  • Hot Hot Hot

    Hot Hot Hot

    My optimal operating temperature’s about 18 degrees Celsius. The last few days, therefore, have been beyond grim. I came to the conclusion this afternoon that I was probably dehydrated, and no training today was a good call. So, I’m behind again. What can I say. There’s been no actual progress since we spoke last anyway. […]

  • Start

    Start

    Yesterday, in the middle of a Poetry Writing session, my brain rubber-banded back to the moment when I almost drowned during a swimming lesson as a kid. I’ve never learnt to swim as a result, and honestly don’t feel particularly safe in the water, ever. It’s something that will, in time, be dealt with, but […]

  • Adventure Time

    Adventure Time

    For the next three days, I am on an adventure. The furthest north I’ve been post Lockdown is Norfolk: this is a lot further afield. Twitter will have pictures, if you are interested in such things. This is not just time off, though: I am going to film, and to write poetry. It will be […]

  • Take Me I’m Yours

    Take Me I’m Yours

    I am going away at the weekend, but the blogging will continue. However, there needs to be time when a break is scheduled: once the habits are established, but not before. An important part of my routine has slid this week and needs correcting. I know why. It takes a long time for me to […]

  • Endless Art

    Endless Art

    The artwork is doing an important job. It is allowing me to release unexpected mental pressure. That means despite deciding I would stop drawing, tonight it’s continued to leech out of me. Tomorrow I need to tidy and organize to get back to some kind of normality, and to fit that drawing into the process. […]

  • The Climb

    The Climb

    I think I’ve sorted my ‘how can I get people to buy my shit when they don’t necessarily like poetry’ problem.

  • Ain’t No Pleasing You

    Ain’t No Pleasing You

    Third project is off again. This time, there’s a reasonable chance it will all work out…

  • In My Head

    In My Head

    Real life events have hit me hard this week. There’s been conversations about both ends of Motherhood. My exercise routine has pretty much turned on its head. There’s a new poetry course started too which is already presenting some interesting possibilities to brain and progression. It’s good when you can say you’ve done your best […]

  • Run for Home

    Run for Home

    I appear to be doing blogs in pairs right now, mostly because they’re being fitted in between other tasks. That meant recording a podcast today, which on reflection should have been done on Monday. It’ll get programmed that way for next week. Today was also when I did my first 10 km for quite some time, […]

  • You Wear It Well

    You Wear It Well

    This week has changed the game plan. A lot of that has to do with knowing I’m not happy with other people’s handling of mass participative events as someone with historic anxiety issues. Forget for a moment about all the other potential mental complications involved in next week’s Ride London, it’s all about knowing I’m […]
