This Love Won’t Break Your Heart (Happy New Year 2020)

2020 was a hell of a year. While we managed to get through it (and even managed some personal milestones: got engaged, finished edits for my debut novel, and revealed the cover art for said novel), we won't be looking to relive it anytime soon. So hopefully, like us, you welcomed in the new year… Continue reading This Love Won’t Break Your Heart (Happy New Year 2020)

Blood Bank

https://www.facebook.com/michaelpburrows/videos/10154945445439880/ Blood Bank Bon Iver Well, I met you at the blood bank, we were looking at the bags, wondering if any of the colours, matched any of the names we knew on the tags.

Christmas Message 2013

Christmas Message 2013 A Frosty Christmas  (Apologies to RF) Some say Christmas should be in heat, some say in snow. From what taste I've had of each I think they’re equally as neat. So much more important though, whether sweating buckets, or under covers- is to use this time to show your family, your friends,… Continue reading Christmas Message 2013

My New Years Wish, From Dublin to Wherever You Are

My New Years Wish, From Dublin to Wherever You Are May the coming year be filled with colour. With red of lips and red of fire and reds of hair and danger. Blue of skies and blue of water and sad blues and baby blues. Green of envy and green of trees and greens of life… Continue reading My New Years Wish, From Dublin to Wherever You Are
