I got back from Amsterdam last night; I got my to my flat at around 20:30, threw my bag on the floor, my keys on the side table and lay myself down on the sofa. I woke up around 2am, downed two pint glasses of water and finally crawled into bed. It was my good…… Continue reading Lost in Amsterdam: The Hen-party
I’m presently locked into a violent and somewhat personal battle with the words which exist in my head. I’ve found most of the relevant ones already, now I’m struggling to rearrange them into an order which pleases me. This battle’s been going on for quite some time, and my associated war wounds are real and…… Continue reading #WritingCommunity
So I am writing this post directly after publishing the last one. It Sunday, Ru and I are having a day in and I wanted to get some writing done today as I’m working Mon-Friday next week, and won’t be around on Saturday at all. I am just getting back into the WordPress mindset, and…… Continue reading Daring to dream; a confession.
I have been absent from word-press for some time now, and I wish I could say it’s because I’ve simply been too busy. That’s the generally acceptable excuse, isn’t it? To say things along the lines of ‘real life has been too fast paced,’ or ‘my real life has become too busy to allow me…… Continue reading Another return to WordPress- and a vow to finally finish my book.
I haven’t been on WordPress for a while- life has sped up and filled in to such a point that I haven’t even thought about trying to put a blog post together for months. In two weeks time my work contract comes to an end, and so I’ve been filling in application forms and trying…… Continue reading Distractions from WordPress, and writing for pleasure
Christmas is over. Ru and I are back at the flat attempting to transition back from partying/relaxing mode to writing/editing mode; and it’s been bloody difficult. Christmas’s are always full on with my family, and whilst it was lovely and festive and all that, it’s also proving to be really different to ‘come back’ from.…… Continue reading After Christmas, before New Year; thoughts on finishing my book in 2018
So I have been absent from WordPress for quite some time now. I started a new job, and seeing as it is the first time I’ve been actively employed for the most part of the day, Monday to Friday, for just over thirteen years, it has taken some getting used to. I’m working as a…… Continue reading Back to WordPress, after a long twitter related absence
So today I got a phone call from a lady from a Mental Health Charity MQ, and after a half hour or so conversation she asked me if I’d like to blog for their site, and perhaps do some ambassadorial for them as well! I’m pretty excited, as I’ve been trying to find a mental…… Continue reading First Steps in the right direction.. blogging for a mental health charity!
The world outside my eyes knocks against my mind, tap tap tap, asking for an invitation in. I try to stop seeing movies all around me but the street outside is cloaked with a pale green filter and all the people wear clothes like costumes, faces like masks covering up what’s underneath, what’s inside- deeper…… Continue reading Schizophrenic
So, I am writing from work, an admission which is less an indication of my own laziness and more to do with the fact that my manager isn’t in the office and there is absolutely nothing I can do right now. There are only so many times you can ask your co–workers if there’s anything…… Continue reading Monday at work; taking a WP break..
