ode to Sinead and Jake

When you told me you were getting married, I smiled in disbelief… after all these years?! I’m sure that even your parents felt some relief. You two aren’t a typical whirlwind romance, But rather, slow burners – giving your love a real chance. I didn’t imagine either of you as the “fairytale wedding” types But…

family, life, and everything after

Love is a funny thing; It lightens your soul and brings you firmly back to ground. It lifts your spirits, And makes you want more… It fills your heart, your essence, your being And in the next instant it can turn so ugly, So poor… An afterthought, as communication breaks down And once accepted contentment…

We are one

There is a lot going on in the world right now – especially the bad and the ugly… but there are also beautiful moments too. This video by TV2 Denmark truly reinforces the message that we are not alone, that despite our backgrounds, or what we do for a living now, we connect on so…

New word wonder…

Someone recently called me pulchritudinous – I thought they were being rude!  Still learning, every day…  After I looked it up, I blushed – and humbly said, “Thank you”… I have never been amazing at accepting compliments, lol.

Home…?!

Home. Funny word that. Home is where my parents are. Or the hotel in whichever country I am travelling around. Or my bedroom in my flat share. Or my sisters’ flats, when they cook me good food. Or my friends’ homes, when I stay overnight. I have always felt like I am still searching for…

I love those moments…

I drive along country roads in autumn; warm, vibrant, coloured leaves fall from the trees, dancing, twirling around the top of the car in front, and swirling in a mini hurricane that I drive through unseen. Waking up on a Saturday morning in my own bed, not hungover, and realising I don’t have to work…

Sunday is funday with the fam…

I love spending time with my surrogate family, especially on a lazy September Sunday, on the grass, in the sun, with apple tart and cream teas…  #lovemylife #lovelife #loveluxembourg Jojo xx

Bed’s warmth calls again

  The sun was rising, a haze filling the skyline ahead The frost kissing the grass, leaving it’s gentle sparkle The low cloud hugging the hilltops as we drove along Eurythmics serenaded us as our dreams slipped further away While work drew closer with every second Exciting but dismal as our days stretched before us…

Whirlwind inter-connectivity

The world runs rivers To the seas The earth crossed with blue shades of arteries. Pulsing lives All intertwined All connected Nothing planned Nothing certain Constantly shifting, changing course Joining others as they make their choice. Our souls run this path also Colliding with one another in serendipity Some join and flow together for all…

Until

Until I find you I will be dating the ocean and its breeze Until you find me flirt with every cycle of the moon as you breathe Until I am ready for you I will be kissing the sun good morning and good evening Until you are ready for me make love to the seven…
