Friday Favourites

This week seems to have been the absolute longest in my life yet somehow it feels like last Friday was just yesterday! So here we go again with all my best bits of the week. #     Saturday was mostly spent either talking to the police or waiting for them to get back to […]

Happy Birthday To ME!

So, Monday was my birthday and I have been contemplating things. I realised that this is the first year where I haven’t been particularly unhappy in some aspect of my life and haven’t been actively trying to change something. Last year was my job, the year before was a handful of things, as where the […]

Friday Favourites

Here we go, it’s that time again. My favourite things from this week are… #     The OH and I cleaned the flat from top to bottom and cleared out every box, cupboard and bag that has been lurking since we moved in back in March. Not only is it now sparkly clean everything […]

The Great Laura Bake Off

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before but I’m totally enthralled with this year’s Great British Bake Off and I’m totally split between loving Cathryn or James more! Can they both win please? Baking is something I’ve loved doing since I was young and I used to make fairy cakes and apple pie with […]

New Year, New Me?

I read somewhere last week (I’m sorry I can’t remember where) that stated the writer of the piece doesn’t consider January 1st the beginning of the year. The calendar year, sure, her mental year, not so much. In fact, she continued, her year begins at the start of September and despite no longer being in education […]
