Hey folks,

Just wanted to say that you can all pick up my latest published short story as part of the 9 Tales Told in the Dark series, and it's available from next week. (19th April).

If you're interested, it's only just over a dollar on your kindle and, of course, I'd love to hear what you think!

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...

So I managed to get one of these bad boys last week! Well, it was my *cough* 37th birthday.

So many classics!

Anyone else picked one up?

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...

I went to England this last weekend for a wedding of some really great friends.

I was able to drag my gorgeous portuguese lady along with me too, though I did have to dress smart, shock, horror!

Great time though and the wedding was a beautiful, love filled occasion.

Hope you guys also had top weekends!

I actually think that much of my remaining faith in humanity comes from exactly these things! In a world where politics and media get more depressing every fifteen minutes, a random act of kindness, regardless of how small, can be a great way to remember that humans can be pretty fabulous at times. This example is super tiny, but it's these ones that I...

So, I was out earlier. Did the internet break when Suicide Girls published new sets of @coralinne and @ness on the same day? Imagine if they did a multi?! :O :P

One of the things I love about living the ex-pat life is that my friends from back in England sometimes drop by to spend some time with me and I get the chance to show them the local food, culture, sights, etc.

Last week, I had four of my very best mates stop by in Lisbon for a whole week but, because I work a...

@missy @rambo

Wow, was this ever one that struck a chord with me. The thing I wish I'd learned sooner is how much importance to place on happiness and enjoying what you do with life.

When I quit uni I fell into a "career" job and followed that path for about 9 years, despite never really being satisfied with it. The better I did...
