A mid-month catch up: September

Hello there one and all. This is the first in a new ‘regular’ post of sorts that I’m going to do – a monthly catch up, where I’m planning to just chat, diary style - the kind of everyday stuff that probably gets lost in other posts. It might be what I’m doing, what I’m… Continue reading A mid-month catch up: September

Missing: 1 x mojo, please return immediately if found

I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to write here, so bare with me while I offload a little. This will undoubtedly be somewhat self-indulgent - which most things I write are, I suppose – but feels needed all the same. This summer has been an odd one in several ways, and one of the… Continue reading Missing: 1 x mojo, please return immediately if found

A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

The 'confession' I'm going to share today seems strange considering that 1) I spend a LOT of time on the internet, and 2) I post a shameful number of photos of myself loitering in the street to illustrate my outfits. Obviously I put it in the title (the clickbait was ridiculous with just the first… Continue reading A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

On recognising what we really need – not just what we think we do

I don’t think there’s an hour that goes by that I don’t utter a sentence starting ‘I need to…’. The end of said sentence takes different forms, of course, but it’s usually along the lines of ‘get that done today’ or ‘reply to messages’ or ‘go to the gym’ or ‘be productive’. Last weekend it… Continue reading On recognising what we really need – not just what we think we do

Summer might actually be on the horizon and it’s making me excited

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Nicce I can smell summer approaching. Perhaps it’s something to do with our hottest early May bank holiday on record or perhaps it’s something to do with what’s flowering in parks and gardens, but over the past few days I’ve been gleefully breathing in the air in… Continue reading Summer might actually be on the horizon and it’s making me excited

It’s time to say goodbye to self doubt (because it’s making me completely fucking useless)

It took me a grand total of 57 minutes to reply to an email the other day. Fifty seven. Nearly an hour. The word count of said email? Also 57, if you exclude the greeting, pleasantries and sign off, which I will because I can and it works better for what I’m about to say.… Continue reading It’s time to say goodbye to self doubt (because it’s making me completely fucking useless)

A pre-spring slump (and how I’m riding it out)

My days at the moment all seem to go a little something like this; I half-wake, begrudgingly, at the sound of the alarm, but dragging my whole self out of the realm of sleep seems impossible. Despite this I start to scroll at something I can barely see – it’s my phone, obviously, and it’s… Continue reading A pre-spring slump (and how I’m riding it out)

On finally learning to enjoy learning

I haven't really enjoyed the process of learning for years. The book character that I was probably most compared to as a child was - classic noughties cliché alert - Hermione Granger. Not for having bushy hair (it’s always been fine and flat) or for being badass (I was a hopelessly wimpy), but for being… Continue reading On finally learning to enjoy learning

The things my future daughter should have complete, unwavering belief in

I feel I should really start by clarifying that hi, not pregnant, not referring to a daughter I just happen to have on the way. Last week, though, I was musing, as I often do, because I am a person who likes to muse a lot, quite often about nonsense but sometimes about actual, relevant… Continue reading The things my future daughter should have complete, unwavering belief in
