Here is a story I wrote as part of my ‘Creative Writing’ module with the OU, back in 2014(?). I don’t remember the score I was given for this piece but it wasn’t good. My tutor told me the story … Continue reading In The Eyes Of The Lord
If time travel became possible I know exactly where I would be heading to first, I would almost certainly be tempted to go and roam the earth with a family of Triceratops or a Parasaurolophus, inclined even to walk the … Continue reading Childhood Bliss
Things I changed my mind about because I grew up, educated myself or just changed my mind because we are allowed to do that. Why do people think that when you’ve made a decision about something you then have to … Continue reading Why women shouldn’t propose and other bullshit I no longer believe…
Art by PMW Paul is very much the Benedict Cumberbatch of the art world. Not conventionally good looking but there’s something strangely alluring about him… I stumbled across Paul completely by accident about a year ago.

And before they arrive at ‘Platform One’ (the observation ship, for those of you who don’t watch it or don’t care enough to know) :D, Rose is deciding where she wants him to take her.. she suggests 100 years in the future (too easy) they then go on to 10,000 years in the future..
