Big Changes

In my last post, I hinted at changes in the arrangements with Barely Husband regarding Raven. They were a possibility then but guess what? They will happen. While he was waiting for the electrician to inspect the house, he received a call from a recruiter about a job where I live. An interview was arranged…

Technical Help

I have been receiving a ton of notification emails telling me of people who are supposedly following my blog. They would be email followers, not WordPress followers. The problem is, all are Outlook.com accounts and I can’t find them listed as followers anywhere. Is this a glitch? A virus? Some sort of scam? I have…

Attachment

When Barely Husband and Raven arrived Thursday night, they came to mine. BH had agreed to be at the house for one of the million inspections the buyer has requested. Previously, I had taken time off work or kindly asked my sweet and retired neighbours to be there. He lives an hour away so it’s…

Improvement

Raven is back tonight!!! Sometime in the middle of the night, that is. I miss her. It’s good to spend a few days apart. It gives us both breathing space but we are cooler together. We’ve been talking while she’s enjoying the much better weather in Spain. She had a good time. Much better than…

Last Night

Last night, as you already know, I was home alone, sipping red wine and writing a sex scene for my new story. It doesn’t take a genius to imagine I was horny. I am a very sexual person and I haven’t had any action in over a year (not couting the artificial action I often…

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all believers and happy holiday to the rest. I spent the day alone after dropping Raven at her dad’s yesterday. They are somewhere in Barcelona today. I can’t complain. In my humbler plans for her next week, we’re going to Anime Con in Manchester on Sunday/Monday and London on Thursday /Friday. She…

#MeToo – Assessment and Inspiration

Anyone with internet will have heard of the #MeToo movement created a few months ago to shed light on sexual abuse. It all started with Harvey Weinstein’s scandal and spread throughout the industry in Hollywood and reached us commoners. Many women shared their stories – ranging from uncomfortable requests, through narrow escapes to full on…

Stray Memory

It’s funny how, occasionally, old things you had completely forgotten about simply pop into your mind. This memory came back to me today. It was 2006 and we were in a family gathering. Barely husband, a little Raven and I had gone to visit my dad’s side of the family across the country. We were…

Almost There

I apologise again for neglecting this blog. It feels that the better my life gets, the less I need to write. It is a good thing, I know. However, I can’t help but feel bad for abandoning a baby. This blog saved my sanity in the very least. The wonderful people here still keep me…

I BOUGHT A HOUSE

Finally! A new house come on the market Wednesday evening. I called to arrange a viewing first thing Thursday morning. The viewing was confirmed for the same day. Raven and I both loved it. We had a really good feeling about it. Today, I made an offer. I didn’t want to lose it. It was…

Great Weekend

Last weekend I had my long awaited girly time. My friends (still the Wattpad group) came to mine on Friday. We had a big scare with the huge amount of snow (for UK standards, which is very little for many countries) falling since Wednesday, traffic going mental and trains being cancelled. We spent 24 hours…

And He Still Needs Me

Now that the house is sold, barely husband and I have both been looking for a place. I know what I want, where I want it and I won’t be swayed. He said I was aiming too high. I don’t think so. I am not settling for the bare minimum. I don’t want a crammed…

Me Being Me

I have made no secret in this blog about my sexuality. For the newcomers, I identify as pansexual. I don’t have barriers regarding sexuality or gender when falling in love. In the big context, I am who I am and I just am. I love the person regardless, even if that means someone who will…

Anime Con

Last weekend Raven and I took a train to London to attend the Anime and Gaming convention. It is nerdy, quirky, a little wacko and lots of fun. She was Alice from Madness Returns and I was a modern day Assassin (yes, I mean Assassins Creed). Under my hoodie was a Tokyo Ghoul t-shirt I…

Happy Valentine’s Day

It is a nice day. I enjoy doing something special on Valentine’s day. As a typical Taurus, my perfect date would most likely consist of tasty food and a good amount of alcohol while talking looking into the loved one’s eyes. I honestly don’t need much more than that. Well, add great sex afterwards and…

Recovery

The hectic schedule of the past couple of weeks has caught up with me. I had a sore throat. Twice. I’m still feeling congested and that brings migraines. Ugh! Still, I powered through work. I have a job to do and I will finish it. I’m almost there. I said this before but a meeting…

Dick is Back

And I hate it! Barely husband has been really nice to me so he has to be a cunt to Raven. Pardon my English but dick is not enough. Raven had her first agent audition on Sunday. It was close to his place so it made total sense that he would take her. He suggested…

Mortgage Deal or No Deal

With the house being on the market for almost 8 months and Barely Husband having to renew his rental agreement yet again (it’s every 6 months), he came up with the solution of passing the mortgage to my sole name to free up his credit to buy a property. A one bedroom flat is not…

Apology

Hello lovely readers, I know I have neglected this blog for the past couple of weeks. I’m working on the launch of a new product at work and it’s been hectic. It’s nonstop all day, every day. By the time I get home, I’m exhausted. The writing I often sneak in during my lunch break…

Here is my interview with Elle M Thomas

Originally posted on authorsinterviews:
Hello and welcome to my blog, Author Interviews. My name is Fiona Mcvie. Β  Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we? Tell us your name. What is your age? I write under the pen name of Elle M Thomas and I am almost 50. Fiona: Where are you from? I…

My Life as a Comedy

I had this thought on Saturday when a lot went wrong in the morning. It wasn’t anything horrific, reason why I could see the funny side. It was a sequence of crappy stuff that piles up. First, some background: Barely husband sold his car in December ‘because he doesn’t need it.’ He walks to work,…

The Lost Suitcase

Raven’s lost suitcase has been found. We got it back this weekend.  Thank you everyone for crossing your fingers. 🀞🏼🀞🏼🀞🏼

Future

I am positive. I have a good feeling about my future prospects, even if they may take a while to become true. If you’ve been following my blog, you will know that, back in May, I had a Tarot reading done. That reading was very positive but the span for things to happen, as I…

Online Dating

This has become my fun lately. I went through a few sites and Apps, not hoping to find anyone, to be honest. I have taken to creating profiles and checking the neighbourhood. What I find only reinforces my idea that these are full of people just looking for a quickie.  Still, after a few glasses…

A Little Naughty Fun

Soooooo, Raven and I were having a little fun last night and, I’m not entirely sure how, we came up with the idea of me creating a dating profile using the App Barely Husband registered with (the one she found by accident) to find him there (just to see it, no action). I created the…

Lessons

There are lessons we have to learn as life teaches them. While Raven was away with her dad, in a deeply Catholic and Evangelical country, she felt in her skin what I had told her about my upbringing.  My sexuality was not welcome.  She asked a few random questions to people who would have been…

She’s Back!Β 

Raven is back! She arrived on Sunday afternoon, tired and without luggage. It got lost in the connection. It didn’t matter. She ran to me and hugged me. She said she missed me and didn’t even try to pretend she didn’t want cuddles like teenagers often do.  She has a lot of stories from her…

Meh Week

I am officially calling the week after the holidays ‘Meh Week’. Going back to work was meh. I wished I could have taken another week off. Me and probably 90% of the world population. The other 10% actually did. Never mind my unofficial stats… I was sulking all Tuesday and getting back into the rhythm…

New Year’s Day

I’m starting 2018 with something I love – music – from a band I love – Pentatonix. This song is one of my favourites. It is upbeat and encourages us to move forward, forget the past or laugh at the bad times. It speaks of friendship, of being there for and caring for each other….

Happy New Year

2017 was hard. There’s no way around it. However, as I ponder and compare how I felt at the end of 2016 to how I feel now, I am in a much better place. 2016 ended with fights and divorce threats from barely husband’s side. 2017 started with my decision to end our marriage.  It…
