Bath the city, not a tub filled with water and bubbles.

Not exactly a true story, thankfully as I love my little Andox and would have hated it if this had really happened.

...a girl who can't stop grinning.

I can't help it. It started yesterday when I was on my way to see someone. I was walking along the street and there it was, a big grin plastered on my face. It felt good and I ended up giggling because of the feeling. I didn't much care if anyone saw me grinning like a mad person as I walked along because...well, why not?!

Besides, it's been months since I last felt good about anything and I have done little more than scowl when I'm out and about. So, when I was walking home and the grinning happened again I was delighted and confused more than a few passers by when I smiled and sometimes laughed at nothing. I felt like I owned the town.

Today I have got a body that's more than a little grumpy, all sorts of aches and pains for seemingly no reason, and some pains for very good reasons (it's that time of the month). Despite all that I still had to do the housework. Did not want to stand about washing greasy trays, but there you go, it has to be done. And to my surprise I find myself singing along more than happily to The Feeling and again the grinning and laughing came back. All the pain and aching seemed to disappear into the background! Yay. I'm feeing good about my life even though there's not overly much to celebrate at the moment.

Well, there's one thing. I threw away a big load of baggage the other day, and that took a huge weight off my shoulders. Waking up one morning without a broken heart was certainly a good thing. I want to shout it out to the world really, and I suppose that's where the grinning comes from. Not suffering from heartbreak anymore feels actually a lot better than being in love in the first place did!

He was a looser if you're wondering. I mean, I'm fabulous (and he knew it) yet he didn't want me. His loss. My gain by the looks of it.

..a mad crash through my brain

Welcome to my world. It’s mad, and I like it that way.

I’m an artist, a writer, a photographer, a gardener, a crocheter and a cook. A few years ago I worried that I had no hobbies and wasn’t overly good at much other than writing and art – not that I’m complaining, there isn’t much better in life than a completed story or painting – but then I found some motivation and creativity (thanks to leaving a job that had well and truly crushed my spirit) and I discovered all these things I loved to do. And I was good at them.And here I am babbling about them. Good for me.

I like to babble.

And here's something else I like to do...
