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?
Has anyone else noticed the similarities between the prophets, John the baptist and Jesus with the three Billy Goats Gruff? “Me? Nah, I’m not tasty/big/important/mighty enough – you want the next guy, he’s much tastier/bigger/more important/mightier than me!” (the small part where Jesus dies can be overlooked as part of the biggest-billy-goat-kicks-troll’s-butt scuffle – coming […]
It seems that it’s impossible to add purely Good Things to a life. Great news? Bam! Bad news. Good mood? Bam! Some reason to hide. Have lots to do inside at the weekend? Bam! Have a couple of fabulously warm sunny days so you either feel guilty about missing them by being inside or about […]
I need to go shopping. The tears fall heavily, the breaths juddering and irregular, my thoughts spiralling and my face getting steadily more puffy. The tears have nothing to do with my need to go shopping. They’re just there. And their presence is a hindrance. I want go back to bed. To hide. To cry […]
It’s bad enough that it’s taken me a week to post this picture of thick, gloopy, Spanish hot chocolate. It’s worse that it took me almost a year to make it. It feels like it’s time to start doing/eating/drinking the good things and stop waiting for “someday” or the right day or any other kind […]

“Hey! You’re wearing nice socks, can I try them on?”
They say you can’t cure stupid.
You can’t really cure muscle ache either
The van is huuuuuge!! And has the turning circle of a block of flats.
In the rush to get out of the house I left my coffee behind..
It seems I’m my own best saboteur….but at least we have a good packed lunch!
Look what I found when I got to work this morning! A very posh looking bag, containing.. .. even posher looking chocolates! It’s the thanks for the prizes I made and donated to a competition in the summer. There’s all kinds if things in there I’d never buy for myself – I’m looking forward to […]
My sister is always adopting animals. This time she must have decided it was my turn. She left a small animal with my parents for me to collect and look after. Unfortunately I don’t know quite what it is. I thought it was a baby puffin, my parents said it looked more like a penguin […]
Today is my birthday. I wanted to write a list of things I was going to do over the coming year as a kind of birthday post. I am very naive. I sat down last night and within a very short time I had a list of well over 31 things which all have to […]
