I went away for the weekend with a couple of friends. On the way to the beach we stopped at a supermarket. Friend 1 immediately disappeared, presumeably to search for essentials. Friend 2 peers at the trolley, looks at me: ‘So what else do we need?’ Me: ‘no idea, I’m just pushing the trolley..’ 🤷♀️ […]
Sometimes knowing is good. Sometimes not knowing is better. Sometimes not knowing is terrible. Sometimes knowing is. I’m not sure what kind of time this might turn out to be. I currently only know that I don’t know. This knowing-about-not-knowing is more knowing than when I didn’t even know there was something to potentially know […]
I went and it was ok. And I think it highlighted (highlit?) just how much I should’ve booked a couple of sessions a long time ago. But anyway. Late is better than later 🙂
Rest-posten Laden (shop for all kinds of unsold ‘leftovers’ from other shops) Me, holding a slim white folder at the checkout: Any chance you have any more of these folders? Cashier, without really looking up: Only what’s on the shelves, sorry.. Me: Ok, no problem. Do you know if you’ll be getting any more in? […]
You never know, I might even write something every so often this year…
Going through my draft folder for Nanopoblano 🙂 *** Written on Nov 8th 2018. Mostly. The draft was saved on the 21st (also Nov ’18) Found and backposted on Nov 4th 2021. I was on my way home from a holiday in France and Spain, staying in the AirBnB for the second time. The owner […]
Oh! Hello November, you’re already here? Im’ afraid I’m still not ready for you.. Have a seat, I’ll make some tea and you can drink it while I finish getting ready for you. Ok?
I’m cycling along part of the Swedish coast and as usual, packing and getting ready to go was a series of small breakdowns and catastrophes, and as usual, I survived and got to the bus much later than intended but with enough time to be let on 😉 (They were running a little bit late, […]
Among the things I don’t actually know to be scientifically proven but assume to be true based on observation, risk-addiction doesn’t appear to be genetic. Some people do a lot of crazy, scary, dangerous, adventurous, amazing, story-worthy things with their lives. Some don’t. I, unfortunately, am firmly ensconced within the second group, where I am […]
I saw this as I was walking to the supermarket: So I went to investigate. As you do. I like fire, generally, if it’s contained and/or supervised. I don’t much appreciate fires living by themselves in my town. I stomped out the flames but didn’t have any way to do anything with the embers. So… […]
“Thank you” he said, wrapping the second tissue around the small stack of slightly soggy crumpets. “That’s really sweet of you.” He looked at me, “this is the sort of thing I’ll still remember in 10 years..” He paused and looked briefly at his feet before looking up again, “..I wonder what I’ll be remembered […]
To misquote Frank Turner: you know your life is heading in a questionable direction when you hurt your back and daren’t ask anyone for help.. It’s indeed a long road up to recovery. And to a tidy house.
Hell hath no desire to buy power tools like a woman determined not to be dependent on people who don’t deserve it… I just bought a drill. It’s not the exact model I really (really) wanted but it was available and much cheaper and close to where I live. It will do the job. I […]
Dear well-loved and sorely neglected Blog, I haven’t forgotten you, even if it feels like it. I missed you. I will be back next year. Jesse xx
