I had my first ever snow day today!!! I’d never seen proper, heavy snow before today. And it was amazing! The best snow day ever!
It was simply brilliant! For me that is. The ‘Beast from the East’ wasn’t great news for a lot of people but it did fulfill my dream of having fun in snow!

I’ve recently discovered the wonder of …the oven. I know its existed for ages but I never really used it before, preferring to use the hob most of the time. But a friend got me interested in oven baked squash and now I am a oven lover. Its my new best friend! Its so perfect for a quick meal. I’ve been experimenting a little bit, not too well versed in using an oven. But I’ve made a really weird combination of vegetables that I really enjoyed eating today! PS. I’m sorry for the truly awful presentation but I was too hungry to make it look nicer! Continue reading “Oven baked Herbtastic veggies”
Are we good or bad? I bet you’re thinking, what sort of a question is that?! Of course we’re good people! But I meant from a wider perceptive, a whole Earth perspective… Just imagine…Imagine you’re an elephant, would you consider humans as good? Those two legged creatures who hunt you for your teeth, who climb on you for rides, who tie you to a post or make you walk hundreds of miles? What about if you’re a tree who’s being cut down?
This is just the beginning of a series of posts on the different areas where humans have completely meddled with the way nature works and how the Earth’s system itself has changed because of it.

Every year, my birthday reveals something about myself to me. With every year I get older, I learn more about myself. Its easy to feel like you know yourself pretty well, but life keeps surprising you. Continue reading “Me, myself and my birthday”
Every day, every month, every year
Every time I came to see you,
I would have to say goodbye,
Any time could be the last
with you. Continue reading “Expected, yet so unexpected”
So I just watched the film ‘Murder on the Orient Express’, directed by Kenneth Branagh, and I have to say….I wasn’t very impressed.
I’d be in the minority here and I’m sure most of you guys loved it, but I ….didn’t. Chalked it up to the fact that Murder on the Orient Express was and still is, one of my favorite novels. I spent a lot of my teenage avoiding dealing with real life situations by reading about all the atrocities of human kind through Agatha Christie’s enthralling books. It wasn’t long till Hercule Poirot captured my interest, my imagination and my heart. Actually, it was halfway though the first book!

I’m not sure if a lot of people have similar views but I love cartoons! It’s definitely socially expected that once you’re over a certain age, you stop watching cartoons and engage in more intellectual pass times. At my age (which shall remain under wraps!), watching cartoons is definitely a no- no. But, as is now evident, it is my guilty pleasure. Nothing like getting your inner child out once in a while to make you forget how stressful being an adult can be!
One animation show I’ve been watching recently, is Milo Murphy’s Law. Haven’t watched it? You’re missing out! Continue reading “Milo Murphy’s Law – The love of the child in me”
