Blunt…

Yesterday I fucked up in a way I haven’t for years. Communication via text is always problematic for me but yesterday was completely and utterly spectacular on my part. Having anticipated a difficult conversation I suddenly found myself misunderstood by two people I assumed wouldn’t misunderstand me. The conversation went completely backwards to my expectations … Read More


Thinking Day

I’ve written before about having been a Girl Guide and maybe mentioned that The Jellicle thinks they’re some kind of secret cult organisation. Today is Thinking Day, which is the day celebrated as a sort of founding day by most Guides and Brownies and Scouts. The weirdness that is having the same birthday as your … Read More


Goals

I’m a very goal oriented person. I need to have something to aim for, often, the wilder the aim the more likely I am to do it. Hence the Ninja Warrior thing I guess.

Blogging

I started blogging in 2003. I was introduced to it as a concept of keeping your diary online and throughout my (somewhat spotty) fourteen year history of blogging that is what it has been for me. It’s my diary online. I’ve been criticised a lot in the past for just writing about my life, after … Read More



My Birthday

I can’t help it. I love birthdays – I’m weird about getting old (sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it) but I really like doing things for my birthday. I particularly enjoyed baking my birthday cake today. Coffee, chocolate, four layers! Lately one of my favourite things has been spending time with DS Luke, … Read More
