Oops, another long hiatus for me it would seem! Time just seems to get the better of me at times, Christmas was so hectic what with Mum having daily radiotherapy 20 miles away and all the family obligations and so on. Then January and Feb just sort of got lost in my own illness and the shocking weather we had- more snow than was cared for. And that sort of left me today realising how much i miss just being able to escape into the little blog that has been left all abandoned.

I'll continue my alphabet theme but i've also been baking- a lot actually, it's a sort of therapy for me, i don't get to eat any of the goods but it's more the baking that can help me at times so i don't mind, plus my family seem to be more than happy to sample things for me! So, if it interests anyone i shall post a collection of my latest offerings from the oven.

So, expect to see me popping up in your comment boxes again soon, and for alphabet letters to be back on the agenda once again. I'm hoping this blog will bring me back a little therapeutic relief too so here goes.

Country/Place to visit;


And no, not just for the kitkats- although i have to admit it is a factor as i have been intrigued by the beautiful little boxes that i get sent form Japan with the mysterious and wonderful flavours! It is however for me, more for the geography- i think it looks absolutely spectacular, i can't say i'd be a big fan of Tokyo as i am a true country bumpkin but i'd love to ride the bullet train and visit the mountains, go snowboarding, walking around the historic temples and just witness for myself a totally different culture to my own.



Any variety would suit me, i love jam, always have, always will! I bought myself a jam thermometer before Christmas and would love to just spend a day surrounded by jars and labels and just create little bottles of sweet goodness and let the colours just shimmer through the thick glass. Imagine the scene from Baby boom with the apple sauce and you pretty much get in my head!

Jewellery Tree

I want something so badly as my current display is getting really overcrowded- especially thanks to my amazing best friend who send me treats in the post- and when i saw this it sort of fits the bill. Ideally i would love to have an abstract piece made that would look like a tree growing from the floor up, flat at first but then the branches would grow outwards and become my hooks, i'd love them to have tiny led lights in too so at night the pieces could take on a life of their own.



Just for the simple purity alone this one wins for me, nature can produce the most elaborate and amazing things but sometimes it's simplest forms are the best. Add in the exotic fragrance and it just becomes mesmerising.



It's no surprise it's another cat species for me. I was tempted by jellyfish because of the amazing nature of them but i can't resist the big cat. Fast and amazingly dexterous this big cat is one of the finest. To see one in the wild must just be exhilarating- if not a little scary, i just hope that they don't disappear for good, we lose too many animals on this earth, i don't want this to be another.

So, J at last, is done.

I do hope everyone is well and doing ok- i have an awful lot of catching up to do but i shall look forward to catching up with you all and what has happened in your lives.



  1. J.

    I cant think of anything to describe you with for J,
    so...I love you MORE THAN JELLY BEANS

  2. Dont apologize. Life happens and it seems like you have a lot going on. I love that jewelry tree and what a neat idea you have for a jewelry tree.

  3. Oh I would also love to visit Japan! While I was growing up, my family used to host foreign exchange students who would come to America to study at a university in my town. Many of them were from Japan and they would show us tons of awesome photos of their country. It would be a beautiful place to see! :)

  4. I think this is so cool
    I never wouldve thought of doing it.
    Ive been catching up reading the list, and I havent been commenting, so my apologies.

    hope youre having a lovely day,
    Love, Andy

  5. I hope your Mom is doing better. I'm so glad I found you. Your blog is really interesting and I'll be back often to see what's going on.
