Farewell, Faithful Friend

Marmite, most beloved of hounds, has taken her last walk. She has been with me, faithful and true, for 13 yrs 7 months and I will miss her more than words can say. You were the best dog a girl could be blessed with, darling one, and you will live in my heart forever.  

Dobby is a Free Elf!

Or rather Carillion has made me redundant, so I am now a free human. I will miss my boss and colleagues terribly as not only were they great to work with but they believed in me at a time when I didn’t believe in myself and their confidence enabled me to find my self-confidence and … Continue reading Dobby is a Free Elf!

I still aten’t dead …

But the last eight months have been more exhausting than the previous two years and although the end is now near (there has to be a limit on how long employees can remain employed by an insolvent company) I still do not know exactly when it will be. Which means - since this level of … Continue reading I still aten’t dead …

Kizzia Quarterly Volume 2 – April to June 2017

I’m not going to talk much about the last quarter in this post. In fact I’m not going to talk much at all because with everything that’s going on at work and all the other things I’m trying to do at home, I’m pretty much terminally exhausted. So I’m giving you some pictures instead, of … Continue reading Kizzia Quarterly Volume 2 – April to June 2017

Kizzia Quarterly – Vol 1 – Winter/Spring 2017

It is now almost the end of May and this is less of a quarterly and more of a half-ly (if Shakespeare was allowed to make up words, I am too) but I’m not going to let that put me off sharing it with you! I should first say that I wrote most of this … Continue reading Kizzia Quarterly – Vol 1 – Winter/Spring 2017

I Aten’t Dead

I’ve just been swallowed by work and the house, getting poorly, having a tooth out, doing all the visiting of family, and reading and writing that hasn’t included any bloggable content for a while. So my apologies for that!  I can’t, however, promise much of an uptick in the blogging stakes over the next 18 … Continue reading I Aten’t Dead

Monthly Musings for December or "Where has the year gone?"

How in the heck can it be 21st December already? Who stole my year? Come on, own up, I promise not to be too hard on you … Oh wait, I remember, I stole all my own time with studying and work and generally trying to do ALL THE THINGS.  And I have done a … Continue reading Monthly Musings for December or "Where has the year gone?"

Having said I shall be posting Monthly Musings, the question remains: On what should I muse?

And this is the question I am asking you, dear readers. I will continue to share a bit about what I’ve been up to in the monthly post but, on reflection, I've realised that I’d like the main part of the post to be a bit more interesting. I’m aiming for it to be a little … Continue reading Having said I shall be posting Monthly Musings, the question remains: On what should I muse?

Words from the Week, otherwise known as the one where I shout hurrah!

Yes, hurrah! Really quite loudly.This is because yesterday, after a rather long silence that I feared meant the worst, I found out that both requests I made back in December in respect of my job have been approved. I am therefore a proudly promoted person with a nice new job title and a respectable pay … Continue reading Words from the Week, otherwise known as the one where I shout hurrah!

Words from the Week , or “The one where I fall asleep on the keyboard”

This post is being brought to you by black coffee, the sugar rush provided by licking honey off a teaspoon, and the sheer bloody-minded ignoring of exhaustion. Changing the subject abruptly and completely, the office move has happened. This is, I have decided, a good thing. Not because I wanted to move but because it … Continue reading Words from the Week , or “The one where I fall asleep on the keyboard”
