First Quarter Thoughts

Good morning April, and good morning reader. It’s been a little while, but I’m finally sitting down and putting hands-to-keyboard and tapping out some thoughts. It’s been a bit of a peculiar year so far, and one that is panning out rather differently to those previously. I could try making excuses as to my noticeable online absence, or the fact

I’ll start with an apology for quite how late this week’s post is. I haven’t been all that well which has meant my evenings have been spent snoozing on the sofa with all the intentions of getting my act together and catching up with online work, but in reality I’ve done very little. Sometimes rest is needed. But anyway, back

2018

Perhaps a bit of a delayed start, but welcome 2018. The beginning of this year has felt a little bit different. Usually I feel a definite divide between the end of one year and the beginning of the next; an excitement for change and all things new, but this year has felt more fluid, more of a blur where December

Merry Christmas 2017

And now for one you’ve all been waiting for – the puppy Christmas photo of 2017. These two little scruffy creates enjoyed their annual posing session complete with costumes and plenty of treats, and looked as cute as ever. That also means it’s time for me to sign off for another year, and wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

Feeling Festive (& Why It’s Okay if You Don’t)

We all know Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year – we’re told it repeatedly in songs and movies, and it’s traditionally a time of joy and happiness. When you’re young, it’s easy to tap into the excitement and keep that Christmas spirit going, but sadly it doesn’t always work that way in the real world. Although Christmas

‘Tis the season of festive loveliness! Today marks just two weeks until Christmas and so I thought it time to share a few things putting a smile on my face at the moment… * Decorations (everywhere!).¬†You can’t walk down the street without seeing lights, baubles and wreaths and I love it! It might be freezing cold and often raining, but

On Self Care & Chocolate Chip Cookies

December marks one of my favourite times of year. It’s getting cold and dark but it’s cosy inside and there’s plenty to be thankful for. It’s the perfect time to get into a good routine of looking after yourself before the full depths of winter set in, and a great time to practise some self care. For those that suffer
