  • Hotel California

    Hotel California

    It’s 6.30 am, and I’m awake with cramp in my left leg and insane urge to pee. Having drunk and emptied my bladder, I sneak back into bed, only to be met with the following: “You’ll never guess what happened last night,” says my husband, and I’m already imagining what new horror 2021 has presented. […]

  • Sabotage


    That was 36 hours that will live long in the memory, and it’s not over yet. Of course, it’s not even close to being done but what happens next isn’t a test of the man who’s still in charge, it’s a check and balance of everything else. Now we see who works out what. Now […]

  • Go

    I promised myself no Patreon work across weekends, and so this weekend I’m doing all the stuff that didn’t get done in the week because of Patreon. I KNOW, this is not how it is supposed to pan out, but it is going to take some months to establish a viable working criterion. More importantly, […]

  • Fragments of Self

    Fragments of Self

    Yesterday, lots of stuff got fixed. Some of it is permanent, other bits are just beginning. My exaggerated anterior pelvic tilt is now well on the way to being far less of a problem: this will help enormously with benching the weights I want to be playing with in the months that follow. The exercise […]

  • Big Time

    Big Time

    This week’s been fucking mental, it has. The 5 of 7 days with exercise is working out quite nicely: ideally I should break on Tuesday instead of Sunday, which is easily fixed going forward.ย Thus far, Fitbit has recorded 369 active minutes and we’re only at Saturday lunchtime. Steady momentum, meet consistency. I’ve today also exceeded […]

  • You May be Right

    You May be Right

    I did say I wasn’t going to talk about therapy, and the pressure is off for that because it will now be a further two weeks before we start. Yesterday was aborted after my counsellor had a family emergency, which left a lot of emotional energy with nowhere to go. However, it got dealt with […]

  • You’re the One

    You’re the One

    Yesterday I drove to a Westfield that is normally visited by train, because other people doing the work whilst I sit in carriages and write poetry is the preferred method of transport. However, as I took the youngest to see her first movie alone (you should all do it, it’s a rite of passage) she […]

  • Running on Ice

    Running on Ice

    Okay then, time to be honest. I dunno whether it is just because I am tired, or not fuelling properly, or whether it's just grey and depressing December but FUCK ME that exercise session was beyond hard. — ๐ŸŒŠ Sarah ๐Ÿ“ Shonky [Festive] Hankering ๐ŸŒŠ (@AlternativeChat) December 5, 2018 We are reaching a crossroads in […]

  • Beautiful Day

    Beautiful Day

    This is my home. Some may consider it garish and soulless, but only because they have never taken time to truly understand its depth and warmth. My home is beautiful. @mysouthend pic.twitter.com/6f1JMm94sE — ๐ŸŒŠ Sarah ๐Ÿ“ Shonky Gubbins ๐ŸŒŠ (@AlternativeChat) September 25, 2018 Not gonna lie, would rather be outside. Instead, BRB, seeing if the […]

  • Moving On Up

    Moving On Up

    I’m not entirely sure, but it does feel as if progress is being made.ย There was a silent promise at the end of August to wean myself off the scales, and that means I won’t weigh myself until October 1st. It is an incentive to go and work REALLY hard at the Gym, plus eat better […]
