What's it all about?

I never quite know what to say 'about me' - probably because I'm not entirely sure who 'me' is. That sounds very cryptic and existential which I am not, not really.
I'm generally a fairly happy, smiley comfortable-in-my-skin kind of person although I haven't always been, and occasionally I'm still not. But hey, we're none of us perfect and nothing in this life is permanent or certain.

This blog is a kind of mish-mash, pot-pourri, cornucopia of my thoughts, feelings and actions. I started it as an outlet for a very vague creative impulse I experienced one day, when I realised my kids had grown up and I was left feeling a smidgen surplus to requirements. I found myself with some unaccustomed spare time, a fair bit of boredom and absolutely no spare money. The time and space needed to be filled somehow and house work just wasn't going to cut it.

You'll find here a mixture of observations on life, occasional rants, some creative writing and a review or two. All rather bizarrely juxtaposed, which makes this a rather hard to categorize blog - not unlike myself.

If you arrived here via a creative writing site and were expecting to find lots of flash fiction or poetry then you might prefer to visit my other my other blog  which has more writing and much less meandering and ranting. No ranting at all, infact.

So welcome, read, respond. Feel free to leave a giggle, a sigh, a comment. Responses are always welcome and discussion positively encouraged.

  1. I have just read your blog - because you followed mine! I have only just joined the world of social media and hate it. Well, that is to say, I thought I would hate it, and I have done nothing but moan about it since I joined 3 - 4 weeks ago. But actually, please don't tell anyone, but occasionally I do see the point and enjoy reading other people's writing experiences. I like the sound of your ramblings. I'm sure that amongst the jumble of words there is many a jewel. I will keep my eye on your blog and maybe we can share some creative and some not so creative words every now and then.

  2. Ha! Marilyn welcome! I have just been reading your pieces on press releases! I wholeheartedly sympathise!
    Am sure you'll see I have not blogged for over a year (once a year seems to be my average!) but I am just now trying to compose something and am determined to get back into the habit of posting regularly.
    I actually love social media - considered myself an addict at one point, but it can be a beast at times. I do love to read blogs, I generally come away thinking..."why didn't I write that..." and whenever possible I try to leave a comment - I think it can feel very lonely when you have no idea whether someone actually read a post or just clicked a link then skipped on by... I look forward to sharing some words with you - that mught just be the incentive I need!
