Lets Get Cosy

Here, have some tea..

This column is dedicated to all things cosy, comforting and filled with tender loving care.  Ideas, pictures, recipes and thoughts to warm the cockles of your heart!

Leave the world outside, hide away for a moment and think of this column as like the random person who’s nice to you when you’re having a tough day…

and if it all gets too much…… you will just have to take yourself by the hand until things improve

You can hold your own hand when you need to…

but in the meantime……remember to eat well..

……wrap yourself in a blanket, watch a good movie and be nice to you : )

There’s nothing like a good movie…

    • What do you want to do? July 31, 2014
      Good morning dear friends. It’s the 31st of July and there’s already a change, have you felt it? The nights are drawing in, the flowers have gone to sleep, even the air is different, autumn. These past few days have been dark and grey so I decided to rejig our sitting room because, well, that’s […]
    • What would you say to your younger self? July 30, 2014
      I keep seeing this question everywhere so I thought I’d give it a go and scribbled down a few pointers last night. I imagined myself about six, one year into school life. The world will adapt. Your’re right, being older will be better for you. There’s nothing wrong with being sensitive. Something like 15 to […]
    • This is War (a food post) July 29, 2014
      I haven’t talked about food in a while but it’s never far from my mind. I’ve talked in the past about my research into nutrition for parkinson’s and cancer treatment and prevention (my Dad had cancer/has parkinson’s) and how we’ve adapted our shopping and eating habits, within means and reason. The challenge of feeding anyone, […]
    • A Little Rain Never Hurt Anyone July 22, 2014
      There’s the great lesson when your’re Irish that you can’t wait for good weather. It’s possible the sun will shine and you hope it will, but you don’t wait, you live as if the sun were shining. This is why you will see Irish people sitting outside in storms, at the beach in the rain, […]
    • The Land of Hearts Desire July 18, 2014
      What is your land of hearts desire? Mine is a blend of freedom and hiding. Driving’s going well but I’m not there yet. I’m still tied to my house, I have cabin fever but then I don’t want to go anywhere or do I? I don’t like social occasions but my favourite feeling’s always been […]
    • Lunch in Verse July 17, 2014
      Cheese, Tomatoes and Leaves. I just had a lunch so good I’m in heaven. All my troubles have melted away i.e. I have a work deadline today. No ordinary tomatoes and leaves, but our own, from the greenhouse and garden. Buttery baby spinach, crisp basil and peppery rocket and tomatoes so perfect, warm, juicy, not […]
    • First Chapter of my Novel – Reader Feedback July 15, 2014
      As you know I’m editing my first novel at the moment, a contemporary mythic fantasy. Even though it’s daunting I have to say I’m enjoying it. I’ve switched my head from writer, not allowed edit, to editor and of course reader. After some time dithering over process, googling second drafts and what not, I decided […]
    • Giving Facebook the Boot July 14, 2014
      Hello out there I hope your’re well this rainy Monday? I’m having one of those days when you want to just curl up somewhere and think. I’m not sure about what but give me a notebook and pen and a corner by an open window just to listen to the wind and rain. In fact […]
    • How We Spend our Days is How We Spend Our Lives July 4, 2014
      I tripped over these words by Annie Dillard on the ever brilliant ‘Brain Pickings‘ site, immediately struck I often say them to myself… ‘How we spend our days is how we spend our lives.’ I’ve always appreciated little things and nothing’s ever lost on me but I had way to much of a future focus. […]
    • June Art Challenge – Week 4 July 3, 2014
      The June Art Challenge is DONE! What a ride! Here’s my last week of offerings plus final thoughts… Thought the first… Having to do a painting/drawing every day in June meant other things fell by the wayside however I have to add that on any given day things fall by the wayside and I don’t […]
