I adore small kids and their gift to, 'giveth no fucks'. 'Hummingbird Lane'; (the bakery), this morning, and two little boys are living their lives to the full. Drunken Salsa moves (well, that's what it looks like to me) and danish flakes all over their frolicking mugs. Mumma and Grandma are trying (in vain) to contain them, and the looker with layered crumbs in her scarf (me), encourages their resistance with a mutinous smile, when none of the adults can see. I am particularly impressed by the scale of the mess. Coup d'état on a parquetry floor. . L. A.

Today: August 17 @ 10pm... I will be #11monthssober *ALSO* today was a hard day to look at the #past on my #onthisday for #Facebook due to #memories that would probably lend themselves to make anyone want to run and grab the biggest bottle of vodka known to man and drown away some sorrows! I, instead, decided to follow through with my crazy plan and #reenrollincollege at #texaswesleyanuniversity !! Today is also the first day of #kindergarten for my #youngest of #foursons *therefore time for this #mommy to finally take some time for herself! After careful deliberation, I decided upon a #major in #English with a #concentration in #creativewriting and a #minor in #theatre 💁🏼 It may be 17 years after my last real college course, but #whatbetterplacethanhere #whatbettertimethannow #onemonthawayfromoneyear #anythingispossible #odaat #soberliving #finishingwhatistarted #awriterslife

I used to collect #madmagazine when I was a young girl. I had hundreds of them and threw them out at some stage (why did I do that?!). I loved them so much and can't believe they're still going after all these years. I bought this one today and may start up the collection once more...30 years down the track. Old habits die hard and all that... P.S. The fold-in finale never fails to satisfy. If it ain't broke... . #childhoodmemories #collection #collectors #comics #nostalgia #oldhabitsdiehard #apoetslife #awriterslife #trump #lol #lolz #mad #stillgreat

Words. Words. Words. I love them. Writing them, reading them, editing them. In fact, working with other women & helping to edit their writing so that it flows beautifully (and is spelling mistake free) is one of my favourite things to do. And thanks to my beautiful Mastermind coach @ruthridgewayxo I'm learning to focus even more on what feels good to me, so I'm now officially offering my editing services to coaches & online business owners. If you're working on any kind of writing (blog, web copy, opt-ins, presentations etc.) & would like some feedback & help, then take a look at my work with me page. I'd love to help you take your writing to the next level ❤️ (link in profile)

#throwbackthursday to four years ago on Christmas, when I was so engrossed in my current story that I sat amongst family members, writing with a Darth Vader mask on my face. Also, notice the Hogwarts shirt. 😆 #nerd #hogwarts #darthvader #Christmas #tbt #awriterslife #writersrelate #awriterslifeforme #thewritinglife #writersofinstagram #writewritewrite #writerscommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetscommunity #follow #comment #like #words #writers #poets #poetry #justkeepwriting #today #life #goodmorning #alwayswriting
