30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Routines

I'VE fallen behind on the challenge a little - but it seems appropriate to talk about routines when it's my routine falling out of wack that's caused me to fall behind. I'm a stickler for routine. It helps me feel calm and organised - and not panicked. But not everything goes to plan all the… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Routines

Circle of Life

Woosh! And there I go Rumbling underneath my feet Strange faces I've yet to meet Off on another adventure It's the best kind you see One that leads me through Black holes but towards Familiar streets The same stops just different people It is a straight circle And there's only one path I take With… Continue reading Circle of Life

Autumn

YOU walk briskly through the bustling morning streets. Your breath comes in quick short gasps, the cold air burning your lungs and setting them alight like a Christmas tree. The cold air prickles exposed skin, and you sniffle slightly. Autumn has arrived in a fall of burnt leaves and clear, bright mornings, and anticipation coils… Continue reading Autumn

Building Bridges

There’s a tear in my heart I can’t fix. There’s a hole he made you can’t fill. There’s something broken I can't mend. There are stitches in my heart, you helped sew them. There's a bridge over the gaps, you helped build. There's a plaster over my wounds, that's healing thanks to you.

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Music (flash fiction)

I'M back! After a nice, well-rested break in Verona, I'm back on this 30-Day Gratitude Challenge and taking stock of the important things in life. Like wine. And pizza. Anyhoo, today's prompt is music and so I decided to do something a little bit different. I've written a wee flash fiction about music and my… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Music (flash fiction)

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Laughter

IT’S all about laughter today - and the winner has to go to my best mate who told me she had read all the Shakespeare plays including “Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night and Midsummer Night Murders”. Aye, it’s a popular Shakespeare play that Midsummer Night Murders. 🤦‍♀️ All joking aside, they say laughter is the… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Laughter

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Memories

I WAS really struggling with the prompt for memories yesterday. I’m not someone who likes to dwell on the past too much, maybe because I have a few regrets, probably because I like to think I could have done things differently. Hindsight is 20/20, I know. But while the past might be something that’s difficult… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Memories

A Single Sock

SHE found it at the back of cupboard buried underneath an old jumper and some old tights with a hole in them. It's bright pink colour shone brightly underneath grey wool, and she released a sigh as she pried the single sock free from its dark grasp. She'd been looking for this sock for months… Continue reading A Single Sock

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

THE subway rumbled with intent. It had a direction and a purpose, something that she lacked. She sighed, gaze lifting briefly from the phone in her hands to the teen sitting across from her, books spread across his lap. Studying at the last moment no doubt. His eyes were bleary, hands raising every now and… Continue reading Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

Tattoo

He scratched his arm lazily. His class was dragging by slowly, and he could already see the students losing interest in what he was trying to say. Gazes were shifting towards the clocks, chairs were swinging, and a few phones were already peering out from underneath tables. The students still hadn't realised he could see… Continue reading Tattoo
