This is such a charming

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...

I love the way you've knitted

Posted on Tue, 09 Jan 2018

I love the way you've knitted all this together, old and new threads woven to create something beautiful, interesting, slightly psychodelic but altogether real. I will take some time to listen to the song.

Posted on Sat, 09 Sep 2017

I enjoyed this. Those starlings though, it seems cruel doesn't it. As a human you just can't get away with gatoring, people always expect a smile and small talk. I really like your style of writing.

Posted on Sun, 20 Aug 2017

This was a really interesting read and refreshing. I spent some time living in Devon and I must say my heart broke a little when I left. When is something as unspeakable as the holocaust and other horrific war incidents truly dealt with? As long...
