Well, here i am with a brand new theme (again). I think this is third one i’ve had in a quest to find somewhere that i really feel at home. I wanted to find a softer look with a more friendly feel to it. I wanted the colours to be muted as opposed to garish purple as on my last page. The text, i think, is clearer and easier to read both in the headings and the body of the text.


Well, i think i finally do feel at home here with my cosy little houses, modern leafy trees. a bright, shining, yellow sun at the top of the page and a few random shapes dotted here and there….enough to make it look interesting. Well, so i think. You’ll have to let me know what your personal opinion is.


I’m having trouble configuring my widgets and categories though and could use some advice if anyone would care to share some (please?). I’ve yet to find how to add my category cloud.


Why do i always leave it till the last thing at night before i start writing or messing about with my themes. I ought to be going to bed early as i have to be up at 5.30am every morning as my carers come just after 6am and i like to be up and awake – as much as can be anyway (I am disabled, if you hadn’t already guessed and are fairly new to my blog). Not that i let that or much else, come to that, get in the way of me enjoying life, being happy and being very content with my lot. So, on the whole (unless i think about my earlier life of abuse which still raises it’s ugly head from time to time), i am a happy, smiley, please and thank you type of bod!


And with that happy image, i think i really ought to go to bed before the clock strikes midnight and i turn into a pumpkin.


Whoops! Puss-cat says, “Well, Ellie, you have gone and done it now, turned into a pumpkin, just as i warned”. Goodnight all! xx ๐Ÿ™‚

Writing my memoirs, musings, a little fiction and a lot of poetry as a way of exploring and making the most of my life ... ... Having had a break from writing my blog for more than three years, I decided to return to write my memoirs, some day-to-day observations, views and feelings. My passion is non-fiction poetry. I have a disability and use an electric powerchair called Alfie and let nothing get in the way of living life to the full. I believe that you can never do a kindness too soon and should give credit where credit is due. A smile or a kind word could make the difference between a good or bad day for a person - we never know what's going on for another soul. Those little things, perhaps, practised daily like a mantra, could mean so much to someone else. Thank you for visiting my blog and reading a little more about me. Please, make yourself at home here. You are very welcome. Ellie x ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. PRETTY!!!!!! I love your new theme. It kinda goes with what you were commenting on regarding the art therapy too…. the brighter the colors, the happier we tend to feel ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the new “you” (as this is the only “you” I know! New outfit!) ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ hehe love it

  2. Thank you :). I hope i can keep the ‘new me’ going as i like being in that place :). But there is still the ‘old me’ that raises her ugly head from time to time wearing the worn out jeans and the t-shirt with holes in although i much prefer the new outfit! xxx

  3. lol ๐Ÿ™‚ this made me smile. I’m writing today to try to break out of my darkness. I just posted about how this blogging world has helped me, and I included your name in it. It is my way of saying thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support recently. Please take care of yourself.

  4. I’m glad it made you smile (smiling is good for you!) and i’m glad this helped you get through some of your pain, which i know is all-consuming. Sending hugs xxx ๐Ÿ™‚
