Into the Lions Den

I am struggling creatively, I am not going to hide from that. Even simple technical practice has fallen by the wayside as my motivation has waned considerably in the last month. The clearing of my office and regeneration of my creative space did not ignite a single spark of inspiration, I was relieved, mostly, that… Continue reading Into the Lions Den

Dear Diary: Vlogging, Nipsy Hussle and Breadcrumb Trails

The eagle-eyed will have spotted a set of pictures of Cumbria. A beautiful sunset where I took the full opportunity to take a lot of pictures and experiment with some raw lens effects using a couple of camera phones, although I didn’t have any extra lenses with me because the main purpose was to celebrate… Continue reading Dear Diary: Vlogging, Nipsy Hussle and Breadcrumb Trails

Dear Diary: Changes

It is obvious that I have been changing things around the blog, in deference to Mr Dylan the times are indeed "a changin". However, and I do love a good subclause, changes recently have not been only of the blogging kind, although, that, for now, would be excitement enough. Well, perhaps that, and a new, to… Continue reading Dear Diary: Changes

Poetry Corner: School Days

With a happy clip-clop and the begrudging trudge Some of them early and some of them late, Some never even arrive at the School gate, They arrive alone or with their mate From happy homes and some not so great   Battered book bags and lunches packed, Too many weary with troubles stacked, In need… Continue reading Poetry Corner: School Days

Thinking Out Loud: I used to try really hard

It seems a very long time ago that I downloaded a blog planner and I was reading pages and pages on how to create content that would engage readers and grow an audience. I would be carefully timetabling days so I could create content, especially my Monday Night Reflection, which was so very dear to… Continue reading Thinking Out Loud: I used to try really hard

Dear Diary 24th April 2017: I had a Plan

Day one of getting things back to normal, well I guess it really was back to normal. My wife drove off to work and I decided to hit an errand early before I got my telephone appointment with my doctor at 10:30am. Sort of odd having the Doctor have reception ring me up and make… Continue reading Dear Diary 24th April 2017: I had a Plan

Dear Diary: 20th February 2017

Don't stroke the Mouse! Mouse was rushed into hospital last Tuesday with a suspected stroke. Nearly a week later all we can say for definite is that Thursday night his brain showed no sign of damage. 20 stroke like episodes later Mouse can barely move his left side or speak. His NHS experience is far… Continue reading Dear Diary: 20th February 2017

Dear Diary: 1st Feb 2017 First Entry

I am a terrible diary keeper, and I moan a lot. So I thought why not just when I felt like being a diary person put it here and I can be moaning, mundane or whatever with an audience which makes wallowing the mud of self pity completely acceptable. Feeling bad because this week rather… Continue reading Dear Diary: 1st Feb 2017 First Entry
