Green Lemons are Limes

The adventure that moving and living in Spain has continually been. Tragic events that have turned everything upside down, house moves and running a bar in the Spanish countryside.

Why Now ?

This blog has been a long time coming!

I started writing six years ago, then I stopped. A tragic event in my life, left me no head room to write. Apart from one piece that I am extremely proud of, which was published in the bestselling book ‘365 Life Shifts’.

Then a few months ago I decided to start again, so why didn’t I? 

Well it’s easy, I doubted myself, after re-reading my previous blogs, I saw how badly written they were. I wanted everything perfect this time around. I decided to ask friends to help, then the self-doubt really hit in. Why, because I am not the best writer in the world, my grammar at times is shocking and my spelling not much better. Did I really want to put people I care about in a position where they had to spend hours of their time correcting something I wanted to do, NO!

So although I will still be asking friends to take a quick look, just to ensure it makes sense. I will not be asking them to correct in a big way.

This is my blog, my story, told from my heart.

If you are looking for a perfectly written story, then you best look elsewhere, because this will not be that.

I have had to get to the point where I can shut out voice in my head that’s telling I’m not good enough and just tell my story.

If no-one reads it, then hey ho. One day maybe it will bring back memories for my children and an insight to the person they call Mum. 

I do hope that you stick with me, overlook my errors and enjoy my story.

Looking forward to your story & don't worry about the way it's composed as it will likely be more readable & personable if written from the heart

The story is the most important bit and I look forward to reading it. I hope to move to my Spanish house soon and reading other people's experiences is valuable to learn before I commit any errors. You will probably find that the more you write the grammar and spelling improves with it. Good luck with your writing and enjoy it.
