The ethereal kitchen of the less than spotless mind

My very first blog post: new girl arrives at the party – with first date nerves. Who should I talk to? What should I wear? Is my skirt tucked into my knickers? If I start with a lively voice, will people notice if I slur or fall asleep mid-sentence? Where’s the kitchen around here?

How to introduce myself?

I’m poet, novelist, short fiction writer and chatty type. I’m also a mother, part time charity shop manager and ex-scientist.

Perhaps it’s easiest to start the way I hope to continue and let some writing speak for me – it’s not shy, like I am.

Here’s a link to two poems of mine on Ink, Sweat and Tears last week.

    Can one even BE an ex scientist? Isn’t it like the mafia, once you’re in you can never leave?

    I’ve already learned something new about you – I didn’t know you were an ex-scientist!

    Love the poems, particularly “Old Etonian Recipe” (last line = ah!! :-))

    Thanks, Jenny.

    Ron, it’s like dementia: changes the shape of the mind, the way one looks at the world, yes.

    Trixie, I’ve also worked as an audit accountant but I keep quiet about that: too sad. I stuck it 18 months with the carrot of “go anywhere in the world and be well-paid”. As a recent graduate in Thatcher’s era it seemed good security but … *shudder*.

    Welcome to the bloggy world! It’s strange talking when you don’t know who is listening isn’t it?!
