“In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist.” – Angela Davis. I need to do better. Tuesday was #BlackOutTuesday but one day is not enough.

Podcasts are mentioned a lot these days and you can find one on pretty much any topic. I started listening to podcasts, well one, about two years ago but instantly became hooked… It wasn’t until towards the end of last year that I began to get more into podcasts as opposed to just the one… Continue reading PODCASTS: MY FAVOURITES
Last week I posted my first ever Small Business Saturday post. Like I said in that post, I had a fair few businesses to mention so split the post in two because I didn’t and don’t want to gloss over any business. Closet Geek I have followed Closet Geek for so long on instagram but… Continue reading SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY #2
A topic everyone is talking about right now. Understandably so, and I feel like putting my two cents in. I have been working from home for 5 weeks now and have had 2 weeks Easter holidays thrown in and it has been weird. As a primary school teacher, my days are usually filled with 20+… Continue reading PRODUCTIVITY DURING LOCKDOWN?

A few drinks too many on the Saturday saw me being very lazy on the Sunday and eating… Continue reading #SUNDAYWELLSPENT – NOVEMBER

I’m trying to make a conscious effort to spend my weekends well. While duvet days are sometimes a necessity, I do… Continue reading #SUNDAYWELLSPENT – OCTOBER
July of this year saw me having an incredible two weeks in Orlando, Florida with Ian. This trip had been a long time coming. I had been to Orlando twice previously, once in 2003 and once in 2007, and for our (almost) six-year relationship, I had been bugging Ian about going together. When we booked,… Continue reading A FORTNIGHT IN THE SUNSHINE STATE
Hello, it has been far too long! I haven’t blogged in about 8 months but truthfully, my heart hasn’t really been ‘in it’ since Summer 2018. However, for a while I’ve been contemplating a ‘relaunch’. I have missed blogging. This hasn’t just been an on the whim decision, I’ve been working on a new look… Continue reading I’M BACK!
