Life is a Steam Train!

But a slow day of sunshine is calling me!
We have had a couple of weeks of such wintery weather, but we are back to lovely Autumn today. That is my front door with the draught stopper rabbit my niece made holding it open, and warm sunshine puring in!

My life isn't always a steam train! But the last couple of weeks have felt just like one! Puffing and chuffing with whistles and steam billowing out! And saying to myself "I think I can, I think I can!"

Even getting used to winter clothing has ramped things up! All those extra layers feel cumbersome at first! And it is hard to get the warmth levels quite right!

Also, I still haven't got the last graphics for my YamDaisy Cafe folio quite sorted! And I am focusing my mind on the next step, it is not quite clear yet.

My daughter might be here for a week ~ such a treat! But I have to get the spare room sorted! Chuff chuff chuff!

The big new thing has been the possibility of working with a local organisation with their strategic planning. This one is in the process of incremental small steps just to see if we can work together. But I have been sorting and polishing my community development skills and preparing for a presentation. I am really excited about this, because if there is one thing to learn when living with chronic illness it is strategic planning!
I would so love to be able to contribute to my community in this way! Wish me luck please!

In the meantime blogging and cooking have fallen down to the bottom of my basket! Eep! Time to pull them out and sit them in their proper places! Yesterday I made a big pot of minestrone and today I am planning an eggplant curry and a cauliflower one! If I have got things right you just might see them in a blog post very soon!

Cheers everyone,
I am off for a walk in the sunshine!


  1. Good luck with your stategies, we keep our fingers crossed!

  2. Good luck with your strategic planning! I'm a little jealous that you're in fall getting ready for winter while we're headed into the oppressive heat of summer. :) Enjoy!

  3. Thankyou T and M! My meeting is on Tuesday!
    I do hope your summer is surprisingly not oppressive Migrainista!
