Land, Wasted

When I was in year 11 and striving to meet the requirements of a good English student, I signed up for the extension English class. I was really excited about it; I considered myself to be a word person, and even though I only received average grades in English, I knew I could do it. […]

March 2020 Reading

March wasn’t the biggest reading month, but I’m still happily making my way through a few books I’ve been reading for a while. One of which being The Woman in White (Wilkie Collins). I’m really enjoying it, but am only getting through a few pages a day due to the small font and heavy writing […]

2020 Goals

As I’ve said before, I don’t particularly like the term ‘resolutions’. What I do like is having goals, and putting them into smaller goals so you don’t feel overwhelmed. I don’t see any problem in having vision of what you want your life to be like, but I do also want to leave room for […]

January 2020 Reading

For this month’s reading list, I thought I’d try out a different format as there are a lot of books to get through. This month I read numerous poetry books that I ordered online. I love these poets’ spoken word on YouTube, and I thought it was worth supporting the small publishing house. If My […]

Settling into 2020

I understand the hype of January, and the feeling of refreshment and changing things for the better. But I don’t understand the pressure of needing to be perfect by January 2nd. I have goals for the year, yes, but you can’t be expected to have everything together by the time February rolls around, let alone […]

Also because in the past few days I’ve been submitting more writing to online journals, etc., so blogging hasn’t been my priority. As I wrote in this post, this […]

Nanna / Poem

My Nanna died last week, and I don’t know if that’s a strange thing to put online or not, but here we are. I wrote a poem (at one in the morning when I couldn’t sleep) about her which will be read at her funeral. She hands me the plate Even though I have already […]

December 2019 Reading

As we reach the end of the year, I’m happy to say I read over 100 books! 108 in total, though I may be able to scrape in another one or two before January. This month I did read a few books I haven’t reviewed; two Irene Hannon’s (Christian fiction, not Amish) and a Jan […]

History / Poem

November 2019 Reading

I’ve read 100 books this year! Which means my secret not-so-secret goal of reading that many this year has been fulfilled! I’m so chuffed about it, especially because this year I made an effort to read books out of my comfort zone. And for the most part, it paid off by discovering some gems. Because […]
