AWOL and a Poll

AWOL and a Poll

Three months. Wow. I am so sorry. I have been a terrible blogger. Bad, bad blogger, indeed. A lot happened in those three months. Plenty of wonderful, adventurous, happy, sad, confusing, exhilarating, utterly bloggable things. Great things to write about. Unfortunately, I am developing a track record of apologising. My last post, all those months ago, exhibited the same … Continue reading

The Look

The Look

This is Part Two of a three part series. You can read the first part, The Inquisition, here. “The water is coming,” I called out nonchalantly, refusing to divert my gaze from my computer screen. My deliberate apathy covertly masked my nervous excitement. “How can you tell?” “Can’t you hear the bottles rattling down the … Continue reading

Resolutions 2013, or How To Make My Life Better

People can be quite cynical about “The New Year”. It’s just another night of the week. It’s a completely artificial reason to start to re-evaluate one’s life. It’s always disappointing. No one ever follows through. Yadda yadda yadda. Some people love to spoil everything. Realistically, the Debbie Downers are kinda right. But who are they … Continue reading

Highs and Lows

Hello all and a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yes, it is the first day of the year 2013 and I have returned after my short, but well-deserved leave of blogging absence. I apologise for failing to notify you all about my December break, but I always feel so narcissistic to announce to the world that I … Continue reading

Heathrow Injection

Heathrow Injection

Winter is a harsh bitch, and she resides in London. Weather forecasters will try and have us believe that Winter hasn’t arrived yet. They can’t be trusted. The fact is, she never really left. She’s been hanging around all year, trying to gain permanent resident status. Sure, she has been on forced vacation for some … Continue reading
