Blunt…

Yesterday I fucked up in a way I haven’t for years. Communication via text is always problematic for me but yesterday was completely and utterly spectacular on my part. Having anticipated a difficult conversation I suddenly found myself misunderstood by two people I assumed wouldn’t misunderstand me. The conversation went completely backwards to my expectations … Read More


Thinking Day

I’ve written before about having been a Girl Guide and maybe mentioned that The Jellicle thinks they’re some kind of secret cult organisation. Today is Thinking Day, which is the day celebrated as a sort of founding day by most Guides and Brownies and Scouts. The weirdness that is having the same birthday as your … Read More


Goals

I’m a very goal oriented person. I need to have something to aim for, often, the wilder the aim the more likely I am to do it. Hence the Ninja Warrior thing I guess. But it’s weird, the goal becomes my complete obsession, all I can think about, tonight Tiny Blonde Keener became LARP Rep … Read More


Live Action Roleplay

Last year I decided to stand for a student society executive for the first time in well… actually only four years but the webmistress position for the old Pagan Society wasn’t exactly an active role.

It’s my diary online. I’ve been criticised a lot in the past for just writing about my life, after … Read More



My Birthday

I particularly enjoyed baking my birthday cake today. Coffee, chocolate, four layers! Lately one of my favourite things has been spending time with DS Luke, … Read More



Ninja Warrior

Obviously, despite yesterdays’ post which started out being about moderation and thinking about what I was trying to do before running out of energy, today I am determined to become a ninja warrior. Yes, that ninja warrior. The crazed obstacle course one. I have a plan, it’s not a timed plan but it’s a plan. … Read More


Starting the Year

I always start the eyar full of good intentions, I’m going to get organised, I’m going to tidy the house, write all the things and become better at managing money. What has happened every year since about 2009 is that I’ve whizzed around until I collapsed. I find it very difficult to manage the weird … Read More
