The Brontës

Haworth is a beautiful, historic village nestled in to the outskirts of the Pennines. It is famous for its cobbled streets, olde world sweet shop, apothecary and of course it was the home of The Brontës from 1820 until 1861. The Brontë sisters, and their brother, were born in Thornton village, just along the road from where I grew up. This is where my love of the Brontës and Haworth stems from. I feel a connection with them and Brontë Country because to me they are of great importance, their history, and the imprint they have made on the world. … Continue reading The Brontës

Let your spirit soar

    The soul soars high with each step you take in to the light, The sun shines down on your life. You take this feeling of euphoria and you bask in it. You are this feeling, it consumes you. There is nothing in the world now that can break your spirit. You are the spirit, you are free. Kate Hames       Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,  next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂  ‘Blind faith is no way to run … Continue reading Let your spirit soar

Paranormal Interview

An interview with a medium. They chose to remain anonymous due to personal reasons. 1.When did you first realise you had this gift? Do you class it as a gift? Yes, I class it as being a gift. I was 6 or 7 when I first realised I had it. 2. What has been your strangest experience? I once saw a presence riding alongside me and my horse. The horse began to act quite weird and at first I just thought he was misbehaving, I then realised that he could sense we weren’t alone. 3. What has been your scariest experience? … Continue reading Paranormal Interview

Haiku’s

  Hello! yes I know, Tuesday’s are supposed to be short story days, unfortunately my short story seemed to lack an ending so it’s Haiku’s today 🙂   Doctor Who? you ask, He’s the mad man with a box The bow tie wearer The naked tree branch, It sways in the wind, so harsh. Still so beautiful. Raindrops kiss my face, The tears run so freely now, Mistaken for rain. If I were to stay I would need more than you promise Actions speak louder…   Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams … Continue reading Haiku’s

Stop labelling yourself

  I have no doubt what so ever that mental illness is real. I know it is real, I’ve witnessed it first hand, I’ve dealt with it on a personal level. However I do believe to some extent that we are mollycoddling ourselves and exacerbating the situation. As much as awareness needs to be raised in regards to mental health and in keeping people safe we also need to stop viewing it as a personality trait. It is never something to be ashamed of but it’s not something to be proud of neither. As an anxiety sufferer with PTSD and … Continue reading Stop labelling yourself

Wednesday Haiku’s

  Watch the sunshine fade, The remnants of the day, Gone without a trace. The mirror shows truth. A reflection cannot hide. A story, so sad. Sweet sticky buns, A tasty treat for tea-time Sugary goodness.   Running, running, fast You will not escape from me, Keep on running, fast.   With a cup of tea, I can take on the whole world, Nothing can stop me.   Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.  Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,  next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂 ‘Blind faith is … Continue reading Wednesday Haiku’s

Just some Haikus

  I enjoy writing Haiku’s. They seem so simple because you have an easy set of rules to stick to but it gets harder and harder. Especially if you want them to make some sort of sense. I could write total gibberish to be honest and sometimes I might. Wednesdays from now on will be my Haiku day. I hope I don’t start repeating myself 🙂 Enjoy ♥ Where are you going? The girl on the bus, where? Will you make it there? I am not a thing, I possess much more than that. My vision is set. Time is never … Continue reading Just some Haikus

Walking Whernside

Walking is amazing, it’s one of the best and easiest ways to get and keep fit. It gets you out in the fresh air and it’s free. You don’t need any specialist equipment, unless you’re doing something that involves mountainous regions or long distance. If you’re walking around your local park you’ll probably be safe enough with a bottle of water and hopefully you won’t need a compass.* I love planning a walk, a big walk I mean, and by plan I mean something along these lines… “Gayle do you fancy a walk next Sunday”? “Yeah, sure, where”? “Not sure, … Continue reading Walking Whernside
