and Considerations

Showcase for my thoughts, general and specific

I’m a bit of a rambler – and not of the exercise persuasion.
I love words, and thoughts, and ideas.
I’m also very principled, my husband used to consider me a tad too principled, but now we realise it’s highly likely to be one of my autistic traits.

My blogs that you’ll find here are reflections on my life, my health, and my thoughts on matters around me. The rants are about much the same things, but less generously expressed. Sometimes you just have to say it like it is. There’ll also be reviews on books, gizmos, and gadgets that I’ve found useful for my physical, mental, and emotional well-being. I won’t put on here anything that I don’t own or use or have read. Promise. Otherwise it’s not a truthful review and that is absolutely pointless.

There will also be updates on what I’m discovering or doing to give something back to the environment – or just not taking anything away.


Mulling over News stories, commenting on health issues, and reflecting on social matters.


If I had a soapbox to hand this is where I’d pull it out and climb aboard.


My journey towards becoming more responsive to the needs of our planet.

Sport I won’t say I’m the least sporty person I know, but I’m come pretty close. Poor balance, problems with proprioception – basically that means I don’t ‘know’ where my body is in spatial terms, and hyper-mobility means team games are out.As for watching sport? Looking back, I’ve watched some ‘major’ events over the past…

Week Two: Setting off

This is the end of the second week of my new Open University studies. It has been fulfilling and enlightening. As all useful education should be. The Ups Spent some time wandering through the OU Library Service, made a few notes, then carried on with other things. Yesterday I did a general (Google) search on…

Challenge your Camera #7

Bridges To state that since humans were confronted by bodies of water there have been bridges is just a tad presumptuous. The animal world has been in the construction game for millennia, and in darker recesses there are probably plants, organisms and microbes doing exactly the same.From basic log structures, now rotted into the very…
