Learning, growing, sleeping. A New Zealand retreat.

I’ve been away for nearly two months, and I’m straight back into a new role at work when I get back. I want to give this my all, spend time with my neglected family and all my important people, and keep my momentum with newly forming long term goals. I’ll be focusing on my health...

Reinventing The ‘F’ Word

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman I believe in signs. I saw this advertised, had it recommended then nearly walked into the stand it was in my current local bookshop.

I do always like it when a book's chapters are split into the different characters, so you get a different... Continue Reading →

Let’s Do The Limbo!

It’s nearly time to go. But not quite yet. Just wait. Just a bit longer, a bit further. Flights are booked, but it’s not quite time to check in. The villa is getting back to its cave-like state, but I’ve still got an anxious knot about the amount of stuff we still need to get... Continue Reading →
