Charity Event: progress

I am only getting started with regard to trying to get donations for the event, but I have a feeling it will be very similar to the process an author goes through when submitting work to an agent/publisher. First, you are cautiously optimistic. Then you send off your work/letter, and the doubt sets in. Then… Read more »

Charity Event: Marie Curie

I’m in the early stages of co-organising a charity event to raise funds for Marie Curie. We’re looking at a quiz, an unusual raffle and other family favourites such as the much-loved Tombola and Name-A-Bear. Sounds good so far? Well, as well as quiz entry, we’re hoping to include a buffet in with the ticket… Read more »

It wasn't me, guv'nor!

I opened my email yesterday to find almost 500 messages. I know my site isn’t that popular, so was a bit perplexed until I started reading them – all were returned or undelivered mail referring to messages I had never sent. I contacted the nice web lady in a panic and she told me that… Read more »

Have a little time on your hands?

Why not invest it in Timebank? I have a LOT of time on my hands, as you know, and much of it is wasted in front of the TV. I decided that I wanted to feel a little more useful, and wondered if I could volunteer. I made some enquiries and, obviously, it’s hard to… Read more »

Everybody Needs Good Neighbours!

That excludes me from most competitions of this nature, which is a shame. I can see the point of this with respect to novels and the like, but… Read more »

Things to do!

As you’ve noticed, I haven’t checked in here in a while – not because I’m no longer interested in blogging, but because I’d expected the site to disappear (as mentioned previously). Today, however, I’ve decided to spend the day trying to catch up on loose ends, including all the little bits and bobs I know… Read more »

Books, books, books.

>мебели сливен been reading a LOT of books lately (almost one per day) and I’ve enjoyed every one of them. Books are a great way to occupy the mind and imagination, but I won’t be able to continue at this pace, as I can’t afford it! I don’t review books, as I worry about giving… Read more »

2008: A Review

I usually do this on the 31st December, but I gave in to the lethargy which has plagued me since Boxing Day and spent most of the day in bed! I’d like to make the most of this Blog in case it disappears soon. Prior to writing this post, I took a look back at… Read more »
