And Then I Woke Up

In recent times, my dreams have been intense. I don’t always remember them, but I often wake up with a feeling like I’ve already lived an active day and confused about starting another. The confusion is born from a strange misalignment of whatever was happening in my dream against what I am facing in the... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

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...

What is ‘Normal’?

I've been asking myself that a lot this week, especially as a lot of people have been asking if things are normal again at work. I am massively overthinking it, but what even is normal in the case of a mortuary where any day can be unpredictable and vary in so many ways. Obviously I... Continue Reading →

Unsettling Things Part II

I knew when I started this series that I could find enough unsettling things for at least two parts, but it would seem that I think I can keep this running for a few more weeks with everyone’s suggestions! Here’s my second little list of things that may or may not be unsettling about my... Continue Reading →

Whatever Will Be

On Saturday it was supposed to be my second wedding date. Well, third depending on how you look at it. We had a registry office ceremony in August 2020 with an original plan of a big festival style party the weekend immediately after. That party was rescheduled for Saturday just gone, and now might happen... Continue Reading →

Unsettling Things Part I

Influenced slightly by the current weather here and the feeling it induces by not being able to make its mind up whether to be bright sunshine or pouring rain, I am focusing on what I can only describe as the ‘unsettling’ aspects of my job for my first blog series for some time. There’s a... Continue Reading →

Out of Focus

After three weeks of absence, in more ways than one, I am forcing myself to write once again if only because my to do list has that one item left to do today. I’m a slave to my to do lists, and this is no bad thing usually. In my not so good moments, the... Continue Reading →
