and Considerations

Showcase for my thoughts, general and specific

I’m a bit of a rambler – and not of the exercise persuasion.
I love words, and thoughts, and ideas.
I’m also very principled, my husband used to consider me a tad too principled, but now we realise it’s highly likely to be one of my autistic traits.

My blogs that you’ll find here are reflections on my life, my health, and my thoughts on matters around me. The rants are about much the same things, but less generously expressed. Sometimes you just have to say it like it is. There’ll also be reviews on books, gizmos, and gadgets that I’ve found useful for my physical, mental, and emotional well-being. I won’t put on here anything that I don’t own or use or have read. Promise. Otherwise it’s not a truthful review and that is absolutely pointless.

There will also be updates on what I’m discovering or doing to give something back to the environment – or just not taking anything away.


Mulling over News stories, commenting on health issues, and reflecting on social matters.

My journey towards becoming more responsive to the needs of our planet.
