There's a reason this place is called Mim's Muddle, it's no use telling you what sort of stuff you'll see here because I don't know myself until it gets written. This is my brag book, my journal, my (occasional) ranting space and my creative corner of the interwebs. Come on in and have a look around, hopefully you'll find something to amuse or interest you!

#KellsWritingChallenge Day 7 – The high road

Every time I’ve looked at this writing prompt the ONLY thing that pops into my head is the chorus from The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond as sung by Harry Secombe playing Neddie Seagoon in The Goons episode “The Treasure in the Lake” (aka “The Treasure of Loch Lomond”).

#KellsWritingChallenge Day 5 – If only…

#KellsWritingChallenge Day 3 – Chocolate cake

Yesterday there should have been a post using the prompt “chocolate cake”. Yesterday was not a day conducive to writing, let alone writing about chocolate cake. I don’t think I care enough about chocolate cake to write a post about it. Mr17 probably cares enough, if his rant on the subject of the difference between […]

#KellsWritingChallenge Day 2 – Summer

Not my favourite time of the year. In fact, I’m with Brocklesnitch on the subject of summer, it generally makes me miserable and because I’m not a fan of being miserable and we have air-conditioning at home it also tends to result in a massive electricity bill. Which I feel guilty about. But not quite […]

#KellsWritingChallenge Day 1 – Moving

Can’t get moving. That’s me, most of the time. Starting things takes this monumental effort. And nothing happens without a looming deadline. So it’s kind of handy that Kellie invited me to participate in her 10 day writing challenge, because I’ve been eying this much neglected blog for months and thinking it’d be nice to […]
