  • Goodbye


    Looked at every single person I follow today and, if I'm honest, the vast majority I'd miss. When that changes, I'll look again. For now, however, it's enough. Thank you for being here. — 🗿 Sarah Reeson 🎆 Writer/Content Creator 🗿 (@MoveablePress) August 6, 2019 I cleared house yesterday, not yet totally done. They’ll be […]

  • Change


    It may not look like it, but today is very much significantly more different than it was yesterday. OH YES REALLY LOOK things are being done differently as here I sit, with a full-on thunderstorm raging above me. It’s quite relaxing, as it goes, but knocks on the head a walk that was planned to the Gym. […]

  • The End

    The End

    Today is the end of a significant portion of my exercise ‘life’ as my long-standing PT leaves the sector completely for pastures new. It’s been interesting watching how other people have reacted to this departure: some have angrily blamed her for ruining their lives by leaving, others have demonstrated quite frightening levels of passive-aggressive resistance. […]

  • New Life

    New Life

    I’m sitting here having breakfast, after seeing Mr Alt off on the inaugural Velo Birmingham. This is just another race to my husband, but for me it has become a powerful metaphor, and only this morning have I fully grasped the significance. When Dave was diagnosed with Type Two Diabetes, it was a wake up […]

  • This Woman’s Work

    This Woman’s Work

    Last weekend, I watched the last episode of the current season of Dr Who. I didn’t mean to, it just happened, and even though the whole season’s only been absorbed via synopsis, I stayed to the end and was rather glad that happened. The last 45 seconds was so far out of left field as […]

  • You’re Not Alone

    You’re Not Alone

    This is the worst things have been since surgery. It isn’t the pain, or the stuff going on with my body (of which there is a lot, it must be said) but my simple inability to cope with the way life has irreversibly changed. It doesn’t help that my inner ears are still not 100% […]

  • The End

    The End

    I’d like to announce to the room that as of today, I’ve formally resigned as @MMOGames’ Warcraft Blogger. I’d like to thank all of the staff that I came into contact with during my time at the Magazine, which is coming up for two years. During that period I think I matured considerably as a […]

  • Panic


    For the second time in the space of seven calender days, I’ve had a panic attack. In fairness, I could see this one coming from a while away, once it became clear public transport was going to stymie my efforts to be in the right place at the right time. The biggest problem right now […]

  • Big Time

    Big Time

    Welcome to the first day of a new world. I’ve been promising myself that at some point I’ll stop fucking about, simply pretending to do this writing lark. Inspired by various friends who are making significant life changes and forging new careers for themselves later in life, I knew this was the moment. I think […]

  • New Life

    New Life

    You can, for a while, quite happily pretend that even as the World collapses around you, everything is fine. I watch people do this every day. The speed at which we adapt to change is, after all, as unique as eye colour and shoe size. However, I will admit that I’ve been loathed to accept […]
