Mathematically challenged

To divide is the opposite of to multiply. Yep, got that. But divide is so much more than that... Divide is that black mark on my childhood bedroom wall where my math text book was slammed from across the room at my desk. Frustrated much? Yeah. Statistics not my strength. Divide is watching my children be… Continue reading Mathematically challenged


Why I can’t blog when all I want to do is blog

Do you ever want to do something so much, that it's almost impossible to start? That new book on your bedside table that you can't start reading until you're in JUST the right headspace... The tidy up of your top drawer because you don't feel strong enough to make the big 'keep/sell or giveaway/bin' decisions… Continue reading Why I can’t blog when all I want to do is blog


What else is new here?

I've tackled some blog planning. Just a couple of months to see if planning works for me in this forum. I had a look at what I actually want to achieve with Abbie's Babble which will come as no surprise to those who read my recent posts on where my blog is at and the… Continue reading What else is new here?


Dear dream reader

Dear dream reader Thank you for visiting my blog. I wonder how you found my space? While you are here, I want you to know that you're really just like me. Except that you're not.

Where abbiesbabble is at

Today Wordpress told me I have now published 100 posts. I have 154 people following me. That's not bad in four months - little numbers for most of you I know but for me, I'm happy. I didn't do this to get followers but I have to admit, I love it when I know someone new has read… Continue reading Where abbiesbabble is at

Daily Prompt: The Mirror Crack’d You wake up one morning to a world without mirrors. How does your life — from your everyday routines to your perception of yourself — change? How would my routines and perception of myself change without mirrors? Routines - well they probably wouldn't change really. I blow dry my hair… Continue reading MIRROR MIRROR

Daily Prompt: What’s the best (or rather, worst) backhanded compliment you’ve ever received? If you can’t think of any — when’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you didn’t actually deserve? The first things that came to mind on reading this prompt were a couple of compliments paid to me over the years which… Continue reading OH THOSE ELDERLY PEOPLE!

Again she felt the tears spill, running down her cheeks matching the raindrop rivulets on the windows. She shook herself angrily, willing the tears to stop. There was no reason to be so sad, there was so much to be grateful for. That was easy to think, but everything going on in her life just seemed… Continue reading TO BE FOUND

Daily writing prompt: Adult Visions I grew up knowing some things about my future. I was told/heard them often enough. "Oh Abbie, she's a good girl. She's so bright. She'll go to university." I mean I was your typical oldest child - reliable and conscientious. God blessed me with a good brain and I liked… Continue reading HOLDING TO MY CHILDLIKE PERSPECTIVE

Best Babble, Musings


A big part of the reason I started this blog was to find my voice. My authentic voice. To work out, in the midst of this life, which has gone through some pretty monumental shift in the last few years, who I really am. You may ask 'how could a blog help?' which is a fair… Continue reading I BLOG BECAUSE…

Daily prompt: Back of the Queue For as long as I can remember I have wanted to write. But I've been afraid. A part of me hopes I have some ability, part of me doesn't care, I just love to put words on a page. These last few months blogging are the start of what has been… Continue reading WRITE AWAY
