A weekend helping out

Saturday, I went clothes shopping with Jackie. Sunday, I went with Shaun to the tip (twice), collected paving stones and took them to his allotment (twice), and finished the day off sanding down and painting a radiator. I even squeezed in a game of hide-n-seek and washed Myles’ car. From one extreme to the other. […]

Vertigo migraines

The consultant’s verdict

Yesterday was my appointment with the Ear, Nose & Throat specialist. Against my expectation, I was seen 30 minutes early. The consultant asked about my dizziness. When did it start, what’s it been like, how have I been managing. I wore these goggles that I couldn’t see through but he could, and he stuck this […]

A weekend of friends & family

My week in Lustleigh with Kayte and her family consisted of traipsing up mountains, jumping in puddles, and swinging myself up real high on the swing in the local park. This weekend has seen me catch-up with Shaun, and have a surprise visit from my aunt and cousin. There’s been much traipsing around Gunwharf and […]

A weekend ahead of myself

Because of ninja dates changing their days (in line with their wicked ways) the original plan of meeting Kayte in Exeter went out the window, and so onward to Truro it was. It worked out cheaper doing this, as opposed to going home and trying again the next day. Also, it was more convenient since […]

Cornwall for me, just a day early

On way to visit Kayte in Cornwall. Get myself packed, on the train, on my way, and I’m a day early! Bloody idiot! It seems someone changed the dates days fall on! This means Kayte can enjoy another day of my amazingness 😂 WIN!

A weekend starting at the end

A thought occurred to me whilst scrubbing the toilet on Friday — backwards! There’s no law saying I must start at the beginning. I could start at the end if I wanted to! So I abandoned the cleaning, cranked up the laptop, and got writing. I surfaced to accompany Laura into town and when Jackie […]

A weekend of cousin lovin’

In another reality, one in which honesty comes naturally, this weekend would’ve seen my cousin Jo get married. Fortunately, since we’re in a reality where love has no conditions, this weekend saw a party thrown in her honour. It was a celebration to celebrate who she is. She is an amazing person. FUCK YOU, MARRIAGE! Was […]

Writing & Blogging

I need a break

I’m trying to write too many things at once. I’m trying to write my weekend post that’s spawning other ideas that I’m writing, and this story about some witches that I want to get done. And now I’m writing this post. I need a break. Everything’s turned so now now now when all I did […]

A weekend Victorious

August Bank Holiday sees Portsmouth host Victorious, a little music festival that we’re proud to call our own. Since 2014 Southsea Common, Castle Field, and the surrounding patch has been awash with revelers all mingling for a good time. There’s beer and food, things to do, and of course music. Loud music. I’ve been able […]

I am my own employee

Having stress induced vertigo migraines got me thinking about stress and standing on my feet. In thinking about my feet I’ve drawn the conclusion that mine aren’t the ugliest in the world, and that my two littlest toes are cute. In thinking about stress I’ve determined that there’s lots of it. Some of it is […]
