You know you've reached a new low when you sit down to watch a YouTube video of someone deep cleaning and organising their house to get motivated to do yours, but then feel so exhausted after watching the video that you feel like you need a nap instead. That's where I'm at right now. Surrounded… Continue reading Somebody kick me, please
Today sucks a bit. Like, not a lot. And not really. Just a bit. And mostly in my head. You know when you've got grand plans and everything is going so well one day but then along comes another day with another step in the process and it simply refuses to work? What am I… Continue reading Pfft
I did it and then I super did it. Last year my goal was to read 45 books and I read 53! That's a whole lot of books. Some of them were re-reads of old favourites, some audiobooks and most of them I read on my Kindle. Not that many actual physical paper ones. I'm… Continue reading 2019 Reading challenge complete!
I'm back. Kind of. Absolutely shattered and knackered, can barely keep my eyes open. But I'm here. Home. Behind my computer. Ready to write about my travels. And the lot. Our day started off quite relaxed, just needed to water the plants, tend to our critters, pack, do my nails and shower before leaving for… Continue reading 12/01/2020 – Travel day
Holy smokes. You know when you've got 20 tabs open on your browser, all with different means of transport, dates, times, prices, etc and you're trying to sort through them all, making your trip as smooth (and doable) as possible? I actually had to resort to Excel spreadsheets to make any sense of it. Writing… Continue reading Planning central
Hold your horses, 2020! I'm so not prepared for you! Who knew that getting the flu half way through December would throw me into complete disarray, leaving me nothing but fully discombobulated. Sure, at the time my head was so full of snot that I even managed to blissfully lie in bed and watch all… Continue reading I’m not ready yet!
You know when you're in 7th grade and have a crush on a 'cool guy' and one day he suddenly asks you a question and despite having imagined all the clever and witty conversations you could be having with him all you can produce instead in that moment is pure stupidity? And how it still… Continue reading Let it go!
I'm happy. It's been sunny, but frosty and bitterly cold (not cold enough to wear a coat yet [I think around -1 Celsius is the lowest it's been] but I have been wearing my scarf and hat!) so I've been for a walk every day and it's given me such contentment. Feeling my cheeks and… Continue reading At peace with everything
Who knew there could be such a simple solution to me feeling down and gloomy and overwhelmed? I certainly didn't, although after all these years I really should have done. Legally Blonde. Yup, the film from 2001 starring Reese Witherspoon. I've always loved this film and I've seen it oh so many times, but when… Continue reading Solution to my sad
I love snow. And I really miss it. Especially around this time of year. Everything is gloomy, the beautiful autumn colours are turning muddy and there's nothing to brighten it all up. That's where snow would usually come to play. Fall down in sweet soft flakes, cover everything with a glistening diamond blanket. Not in… Continue reading Snow, or the lack thereof
