Knowing when to let them go

It’s time. The vast array of Kitchen Friends have to be sent off to pastures new. I really feel like I should point out that I had quite a large stash of these BEFORE the lockdown started – I do not use twice as much loo roll as the rest of the world…it just looks…

Mornin’ All

How to begin? I have been feeling… The world is now full of…. It has all been a bit much recently. I am also REALLY tired of hearing about and thinking about how it has all been a bit much recently. So I have avoided writing anything more than a short shopping list or desperately…

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 Just to put your minds at rest – the remaining massively out of date seeds will be composted and so take their parts in that circle of life malarkey.

In fact, if properly strung together sentences with double checked spelling and grammar are your thing you might want to back away now. I may have mentioned before that I have suffered significant periods of insomnia for most of…

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…
