That Time Again

It is that time of the
year again, tomorrow
marks another year
older for me.
I have no fear 
of ageing , I plan
to embrace the wisdom
that comes with the
passage of time.
Part of the wisdom
is to accept the 
passage that life takes
us on, even if the
road is never as smooth
as we hope.
I plan to embrace
new experiences
even if they are  out
of my comfort zone.

Enjoying my own
peaceful back yard
and never underestimating
the therapy of time spent

Another of the joys
of ageing is that
you care less
what others think,
I find this so freeing.

I plan to
continue to
explore my own 
style, changing and
tweaking along the 
way .
I take inspiration
from anywhere
it presents itself,
especially the many
bloggers I have had the
honour to discover.

I enjoy the
world of both
vintage and thrifting
and  hope to expand
my interest and uncover
more treasures, hopefully
more summer hats.

I am looking forward
to a new year filled
with the joy of family
and friends and not
forgetting new pets.
Our little pup, Raffy,
is growing like a mushroom
and is a little white bundle
of mischief  and fun.

Another Birthday, Another Outfit.




  1. My dear, wonderful, gorgeous, kind and wise Jill! Happy Birthday to You!!!!! You wrote so beautifully, and I absolutely see you just the way you describe - open to life, with no fear of life, experimenting and growing! Yes, this is You! I hope you have the most amazing time with the people (and pets!) who love you. You look beautiful, such a harmony with your gorgeous garden! You are like an exotic bird sitting on a branch of a blooming bush on that first photo. :)
