Reading a whole book in 2 sittings when you've been unable to concentrate on a book in ages. Christmas presents in the post. Wrapping (despite the fact I hate it) well co-ordinated presents. Watching Drag Race and cutting out. Voices of Fire. Being able to use something time and time again because it works. Watching … Continue reading Happy times!
I used to regularly do happy things posts, but 2020 happened and I stopped reflecting on the things that make me smile and keep me going. (I've just looked and the last time I did one of these posts was in May... so yeah, a WHILE!) Today then, I am bringing back the happy post! … Continue reading Happy things…
Hello! So here we go: week 3 of lockdown. As I write this, we haven't had any updates on how long lockdown will be lasting, but I don't see it being over any time soon, and I certainly don't think my life will be going back to normal any time soon. I have days when … Continue reading What’s keeping you going?
Half term wins... Reading an awful lot of books. Going to London. Receving a proof I never thought I'd own. Sending messages to friends. Having a working date and actually being productive. Spending time with a twiglet and a Joey. Having many many delicious breakfasts. Being productive. Doing something I'm really proud of. Geordie Gifts. … Continue reading Half term wins
Hello! I've decided that I'm going to make Monday a "me" post day. By that I don't mean I'm going to be posting all about me... but it's not necessarily going to be a bookish day: it might be about school, about my life, about my MH: it'll be something personal, not necessarily bookish. It … Continue reading Monday = Me day
The start of a new decade is a funny thing. We all know I'm a proper sentamentalist and I'm an emotional person. Seeing everyone's posts about 2010 vs 2020 made me think about all of the things that happened to me from 2010-2019. I went into it thinking "I've not really achieved/done a lot in … Continue reading A decade in the life of me…
Hello! For those who have been reading my blog for a while, you might have noticed that I have been a bit absent for this month... I'll be honest, I was just TIRED. I suffer quite badly from SAD (Seasonal Affected Disorder) in Winter and this year it made me SO uninspired and indifferent to … Continue reading Where have you been?
Being a blogger is something that has taken over a massive part of my life and I love it. I sit on a Sunday and I blog. I'm very much a creature of habit. Sundays are dedicated to a bit of time in town. I come home, do some work for the week ahead of … Continue reading Being a blogger…
Having time to myself. Spending time with my favourite people. In jokes. Knowing that I can switch off and switch back on. Seeing my Welsh pal for the first time in forever. Train travels. Reading. Spending quiet time with people. Naps. Laughing a lot. Excellent food. Breakfast. Lots of breakfast. Lie ins. Hot water bottles. … Continue reading Half term happy post
Hello there friends. How are we all today? I mean, really, how are you today? I'll be honest... I'm OK, but there's a little bit of struggle about me at the minute. Nothing too bad, just a niggle here and there. Just a worry that won't go away. A thought that sometimes spirals and then … Continue reading It’s OK not to be OK
