A positivity post

Hello everyone and welcome to my new blog! I have to confess that in the last few years I've been really pre-occupied/unmotivated when it comes down to my writing. I've hardly written at all and my other blog over at the Motor Page has been sadly neglected because life has gotten in the way. No,... Continue Reading →

Not getting along well

Last time I blogged about freelancing I was not getting along too well - I'd just been rejected from Copify and was waiting to hear back from a couple of other places. Things have not got better. I was finally invited to join Contena but it actually costs quite a bit of money so I... Continue Reading →

Beaded choker

I've not done any beading for a few weeks but I've recently come across this design for a necklace.It is made using Tila beads, superduos, and seed beads (size 8, 11 & 15). The original pattern said using 39 tilas but this was far too long for my neck so I went with 30 and... Continue Reading →

In the end I’m breaking the habit…

Kathleen Tessaro’s Rare Objects

It's a very emotional book covering some dark subjects, during a period of history which was becoming so enlightening for women - 20s & 30s America.  There were a couple of quotes in there which resonated so much for me. The... Continue Reading →


Another of my favourite Pinterest posters is E.H. She posts a lot of poems.  It's really difficult to make poems that rhyme in couplets without sounding forced or without it sounding senseless & lacking meaning. At uni we were even told to avoid writing poems that rhyme just so we avoided those cliches. Why I... Continue Reading →

R.H. Sin

I use Pinterest a lot for various ideas. R.H. Sin has various positivity posts on there. I love this quote!

Finding peace

One of the hobbies I have is drawing. It's only in the last few years that I have begun to get any good at it, even though I did Art to GCSE level.  I find that drawing gives me a sense of peace, a sense of solace. Concentrating for hours, getting every line just so,... Continue Reading →
