ONE YEAR ON

ONE YEAR ON

I’ll get to the one year on in just a second. First thing’s first… Apologies  I am a wee bit late with this post (due to less reliable Wi-Fi than anticipated, I am even later to post it than I was to write it!) which I could easily attribute to my...
THE ELEPHANT AND THE BUG

THE ELEPHANT AND THE BUG

The Elephant And The Bug That either sounds like the start of a nursery rhyme, or the opening line of a really corny joke. You will probably be pleased to hear that it relates to neither. In fact, the elephant and the bug to which I’m referring, are Nelly and...
TRIAL SEPARATION

TRIAL SEPARATION

*PRE-POST DISCLAIMER: Lovelyman and I are not having a trial separation. Nor any kind of separation* Now that’s out of the way, I’ll get on with what I wanted to say… Is There Such A Thing As Trial Separation? When we talk about relationships, and we...
NOT ABNORMAL TO ME

NOT ABNORMAL TO ME

To describe something as not abnormal implies that it must be normal, which I suppose is the point of this post. I actually really don’t like either qualifier, so I am using them fairly loosely here to illustrate my meandering thoughts. This entire post is...

EVEN SUPER HEROES HAVE OFF DAYS

In my lifetime with chronic illness, I don’t think I have ever been blissfully unaware of its existence. That’s not to say it has always dominated – anyone who knows me will vouch for that not being the case. It hasn’t even always been at the...
THE DREADED BLOCK

THE DREADED BLOCK

When Creative Block Catches Up With You Let me start by apologising for my uncharacteristic silence lately. I am well aware that July and August were more than a little lacking on the blogging front. I could launch into a million and one excuses; tell you about the...
WELLNESS COCKTAIL

WELLNESS COCKTAIL

Where I’m At At the end of last month, I wrote about the magic ‘R’ following my first positive appointment with my consultant in a very long time. Since then, I am learning that (not to take the sheen off the good news) remission doesn’t feel...
A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

Would it really smell as sweet? I want to preface this post with the headline that there is good news contained within. It is a long, long while since I have had something really positive to share, so I am going to enjoy every second of the process. You may remember...
CARETAKER

CARETAKER

Everyone has the capacity to care for something or someone; it is part of our human makeup. Whether everyone has the capacity to be a caretaker, however, is a different matter entirely. (Just to clear up any confusion – I am not referring to a buildings...
FOOD FOR THOUGHT ON WORLD IBD DAY

FOOD FOR THOUGHT ON WORLD IBD DAY

I find it very apt that World IBD Day falls on May 19th, my late grandma’s birthday. Grandma was a writer and literature lover; her favourite poem was ‘Warning’ by Jenny Joseph. For those that don’t know it, the poem speaks of being an old lady...
