Week in Review

What I’ve written this week

Sunday Cost of Living

My blog post with some tips on saving money, and some places to go for good advice.

Silhouette of a woman, with the caption: "She was just Adeline."

Monday Just Adeline

A short story about a person who can’t cope with the way life is and absolutely needs to change. Many people don’t understand.

Tuesday Siren Song

Some people can eat in their workplace without a problem. Selina really isn’t one of those people.

Drawing of a rainbow with a cloud at one end and a pot of gold at the other. Caption reads: "If there's gold at the end of the rainbow, I'll be at the other end."

Wednesday The End of the Rainbow

A poem about how some of us will never find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, despite our great ideas for what we could do with it.

Thursday At the End of the Day

At the end of the day, it’s always good to stop and reflect and put everything in perspective. But there are some things you shouldn’t put in your diary.

Friday A Knotty Problem

Princess Cat gives her opinion on grooming.

Pencil drawing of a ball of thread. Caption reads: "A ball of shining, golden, thread."

Saturday The Venomous Void Chapter Six

Wendy learns some useful information for her upcoming adventure, and some surprising information about her school principal.

What I’ve enjoyed reading this week

  • Ailish Sinclair’s photos and stories of Scottish Castles.
  • While I’m shivering in the cold, over in the northern half of the planet T. Maxwell-Harrison is writing about the Summer of ’22 .
  • Happiness is very much about attitude, but money also plays a part. You are happier if you can pay your bills without worrying. So research has been done to look at how much income continues to add to happiness, and where extra money doesn’t make people any happier. This article from Health looks at that issue.
  • And I’m still working through Discworld, and still enjoying it.
