Day 13 I end­ed today feel­ing as though I’d had no fun at all. Feel­ing more like a very poor slave in fact. No more to say about liv­ing in this coun­try except bit­ter words. Day 14 My day start­ed well – got called to my sub­sti­tute job at a lit­tle pre-school. Time to work […]

My youngest son came up with this the­o­ry. Life has­n’t been going too well for me so I’ve had to elim­i­nate neg­a­tive things (and some­times peo­ple!) that aren’t mak­ing a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to my life. He came up with “29 Days of Fun”. This month he’s been ask­ing me every day “What are you doing […]

Feb­ru­ary 15th actu­al­ly marked the one-year anniver­sary of start­ing this blog. I almost can’t believe I’ve made it this far. In some ways this year of writ­ing and post­ing has been ther­a­peu­tic. I have been job­less for 2 years now so I had to find a pur­pose. At least writ­ing every day has giv­en me […]
