Until further notice

I’m the happiest of Bronwens today. Autumn simply is the second most wonderful time of year (Christmas being the most wonderful time of the year, of course) and I’m so happy it is here. What’s not to love? Good TV. Jumper weather. Beautiful crisp colourful leaves. Monthly reasons to get together with friends and family and have a good time in the form of Halloween … Continue reading Until further notice

Still twenty-something, still lost, still smiling

Old habits die hard. Life still feels as complicated as ever. You can tell life has been a little crazy, because long gone are the days of blog posts written every Sunday without fail, always about lazy days at my parents’, roast dinners and good books and sunshine or rain. Funnily enough, I actually did spend this Sunday just gone at my parents’. I slept … Continue reading Still twenty-something, still lost, still smiling

No Place like Brighton

I spent last weekend in Brighton with four girl friends, celebrating my friend’s birthday and I fell in love. I arrived in Brighton tired, hungry, sweaty, clueless and with heavy bags in tow after a very long day at work. The lively atmosphere gave me an immediate boost. Between the squeals of girls on hen nights, the excitable chatter of everyone around, the yells from … Continue reading No Place like Brighton

It’s complicated

We, people in general, tend to overcomplicate things. Life’s fairly simple when you think about it. We’re born. Some things go wrong and some things go right. Some of us are lucky and some of us are incredibly unlucky. Some people like us and some people don’t. We make friends and we lose them. Then at some point it all has to end and most … Continue reading It’s complicated

Let go of the familiar and embrace the new

I was super happy and excited, but goodness I was nervous. A small part of me was just rationally worrying about the new job itself. Whether I’d be able to do it, whether the people would be as nice as I hoped, whether I’d impress like I wanted to. I was also having nightmares. Nightmares that varied from stressfully realistic to scarily weird. I had … Continue reading Let go of the familiar and embrace the new

The aftermath

Easter weekend’s been and gone. Friday was a lazy hazy day. Dave and I ordered takeaway, watched films, I read, he played games. It was wonderful. Saturday morning, I met two great friends I haven’t seen in too long in London for brunch. It wasn’t as posh as it sounds though. Sorry to ruin the magic, but we ordered greasy fried breakfast in Wetherspoons at … Continue reading The aftermath

Learning to be all kinds of happy

I’m sat on the sofa by the window, getting blinded by the sun, but refusing to shut it out. I’m two chapters from the end of Harry Potter so when I’m done writing, I’m finishing it. Then I’m rewarding myself with a cream egg or two before taking a deep breath and picking up the very important looking paperwork that came in the post from … Continue reading Learning to be all kinds of happy

Mind over matter

Recently, my beautiful cousin wrote a blog on mindfulness. (It’s well worth a read and the link is at the bottom of this post. I’ve also included the link to a mindfulness meditation video which helped me heaps.) And I mention it because even more recently I discovered just how practicing mindfulness can help. In the spirit of being honest, when I first read my … Continue reading Mind over matter
