The Secret to Agelessness

I used to laugh a lot. Sometimes I found laughter in the subtle quirks, mistakes and misunderstandings of daily conversation with friends or in observing bizarre behaviour unfolding before me. I would usually be overcome with giggling that eventually morphed into tearful jerking spasms of laughter if given even the slightest encouragement. Then there was […]

Fonts and ALL the things

This “having a website” thing is turning out to be an interesting learning experience for Erin and me (yes I have verified that it is “me” not “I” with the grammar Nazis).  There were many things we did not know before starting this adventure.  Many. So many, I can’t even begin to list all the […]

Simplifying Sentimentality

  Living in a caravan can look a bit untidy. I’m sure when an unexpected visitor looks in through my door and sees a giant jar of sludgy looking water (water kefir fed with brown sugar), a bunch of rather ripe bananas, a wash cloth, a backpack, a few books and a bicycle tube all […]

What virtual playgrounds and carrots can do for you

  There’s an expression in the cycling world called “bonking”. When you “bonk” on your bike it means you burst through the start gates like a frenzied rat with the wind up your tail and a few hours later you hit “the wall”. Your muscles are more useless than one of those “you’re as useless […]

Let’s take it back to the (safe) beach

 Whenever I think of the beach I think of blissful childhood holidays with my family in Sedgefield, running and swimming for hours, care-free.  Just sand, salty water, sun and the wonderfulness of it all encapsulated in the smell of coconut sunscreen forever afterwards. But the beach by myself these days is quite different. When packing […]

Ou tjor

I go for monthly writing classes with Cathy Eden.  It’s like AA for writer’s so it’s more of a support group than a how-to-get-published class.  They are a life-line for me.  It just feels better to struggle with others than to struggle by myself although of course the irony is that it then stops being […]

Giving Consequence the Eyeball

One day on my regular commute by bicycle, heading home after work, I stopped at a robot (traffic light) and waited for green. Are you still with me?  I promise this isn’t about road rage or the equal rights of those that commute by bicycle. I can’t remember now whether I moved off early without […]

About the Other

I’m Kerrythe.  The other Survivor Bunny.  Like Erin said, surviving is definitely present continuous and I have found writing to be that very subtly supportive rock of a friend throughout my life, helping me to be more aware of, accept and let go of things that weren’t working. So that’s why I love writing. However, […]

About This

Before we were teenagers we started a Barbie Club and named it some long silly name we can’t remember like “Rollerblading Magic Rainbow Hair Sparkle Fruity Fairydust Club”.  Acronym RMRHSFFC.  Totally immemorable and impractical.  But it was special to us.  It made us feel like we had our own “thing”.  A top secret world of […]
