Pebble by pebble.

One year ago, I took myself to the doctors, thinking I was having a resurgence of the anxiety and depression I’ve battled all my life. View this post on Instagram Took a walk to the seafront and built pebble towers as the sun set. (Videos in stories if you like your waves moving. ) *Deep […]

Thinking of self

Over on twitter today I’ve been involved in a fab conversation with lots of other autistic adults. People have been discussing how they felt post diagnosis, which, particularly for those of us with late dx, can be a whole complicated bunch of things. And then people have gone on to talk about special interests and […]

Saturday snippets

{musing} I was doing so well with blog every day November, then I hit a day where I didn’t know what to write and I was really really tired so I went to bed and that was it. Stopped. How do other people pick up when they falter? (not even asking how people don’t falter. […]

Doing kind things

I try to practice little kindnesses. Letting the guy with three things go past me at the Lidl checkout. Putting my coppers in the volunteer coast watch box in the coop. Giving the homeless woman outside tesco a couple of quid. I hope that stopping and talking to her is kind too. I’ve not seen […]

Monday listening

Ages and ages ago I was going to do a shuffle playlist post. Only at the time I didn’t use Spotify, just listened to Internet radio. So I forgot.

The best photographs are ones with meaning. Happy birthday Smallest.

Friday night

Is fish and chips after a very long day at work. Is the rain lashing against the attic window while I curl up in bed with a book. Is not a night for blogging.

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Today I’m departing from the #BEDN prompts because I’ve got a book to review. Brandon Sanderson’s Skyward Claim the Stars is a fantastic SF adventure, the sort of book I absolutely love. It rockets along with unexpected twists and turns, never slowing to let you catch your breath. I’ve no idea how I’ve not read […]

Light in photography and painting.

We’re going for the pictures speak a hundred words here. I love playing with a camera and light. Exhibit A: Dewdrops. Best taken from the floor, you may end up with wet feet/ knees. Exhibit B: sunset. This a blurred version with silhouettes – I think I was playing with a review camera for this […]
