I don't officially junk journal, but i put things that i want to keep (that other people would probably see as junk) in my journal. bits of wrapping paper, movie tickets, receipts, newspaper clippings, recipes from magazines, candy wrappers, dried flowers and leaves, etc etc etc. my journal is like the hub of my world. ha! it includes my calendar, all the junk, snippets of poems, fully formed poems, to-do lists, packing lists, prose when i just need to get something out of my head, things my boys say that i want to remember, etc. all the etc.  


Girrrl. This is the kind of journalling I can get behind. Mine is much the same. A bit recipe book. A bit arty. A bit full of doodles. A bit pressed flowers. A bit grimoire. A bit of a poem dump. Full of mementos. Gig streamers. Bus tickets.

I really love journalling recently. Itís such a great creative process.

Aah, thank you. Mine were manageable until about four years ago! At the moment I have four inhaled medications, nasal spray, eye drops, two antihistamines and just finished a week of prednisone. It did really work and knocked out the worst of them (for now) and then I got sick. Urgh!

you should see my kitchen journals. i have one for sweet and one for savory. you can see the evolution of the recipe in there. the pages are warped from spilled milk, egg white drips, water, flour and cornmeal getting stuck in the spine. i love them.

What an amazing heirloom to pass on though. Fantastic! I totally love when outside influences become part of the page. Thatís where the real story begins.

Sunday update: I baked a celebration cake today for my friendís birthday on Tuesday. I had to bake it twice because I came out of the bathroom to find my ninja cat had managed to break into the cupboard and was merrily noshing through the first one. Also managed to spill an entire bag of plain flour and a glass of water off the counter at the same time whilst I was sat on my stool to decorate my cake. Not gonna lie, the resulting paste across my lap looked a little bit like a wayward bukkake party with the pillsbury doughboy.

However, I managed to finish the damn cake. And now I need tea.

Ö and you? 🤣

I've been sick as a dog with a sinus infection, chest infection and double ear infection. I'm hopping mad about it, because of swimming. We managed to go out and have some fun on my birthday anyway, but the next few days were rough. Happily, I now have one sore ear instead of two, and a chest full of rubbish, but have perked up considerably. All I can say about it is that gymnastics should be available on prescription.

Ö not really any use for gymnastics right now, me. Though Iím not ruling out crutch pole vault as a future Olympic sport. 🤣

Hope you feel better soon!

HA! Well it's not as if I'm actually DOING any (smashed my elbow to bits years ago, can't put any weight on my left arm, thus even a handstand is now impossible) but I watch it every day. Plenty of stuff from the Europeans to watch right now!

Crutch pole vault would be cool! We could also take part in: synchronised swearing, synchronised falling over, the walking stick toss, the 10 metre hobble and open water floating.

How about urban skiing. Get my crutches, tie a few bin lids to our feet and find the nearest skate ramp. I feel crutch javelin would also be a good choice.

Urban skiing would be amazing, but we both know it would result in serious injury!

It might Ellie but you are not Gwyneth Paltrow, so, touch wood, you should be okay & I'm sure you would have followed the safety guidance. 🤣

I have a job interview tomorrow, for something I've wanted for DECADES. I'm terrified. Not of the interview (and example lesson), but of the fallout if I don't get it.

Best of luck to you! Hope it goes well.

Iíve just been for a pub lunch with the other half. Had an extremely lovely mixed bean burger. Was slightly surreal when the bloody U.K. Government threat to life tester alarm went off half way through that I completely forgot about after just putting a fork full of guacamole in my mouth. I thought Putin had sat on the fkn red button for a minute before I remembered.
