(Be warned…) Let’s get ready to RAMBLE!

As the title suggest this may well not be my most coherent post, apologies in advance. 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…

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…

Seven of Seven

My challenge is over (unless something Earth-shattering happens to stop me pressing ‘Publish’ on this). Seven posts for seven days and all I can say is Kudos to the people that do this all the time! Were any lessons learnt? Yes, don’t accept any more challenges from the toilet roll people who live in your…

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 –…

Creature comforts part 2

Music has always been vitally important to me, but sometime I forget that. Having a brain that works that way may seem like a disadvantage to some people – you forget there is something in the world you really enjoy?! – but I find it strangely delightful. I can be having a down day, a…
