Love Intensive Therapy for Gustavo Cerati

In Spanish – from MinutoUno.com.ar

No morirá lo que debe sobrevivir a una terapia de amor intensiva. Si algo está enfermo, está con vida”, supo cantar Gustavo Cerati en un tema que hoy, dada la coyuntura médica que atraviesa, podría llegar a convertirse en una bandera de lucha de todos los fanáticos que siguen, minuto a minuto, la evolución del ex Soda.

Con el objetivo de hacerle llegar, al menos desde lo simbólico, un mensaje de aliento, un grupo de fanáticos realizó una suerte de terapia intensiva virtual en la que, inicialmente, se puede ver el parte médico más crítico emitido por el Instituto Fleni, lugar en el que se encuentra internado Cerati.

Vegan Cake,Truffles and Trifle – Yummy

Since I’ve been here in Scotland here with my dear Sister, she baked me a cake when I arrived ( the banana and date one), it was so nice ( we ate it with cups of tea and with help from my dad), so she baked another one this morning, we’ve had a morning & afternoon just baking, and listening to my loved tracks on last fm it’s been great as I’m on holiday here for a while and I so need a holiday.

We’ve made a trifle, rum truffles and the banana and date cake

Banana and Date Cake

This is so easy to make, my sister has a small baby (24 weeks old) and she can make it in between feeds.

Grace and Gratitude

High above, in the clouds on my way to Edinburgh ~ 26th June 2010

I should really be fast asleep, listening to my meditation cd on my Squeezebox, drifting into la-la land, but I’m here getting inspiration for a new blog post instead… the idea for this post came about by having a good day, it’s been a little while since I’ve felt one of those really well and today was it

It’s starting to come back the feelings of grace and gratitude within me, which is nice.

They are such lovely feelings, well really states of beingness as that’s where you are with grace and gratitude they are like sisters who are just close and you know that they get on like a house on fire. The appreciation of life I have is phenomenal and it helps me deal with all the stuff that crops up in my life.  I know on a deep level that everything has an order even the chaos is an illusion and I do my best to hold steadfast and see the grace in all situations.

In My Garden Sitting With Contentment

My Garden  ~ June 20th 2010

I’m sitting in my garden at my outdoor table and chairs, smelling my honeysuckle bush in blossom writing this on the laptop, I love my wireless router… 😀

June is a lovely time in my garden, I’m not the best gardener in the world, but in June my garden seems to get itself together and look fabulous with very little effort from me, my dad helped me quite a few years ago to plant some shrubs and bushes I’ve added a few more over the years and now it has kind of grown into itself. (Though I’d love a man to come round and mow the lawn on regular basis)

I’m sat here barefoot with my feet in the grass, (I’ve got a nice canopy umbrella as I wouldn’t be able to see what I’m typing if I didn’t.) I’m sat here being so hardcore drinking milk (soya)

I’ve managed to get my squeezebox boom from the kitchen outside enough so I can hear it very well (though it’s in the shade as don’t want that overheating) I can change the music as I have my duet remote control. I’m listening  to a shuffle playlist of P J Harvey I’ve already covered my love for her here.

Leamington Peace Festival & Hammocks

Beanie’s Duck

I’ll explain who Beanie is later… the duck stayed at home while we went to….. the Peace Festival in Leamington yesterday ( it would have been today but I wrote the Eddie Cochran post first), it’s a yearly event and they have lots of great music, stalls and food. I went with my friends Zee and Kory.

Eddie Cochran – 50 Years Gone

A beautiful Eddie Cochran

It’s 50 years since Eddie Cochran died in April 1960 in a car accident, aged 21, he died before I was even born so no chance of ever seeing him perform his music, oh to have a time machine like H. G. Wells (see his book)
I first noticed him in my teenage years through Marc Bolan of  T. Rex doing a cover of Summertime Blues, I read he’d carried Eddie Cochran’s guitar … lucky, lucky man! Eddie’s music is as popular now as it was 50 years when he died, I’ve selected some of the songs that I love the most, give them a whirl 😀

Sofas and Smoothies

Well,

I was writing a completely different post earlier and this kinda just popped into being all by itself
So this one is first, as it’s about home comforts and food.
Being the Taurean lady that I am; a comfy sofa is the ultimate in pleasure for me 😀

My other sofa – bless, is looking a little tired and it just wasn’t long enough (it’s an important consideration as I have long legs), even though I have fallen asleep on it a million times and squished too many people on it!
It was time for a change

So it comes to the time when a new sofa is to be acquired, luck would have it that my sister was selling hers and I said to her first dibs on it.

It was my birthday last month and my dear dad helped by getting it shipped down to me (we live 300 miles apart)

So after scrubbing the floor and moving the other sofa (might put it in my therapy room, need to measure it to see if it fits first) I haven’t contemplated how I’m going to get the other sofa up the stairs…. eeek
I won’t discuss the state of my stairs after dropping a wardrobe down them (well it was heavy and yes I did it on my own) Continue reading

Mirror, Mirror

Ahhh Epiphanies great things they are, when the “baseball bat of Life” finally hits you and the jigsaw pieces actually fit.

I was listening to  Get it on by Grinderman this morning – Friday 28th May, just an ordinary day, nothing special as I was getting ready for work and then it suddenly hit me
It’s so bloody obvious and I already had the knowledge – I had used it before and had forgotten about it, how we all get so distracted by the drama of life ( I just needed reminding again, it’s great when you are clear and just know what the next step is)
