It’s the TV! That’s the easiest way for my husband to send my eyes whirling around like some mad thing out of a B-grade cartoon. The irritation just floods me! Imagine it now. SweetP (my beloved) and your’s truly settling in to our comfy chairs side by side in the Family Room at Casa Pink Apple. Our plan? A spot […]

I guess that depends on how you define peace and what values each of you cherish. At Casa PinkApple If peace means quiet and unrippled (making up my own words here!) then you’d never suggest Casa Pink Apple was peaceful!

Valentine’s Day can have some unusual effects on a long-term relationship. For those whose primary Love Language is Receiving Gifts it is a Red Letter day, or at least a Red Rose Day!

One of the things that I find really irritating in personal development is that much-bandied concept that you can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself.  Anyone else struggle to own that, or truly believe it?
