Kalettes, Happiness and A Break

We didn’t realise quite how big the Kalette plants would get when we planted them in the border! It’ll be fun eating them in due course.

Just one of the three enormous Kalette plants

I shared the August Happiness plan with you some weeks ago. Here is the September plan, this time for self-care, something many of us ignore.


I am taking a break from blogging for a few weeks. I have published almost every day for almost seven years and it will seem odd not to write every day but I WILL be back in this beautiful Blogging Community and all is well. ūüôā

Waking Up In Our Own Bed, Insurance and One Thousand and Ninety-five Beautiful Things

1 ¬† ¬†However lovely it is to travel, it’s always beautiful to wake up in your own bed! ¬†I will be putting up lots more photos of our trip to share more of that amazing journey and what we learned with you all.

2 ¬† ¬†Our insurance company have responded very positively to our finding the dining room carpet drenched! The dehumidifier which usually¬†switches¬†itself off when the tank is full, didn’t! It overflowed instead. We might at last be able to replace the carpet which has been here since we moved in and which we have never liked so it’s not a problem but an opportunity!

3 ¬† ¬†I have been blogging for a whole year! That is at least 1095 beautiful things! I’ve gained 294 followers, been read in 117 countries, had over 20,000 hits and made so many lovely blogging¬†friends¬† Thank you to you all for reading, liking and commenting. Every one is really appreciated.

I was asked recently by a fellow blogger, what do we bloggers get out of this activity? That made me think……

What have I got out of blogging? ¬† Well, so much! I started my blog just for me and had no prior understanding of the friends I would make along the way, that people might actually be interested in what I was doing and that I would come to look forward so much to reading other people’s blogs and thoughts and that we could have conversations across the miles.

I have learned so much about other people’s lives, about the hardships some people face every day, about lives in other countries – blogging has opened up a whole new world for me!¬†I love to read ¬†comments on blogs too and when they touch a chord, I go and look at that person’s blog and another friendship begins to blossom. So, a heartfelt thank you to all of you out there and here’s a beautiful photo for you all.

It makes me wonder too, what is it that you get out of this blogging activity?
