A few of my favourite things #86

How flippin' lovely has it been the last few days? I've been so grateful for the opportunity to take Jenson on a few adventures while we've been off work and nursery. Plus the weather has been gorgeous. Although I must remember to reapply the factor 50 regularly. Here's a look back at a few favourites.… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #86

What I’ve been reading lately #16

A few of my favourite things #85

Ugh, don't you just hate spring colds? Being stuck at home all weekend with a poorly three year old when you're feeling like shit yourself isn't at all fun. But every cloud - I managed to squeeze a film in. Here's a look back at some favourites from last week. Easter treats Before Germapalooza struck,… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #85

Book review: Roar by Cecelia Ahern

This post features affiliate links Cecelia Ahern is one of my favourite writers. P.S.

This post features a product sent for review purposes and all thoughts are my own] For the longest time, Jenson seemed quite content to draw by simply scribbling across a page with a single colour, not really creating any clear outlines. I tried encouraging him to draw something specific, copying me drawing… Continue reading Getting to grips with Stib pencils

Thoughts on The Multi-Hyphen Method

Careers. They're funny ol' things, aren't they? When you're little, you're asked what you want to be when you grow up. Then, when you're older, you're told to be a bit more 'realistic' with that dream. And work your ass off. You need the grades to do the course, then you're expected to work for… Continue reading Thoughts on The Multi-Hyphen Method

A few of my favourite things #83

Pinch punch and all that jazz. We're a quarter of the way through the year and you know what? I'm feeling strangely positive. I'm not sure if it's the weather, the workshops I've recently attended, or the hefty dose of folic acid I've been on for a couple of months now but something has changed.… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #83
