The hell is a Cruffin?

A day in the life. Today we went jumped in the car and went through to a crappy little shopping centre that you can literally Circle in 10 minutes. It’s tiny and there isn’t much there. So we wandered around the shops a few times then we met with one of my friends had a…

Hi

Dead End

It was a dark time, Life was overwhelming, There was nothing to keep going for, There was nothing but darkness, The light had faded from life, There was a void in my soul filled with nothing but strife, The job was sucking the life out of me, I couldn’t take much more, Everything was at…

Just out of reach (50-word story)

“If I can make it to the bridge I’ll be safe” he pants. The sound of horses coming up from behind getting louder. He can see the bridge is in sight, safety is in reach. The horde gets closer to him, and just as he lunges, the sword decapitates him.

We are our stories

Everyone has a story to tell, Some are epic some are simple, We all want our story to be known, Even if it’s just to those we love, Most keep them to themselves, Others shout it from the rooftops, No matter how you handle your story, It’s personal to you, Some won’t care, Some will…

Things not to do

Number 1: When someone is having a bad day or a rant do not, I repeat, DO NOT, tell that person to “chill” all you are going to do by saying this is make them even angrier. Number 2: When someone is talking to you and saying about something that they are struggling with do…

So, when I finally am allowed to go to bed I GET AN HOUR AND A HALF SLEEP IF I’M LUCKY, before she’s up again….

Frist Chapter of a Second book

Hey everyone, Hope your day is going well. I was looking through my memory stick tonight, and I found this, it is the start of a second book that I started about a year ago and never finished. I have the idea for the full story in my head but was suffering from a severe…

Crushing Your Dreams 

Running for our lives, We make our way around the track, Just as we hit our stride, We take the time to glance back, The finish line is in sight, There is nothing in our way, It’s a Peculiar feeling, We are about to win, When the fucking blue shell, Blows our chances to hell.

Messed up dreams

My head is messed up. Recently I haven’t been sleeping well, tossing and turning, waking up every hour or so and that’s not just when my little monster is wanting to be fed in the middle of the night. And then there are the dreams. I have been having some really messed up dreams lately…

The Wizerding World, and my place in it

Over the last few days, I have been trying to find things to keep me occupied when the little one is away at the childminders. (being unemployed sucks) So one of the things I found yesterday was the website Pottermore, which is the site run by JK Rowling and is all about the Wizarding world…

Writing Group.

A few weeks ago, I put up a post about Writing groups and asking if they were any good. Last night I took the chance and went along to one. It was a strange experience, and I am not 100% sure if I am going to stick it out, but I went along to see…

Fortune?

Waving hello

I just wanted to share this since it’s really cute. This was on Friday morning when I fed the little one and she started waving saying “dadadadadadada” Don’t know why it’s slightly out of sync. Apologies for that.

This is a personal post

Before you read this post, I want to say that this isn’t my usual fun post, it’s not a story, poem or anything irreverent. It is an intensely personal post about something that I have to get off my chest, its something that has been bothering me for a while and today it has come…

Sleep

Sleep is fleeting, It let’s you flee from the dark, But you need the dark to sleep, Sleep is the one thing we all need, But most don’t get enough. We shroud ourselves in lies, Hiding from the dark, The light is there to protect us, But it also illuminates our fears. I hover in…

All Love Stories Must End

Falling apart afterwards is the hardest part, You have to pull yourself back together, But how can you do that with a broken heart? How can you do that when the light in your life is gone? My soul is broken, My heart has shattered into pieces, The love that was once there is now…
