The Way I See It… (Beauty)

In my never-ending quest to make sense of a nonsensical world, this is the first post in what will be a series where I try to make logical and emotional sense of things that are viewed in myriad ways throughout the world. The topic of beauty is a contentious one. It’s said that beauty is … Continue reading The Way I See It… (Beauty)

Living the Dream Part 24 (Crutch)

For the first time in what feels like absolutely ages, I’m doing a LtD post about writing! *Faints* One thing that bugs me while I’m tapping away at my keys is always being conscious of shoehorning myself into a trap of word repetition. I absolutely hate it! If two consecutive sentences start with the same … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 24 (Crutch)

Social Media Share-a-thon

It occurred to me recently that I haven't shared my social media details on here in a long while, so I'm going to use up a whole post in order to put that right. Some sites I use more than others as you can probably imagine, but I'll never say no to new friends and/or … Continue reading Social Media Share-a-thon

Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

My latest offering in this series isn’t a very positive one. The prospect of worthlessness is very much a fact I’m having to face far more than I wish I had to. In recent times, my depression appears to have deepened. It’s deepened to a level I really hoped it wouldn’t. I don’t mean to … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

Five Things I Hate About Christmas

The old saying goes that there’s nothing as certain as death and taxes. In the modern western world, I think we can add Christmas to that list too. Once you hit October it consumes pretty much everything going forward from there. Weeks and weeks of preparation for one day. As a child, I loved Christmas. … Continue reading Five Things I Hate About Christmas

Review of Lucy Brazier’s Who Shot Tony Blair?

I’m really excited to be sitting down and writing this review because it gives me a great buzz to be reviewing the work of an indie author, fellow blogger, and friend. Yes, Lucy Brazier is one of many wonderful people I’ve happened across on my blogging travels (be sure to catch her excellent blog, Secret … Continue reading Review of Lucy Brazier’s Who Shot Tony Blair?

Living the Dream Part 22 (Doubt)

My schedule is all over the place right now thanks to a hectic Mental Health Awareness Month and a couple of hastily prepared posts in light of recent events. Not to worry though. Things are starting to ease their way back to something resembling normal now. Welcome to another edition of the series centred around … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 22 (Doubt)

Is Multiculturalism the Death of British Culture?

The UK in 2018 is a place of great variation. Walk into Manchester city centre and you’ll be greeted by an array of different faces, creeds, and colours; sights, sounds, and smells. It’s a very British city with a very multicultural heartbeat. There are street markets serving all kinds of food from around the world. … Continue reading Is Multiculturalism the Death of British Culture?
