• The Good and The Bad About Working From Home

    A few years ago I distinctly remember saying two things ‘I never want to work from home’ and ‘I will never work for myself’, well fast forward to 2018 and here I am! Working from home wasn’t exactly a choice, it kind of crept up on me. I took redundancy from my job at a […]

  • My Dog Does Not Have Rabies

    After a short hiatus (I don’t think we use that word often enough in the English language), I decided that as a self-titled blogger, I should perhaps write a blog post every now and again. The other day I was having a chat with some other parents whilst waiting for our little darlings to go […]

A few resolutions about how we will do this year differently from the last, anything to keep us inspired through the long dark months following the festive season.

  • Ten Steps to Wellness: My Personal Plan For Feeling Better

    Last night I sat on the sofa just wasting time on the internet, mindlessly scanning websites and pages. I had some work to do, but just couldn’t get the motivation to do it, so I just wasted time. Part of the reason that I didn’t feel too motivated was because I was feeling pretty rotten. […]

  • WHY Does Summer Have To End?

    I love summer. Everything about it. I love sunny days, being by the beach, eating al fresco. When the weather is good we feel happy and motivated (although Brits in particular have been known to complain when it’s too hot, some of us are never happy).

    In my recent blog post Reasons To Be Cheerful #2 I ended with the following quote. Occasionally I like to blog about what a particular quote means to me. Kind people are often seen as weak people, someone who is naive or a bit of a mug and I don’t know how as a society we have […]
