My Writing Process: There’s An Octopus On My Ceiling

6th August 2018

And so, I’ve been thinking about giving you guys a peek into my writing process, but I don’t have one. Here’s yet another piece I wrote, a few weeks ago now, about not writing.  I’m re-posting it here, because I wrote it, and it’s the truth. July 26th, 2018. The day before yesterday, I stayed up til 1 a.m. to write and hit publish on a piece for the #30Posts30Days challenge. (On Medium. The challenge was started by Frank McKinley.)…

Self-care & Cupcakes

9th July 2018

Funny story, I downloaded a meditation app.  It’s called Calm.  And I actually used it.  To meditate, find relaxation, hide, whatever.  This happened, a grand total of once.  So far. But let’s back up. My kid turned four.  And I met Katie from Fatty McCupcakes.  On the same day.  It was a groovy day. A day that included 20 cupcakes, 14 penguins, and a unicorn.  Or so we thought. The night before Isla’s birthday, Neil and I were wrapping Isla’s…

8th June 2018

‘I only give Purple Monkey to people I love.  So here.’ Isla shoved the aptly-named purple monkey in my face.  This recentish favorite creature was rescued from an otherwise depressing trip a safari park, back when Pokemon Go was still a thing. Purple Monkey follows Isla wherever she goes, every second Tuesday. I felt quite special when Isla decided I could take PM to The Bloggers Bash. We’d been at Dad’s for a barbecue.  With no marshmallows.  Made no sense,…

Have A Nice Day

13th May 2018

‘You know how new hair grows in under old hair?’  I said to Neil through the bathroom wall. ‘Yeah?’ ‘Well, all my new hair is gray,’ I said. Before we headed off on our most recent road trip, I spent some time looking at myself in the mirror. I figured out some things.  I should probably drink more water. I may start wearing some make up, all the time.  But not really. Ah’m no bad, as they say over here.…

Not Cool For Cats

9th May 2018

Isla’s at school and my coffee is half finished already.  I want to say there’s a balmy breeze outside.  But it’s just a breeze.  Or fresh.  Or a great big wind. You’d be forgiven for thinking it’s October.  And I can’t believe it’s May. Today, I’m writing these words on the giant desk-top I like to call Truman Bubbles. If you’ve been hanging with me a while you may remember Coffee Gate and then Coffee Gate 2.  The times my…
