And so we're at the start of another New Year. Can't fathom how. Most of us are still stuck in 2019 wondering where the hell the last three years vanished to. Oh, yeah, that. I can't say it's been a happy new year, Christmas was subdued, though I was glad to have a bit of … Continue reading New Year, Old Issues
I do this a lot, I know. I'm sorry. I've not been present on here, my lovely safe writing space, for so long, though I've been lurking around the internet doing other things for the last year-and-a-half. So, what's new? Well, for a quick overview, I was finally able to go to Rosslyn chapel for … Continue reading Happy Re-hiatus!
So March is right around the corner, again... and yet, it feels like the last one never ended. For me, the buzz from the New Year quickly wore off, perhaps even quicker than most other years and January dragged in, February has vanished in a puff (which I'm glad of), and Spring is approaching.

Guess who's back? I don't know why I've found it so hard to write on here in the last 6 months.

Day-Trippin' Back in March, I'd planned to visit Rosslyn Chapel with the family … Continue reading Rosslyn Chapel
The Stand Remake
I love Stephen King. Whether you know me or not, you'll quickly learn how much he's impacted me as a writer and a reader. I love his tireless ability to just keep going and I can only hope to one day feel a little of what that would feel like. But then he'd tell me … Continue reading The Stand Remake
Book Ban Update
Way back at the start of this hell year, I made myself a challenge that I wouldn't buy any new books for 2020. The only exceptions were my Kindle Subscriptions, Audible and the new Dresden Files book. Temptation is everywhere I hadn't realised on the one hand how freaking easy it would be because I've … Continue reading Book Ban Update
