What?

Pink Flower Portrait

Well, as you might expect, I blog about most things, hence the name I Spy with My Idiosyncratic Eye; anything that comes onto my radar is fair game for musing about.   And also, as you might expect from the name, it allows me to explore some of the curious random thoughts that surface in my head (usually when I’m trying to get to sleep).   If you want to see some of the subjects that keep coming up then check out the Ramblings by Theme option in the right hand sidebar.

I Spy with My Idiosyncratic Eye has also been a journey.  It has allowed me to grow in confidence, to have confidence in expressing myself creatively and to have confidence in being myself.  Knitting has been a constant metaphor along the way and I wouldn’t have been able to do with it the encouragement, understanding and support of my readers, to whom I am very grateful.

Some of my posts discuss mental health issues and most of these are prefaced with a ~ Trigger Alert ~ warning.  I recognise that sometimes other people’s distress can be distressing so let the tags and categories guide you and never worry about skipping a post.  I’ll be onto another subject by the next time!

Obviously, being so idiosyncratic, I don’t post to a schedule so if you want to catch the very latest then sign up to either email or RSS subscription.

Oh, and can you do me a wee favour?  If you see any typos or mistakes, then just drop me a comment.  I’d rather know and put it right.  I do try to proofread carefully but sometimes life and brain fog conspire against me.

Happy reading!

    Hey there! I’ve just discovered your blog. I found it on Doodlemum (isn’t she amazing).
    I too have ME and other similar issues to yourself ( including the Doc Marten wearing ) it’s comforting to read someone else’s views on the issues I also have. All your other writing is very enjoyable, keep it up and keep well. Thanks for making me smile. X

    • Thanks for visiting, I’m glad that I was able to put a smile on your face. I don’t know if Doc Marten wearing is an issue per se, some people may think it is though! Keep well yourself. :)

        I’ve just read your ramblings on deserving to be ill. You do not sound screwy at all, I feel like this too. I also hate having to justify the way I feel so I then stop explaining so everyone thinks I’m fine. When I suddenly crack under the strain of all of this others people’s reactions can be “god, what’s your problem” it’s just so mentally exhausting on top of everything else. Should I tell everyone one of every pain/sensation/feeling I have so that they remember I’m ill? I don’t know the solution to this one. I have tried pointing people in the direction on “but you don’t look sick.com” it works for maybe a few day and then they forget again cos I’m not explaining/ reminding them. I think I’ll just put a big sign round my neck saying “sick and cranky – deal with it!” x

        • It’s a bit of a catch-22, if you tell everyone everything you feel then they think that you’re screwy but if you don’t tell them then they think that you’re making it up, which makes you screwy. I like the sign idea, make it a T-shirt and it’ll trend. Thanks for visiting and commenting, I much appreciate it. All the best with your battles. :)

I'd love to know what you think, concrit is especially welcomed on fiction pieces. Thank you.
