I woke up at 5 am. Couldn’t get back to sleep. Alarm rings: 7am I walk to the station, trains cancelled, 45 minutes till the next one. I arrive at work 2 hours late. Leave work at 7:30pm. Scrolling through Youtube and I find this song : Colours by Black Pumas. By the end of the train… Continue reading 21st Century Old Soul

Once there was a Fox who lived in a deep, dense forest. For as long as Fox could remember, his only friend had been Star, who lit the forest paths each night. But then one night Star was not there, and Fox had to face the forest all alone. What a gorgeous book, I… Continue reading The Fox and The Star
As I child, I hated Alice in Wonderland, I remember having nightmares after watching the film and couldn’t bring myself to read the books. It just combined my worst fears, not being able to go home, abducted by strangers who were prone to explosive rants and selfish behaviour and a grinning cat.
Life is surprising, getting older has helped me develop a new found appreciation for things I once avoided; green olives, avocados, people and of course the Alice in Wonderland books. I devoured ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, the sequel ‘Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There’ and have yet to read a book that so accurately describes my thoughts on the future and what it may hold for me. Continue reading “Falling into Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass”

Let’s Start: Lianne La Havas ~ Green & Gold I simply adore this song and this artist, such a soothing and… Continue reading Autumn Playlist
Yesterday, people all over the world were getting involved in Love Theatre Day, sharing what theatre means for them and why they love it so much. It was a fantastic way to get a glimpse of the immense hard work that goes on backstage and highlight the heroes that deserve a standing ovation too. If… Continue reading
Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof…
We don’t notice the rain, softly, quietly falling, we are more preoccupied with getting things ready for tomorrow, putting away the laundry, cleaning the house from top to bottom, making beds, doing homework and grumbling all the way to our parents. It’s supposed to be SUNDAY, no school, no work, this was our mantra my sister and I. Continue reading “That Rainy Afternoon”
This post has been very hard to write but I’m glad I got the chance to do it. I started this blog almost two years ago and I still haven’t really touched the surface of what I want to do or what is possible on this platform. It’s hard to say what has stopped me… Continue reading Blogging 101| Figuring It Out
Pleased to meet you again, I know it’s been a long time since we talked and honestly I’ve been avoiding you a little.
You understand right, waking up with the best intentions to publish a post or edit a draft and somehow life gets in the way. The endless chores – I feel like I spent the majority of the day at the sink,washing, rinse repeat and yet the dishes are never-ending. Or chasing up bills, decluttering and working,relaxing with family, friends then the day is over. Sorry, it’s not intentional but I promise I will change and get posting again.
I’ve made a start by signing up to NaBloPoMo~ National Blog Posting Month and now there’s no going back. National Blog Posting Month is a writing exercise where bloggers are challenged to post daily for the entire month, it is a great way to practise writing and get to know other amazing creators. The beauty of the challenge is there is no word limit, and you can use anything as inspiration for your daily post. I’m looking forward to branching out and experiementing with different formats, word lengths, topics that I’m interested but haven’t mentioned before on this blog. For anyone interested registaration is still open here until November the fifth and you can check up all of the other
victims bloggers that have entered.
In additon to this, I’ve also signed up to the Daily Post Blogging University Course ~Blogging 101 which starts tomorrow, it is daunting to think I will be posting every day this month but I’m confident I can rise to the challenge!
Honestly, I can’t quite work out how I feel or what exactly I will write about, I’m a novice so I would appreciate any advice from more experienced bloggers. Is this your first writing challenge, if not what tips can you give me? I’d love to hear from you.
Please go easy on me November, darling.
Day 1 is over and I’m a wreck already, I’d like my sanity if possible to remain intact for the rest of the month.
Signing off for today, see you tomorrow.
Stephen Merchant famously known as the co-creator of ‘The Office’ makes his West End debut, as a nervous disgruntled Ted who spends more time banging on about the meagre refreshments and quality of the doors in a 2-3 star B&B than laying out his solution for humanity’s salvation.
