Spring Check In

Best laid plans are always easily ruined aren’t they, at least that what the last two years has felt like. It used to be that something certain would happen, but now it feels like anything can change and especially last minute. In relation to that, I can’t remember how many times I’ve promised, or not...

Tell Me Your Pronouns

This has been one of the harder blog posts to write, and therefore a big reason for my recent lack of posts which many of you have noticed. I’m finding it hard for several things that I am struggling to express or get my head around, but also I feel the absolute need to do... Continue Reading →

New Year Greetings

Just a short one from me today while I still try to recover from having COVID-19 for at least the second, if not a third time. I suspect it is three but I won’t be answering any questions regarding this. Let me just say that yes I’ve had all my vaccines, yes I’ve suffered with... Continue Reading →

It’s All Stuck Together

I do expect that to be read in your head to the tune of 'We all stand together' by Paul McCartney in 1987. If you don't know what that is, please Google it and enjoy. However if, while you are searching, you see a link for ‘The Oriental Nightfish’ I would suggest avoid that one.... Continue Reading →

MG Looks Ahead

At work recently, I had my appraisal to look back on what I’ve accomplished in the past year and to look ahead at what’s on the agenda for the next twelve months. I never really have liked appraisals since working in retail and always tending to find out nothing of any relevance. Or, later on,... Continue Reading →

Where Have I Been?

I haven’t posted at all for around 3 months. This has been for a number of reasons but mainly because my life was completely taken up by a series of stressful things that meant it couldn’t think of what to write. It sounds remarkably silly to even try to explain but my brain needs to... Continue Reading →

Inside. Again.

There’s something hugely ironic about having a great birthday, watching Bo Burnham’s Inside and thinking ‘Well I’m glad we’re nearly done with all that’ and then receiving a notification that I have to isolate for seven days. It may seem out of character to do a weekly update on a Tuesday but that’s because my... Continue Reading →

Grief & How To Get Help

I often mention at Death Cafes, when I open and discuss that the events are not specifically for bereavement support, that if people are seeking this then I can signpost them in the direction of some great resources and charities which exist to support people in these times. The truth is, you don’t have to... Continue Reading →

The Heat Is On

As I type this I have a semi-awful state of sunburn going on which is making me feel incredibly crunchy. Like a true British person, I cannot help but discuss the weather we have experienced recently because we've hit one of those extremes which we all talk about. It's hot. Maybe not as hot as...
