Safe Zone

My home is rarely tidy. It's comfortable and warm but our furniture is worn, there are books everywhere and I only vacuum when I know I have guests coming. I believe there's always something more interesting to be doing than housework and I live by this philosophy. I wish I were more house proud but… Continue reading Safe Zone

A History of Silence

The other week was Mental Health Awareness Week and I had planned to post this then as a celebration of my own mental struggles - but of course I never got the time/had the energy to sit down and polish off the right words.

That is my bottom line. Oh, and obviously it's not all that major, just a job change. I'm not selling all… Continue reading Begin

Anxiety, my old friend

I've decided that it's time I was a little more honest with myself, and whoever reads these posts, from now on. To be clear, I don't think I present too false an image of my life. What you see is pretty much what you get, bar the filters I slap on my tired old selfies… Continue reading Anxiety, my old friend
