I am a fairy. Who knew Peter Pan? 

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, 

I have hundreds of books. Literally. One entire room of floor to ceiling book cases, running three levels deep. 

Digitally my collection of books run into thousands. My Kindle after five years of loving care – died. Bloody rude. A need for perfume, purple glitter and to be truthful, more books,  have stopped me from purchasing a new Kindle as I can’t afford it. This is very sad. Benefactor welcome

Liam James suggested I be lovely and donate some of my books to the library. Excellent, but beige. It is so “have been done before“.  I needed to find another way to share my treasure and bless the world.

I found #ibelieveinbookfairies quite by accident on Instagram and then, read up on Facebook. It is an international initiative where books are gifted, left in random locations, longing to be found.

I love a good longing. Giving gifts, the element of surprise and spreading unexpected joy. I’m a sentimental sod. 

I sprinkled fairy dust as I left a book at Montecasino on my way to the theatre. Magical. Yay!

A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation… A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.

-Henry Miller

I would love to know who found the book! 

I wish you enough

From GLITTER to toast.

30 great things I’m grateful for – in absolutely no particular order of preference, except the first two.

Janice

1. My children – for the funny, the quirky, the challenging, the enduring, the different, the surprising, the everything … especially the love!!

2. My man – for his patience and his steadfast permanence, mostly when he has no clue what I’m doing (which is most of the time)!

3. Glitter (obviously!) – all colours, all the time!

4. Toast (ya – I guess that was obvious too!) – preferably rye toast, especially on cold winter mornings, with melted butter … mmmmmmmm!!!

5. My book Tribe

6. My doglets, Phoebe and Chandler

7. Tea & Coffee – such a confusing conundrum being a lover of both!

8. Notebooks – ring-bound ones

9. Actually, most stationery! I love stationery!

10. Living in a country where we have the freedom to practice what we
believe in, and to support others who might feel that this isn’t the
case.

11. Being privileged to watch incredibly talented SA performers on-stage on a
regular basis. I don’t think people realise what amazing home-grown
talent we have in our country – they’re so busy criticising anything
local.

12. Things we don’t even think about – the roof over our head, running water, electricity, clothes, shoes – that others only dream of.

13. Pain-free days. For anyone who suffers from any type of ‘invisible’ condition, where your pain is practically unbearable, so you just pop those pills and suffer in silence, you’ll know what I mean!!

14. My mom still being able to travel over from the UK to spend time with us.

15. The fact that we can all help anyone, change anyone’s life for the better, in an instant, at anytime (to paraphrase Anne Frank).

16. Google Maps (especially when I’m in Cape Town – sorry, telling me to ‘just look for the mountain’ doesn’t actually work for me!!!!)

17. Music that inspires me

18. Getting a good night’s sleep (rare, oh, so rare!!)

19. The incredible inspiration I get, and all the amazing, insightful things I learn from the diverse group of people I get to call my friends, both online and in real-time.

20. Emily – without her, our home and our lives wouldn’t actually operate … at all!!!

21. Soup – in all and any weather.

22. John Frieda Frizz-Ease Shampoo & Conditioner

23. Sweet peas in summertime – my favourite flowers

24. Work that fulfills and rewards.

25. Books, books, books, and more books!

… for the love of books.

26. My Kindle

27. My Cellphone

28. Garlic Bread

29. Lindor Balls

30. Lip Balm
