17th March, the day the world celebrates Irishness.


01.01.16 is here. ..

Happy New Year ! The first day of 2016 is here along with my passion for pen and paper. Here is a quick peek inside my main planner / organiser….


For 2016, my monthly diary is a two page layout. I am hoping to keep my handwriting on the smallish side in order to write in the squares neatly.


I’m sticking with the horizontal week on two pages. It worked well for me last year.


This Filofax has a get things done / to do section, in which I use undated week on two pages to list my tasks for the week.


I am looking forward to 2016 and my adventures of putting pen to paper….

International Nurses Day


Happy International Day to all my nursing colleagues, friends and family who are in the nursing profession.

It is often thought that medicine is the curative process. It is no such thing; medicine is the surgery of functions, as surgery proper is that of limbs and organs. Neither can do anything but remove obstructions; neither can cure; nature alone cures. Surgery removes the bullet out of the limb, which is an obstruction to cure, but nature heals the wound. So it is with medicine; the function of an organ becomes obstructed; medicine so far as we know, assists nature to remove the obstruction, but does nothing more. And what nursing has to do in either case, is to put the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon him.

online, offline…

Welcome to my brand new weblog. I am not new to the blogsphere as I have been blogging since 2006 mainly from a knitter’s perspective.

I am also an online social butterfly on Facebook, Instagram, Ravelry and Twitter.
