This photo was taken in December 2014 by one of the Daughters, while we were walking towards Oxford Street, London.
Believe it or not, Loving Husband & I did not coordinate our coats & backpacks – it just worked out that way.
This is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Partners.
Thinking of doors & what might be behind them & the stories that follow, I am reminded of Alice & her adventures in Wonderland. She fell into the rabbit hole, but she chose to open the door, despite encountering some difficulty. Continue reading “Down the Rabbit Hole”
My Fellow Food-Intolerance Sufferer requested some raisin oatmeal cookies: she tried the Chocolate Chip & Pomegranate Oatmeal cookies I made some weeks back and loved them!
As my friend is gluten-intolerant, I used Orgran Gluten-Free All Purpose flour in place of the flour recommendation in the recipe from my favourite Almost-Vegan Food Site, MyCaliforniaRoots.com. This time I omitted the pomegranate & used raisins instead.
Another batch of delicious and more-ish cookies! Very dangerous to keep around (I can’t stop eating them!!!!) Try them if you dare!

These are expressions of pure glee as as we enjoy a downhill stretch from Kent Ridge Park! Continue reading “Pure Glee: running on the Southern Ridges”
This is the story of how I became Choosy Chia, a superhero who is able to clear huge mounds of salad in a single bound, to snarf a bowl of oatmeal in record time, and to eat around non-vegetarian dishes with grace & aplomb! Continue reading “Choosy Chia: a Superhero Origin Story”
We’ve had this license plate number for almost 20 years.
When I first met Loving Husband, he was driving a Toyota Starlet with this license number; it was his parents’s car which they passed on to him with when he went to university. Continue reading “Numbers in Remembrance”
Taking the time to put on a face mask was not part of my beauty regime – splashing water, and maybe occasionally soaping my face was more my speed. Continue reading “Lush Fresh Face Masks”
