Cloudy With Sunny Outlook

Dec 19

So this week was better, things still hanging around that could grey my day but on the whole I feel a little more positive about myself, my work, and my life. A little. Yesterday I finally got around to putting the Xmas Tree together and decorating it. Sometimes I miss having a real tree, the scent of pine is gorgeous, however then I recall still finding pine...

Bad Week Behind Me (start over now)

Dec 12

This last week was awful, business rubbish to deal with (that I don’t feel is sorted even now) led to feelings of worthlessness and failure. I’ve got the ‘imposter’ feeling, even though some things went really well I can’t believe that I do any good. I need to drag my ass out of this quagmire of despair but it’s really difficult....

A Sunny Sunday Day Out

Nov 30

After staying in bed trying to rest my damned back on Saturday only to realise that didn’t work I decided that Sunday I was going to get out of the house. I woke to clear skies and a warmish November sun so shifted my ass and was out by 11am. There were a few places I thought about going but I decided to start at Lancaster Castle as I hadn’t been for a...

Across the Pond : Review of The Astounding Antagonists

Nov 22

I read and reviewed (and enjoyed) Rafael’s “Hexcommunicated” so I was excited to hear he had written another book “The Astounding Antagonists” and bought it from Amazon the day it was released. Of course, life got in the way so I only got around to reading it last week. It was worth the wait. Unlike “Hexcommunicated” which involved vampires and Fae folk, this book...

The Worry Game

Nov 22

Let’s play a game today, how much can you worry about in one hour? I can worry about the regular things – money, my work, my children, my health. What about worrying what people think about me? Whether the government are going to cause a revolution with their policies. All these things can produce copious amounts of worry, yet they don’t have to....

A Gentle Message

Nov 21

I went into Lancaster on Wednesday to run errands and such. I’ve been feeling a little out of sorts lately so human contact has been minimal and planned ahead to alleviate my social awkwardness/anxiety. Imagine my feelings when throughout my walking between errands I was constantly harassed (and I chose that word deliberately) by people wanting me to sign up...

Who would I be without my fears and excuses?

Nov 21

This was a question I came across somewhere a while ago. I’ve been thinking about it lately and wanted to write down some of my thoughts. It would be easy to say I’d be *this*, that I’d be happier, more successful, better … whatever. However who is to say that I would. If I didn’t have my fears then I wouldn’t be the same person,...
