A bit of a sad one.

Last Friday night I got a Facebook message from one of my cousins, out of the blue, telling me one of my uncles was very ill, by Sunday morning he was dead. He was in his 80s and had lived a long and fruitful life. I believe he was refusing treatment and I think I was supposed to have received an […]

It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to … #dementia #ranting

I’ve sort of been debating whether or not I should post this. I wrote it just too late to publish last weekend and things have been so much better this week that, in some ways, it’s no longer relevant. Except that, from the point of view of the people who read this, I’m now thinking that actually, […]

Gumbification is the name of the game: the capriciousness of science, things and me.

Yes, I have been on holiday! Woot. Apologies for my absence last week. Though on holiday I was writing and meant to sort out a blog post while the others were skiing but I got too into what I was doing and dismally failed to leave enough time. Which reminds me the final score for that week’s writing was 7,570. […]

Pussy Galore’s Younger Sister …

Yes, that’s right, Bargains Galore! Oh ho ho ho, that was in aid of give a crap joke a home week. Once again, through the wonders of modern science I am speaking to you in my absence, this is getting to be a habit. Sorry about that, but what better day for me to post than on April Fool’s […]

Real Life is underrated. Using mundane events to fuel your writing mojo.

I’m not here this week, so by the wonders of technology, I am going to post to my blog and give a talk at the same time. So without more ado, here’s a piece outlining my theories about pimping your world to add realism to your writing. _______________________________________________ Pimp your world! Real life can feel like an unwelcome […]

Toboggan update, a war story and McMini versus Alexa.

It’s been a busy week this week. McMini is due to go on a school trip which involves two nights away. I have therefore been spending most of the week with a list of required clothing working out which items we have and buying the ones we don’t have. Pretty much all of them. In order to try and […]

How not to live number 12: Drains, mailings and finance #IFuckedThisUpSoYouDontHaveTo

Yep there’s a match made in heaven and here’s another how-not-to post from the queen of fuck ups at Spigot Towers. Today’s topics are Drain Rodding, financial prudence and how to alienate just under five thousand potential new members of your mailing list in one fell swoop. Mmmm… bet you can’t wait. OK on we go. […]

Round up!

Today through the magic of science I am speaking to you from the past. Yes, once again, as it’s half term, I’m actually typing this up about a week before it will be published. You remember a while back in this post, I was glossing over the miserable hash I’d made of achieving … well, anything much career-wise in […]
