Clip ‘n’ Climb!

Yesterday I finally managed to cross another item off of that bucket list! You may remember back in 2017 I wrote a bucket list, because I decided that if I wrote down all of the random things "I would like to do one day" then I might actually get out there and do some of... Continue Reading →


Wobble of Self Worth

I'm having a wobble of Self worth again... Having been fighting a bug all week, hang on, actually only since Wednesday, though it feels so much longer. Getting ill on top of my M.E. always sends me into a spiral of self doubt, and leaves me fed up not only about being unwell but about... Continue Reading →

New Year, New You?

Tis the season for re-evaluating life, figuring out what is important and if/how things need to change. I have just had possibly the busiest December since I stopped working pantomimes. Looking back it is mostly a blur and I now feel worse than I have in months. To the extent that during December many old... Continue Reading →
