I started writing this while sat in the hairdressers chair this morning. The grey army is well and truly entrenched on my head ... I've fought the brave fight, but these damned grey walkers just keep multiplying and coming back to persecute me. So, at least once a month now, I find myself there, looking … Continue reading Slow Down …
There are days when my heart is heavier than others. Days when melancholia lingers around my head, like a mist, brushing its soft hands against my skin. A feeling I try to shake off but, some days it just settles right back down on my shoulders like dust falling back to Earth, after being temporarily … Continue reading Therapy
I wrote a piece for college this evening which took me outside my comfort zone. Had to do a 1000 word review profiling a Reviewer. WTF!!! I read reviews of books and films all the time but I don't pay a blind bit of notice to who writes them (how wrong is that for someone … Continue reading Learn
Sitting chillaxing and watching Mark Wahlberg do his stuff on tv. Life's simple pleasures should never be underestimated! 😃 Didn't write today but a girls gotta have a day off.

I'm procrastinating big time today....if there was a prize for putting things off I'd be up on the winners podium with the gold medal hanging off me neck! I have done a myriad of uber-important things today...things that could not be put off until later. I cleaned the kitchen and hoovered the house (I did … Continue reading Procrastination
Typing this one on the aul IPod so apologies in advance if it goes all wonky on me! In my leaba looking forward to tomorrow. Once upon a time (in a land far, far away) I used to hate Mondays. In fact I hated Sunday too purely because Monday came after it. I'd get that … Continue reading Monday
Some days my entire self is made up of worry and guilt - 50/50 split. Now, this is not the norm. There is of course always a smathering of worry and guilt in everyday, but just your normal run of the mill kind. Yet some days they are all there is.
