I’m not posting here as regularly as I used to. It’s possibly because I’m using Instagram as a kind of blog, posting a picture and a little commentary over there quite frequently. It’s an extremely easy way of posting so I can see why it’s become so popular. Are you on Instagram? Give me a follow if you are, I’ll try to follow back.
I’ve been busy over the last few weeks, applying for, being short-listed for, being interviewed for and not being offered, various jobs (very time-consuming). I haven’t given up on finding an interesting, rewarding, arts-centred, fulfilling part-time job that gives me a small income, allows me to make a contribution to the local community and offers me mental and emotional stimulation for a couple of days a week. I’ll keep looking. On top of this, I owe a poetry magazine some reviews (deadline imminent – reviews always take longer than I think they will!). Then I’ve been organising a reading at Bath Festivals by the Town Hall Poets (the Poetry Society Stanza group I run in Trowbridge) as well as doing the parenting stuff associated with looking after teenagers about to sit GCSE and ‘A’ level exams.
I’ve managed to get out and about in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, although not as much as I’d like to have. The wild garlic is especially luscious at the moment.
Hope everyone is well. Perhaps the blogging bug will come back soon.
