Early March sunshine brings busy days and happy dogs. Piglet is made for sunshine and she’s been romping. I went to the cinema with Holly to see Us because we both love horror films. We had no idea what kind of horror it was but left very satisfied. I also booked a day out with Writers […]

February 2019 Roundup

February has kept me busy with lots of very seasonally inappropriate sunshine that the dogs have enjoyed. I took a Writing the Other course on worldbuilding which ate into most of my spare time. It was worth it, between the lectures and the exercises it gave me some great ideas for editing Codename True Blue. […]

I’ve decided to be more positive in 2019. I’ll still be talking about my media consumption, but I’ll focus on the media I enjoyed and skip past those I don’t have much to say about or perhaps didn’t enjoy as much. I’m still going to talk about representation, though, as it does feel like it’s […]

December 2018 Roundup

December has kept me on my toes. Lots of writing, a few deadlines, some beta reading and even venturing out into the cold. Nige’s Christmas present was a little early – a visit to see Star Wars accompanies by a full symphony orchestra in Leeds. Seeing Star Wars: A New Hope on the big screen, […]

November 2018 Roundup

November has been a busy month with less going out and more writing completed. The colder weather also meant a little more curling up under blankets while Netflix bingeing. Writing November is the month of NaNoWriMo were people are encouraged to try and write every day to a goal of fifty thousand words. I usually […]

October saw a few good films out, with cinema trips for Venom and Bohemian Rhapsody. I wanted to see The Hate U Give, but it hadn’t quite hit release.  It’s been a good month for rep too, I had to think about who to pick for the featured banner! I had a choice between Tan […]

September 2018 Roundup

September was busy with lots of family and friend events. Most of them fun, too! I was even talked into party games, though I cheated and somehow became the judge. That counts as a win. My brother came bearing gifts – with a long and amusing story related to said gifts – which is how […]

August has been another hot, busy month. It might have taken a while, but I’m finally prepared for climate change UK heat. I have a cooling scarf, some clever socks made for hot weather and a special bed for Piglet. She loves it. I spent most weekends out, across to Derbyshire once and Manchester a […]

July 2018 Roundup

July has been characterised by sunshine, heat, and generally all the things British summers aren’t known for. It’s been pretty nice, but I much prefer decent heat when there’s a nice ocean to dip into to cool off. We finished the readthrough on Nige’s script! I know the story outline, but it’s much fun reading […]

June 2018 Roundup

June started off with Piglet somehow hurting her foot and needing surgery. She got through it okay and it healed up quickly, but as usual, the insurance managed to weasel out of paying a decent amount of the bill. Still, the main thing is she’s all well now. I mentioned Lucifer as on the chopping […]
