Wrapping up in the good stuff….


This is where I am on my next adventure and it is as good as it looks. Pembrokeshire in Wales is an unspoilt beautiful part of the world, with friendly people and a simplicity that ‘speaks’ to me.

For those of you on Facebook you will already be familiar with the proliferation of ‘sayings’ that roll through and in the main I ignore them. Now and then though there is one that reasonates. Last night a good friend posted this ‘Most of the battles we face are unseen by others. Be kind. Always.’ Amen to that.

I have had a few challenges to deal with lately (as we all do) and I have tried to be as kind as possible to all concerned as I deal with them.

I also know deep within that if I continue to wrap myself up with the blessings that come forth every day, I weave trust and carry on sailing forwards.

Much gratitude…….

for the few days spent with Emily at Uni, with much ‘girlie’ nattering, cooking together, hugs, tea drinking tucked up in bed, film watching, giggling and doing each other’s hair. Mine still looks great thanks Em. ❤

my new friend here on my current assignment; who has taken me out to dinner, to a country show to see her friend flying his hawks, driven me everywhere to show me where things are, cooked delicious food and left the fridge and cupboards stuffed with goodies, watched the Eurovision Song Contest with me (we needed wine for that one) and gifted me her furry crew and lovely home for ten days. Thanks Alison. X


to the flowing love from Dolly the Jack Russell who is never far from my side (and I am sure this is not totally down to my ability to dish-up her food), to Tom the burnt orange tabby cat who comes and rests his face against mine as I work on my laptop at the kitchen table and Perdie the sweet grey and white little cat who is just starting to come and curl up on my lap. Last night I sat and Tom was by my feet, Dolly by my side and Perdie tucked up on my lap. X


to the young cows who come and say ‘Hello’ at the garden fence and I can see them gamboling about in the field while I sit here writing this. I had no idea that young cows played, but they do and it’s a delight to watch.


and last, but not least, to the dirt track from here that leads to a sheltered cove and at low tide I can walk right round to the main beach….

    Lovely reflection as always, Jane! And Tom looks almost exactly like my Gabey. What a lovely part of the world, which I had the pleasure of traveling through many years ago. ( I live in Pembroke, New York, by the way) Love and hugs, Diane XO ♥

      Synchronicity at play…and much love flowing to you and your Mum. I could happily settle in this part of the world, but don’t feel it is where I am destined to be. A little more floating to do yet. I will Google Pembroke, New York and have a look. Hugs, X ❤ x

    Reading your posts, Jane, is somewhat akin to meditation. They are so positive and inspiring. You must know that you touch our souls with the descriptions of your repose.. The animals surely understand your nature and that’s why they warm up to you so quickly.


    • 6 Jane Thorne May 14, 2014 at 12:02 pm

      Oh Al, I love being around them too. I was only thinking about you this morning and sent those thoughts across on Fb. Seeing the good helps me to stay calm, so whatever crosses my path (and goodness there have been some belting challenges lately) I can serenely sail through…with humour. I’ll send you a pic of Dolly relaxing in the sun this morning…it’s a classic and I know you will smile. She’s snoring by my side right now and last night I went to sleep with Tom on me and woke up to Perdie on me…nature’s alarm clock. Biggest hugs for you my Bro. Xxx

    I’ve a hard time figuring out whether you’re on assignment or on ‘workation’. Perhaps it’s you, Jane buddy – always seeing the blooms in the brush – whereas most whine only of the thorns.

    Peace and blessings,
    P/s The cat looks so contented

      Ahh, my lovely buddy you are so kind and poetic. I love that Mechanic Leigh is out and I can’t wait to read about his latest adventures. You are such a talented and prolific writer and it’s a joy to be in touch with you. God bless this Global Village of ours. Much love and hugs for you, Xxx Oh and I woke up this morning with the contented cat sitting solidly on me….nature’s alarm clock!

    Ah the ideal lifestyle!


    • 10 Jane Thorne May 14, 2014 at 6:33 am

      Your comment made me smile Ian…the rain clouds have been chased away this morning and we have blue skies here. It’s so warm that I have been able to turn the early morning heating off and leave the french doors open from the kitchen. Yup, I am conversing with the cows again, they are that close by. It reminds me of my childhood. Have a lovely day in Oz Ian. 🙂 x

    The beauty of Pembrokeshire in Wales in an unspoilt beautiful part of the world also speaks to me, Jane, thanks to your post. And the beauty of your search, your gratitude, your hopefulness and your adventure speaks to me as well. Blessings, Jane, and many more lovely adventures filled with loving people and loyal animals!


    • 12 Jane Thorne May 13, 2014 at 7:03 pm

      Hello lovely Marylin and it’s so good to hear from you. These new adventures bring forth so much love for all of us involved. It’s a gift to be able to share it all with you and to hear from you. Xx

    I believe half of heaven is in our ability to see it. I love your eyes, Jane. ~ Love ever, Bobbie

    I look forward to your adventures Jane and I was so excited when I saw your post in my inbox that I jumped, and deleted it instead of clicking to read!!! How silly am I?!

    Your new place looks just perfect and you write about everything so well I am there with you. I love nothing better than having my animals encroaching on my space so I have to work round them, particularly little Phoebe who has been ill, sticking her tail in my face!

    I hope you get all the peace you need to help and heal. Love you to bits. ❤ Xx


    • 16 Jane Thorne May 13, 2014 at 7:00 pm

      Hello my lovely friend Chris and thank you for all your love and support. Healing strokes for little Phoebe and so much love flowing to you and your loved ones. ❤ Xxxxx

    I always love how you look for the good in things, and also that you seem to be having the very best of adventures. The countryside you are in is the kind I love, and its great that you appreciate it so much


    • 18 Jane Thorne May 13, 2014 at 2:59 pm

      Thank you Ducky. Xx The challenges will pass and it is so very beautiful here. I walked all the way down the cliff today and sat on the rockpools by the sea edge. Only the incoming tide brought me back up. It is soul soothing. Right place, right moment and all the good stuff. Much love to you. Xx


      • 19 Peter Wells aka Countingducks May 13, 2014 at 3:01 pm

        I really love those moments. All is life is there. I’ll shut up now, but |’m so pleased you had that moment of peace and reflection


        • 20 Jane Thorne May 13, 2014 at 3:03 pm

          I knew you’d understand…it is so peaceful here you could just reach out and touch it. I am not pushing for answers or solutions, I trust that they will flow forth…I just need to keep open and looking Ducky. And writing!

    I love hearing about your journey, and the immense faith and trust that you have. You inspire me Jane.
    Much love and many hugs,
    Jeannie xxxxxx


    • 22 Jane Thorne May 13, 2014 at 2:29 pm

      I was just thinking about you Jeannie and sending Mother’s Day love for last Sunday and biggest hugs to you. My next assignment is very different, as you will see when I tell you all about it. I am learning such a lot and it feels like a massive shift is going on. Let me know how you are when you have a moment, I sending loving thoughts to you often my lovely friend. Love you, ❤ Xxxx


  10. 23 Marie May 13, 2014 at 11:41 am

    I absolutely love hearing about your travels, your gorgeous new friends, especially the furry ones! Jane, what a fabulous life you are having, I am a little bit envious on so many levels. The freedom, the coziness and beautiful sights you get to see. Much love. Marie xx


    • 24 Jane Thorne May 13, 2014 at 11:44 am

      Hello Marie, how lovely to hear from you. These adventures are gifts and special, you are right and there is a shift coming through them…much love flowing to you. Xxxx ❤
