Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

Sunday Writing Prompt #225 – Know Thyself

For years I was a fraud. Pretending to be someone I wasn’t, liking things or people I didn’t, going with the flow because it was expected. It was easier to nod and accept rather than voice a contrary opinion and … Continue reading

How loud the silence.

Since moving here four weeks ago, the three of us have been sleeping more or less soundly. It is surprisingly quiet here, and should we wake in the early hours, unless Maggie has asked to go out, we simply roll … Continue reading
