Dipping a second toe

As previously moaned about (here) I thought long and hard before posting a brief bit of writing I had done many moons ago. But, in for a penny, in for a pound so here is a little more. War, horsewoman of the Apocalypse War leaned across the table and through gritted teeth growled “I don’t…

The skills we learn when we’re bored

I recently had a very good cup of coffee made for me, by someone who shares a similar sense of humour to mine. It was placed in front of me, accompanied by their own drink, with the intriguing teaser “As we are listening to BBC 6 Music I thought I theme the froth” The White…

Random thoughts

I don’t know if I am having more or fewer random thoughts right now, it is hard to tell with everything else that is going on, but here are three of the most recent: It is going to feel REALLY WERID to walk into a supermarket without having to queue first. I really hope I…

Admitting defeat

I have failed. Below is my entire windowsill cress harvest. Just to put your minds at rest – the remaining massively out of date seeds will be composted and so take their parts in that circle of life malarkey. Someone, whose mouse and keyboard privileges may be revoked soon, has already ordered some more…FREE SALAD!…

Friday! (is it Friday?)

Today’s one and only task is to figure out how we uphold the grand tradition of POETS day* when furloughed or working from home. I might go with ‘slob out in jogging bottoms as soon as the clock hits 1pm’, but I’m not sure I’d notice much difference. (*Piss Off Early, Tomorrow’s Saturday)

Lists and how to kick their arses

So it turns out that broadcasting to the whole world, via the internet, what I intend to achieve has a motivating effect on me. In previous years it would have been my overwhelming need for approval that made me finish yesterdays list but I’m sooooooooo over that and now I’m pretty sure I managed to…

Plans, plans…all the plans

Yesterday was not a good day. With total brain fog I couldn’t even see what needed doing or changing, let alone how to do or change them, so today I have decided to find the biggest (metaphorical) frog and eat that first. My To Do list for today goes as follows: Write a blog post…

The things we do when bored

One of the things that has gone a little by the wayside for me since all this kicked off is exercise. I see articles telling me not to worry about it, that self care and mental well being is more important than watching every calorie or counting every step, but they don’t seem to realise…

Making new friends

Although I have had mucho encouragement (Thank You!) and the promise of cake if I manage to blog something every day I have decided that I cannot commit to that. I can commit to trying to do that more often though so today’s post is one of my (in)famous ‘Stuff in my home’ ones. Today…

Creature comforts part 3

I don’t usually watch a lot of telly but I can be persuaded to go to the cinema for the odd blockbuster. I adore huge films with massive explosions as well as adorable indie films which few people have heard of, but in recent years the bits they don’t talk about in the blockbusters –…
