Paddington, Soul Journeys and Good Cappuccino

Sitting here with Paddington Bear at Paddington Station in London I’ve always had a fascination for trains and stations. My favourite station is Paddington. I love the architecture, the expanse of the place and the ambient yet buzzy vibe the place has.
I love watching all the people, busily going from A to B, stopping along the way for a coffee and a bite to eat.I’ve spent the last four days in London, sitting in cafes just relaxing the afternoons away drinking lots of coffee (I love soya cappuccinos), eating vegan cupcakes, wandering around, going to galleries, on an Access Consciousness bars course – (see this post about that) and generally having a little holiday.

Alt Latino – De Aquel El Amor: A Birthday Prayer For Gustavo Cerati in English & Spanish

Ahhh to be alive, he is to be sure, though it’s been a long journey since May 2010 for all the fans here and around the globe

I wish I had fab news to tell, all I know is he is getting better, very slowly. Some things just take a long time.

I’m glad he is having another birthday, sometimes the rumours and scaremongering weren’t on but that’s the media for you

There’s lots of activity around the world and in the next few days pertaining to birthday events, I’ve listed some here
On twitter check out the hashtags #fuerzacerati #CeratiCumple52 and my good friend @FuerzaCerati

A Bike, A Dress, A Zed, Permaculture and A New Blog

Busy, Jeez thought I’d never stop!

It’s great when things take off and move; more on why this happened so quickly later…
It’s good to get your feet under and really sort things out

I’ve always been an initiator, I like moving things along and I follow through sometimes it takes a while (lots of patience, faith and being a tad tenacious is important here) Though of late the moving part I don’t really need to do, which in my book is fab as it means a lot less effort on my part. How does it get any better than that? What else is possible?

Dress
I love it when things fall into place all by themselves and just seem to work out. One of my targets this year is getting fitter, never been really unfit, just wanted to be more toned and curvy; that’s been happening without me really having a proper fitness plan in place. This is where my new dress comes in… I love dresses, not really OTT flowery girly ones, just hourglass friendly shaped ones that make me feel like a million pounds. I haven’t bought any clothes for a while and I enjoyed buying my new dress; I’m not a huge shopping excursion fan, I prefer buying CD’s and wandering around market stalls and smaller vintage community shops/areas like Brick Lane & Portobello Road Market in London.

Spring Equinoxal Meanderings

Got the inspiration for this post from riding my bike the other day, it’s been quite chilly here and for some reason that I don’t quite understand I’ve always like my head covered when it’s cold –  I love hats, all kind of hats, berets are my favourite (note to self – find a shop that sells decent ones.) Maybe my mother instilled this into me when I was little as Scottish winters were sometimes quite fierce.

Me, my Mum and a dog

I was also walking down the street and actually took off my hat for good reason as it was actually too warm; the Spring Equinox is nearly upon us and I’m happy as the energy is changing again, the balance between night and day, the surge of new Spring energy is starting to kick in; coupled with a Full Moon in Virgo on Saturday 19th March (at its lunar perigee – closest to the Earth).  Here’s an excellent blog post about this Virgo full moon. It will be great for getting my hands in the soil and lots of practical work done. There is a lot going on celestially.

Love is all you need ~ seriously

Sometimes those damn curve balls drive you crazy, you feel there are no answers to anything, hopelessness, fear, so I asked the question ( I’m all about asking the question as it works. It’s been bothering me a lot, about what to do…. Here is the answer

                                                                                     

This photo was taken in a taxi on the way to work this morning, not being a morning person I watched the bus zoom past me… ooops… oh well. I’ve gone past that a million times and never seen it – funny how things pop up when you need them the most. Love… Jeez I wasn’t expecting that; as being in judgement well it was so much safer –  blame, anxiety, worry, hey isn’t that much more fun!

This post is all about simple good food, it’s not that difficult to make I’ve included instructions and pictures.
There’s a Leek and Carrot Flan, Popcorn, Banana & Chocolate Cake and a Lemon Cheesecake

I love making flans… I’d bake them all the time if I could :)here’s a Leek and Carrot Flan I have also made a Carrot and Tofu Flan see this recipe

I followed a recipe from The Vegan Cookbook (and here is the updated version of the book), but as usual I’ve messed with the recipe again as that’s only for the Carrot Flan and I LOVE leeks with a passion!
