The Ups And Downs Of A Creative Life

Topic Tuesday: Failure and Mistakes

Failure, mistakes, trial and error. All ways of expressing the same thing, opportunities to learn, but heard to understand them as such in the moment.I’m a planner, I love to plan, to come up with game plans and schedules.

John and I don’t care for Valentine’s Day, we prefer to have a good relationship all year round. However, in recent years, we have taken to collecting cute teddies, but this year we haven’t managed to find one that is to our liking. But maybe throughout the year we will find a new member! Have…

Warhammer 40K And The Joy Of Making

Hello dear reader! I have been busy over the last few weeks. In my previous post, I made various statements about what me and Emma wish to do this year. All of this has been pulled into sharp focus over the last week or so as I have been battling a furious illness, but I’m…

A Peek in our Window

I’ve just got in from the weekly shop for food. Well, that’s a bit of a lie, I’ve been home for awhile, but I was spending time with John. He’s not well again and he’s having to go into work, so I feel guilty. Since I can’t work (anxiety) or even claim benefits (anxiety again,…
