Some of these things will be written/enthused about on here.

I am prone to getting my knickers in a knot over certain issues that I feel strongly about – you can quietly laugh at me as I go off on one  – yet again.

I’m currently interested in gluten-free foods and ways to control daily headaches, migraines and aches and pains – that may be Sjogrens disease/Fibromyalgia.(More on that later.) If I find anything interesting on this, or any good recipes I’ll share on here.

The Daisy dog ( a retired greyhound) looms large in my life and I’m currently training her). My experiences and other useful titbits are been ploughed into a book that I hope to publish later on this year.

The Daisy dog hard at it.

I mostly write about dogs and pets,( I have been published in several publications) but I am branching out into other areas… more about that when I’ve found the branch I’m looking for.

As I write and learn ( and we’re all constantly learning, aren’t we?) I try to share my successes and failures with you. Failure is probably the wrong word, because it’s better to try… and miss the mark, than not try at all.

I hope you will find something to interest you and thanks for dropping by.

Don’t be shy… say “hi” and I’ll drop by your blog.
