Triumph: A Return to the blogosphere

Today’s Daily Post one-word prompt is Triumph, so I find it a little serendipitous that this is the day I decide to take a deep breath and jump back into blogging – my own little triumph. It’s been about four months since I’ve been around – sorry to say that also includes keeping up with all…… Continue reading Triumph: A Return to the blogosphere

Three terms we need to stop using to excuse horrible behaviour.

As I’m doing NaBloPoMo this month my inspiration started running thin and I started thinking about different topics I could write about. I decided to monitor what I talked about in general to The Boy, my friends and my colleagues. This was a topic The Boy and I ranted on for a while and one…… Continue reading Three terms we need to stop using to excuse horrible behaviour.

The Employment Enigma

Today’s Blogging 101 assignment was to build on something you’d commented on yesterday while being a good neighbour. I did my commenting this morning. There was a post I commented on that had me thinking all day. I wasn’t necessarily thinking about the post directly, but it had me on a train of thought that I’d like to talk…… Continue reading The Employment Enigma

Admin etc

Introducing me.

Well hello there, new visitor to my blog, sitting there wondering who are you? and why have you no posts? and what are you all about? I’m Hayley, middle name Margaret, which as a child I used to think very embarrassing and elderly but now I am a bit grown up it sounds more sophisticated and mature. I’m 24 and…… Continue reading Introducing me.
