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

Inside my planner / 3

The decision has been made and I have discarded the creative writing sub-section of my planner in favour of a separate creative writing notebook. When I had it as an area within the planner there were only two pages of creative writing and I just don't think they need a dedicated area. That decision being… Continue reading Inside my planner / 3

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

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

Prescience

Not a quote of the week, but a word of the week: Prescience (noun) - foreknowledge/foresight I've been working hard on my knitting through the week and I am getting very close to completing the knitting part. I am very pleased with how this is looking. I plan to finish it with a simple crochet… Continue reading Prescience

Stories for a spring sky

The days are most definitely getting longer here in Norfolk and we are having our fair share of bright days, although accompanied by most cyclists' least favourite conditions - wet and windy. All in all it is behaving pretty much exactly as you'd expect for a British March. It is the weather that makes me… Continue reading Stories for a spring sky
