Starting Closer To Home

Looking closer to home when you are dreaming from your bed of the far of lands David Attenburgh has described might be the most anti-climatic symbolism you could muster. Home can become your prison, as awful as it sounds. You know each of the four walls of a room intimately to the texture of the … Continue reading Starting Closer To Home

Blogging Through Brain Fog

Ever since I came back from Madeira I have had the most tremendous brain fog. There are so many half ideas dotted around on my phone, iPad and MacBook. I just can't seem to formulate the ideas into cohesive content. Thankfully, I have had a few spare blog posts but I am aware I have … Continue reading Blogging Through Brain Fog

I Hated Exercise And Now I Miss It

If anyone has run when they are out of shape, you must know the physical sensations of that exertion. Your lungs feel on fire, you get a stitch in your side that stabs with every movement and breathing is an impossible task.

Stuck In The Middle With You

Hello! How is life? I feel like I have so much to catch up on and tell you about my holiday by the sea, in the sunshine.

I Felt Like I Needed To Write This

I haven't known whether to post this but this was my weekend. For all the spoonies out there. It was a hen party night last night and at the grand time of 9pm, I hit the invisible brick wall and then cried the whole way home. It was important night and I felt like I … Continue reading I Felt Like I Needed To Write This

Wisdom and Rainstorms

One of my favourite smells in the world is just after a heavy dose of rain/rainstorm. Especially in the summer, it just smells fresh and new and like the dousing of rain washed away some of the grime left from previous events. Life can become monotonous when you have any sort of long-term illness. The … Continue reading Wisdom and Rainstorms

Fear, Frustration, Fault & Struggling

Frustration. There are two meanings to this word according to Oxford Dictionaries. "The feeling of being upset or annoyed as a result of being unable to change something" and "The prevention of progress, success, or fulfilment of something." At this point in time, both of those interpretations of the meaning of the word frustration apply … Continue reading Fear, Frustration, Fault & Struggling
