In last month’s Long time, no blog post I alluded to a ‘big personal project’ on the horizon – all is revealed in the above film! 😉 This film is my first stab at creating a digital story, the result of a digital storytelling course facilitated by Breaking Barriers Community Arts that I did over Easter.(image)

Another rough and ready bit of creative writing – the result of a second ‘story circle’ exercise we were set during the digital storytelling course I attended over over Easter. We had to very quickly create a story from a photograph we were shown. Above is the brilliant photo by Chris Killip. Here’s what I came […](image)

One of ‘story circle’ exercises we were set during the digital storytelling course I attended over over Easter was to very quickly create a story from a series of random words we’d all come up with. Above is the picture of the words we were working with. Here’s is the story I came up with: […](image)

Well, it’s that time when I take a look at the blog and realised it hasn’t been updated for two months. So it made me think on what the hell I’ve been doing for the last couple of months and realise things have been pretty busy since settling into my new Cardiff home. Here’s a […](image)

When I was told I have endometriosis, I naturally went online to find out a bit more about it. This led me the website for Endometriosis UK, a charity that supports women with the condition. As well as the explanations and hints and tips, I read quite a few of the personal stories on the […](image)

I had envisaged taking part in The Guardian’s 52 weeks photography project would result in a nice little archive of photos of my first year back living in Cardiff but as I’m travelling around quite a bit, it isn’t quite working out like that.

I’ve introduced a new category to this blog, ‘Health and happiness’ to chart a few changes I’m making to try and be…er…healthier and happier. (Just as a pre-warning, these posts will be quite personal – I’ve been inspired by Ellie Stonely to chart a journey I seem to be on.) The lifestyle changes have come […](image)

I was amazed to see these daffodils for sale at Cardiff Central Station on Monday, so bought a bunch and took a photo of them when I got on the bus to Pontcanna. Now the winter frost has returned, will the spring blooms that made an early entrance perish with the cold? I really hope […](image)
