But this isn't an unhappy post. It's the latest book - my sixth, thus far. It's almost finished.

This is a kind of fairy tale/folkloric #horror story, based on a mask-wearing ritual which still happens in Portugal today. They're thought to ward off evil spirits.

I wrote a short story about it a couple years ago, which was featured on a fiction podcast. It...

I'm into the final week of my summer course in the UK, which means that, on Saturday, I'm starting my journey back to Portugal. I brought my car this year, so I'll be driving to the Channel Tunnel, taking my car on the train under the sea, then driving all the way south through France, then across Spain and back down to Lisbon via the...

Hey everyone,

Next Wednesday, I'm heading back to Poland, where I used to live, for a week. I'm going to a teaching congress type thing for one of the days, but I'm also going to be using it as some vacation time.

I'll be staying in a really cool medieval city called Torun at the beginning, then a couple days in the southeast with a...

I've been away from SG for a while. I've still been following lots of my favourites on socials, etc, but for some reason, I've not found the time to come here. My membership lapsed and I just never got around to renewing it.

I'm happy to be back!

A lot has happened with me in the time I was away. I'm still teaching English in...

So, just lately I've been mega crazy busy. I've been really trying to look after my health and so getting to the gym more (no, I'm not a Januwarrior, this started about 3 months ago!!)

I've also taken on a creative writing challenge, a story a week for a year! 52 stories is an enormous amount and it's taking up a lot of my time....

So my missus and I picked up this little beauty last weekend. She was super shy at first, as she's very small and was a rescue kitty from a litter a street cat had. But now she's super friendly and soaking up all the love we can give her. It's so great to have a furry friend to share our lives with. :)

As anyone who knows me knows, I live in Portugal's beautiful capital, Lisbon.

I teach English there and live with my wonderful girlfriend, just outside the city. Moving there has been one of the best choices of my life, after a really nice three years in Poland where, in the end, the salary I had just restricted me a bit too much.

Fast forward to...
