Happy New Year!

When I was a child, or even a young woman, everything took time. Television was channel 1 and, great luxury, channel 2! Phoning was expensive and kept to a minimum. We wrote letters which traveled for days and responses were not expected to be fast. As a child, if you were separated from a friendContinue reading “Happy New Year!”

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Or when did you last do something you usually do, but in a different way? Or when did you again do something you used to like but stopped doing? Habits tend to envelope us like a costume over time and as the years go by, the costume gets ever tighter until our thoughts and bodies becomeContinue reading “When was the last time you did something for the first time?”

I experimented with flowers in differentContinue reading “Forgotten childhood dreams”

The basic rules for humanity is no secret, we all know it; it’s called moral and ethics and even if weContinue reading “What can I say…?”

All these cats come visiting from time to time though I never feed them. They sleep in my garden and huntContinue reading “The story about Mr Red, the Cat”

Trash becomes Treasure

I keep little bits and pieces; a ribbon from a chocolate box, some lace from a broken old sheet, scraps of cloth, pieces of broken jewellery…Stuff that is perfectly useful but you don’t know it yet 🙂 (I think I have it from my grandmother) My friend calls it my “bra-att-ha-låda”, translated it means “good-to-have-box”.Continue reading “Trash becomes Treasure”
