I hate only seeing him for an hour before bed but it made yesterday even more special - even when he… Continue reading Getting my shit together, Will & Grace and actual me time #LittleLoves

Here’s to strong women.

I saw Star Wars Episode VIII in the cinema the other day and, in amongst trailers for Infinity War and Ready Player One, and ads for cars and mobile phones, I saw this: It made me think about the countless discussions I have with Luke about modern feminism. I totally support his arguments that there… Continue reading Here’s to strong women.

Star Wars, Unicorns and La La Land #LittleLoves

Not gonna lie, it's been a rough week. I've spent the last nine days battling a cold with a cough so bad it's actually made me vomit. Fortunately the doctor has reassured me it will soon pass and shouldn't delay my surgery but it's been hard going. All three of us are poorly and sharing… Continue reading Star Wars, Unicorns and La La Land #LittleLoves

Not only is it the start of a new month but also a new year. I've gotta say, I love these monthly round-ups and joining in with Stevie's linky. It's nice having a chance to reflect on what I've loved over the past month. I started the month mourning the loss of my youth, having… Continue reading My life in photos: December 2018 #LikedandLoved

My goals for 2018

Check out my Christmas in photos post from earlier in the week if you're a sucker for photos of cute kids and 'what I got for Christmas' posts. Of course, the week hasn't been all about Christmas.

Tried and tested: Make It Happen productivity tracker from Got 2 Jot

I often complain that there aren't enough hours in the day. With so many areas of my life competing for attention, it doesn't take much for one area to feel neglected and then all hell breaks loose. I'm an anal planner. I have diaries packed with meetings and hastily scrawled to do lists and I… Continue reading Tried and tested: Make It Happen productivity tracker from Got 2 Jot
