I want to shout out Happy International Women's day like everyone else, but to be honest.. I'm not happy about it! Women's day! I think about that a lot, that we still need a 'day' for so many issues that really, by now, shouldn't require any special announcement of existence.

Thought I'd give it a couple of days before finding my way over here, let you all deal with the hangovers first!! It was a quiet one for me (I say that as though any other year is different!!, Its not haha) I managed to stay up past midnight this time though, so that was… Continue reading Happy New Year

But, I challenged myself to give… Continue reading The Doll Maker

Because he didn't mean anything by it? He was just having a laugh, right? Don't take any notice of him? These… Continue reading Me too: An Awakening
So, October is Coming Out Month! In the USA... In the UK it's not until February. But it got me thinking about my own coming out. I'd love to say it was exciting. A large banner from an aeroplane as it glided above my parent's house during a family BBQ! An entire page ad in… Continue reading Coming OUT!
So, as I lie in my bed; laptop actually on my lap, gazing out of the window at the clouds drifting in across the bay of Naples, I realise that I am ready to come home. It's been lovely. I have spent time relaxing, sunning myself and eating far too much. I even managed to… Continue reading Lazy days and sunny rays
