For almost a whole month I have not written a post. This is a long hiatus – the longest since I began blogging (albeit less than a year ago!). But there is a really good reason for this – I’ve been busy, suddenly with dates and job applications (in my quest to find a co-parent and financial support respectively) for my potential baby (I want a … Continue reading Learning is painful. And it takes time.
I’ve packed lots of other stuff without a second thought – books, papers, CD’s, ornaments… but somehow my clothes seem different. Maybe its because, picking up the first batch of folded clothes on the bed I notice the bag I am about to put them into says ‘TO TAKE’, from when I labelled it for leaving Leeds. Then it hits me – the sadness – … Continue reading Its packing the clothes that gets me…
I wonder about my writing a blog as being a way for my life to not go unnoticed. Because much of it, being single, I live by myself. Also my romantic encounters now don’t tend to be part of anything wider – my friends, my family etc, they happen largely in isolation. Its almost as if they don’t happen at all. Of course they do, … Continue reading Bearing witness to my life
So I’m bursting with stuff to say about my Mexico trip so far, and am only just now getting the chance to sit down and write again, but before I do this I really have to mark the fact I now have 100 followers – it may not seem a lot to some people but it just pleases me no end!! Its also a chance to … Continue reading 100 Followers!
If I don’t believe in the fairytale ending, what do I believe in? Another thing – in recognising there is no fairytale ending, how do I set up my life & ensure my own happiness? I still need (we all need) intimacy, companionship, validation, rewarding relationships. So how do I achieve these if it is not through a traditional (for me) man & woman monogamous … Continue reading Monogamy? Polyamory? Open Relationship?
I’ve been tense about this week. Tension = stress = no space in my brain = words don’t flow and I don’t write = unhappy! I realise I cant be properly happy these days unless I’m writing or having thoughts about what I want to write next – when the words just come to me and they have to be written. Stress puts well paid … Continue reading Mexico & My Piano
One of the best things about being in London is that I get to hang out with my mums dog, Diesel. Missing all the walking I did in Leeds, I volunteer to take Diesel on walks most days. We walk down by the brook near mum’s house, immersed in nature, passing beautiful sights as we go. In the summer time… And in the autumn… (such … Continue reading Diesel the Dog
What’s up with me today? Just don’t have the va va voom, the confidence I did before, the last few days actually. Last week I was let down twice by tinder dates. Really got to me. I had thought ‘Finally! I want EXACTLY what men want to give me!!!’ but turns out noooo, some of them can’t get their shit together enough to even offer … Continue reading ‘no idea what to call this post’
I am lucky enough this week to have been nominated for 2 more awards! Being new to this, I was a little confused what this actually meant – when is the winner announced, how do they receive their award etc, but a little research reveals these are blogger peer awards, that bloggers give out to eachother, which is a lovely idea. As such, if you … Continue reading The Blogger Recognition Award & The Black Cat Blue Sea Award
