Desire for the Idyllic…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: General

Today I started and Etsy Shop called Shards of Arcadia for selling some of my Photography. I’m certainly not quitting my day job, but I hope that this will blossom into something valuable for me down the track. At least it’s inspiring and provides a little bit of hope that an escape is possible.

I’ve decided to take the chance and start trying to market some of my Photography. Clearly I’m not in a position to leave my day job, and I doubt I will be for some time to come. Yet it feels to me that now might be the right time to make that plunge into the […]

Furbag Summary…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Furbag, Humour

Well Chemoux’s been here three weeks now and it’s all working out better than I could have hoped in this short time. Tigga and Chemoux were literally playing at wrestling on the bed all over me while I was trying to sleep the other night. Then they’d go “plop” landing on the floor, race around […]

Change, Change, Change…

I wasn’t really planning it, as I said the other day, a bit of retail therapy, which was definitely NOT necessary, but will prove useful. I’m just finishing off configuring up the iPhone 6 that arrived today, and am just about to get to the new iPad Air 2 that also arrived. The iPhone looks […]

Thud and Pick Myself Up…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Health, Work

Well a bit of a crash with the depression, but picking myself up again. Much quicker these days, and I’ve had time to get into perspective the precipitating events and interactions. Work is a significant trigger of these cycles. I’m just going to have to keep coming up with strategies to get me through while […]

Fruit Retail Therapy…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: General

Oh and I forgot, I may have had some other retail therapy yesterday with a little slip of an iPad Air 2 & an iPhone 6! Which of course has necessitated the purchase of an Otterbox Defender which unfortunately wasn’t as cheap as the last two I bought for the iPhone 5.

Despite the funk that’s been hanging over me the last three days, I’ve done some positive things to try and move forward; both out of this dark space, and with my medium to long term goal of trying my hand at the Photography Profession. I’ve pulled out “The Happiness Trap” by Russ Harris again, as […]

Well seems I’m not out of the woods with the depressive patches. I have been having a very down period this week; partially bought on by painting and varnishing in an enclosed area with what I thought was as much ventilation as I could manage. Clearly it wasn’t enough! Headaches & Nausea for about 36 […]

Well ALL the Bookdepository orders have shipped, the Garmin Oregon 600t Handheld GPS arrived today and also the Impala Blue Cat Deterrents. So Chemoux is going to be pushing for the outside world now. Unfortunately I’ve not yet broached the subject of her arrival with Bob & Jan. No dodging it any longer I guess. […]

Sometimes it can be costly staying at home for the day! This morning it was Bookdepository, and this afternoon it was a Garmin Oregon 600t Handheld GPS that I’d had my eye on for some time. Both purchases were significant, and both for the Photography. Additionally over the weekend there was the purchase of 2 […]

Less than 48 hours since Chemoux joined the Darriwell Clan, but things are looking reasonably positive. She seems to be very keen on Tiggakat, and in return is being warmed towards. There is an uneasy but promising play routine starting to grow between them and I’m very positive for the medium to long term. Chemoux […]

The first night over, and the new addition Chemoux spent the night on the bed. The incumbent i.e. Tigga decided to spend the night downstairs. However this morning we seem to be making slight progress. The newcomer is quite comfortable and happy. The incumbent is taking some time to warm up to her housemate. I […]
