Each day this month I have tried to capture something in either a video or photo which was either the highlight of my day or something which explained the theme for that day. I’ve stitched those videos together and presented them here as a final post on my #28dayblogchallenge – it seems fitting somehow to … More 28) 1secondeveryday video for February.
London, you’ve been amazing. Loved every minute even if my feet have not. Two days spent touring as much of the capital as possible and I still feel as if I have just scratched the surface. So much to see and do, sadly not enough time to see and do it all so had to … More #40at40: 27) London Town
It’s exhausting. I’ve enjoyed the experience, but it has worn me out. Each day putting together a new post, often some research, proof reading, finding relevant images to attach. Then finally monitoring comments, replying where applicable. Towards the end I was fast running out of ideas to write about. It became a struggle as writers … More 26) Why posting a #blogaday is a really bad idea
I’m currently in London and was struggling for something to write about. I’ll write about London when I get back. I turned to Twitter for suggestions, and in amongst ‘vaginas’ and ‘the future of toys’ was this honest gem: Interesting, right? Whatever did happen to good old fashioned romance? Or, to put it another way; … More 25) Whatever happened to good old fashioned romance?
Fast running out of ideas and fast running out of days on my blogaday challenge. Today, in an effort to fill up a little bit of space I’m going to have a look back through the twelve year history of this blog and bring to your attention some of my best (in my very own … More 24) My best blog posts
Sometimes I think that Twitter is a bit like a school playground. A typical school playground, if I remember what that was like all those years ago, divided into factions. You’ve got the cool kids, the geeks, sporty kids, the beautiful people, the successful ones, then there’s the amateur dramatic group, Manchester United supporters, Liverpool … More 23) BULLYING NOBBERS
Conversation the other day about attention seeking and people saying that when someone posts a selfie, that’s what they’re doing. Attention seeking; seeking attention. And it made me think – dangerous, I know – aren’t we all attention seeking? When I write these words am I seeking attention? My primary reason for writing stuff down … More 22) Attention Seeking
“He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.” Friedrich Nietzsche – Beyond Good and Evil I don’t remember where I first heard it. I know though that it was just the first line I … More 21) My favourite quote
“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.” Heard that before? The notion of life flashing before one’s eyes at the moment of death is something which is romanticised. It’s sentimentality at its finest. Make sure that you have lived a good life, a full life, and active life; … More 20) Life flashing before your eyes
Turning forty is not something I am concerned about. Why should I be? An apology for the cliché, but age is just a number… Isn’t it? There are many things said about being forty: Life begins at forty. Forty is the new thirty. You’re not forty; you’re eighteen with 22 years’ experience. *Roll* *Eyes* I’ll … More 19) Turning forty
