So I have this song stuck in my head. Why? Well because it’s 11 days until the next Cabaret Roulette show! Cabaret Roulette - Intergalactic!! You know you want to come down to the show!! Not least because I will be there but also because of this INTERSTELLAR lineup (Oh yes I did!);

* Refusing to get out of her Koji Japanese street construction worker uniform, fire performer Red Sarah!

* Going where no man, woman or man-dressed-as woman has gone before, neo-drag artist Crystal Lubrikunt!

* Still picking the pieces of carbonite out of her hair, comic burlesquer Luna Peach!

* Thanking us for all the fish and running away with the dolphins, mime artist Elsie Diamond!

* Fed up with being the only spaceship defending the universe from the constant, ever-worsening onslaught of space invaders, magicians Griffin & Jones!

* Doing things on the Holodeck that must stay in the Holodeck, musical comedian Elliot Mason!

* I am a fish. I am a fish. I am a fish. Comedian Jayde Adams!

* Ready for a little cabaret after watching ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate, belly dancer Rosie Kohl!

* Blowing your mind with one casual artificially-voiced sentence, chanteuse and resident performer Anna Lou Larkin!

And luring us all over to the Dark Side, compere Joe Morose, ably assisted by companion droid Lilly SnatchDragon!

It’s cabaret Jim, but not as we know it.

I can’t actually believe I made it to 100 days! This has been one of the most difficult challenges I have set for myself. 

Originally inspired by seeing other people’s posts I decided to see how I would fare. 

Living day to day with a mental health issue can be so incredibly challenging.  I hold myself upright and smile every day so that no one has to see the horrors beneath the surface. Sometimes I forget to look up and see the beauty that surrounds me. 

I am incredibly lucky to have some of the most spectacular friends a girl could ask for and an unwavering support network. A lot of the time I feel so alone that I forget the friends waiting in the wings. Over the past 100 days there have been days where I have not even got out of bed but I pushed myself to make a post no matter how small and seemingly insignificant. 

Special thanks go out to Lisa, Kizzy, Vivacity, James, Lyn Kate and Julie without the cast iron support of you guys, I don’t know where I would be right now. Things have been so hard these past few months and each have you have saved my life in some way for which I am eternally grateful! 

I did it! If I can make 100 days, anyone can!!

I’m dedicating my penultimate happy day to my darling Debs Smith. Debs is my army wife. I met her 10 years ago back in the days of 9 platoon at ATR Winchester. It was love at first sight. We ran amok at the barracks as well as in Normandy, sharing a bed much to the pleasure of a pervert corporal who used to watch us through the curtains!!  We lost contact after we both left the army and then on a whim, I wrote to Debs after finding some old letters she wrote to me whilst I was still in training, by a stroke of luck her parents were still at the same house and forwarded my letter to her. After a while of writing we ended up getting together and unleashing a reign of terror on Nottingham city! It was as if we’d never been apart! I love this girl to bits and her amazing son George too. Debs, you are one of the greatest friends I could ask for and I love you baby girl <3

I FINALLY got round to getting the final Dexter book. I LOVED the show for the most part but was saddened by the way they finished it. The books were spectacular though and I just never managed to get round to getting this last one. I can&#8217;t WAIT to read it!!!

So you go your way wild one

And if you change your mind
I will be waiting here for you tomorrow

Water in equal measures terrifies and fascinates me. I love sitting by the river/sea and listening to waves crashing over rocks. It&#8217;s the most soothing sound ever. 🌊

(Couldn&#8217;t get a decent pic today so I&#8217;m using this one I took some years ago on the Isle of Wight.)

I love clouds. I&#8217;ve always had a thing about them. This is a Cumulonimbus cloud as far a I can tell. One of the lower cloud formations. 

Cumulonimbus are heavy and dense low-level clouds, extending high into the sky in towers, plumes or mountain shaped peaks. Commonly known as thunderclouds, the base is often flat and very dark, and may only be a few hundred feet above the Earth&#8217;s surface. Cumulonimbus clouds are associated with extreme weather such as heavy torrential downpours, hail storms, lightning and tornados.

I like to just lie back and watch clouds pass by.

Lots of little things made me happy today. Spending the day out of London. Visiting a farm with Lyn and the twins. James&#8217; enthusiastic cries of &#8220;sheepses&#8221;. Teaching William to fist bump. A happy looking cupcake. Tempestuous looking clouds that didn&#8217;t quite manage to rain. A funny looking statue. A lovely gift from Lyn. Kisses from my Arya. However, the icing on the cake of today has to be the little horse shaped punch used to validate my ticket. I like to hope that the ticket inspector has a young daughter who he collects these tiny horse cut outs for.

If there&#8217;s one thing I don&#8217;t love about London it&#8217;s the lack of greenery. However, when you do find a green space it is generally glorious. My favourite green space in London is St James Park but today I stumbled upon this beauty at Wandsworth Common 💜

Been having a really crappy few days and today was especially horrid but I&#8217;ve had someone nudging at me to keep me going and then I was looking for something and found this. It belonged to a very good friend of mine and I stole it from him more than 10 years ago. I thought I&#8217;d lost it. I&#8217;m so happy I didn&#8217;t!! *crying happy tears*

I love it when my fleece comes out of the tumble drier. I can wrap myself up in it and be a big toasty burrito!!
