    The Journey Continues

    Thanks for joining me! Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton I’ve been trying to get this blog going for ages.   I keep an ideas log where I have been trying out all the things I might write about.  The main thing is that I don’t want this to be a depressing place…

    Two things I struggle with every day

    But I think I may have found the answer The other evening I was in bed with my iPad in front of me.  If I take it to bed with me when I go at 6pm, which is not often, it’s because I’m playing a game or listening to my audio book, or more often than not both.  This is…

    Does a good morning routine make you a better blogger?

    And does it contribute to being successful? I’ve just read an article written by a successful blogger interviewing other successful bloggers about their morning routine and how it contributes to their productivity during the day. In every single one of the six interviews I read, no matter when they woke up, no matter what time of the morning, be it…

    How Small Things Can Sometimes Be Huge

    And how it can make a difference In my life the smallest things can make the biggest difference.  Today my senior carer told me that are putting time in my care plan to wash my hair once a week.  This has made my day.  It’s a relatively unimportant thing in the grand scheme of things at the moment but for…

    Why am I so distracted again

    I am procrastination personified Photo by Patrick Tomasso on Unsplash I’m fed up with my lack of focus, concentration, my procrastination and, worst of all, my tendency to be distracted. Somehow my writing has become something to be avoided. How bad is that?  I love writing. But I realise I’m trying to write in a style that’s not mine. I…

    I’ve changed everything here

    And it’s really hard work Just a short post today my friends. Since my last post I have been moving my blog to WordPress.org and setting up my own self-hosted blog site. It really is hard work especially for a non-techie like me. As a result my page looks a bit strange. I think it’s going to be a while…

    What my Blog means to me

    It’s all about community It’s a bad MS day today – aches and pains, tired and depressed blah blah! I can’t tell if it’s stress at the current situation we’re all in or just a normal day in the life of an MSer. It is all very depressing. I miss my family, my friends and even the noise outside. It’s…

    How To Get Something Positive from Isolation

    It doesn’t have to be too difficult I suppose isolation for me is not so different from my every day, as I don’t get out much anyway, at least not in the Winter. I cannot tolerate the cold.

    Why do I think of myself as not normal

    And does it really matter? I love watching travel and wildlife programmes. I find them quite peaceful and easy to watch, especially before going to sleep. The cinematography is stunning. They inspire me to want to see these places and things for myself. I am thinking about things I would like to be doing or things I wish I could…

    Writing a blog is my grown-up project

    And it means a lot to me Talent comes from originality which has a special manner of thinking of seeing of understanding and of judging. Guy de Maupassant, Pierre et Jean I recently read some blogging tips. The advice was ‘start with a small project’. It made me think. What is a small project? Does it mean writing a short…
