My Year In Books – 2022 (part 1) The Widdecombe Special

Although not the first book I read this year, when I started taking notes and writing down my thoughts about this read I realised my ramblings would need a post all of their own. So we are kicking off My Year In Books 2022 with this one. Basically, my life in a book. The One… Continue reading My Year In Books – 2022 (part 1) The Widdecombe Special

Another Level Of Planning

It seems I haven’t written for over a month. I would say that’s because I’ve been living it up. But unless you count reading books, drinking tea and doing cross stitch as ‘living it up’ then it’s probably just that there’s nothing much to say. I did go to the cinema, for the first time… Continue reading Another Level Of Planning

It Takes Time To Be Disabled

I was having a nightmare with my repeat prescription the other week. Who am I kidding, I have a problem with prescriptions most weeks. But this particular problem had taken an email, a phone call with a doctor, a couple of phone calls with the pharmacy, a visit to the pharmacy, missing items, another visit… Continue reading It Takes Time To Be Disabled

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #14

If we were having coffee I’d tell you I feel a bit like I’m dangling in a weird limbo. It’s the end of January but Christmas feels like years ago. I haven’t got used to saying 2022, but then I never really felt at ease with 2021. It’s like I’m still in 2020 but it’s… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #14

101 Things I’ve Done in 2021

Ye I know, you’re laughing at that title already. Thinking ‘well we’ve all been in a pandemic, half of that was in some form of lockdown, and she’s been semi shielding the rest’. Well if there’s one thing a global pandemic has taught me, it’s appreciate the small stuff. Because that’s stuff too. I’ve said… Continue reading 101 Things I’ve Done in 2021

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #13

If we were having coffee mine would be a hot chocolate. I’ve really got back into them lately (spurred on by something you’ll see later in this post), it is the season for it anyway. Gosh has it been cold! It snowed. Ok so, it was the tiniest bit of snow I’ve ever seen. But… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #13

My Year In Books – 2021 (part 3)

It’s getting cold now isn’t it? We had real snow yesterday. Just a little, but it was still snow. What better to do with these wintery nights than to light a few candles and cosy down with a book. So, here’s the latest instalment of what I’ve been reading. You can also catch up with… Continue reading My Year In Books – 2021 (part 3)

That Time I Didn’t See Ross Noble

I should be at the theatre tonight. Right now as I publish this post I should be chuckling so hard that my face hurts, as Ross Noble tells his surreal ponders in that excitable Geordie accent. Instead I’ve got my heated blanket on my lap, and the rubbish that is Saturday night entertainment is on… Continue reading That Time I Didn’t See Ross Noble

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #12

If we were having coffee I’d apologise for being AWOL, there hasn’t been much to talk about of late. And what there has would turn into a rant. That might be coming soon. I’ve been mostly reading, so nothing much has changed there. It’s been a reading kind of year. When you can’t go many… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #12

My Year In Books – 2021 (part 2)

It’s been a bit quiet over here of late. There’s not much to report, but there will be new coffee talk soon, so stick around for that. I have been reading, though. Quite the variety these past couple of months. Here’s my latest lineup, and if you missed the previous instalment head over to My… Continue reading My Year In Books – 2021 (part 2)
