Searching online in the lead up to the kittens’ neutering op, I struggled to find an honest account of the whole experience anywhere. And so I’m writing this in the hope it helps a nervous new kitten-owner somewhere prepare. Before I say anything more though, I am no expert. This was simply our experience and from what I gather, all kittens are different and the … Continue reading Kitten Neutering/Spaying – Our Experience

Life Lessons From My Younger Self – Lesson Three – Growing up is not all bad

It’s 2021, which explains the long hair. I’m wearing my favourite PJs from Fearne Cotton’s Cath Kidston collection. They’re covered in pictures of stars and flowers and paw prints and bumble bees and dinosaurs too. They’re super comfy, they make me smile and they’re my go-to on a cold winter’s evening after a long hot shower or for weekends away, whatever the season. I’ve got … Continue reading Life Lessons From My Younger Self – Lesson Three – Growing up is not all bad

Life Lesson From My Younger Self – Lesson Two – My Truly Happy Place

It’s funny, normally when we think of children, we picture them moving through life at 100mph, never being able to focus on one thing for too long without getting bored. But when I think of little Bronwen, sat for hours in a chair reading a book or playing house, I remember I didn’t always have to be busy to be happy. From memory, I was … Continue reading Life Lesson From My Younger Self – Lesson Two – My Truly Happy Place

Life Lessons from my younger self – Lesson One – Be More Daring

In 2010 I was just finding my feet. I’d turned 16 but I was a little behind really. I was still very shy and I was scared of absolutely everything.

10 Reasons You Should Read More

One – Reading is for everyone. Okay, so you read one book by Dan Brown and you couldn’t handle the suspense, or decipher the intellectual gobbeldy-goop. I’d disagree with you when you said you didn’t enjoy it, but I wouldn’t judge you for it. Maybe you’ll say that means reading isn’t for you. Except there are millions of other books out there, all different. There’s … Continue reading 10 Reasons You Should Read More

Is Tidying Your Work or Study Space a Waste of Time?

For those of us whose moods are hugely influenced by our surroundings, creating a space which makes us feel positive can feel like the most important step towards being productive.  And yet, this can mean starting work, or picking up that next assignment that much later because we dedicate considerable time to tidying, music selecting and sometimes even heading elsewhere in search of that positive … Continue reading Is Tidying Your Work or Study Space a Waste of Time?

Five Things I Wish I’d Known Before Getting Kittens

Number 1: They’re absolutely tiny, breakable and yet super adventurous. I was not prepared for just how fragile 8 week old kittens would seem. Everyone talks about how resilient cats are and to be fair, by the time these girls were three months old they seemed invincible, but in those first few weeks they didn’t seem resilient at all. They were tiny and delicate and … Continue reading Five Things I Wish I’d Known Before Getting Kittens

8 Life Lessons I’ve learned from working two jobs

One – Live in the moment. I’m sure you’ve heard it said before and believe me I know it’s easier said than done. Seeing as over-thinking is in my anxious nature and planning ahead is all that normally keeps me sane, I always brushed living day by day off as impossible. HOWEVER, my rota changes every week now and life’s so much simpler. I have to … Continue reading 8 Life Lessons I’ve learned from working two jobs
