I absolutely love a good city break; they’re such a brilliant way to fit travel around full time work, are always good fun and tend to be relatively affordable since they’re not too long. I’ve been lucky enough to go on some really great ones over the past few years - but there’s always somewhere… Continue reading A European city break wishlist
The past month has been really good. I thought it probably would be, because I always find I feel driven and excited in September, so I was pleased to find that it lived up to expectations. I wasn't intending to dwell too long on it here - this post is supposed to be about October,… Continue reading Some aims for October
The other day, I popped to Superdrug to buy toothpaste, and as soon as I set foot in the place I remembered I’d also run out of concealer that morning.

Since I’ve now been blogging for 3 months or so and am just about in the swing of things (although I don’t know if I will ever get used to the levels of tired involved with doing this around a day job), I thought it was about time I considered what my aims are for… Continue reading My blogging goals (and they aren’t numbers)
It's quite easy to let tiny things bother you, isn't it? Just this morning I got very irate because Morrisons had run out of limes, which is actually pathetic. I'm also partial to a bit of loud sighing or a small tantrum if someone's on the piece of equipment I want to use at the… Continue reading 10 great little moments
