Tuesday Talks – Quarantine: week 6

I can’t believe we’ve been self isolating for 6 weeks now, It’s gone by so slow and caused a huge amount of mental strain but we are getting through this, and it won’t last forever. Life before this lockdown wasn’t all that different for me to be honest, I didn’t leave the house much and things were all done relatively similar, but for some reason, being stuck in this lockdown has caused my anxiety to sky rocket & I’m pretty clueless as to why. All I can think of is that my weekly out and about has been cut, so … Continue reading Tuesday Talks – Quarantine: week 6

A decade gone by…

2010 – Final school year & start of college studying Forensics. 2011 – Lost a friend, changed colleges, spent some time in Manchester, generally just tried to figure myself out. 2012 – Still needed some time to figure myself out, changed colleges yet again and this time started studying animal care and agriculture, turned 18, went to Disney World, got a little more outgoing. 2013 – Still not having a clue what i’m doing, I left college, started looking for a job, started volunteering, visited London for the first time, started becoming a little more independent. 2014 – Met the … Continue reading A decade gone by…

Another year on…

Hi, hello, it’s lovely to see you again or if you are new here and reading for the first time then hello and welcome to my blog, oh and happy new year! It’s been a hot minute since I sat down to write a blog post and in the time I’ve spent away it’s got me thinking about how much I miss it so starting now (January 3rd) I will be making a blogging comeback. I’ve had a year on and off and it’s all because I want to write but i’m such a perfectionist that I never finish writing … Continue reading Another year on…

Time to myself…

It’s always important to take time to yourself no matter who you are or what you do, alone time is a way of healing. My favourite way of spending some alone time to relax is a midnight bath, as soon as the child is relaxed and in deep sleep which is usually at midnight (anyone else have to fight their child hours after bedtime to get them to go sleep and stay in their bed?) I run the faucet, put some bubbles in, light the candles, put some Ed Sheeran on and get in. & I’ll sit there with just … Continue reading Time to myself…

Just a quick post…

Throwing out all my old school/college work for the first time in forever, I’ve held on to this paperwork for far too long now… Which made me realise I’ve been out of education now for 6 years why am I still holding onto this ‘junk’? It’s because this has been a constant reminder of my ‘failures’ and those times where I feel I didn’t try as hard as I should of and didn’t meet expectations of teachers, family members and friends. I never finished anything, I felt I was always having too much going on inside of my head, like … Continue reading Just a quick post…

January/February Wrap Up

Hello & Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening, wherever you are in the world. I’ve been a bit vacant lately, specifically since November-ish last year. I’ve not been coping so well since Christmas and my mental state has crashed slightly among other things going on so here’s a little recap of my year so far. Mental Breakdown…So i’ve started it off with a bit of a bombshell, I didn’t have the greatest end to 2018 or the best beginning to 2019. I was going through a shitstorm of different emotions and thoughts and since my grandad’s passing a few years ago, which makes every … Continue reading January/February Wrap Up

Kidlo – Toddler Learning Apps|A Review

Disclaimer: A few weeks back I was contacted and asked to honestly review these two children’s apps in return for a 3 month subscription to these apps, all content and opinions are completely my own. Now before I get started into the review, I just want to say how I used to be one of those mums that didn’t want my daughter growing up surrounded by technology and screens and certainly not watching Paw Patrol as part of her daily routine, however being in the land of technology that we are its simply impossible to do so. She can’t avoid technology … Continue reading Kidlo – Toddler Learning Apps|A Review

2018 July Overview – What have I been up to?

So last month I spoke about my goals and although I’m still working towards my goals I haven’t been so successful this month, therefore I’m going to write about what I did get up to. The whole month was so busy for me and I honestly couldn’t handle it. I know for most people this isn’t a very full month and I know people have bits going on daily but for me this is a lot going on and it definitely took its toll. 4th July – Made a Rabbit Hutch!! Yes I made/designed a beautiful pink indoor hutch, for … Continue reading 2018 July Overview – What have I been up to?

39 Desserts – A Blogger Event

On Tuesday the 10th of July I was invited to a bloggers event at 3 queen street in Cardiff celebrating their opening and establishment in the city for 5 months. Needless to say i’m absolutely amazed by this place, I admit I went in thinking KASPA’s as that’s the only other dessert place I can think of but this place blows it out of the water entirely! As part of the event, everyone who attended was able to pick a few items from the amazingly gorgeous menu to try. I chose the matcha green tea with the kinder bueno cookie … Continue reading 39 Desserts – A Blogger Event
