Waiting for the band to start

For a number of years, I’ve enjoyed gigging on my own. Solo. Yes – a woman on her own doing something for herself that she enjoys. You would not believe the number of people who look at me surprised when I tell them this. (I also go to the cinema on my own – I know, what a *weirdo*). I realised a number of years back that if I spent my life waiting for other people to join me in activities I enjoyed doing that’s all I’d spend my life doing….waiting. I got bored of waiting, so I started living. As with all things in life, you have to be sensible and take precautions. No, I don’t mean pepper spray but trust your gut instinct and avoid any strange looking people who are staring at you (that’s another story for another day). So, if you ever spot me about, having a drink and waiting for the band to start, say hi. We might have some amazing stories to share 🙂

Me and My Boys

What can I say? I guess I was in a ‘Festive Gangsta’ mood when I did this photo. It clearly shows that I fail at doing *anything* in a credibly sinister way; even when I’m trying to look rough, I can hear you saying “awww isn’t she cute? coochie coo!” Pfft. Me and my boys are gonna rough you up. Make you eat yellow snow. Generally do nasty stuff, like make you tea without any sugar in it. Because we’re mean….and nasty 😉

Card Games

All card games are games of chance, one way or another. There’s always an element of probability involved as you shuffle and cut the deck. Then you begin to play. You may win. You may lose. You may become frustrated and stop. But, you always play. That’s the key thing. You take that chance. You run that risk of failure to try and succeed. I read a brilliant quote yesterday “be brave enough to fail at something new”. It resonated because failure is a temporary state if you keep trying, but if you don’t try then it becomes permanent. Don’t let that fear control who you are. Play the game. Be brave. Embrace what comes your way and live ❤

Autumn Leaves

All the changing colours of the leaves, they remind me that while the nights draw in and the cold is around us, Spring will be here soon enough. It’ll be warm again. This is just transitional and we’ve survived it before. We can do this again 🙂

Wanna come a’knocking?

Ohhh how enticing that offer sounds! Especially as I have cookies to offer. Or, do I because it looks like I’m about to scoff the lot. While I hate the weather changes that are all around us at the moment, one thing I do enjoy during Autumn are the seasonal colour changes we experience. We move into yellows, oranges, rusts and they’re colours I’ve recently fallen in love with. As a traditional pinks/purples girl, Earth tones never featured on my radar but now I look forward to seeing them everywhere. I don’t know if this is a sign of maturity (I hope not!) as I read somewhere that the colours you’re attracted to denote personality traits, but who knows? For the moment, I’m just happy to enjoy the season and munch on these cookies.

Caffeine and Chaos

We’ve all had those moments, haven’t we? When we’re full with a full mental tank of caffeine and up for some mischief. It’s the calm before the storm. The moment before the chaos commences. What fun! *cracks my knuckles* Let’s see what the day brings 😉
