The second month of the new year is coming to an end, which means I am just a little bit behind schedule. As I was writing my last blog on the last day of 2022, I decided that I would have a blog out every month in 2023, at a minimum. January is said toContinue reading “Come on, let’s do it!”

Be kind to yourself, or kindness to myself!
I cannot believe that it has been nearly four months since my last blog. How easily one loses lose track of time and gets caught on the naïve thinking of “I still have plenty of time”. How often we forget that time flies, it does indeed! As usual, my brain has been busy working onContinue reading “Be kind to yourself, or kindness to myself!”
The Emerald Isle, my five years anniversary!
Today is the 28th of June, which means that five years ago, I landed in Rosslare! This followed: saying goodbye to family and friends; an epic drive through France with my car packed with clothes, houseware, and some food essentials; tearful goodbye to my parents at the harbour in Cherbourg; a sixteen-hour journey on theContinue reading “The Emerald Isle, my five years anniversary!”
The Emerald Isle, its people!
I have finally managed to focus on my exciting blog project: my five blogs about Ireland. My humble homage to the emerald isle as I am heading to my fifth-year anniversary of moving here. It is somehow scary to realise how quickly time passes by and seems like only yesterday when I landed in Rosslare.Continue reading “The Emerald Isle, its people!”
Home is where the soul finds peace…
I cannot believe it; my last blog was in August last year! Time flies, doesn’t it? My 2020 blog postings were very productive with plenty of inspiration. On the contrary, my 2021 posts turned out to be a bit quieter, not as I had thought it would though. As I look back, the lack ofContinue reading “Home is where the soul finds peace…”
The storm seems to be over; puddles are now a pool for the birds. The sun is shinning again, petrichor is still around. The courtyard lushness enhances the view from the kitchen. Inspiration is definitely here and so is my cup of tea. A while ago I was talking to one of my students andContinue reading “Downtime…”
The unknown path…
I cannot even think of the last time I sat in front of my laptop to write on my blog! The only thing that I am sure is that it was a dull day, I had my cup of tea, a candle trying to brighten up the room and my inspiration was on fire! ItContinue reading “The unknown path…”
Life is too short therefore you cannot afford to waste any chances life blesses you with. Make the most out of every instant. If we all kept in mind that “later can be too late”, we would be busy trying to seize the moment we have to relish. Sadly, we tend to postpone projects, whatContinue reading “Making memories!”
The Music of life!
I am looking out of the window, just a miserable dull day. Lots of rain, windy, not too cold, pretty dark indeed. It would have been very easy to give in and feel down, to mirror the greyness of the day. It would have been effortless to let sorrow conquer my mood, feeling sorry forContinue reading “The Music of life!”
I am back and no time is also back! Since mid June work has taken over most of my time again, or should I say my energy? I spend seven and a half hours a day in front of the laptop fully focused on reading and more reading. You can all imagine that once IContinue reading “Unexpectedly unexpected!”
