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

We’re all just figuring it out as we go

It’s been some time since my last post, it’s nearly party season and I’m still nowhere near full of beans. I am up early today and packed for a few days away in the BEAUTIFUL Scottish Highlands with family. We’re staying in Kinlochleven – a village that’s full of special memories for us a family. My Auntie Debra lived in a lovely little flat in … Continue reading We’re all just figuring it out as we go

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

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
