    It’s Raining Men by Milly Johnson

    I received a copy of It’s Raining Men by Milly Johnson in exchange for an honest review. I’m using this review as my first in a new format. Here’s the synopsis: A summer getaway to remember. But is a holiday romance on the cards…? Best friends from work May, Lara and Clare are desperate for some time away. They have each had a rough time of it lately and need some serious R & R. So they set off to a luxurious spa for ten glorious days, but when they arrive at their destination, it seems it is not the place they thought it was. In fact, they appear to…

    Making a Difference

    I was rereading some old blog entries earlier. I was planning to write something (not this post) and I thought maybe I’d written about it last year. I didn’t find anything but what I did come across was this post. I thought it was kind of apt given a piece of news I received today. After three and a half months I finally received my new wheelchair cushion. It’s strange. It’s good and it’s comfy. But it almost feels off. This is set up differently to my old one and I’m not sure if that’s why (I have the stuff to change the set up to my old one if…

    Random Bullet Points of Health Related Life

    ♥ I still don’t have my new wheelchair cushion. I had my fitting appt at wheelchair services but that was the worlds biggest waste of time because they didn’t have it. The story is a bit more complicated then that and totally ridiculous as well as very badly handled. I made a complaint to PALS about that. It made me feel better if nothing else. ♥ I was diagnosed with anaemia about ten days ago. It was borderline but based on symptoms I’m being treated with ferrous fumarate (prescription strength iron supplements) three times a day for 8 weeks. I keep wanting to call it ferocious fumarate. Sophie said when…

    Writing Poetry

    Words flow from my fingers Rhythm and rhyme are acknowledged as important yet ignored Imagination and inspiration are the key Thinking too much will throw it off Inside I wonder if this will be any good Never quite convinced that Good will come from my words Poetry plagues me Overwhelmed with the need to write Extremely difficult to find the motivation Trying to do so more often Really trying Yet never quite doing

    Five minutes of writing thoughts

    So I decided to try a new thing. A five minute blog. I often don’t blog because I don’t think I have enough to say or enough time to write properly. So I figured I should stop using that as an excuse and write for just five minutes. What gets written gets written, and what doesn’t doesn’t. And it’s not abig deal. Allegedly. How it turns out in reality I couldn’t tell you. But hopefully it will mean I blog more often and that’s one of the goals I wanted to work on this month. I’m using write or die for ipad to write this, it’s ages since I’ve used…
