Site Diary

The weekly update of what's happening (or not) with links to the most recent posts.
Hello and welcome to the front page! I'm Journeymouse (Jo Thomas in real life) and I dabble in writing speculative fiction and historical fencing. And a few other interests that may come up on occasion. I hope you enjoy your visit and please call again soon.
( I probably ought to mention that I don't attend all the HEMA / WMA events I mention and I don't know about all that happen. Let me know of any you think I should include!)
