About The Blog
Weird and Important is a blog about writing, being queer and having mental health problems. All while living in Wales and having a lot of cats and chickens.
It started as a simple place to get out all the words and thoughts and nightmares that rattle around my mind and became something bigger over time and is a vital part of my life. I hope to show that being bisexual is boring and normal. That having a mental illness is boring and normal. That all the weirdness in my life comes from the person I am, not my sexuality and not my disorders. All the weird stuff that goes on in my life is because I am surround by weird things. Jerk cats, and belligerent chickens, a completely insane family…

My name is Bread, I’m 34 years old, and live on the west coast of Wales.
I’m a poet, a geek, a gamer, an odd duck and a pharmacy dispensing assistant.
I’m married to the most amazing woman called KE who’s from New Jersey. We’ve been married for four years and are expecting our first child. I consider Wales my home, but am English by birth. I love living here – I’m close to my mum, my sister and her two kids, Taylor who’s thirteen and Poppy who’s five
We have four cats – Merry, Pogo, Reb Brown and Seymour and four chickens – Stevette, Renfield, Clorida and Krem and a rooster called Feathas. We also have a hamster called RuPaul.
I’m a poet, writing a lot of freeverse about anyone and anything.
I blog about everything that goes on in my life and a lot of poetry and writing, some mental health stuff (I’m diagnosed with BPD) and whatever else comes to mind.
I post pictures too, I dabble in photography and art, and post the results from time to time.
Why Weird and Important? Well, I was having a conversation with a friend about someone, a famous person, though I don’t quite remember who and I said, without thinking (as usual) – “I wish I was weird and important.” My friend’s reply was simply – “You are weird.” And I figured, I’m definitely important to someone. My mother, my wife, my niece and nephew.
