Two years, has it really been that long!

I recently decided I need to write more. Well, it makes sense really, if I am going to become a writer, I need to write more! I sat there wondering how I was actually going to do this and realised that I had missed something so obvious that it came up and slapped me square… Continue reading Two years, has it really been that long!

Working from Home (well sort of!)

Everything is strange at the moment and there is a new normal! I can't believe that those two words could be put together to describe something.

I am currently in the second part of my first year and really enjoying it.… Continue reading It’s been a while (2 years to be precise!)

He still keeps telling me that… Continue reading Changing direction

A customer saw the advert and rang to book him (I know, nobody talks to each… Continue reading Nobody cares about the Decorator


When it rains, it pours!

Being from the beautiful country of Wales, raining is something I am use to because the reason my little green and pleasant land is green is because of the amount of rain we get! This little story however has a little bit to do with the weather but more to do with how life tests… Continue reading When it rains, it pours!
