In an increasingly complex world, it is reassuring to be reminded that the basics of life are still with us – in fact in most cases, quite literally at our fingertips.
For me these basics are:
- health and wellbeing
- personal style
Why do family and friends not feature in this list? Well that is because I consider them integral to these elements and forming the basis of all that is important to me. When I cook, clean, plant, run, dress or stitch, it not only enriches my life but impacts on those that are dear to me.
As you read this blog, I hope it helps bring into focus those aspects of life you value, so you can derive as much pleasure from them as I do mine – plain and simple.
and do pop over to Plain and Simple on Facebook or Instagram for further doings.

Your blog is very refreshing to me. You share the enjoyment of life. Your pictures are stunning. I love the origami post and lavender. I look forward to reading more of your posts.
Your words are very kind Janet – I’m pleased the blog is achieving what it set out to do!
I too garden as a hobby and a few years back included cooking; than baking. As for well being, well when I was a teen I was into healthy eating and nutrition. They told me I should be a Nutritiousness. But I didn’t go that route. But I still read and have always informed my family about the in’s and out’s of eating healthy. Hey I found your blog by way of Frugal Eater. His blueberry brownies to your raspberry brownies. You think Mango would be a good fruit to try? Maybe even banana. I know strawberry would; as those too have always been a pair.
I like your blog I have signed to follow. I would like to invite you to check out my blog over at savorthefood.wordpress.com . I have lots of recipes that call for blueberries savorthefood.wordpress.com/recipes/ (inside the dessert file).
