Today's word prompt was ‘knot.’ What. A. Day. My stomach has been knots. I've been on a new level of on edge today.

I'm home! Doctors weren't over the moon but I feel ready to be treated in the comfort of my own house instead of a sticky germ filled ward!

It's rare we're ever completely happy with our lot. I found that the secret… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 22 – Peace

It's just in between. An inconvenience that doesn't provoke any strong reaction other than 'meh.' Reflective of how… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 12 – Drizzle #BledJ
