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. Everything except performing, which I actually did more then, than I do now. Of course, I had no idea that my fear of life would actually be labeled as an anxiety disorder years later. I … Continue reading Life Lessons from my younger self – Lesson One – Be More Daring

Week Fifteen

I’m wearing my sunny day t-shirt (under my biggest fluffy jumper because it’s chilly despite the sunshine) with my oldest, comfiest jeans. I’m munching on Bitsa Wispa in an attempt to satisfy the sweet tooth I’ve woken up with. I’m smiling because sunny Sundays are my favourite thing and I’ve already had three cups of tea today. This week’s been a bit of an emotional … Continue reading Week Fifteen

There are people who suffer much worse than I … Continue reading An honestly good week

I was so ridiculously happy when we eventually found ourselves sat on blow up chairs, in our new lounge, surrounded by our belongings, eating Chinese takeaway and drinking Prosecco. I’m still happy. I look around me now and I still don’t completely believe everything here is ours. Ours for the near future anyway. I can’t … Continue reading Butterflies find a new home

Time flies when you’re having fun

Last time I wrote I was going Christmas shopping and now Christmas has been and gone and a new year has begun. Can you believe it? I ended the school term on a high – my position at the school having come to an end. On my last day, everyone wished me well and said they hoped I’d pop by from time to time and … Continue reading Time flies when you’re having fun
