Posted on Sun, 09 Aug 2015

I am 41 and I'm crying because I can't concentrate enough to write and this is really good and catchy and true. If only there were no more reasons to cry after seventeen!

Posted on Sun, 01 Apr 2018

This made me laugh a lot! I can't decided which one applies to me, I think we're all in there somewhere. If the prayers said in church were anything like this the churches would be full again and you would have saved the church of England.

I love the way you've mashed

Posted on Fri, 09 Mar 2018

I love the way you've mashed up the man-made and mundane with nature where there's always something fresh and beautiful when you look for it. Like one of those mixed media collages with bits of plastic and leaf skeletons, feathers and bottle tops...

You've illustrated the terror

Posted on Fri, 02 Mar 2018

You've illustrated the terror of losing control of your faculties here, like files all stored neatly in your head suddenly scattered in disarray. The frustrating thing is you know it's there but you cannot access it. I've no experience of...

Posted on Thu, 01 Mar 2018

This is such a charming tribute to dogs and their childish, eager to please characters. Where would we be without our furry friends, they give so much without all the heavy stuff which humans emit.

Posted on Sat, 24 Feb 2018

This makes me cringe, such an accurate depiction. There was a stalwart of these types near me. I recall one woman talking about a couple with a child in the same year as ours, he worked in Tesco, she worked as a 'lunchtime controller' she...

Posted on Wed, 14 Feb 2018

I like how clean this is, how precise, no messing about. Life is all it can be, you can't say that too often, that's a rare moment to be cherished.

Posted on Sun, 21 Jan 2018

I've been vegetarian since I was a young child, nobody else in my family is and I was always singled out for people awkward. It always amazes me the abuse you get for not eating meat, it must be worse if you're vegan. I've never tried to enforce...
