Hello, this is a new URL

You’re here because you followed the link from ‘starshipteapot’ – thanks for sticking with me regular readers. Hello anyone visiting. Title is temporary as I was having a giggle with a friend about that stage direction (from ‘Winter’s Tale’) recently and it’s been my default comment for the last few days, sorry ’bout that πŸ˜›

May as well give you an update…!

NaNoWrimo – officially abandoned. I don’t have time, also I’m not fantastic at working under pressure. I will continue to work on both my stories though and it has encouraged me to continue with the sitcom I started planning a few years ago.

Getting Fit/Weight Loss – I’ve lost 6lbs, which feels like a good start. The swimming is going well, I purchased a (second hand) PoolMate so can keep track of the number of laps & stroke count. Should be fun (I like data). Incidentally, if anyone wants to add me as a friend on FitBit, you can do so here

Photography – got chatting to the theatre photographer the other day. I showed him some of my photos and he was impressed. It was a nice ego boost. just chatting about it reminded me how much I enjoy getting out and about with my camera. I think this can tie in quite nicely with my getting fit plans as I can go for walks with my camera.


Well, it’s been some time

Not so long ago I intended to do regular things with this blog, like review the books I’d read and that sort of thing. At some point I will post the stories I wrote as part of my creative writing module as…well, why not? I posted my spooky story awhile back and I’ve been thinking about going back to it as while writing I was restricted by the word-count and based on my tutors feedback and other comments there was a lot more I could have done with it.

The good news is that after several months of casual & cover work, I’m now back into full time work as I start on a new show on Friday. I my OU module starts very shortly so I’m doing my best to get as much as the reading done. Struggling quite spectacularly with ‘Dombey & Son’, I am not a Dickens fan (although I do think the opening of ‘A Christmas Carol’ is one of the best openings to a story).

Anyway this is a bit of a non-entry, just a sort of “still alive” as I try to figure out what I want to do with this blog.
