I’m a head full of memories that desperately want to tell my tale. I have been a little girl trapped by fear and other people’s power and an adult that has overcome fear and took hold of my own power. I am a Wife and Mother; the best things I ever chose to be, it would fulfil a lifelong wish to add the title “Writer” in the future. My low self-worth, ill health and probably lack of experience and know how stand in my way. There’s something can be done about all but one of those things but there’s no getting around bad health so easily! My blog will be a place to store my memories, the good and the bad, they will be truthfully what I can remember but that doesn’t mean they will be the accurate truth of things. Often the things you don’t remember are just as important as what you do; the things you didn’t see or hear perhaps even more important to the truth of things. I will always tell my version of the truth, I can’t vouch for the information I have been told by others along the way but without their input I wouldn’t be able to tell my story. Memories are like floating balloons, they don’t come in any order and I need help to tie them onto my timeline. They can generate so many questions, where was that, who am I with, why did that happen and so on; sometimes you can get those blanks filled in and sometimes not.
I am an avid reader, fantasy is my favourite genre; seeking escapism from reality, it had to be fantasy! Much mocked and maligned but there’s plenty strength, bravery, justice, heroism, loyalty and hope to be found in epic fantasy novels! A crafter, cook and gardener in the days before my health deteriorated, these days I’m a film buff, webaholic and recipe finder for my husband; the now and future cook. That should be enough about me I think. Want to know more? Ask
