long time no see!

Just as I got into the swing of blogging, I seemed to lose my stride somehow and ‘real’ life got in the way…inconsiderate? I think so! Anyway, moving house along with health issues, family and not least of all the beast that is proving to be uni this year, have all kept me hopping these past few weeks. I could really use a clone of myself but then who couldn’t, right? I find myself wishing for more hours in the day lately, like really, really wishing for them! Not so I can have more people/things competing for a sliver of my attention, so I can just have a minute to breathe and remember where I’m going. Sometimes I think we all just need to step back and remember that all this craziness IS towards something, a goal no matter how small or (seemingly) huge is waiting for us to attain it and tick it off the proverbial ‘to do’ list of our lives and the longer we sit around and wish that we hadn’t signed ourselves up for this ridiculous torture, the more precious time we’ve wasted.

I don’t know about you, but I am a habitual though self loathing procrastinator and it becomes a vicious cycle of lack of accomplishment and depression due to lack of accomplishment that eventually ends in me going absolutely nuts for one or two days doing anything and everything I can possibly think of and then regretting it for the same amount of time because I’ve worn myself well and truly out! Ridiculous. Pace, focus and drive towards my ‘end goals’ are what I desperately need and I’m the only one who can deliver these things…consider yourself told Kelley! In the mean time, please tell me someone else out there wishes for a pause button on a daily basis, so you can get things done while the world stands still and well and truly catch up 🙂

10 Offbeat Literary Works of Non-English Writers

10 Offbeat Literary Works of Non-English Writers.


Definitely worth a look!

Super duper extra ordinary-a poem to my children

Exceptionally ordinary, hopelessly extraordinary.

Robust and adaptable, yet delicately fragile

Independent, but still wholly reliant….

are you, my precious, incredible child.


You expose me, my weaknesses, my failings, my mistakes.

You call my bluffs, drag me out of my comfort zone and enrage my heart.

The tempestuous relationship we share will always be exactly that…

unpredictable, untrustworthy, impossible to quell.


With one look, one word, one simple gesture, you alone can make my temper writhe.

With one soft kiss and gentle caress, you alone can make that same temper melt away into a sea of pure bliss.

In one moment, you changed everything.

In one instant you became everything.


The raw act of conception seems too mundane to have borne you into my arms.

The simplicity of you inside me in the eyes of the world frustrates me.

I see you for what you are,

No ordinary thing.

No simple feat.

No normal being….you are me.


You are me and a thousand other mes.

You are you and a million possibilities.


All that I have is you, all that I want is you, all I will ever need is you.

If nothing comes right and the world falls around us,





I never knew love this intense, this consuming,

this unconditionally unstoppable.

Not until the first moment I met you,

you, perfect you.


Where there was longing, there is now joy.

Where there was peace, there is now potential.

Where there was calm, there is now chaos.

Where there was nothing, now there is you, perfect you.

Not sure where I stand on the issue of the Flaneuse either. I have a feeling Benjamin would be turning in his grave if he knew we had engendered his idea!

This is quite cool IMO. Another version of a blog or social network, but more visual which is cool =)
