      1. Congratulations, so thrilled for you. Have missed your musings madly. Maybe I'll phone deliberately very soon and you can tell me all the details of Maharishi, marriage and Macs (two of which I am actively considering myself!)

  1. Congratulations and welcome back! I've missed reading about your life! Bless your Dad for having such a wonderful sense of humor!

  2. Lol. Have just noticed that I typed "Thinks I've been thinking about instead of "things". It made me laugh so I'm leaving it there. Anybody else got Thinks to think about??

    1. Thank you Darling… I do wish he would get round to the proposal though… a person could die holding her breath for this long!

  4. Hi – I have tried finding the Patty Fairfield books on amazon but i can't find kindle editions of them – are they by carolyn wells and what did you type in the search box ?

  5. Oh Alison, welcome back! I was prepared to bear your absence because I know you needed it for you, but I am so pleased you are back! Never, ever apologise for being just who you are here, it is what makes Brocante Home so fab! Dont worry for a moment about what we want, I love learning and exploring as Brocante Home evolves. And don't worry about monetising it either….there is enough free content to please anybody, and the paid for stuff is worth its weight in gold!
    Now, tell us more please, is there to be a formal proposal, any signs of twinkly rings yet?

  6. I am SO VERY glad that you're back! I've really missed you and your insight and humor and gentle nudging. Phew! I agree with Mimi, that the paid for stuff is worth it's weight in gold. Thank you.

  7. Ps I forgot to say….do share your ebay name so we can all go bidding on your treasures! x

  8. Just checked in by chance, and what a wonderful surprise to see your post. My, you have been busy. It all sounds wonderful – marriage, new school and a Mac. I entered my second marriage 13 years ago when my son was 12 (I was 40) — best decision ever for me and my son! And trust Richard on the Mac issue –I switched a few years ago — I will never go back to a PC. So glad to hear all your fantastic updates. I've missed your posts. Today is a good day!

  9. So please to have you back, I missed you. Congratulations on your wonderful news, it made my day even though I don't know you!

  10. Alison, welcome back! I am SO pleased you're here. And Finn's school looks amazing – I love that they meditate twice a day. It would be great if all kids learned this skill from a young age. Can't wait to hear all the details of your upcoming engagement (unless Richard has now been scared off by your dear dad)!

  11. That was one of the funnier posts you've done in a while. And very thoughtful too. Life is never one placid pond. And how dull it would be if it was. So, when's the nuptuals?

  12. And I really seriously thought you were going away! But I'm glad you didn't. I'm like you… I feel myself needing a break, but then there is still so much I want to say. I guess I'm just a chatty kathy. I blog it so my husband doesn't have to hear it ALL. And I'm the one who is always curious about these new directions you sometimes want to take brocante in but decide not to. Do tell.

  14. Wowzers woman! What-a-lot you have been up to! It's really good to see you back……….I was getting worried, and missed you!
    So glad your life laundry hasn't been too drastic, and sounds like the break away has done you the world of good.
    And BIG BIG BIG congratulations to you and Richard! (I knew it…..). Your Dad is super funny too!
    PS: A Mac is the only way – you'll wonder how you lived without it (I've never had a PC in my life)
