Why, hello!

No, but really, welcome to my blog. It might look a bit chaotic at first, since I post about different topics in what professional bloggers call “nicheless” fashion, but I promise there’s a method to my madness.

(Or is that madness to my method?)

Are you here about writing?

I’m not published. I’ll say that right up front. I have a degree in Creative Writing from the University of Derby, but I’m pretty much in the same boat as you are.

I’ve made something of a hobby out of motivating and helping out my writer friends, though, so why not share the love?

Plus, you know, who doesn’t like free stuff?

Or are you here about cats?

Because I honestly can’t think of anything more interesting than our fuzzy overlords companions.

I’m so fascinated that I’ve become something of an amateur expert in kitties since I adopted KitKat, even though she’s my first and probably the most well-behaved furball you’ll ever meet.

(No, seriously. KitKat sometimes meows to say ‘thank you’ if a carer opens the bedroom door for her. It’s adorable.)

I can’t help it, though. My brain is a sponge for otherwise useless trivia, and I’m a bit of a worry-wart cat mama so it doesn’t take much to send me into a Googling tailspin.

If you or your cats have problems or questions, I’ve probably surfed over the answer at some point in the past year. (Of course, finding it again will be the trick…)

And finally, to your health

I suffer from ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, and a multitude of other conditions. I’ve been too poorly to walk for more than a decade, and bed-ridden for most of the last decade.

I’m lucky that I live in a country that provides free healthcare and free adaptations and equipment to those in need. It’s still immensely difficult to live with a chronic illness.

I’ve picked up a few tips here and there over the years, though, and I’m all aboard the “sharing is caring” train so here. Have some free advice.
