Sitting here with a sore back and a smile on my face. Yes, my back is bloody sore but, no I haven't taken any drugs to ease the pain and make me smile and dribble (I'm not actually dribbling by the way!). I've just had a really good day in spite of the pain and … Continue reading My Inner Hippie.
It's been six days since I posted. Six whole days. Twenty four hours long, all of them! What in the love of God is wrong with me. I have the intentions of a saint but the follow through of a demon. Mental motivation is on the floor this week and I'm nimbly stepping over it … Continue reading Meh, whatever …
Ok. So picture this. You're in the college canteen. On your own. You have an alloted thirty minutes for lunch or the warty hag is going to level you with a shovel (she is mobile since yesterday folks ... taking her job very seriously!). All sounds great. But it's not!! It's bloody well a disaster. … Continue reading Fate worse than Death.
I think I have a disease. Or maybe it's an illness (what's the difference??). I don't know if there is a cure for it but, I know it's progressive and sometimes downright aggressive.

There is something so nice about being in a place where everyone knows they have to be quiet. People speaking in whispers, walking silently, moving slowing. Everyone has come … Continue reading Sssshhhh….
Had an "Imaginative Storm" workshop in college today with Mr James Navé (entrepreneur, poet, performer). Simple stuff but really inspiring. I learned today that if I'm stuck with my writing I need to stop and write something else....brainstorm it, word bomb it, free flowing, write anything. Wrote a piece today, and even though it is … Continue reading I don’t remember….
Did you ever wake up in a bad mood? Like really in a bad mood. For no reason other than you just are. The day and evening before can have passed happily without incident but, when you open your eyes in the morning the world has slipped slightly off it's axis. Well that's me this … Continue reading Hard to dance with the Devil on your back
Well, today was a little better....planned a bit this morning and got what I needed done. After a lovely cuppa with a friend, I had a play to see, a lecture to go to, and a little birthday celebration after dinner for one of my little people ... so there wasn't too much space for … Continue reading Eeeeek…….
I'm not doing great at the aul blog every day now am I. But please don't think this means that I love ye any less. I think about ye constantly and when I let ye down my heart breaks a little with every passing day (too much?). I'm actually quite surprised at how much I … Continue reading It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark….
