I am currently going through a huge change in my life because on the 21st of September, I am being made redundant from my day job, after 5 years. My full-time hours are being cut and instead, a part-time weekend only person will be employed. I have the option do just the weekends, or to take the weekend hours for a trial for 4 weekends until 15th of October, then take redundancy, if I don’t find anything else to make up the hours to full-time, as I can’t live on those hours, or take redundancy on the 21st. I am going to go with the middle option of the trial, if I have not got another job by the 21st.
At first I was very fearful, but now I am trying to think positive and look forward to starting a new work life and that new opportunities that will come my way.
I am also going to be focusing more on my Quirky Academy and getting that up and running as my online training centre for entrepreneurs, start-ups and creatives, with specialists teaching in their field – What courses would benefit you right now in your personal and professional development?

Hey my quirky friends, long time no write – shame on me hey!! It took me over 10+ hours to create this video. I put it together using a programme called Animatron so it took me a while to learn it, the quotes were created using another programme. Enjoy, and tell me what you think??
Doing anything for the first time can be scary but as I reflect back on this year to date, I have done a lot of firsts and will do more next year.
Angel had her first bath a couple of weeks ago and the bathing went surprisingly well – the hair drying took a lot longer and she decided to repeatedly try to climb under or over my arm at lightening speed. It must have taken twice as long as it should but because she is so gorgeous and so funny, it didn’t really matter because I love her so much. It will be her first Christmas soon, baby’s first Christmas is always good and a memorable one!!
So my firsts for this year:
I succeeded in learning how to use Photoshop so now I create all of my own T-Shirt designs and do the artwork for them.
I got tiered up to the next quantity of T-Shirt designs so I can sell more at one time on Amazon.com
I wrote and published my ‘How To Get Started With Twitter, Get Going and Get Growing A Step By Step Guide” book.
My Asexualise My Asexual Life YouTube channel has grown to over 150 subscribers.
I interviewed over 40 asexuals for my Asexual Perspectives, Love Life And Sex, ACElebration Of Asexual Diversity book and I am trying hard to get the Kindle version published before Christmas.
I completed a Marketing course (still got to action all the modules now though).
I learnt how to use IMovie and can now create my own videos.
I did an’ Inspire With Video Materclass’, so I can create my own inspirational videos.
I completed a “Your Next Bold Move” course at the beginning of this year and it helped me to plan and be more productive for the rest of the year.
What first have you had this year (2016) and what firsts are coming for you next year?
Wow! 6 years to this day I started Blogging on this blog – Quirky Books. This photo is actually taken from a video I did recently for my other channel.
Thank you for all your support; love, kindness, and friendship you have shown me. This blog is one of the very best things I ever started in my life, it helped me changed my life to be much more positive, and helped in my recovery from depression that I had for years prior to 2012, and I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me. I love you to bits xx
I want you to be one of the first to know – that I am changing my QuirkyAcademy.com into an online training centre for Entrepreneurs, Start-ups and Creatives. So if you are interested in any of those areas, and as creative writers I expect you are – then watch out in the next few months for courses to empower and accelerate your learning in all aspects of these areas.
Keep writing, keep being quirky, and keep being you xx

ALWAYS COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS – A HEART’S A HEART!! No matter what happens in life, always count your blessings. My Snow guinea pig has a rare condition where her tongue is attached to her cheeks!! And from now on she needs to have 3 operations a year and check-ups every 2 months. So now I am working extra hours in my day job – 6 days a weeks throughout promotional periods to pay for it, because the insurance company will only pay up to a maximum of half this year and may exclude it from my Snow guinea pig’s insurance completely next year, when it is due for renewal. On average Snow has got another 4 years of potential life left in her and in-between treatments she is happy, playful, and eating/drinking. So I choose to work more hours, so she can live, otherwise she dies. It has taken some adjusting to, but she is worth every penny and a heart is a heart, no matter whether it is covered in fur or skin!
