So here we are again – another Monday morning and a whole load of challenges ahead. As it seems this year in the UK Autumn started the minute September came, this makes getting the house and garden ready for winter all that more problematic as I try and avoid the deluges. This coupled with finishing off the shower room has given more more than I need to keep me out of trouble and away from my writing – this is frustrating! But saying this Autumn is my favorite time of year!
With the weather closing in though the hope that writing time will come the crappy weather isn’t unreasonable. I know Sacha is holding me to my target and I’m very aware of this!
Speaking of Sacha, if you guys don’t know the @BloggersBash is now running the weekly #BloggersBashChat. It’s a fun and interesting way to connect with other bloggers and we’re even pulling some bloggers from their Bloggers site to WordPress on the back of this. Have a look and make sure you’re ready to chat between 7pm and 8pm UK time to take part.
I’m still trying to get my promised projects into posts for you, this is I’m sorry to say more drawn out than a speech in Florence. Thanks for being great bloggies though.
Along with this are some of the regular musings and sharing from life as we know it. Also make sure you keep up in my other places on the interweb:

This morning I woke to the sound of wind and it was the right type of day to do something pretty cool and make a time lapse video of some clouds. So on the way to work I made this:
Despite this beauty the power of the wind has been in the news a lot these last few days and my thoughts go out to those who have been affected by the storms in the Caribbean.
I’m giving some of my old posts some new life, looking back I’m copying and where needs be re-touching some of my old posts. It’s going to be interesting to see where I was at then and what I wrote:
The world we live in is large, amazing, terrifying and wonderful. We are so small by comparison and when problems get to us we can forget this. I’ve found recently that my perspective on the problems in my life needed to change.
I’ve been going through a rage of numerous problems for some months now, from the personal to the professional. Sometimes it seemed too much to cope with. The way I was looking at those problems was making it worse and dragging me down. Thinking about this and and I decided that changing the way I look at the problem could help immensely.
I recently decided that being human being (haha) with a brain that can think and solve problems, is a good mental attitude to adopt of dealing with life’s ups and down. Changing my attitude and I’m looking at life in a more positive light, focusing on the the good things in it and not giving up has helped me immensely recently.
I’m not saying that this is an attitude we should all adopt, because everyone is different and that what makes people good at working out problems – our ability to act in different ways benefits us.
