A Voluptuous Mind · Blogging


I've got some annual leave this week. While I've made a few plans - dinner with a friend, cinema, tattoo on Thursday - let's not pretend I'm not spending the majority of it on the sofa with The Handmaid's Tale and various films, while my tea kettle works over time. My intention is to also… Continue reading Drafts

Weekly Digest

This week I'm digging: Marcella IMDB Synopsis Marcella Backland left the Metropolitan Police for the sake of her family, only to have her husband leave her.

Life Without Blogs

Your life without a computer: what does it look like? Via The Daily Post (January 27th 2016) My life without a computer would be a lot slower but I'd probably sleep better.

Goals: Redux

People can be really huffy about resolutions and I get it when we're bombarded as soon as Boxing Day is over with spam emails from Weight Watchers and gym groups. But I kind of like them myself. I feel like I'm quite a pro-active kind of chap when I want to be and I respond well to… Continue reading Goals: Redux
