Even when you think you can’t you can

I hit rock bottom Wednesday morning. I felt extremely alone and I missed Dave terribly. I felt like I wasn’t going to be able to go on without things going back to the way they were. I couldn’t accept the change (even if temporary). And I didn’t want to either. I wanted to be able to pick up the phone and tell him to come … Continue reading Even when you think you can’t you can

A whole new year

Just finished washing up and my fingers are all wrinkly, as if I’ve just got out of a lovely long bath. My hair’s a total mess and I’m wearing an old jumper with pyjama bottoms, but I feel like writing for the first time in forever, so I’m smiling hugely (Hey there 2023 readers and thanks for sticking with me!). The lounge behind my laptop … Continue reading A whole new year

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

Girls just wanna have fun

Happy Sunday! It actually is such a happy Sunday in my world today. I’m full of banana and blueberry waffles, which were good for the body and soul when enjoyed with a coffee this morning. The sun is shining, but it’s nowhere near as hot and sticky in the flat as it has been the last few weeks. I’m just home from an absolutely wonderful … Continue reading Girls just wanna have fun

A Fresh Perspective

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 of temperatures being on the rise again. Mid-week … Continue reading A Fresh Perspective

10 Things To Do When You Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

One – Nothing, because you should listen to your body. You’re not lazy for taking a step back for a day and just being. Choose your comfiest possible clothes and just make sure you drink plenty of water and eat plenty too. Two – But if you really want out of your negative funk, how about Yoga? – Yoga is hardly any effort at all, … Continue reading 10 Things To Do When You Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

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

Remember when rock was young

Coming to you wearing joggers, with a massive mug of tea in hand. It has been an incredible weekend full of live music, good food and wonderful people. I’m feeling grateful but also, admittedly, a little worn out – thank goodness it’s Sunday. Today’s been everything I’ve needed. I’m thanking past Bronwen for leaving the day free of plans. On Friday, I had the absolute … Continue reading Remember when rock was young

An overthinker’s guide to to-doing

Morning! Sunday again and blog post time!  I’ve said it many times and I’ll say it again, I absolutely love Sundays. Especially, on a slow morning like this one, when I’m still feeling cosy at 10am, curled up on the sofa in my PJs.  The life-admin to-do list keeps growing, but I had more time on my hands this week, with less travel scheduled in … Continue reading An overthinker’s guide to to-doing
