Writing Prompt: Death has been eradicated. War, however, has not.

"No! Mum! Why?!" I wake up, thrashing, ripping the covers that have entwined themselves around my neck. It was just a dream, this time. I can still feel the phantom touch of her failing grip on mine; the passing of time has worn away her face from my memory but never those last few seconds of … Continue reading Writing Prompt: Death has been eradicated. War, however, has not.


Non-Zero November ’16 – Day 4 – Clair de Lune

I've written this short story while listening to Clair de Lune from the Suite bergamasque, and I feel like it should be read while listening to the song. I hope you enjoy it. (P.S. The header image is from wallpapercave.com.) He walked slowly through the snow, making sure not to mar the other footprints with his own, occasionally jumping … Continue reading Non-Zero November ’16 – Day 4 – Clair de Lune

Futon Thoughts: I went to the hospital today

At 10:50am today I had an appointment at the gynecology ward to discuss the possible return of my Endometriosis. I walked into the waiting room thirty minutes early (as usual - I'm always early for healthcare appointments, just in case) and I actually got called in early. I was lead to a room where I would … Continue reading Futon Thoughts: I went to the hospital today

Futon thoughts

Rain on window pane

It's raining outside. I'm writing to you from the futon in my spare room, whilst leaning against some thoughtfully arranged cushions and pillows, with a blanket in arms reach and a hot chocolate on the way. I will add that I was literally carried in here by my boyfriend and unceremoniously dumped onto the pile … Continue reading Futon thoughts

Project PYFO: Things have changed

So, a while ago I wrote about Project PYFO. It was an attempt to stop me from being lazy and actually get my life sorted out. Of course, being the lazy so-and-so I am, it didn't really take off. However... things have changed since then. On Monday 4th July, I start my new job. The … Continue reading Project PYFO: Things have changed

Project: PYFO

I'm 27 years old at the time of writing this. It looks like I won't have a mortgage by the time I reach 30. I can't decide whether the career route I'm in is right for me. I suffer from Hyper-mobility, meaning my joints ache a lot of the time. I don't exercise, I'm unfit … Continue reading Project: PYFO

Oh, hey there!

A waving whale. Yes. A whale.

It's been a while. Again. I'm not great at the consistency thing on here, apparently and I want that to change. I want to be known as a blogger and I want people to enjoy reading my work. I want to discuss things that are important to me and share my interests with anyone who … Continue reading Oh, hey there!

I Think I Get It Now

All throughout my childhood up until age 19, I knew what I wanted to be when I "grew up". Don't get me wrong - it changed a lot. One year I wanted to be a policewoman. The next I wanted to be a fashion designer. There was probably a point where I wanted to be … Continue reading I Think I Get It Now

Frisson Friday: Christopher Tin

It's Friday again. I missed a one or two (I can't remember) but I have a cracking song (and artist) for you this week. I had heard this a few months ago from a friend, but found it again today as a related artist, while listening to Malukah (see my previous Frisson Friday post about … Continue reading Frisson Friday: Christopher Tin

Today was a good day

What to talk about today? It really was a standard day and nothing interesting happened... Oooh, wait! OK, so, to get home I have to cross a fairly busy road. Today was the first time in about 2 weeks a car (or four) didn't run the red light as I was waiting to cross! The … Continue reading Today was a good day
