I’m Promising Nothing

January is what it is. In the colder parts of the temperate world not only does it bring a post Xmas crash, and a slew of resolutions that are destined to be broken, but also it is the coldest time, and will still be dark in the afternoons. No one loves that, and people who … Continue reading I’m Promising Nothing

A Migraine, Some Shopping, Dog Pictures, Mortality, and Sauce

A bit of calm after the storm of migraine. I overdid it on the yoga and then there was a horrible migraine weather and between them they floored me. Not only was I migraining off my head, but also my feet, knees, and back were over-challenged from the yoga. Normally I know when to hold … Continue reading A Migraine, Some Shopping, Dog Pictures, Mortality, and Sauce

2013 and 376 with a cheeky appearance from 804

My brother is visiting from Delft. While it is arguable that giving crockery to someone who lives somewhere famous for pottery is a bit mental, I nevertheless popped in to the London Graphics Centre to grab a couple of these cheeky wee espresso cups for him. The orange is a lot gentler than the orange … Continue reading 2013 and 376 with a cheeky appearance from 804

Years ago, my friend Susan sent me this valentine card. It has to have been 1979 or 80 which is weird because I thought it was from some other time, a bit later, when we were flatmates in Edinburgh, but I read the back for the first time in ages while I was photographing it … Continue reading Oh no, love, you’re not alone – I didn’t get one either

Medication, Moderation, and Meditation – My Life With Invisible Illness

Yes, I had my moments, and yes there were some good times and no, I'm not saying my life … Continue reading Medication, Moderation, and Meditation – My Life With Invisible Illness

Breakfast of Champions – Referendum, Writing, and Travel

Yesterday I finally weighed in on the Independence debate. What do you mean, last minute? There is a WHOLE DAY to go yet! Anyway, I wrote about it on Facebook, and then on tumblr. Then, for good measure I copied it onto a site I'd not seen before, WriteHere.com which is easy to join and … Continue reading Breakfast of Champions – Referendum, Writing, and Travel

It may be Messy but I do it all for You

Made a little tumblr for ya, on elaine4queen.tumblr.com/day/2014/01/18 And I've been updating the Mnemonic Mujer┬áblog weekly, although it took a couple of go rounds to get it set for GMT, but I've done it now, and the next one will be Monday at 11.11am. Most pleasing. AND, and, I have made a MM tumblr to … Continue reading It may be Messy but I do it all for You
