Here's a quick blog update on my progress for #sleepy14 .  It's tomorrow already!  That rolled around fast...
30 Jan 2014 on sleepy14 | Charity | homelessness | charity. Sleepy14 update. It's been 18 days since I posted about the Sleep Easy event, and now it's the night before I sleep out in the cold and likely very wet weather! I've been nagging people fundraising like mad since I last posted - mostly ...

Fantastic episode, Dr F was on top form and gave a very interesting interview.  I hope this is watched far and wide!

I'm sleeping rough for a night to help homeless young people.

Please read and share!

It's a tragedy that in modern times this is even necessary, but I'm happy to do my bit for those unfortunate ones on the streets.
12 Jan 2014 on sleepy14 | Anxiety | Charity. I'm sleeping rough! Just for one night (I needed the headline to draw you in, sorry!), and for a very good cause. It's a tragedy that in recent times homelessness has increased at a rapid rate and "is sadly becoming a reality for increasing numbers of ...

Pics from the #bbcvapemeet at #Hull today.  Just a few of us there, but our little meet was but one part of other meetings held at the same time across Europe.  Most UK BBC offices had meetings outside them today in order to hopefully attract some attention to ecigs and the EU TPD proposals which would see most current electronic cigarettes taken off the market, something that could cost many, many lives!

Sadly nobody from the BBC came out to interview us but one of the Radio Humberside DJ's did wish us luck and said he'd given us a mention on air. 

Thanks to everyone who came along, we all had a good chinwag.  :)

Powerful, beautiful, and hopefully educational. Certainly strikes a chord with me as a fellow GAD sufferer.

I've been gone for a long time, basically because it's been an age since I picked up a camera.  I got the camera out for the first time in I don't know how long the other day.  Honestly didn't realise how much I'd missed it and how much good it does me.  

Hopefully you'll be seeing a bit more of me around here again.  I've missed being around this place and the people I've met here.  Sometimes my head needs a break from online stuff, but I didn't intend the break to be for this long!  

Anyway, here's one I took the other evening at Hornsea beach.  The weather wasn't really on my side, but it felt nice to have produced something again.

Thanks for the welcomes and pluses everyone... I shall work hard to get back out there properly.

I'm a little afraid I've lost my street snapping mojo.  :(  Nothing else for it but to force myself back out there I guess, sink or swim style!

I did it!  Here's my report on my night sleeping rough to raise money for youth homelessness. 

02 Feb 2014 on sleepy14 | Charity | homelessness | charity. My night sleeping rough - Sleep Easy 2014. They say that there's a first time for everything and that certainly applied on Friday night when I did my night of sleeping rough to raise money for homeless young people.

Thanks Cheryl, and for your contribution toward that goal!  Just wondering to myself if I'm daft enough to do it again next year...  :)

A completely accidental image, but one that appealed to me!

Also, may I take this opportunity to remind everyone that I will be sleeping rough so that others don't have to on 31 January.  I know a lot of us are strapped for cash (including me!) but if you have even £1 to spare I'd greatly appreciate you sponsoring me!  All funds raised will help homeless young people in the Humber region. 

You can sponsor me at

Thank you!

My lovely daughter, who I remain incredibly proud of. Pictured with her humungous Burmese Python (which I'm very respectful of!).

Camera addict
Mother, wife, perpetual learner.  I love music of many kinds, books, gaming, linux and all things geek.  

Photography has rapidly turned into a passion, street photography in particular.  I've finally found the creative outlet that allows me to express myself.  It's become both my passion and my therapy.  I still have an infinite amount of learning to do, but I'm relishing every second of it.

Links to all of my photographic stuff, as well as my portfolio, can be found at

Should you want to use any of my images they're available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 license.  This basically means that you can freely use my image for non-commercial purposes, provided you give credit to me (a link back to my profile here or my website would be good!).

I used to smoke, now I vape (use an electronic cigarette - which is really just smoking in a slightly different format without the tobacco part).  I even started a forum all about it!

I have a keen interest in mental health, having not only lived with depression and anxiety for many years myself, but also having both immediate and extended family with various mental health issues of their own.  I mention this not to garner sympathy, but to do my own (tiny) bit to raise awareness of mental health.
