Farewell My Lovely*

Writing this with a heavy heart, but have decided to put this blog on hold for the time being.  My energies and enthusiasms are more engaged at present with my new cycling, bipolar and sportswear blog: Www.rapidcyclistwordpresscom.wordpress.com Can’t write two blogs everyday and it is making me stressed trying to keep up with both of […]

Lost For Words*

Ridiculously tired after a full day of spin, shopping, walk, writing the other blog and bath.  Mind has gone blank.   This evening, still need to: 1.  Make gin cocktail for Ginuary:  www.ginuary.com, http://www.ginuary.org.  Have some freshly-squeezed apple juice so will use that. 2.  Reapply dressings which have come off scars.  Tried to photograph them […]

New Year’s Evil*

1.  Have started a new blog: http://www.rapidcyclingwordpresscom.wordpress.com It’s not going to be anonymous and will be about bipolar, cycling and breast cancer.  Am excited about it. 2.  Have been clearing out wardrobe: some clothes and shoes and handbags are going to the Blue Cross to raise money for the pets. 3.  Have a new pair […]

Rope Enough*

“Right, I’m out of the door and on my way,” the message comes through from Seb at 4.04pm.  “Can’t imagine it will take me more than two and a half hours.  So: 6.30pm I reckon.  I’m training it.  Don’t feel like driving.  See you soon xxx.” “See you soon darling,” I reply.  “Please ring doorbell/ […]

Cat Of Many Tails*

Happy First Birthday to this blog. Wow.  When I started it a year ago, I could never have imagined that it would take off in such a spectacular way.  It’s been discussed on the radio, on film and in print.  It has readers all over the world. So, thank you, all of you.  Thank you […]

Birthdays For The Dead*

“I’d like the new Peter Ackroyd Hitchcock biography.  Or the new Kate Atkinson.  For my birthday,” I say to my brother.  He’s shaving his head over the sink, with an electric device.  There’s a loud buzzing.  He probably can’t hear me. “What’s that?” He shouts, turning  off the electric shaver, lifting his head up. “You’ve […]

Hot And Sweaty Rex*

Have been looking at a great blog here: Www.hannahgale.co.uk And thinking about how to make own one more user friendly. 1.  Anyone know how to tag own posts in a post, so if one writes say: “am in the restaurant where I went with the Danish banker” it will link to that post? 2.  Would like, […]

Happiness*

It’s horrible being back from holiday and on my first bus of the two I need to make it to the office.  So am going to take up After The Rain’s gauntlet and share a list of ‘Fifty Things That Make Me Happy’. 1.  The fluffy monster.  The softest, most orange and most affectionate cat […]

The Killer Inside Me*

What blogging has taught me: 1.  In eleven months, haven’t had any writer’s block.  If you know that your readers are expecting a piece, you’ll write one.  It’s the same as writing to a deadline.  Thank you all so much for reading and for all your comments.  It means such a lot to me. 2. […]
