Peak Cheese

I can’t believe I’m typing this, but the day has come, and I just have to share it with you all. After extensive research, training, and pushing myself beyond the limits of what I thought was possible, it’s finally happened. The culmination of years of work. I have hit: peak cheese. Now, I enjoy cheese... 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 →

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...

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 →

Oh, and made a canine best pal as... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
