Get Unstuck. Walk.

It was raining on and off – the perfect day for cosying up with a blankie and a book which is exactly what I’d been doing the whole morning. I felt the need to connect with the outside world, to interact with strangers and talk to them about everyday things in meaningful ways. I wanted […]

Why everyone should write

Just about every time I sit down to write I start with “Really need to write more”. I also noticed I like to thank my books and pens a lot for how they serve me so loyally, saying things like: “I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have books to write in and […]

DO NOT read this if you are feeling at all hungry

There in the fridge sits A tart sweet, buttery coconut and marmalade crust Its baked-in seduction Seeps Slowly Through the door seal Its stealthy stickiness sneeking Over kitchen tiles creeping Down berugged passage sliding sideways And then a bedroom door that’s found ajar A gap! Surprise! Hahar! A terrifyingly irresistible trap It’s followed your wondering […]

It’s ok not to specialise – maybe you’re a Scanner

What was I going to write about? Oh yes, “Scanners”. No, not the type you use to make digital copies of family photos to store on your PC but, rather, a type of personality. They have also been referred to as generalists or multi-potentialites. The term “Scanner” is used by Barbara Sher to describe a […]

Why you shouldn’t go it alone (unless you really want to)

I’ve been having one of those weeks when I feel considerably fluffy headed. I can’t think clearly. Although I felt more like it was clearly, “I can’t think”. At all! I decided while feeling like this it would be a good time to binge watch YouTube videos, my latest obsession being the motivational/self-improvement category. Those […]

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 […]
