So, anybody who has been watching relatively closely over the last month or so will have noticed that I have gone off the grid, so to speak. I had a manically productive phase which lasted about two weeks, and then, about three weeks ago, petered out to nothing. Since then I have been a stranger…… Continue reading A two week long absence explained.
I am overweight. There is no way to dispute this fact, the mighty and omniscient BMI index makes it indisputable and quantifiable. It bothers me on some days more than others, but still- I’ve been on a halfhearted diet for about the last five years now.. rolls eyes..

So I travelled up to Lewisham last night to spend the night with my little sister. She’s been crazy busy with work and, more excitingly, wedding planning (eeeek!)- so it was so great to catch up with her and hear how everything’s going. The main and most exciting headline: she has finally picked her dress.…… Continue reading Catching up with my baby (soon to be married) sister, and contemplating adulthood, lingering symptoms, and Itchycoo Park!
I’ve been meaning to write this post for a couple of months- ever since I started a new volunteering position.
