Kind of emotional today as I put a lot of worry and sadness into a piece I'm writing for Dear Damsels. Their current theme is Connection. My not-so-little sister came to mind. I was around fifteen when she was born, we have an amazing relationship. being apart from her is one of the hardest things … Continue reading Connections
Writing has not come easily, in truth today is the first time I've sat down to write since my last post. A lot has happened in the few days. I've taken my cat to the vets as she's been unable to put any weight on her leg. Caused a an upset at a family games … Continue reading A Lot Of Thoughts
Christmas time is a beautiful and wonderful thing, from seeing family and friends to chocolate oranges and fairylights strewn across buildings. However it is also draining, physically and mentally. Money worries and family politics. That's not to mention the inevitable illness that comes from doing too much and eating out of a routine. It's a … Continue reading Is It Over Yet?
Just a quick update. Today my plans were all over the place. In the end I stayed home (my temporary home at least) and hung out with my little sister. We watched My Hero Academia and she showed me an ungodly amount of Pokemon fusions. Earlier in the day I wrote more of my short … Continue reading Keep The Writing Going
The Morning after my brother's wedding I awoke to a picturesque snowy morning. Here's a short piece of observational writing I jotted down. Through a misted window I watch two greyhounds lollop about. One rolls on his back, biting at great chunks of disturbed snow. A boy, wrapped in a blue snowsuit, watches his dad … Continue reading A Winter Morning
I had the pleasure of attending my brothers wedding a the weekend. It was a wonderful event. An intimate affair, only forty or so guests for the main event. I was asked to do a reading. A reading I was asked to write! after much faffing, many terrible cliched lines and a minor existential crisis … Continue reading A Wedding Reading
Today was a little calmer. I'm still without my laptop and it's more than a little infuriating. My mum's very kindly loaned me some money and I ordered a shiney new laptop a couple hours ago. Today I wrote a little post about a quilt I made for my niece's second birthday. Actual numbers are less than accurate … Continue reading Easy does it
Yesterday consisted solely of running around after my niece. She is flipping adorable. We had the best day together. It consisted of throwing food about the place, reading books, going to the park, singing songs, rolling around on the bed, signing along with Mr Tumble, chasing cats, running around in a circle and two really good … Continue reading Being An Aunt
Didn't get a chance to post yesterday so here it is. I got a few good words down in the morning. Even though each word feels laborious I'm slowly progressing the story.Now my quandary is I have 5 characters in my first chapter. All but one are immediate family and one is unconscious. It doesn't feel … Continue reading Overthinking?
I'm struggling. with writing, with sewing, with socialising. I'm even finding it difficult to get out of bed in the morning. I've managed to do bits of writing, but it's the bare minimum. I feel sad. A heavy, tiring sadness. The melancholy is punctuated by moments of happiness. Today I saw my niece who … Continue reading Things don’t always feel better in the morning.
