I woke up at 7am this morning, as per usual, but instead of lying in bed for a while, playing some stupid game on my phone, I decided to take Chaser out for a walk straight away. After all, going for a long walk on a Sunday morning is the best. No-one else is ever… Continue reading What day is it?
This is a series of posts where I reflect on beauty, skincare, makeup, etc products that I used up in 2019. You can read my previous entries here – Empty Thoughts Part I, Empty Thoughts Part II, Empty Thoughts Part III, Empty Thoughts Part IV, Empty Thoughts Part V, Empty Thoughts Part VI, Empty Thoughts Part VII and Empty Thoughts Part VIII. Also, if… Continue reading Empty Thoughts Part IX
Right, so, I was going to write about something completely different, but when I was looking for the photos I'd taken for that other post I stumbled upon the glorious progress pictures of a throw I made two years ago for my husband as a Yule/Birthday present and I felt the urge to share it… Continue reading When you don’t do a sample square…
Last night... A couple of hours ago I was just about to make myself a cup of tea when my husband shouted for me from upstairs. I was ever so slightly annoyed (I really wanted that cup of tea...), but went to see what he wanted anyway. He asked me to smell the bathroom at… Continue reading Oh, poop!
Lately I've been waking up at 6.30am on the dot. This means I've also needed to have horizontal life breaks half way through the day to be able to keep going (I don't generally do well with early wake-ups, you see). However, for one reason or another I haven't been able to have those little… Continue reading T’was a great horizontal life break
As in, I want to. Do you ever feel like you should be able to hibernate? I do. Have always done. Just imagine - getting to sleep for a few months and wake up all nice and ready for the world again. Boy do I envy bears right now. So, I have actually been quite… Continue reading Sleep
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
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!
You're on a holiday. Enjoying the peace and quiet. Relaxed. Nothing can disturb your serenity. Until you spot a wasp. No big deal. Get rid of wasp. Back to blissful seren... you spot another wasp. Hmm, that's a bit odd. Oh well, it happens. Get rid of second wasp. Forget about it. Later you're in… Continue reading What to do when the worst has happened?
