They had an off tasting bit of orange, they weren’t judging your life. Possibly?

I sometimes (who am I kidding) quite often question what I am doing in life. My work, my love life, the social side of things – basically everything that makes up life. Usually this happens very late at night or very early in the morning but question I do. And fret. Oh gosh do I… Continue reading They had an off tasting bit of orange, they weren’t judging your life.

A year on, what I would say (and add)

This morning someone ‘liked’ a blog post that I had written last year in June. I had obviously had a lot more time on my hands last year or because we were only just getting used to lockdown and doing nothing when not at work, I didn’t feel so guilty. Clearly I was listening to… Continue reading A year on, what I would say (and add)

Quite by Claudia Winkleman

Quite. A word that implies negativity. Not quite good enough. Sort of. Alright. But Claudia Winkleman turns that around in her fabulous non-fiction account. She puts quite as the level of expectation we should have for our lives. For our days, our experiences – everything. Put it this way. You go out for the day.… Continue reading Quite by Claudia Winkleman

Take another minute, always

One of my bugbears is always being in a rush. Or, more accurately, trying to cram so much into the little time I have that I end up running about trying to fit it all in. Stressing. Take this morning for example. I start work at 10. I woke at 7:30. In the time between… Continue reading Take another minute, always

One of those days

At the time of thinking about this blog post idea I was having one of those days. You know the kind. Behind before you’ve even started. Don’t know how you’ll fit everything in. Since then my one of those days has turned into one of those weeks. Months even. Hence the lack of blog posts… Continue reading One of those days

As good as it gets – the supermarket

We are all very used to the idea of a trip to the supermarket being as good as it gets. Especially for the past few months it has been about all we have been legitimately allowed to do. No longer do conversations go: “How was your week off?” “Great, we went to Spain. It was… Continue reading As good as it gets – the supermarket

My Lockdown Google.

I think at some point this year we’ve all been in one or more of these places… GOOGLE THE CONFUSION! Here goes… Nearest OPEN takeaway near me… How to wear a Facemask… Which face coverings are acceptable? Is it acceptable to guide others on how to wear a face mask? What are the COVID rules?… Continue reading My Lockdown Google.

I’m not crying, you are – Adulthood in a nutshell

I have a dear friend who always says about the importance of a good cry and no better time than the present for this to ring true. NB: This isn’t a negative post but more celebrating the goodness crying does for us all. Being a girl, I am obviously aware of the feeling of wanting… Continue reading I’m not crying, you are – Adulthood in a nutshell

Some things I’ve learnt in the pandemic…

This year is so strange, isn’t it? When it all began I was so sure it’d be over by now. Instead, I’m chilling with my dog, listening to it all over the news and not allowed into my bedroom because my sister is working from home. This virtual existence is odd. A new job and… Continue reading Some things I’ve learnt in the pandemic…
