Welcome to my world: oh look! It’s like a car crash only less pretty …

Last week I was talking about being organised. Remember that. Mwahahahrgh! Yeh. I did mention, I think, that it’d be a while while I set my house in order first? Mmm. Looking at my schedule, it’s going to be quite a long while even for a normal person. But a good day, for me, is like the aftermath of a multiple car pile up. […]

To Infinity and Beyond! Plans for 2018. #NewYearsResolution

Posted January 6, 2018 and visited 106 times, 7 so far today

Heaven knows how many weeks ago it was now, far back in the mists of time, anyway; before Christmas, I posted about my efforts to bludgeon people into reading my stuff over the course of 2017. Basically, I discovered that I had a much higher rate of read-through on my perma free book than I thought and that I should maybe […]

Navel Gazing and Pocket Lint … MTM’s Year in Publishing 2017

Yes it’s time for me to do a round up of business. When I say business, I mean my business, such as it is, not ‘the business’ of world book sales. Anyway here goes. So, how’s it been? So so if I’m honest. Marketing-wise, I have not had the time to do it justice but I’ve turned the corner […]

(Brandy)Butter balls; a bit of Christmas wittering.

Posted December 16, 2017 and visited 219 times, 6 so far today

It occurred to me that I should be doing a Christmas round up soon or at least a what’s on next year. However, I have spectacularly failed to get my shit together in time for it this week — ooooo there’s a surprise — so instead I’m going to give you a recipe … eventually. As you know, I am the original […]

When dyslexic people try to fill in forms … #dementia

Posted December 9, 2017 and visited 310 times, 5 so far today

This week, a cry for sympathy rather than help, hopefully, in a way that is amusing or useful to you. Last night, McOther and I were invited to a Christmas party. We went. He from London, me from here. I met him there. I was late because our babysitter couldn’t get here before 7.00pm — although I had only just hopped out […]

Beeper and Bingy, and free books … #metaldetecting #mcmini #freebooks

Scroogeability factors. Better late than never today. The build up to Christmas is well and truly under way and I am gradually disappearing up my own bottom. As usual I am slightly dreading the holiday period but mainly because of all the travel, the being away from home and the general pain-in-the-arseness of that, the people I visit […]

Coming to terms with #dementia

Posted November 25, 2017 and visited 434 times, 4 so far today

For some time now, I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog, or a website, specifically dedicated to my experience of dementia; with my dad, mainly, but also, these days, with my mum since she, too, is getting very forgetful. However, it seems far more sensible to do it all on here. The subject matter […]

Just the basic facts? I wish …

When is news … Well … not news but … say … propaganda. Yes, it’s a little bit of politics this week. Yikes. News is, and always has been, complicated. However, recently, it seems two things have happened. We’ve realised this. We are too busy to read and understand all the reasons underneath everything. We are […]
