Happy Thanksgiving 

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK for obvious reasons, however, as most of my readers are from the US, I thought I should join in the celebration. There are many things I am thankful for, even after a very difficult couple of years. My daughter is number one on this list, of course. She’s…

Out and About 

I was out with Raven last night. We went to our favourite Tapas bar and spent the evening crushing on the three gorgeous waiters. They are too young for me and too old for her. Still, there’s no harm in looking, is there? I have big plans for the next couple of weekends. Next weekend…

FICTION X REALITY

This weekend, my first Wattpad story, Make Love Your Goal, reached 14K reads.  I’m already publishing chapter 10 of my second story, See You Again, but because MLYG is so personal and special to me, I had to revisit the characters and write a special chapter. I named it Six Years Later and allowed myself…

Back to Reality…

…And it sucks! I came back from my wonderful holiday to a week of total chaos and utter hell at work. Wow. I hate when I get so exhausted that I start making stupid mistakes. My brain was all fuzzy, my brain cells completely fried and, by Friday, I wasn’t thinking anymore. I hate that…

Writing Milestone

This weekend I have finished writing my first Wattpad book. It has been a very long journey, a labour of love, writing a story with a theme so special and important to me. ‘Make Love Your Goal’ has kept me sane in many ways. I could put all my feelings of love and acceptance of the LGBTQ+…

Wonderful Weekend

My weekend started with something that could have totally ruined it: an argument with barely husband.  He was questioning me regarding any additional requirements that may block the house sale. Stupid, as I made it clear that I want the house sold and our finances completely separate as soon as possible.  True to my new…

Girly Weekend

This weekend I am meeting my Wattpad friends again. Our friendship has been going strong since we started chatting after finding a common interest: writing. The four of us are completely different but there is a lot of respect for each other and our sense of humour never fails. We pick each other up and no…

Happy Blogversary! 

Yesterday, as I published my latest post, I received the following notification: Wow! A year has passed and so much has changed!  I started blogging in a moment of complete desperation, anxiety and feeling lost. My marriage was in ruins and the attempts to fix it only made it worse.  I was trying but I…

PONDERING

I always tend to go back and analyse things, be it what I write in my posts or what happens in my daily life. I was very excited before the weekend started. A last minute cancellation gave me an early start to my tattoo, Raven and I had been enjoying the week off at home…

Bucket List Update

I am making very good progress on my bucket list and I am happier because of it. Some things are out of my hands, like the sale of ‘our’ house. I need my share of the money to buy mine. The house is up for sale, had viewings and almost 60 clicks on the virtual…

Writing Milestone 

I usually post milestones for my Wattpad work but today I want to share two blog milestones for my ‘Diary of a Failed Marriage.’  Earlier this week this happened:  And today this happened : When I started writing, all I wanted was an outlet. I wondered if anyone would ever want to read about a…

MANCHESTER IS LOVE

MANCHESTER IS A PLACE OF LOVE I was very lucky to spend the most wonderful three years there while going to University. There, I was integrated in a world that saw no boundaries for love. Students of all backgrounds, religious beliefs and sexual orientations lived and worked in harmony. Manchester was where I discovered myself…
