This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

One Week On

One week since I started Blogging here.  So, what has happened?

Well, I am still a frustrated artist, when I see a lovely painting I wish I could paint.  I've seen works by photographers that make me want to spend months out with my camera.  So what can I do?

Well, it seems I can write.  I feel a bit bemused by this as, compared with the work of others I read, I use words with all the delicacy of a sledgehammer.  I spent my final two years of English Language and literature studies having my work thrown back at me with large F's scrawled on it.  My art mistress regularly told me I was as artistic as a block of steel and had all the imagination of a rhino.  Still, people seem to like what I write now so I will carry on.

I have learned that I am very impatient.  Why must my friends live in different time zones?  I don't want to have to wait for their day to start.  I want to shake them awake and say 'Look what I've done!'  As for waiting for feedback.  Read it now world, tell me instantly!  Oh dear.

Ah well, I am back at work Tomorrow, maybe I can be a little more patient when I am out for 8 hours a day.


Anyway, a huge THANK YOU to all you readers and commenters.  I welcome you all and am so glad you feel inclined to drop by.  I hope I continue to provide some entertainment.


  1. You may be patient but I'm not - do I really have to wait that long for another instalment?

  2. I think every writer feels that way...trust me you do not write with the delicacy of a jackhammer!
