All a-dither

I want to apologise, to begin with, for my absence from the blog this week. It just turned out to be the sort of week where the things that are happening are enjoyable, but don't really sum up to anything in the way of progress through life. I've marked this down as "must do better"… Continue reading All a-dither

What tends to happen

If you pick up your knitting project regularly, what tends to happen is this: you quickly find you have gone from just a cuff to a whole sock almost without thinking. This really flew past. But it doesn't make sense to stop there, does it? Because if you push on just a little more, you… Continue reading What tends to happen

DIY Writing Group

This weekend just past included the first Saturday of the month and that is when, in regular times, I would have been to my writing class at the Castle. The group last met in early March, the museum being closed to visitors before the first Saturday in April. It was after that initial missed session… Continue reading DIY Writing Group

Slightly surprised

I find myself slightly surprised that I am regularly using the B6 9-ring binder which I bought in my local branch of Morrisons' supermarket. As I wrote in my initial review of the product, it isn't a size that seems to have a place in my life, however I have found it is absolutely perfect for short… Continue reading Slightly surprised

Now it’s home

Through the past four months, learning my new job, packing up my belongings, settling into my new home, making a million adjustments, I have had two firm pictures in my mind. The first, courtesy of my lovely sister, was the picture of the changes accomplished and me putting up my Christmas tree. I did this… Continue reading Now it’s home

Bye-bye summer 2019

I can't remember a year when the arrival of September has coincided so exactly with the arrival of autumnal days. Over the course of the weekend, the temperature here has suddenly dropped from highs of 30℃ to 20℃ and the sun that was scorching on the last day of August seems merely warm and pleasant… Continue reading Bye-bye summer 2019

Word of the Week – Loquacious

This is my word of the week; it's plain and simple; it doesn't have multiple applications; there is no need for interpretation; it just means what it means; you don't have to write for ages to describe how and where to use it. There is one simple reason to explain why I came up with… Continue reading Word of the Week – Loquacious

I packed my bag and in it I put…

Today being the first Saturday in the month, I went off to Norwich Castle Museum to my writing class. I thought before I set off that it might be fun to take a photo showing what I pack in my bag when I'm off to class, so here it is. Bag: Knomo "Antwerp" cross-body bag… Continue reading I packed my bag and in it I put…

Word of the Week – Accomplish

Looking forwards as we start a new week and a new month, my chosen Word of the Week "Accomplish" is an exhortation to set goals and strive to achieve something. To set oneself a challenge, to determine a course. It is wise, in setting goals, to accept that we can still accomplish something even if… Continue reading Word of the Week – Accomplish
