A Profound Look Back at the Week: November 8-14

Primary school children went back to school this week, I had a chance to channel my inner Philip Marlow, and authorities removed the blinking green signal of traffic lights. Quite a busy week. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: November 8-14

A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 18-24

Did you know where the phrase ‘fair warning’ comes from? I didn’t but I learned it this week along with other fascinating things such as that we urgently need actual zombies because we can’t even do an apocalypse right. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 18-24

A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 4-10

It has been a week of adulting and learning new things, and making plans, and spending a fortune on pharmaceutical produce because it’s the season for propping up the body’s defences against whatever lurks in the air. All in all, I’ve had worse. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 4-10

A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 27 – October 3

With September melting into October normality is returning. To my life, that is, not to the world. That train, in the immortal words of Jason Stackhouse, has sailed. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 27 – October 3

A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 20-26

The closer we get to October the happier I normally am. This year there have been interruptions to my growing happiness but I try to be wise about them. After all, many people real-life all the time and not only sporadically like me. It’s all fine, I’m sure and I will have the chance to settle into my usual routine sooner or later. Adulting is okay for a while but not constantly. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 20-26

A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 13-19

I am an adult. This may be stating the obvious for some but for me it is a declaration I vowed to myself I will make if I survive this week with nothing more than mild damages to my mental health. And I did. I also bought a car. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 13-19

A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 30 – September 5

It’s officially here. Autumn, that is. So is our new kitchen. Things are happening, which tells me the extra-dose of real-lifing I was forced to take this summer (which is now on its way out in case anyone has not committed this to memory) is now paying off. Or is it? Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 30 – September 5

A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 23-29

It pleases me immensely to report that this year, for the first time in possibly forever but certainly in years, I had the pleasure of seeing the first signs of autumn in August. Yes, I noticed the “pleases” and “pleasure” and I couldn’t care less. It’s coming! Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 23-29

A Profound Look Back at the Week: July 26 – August 1

It’s that time of the year again when we do our regular trip north, to the Romanian seaside, to visit the in-laws who this year have a brand new addition to the grandkid count, even though he’s a cat. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: July 26 – August 1
