Let The Wind Blow

It was upon us before we had time evacuate. The call had gone out on local radio that it was heading across our part of the country. I now felt I had wasted time fitting the storm shutters as I could see only a mile away the tight knit black clouds linked to the earth […]

7 Days In April ~ Day 4

I was recently asked by May Moore to take part in a project to support her upcoming online publication based on the diaries of 7 people in 7 days during the COVID-19 lock down. Never being one to keep a diary, I thought the exercise would be something new to try, and of course be […]

My Top 9 Non-Fiction Books

Sport For Fun (F4T Meme)

Dial 999

I was originally going to post this under the recent mental health meme for SB4MH, however, a collaboration post with May More placed this in the drafts box. The adaptation is close to me and therefore I felt it should see light. “Fire – I need to report, an incident.” That’s how the day ended, […]

Codependency

I somewhat feel like I have written about this topic many times, however, I know it is more likely I have played it in my head over and over again. I had an urge to start at the beginning, however, I know you are busy and really just need a nice short post to get […]

Pinned – For Better or for Worse

Pinned ~ This story is completely fiction and was written to meet the meme collaboration topic of co-dependency. I was asked by May More to pen the tale from the male character’s POV.  Once you have read this please check out her post here. Codependency is a behavioural condition in a relationship where one person enables […]
