{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 →

Trust The Joy (Just Hold Your Breath)

Hello! Ever wondered what you’d do if you decided to upend your whole life and move to the opposite side of the world? The why doesn’t really matter, you can think up something really dark and dramatic if you like. But just imagine you’ve done it, you’re there, you look around you...now what the hell...

Course I Want Jellybeans With That

It's the weekend!! Finished my first week in work and slowly getting to grips with life here. Went to the theatre on Friday and ended up volunteering to help with front of house next week. As you do. Today I've been revelling in bare feet and black sand. Also realising I need to look where I'm... Continue Reading →

This Is Not A Drill! Or A Dream.

Alert! I am not on holiday! Yes, ok I haven’t worked in a month and I’ve been having a lovely old time, but I do start my new job tomorrow so it’s a timely reminder that I’m not on holiday here! This is good because it means: 1) I didn’t dream it, I actually did... Continue Reading →

It’s a left, right? Right. Wait…

Less than a week in, and the feeling of overwhelm has receded to lapping waves rather than crashing tsunamis. After being welcomed into the country by two awesome friends in Auckland, I’ve been shown around my new town by two extremely kind and ridiculously helpful new friends. Oh, and made a canine best pal as... 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 →

No Exit, Taylor Adams

I have a feeling this was a 'Kindle Reccomends' offer as it's right up my street but I don't remember searching for it! Darby Thorne is just trying to get home. Her plans upended by an upsetting message from her sister, and she’s attempting to get through a terrible snow storm at the last minute.... Continue Reading →

Tiny Book Club Update

  The Tiniest Book Club has been up and running for a few months now. And the members are all kinds of wonderful. Ok, it’s mainly that they love books, drink gin and let me be kind of in charge. Thinking about it, that has definite potential as my new dating profile...*Ahem* I’ve said it... Continue Reading →

The Tiniest Book Club

  My most recent time away made me think. A lot. About life, the universe, how I spoke to that shop assistant back in 2003 and if I should track them down to apologise...but also about community. For more on why, read here. I knew I wanted to retain some of that when I came... Continue Reading →

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...
