Allow me to indulge myself, and focus on the good when there is so much bad about.
I am posting this the morning after the 2019 General Election. For many, now is not a very celebratory time; however, here's a poem I wrote about exactly that. Celebration.
Since moving to Southampton a decade ago, the city has continually impressed me and seems to have come on leaps and bounds in terms of its cultural offerings. Now, another jewel has been added to our city's treasures.
No, you’re not mistaken; I have actually published a blog post - for the first time in a while! It’s been two months since I did my last Monthly Muses post. I’ll give you the usual excuse; life has been busy. No, I mean it. It's been really, really busy.
Yes, you read correctly. I've been blogging on here for three whole years! So here's a little something to say thank you.
It's a little late, but nevertheless, here are a few of my favourite things from July. Get ready to do plenty of reading!
Well, we're officially over halfway through 2019! Here's what kept me busy over the last few weeks.
I miss stepping away from the screen, getting my hands messy, and thinking about what things look like, rather than sound like. So when local artist Bex Willis invited me along to experiment with a completely new (to me!) style of art at one of her Cyanotype Workshops, I couldn't RSVP quick enough!
There are so many days out and places to visit in Hampshire that, even after living here for almost a decade, I’ve yet to explore. The Watercress Line is one of these. So when the team there got in touch with me to see if I wanted to go along to 'War on the Line' to see what it was all about, I jumped at the chance.
This post is dedicated to my dear friend Laura, who has been forced way out of her comfort zone but who should know that being comfortable is not weak; in fact, embracing what you really need right now is strong and extraordinary and something to be proud of.
