About me.

I have a very happy life with my husband and our wonderful dog Maddie, living in Hampshire, Southern England.

My life is what I would call ‘small’ because I am chronically ill, but it has taught me to budget my energy so now I only spend time with people I love and doing things I really enjoy.  I appreciate every day and make the most of everything.

I have very few relatives as most are now in spirit. I have an identical twin sister who is 10 minutes older than me and she lives about 10 miles away.  Sadly she is disabled having had a brain haemorrage and massive stroke.

I am so thankful for the wonderful friends in my life who share my love of all things spiritual.

My favourite saying:
“Life turns out best for the people who make the best out of the way life turns out”

      Thanks so much for your message. I haven’t been too well for a while now. I’ve been chronically ill for over 18 years and my illness goes through ups and downs but since last July, when I had shingles, I’ve not been so good. The good news is that I am feeling much better than I was six months ago – so it’s onwards and upwards from here!:)

    Oops, I’m confusing myself by trying to handle two awards at once. I nominated you for a Sunshine Award, not the Versatile Blogger: http://bluegrassnotes.wordpress.com/2012/03/04/versatile-blogger-award-and-sunshine-award-yeah/

      Nice to meet you too Pat,

      I am so delighted to have found your blog.

      I am, more and more, in awe of the amazing technology that enables us to meet such wonderful souls throughout the world .. aren’t we so fortunate to have been born at this time? 🙂

    I looked for your blog when you first connected to mine and couldn’t find any. I am glad I went back looking. It’s nice to meet you 🙂

      I’m so pleased you did too! Blogging has opened up a whole new world for me, and the technology has made it possible to meet up with like minded souls throughout the world. I really feel we are so very fortunate to be alive at this time – would have been pretty difficult to be in contact even just a few years ago.

    Love your quote… mind if I share it? Who should I credit it too? Decided to “follow” your blog, really liking what I am seeing so far. Keep up the great work.

      Do you mean the ‘Life turns out best’ quote? I have no idea where that came from. I tried searching on google but couldn’t find it. Thank you for following my blog. I’m sending you PT’s. Hope you get them!

    Thanks for your encouragement today. I am a fledgling blogger and I’m getting some wonderful ideas from your blog set up. What a pro you are! I’ll enjoy coming back to visit you and reading more~

    Thanks so much for popping into my day!

      I had to laugh Rise’, I am not a pro at all. I too am very much a fledgling with all of this. I only went to the library last week and borrowed a book entitled “Blogging for Dummies” so that I could understand the ins and outs of everything. I started this blog almost by ‘accident’ and then had to work out what I was doing!

      I am sure many people will enjoy your blog and would like to put a link to it on my blog if you are happy with that.

      I look forward to reading more of your blog too!

        How gracious of you. I think it would be wonderful to be linked on each others blogs. I suppose that would be easy to do once I look into it. My url: http://guidelights7.wordpress.com
        Pls give me your URL also.
        It’s ThanksGiving here today. I dont suppose that holiday is observed in the UK. We Americans seem to need a holiday to remind us to practice gratitude.. Grateful I ran into you dear lady~ God Bless

          Dear Resa, I asked my husband, Simon, about my URL and he said it was the web address of my blog, which is, I gather http://handinhandwithspirit.com but I think I managed to link your blog on my blog by using a blogroll, which lists the blogs that I am following. I don’t know if your theme has one or these as I gather they are all quite different. Its amazing how we have all managed to get our blogs on the net isn’t it? What with all this technical jargon etc, I often think it’s quite a miracle, but as they say, where there’s a will, there’s a way … on the plus side Simon is an IT Manager, so I am very lucky having a ‘professional’ sitting next to me most of the time!
          Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving day!

            You’re such a sweet woman. Yes, you are fortunate to have a husband in IT but I seem to muddle through eventually. Running into helpful folks like you certainly helps!

            God Bless~

    Much easier site to navigate. Hopefully you’ll receive this comment (no.4!)
    i love your style Tish. I feel like you are reading it to me.
    I hope Simon has recovered (& Annette!)
