Glad You Could Make It

'Glad you could make it,' is a phrase that has been said to me often and somewhat sarcastically throughout my life. I don't intend to be late. I do try to plan and be on time.  Between the friends who have learnt to time check me (lie to me) and the ones I send the... Continue Reading →

{And Pause}

It’s been a busy old time recently, which may account for me being a little quieter on here. Trying to be involved in as much as possible and create a whole life in as short a space a time as possible apparently means you end up running on empty – who knew?! There are also... Continue Reading →

Just Say No, Kids!

Been having a lovely time getting to know my way around my new town. I've been to a food truck/ live music by the beach loveliness and I've been invited to a BBQ tonight! Don't get too excited for me but I might actually make some friends! (Before the year is out anyway. Hopefully. Maybe.... Continue Reading →

Namaste Here And Nap

Hot yoga. Where arriving late means not only being right at the front, but also by the draughty side door. The instructor was launching himself into new positions every few seconds whereas I was just bone tired. Like ok I'm unfit but surely not this bloody unfit to the point where each new pose is...

The hands of the little people in my life are proportionally tiny, often sticky, and lacking dexterity. The oldest one is nearly 7 and I still can’t pass anything to... Continue Reading →

This Too Will Pass

Ok. Why is mental health so difficult for me to write about? I don't really mind talking about it. In fact, more recently I feel like I've challenged myself to talk about it more. But when I come to write about it, everything sounds a bit 'wazzy'. Which is my word for 'a bit pretentious... Continue Reading →

It’s Not Really Goodbye

There are all sorts of emotional good byes happening as I prepare to move again. A perhaps unexpected one has been with The Tiniest Book Club. That's not to downplay thier importance, I simply haven't known these ladies very long. That said, the 'leaving' meet up last Wednesday was tougher than I was imagining. I've... Continue Reading →

Do You Believe In Miracles?

Let me introduce you to the Miracle Morning. Essentially a wonderful plan of making your day more balanced and productive. Set aside one hour to work on yourself – read, exercise, meditate, journal, plan, and see how it transforms your entire day. Your life even. I...Well. I read the book. I even made notes. You...

The Roller Riddle

Riddle me this. How many gins does it take for me to say I’m going to start Roller Derby as a new hobby? One. The answer is one rather lovely, fragrant, cardamom spiced gin. And tonic. That, and a one hour windmilling wobble around a roller rink with some friends. One of which happens to... Continue Reading →
