One Month In

Been in the UK for a full month now. In the meantime we got a new place, I got a new job and just had my first covid jab. In the next few days we’ll be moving our stuff into the new place and settling in. It’s hard to believe that in just under a […]

Shiny new idea

Every once in a while I get an email about this one book cover designer creating new designs. So of course, I rush over and check it all out. There was this one image that captured me, but I didn’t buy it in time so it got snapped up by another. It was just a […]

Whirlwind few days

Not even a week into living in Edinburgh I have a job trial and fingers crossed I think it might be a deal. So the other night I was laying in bed thinking about how I’ve been a bit burnt out with writing. I had gone and looked at a website that creates pre-made book […]

10 days of isolation: Day 6

Day 6: The results from the covid rapid release didn’t arrive. In fact, the email to say that the tests have arrived at the facility haven;t arrived either. Not impressed.

10 days of isolation: day 5

The real day 5. I made shepherd’s pie, but I think it could have been better, though everyone loved it. Did some more cross stitch. I also spent most of my day experimenting with creating a journal on word. I’m thinking that maybe I could create a low content book and put it out there […]
