    Alone Again, Or

    Yesterday was a watershed. It began because I am no longer in the position to afford things that other people consider as essentials. The fact remains, FOMO is real, but largely pointless once you rationalise the expense. Sure there are alternatives too, but the larger truth is that when you know something is a distraction, […]

  • Where I Stood

    Where I Stood

    Why didn’t you write a blog yesterday? This is a very good question. One part of the answer is me, sitting here now, waiting for a phone call. NOBODY EVER calls me so when it happens, you know it’s important, and that really is all I want to say about it, for reasons which will […]

  • Tower of Strength

    Tower of Strength

    A bunch of ridiculously rich people worried about being ‘cancelled’ (with no grasp at all what this really means) co-signed a statement yesterday. The two most notable (at least for me) had already come together in conflict earlier in the day on something far more telling. This is where we are now. There are no […]

  • The End of the Innocence

    The End of the Innocence

    I don't. I am a digital outcast, roaming the villages still free of corporate oppression on my tricycle, singing songs of the glorious digitally free past. I fix tech for food, I am singuarly unaffected by animal instincts and have my white hair interlaced with charging cables. https://t.co/HFGyzDxBrr — ๐Ÿ—ฟ Sarah's Poems ๐Ÿ“ 100% Passion […]

  • Lies


    With the virtual world awash with fake news and unconfirmed rumour, navigating the Internet’s never been more fraught. How can we tell what’s real and what isn’t? In most cases, I use more than one ‘impartial’ news sources for a confirmation on big stories: Reuters, the Associated Press and the BBC News sites may not […]

  • Sadeness


    I have registered there’s twelve years until Armageddon. I wonder how long it takes everybody else. Probably need a cuppa before continuing as a result. The plan was to do an early Gym but today, like it or not, life has said no. Instead of getting all grumpy, the day’s just been rearranged a bit. […]

  • The Long Road Home

    The Long Road Home

    It'll be at least a week before I'm able to drive again and a month before I'm able to lift anything. Meeting my PT tomorrow to organise a Rehab Plan. — ๐ŸŒŠ Sarah, Shonky Self-Creation ๐ŸŒŠ (@AlternativeChat) April 3, 2018 It could be far worse. That’s the take-out from yesterday’s physio meeting: there’s still a […]

  • Lucky Number

    Lucky Number

    Today, my Blog is seven years old. I got up early, went to the Gym, and will ride 55km on my bike later. That’s the diary bit of this project done, now to the point. Once upon a time, that was pretty much all I blogged about. Now, I have a life that is often […]

  • I’ll be There for You

    I’ll be There for You

    Yesterday, my Husband sent me a text message, cheerfully informing me that he’d registered a WordPress domain. I will admit, there was a measure of surprise over this. I’ve been suggesting that, for about three years now, he might like to write about his passion for cycling: he creates a very good blog on company […]

  • Shut Up

    Shut Up

    I had my first decent night’s sleep since… well, sometime last week. As used to be the case when this happened during the sleepless nights of two early childhoods, I’ve woken up a bit confrontational. All that stuff that pissed me off whilst I was tired but I didn’t possess the energy to deal with […]
