End of year wrap up 2021

This entry is one of my faves to write up and it’s where I analyse the year gone by, reflect on life and how I’ve survived another year as well as still actively posting to my blog. So here I am. 2021 came to an end and another year of fresh new memories, experiences and… Continue reading End of year wrap up 2021

Christmas 2021

So I became ill over Christmas “with symptoms” and ended up sticking more swabs down my throat than Christmas chocolates! I won’t get into logging the ins and outs but let’s just say, the results were negative, thankfully. However, all of this has lead me to be unable to get my booster as of yet.… Continue reading Christmas 2021

Every day life newsy post

So I’ve finished work for Christmas now for a couple of weeks. The school had closed a couple of days early due to the circulating of the omicron variant although I’ve been in this week still to help with the childcare for the children of keyworkers who still attended school. They did split the shifts… Continue reading Every day life newsy post

Online party

Online/virtual Christmas party tonight 7pm UK time. It’s been a tradition for many years now for me to create an online get together to wish people a great Christmas. The idea of the party is to gather some drinks, food and music in the real world and drop by to join in, whether it’s interacting… Continue reading Online party

A thought

Why is it that when I try to take steps to improve my life and happiness (no matter how big or small) it always gets ripped out from underneath me? Today it has happened yet again. The universe just seems to constantly be running against me over trying to find small steps *over trying to… Continue reading A thought

Growing older with new friends

So I found myself thinking about life, friendships and the whole blogging experience. When I first began to journal, I didn’t really “catch onto” the community aspect of things and the main people who read my content were existing friends “off site”. Additionally, quite a few people ended up getting into writing an online journal… Continue reading Growing older with new friends

Life lately

I’ve been taking steps recently to eject myself out of “rut central” and have been feeling better for it mentally. One thing that helps is whenever I do have moments of feeling low or overwhelmed, I try and focus on positivity and everything I do have to be grateful for. I am happy for the… Continue reading Life lately

Facebook fiasco

After the Brian debacle *last year* where he decided he wanted to have a second girlfriend, I had ended up unfriending his Mum on facebook as I didn’t feel that she had been very supportive to the situation. I mean don’t get me wrong, I know she has to support her son, primarily as that’s… Continue reading Facebook fiasco

Curious question

I realise I’ve been hopeless at writing here the past couple of weeks so just checking in to “dust off the cobwebs” as it were and knock out one of my curious questions. Because I love curious questions. What is something you’d be curious to know my opinion about? Or just an opinion you get… Continue reading Curious question

The rut

Somebody told me I’m stuck in a rut and it shows. Am I in a rut? Yeah, probably but as well I do have a lot to be grateful for, relatively speaking. I do try to document life as it is over the upsides and the downsides, though. As far as getting rid of the… Continue reading The rut

Brian’s visit

** I seem to be ridiculously lagging behind in logging life and it’s taken me a while to write up the Brian visit. For those new to my journal, Brian lives in the USA and we were long distance dating for years until covid hit travel plans. We broke up and didn’t see one another… Continue reading Brian’s visit

Facebook has pegged it for now

So Facebook has gone down. It’s “down” along with the other sites they own, WhatsApp and Instagram. It’s interesting how we come to rely on social media sites as part of modern day technology used to communicate and connect people together and it’s hard to imagine life without facebook now, even though I managed okay… Continue reading Facebook has pegged it for now

A change is in the air

I feel as though life is in the process of changing rapidly around me at the moment and I’m waiting for things to slow down. I’ve a post to write about work changes for this school year, I want to log my goals, hopes and dreams for the Autumn/winter months and I’ve still to knock… Continue reading A change is in the air

Brian revisted

After my previous post, I came to be thinking about what I’d love to accomplish from writing a novel and I think a goal that I would feel happy with is completing it within a year or so, self publishing it and having at least one person consume the story I wish to share from… Continue reading Brian revisted

Being a writer

A friend mailed me a book to read recently so I ventured off into the garden to immerse myself into the story for a while. One thing I thought about whilst reading it was how much I prefer books to “get to the point” of the story, books that focus on the characters, plot and… Continue reading Being a writer

Life lately

It’s been over a month since I posted although I’m not really sure why. I guess life has just got in the way. Anyway, I think this entry will be a little bit of a run down over “life lately”, rather than anything profound. I might just break up “life lately” into two or three… Continue reading Life lately
