In celebration of World Poetry Day, here's one I wrote earlier!
World Poetry Day
Poetry has always been a love of mine. I don't claim to be a bard(!) but I enjoy dabbling from time to time and you'll see a link to one of my books of poems in the righthand sidebar. This sonnet appears in it. The idea was that the reader should identify t...

We can celebrate something every day, sometimes bizarre sometimes less so!
A Great Day for Lame Ducks!
Did you know that today, Monday 6 February, is designated Lame Duck Day?; comforting perhaps for anyone so afflicted but not, maybe, something that many of us are aware of or would plan to celebrate. So how about Frozen Yogurt Day instead? Yes, it's that to...

Time for a little list that the girls can buy!
Bounteous Beneficence for Your Beau!
All you ladies know that Valentine's Day is looming up and thoughts naturally turn to getting a gift for our other halves. And men get something of a bad press as gift recipients! As ever, it depends on the individual and keeping an open mind. Please click ...

Here are a few ideas for the Boys!
The Valentine Male - Step up to the Plate Boys!
Two of the world's oldest 'arts' are those of loving and giving, which in a couple of weeks' time are handily combined when we give tokens of love to our 'significant other'. They can be fun or fancy, cheap and cheerful or breathtakingly expensive - I'm thi...

When it comes to Blue Monday we've got plenty to be blue about! ;)
Hooray for Blue Monday!
As Mondays go, today is rather notorious. We're all supposed to be feeling blue: because Christmas has been and gone, our New Year's Resolutions have already begun to slip, maybe we're short of cash, and we're longing for a warm, sunny holiday. Life can be ...

Candles definitely come into their own at this time of year and we have a super selection of festive fragrances.
The Spice of Life!
Autumn and Winter may bring darker evenings and colder weather but that also gives us the perfect excuse, if any were needed, to brighten our surroundings with the welcoming glow and comforting fragrance of scented candles. And warm, spicy notes or crisp, f...

We took part in the Small Business Saturday UK tour stop in Edinburgh yesterday and you can read about it here.
Catching the Small Business Saturday Bus in Edinburgh!
The SBS tour bus rolls into Edinburgh Well, despite having LOTS of wrapping paraphernalia, I didn't quite have enough ribbon to wrap the Small Business Saturday bus when it made its tour stop in Edinburgh on 25 October, so I concentrated on smaller items as...

What's in a name? I was intrigued why some of us say Autumn and some say Fall, here's what I found.
Autumn, by any other name still as Glorious!
Gifts with an autumnal glow! Strange isn't it? Some say Autumn and some say Fall. Apparently, before the 16th century we all referred to this season as Harvest, a term that's still used by some of our European cousins with Herfst in Dutch or Herbst in Germa...
