The Beast from the East and the start of March

What can I say the weather has really been truly phenomenonal over the past couple of days. It started on Tues night past with a little snow then progressed into Wednesday a lot more, work HQ sent me home at 2pm on wed 28th Feb that was a long journey about a hour and a half. The snow was incredible but little did anyone now that was just the beginning of it Thurs the beginning of march was a complete White out. I kept wearing my uniform expecting to get to work at somepoint even though buses cancelled on Wednesday night, I think it was about lunchtime when they gave up and entirely cancelled the buses and it became a snow Day. Unfortunately my parent was having ear problems due to the pressure in the air and a strange allergic reaction had swollen her eye so probably just as well as was off as was taking care of her. Friday came and the snow still present the buses didn’t get back until lunchtime phoned the office and was advised under no certain circumstances to try to come in I was miles away and it wouldn’t be worth the problems it would cause. That meant another day caring for parent who was stir crazy and we needed cream for eye so it was a snow expedition down to Ocean Terminal the boots to get some through thick snow. I haven’t seen snow like this since I was a small kid and it came out the middle of nowhere having been mild the week before so this storm definitely deserved it’s name and now in it’s aftershock it’s meeting another storm freezing rain due. I doubt we will see spring yet despite being March on social media I saw the cutest pic of a new born lamb in a stable under a heat lamp with a Robbin so the weather is going truly daft. To anyone who reads this Note stay well, warm, Safe and don’t do anything too foolish. Maybe we will see Spring midmonth.

My biggest respect goes to LRT bus drivers thanks for keeping the city moving the nurses, auxiliaries, EMTs and everyone working through this bad weather.

All my best wishes and Hugs with Blessings Harp


Memories of weekend

Harp here I have to say that a enjoyable weekend has past the weather wasn’t that great but the company was. I managed to have both my guys which always makes me happy we managed to fit in two kink events RB and SK one Glasgow the other Edinburgh. Thankfully I had Monday off as I would have never been able to pull this one of otherwise. At first it was only meant to be one but by a fluke of coincidence my gimps friend car broke down so ended up giving him a lift back to Loch Lomond and his usual shitty work shifts had been kind for once he was going to be able to do SK through in Edin too😁 so I thought why not as this doesn’t happen that often pretty much blue moon occurrence. I was right when I said to a colleague that giving him a session would be cathartic it truly was I greatly enjoyed it and he did also it certainly took his mind off recent troubles and it was more than fun to have him at my mercy 😉

Though by the next day his mind was going yay second helpings maybe his body wasn’t as enthusiastic as I had literally gone to town on him thinking that would be my only opportunity. After second helpings I doubt that he could sit comfortably and probably just as well that the train back was full of rugby fans so unfortunately he could not. I look forward to catching up with both my men again and I hopefully will get my third man out too as I haven’t seen him in longer he is becoming a recluse and he needs to socialize with us all again. Just wish that V Day was not on a Wednesday this year and although I managed to give my Mistah J his card I went and lost my main man DS card literally I have a head like a wet lettuce at times, but I am very lucky to have two men sometimes three in my life who all know about each other and are ok about it and care for me love them all loads. May anyone reading this spend Wednesday or the weekend with those they love and if you care for someone let them know by note by email by even the phone life is to short to not do so and be someone’s reason to smile not just on Valentine’s Day but all through the year surprise someone be spontaneous have courage to start a conversation you never know where you might end up have fun and be Safe also.

Much love and Hugs from

Black and White

Hi all still in the depths of work HQ and it’s looking like I might be for sometime yet.

The name of this article comes from a conversation I had with a work colleague who although she is salt of the earth and a rough diamond with a heart of gold she sees things as the above.

Things can either good or bad black or white no inbetween level. I was referred to earlier in the week as being a hippy because of my Wiccan ways I believe in crystal therapy and how it helps the body and natural remedies instead of conventional modern medicine though it has it’s place. I explained to her I am by no means a white witch I’m more of a greysider walking the line of twilight, of which she asked is there evil witches why must everyone jump to a conclusion. I explained to her there are dark witches of which I got a reply of do you know any of them I said yes some Luciferian witches are good friends, cripes I shouldn’t have used that word she automatically thought devil worshiping witches of which I had to explain that isn’t the case as Lucifer is a fallen angel and the keeper of truth and a light bearer at this point I think her head was going to go bang. I got the answer of I thought you would say I don’t know any evil witches really I should know better than to get into a theologically themed debate with my particular colleague. I am happy that I didn’t explain familiars or demon pacts to her as she would have got the complete wrong end of the stick. It makes me wonder how can people go through life thinking we are the only ones here that their aren’t other life forms or other dimensions this frankly puzzles me. At times I wish I was one of them but then I realize that no I don’t as my mind will always quest for the truth which is why I doubt I will ever be white I’m more grey but part of me wishes for the knowledge but doesn’t want to go down the Luciferian way as I feel it’s like Pandora’s box once you have the knowledge and have experienced it you might wish that you had stayed unaware blissfully but you can’t unlearn so here I am walking the thin line between day and night remembering that even in the darkest night there is the hope of dawn that glimmer of light and I think that is what the world and everyone needs to remember at present while thing’s go strange around us hold on to the hope.

Stay well and happy Kindest Regards and Best wishes always Harp xx

Tribute to a lost friend

Well the start to 2018 has definitely been tumultuous due to being kept in work HQ OPD6.

This piece gets it’s name for a good online friend by the name of Megan Page who I met via FB art groups. Never would you find a woman with a more mischievous side one year she gave me a cock pen and keyring took forever explaining that one to the parent when they came in the post. We chatted about everything colouring and art based along with life in general and men she gave the best advice on that subject. I will always remember when a designer artist we helped out on FB by colouring his images he chose a fab one of Megan’s and made it the image to advertise the artpiece I had to advise her he had at first and she was so excited that followed many other of her images getting showcased. Megan had so much talent and she was a genuinely good person. Living in East London in Africa took me a while to figure that one out, I always thought it would be the riots or the Dodgy government over there that would eventually catch up to her at somepoint and embroil her in strife it certainly wasn’t the safest place to live but she loved it. She lived with her husband Brad a teenage daughter and two younger sons and it looked as if everything was going well for Megan. The past New Year she even teased me with a picture of hot weather on the beach with her son little did I know that two days later a day after her 33rd birthday that she would suffer a stroke. This ended her up in hospital they tried drugs this didn’t work so they put her into a medically induced coma to see if the body would recover unfortunately it didn’t she never woke up she died Tuesday past so damn sad leaves children and husband but if I know Megan she probably fought to the end but he body gave up to being to tired. I wish she had recovered so much but it would have taken a lot of work to get her back to full capicity. On Tuesday past the shining 🌟 that I knew was Megan went off to become a actual star and hopefully look over us all from above. I hope her soul is at peace and that she was able to cross over without too much pain. My heart goes out to her mother husband Brad and their children it’s going to be hard but I hope he keeps the memory of Megan alive and advises those kids as they grow how much she loved them as I think as long as the memory is still alive even though the person is no longer with us that is what is needed. It was a honor to know the star that was Megan I only wished she had stayed on this plain a bit longer.

Hopefully the next update Will be more cheerful my advice is if you love someone tell them if you can make someone smile do so if you want to talk to someone do it now email or call them as tomorrow is never guaranteed folks be with those you love and make you happy.

All my very best wishes and blessings Harp xx

Happy Holidays everyone and a festive update.

Waves to all well the season of goodwill came around again and I’m glad to be off as my battery was severely depleted at work HQ been there since early September the powers that be now free of work HQ till the 8th though back to usual work on the 3rd thankfully it shouldn’t be as nutty.

The year has passed and the wheel has turned to the start again it finds me oddly reflective. As although grans house has been bought since April passed still nobody living in it I have to pass it each day on my way to work and part of me finds that sad as I so wanted it to be full of life fun and love but I guess that was a pipedream.

The end of the year finds me grateful for my Mistah J and we have a closer connection than ever before that has been keeping me sane at times. Still with DS but he’s depressed due to nothing on the job front unfortunately. Hopefully this year my parents health will improve as she’s had a difficult year and I want for her to only get back to what she wishes to be as much as she can. As for myself the only thing I want for is more time with my guys who are dear to me and the family who are close.

Recently I read that T May thinks this is a Christian country there I disagree as I’m Wiccan and I’m sure there are many other faith’s that make up this great country. Also Christ was not born around this time think about it he was born closer to the spring.

On that note I wish you and yours the best festive period and Happy Holidays whether it was Yuletide, Hanukkah, Kwanza or Xmas whatever one you celebrate enjoy and have a great new year all😀

First attempt at baking 

Thought I would share a success story from the weekend past. I was due to attend a housewarming party of aunt and friends down in the depths of Tyninghame by Berwick. Already had Housewarming gift a bottle of really nice gin, but I decided since no shops down there I would do some muffin baking. I approached the kitchen full of dread not knowing how they would turn to out to be honest I thought I would fail so parent stepped in to guide. Between the two of us it was a enjoyable pastime despite being nervous as hell and parent going baking is supposed to calm you down. In the long run I managed to make three dozen that night we left them to cool and would ice in the morning. Though and behold in the morning the icing was determined to misbehave one batch came out perfect the other not so weird as made the same. After a trip to the shops for cream and jam we saved them. Took them of to Tyninghame by car in cake cases surprised they survived country roads. Arrived at cottage and produced said muffins everyone seemed taken back and thrilled with them. Placed them on the table and they were disappearing fast I was getting compliments from everyone it made me very happy to know the were appreciated. Unfortunately I put aunts torte in the shade as everyone was too busy eating muffins. I will try again but for work colleagues if still in HQ closer to Christmas. Thanks for reading.

Hugs and stay well blessings 


Versatility and Adaptability 

Hi all helper elf Harp from work waving to all. It seems that the above is the order of the day in work at present due to fun rotational systems. I do admit I am enjoying it but have had to employ lateral thinking especially when ending up in different areas. Here is a admittance before I started the fortnight that I just finished in work I was scared shitless as all I had was a quick go through the Fri before I thought this new area will all fall about around my ears. The first week I didn’t really know what was what till midweek then towards the end it got better. When I was advised that I was doing a extra week cover due to shortages in the area I wasn’t surprised. The start of the second week improved by midweek I was flying even if doing things ever so slightly differently. When it got to the end of today it was a bizarre happy sad I was happy to be heading back to a area I knew better,though sad to be leaving it as things were finally behaving. Finding out later in the day yes we will keep you up here for longer. Variety is the spice of life and it makes work challenging and enjoyable but I wonder is my versatility and my adaptability going to be my undoing am I preventing others from learning and taking a chance? No I’m not going to stop helper elfing as I still enjoy it as it keeps my brain working over several areas never a dull moment the day and weeks fly by and I like it that way more than a dull stagnation. Therefore I recommend the life of a helper elf to anyone but I will say your doing it for your own enjoyment and sanity. The fact that it helps management is definitely a plus but I’m not going to advise or order management that they should make more of me. It should be up to that individuals choice whether they wish to or not. A good friend and a colleague referred to me as the lion for having no courage and not facing up to management and advising that everyone every does it and not just me. I don’t wish to do that as I don’t feel picked on or victimised I feel needed and wanted by several areas. While out grabbing dinner I met someone who saw me in a different area in work and twigged ah that’s where I know her from it felt good. The only thing is while in HQ it does tend to make you more accessible that’s the only bit I sometimes don’t like. These days though it seems as though Versatility, Adaptability quick learning and people skills are the aim of the day. Also don’t worry I still love the colleague who called me the lion out of wizard of Oz loads as she is affectionately known as the tinlady (tinman)

Thanks for reading this ramble and I’m back to my core speciality next week and it will definitely fly. 

Kindest Regards and Best wishes stay well and happy 

Blessings from Harp xx
