!!

There is nothing like spring…

There is nothing like spring… Well I don’t know about you, but when the sun shines and those first spring flowers start to emerge from the winter barren soil…

Bluebells at Emmetts….

One of the features at Emmetts Garden in spring is its woodland full of bluebells.  Yes there are steep paths to climb as the woodland is situated on a steep hillside.  When we went back on Saturday, the hills were too much for me to cater… so I sent hubby armed with his camera on a trek.

I sat on a bench, waited through howling winds at times for him to reappear.  After…

Return to Emmett’s Garden

Yesterday, even though it was bright and there was a nip in the air, we decided to return to Emmetts Garden near Sevenoaks in Kent. We had previously been there roughly the same time last night, to view the swathes of bluebells that cover the hills of their woodland.

However, I wasn’t able to manage the hills so sat on a bench and waited for the other half to do the…

Kim Jong-un

Kim Jong-unYes I am talking about Kim Jong-un the leader of North Korea.  And yet the world stands by and allows him to go to such inhumane extremes with regards to his own people.

It was only in December that this barbaric leader ordered the execution of his uncle and others… their crime… wanting a better North Korea and because Jong-un thought they were plotting things behind his back. (more…)

New Shoots and Blooms…

On Saturday, as that was the only day the weather was fine, we went to Emmetts Garden, near Sevenoaks… as we walked around the gardens you could see the new buds on the Rhododendrons and the new leaves that were just sprouting.  It reallys make you as if Spring has finally sprung and Summer is just around the corner.

Oh yes the marital difference of opinion… don’t worry it is not that severe that we are going to head to different solicitors in the morning morning… :D But I have to say that I favour the texture picture more than the untextured picture…. yes you guessed it he doesn’t like the texture.

Cinderella Law - Emotional cruelty to children…

Cinderella Law – Emotional cruelty to children…

tugoflove

tugofloveAccording to the news today the Government are hoping to bring in laws that protect children from emotional harm.  Emotional harm to a child can be just as harmful as that of physical or sexual abuse.  Mental mind games, even to an adult are hard to deal with but for a child, who hasn’t reached adulthood, it must be confusing, hurtful and enough for a child to start on that harmful road of self…
