THAT fear you feel when you have no work coming in? I know it well. Very well. I’ve been freelancing for six years now, making money from my blog for the last 18 months or so and still, I fear THAT fear. When work is quiet. When my inbox is manageable. When my bank balance looks piteously low or I’m in the red. I’ve been there more times than I
IF you’re expecting baby news, you’re going to be disappointed. But if you love animals, then you’re in a for a winner today folks! ;-) Ladies and gents, may I introduce you to the new member of our little family, Busta the dog. A 13 week golden cockapoo whom arrived in our lives this weekend and has already turned them upside down!

GO on, I beg of you. You’ll be in good company too I promise, because I’m just about to do exactly that. I’ve been sitting here for a good couple of hours now working, but there’s nothing else left in the tank, so to speak. I’m supposed to be sat here writing blog posts and catching up with emails.

I THINK I may have lost my edge. I realised that last week. I looked in my wardrobe and didn’t like half the clothes that currently hang in there.
