Marvelling At The Mary El Tarot (2nd Edition)

Having reviewed and featured a number of tarot decks on this here blog, I was recently contacted by Schiffer (Red Feather) asking whether I would like to review a few more of their amazing tarot decks – well why not?! I was honoured to be asked to collaborate with Schiffer and couldn’t wait to be able to work with yet more tarot decks.

Schiffer enquired as to which decks I may be interested in featuring and having flicked through their incredibly tempting catalogue, I asked whether it may be possible to have a copy of the new and revised second edition of The Mary El Tarot  – a tarot deck which I’d heard of but never yet seen…

Low and behold I was in luck and as a result, I am so pleased to be able to share this beautiful tarot deck with you, my lovely readers.…

Shuffling Through The Spirit Within Tarot

Being an avid tarot card reader, I am also a keen deck collector and whilst living in lockdown over the past few months, I have whiled away some of my time by getting to grips with reading and using a variety of new tarot decks, including the marvellously modern and super stylish ‘Spirit Within Tarot‘ which Red Feather (Schiffer Publishing) very kindly sent me to review.

The Spirit Within Tarot was designed and created by Steven Bright (born in London in 1972), a professional tarot reader who is also the creator of two tarot decks, a keen blogger, a tarot reviewer, and the founder of Tiferet Tarot. …

#LivingArrows – School Places & Happy Faces 25/52 (2020)

With all that’s happened since this year began, I’m not sure as to whether I actually explained our situation in regards to our son’s secondary school transition.

Going back to March, we’d just been landed with the news that my Father was to undergo immediate brain surgery, and whilst we were unaware of his diagnosis at this point, you can imagine that things were fairly fraught. To add to our stress, we were then told that the secondary school which our son had hoped to attend was over-subscribed and as a result, he was offered his second-choice which wasn’t really what he nor I was hoping to hear.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Beach Battles

This looks like a fun-filled fabulous photo, right? WRONG! A picture only captures a split second, a moment in time, and whilst this split-second appears to capture two smiling, happy children, let me just fill you in on the thirty minutes prior to this photo being taken…

Last week we had a series of rather impressive thunderstorms, one of which our daughter heard the faint onset of whilst out on a walk with her Dad, brother, and our basset. It was the tiniest rumble of thunder, yet E’s rather sudden and extreme response was to quite literally force her way into her Dad’s T-shirt, all whilst screaming and crying to get home.…

#MySundaySnapshot – Back When Things Were Rosy 25/52 (2020)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

 I’ve spent this past week or two nostalgically looking back to a time in my life when things seemed rosy.

I’ve found myself reminiscing upon happier times by listening to music, playing video games, reading books, and even watching footage from festivals and such-like from way back when things were ‘normal’.

Normality is so far from reach right now I cannot even begin to explain… so rather than try to explain, I’ll simply share this beautiful image of rose which I captured earlier this month.…
