24: Hedgerows

So where did I leave you last time? Oh, yes – I was about to do my preparation for going back to The Day Job tomorrow. And, am I? Well, yes I am doing some prep, but – it’s not for my employer! And, is that a bad thing? No! Daylight’s calling and I’m slipping…

22: Bit by Bit

  Three months to go. Three months before the whole of my meness can step out. Three months before I dare glance into the mirror to see who I am. Three months to get this blog site to do a take-off because, once I’ve stepped out, I’m not at all sure that I’ll have any…

17: Getting Onto It!

Did I say I was going to start and finish writing a whole book this week? Was I lying? Not sure! It’s true that I haven’t started writing the aforesaid promised book yet but, hey, it’s only Tuesday – I’ve still got a whole week left, before I return to my day job next Tuesday!…

15: Why Hinch?

Why on this planet did I  bother with all that hinching over the weekend.

So, how many words of my ‘book in a week’ have I churned out since yesterday? None. Zero. Zilch. Mrs Hinch is, of course, to blame for this prevarication! How?…

Savvy Book – Hinch Yourself Happy

Courtesy of my good friend, Waterstones, I just finished reading Mrs Hinch’s book of cleaning tips, ‘Hinch Yourself Happy’! Not being the tidiest of people (currently surrounded by mountains of dusty books), the last thing I expected was to become a convert. Why then, yesterday, did I find myself googling ‘Deflora’ to find out how to…

Hinch an Inch: A Silly Poem
