  • Making Plans for Nigel

    Making Plans for Nigel

    There is a LOT on at the moment and juggling all that I have to do with the time available in which to do so… the stress is manifesting as it always does non my body. There are boils, and skin rashes, and generally this is pushing out bad energy through my skin. Each time […]

  • Making your Mind Up

    Making your Mind Up

    I wrote a NaNoWriMo Novel in November, after nine years of false starts. Yesterday, I had a Zoom call with a friend who’s read it, and she’s urged me to enter it for a first novel contest whose deadline is this week. To be honest, there would not previously have been the confidence to do […]

  • Getting Better

    Getting Better

    Remember I said this place used to be the daily practice and now it isn’t? Well here I am, three days after my last post. I had a poetry ‘gig’ yesterday that went very well indeed, which will turn into a regular occurrence. A virtual ‘open mic’ is exactly what reality demands at present, and […]

  • Reasons to be Cheerful, Part Three.

    Reasons to be Cheerful, Part Three. I’m out tomorrow. Normally I’d be trying to find excuses not to go but this time… well, I’m not gonna spoil the surprise, because there could be a bazillion decent pictures in this and my phone camera’s been screaming for a proper outing plus a robust workout. So, instead of stressing over meal or […]

  • Relax


    Ah, yes. Never underestimate the benefits of a good night’s kip, people. I feel like a completely new person. I’m going to cycle early today, so that means directly after writing this the shorts will go on. I may even go do the Gym later, WHO KNOWS. Giant cotton reels, blooming bushes and ALL THE […]

  • The World is Not Enough

    The World is Not Enough

    Between you and me, I am not a great fan of competition. However, it is undoubtedly true that having goals and objectives makes the process of putting in the miles (whether literal or metaphorical) easier to achieve. It is the reason why a daily list of Things to Do is now written without a thought […]

  • Sharp Dressed Man

    Sharp Dressed Man

    I promise there will not be too much going on about The New Project this week, but as it all kicks off tomorrow, this seems like the correct moment to explain just how fucking important Arguto is. This is the means by which anything is possible and acceptable as a writer. Sure, there could be an […]

  • The Chain

    Favourite picture today is the juxtaposition of stability and growth. — 🌊 Sarah Creates : Shonky Gubbins 🌊 (@AlternativeChat) April 20, 2018 Suddenly, photography has become very important. It really helps that the weather is glorious: body’s being forced into daily exercise as part of the rehab process on my left arm, which means […]

  • Not a Job

    Not a Job

      My daughter, it transpires, is not a fan of Feminism, and instead thinks we should have Everyone-ism as a concept. Everybody’s equal, regardless of sex, race and ability, and you take care of those who can’t whilst encouraging those who are capable to do more. Women shouldn’t need a day to highlight their existence. […]

  • Ready To Go

    Ready To Go

    And so 2017 begins. I’m too old to be phased by this shit any more, and I sure as fuck know that making any sweeping promises on Day One is just asking for trouble when the month goes to double figures. Therefore, let us begin with the small and attainable goals, right here on the […]
