I Am Not Autistic

I didn't fulfil my intention to post regularly throughout July. It was one of the busiest and most emotional months I have encountered for quite some time: Son entered the final month of primary school and the month ran away with us: there were day trips and a two-week transition spell in his secondary school,...

J2: The Happiness Jar

I have a Happiness Jar. I found this idea on Pinterest last year and decided to put it into practice in 2017. For the first few months I diligently and eagerly wrote down the things that happened that made me happy, things such as creating my blog, publishing my first post, my first like, my...

J1: Julybilation for Beginners

Easy one today. Sooo easy. The sun is back! After days of grey skies, cool temperatures and frequent, long showers of rain, we have blue sky and fluffy white clouds and seasonal temperatures. What could be better than catching that warm scent of life and growing things through an open window, the sun shining into... Continue Reading →

When Life Gives You Lemons

Warning: sweary words within. Possibly NSFW. Today I had another one of my small and regular epiphanies.

You asked too much, what a shame. And now you wait. Be patient, be still, be calm. There is no... Continue Reading →

W18: Catch and Release

There are times when you want something so much you can taste it. When your eyes are blind to what's before them and instead they see only visions of what could be and what might be and what could have been. Letting go of a vision is hard to do, to catch hold of the... Continue Reading →

W17: When You’re Never Enough

I've been journalling today and I've been struck by the fact that it's been nearly a month since my last entry. I could pretend that it's because I've been busy blogging; indeed I have been busy blogging but the truth is I've been hiding from myself. I'm a classic type A personality; impatient, opinionated, short-fuse... Continue Reading →

W6: Don’t Stop

As I mentioned in my very first blog post, I am a procrastinator; I'm a champion starter but poor finisher, an ideas person, creative but not self-disciplined or organised. Webruary was announced with the intention of instilling some discipline into my writing for I know that unless I make my intentions public and accountable there... Continue Reading →
