I sometimes (who am I kidding) quite often question what I am doing in life. My work, my love life, the social side of things – basically everything that makes up life. Usually this happens very late at night or very early in the morning but question I do. And fret. Oh gosh do I… Continue reading They had an off tasting bit of orange, they weren’t judging your life. Possibly?
This morning someone ‘liked’ a blog post that I had written last year in June. I had obviously had a lot more time on my hands last year or because we were only just getting used to lockdown and doing nothing when not at work, I didn’t feel so guilty. Clearly I was listening to… Continue reading A year on, what I would say (and add)
In case anyone is interested, I am a little nervous About the easing of restrictions and the opening of the world again. In case anyone is interested, I can’t get fully excited About social events, big events, because there is always the risk looming. In case anyone is interested, I may still wear a mask… Continue reading In case anyone is interested…
Quite. A word that implies negativity. Not quite good enough. Sort of. Alright. But Claudia Winkleman turns that around in her fabulous non-fiction account. She puts quite as the level of expectation we should have for our lives. For our days, our experiences – everything. Put it this way. You go out for the day.… Continue reading Quite by Claudia Winkleman
A quote to live by. Quoted in a book that should live by your bedside. Midnight Library by Matt Haig. It makes you think, doesn’t it? So often in life we see things differently to how other people see them. Things, words, situations can all be interpreted in various ways and it is important to… Continue reading ‘It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see’ – Henry David Thoreau
Written on July 5th 2020 I’ve not written in here since May 24th and I’m surprised I lasted that long to be honest. Each day has been a repeat of the one before and I am exhausted with it all quite frankly. The news is just so depressing. I have found a good series –… Continue reading A line a day during a pandemic
Like many others, I hadn’t been to the dentist for well over a year. In fact, when I asked my dentist on arrival into the room when I was last seen she told me it was November 2019. I paused a moment to consider all that had happened in the time between visits. My gosh.… Continue reading A global pandemic and a trip to the dentist
I work at a place that demonstrates the uniqueness of people. Sometimes we have problems to solve, but mostly days are spent chatting to lovely people who come along to our shop and Post Office for varying reasons. I think lots of the time recently, particularly among the elderly, the trip is the first time… Continue reading The People’s Postcode Lottery got me two more books!
One of my bugbears is always being in a rush. Or, more accurately, trying to cram so much into the little time I have that I end up running about trying to fit it all in. Stressing. Take this morning for example. I start work at 10. I woke at 7:30. In the time between… Continue reading Take another minute, always
There’s this thing that I do most nights and it began in early 2020. That thing is drink. Wine mostly, sometimes beer but usually it involves alcohol. As the weeks close and another Sunday is ready to be enjoyed I release a little on a Saturday evening and find myself getting drunker quicker. It’s lovely.… Continue reading Music through the decades
