Now my life is calm and stable. I don’t get the January blues. Therapy, a mindfulness course and caffeine free living did the trick. Life used to be a rollercoaster, out Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night and even Sunday night then sliding into miserable Monday. Now I can talk passionately and from a place of calm about my kind of January blues. (It's taken 47 years and a good few thousand pounds to get to this place of stability, don’t get me wrong. I loved the wild days but I’m glad they are over)Read More
I’ve had a fair few wild nights out in my time, and most of them I’d like to forget. The seriously wild ones I can’t even bear to even re-live in my mind.
I might be persuaded to talk about the time I woke up at 7 am on the grass verge near my house with my sunglasses on fully dressed with a handbag and laptop over each arm. (It must have been summer) When the sun came up, I sat bolt upright. No, no, stop, it’s not working, it’s making me panic, I’d need a stiff drink to finish that story.Read More
Some people have a shoe addiction I have a framing habit. It is one of the reasons I set up Blank White Space. I'd frame the boys if they stood still long enough. The guys at Ray’s Frames in Hackney smile when they see me coming (that is at least three times a day).Read More
Last year I got our Christmas tree into my convertible Fiat 500 (Geoff, he had the roof down). The fabulous Botanical Boys carried it upstairs for me. As much as I’d love a huge 20ft Norway Spruce (like the Queen) my tree is normally around 5ft. With two now strapping lads, I’m hoping for a bit bigger one this year.Read More
