One of the fans of my ramblings on here almost managed to shock me speechless a few days ago. They had somehow managed to tell me the whole purpose of my blog in its current state - whilst the person who had actually started the thing off (me) was still trying to work it out.
Yes - this blog is still primarily a space where I can empty my head (at least as far as I am concerned anyway) but it is also a space where I hope you can learn a bit about my world and about me (whether or not you know me from the "Real World", Social Media, or any other planet I may inhabit at any given time).
My favourite websites are ones where I can learn things at my leisure. My favourite books (non-fiction) are about situations I have never been in in real life but the book draws me into each scenario and leaves me feeling educated about them without being patronised or bored by the explanations.
The most recent book I have enjoyed reading was about the Alphabet and it was written by Michael Rosen. His use of humour had me laughing at such silly things as "If I said I had had a breakdown and wanted to contact The AA you would not think I had had a panic attack on a motorway and wanted a drink".
The book before that was "It's All About Treo" by David Heyhoe which was about the bond between a dog trained to detect explosives and his handler during their time in Afghanistan. I had to read that from cover to cover in one go it was so gripping.
I just hope that reading my ramblings makes you feel like you are powerful (after all - some of you have inspired a few of my ramblings) and able to fight your own demons like I am still trying to fight mine.
