A year on….

September 15th 2014. No that’s not a typo and I haven’t entered a time warp, that was the date of my first post on this blog. A year on, where are we? For a start I’m glad I’m keeping this going. True I haven’t been as regular in my writing as I hoped and it’s gone through some design changes, not all positive but got to something I like in the end. I still haven’t really settled on any kind of theme, other than I write about things I’ve done that I think might interest people and anything I just feel the need to comment on. Most importantly though I like doing it when I can think of something to write and as I said at the start, it’s mostly been for me. A few more readers wouldn’t go amiss though lol. (more…)

Silver linings from Dark clouds

In about two weeks time it will be a year since I had my breakdown and was signed off work. I have no intention of marking this as some kind of anniversary as although it’s something I’ve learned from it’s definitely not something I want to dwell on and relive, hence why I’m writing now rather than in two weeks time.

Things have changed so much I feel ready to put the last year behind me and move positively forward, (more…)

End of Year – A look back at 2014

It seems to be the thing to do end of year reviews, whether it’s TV shows, best music of the year, best films etc and jumping on the bandwagon I thought it would be good to look back at some of the highs and lows of the year and trace my personal journey so I can see how much better things are now.

Ups and Downs – A week of positives, washout events and controversy

When I started this blog I wasn’t entirely sure what direction it would go in. Would it be a kind of therapeutic diary thing where I’d open up my feelings about the journey I’ve been on with regular updates? or would it just be to record random things that I want to comment on?

I feel I’m still a bit in that phase of seeing how it goes, finding my way as it were. I’ve mostly focused on writing about the events I’ve been attending as these have been good experiences and helped me on my way and in fact I was intending to put up another review this week about one but other things have raised their head and I feel the need to talk about a number of things and hit the “therapeutic diary” button once again.

How did I get here?

Not a “birds and bees” story (sighs of relief all round) and this will be quite a serious post to give an idea where I’m at right now though I don’t intend to make the whole site an exploration of what’s happened. Some context and understanding of why I’ve started this may be helpful though.

I also realised I’ve started this blog almost exactly a year on from when I was here…

Brighton Beach

Contemplation on Brighton Beach

10th September 2013 sitting on Brighton beach after a nice day exploring the town, watching the sun go down through the breaks in the cloud thinking about the usual subjects of life, the universe and everything although without a pot of tea to hand which, as we all know, is a general cure for pretty much anything.
