The spider and the small talk.

The spider and the small talk.

I wondered if the spider had done this trapeze act on purpose and that’s how they travel about, like really tiny Tarzans. Normally I would be straight on google to find out if this spider was a seasoned voyager or some sort of maverick experimenting with migration but ever weary of the school safe guarding rules I refrained and just stayed with the question.

I found some words.

I found some words.

  I’m back!!  I’m grateful to be sitting here writing this, the whirl of the washing machine to the left of me and a podcast on the black death to the right. I’m grateful because I finally have some words to type. For months every attempt to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard in this case has felt laboured and dull. But they’re back, my words have returned!! I’m pretty sure it’s because life doesn’t feel hectic, obviously with Mr Fish starting school in September this will change and I’ll be plunged into excessive routine and painful playground...

And here.

And here.

  Hello     So, it didn't quite go to plan. I’m trying to down play it because it all went to shit. This summer has been hell, or at least I imagine that’s what hell is like.

Twice in one week! It’s hard for people to know how brilliant I am. I think I’m a genius but because I don’t talk to many people, it’s tricky to have that verified. I’m not always comfortable engaging people and that’s what I need to change because my research suggests that’s what I need to be doing to grow my business. I’m starting to feel slightly stuck. I want my professional progress to happen faster, I’ve never been good at waiting.  I have few responsibilities that also require attention. A three-year-old and running a home and add in the Asperger’s,...

Collector of bits of things.

Collector of bits of things.

  I always try to take on advice when it’s offered, and I asked for it, if I haven’t asked then I’ll probably just be aggravated by it.  A couple of weeks ago I received some advice from someone who doesn’t know how wonderful they are. They said “just try” it’s so simple but so powerful. I think everyone would take it to mean different things. For me “just try” means test the waters, it means I don’t have to commit to an idea or plan, but it might not be awful. It means stop the bullshit, it means what...
