i’m back

I haven’t been anywhere but I haven’t been here either.  Is that because of a lack of motivation?  Laziness?  Boredom?  Lost of enthusiasm for blogging?  I’m not sure of the reason – maybe one of the aforementioned, maybe all of them, maybe none.

So, whatever, what exciting things have I been up to then?  Not much is the answer. I’m sure you were all expecting that as well.

Why am I here now?  There has to be a reason right?  There’s a reason for everything and the reason I present to you now is that I currently can’t sleep so ...

do you ever wonder…?

The photos of the snow are of no relevance to the text, so if it’s a snow story you’re after, turn back now.  I just felt I needed to try and make my words a little less soul destroying.

What you are doing with your life?  I’m sick of that question!  It seems to be everyones favourite thing to ask at the moment.  Everyone defines themselves by the job they do and I just find that so depressing.  More depressing than that though is that I do it as well!  I hate being asked what I do but I invariably ...

We went to see the ...

15 minute time-slots

I’ve discovered a way that stops me being so lazy.  I’m not sure I came up with this myself, as it seems too clever.  I feel like I’ve read it somewhere, it’s swished about in my brain for who knows how long and then one day I feel like I’ve had an idea but it’s not really my idea.  Who knows?  If you do, please let me know so I can pass on the credit.

(The photo of the trees is supposed to represent the tangled woods we wander, trying to find our way in life – I know, I ...

new year, new me: roasted pumpkin seeds



happy new year!

Is it a bit redundant to claim that with the start of a new year, I’m going to keep a more steady schedule with blogging given that it’s already the 15th January and this is my first post?  I’m not sure.

Well, to start us off, let’s not have a blog post about what I’ve been up to, I’m going to keep you on tenterhooks for that.  No, let’s go right in with a post on pumpkin seeds and eating them.
