Well not the supermarket precisely, but you get what I mean. After all, life is not unlike a supermarket with aisles and options and choices. Bright lights, flavours, aromas, colours and a cacophony of sound. Up until recently, I have disliked supermarkets, and even now, I prefer smaller, more intimate independents hosted by characters warm… Read More Something Happened on the Way to the Supermarket
This whole dating thing is not to find a life partner. Certainly not a husband – because I really like my own space and probably more so than most and although it’s great having visitors, it is also stressful having people stay under my roof. I appreciate the company, but it is not easy, so… Read More This Whole Dating Thing
By Jove, I think I’ve got it – finally! It has taken a rather long time (chuckle), but I believe I’ve got to the bottom of my man issues. Where has this sudden realisation come from? Well firstly by getting seriously annoyed by stumbling across this Victim/Survivor/Thriver thing and realising that although I have made… Read More By Jove I think I’ve Got It!
I realised the other day that I have been really struggling with my mental health for the last two years.

Today I am trying to be a feminine woman. Today I am a woman, deliberately and with thought. Today my tangled, dimpled, jolly fatness… Read More Today I am a woman
Again. I had entirely forgotten that I had previously joined the library. I must have done so when I first moved here. It is quite possible as I moved here thinking I would work part time for myself, become an active member of the local community, have time for my creative pursuits. I think I… Read More Today I joined the library
I give myself permission to smile, to cry, to take the time to heal. I give myself permission to be … I am far from perfect, but I don’t need to be. It should not be you, or you, or you who tells me who to be, what to wear, to eat, to drink, how… Read More I give myself permission …
I’m wearing pearls today. I went out. Out further than I usually go, but not physically. Physically the distance was average, just once again to the next town. But mentally further, because I didn’t go alone. Today I went to a garden party in the rain. This I am sure is the first garden party… Read More Today I’m wearing pearls
Goth? Punk? All the colours of the rainbow? Which is more me? Who knows, that changes all the time, but yes, I am at it again.

Cutting our hair… Read More Goth, punk or rainbow me?
