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.

Yes, I know it's hard to believe I'm posting something that isn't a theatre review or a poem (#onbrand) but the time has come once again to share a few of my favourite things from the last month of my life.
After a long old January, February was short and, admittedly, sweet. I was back in the theatre a few times, read a few books and went on a mini adventure in London. I found a few new favourites along the way, so as usual, here's a list to share and hopefully inspire.
Let's have a look at what kept me going during the long, dark nights of January.
This post is, admittedly, self-indulgent, and is more for me than you. But if you fancy getting some ideas for your own goals, or you feel like being nosey, or even want to hold me accountable, then feel free to read on.
Here's my first poem of 2019; an ode to the New Year's resolution – the human app upgrade.
This time of year brings out some intense feelings, and it's important for me to remind myself of the good, and focus less on the bad; to celebrate the haves, and ignore the have-nots.
