Well they say you live and learn.


*checks pulse*


Yep. I can tick off the first one.


But learn… That one seems to be a little faulty. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – COMPUTERS ARE OUT TO GET ME. Always have done. Always will.


With Hubby’s help, I have managed to decorate the edges of my blog. This involved much bleeting on my part – and many mistakes *coughs* …on my part.

I have also been re- re- re- publishing my paperbacks which has been emotionally-draining as my beautifully-honed covers have been sucked into the system, never to be seen again. ‘Starting from scratch’ has now become my default and accepted state.


I don’t think I’ll be one of those clever people who decides to enhance their golden years by taking on another degree. I’ve even written down instructions how to work the TV.


Still, I should thank my lucky stars. There’s a lot to be said for being alive…

The tiniest detail can spark off an idea. I collect them, like butterflies. They can be strange or beautiful...and, as they flutter around, I pluck them out and use them to write. Sometimes they turn into poetry, sometimes into stories, but a lot of them have grown into something much bigger - books. I have not yet decided whether I am a children's or adults' author as I write for both. So, I'll just call myself a writer.

  1. You haven’t got a beard in your photo – do you shave or wax!
    As for living and learning – I’ve reached my allotted span, so that’s a plus, but the TV remains a mystery. I can kind of work it – when I’m allowed to hold the remote – but the DVD player still defeats me!

  2. In actual fact, Liz, I use a Black and Decker garden strimmer – but the less said about that, the better…

    I’ve come to the conclusion that my brain – much like my cupboards – is overstuffed. No room to get another thing in. Not even instructions for a cup-a-soup.

    And you’re allowed to hold the remote? *shakes head in disbelief*

    Long live liberation!
