In French, you don’t really say “I miss you.” You say “tu me manques,” which is closer to “you are missing from me.”

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,  I know I've been writing about Tim more than usual. I will not for your sake curb my emotions, therefore I will not apologise for my truth. That is not #Wenchytude  When my Tim died I knew I would miss many things about him. Besides his windswept and interesting... Continue Reading →


Love your curves and all your edges. 

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, To be vulnerable is to be alive. I would not live my life any other way. Nor would I write anything but what is my truth. So here are my perfect imperfections. We easily share our smiles, what amuses us and definitely our successes, so why should we shy away...

Anything but ordinary please! 

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, I'm addicted to social media. I could tell you that it is evil, but I've met most of you here... evil buggers you are, ain't ya? I love #ourtribe.

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,  Sitting on a blanket in a field of sunflowers, typing on a retro style typewriter while eating sour dough bread with salted butter, brie cheese and fig preserve.  An ever so delicate breeze would pick up a strand of my hair.

Girl Power!

My dearest friends and other interesting creatures,

I wrote this in 2015 and it remains as valid today as it was then.

Happy #womansday ♡

I wish you enough

The Nocturnal Wenchy


Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

Just because the girl next to you is beautiful / gifted / smart / skilled / inspirational … does NOT mean that you are not. To recognise a talent, attribute or skill in another female, is not competition – it’s truth!… and it’s okay!

I encourage you to give another woman a sincere compliment today. You will not become less because you gave more. A kind word. A humble deed. You will continue to shine just like before. It will take nothing from you.

Woman who are comfortable in their own skin, support and encourage each other. There is no need to break anyone down.

There truly is enough sunshine for us all. Happy Woman’s Day!
