Living Room Gig

Welcome to my “Living Room Gig” ūüôā

I have been practising singing my original songs before I head up to the recording studio in January to record my very first EP and I am soooooooooooo excited.

Just thought I would share with you some video footage from this, which I am calling my very own¬†“Living Room Gig”, so welcome, I hope you enjoy. ¬†I have still got a long way to go before it’s perfect but as they say practice makes perfect and I am certainly doing that.

London Marathon 2013

London Marathon 2010
Clarabelle & Gina London Marathon 2010

It was the London Marathon on Sunday, 21 April 2013, and I just want to say a massive congratulations to everyone who took part in the run and also to the most amazing support from the thousands of people who stand for hours along the side of the road to cheer on the runners. ¬†I have run a couple of marathons before so I really do know what it is like to feel the wonderful support and encouragement from the crowd, it really does motivate you as a runner and really puts a smile on your face. ¬† I did the London marathon in 2010 with my good friend Gina and we raised a good amount of money for a charity which is very close to Gina’s heart, Alzheimer Scotland.¬† I don’t often share a lot of videos on this blog but I thought it might be nice to share the video I personally made in 2010 of our London Marathon experience, it is quite good fun to watch, you will see from the video how excited I am – so please be prepared. ¬†I feel there is at least one more marathon in me and as I write this I am seriously contemplating doing another one this year – which one, I don’t know you, but I will let you know when I have decided.

So please enjoy the wee video, I hope it makes you smile and maybe even inspires you to take on the challenge of running a marathon.

Much love to you today, as always, Clarabelle.

Postcards from the Heart

It’s not very often that I receive a postcard these days, when I was younger it was much more common and usually every time a friend or family member would go on holiday you were usually guaranteed a postcard, which normally always arrived when they were back. However, lately, I have received two postcards from a very good friend of mine, the first one is from when she visited Berlin, Germany and the second one is from when she¬†visited Cambridge in London,UK. ¬†It really did make my day when I received the postcards and I have decided to pay that forward when I go on holiday – it will be postcards all round. ¬†This next poem is inspired by just that, I hope you like it. ¬†Wishing you an adventurous day filled with travels to wonderful worldly locations. ¬†Lots of love Clarabelle

postcards from the heart

Postcards from the Heart

Postcards from the heart, travel very far,

Passing from country to country, raising every bar.

Caught up in the wind, making its way to you,

Filled with beautiful energy, inspiring what you do.

And when the postman knocks, to put it in your hand,

It brings with it adventure, from across this wonderful land.

It tells of happy times, memories with a smile,

And now lives in this present moment, bringing love from every travelled mile.
