    Your Cheating Heart

    I will admit this morning to feeling like a bit of a fraud when I woke up. I’ve been spending money that would have been on cake and chocolate on a bi-weekly sports massage instead. As you can see, the night *after* a massage my body gets a really decent rest period, but undoubtedly this […]

    Stone Thrown

    I wanted to make some observations on the back of an incident yesterday in my timeline where Person A decided to accuse Person B of something that, at least from where I was sitting, was absolutely not the case. Having personally been the victim of abuse after similar incidents, I understand how horrible and distressing […]

  • Yesterday


    Today will soon be tomorrow. When that happens, have you done enough? Did you justify your existence with merit? What do you have to show for 24 hours spent? Are you angry? Is this fatigue that drags you down? Do you wish and regret the moments passed? Too many questions, not enough answers and the problem […]

  • Sunrise


    This day has been coming for a while. Combined sleep deprivation, plus frustration over progress in various places, has combined into the Perfect Storm where my brain and body finally begin to communicate. That means I’m here to tell you that the main thrust of today is simple: MOVE FORWARD. I have to end today in […]

    I read with some interest in the ‘Community’ I inhabit that there are those who have suggested to others it might be a bright idea to start boycotting people on Twitter who were, in their minds, unduly negative. Of course, this makes perfect sense when you think about it, because absolutely the best way to promote positivity […]

    Woke Up This Morning

    There’s a look in Catherine Tate’s eyes when she’s mid ‘bovvered’ that speaks to me in a way I’ve only just registered. It is the absolute certainty in my mind that she’s not acting: for the briefest of moments there is an almost brutal honesty to the performance. Despite what people think of me, and […]

  • Change


    I understand why the image above matters to so many people, why the expression is thrown around by those who want to help others gain a notion of individual self worth. It is often all you need to do, just to be yourself. Except as time has gone on for me, this expression has begun […]

  • Fairytale


    Today is somebody that I know’s birthday. This person… well, I owe quite a lot to them. They aren’t really aware of how much, because I’ve never taken the time to tell them why. Because I don’t want to embarrass them in public I won’t mention them by name, and I don’t have to. They know this is about them, […]

  • The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret

    The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret

    This man saved my life in the week. Not literally, you understand, but in a purely metaphorical manner, and not the actor I might add but the character that he plays. Have I confused you enough yet? That’s Gareth Mallory, current head of MI6 in Eon Productions ‘James Bond 007’ Universe and he turned up […]

    Yesterday was fabulous. I went to the V&A (again) but this time with a purpose: a talk on America photographer Paul Strand, who has a significant retrospective on show. I studied this guy briefly in my early 20’s but never actually grasped the significance he had not only on early ‘candid’ photography but later on portraiture and […]
