We’re all just figuring it out as we go

Up early today and packed for a few days away in the BEAUTIFUL Scottish Highlands with family. We’ve got a long drive ahead of us, but I’m in high spirits and looking forward to quality time with some of my nearest and dearest. I know the Highland air is going to do me so much good. We’re staying in Kinlochleven – a village that’s full … Continue reading We’re all just figuring it out as we go

For the love of autumn

Happy Sunday lovely people and so sorry for the serious lack of posts this month. Life’s busy as ever and I’m super tired and blogspiration just isn’t coming at me as much as usual right now. I am doing my best to enjoy autumn in all its gloriousness though! And it really is glorious. Especially in Welwyn Garden City, where every road is lined with … Continue reading For the love of autumn

Every day’s a school day

I’ve learned three things this week. 1. Paddington Station is hands down the most confusing station in London and it’s no wonder Paddington Bear ended up lost and when he tried to navigate it alone. Friday night some super lovely friends and I had arranged to meet there, because we were kick-starting a night of celebrations by taking a GoBoat out on the canals. When … Continue reading Every day’s a school day

Next step, roast chicken

Sipping peppermint tea and as ever, trying to keep the Sunday night butterflies at bay – work is manic at the minute and whilst I’m actually looking forward to this week, I can’t help feeling a little nervous too. I’ve spent a little while deciding whether to write today. It’s been an overwhelming, monumental and sad week in the UK and across the world and … Continue reading Next step, roast chicken

All Storms Really Do Pass

Honestly? This week wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. On Tuesday, returning to work after the bank holiday, I had a really rubbish brain day. My head was full of fluff and anxiety and everything felt difficult. I stumbled through, but by the end of it, I had a mighty tension headache and tears in my eyes. Luckily, I have some wonderful people around me who … Continue reading All Storms Really Do Pass

Kitten Neutering/Spaying – Our Experience

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

A Fresh Perspective

It’s no wonder I haven’t felt like writing. The picture hasn’t really changed since I wrote my last post about taking life one scorcher of a day at a time. I’m still plodding through, trying to remember to drink water, eat well and shave my legs. And trying not to let the news get me down. The last few days have been better, in spite … Continue reading A Fresh Perspective

One scorcher of a day at a time

There’s absolutely no doubt it’s summer now: I’ve got an insect bite on my elbow which is so itchy I could scream, I have tan lines on my feet where my sandals should be and I’m running out of summery enough clothes to wear. As a winter girl, I’m trying to make the best of it. I am admittedly loving that our weekends are full … Continue reading One scorcher of a day at a time
