I am currently stretched out on the sofa, listening to George Michael singing Last Christmas. I have the house to myself - J&S are at work and I've finished all my chores for the day so I have the afternoon to do as I please. I'm warm, the fire is on and Odin is stretched out asleep in front of it. He's dreaming, back legs twitching and making some interesting noises. Aslan is curled up on my feet and Jadis is on the back of the sofa. They're both asleep too.

I keep trying to read but I'm finding myself far too easily distracted for that. I'm thinking of maybe joining them in a nap. But I'm also tempted to put on a movie - Harry Potter, maybe - or get out the cards and play some solitare.

According to one of the trending topics on Twitter, today is National Siblings Day - which gives me something to talk about on here rather than S now being down with this stomach flu and J feeling better, or rambling about these maths lessons.

I come from a decent-sized pretty close family. I have one older brother Peter, one older sister Susan, and younger twin sisters Polly and Esme. You may now be noticing a theme with the names, especially when you factor in the fact I'm called Lucy! Our parents are pretty big fans of CS Lewis' Chronicles Of Narnia - especially The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. To this day, they're still disappointed they didn't have a second to call Edmund. Esme is one of the feminine forms of Edmund though, so they got as close as they could without actually calling her Edmund. Poor Polly was almost called Jadis, after The White Witch but they went for naming her after the female character from The Magician's Nephew.

I seem to be the only one following the naming tradition - my two cats are called Jadis & Aslan. We also have a dog who's mostly J's called Odin after the Norse God. I have no idea why, he's not even that into Norse Mythology and it wasn't like he'd recently seen anything Marvel, cos I'm pretty sure he'd have named the dog Loki!


I'm Lucy, a 30-something woman who is trying to figure out this whole 'life' thing.

I'm bisexual and poly, living in North Wales with my partners J&S. I'm a home maker, love to bake and cook, and am a huge sci-fi fan. I'm also a little obsessed with journals/planners right now.

I haved lived for so long under the shadow of a number of mental health diagnoses, letting them define me rather than just be part of me. For too long I've been "Lucy the Schizo" and I want to find out who 'Lucy' is
Welcome aboard my journey. I'm glad you're here and looking forward to getting to know you as we get to know me!
