#MayWriteABit 2020 day 14, 15, 16 Catching up again! I’ve had very little inspiration for this sequence, certainly not enough for one post each, so it makes sense to do another combo post. The main thing that comes to mind are memories of the horrible ages of 14 15 and 16, those awful growing up … Continue reading 14 Going on 16
#MayWriteABit 2020, day 13 I’m not in the slightest bit superstitious, there is no room for Triskaidekaphobia …although it is a fabulous word. I do love a nice polysyllabic BEAST of a word lol I do consider myself to be a bloody unlucky person though. Luck changes however, and the last 13 years with my … Continue reading Luck both good and bad
#MayWriteABit 2020. Day 10. I’m going to stop mentioning that I’m totally stuck in arrears with this, but even if not writing daily I am thinking about writing daily lol So, when I got to 10, what did I think of? ‘Best of’ lists and ‘top tens’ so with no further ado, and NOT in … Continue reading Give Us a Tenner…
A few days ago I was invited to join “#MayWriteABit 2020 mutual support group” on FaceBook. I was ambivalent, but have been reading group members’ comments as the kick-off date of May 1st approached. I finally decided to go for it this morning. Those of you who’ve been around on this blog for a while … Continue reading M’Aidez! #1
We had my ma and pa over for a nice meal a few weeks back, to celebrate their SIXTIETH wedding anniversary. SIXTY!! She arrived [as usual] with various carrier bags of stuff- a load of net curtains for me to shorten, a bag of clothes to go to the charity shop, and a large carrier … Continue reading Hearts and Flowers, Buttons and Bows, Old Lace…but no arsenic. I hope.
I turn 60 this year. SIXTY. Blah blah age is just a number, you’re only as old as you feel, 60 is the new 40 yeah yeah right. SIXTY FFS! I never got pearls for my 30th. I never got rubies for my 40th. No gold for my 50th [although I had a new wedding … Continue reading Shine on you Crazy Diamond Dog!
Yes, it’s that time of year again, and I’ve been enjoying everyone else’s summaries and best/worst lists, so I need to buckle up and get on with my own. I’ve spent a couple of hours listing my posts, doing some numbers, and totting things up, and surprised myself somewhat. Numbers I’ve blogged far fewer posts, … Continue reading That Summary Feeling…
I’ve just been binge watching quite a few YouTube posts from a new favourite, Jessica Kellgren-Fozard. If you haven’t seen any, off you trot, shoo, see you in a bit. Jessica posts about her experiences as a disabled [and very glamorous] gay woman, her marriage to the equally lovely Claudia, vintage style, royal history- oh … Continue reading An Ex-Men Origins Story
2018 packed and left, and we’re already nearly two weeks into 2019! I haven’t done any summing up, or ‘best of’ posts, so I spent some time this afternoon looking at statistics and browsing rapidly through this year’s posts to see what’s what. Ready? Part 1, numbers and fails 90 posts [fewer than the two … Continue reading Summation part 1
Not Tina Turner [grrrr-owl] but Steampunk of course. Lincoln’s Weekend at the Asylum, 2018. This is a long post, I’ve pinched lots of pictures from Facebook because we NEVER see all the best stuff! It should have been posted a few days ago, but IMGUR went wonky and I couldn’t attach any pictures. Enjoy! We … Continue reading Steamy Windows!
