Just Wait for Clarity. It’s on it’s Way!

Sometimes things don’t go so well and I can say that’s not something that has passed me by.

Clarity is something we cannot demand on instantly like water from a tap, but we still do things any way we can. Saying that though it is not always the best policy.

So should we wait for the best time?

One thing that tells me when clarity has arrived is I usually say, “why didn’t you do it like that before?”

Hindsight is a wonderful thing if not for being totally useless. I say that in jest as it is something we cannot control and has the most perfect timing.

I see my self as a bit of an entrepreneur in that I like to try doing and making different things. Even with this blog I tried to make a gardening part but it did not fit. I tried a second WordPress blog and again it did not fit. I had a Facebook page for a long time but it felt the wrong media.
Finally I made a Tumblr page which seems the best fit… until next time. My reason is that WP doesn’t have the visual element as Tumblr does. WP is mostly text driven.

My latest garden blog:


And that’s my overall point in that we do things because we have limited research or knowledge on the topics and then make decisions with limited scope.

And Finally

My note to take away from this is not to be afraid of making a decision and also not to be afraid of change later.

Let it snow so long as cloches are on

Its winter and the white stuff that children love is falling.

The problem with that is what can happen in the garden. Click below to read more on my garden blog.

Don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today

I haven’t released many posts recently. I have been writing though, but they haven’t made it to this page.

I guess I should practice what I preach and stop saving notes and start making posts.


Be in Control!

I heard this the other day from a motivational video I watched.

“If your mind created the problem, then your mind can fix the problem.”



Get the Kids in the Garden

My youngest has completely taken to the gardening life. He wants to cut the grass, cut old plants or to hoe the soil. My life has just got easier! 🙂

So I set about giving both my boys the task of sowing some seeds for radish, spinach and lettuce. These I chose as they are quick crops and the summer season is almost done.

With this I made some cloches to keep the soil warm a bit longer.


The first lesson for them was to make the drills for the seeds. Getting them NOT to make foot trenches was a challenge.


After that was the task of sparingly putting seeds into them.


Here’s my youngest hopefully covering gently the seeds.

And finally covering them in heavy plastic. It is quite surprising just how much hear they make.

I have to say this is a gamble considering the British weather. Yesterday for example was completely fogged out.

So in a week we will see if their work is successful 🙂


Flour Free Only Please

At what point do I state I don’t eat flour?

When or even why should it become common knowledge that there’s a situation?

I have seen first hand of a vegetarian who lived in a primarily meat driven society. He had problems in restaurants and with sharing foods as he could only have veggie only meals. I felt his pain.

Do I shut up or live like him?


A Strange Kind of Sympathy

I have also seen some people giving me sympathy about my lifestyle but in theory it was me that had sympathy for their poor eating. They looked at me as though I was an invalid, but compared to my health their health was worse.


Should I try to convince others to live like me? How or what could I say to them? And when does advice start to become preaching?

It’s a tough call but I always see this time as my better time.


What Inspires Us to Do the Things We Do?

I seem to speak about inspirational stuff in most of my posts about things that I’ve done or things that seem to trigger a curious streak within me but then I can ask to myself what inspires me.

I question this because it seems it’s an easy question as I write posts about similar things, but then to answer the question about what inspires me seems a lot more difficult almost the same kind question is when you have an interview so what is unique about yourself there’s also an insanely impossible question to answer maybe that is the reason

I think inspirational but what inspires me?

I read posts constantly from fellow bloggers and they have inspirational, motivational things in their lies and challenges aspirations.

So what can I do?

We all have activities, but what inspires us to do them?

  • Gardening
  • Sketches
  • Book writing
  • Travelling

I should lead more by example and not just explaining. I think this is now my inspirational moment to think of doing and not just being the teacher and so now I have a new mission as in what should what will make my inspirational journey more fulfilled.


My Australian Travel Book Is Now Free on Amazon for This Week


Hi faithful readers

I have a special announcement about my first novel/adventure book.

If you pick up a copy, may I ask for 5 star review please. I am a newish writer and I need help in getting known.

My Story

It took place in 2002 and centered around my lifelong mission to go Down Under. I stayed there for a year including a month in New Zealand. It was a dream come true and I wish I was back there now. It was truly life changing.


Special Times

It also included meeting a special person who later became my wife and mother of my 2 boys.

Thank you and enjoy!
